Calref's Studio Ghibli Season
« on: 31 December 2015, 07:22:35 PM »
Hi. I'm Nikki. For those that don't know me, I like two things. First, I like despair. Secondly, I love Studio Ghibli films. Also, I enjoy drinking, flirting, making a tit of myself, and being shit at video games, Anyway. Most anime I can leave (except for my beloved Cardcaptor Sakura), but Ghibli is unaccountably perfect, and irredeemably steeped in nostalgia and sadness.

As such, I think we should watch them, as a community. If you want. And you should want, because they're perfect.

Ideally, we'll do them all. Starting with a couple of pre-Ghibli works (by Miyazaki, one half of the Ghibli master-race of directors), and ending, after When Marnie Was There with the documentary The Kingdom of Madness and Dreams.

I will probably figure out how to stream via Twitch for those that want to watch, or we can find an online source to stream from. I'm not too fussed about watching in English vs. Japanese either, but note that two films are (currently) Japanese only. So you should be prepared to read a little. My dream is to do them all in a weekend, but I know that people have lives and loves, and need to 'sleep', so I'll aim for one a week. We'll figure out the best time for all when we get to that stage.

Right now, I'm just interested in who would be up for such an undertaking. This is like 20 movies worth. And they are all perfect and magnificent but still...

Who's in?

Okidoki, but my availability is going to be limited since I am working forever hours a week now. But I should be free next Thursday and Friday until someone tells me I'm not.

Okay, I guess it is just us. Though more people are welcome to join of course!

Our first movie will be The Castle Of Cagliostro. While not technically a Ghibli film, it has lots of great Miyazaki moments, it's super fun, and it's not one that many people have seen.

Here is a WhenIsGood for it - the movie is movie-length (so a couple hours long). Hopefully that means we can get it in somewhere this week: http://whenisgood.net/qffjdk3

I've filled it out accurately for this week, and then what I usually have off for next week, but I might need to edit it on Thursday when the schedule comes out.

Okay, there's not a single hour in the next two weeks where everybody's schedule lines up. :(

Hey. so with Neb's schedule swapping up a little, I think we can do this on Friday at 10pm GMT (so I think that worked out at 2pm for Dinti/Neb/Sy and ??? for Thynar (since he filled out the form in GMT). Does that still work for people?

Also... Any ideas on the best way to stream this? Is Twitch the way to go - I don't want it to be stopped halfway through like Starship Troopers. :p

Well, if people still wanted to see The Castle of Cagliostro, I'll be streaming it tonight at 22:00 UTC. I'll be posting the link in chat closer to the time.

Since nobody offered any alternatives, we'll be using Twitch - so apologies in advance if we get cut off.

:(

Again, there's literally one one-hour slot from now until Feb 12th with only four of us. So I mean, I dunno. If scheduling is going to be such a bitch, it seems like this can't really be a thing.

Shall I make it a set time each week, so that people can drop in/out when they want? Shall I just watch them by myself? Something else?

i dunno if i make a difference, but feel free to exclude me from the calculations. I tend to be fairly conservative on when I know i will be available.

It seemed to line up pretty good last time. I'll post an edit when the new schedule comes out Thursday for next week and maybe that'll be better.

I have better internet now! Maybe we can do this!

IF we did, would you rather we revisit the movie we watched, or press on to Nausicaa?

AND WHEN IS GOOD?

I'll be watching a Studio Ghibli film this weekend, and streaming it to twitch. I'm open to suggestions, or else I'll watch one I haven't seen for a long time.

You are welcome to watch with me.

When is good for you? http://whenisgood.net/b2sfbd2

Since the last time I did this I only had one response (thaaaanks), would a different day/time work better?

I am open to suggestions. Please give some.

I work on the weekends, as does Luca (generally). I'm not sure either of us could join, though I know I'd love to, given the chance. I've got the entire day, each Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday available. Luca's days off are (shrug.jpg).

Sorry friend  <3
