Satsuki and Totoro

Satsuki and Totoro: Waiting for the bus, in the rain.

I’m really just testing my Flickr “blog this” settings. I haven’t used this or Flickr in a long while, and I started fooling with it tonight. So, there ya go! It is Totoro and Satsutsi and Mei, waiting for the weird cat/bus thing in the rain, from one of the most memorable scenes of Totoro.

Tangentially related, I have yet to see Ponyo, but I really want to. Also only-roughly-in-linear-thought: there are a few 1/18 scale animation style figures from this scene (and another one, I can’t remember which, though). Basically, a set is something like 14-21 small figures (I can’t remember that either), finely detailed, and each is like the next animation frame … so it is the same figure, just slightly different, as if taken from the animation cel following the previous figure in the series. I’m not a “figures” guy, but these looked really nice, and would look so nice in a decent case …

As soon as I run out of trivial things to spend money on, maybe I’ll pick one up.

This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.
