Back in January and February, I blogged a lot about the Academy Awards films, actors and people~ I had a list of the films I was to watch and had it all highlighted in colors of films:

  • I have seen
  • I wanted to see
  • Repeated film in another category (lol)

I didn’t necessarily manage to watch all the films before awards, but I did watch a majority… minus most the films in the Documentary category, and shorts (live action, animation and documentary). But today it all changed, because I saw all the Animated Short Films, and I will share them with you (especially Julyssa, who is most likely to want to watch them also). The only clip that is not complete is Piotrus i Wilk (Peter & the Wolf), which ended up winning the category.

The date, September 1999… It was a Wednesday on The WB channel. I was getting ready to watch a new episode of Charmed, because I was (and still am) a fan of the supernatural. So as I used to do, turned on the TV at 7-ish in the evening, while doing some homework… re-runs of Friends and Caroline in the City would be on, and I would watch more than doing my actual homework, ha! – But that day… 29th of September (according to Wikipedia), Popular began. It was 8 pm. I’m guessing, and the show began as two ‘teens’ began talking in a diner. Summer vacations were over, and both were discussing the issues of teenage beauty. Is Sam foxier than Brooke McQueen??

Hey, guys~ Am watching Ep11 at this moment. I think this might be my last post on Dancing with the Stars, for obvious reasons, non? Well, I do hope you voted for Marlee because 7 votes is a lot. Last Monday’s episode had a few cute and funny moments with Marissa Jaret Winokur, Cristian de la Fuente, and Kristi Yamaguchi.

Marissa always makes me smile, lol… with comments like she’s “more like a moth,” in response to being like a butterfly for the Viennese Waltz, and her flipping out with her scores. And her saying that she’s only seen 9s in rehearsals, pretending… ha!

And I enjoy the Latin American and Asians representing… Kristi rocked it with her Jive, and her flipping out was funny too.

Won’t upload videos this time, but will post captures of favorites:

Hitoride Dekirumon! is another NHK show for children I happen to see on my archived videos. It ran through 1991 to 2006 (quite the long run compared to Occidental children programming). Not entirely sure what the name means, Google Translate shows it as One Possible!, but I’m more inclined to say that Continue Reading…

Eigo de Asobo (in its original 1990 title display 英語であそぼ, or in hiragana えいごであそぼ), meaning… I think, Play in English or Let’s Play in English. Well, I actually didn’t know what the heck ASOBO meant, lol… but I looked it up. (answer here, if you’re interested in use and phrases), is another NHK show I remember catching a glimpse of. I actually went through my video archive on VCR tapes, and I had recorded some of the show during its 1998-2001 period.

According to Japanese Wikipedia, the show began in 1990 and went through several changes (as apparently many Japanese kids shows do), Continue Reading…
