Munch and Munch, Kiss and Hug!

I watched Ponyo last night because I need Underwater Feelings while I work on my underwater poem; I've been making do with Mr. Limpet and The Little Mermaid which is way pervier than I remember it being. Anyway, I loved Ponyo so much, it was marvelous and lyrical and emotionally intelligent, which made it all the more unnerving when the movie ended and the theme song began to play.


AMERICA I AM NOT OKAY WITH THIS

Ponyo! According to the movie's wikipedia entry, it's onomatopaeia based on Miyazaki's idea of what a "soft, squishy softness" sounds like when touched. Well obviously!

you didn't have a problem with them being "promised to each other in love" as children?

Yeah, no, as long as it's not nasty 16-year-old Ariel swimming sexily around her own dad, I'm okay.
