"Japanese Walt Disney"
This morning I just happened to catch the fact that Turner Classic Movies is running a tribute to Hayao Miyazaki (maybe just this month?) on Thursday nights. Here is an excerpt from their biography article about him:
"Known as the 'Japanese Walt Disney,' Hayao Miyazaki is one of his country's outstanding directors of animation. His internationally admired animated adventures include the epic Princess Mononoke (1997), a tale of a mythic battle between humans and forest animal gods that at one time was the highest-grossing film in Japan's history. It was later surpassed by an even bigger boxoffice hit, Miyazaki's Spirited Away (2001), in which a young girl stumbles into a mysterious spirit world."
You can read the rest here and look for the show times of his movies on the TCM Schedule.
By the way, hopefully you have kept peeking around the corners here at the Dra Studio. Jodie and I have been hard at work updating and revising things together, all for your benefit. Since so many people have asked about them, the next big thing to be re-added will be Jodie's immense collection of desktop pictures; followed closely by more additions to the Portfolio section.
Is there some feature you would like to see at Dra Studio? Something we're missing? Let us know!

- Great Things Have Landed
- It's finally here! The newest version of the DRA Studio (up to Revision #13 now ... wheh!) is up and running. I will be doing the PC browser testing tomorrow before I leave work, so the general layout should be all set soon. I will also be updating the Decorate portion with a slew of Desktop ...
- Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (2009)
- 4 out of 5 man-eating super-sized turkeysWith Jodie gone for a whole Sunday afternoon, singing at Candlelight for the Mouse, I found myself with hours to spare and a cheap dollar theater nearby in need of someone to watch their movies. I never read the book as a kid, but I thoroughly enjoyed the great animated ...
- In case you have been sleeping with your computer off, there are plenty of fun and funky fresh things happening here at the Studio. Mill around, get aquatinted and try not to eat all of those mini-hot dog things! Check out the rest of the FCC Roundup photos here! ...
