09:53 pm - We... thought... you... was... a TOAD...
Another fun movie-day with kviri and frozencapybara. They showed me the first half (13 episodes) of Cowboy Bebop, which I enjoyed, though it took me a few episodes to get the feel of the show. And in return, continuing our Coen-Brothers theme, I showed them O Brother, Where Art Thou?, which has been on our list for some little while.

(Incidentally, I still think the Space Corgi is the best thing on Cowboy Bebop. I'm not sure why. It also threw me to realise that one of the characters shares his name with the drummer of The Stranglers.)

Have you heard the soundtrack CDs? Or the movie sound track? "What Planet Is This?" from the Movie OST may be more of an earworm than "Tank!" (the TV theme) is.

Bebop is one of the best series ever, and the movie kicks butt too.

Ein (the corgi) is funniest in Mushroom Samba.

The Stranglers reference may be intentional. And yep, the doggie is super-cute.

Anime makes other cultural references. For one of the best-known examples, just do a websearch for "Priss and the Replicants". Probably the most amusing one I know of is a Gunnm/Battle Angel Alita crossover. In the original comics, our hero's name is Gally. When they got translated to English, while the story was still running in Japan, the translator changed her name to Alita. Later in the story, Gally has a delusional dream, and in it her name is Alita...
