…Woah. Am I turning into a competent artist? What do you think of Light House 2.1?

Well, I’ve gone and done it. I bought a pirated collection of Hayao Miyazaki movies on DVD. It’s an 11-disc set, containing most of the animated films Miyazaki has made (except for Panda! Go Panda!, The Castle of Cagliostro, and the recent Spirited Away, among others). I’d buy licensed versions, but I can’t get a domestic release of Laputa or Porco Rosso, so I’m forced to buy pirated copies. I’ll buy legitimate copies if they ever become available.

And this restriction annoys me. If I ever release anything on DVD, I think I’m going to release it on regionless discs, if at all possible. Why limit the number of fans who can buy your work?
