And since then I have not regained consciousness, and I never will.

The tricky thing if you’re an aspiring filmmaker is, I think, if you’re young and particular the danger is always being clever. That cleverness is a facility some of us have and we like to show off and show off how smart we are, it’s a very dangerous kind of seduction because, it’s sort of like when you have an answering machine and you leave a clever message and after a little while you get a little tired of it, you know, it doesn’t have much staying power. The issue is, what is it you’re in love with? What is it that compels you? What is it when you’re alone and you’re not with all your cool and hip friends, what is it that really stirs you? That’s the stuff. You know that’s going to be compelling. What is it that embarrasses you, that you fear to expose about yourself, your feelings about others or about the world in which you live? It’s those intimate feelings that one has that I think bear the best fruit for you.

(really good advice for young creatives I feel, or for me anyway, I shouldn’t feel ashamed about not intellectualising my work and instead focusing on feelings and human experience)

I’m sorry, I’m awful, I’ve just felt so terribly destructive all week. It’s awful. I’m horrible.

God damn it, there are nice things in the world—and I mean nice things. We’re all such morons to get so sidetracked. Always, always, always referring every goddam thing that happens right back to our lousy little egos.

[Ghibli’s] name was Miyazaki’s choice; ghibli is a word that Italian pilots once used to describe a wind blowing from the Sahara. To Miyazaki, the name conveyed a message, almost a threat — something like “Let’s blow a sensational wind through the Japanese animation world,” Suzuki recalled in a speech years later.

Good Morning MelbourneMust admit it wasn’t an easy choice because few a of those cities are less explored in an artistic context but we’ve got to show some love to our guys and girls in Melbourne! Grown a bit of a following over there and a small team of writers over the years so it’s only write for us to showcase the work from that part of the world. For those who submitted their choices, it won’t be in vein, I’ll be taking a look back at that list next month but for now lets celebrate the city by the bay.7sobm : facebook | tumblr
