I told Miyazaki I love the “gratuitous motion” in his films; instead of every movement being dictated by the story, sometimes people will just sit for a moment, or they will sigh, or look in a running stream, or do something extra, not to advance the story but only to give the sense of time and place and who they are.
"We have a word for that in Japanese," he said. "It’s called ma. Emptiness. It’s there intentionally.”
Is that like the “pillow words” that separate phrases in Japanese poetry?
"I don’t think it’s like the pillow word." He clapped his hands three or four times. "The time in between my clapping is ma. If you just have non-stop action with no breathing space at all, it’s just busyness. But if you take a moment, then the tension building in the film can grow into a wider dimension. If you just have constant tension at 80 degrees all the time you just get numb." — Rogert Ebert, on Hayao Miyazaki (via elucipher)
I gots a table. ヾ(@^▽^@)ノ
Probably the best con experience I’ve ever had. Got to meet some cool artists and con goers. Bought some prints and goodies. Had fun at my AA table. And… AND! Got to meet DC Douglas who was super effing awesome! He really knows how to make a fangirl go crazy~ ♡＾▽＾♡
I just want to thank everyone who has followed, liked and/or reblogged my stuff. Sorry I don’t post very much or frequently. I really want to do more art and jewelry, but it’s sometimes really hard for me to be up and motivated
because I have brain problems. I realize I’m also not very talkative on here. It’s weird, I’m not really shy in real life, but on the internet I’m pretty shy. Weird…
I’ll be at Sac-Con’s Artist Alley this Sunday. I might not have very much to offer, but please come by and say hi. I like meeting new people. <3
I’ll be there! (★^O^★)b
