A small complaint about my recent move: my chances of seeing Spirited Away in a theater may have gone down quite a bit. The film is in a slow, gradual release. I have no idea if it was even going to play in Buffalo, and now that I’m in an even smaller town than Buffalo, I may miss out entirely.
But I have high hopes. One bit of niftiness came at our new local grocery store, which has a typical Halloween-type display with big cutouts of cartoon characters in Halloween outfits. This place actually included Kiki from Kiki’s Delivery Service, a Totoro from My Neighbor Totoro, and the dragon from Spirited Away. To see these characters in a grocery store display was somehow deeply satisfying.
