Cultural adventures, neh?

Anime, it is Strange.
And sometimes extremely brilliant. Creepy-impressive brilliant. Best Beloved and I are rewatching Serial Experiment Lain, which we first watched, in ragged and erratic fashion, on G4 TV. Back when there was a G4 TV. It's only twelve episodes long, which is a blessing, because a) it's so intense in style, my head might implode if it lasted longer; and b) it's so close to impentetrable in the way it explores its themes - and it hides those themes in and amidst the clutter of its silences and its light and dark patterns - that my head might rebuild itself, then implode again. As it is, I can only watch two episodes at a time - when I watch Bleach, I can suck back four or five episodes a night. (Mmmmm, Bleach. I love Bleach. But I digress ....)
