I haven't been to a casino in about 3 years. Been practicing my black jack on computer programs, then went yesterday with the idea if I win $400+ I'd just cash in and buy an iPad 2. I've now got a free iPad. smile

At CNBC.com, there was an article today on Pfizer. The first 2 comments were there when I first looked. Now, there are 3. Sorry, I couldn't resist. (Pfizer makes Viagra for those that don't know.)

I watched "Whisper of the Heart" for the first time last night from Hayao Miyazaki's collection and I thought it was fantastic. Slow paced for your average animated movie, but the story, video, music and sound effects were awesome. An animated drama / fantasy of young love between 2 Japanese middle schoolers. The boy who knows what he wants to do in life and is good at it, and the girl, who's not sure of herself and wants to be like him, but fails, until she learns that she's just a diamond in the rough that needs polishing.

While searching, I did find one more movie that belongs to this list. Making a total of 18. In 2011 Hayao Miyazaki was one of the writers and his son the director of "From Up On Poppy Hill" in 2011. Audio is Japanese, with English sub-titles.

One thing I find a little aggravating after watching Princess Mononoke, then going back and comparing the sound between portions of the Japanese version and English version, is the Japanese version sounded much better, because it was louder. For some reason, they tamed the sound down for the English version. You can't turn it up much, because then the voice overs would be too loud.

[ ] From Up On Poppy Hill - 2011
[x] The Secret World of Arrietty - 2010
[x] Ponyo - 2008
[ ] My Neighbors the Yamadas - 2005
[ ] Porco Rosso - 2005
[x] The Cat Retuns - 2005
[x] Howle's Moving Castle - 2004
[x] Spirited Away - 2001
[x] Princess Mononoke - 1997
[x] Whisper of the Heart - 1995
[ ] Pom Poko - 1994
[x] Kiki's Delivery Service - 1989
[x] My Neighbor Totoro - 1988
[ ] Grave of the Fireflies - 1988
[x] Castle in the Sky - 1986
[ ] Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind - 1984
[ ] Space Adventure Cobra - 1982
[ ] Lupin the Third: The Castle of Cagliostro - 1979

Just ordered Grave of the Fireflies and Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind. I was warned about "Grave" being a tear jerker. Perhaps, I should watch it alone.
