Everyone go congratulate mateoida
for making it into the finalists
of the Rising Stars of Manga
with her story "Girl/Boy"!
Via Jean Snow
for the new Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in the Shell
) film, Fast Food Bandits
. It's animated, but it's using anime animation techniques and stereotypes on photographs of people. I think it's got the potential to be either really entertaining or immensely annoying. Either way, I'll catch it when I can.
I'd intended to sit down last night with my cookbooks and make a grocery list with several dishes to make tonight and this weekend, but forgot to. And today I realized: I work in a library, it's bound to have cookbooks. Yup, it does. ( and now I really really wnat to try thisCollapse )
I also checked out The Anthropologists' Cookbook
on the basis of the title. It appears to be a collction of info about eating and meal customs around the world, with sample recipes.
My reviews of the first ten finalists in this year's Rising Stars of Manga

XD
And the final 10 of my reviews of this year's Rising Stars of Manga finalists
What I really have to say to everyone who is thinking of entering the next one: you know
that the finalists will be posted online. Use a bigger font, dammit! Nobody will vote for your story if they can't read
your story!( Read more...Collapse )
