Sometimes you need a movie to just pick you up and carry you away, for a little while, from your reality. It’s a brutal world out there, BBs, and there’s no shame in needing to take a lil break.

Close your eyes and let our dulcet tones lead you deeper into Hayao Miyazaki’s Spirited Away. Our conversation includes:

* Teen Girl Squad (her name is “What’s Her Face”)
 vacation drinks: pina colada vs. long island vs. coconut milk
*How I Met Your Mother
*Full House/Fuller House
*
Top 5 Miyazaki Movies
*the unique deliciousness of anime food
*a Secret History of No-Face
*”I’M NOT DRUNK, I’M JUST GOOD-LOOKING.”
*Do you recognize the name Deveigh Chase? You should.
*Yubaba + Professor Slughorn = ugliest Slytherin babies ever
*the movie as “gateway drug” to anime, as comment on child prostitution, as coming-of-age story, as environmental sermon
*Japanese urban legends
All Fantasy Everything
*2nd Opinions, games and more (AND MORE)!

Thanks for listening, y’all!

* Morgan’s surprise mustache (again) *Mic’s outrageous bush *Rowling’s difficulty writing a sequel to Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s/Sorcerer’s Stone *comparative word counts of each of the Harry Potter books *the difficulties of working child actors *outbreaks of LICE on the set of the movie *candy smuggling (Tom Felton was the main culprit) *the implacable advancement of death in the series *racism, possession and murder…in a children’s book?*why and how the Weasley family is poor *the wizarding world’s economy *a definitive rating of the Molly and Arthur’s favorite children *the sex lives of House Elves *the horrible justifications for House Elf slavery *nepotism and avarice in the Malfoy family *would you rather fight Aragog or the basilisk? *a Secret History of the basilisk...

AND THEN APOCALYPSE. Thanks for listening, BBs! Doncha’ worry – we’ll get our tech sorted (someday).
