Katauta #45

I had a great conversation with my friend Jeannette the other day with how I was able to feel more confident in my interests and how blogging has allowed me to be more assertive with people in regards to my opinions.

The imagery I chose for this poem involves some movies and memorabilia in my small collection even though it’s not all of it. Yes, I also plug my indie film/documentary/world cinema/anime/short film review blog Iridium Eye on there, but it was relevant.

Here’s a list of the things shown in this video:

Haibane Renmei: Hanenone soundtrack
This Is Not a Film DVD
The Place Promised In Our Early Days DVD
Strings DVD
Before Your Eyes DVD
Read Or Die DVD autographed by Crispin Freeman
Kimba the White Lion promotional NBC black & white cel featuring Kimba and Claw
Battle Royale Shirt

Interestingly enough, I’ve reviewed all of those thing on Iridium Eye. Just sayin’. Haha!

Hope you enjoyed that poem.

    • Thank you so much, Raistlin. I appreciate you checking out the video. Yeah, that Battle Royale shirt was sweet and I agree with it being a great movie. I do confess to making jokes around some people by saying “You know, Battle Royale is kind of like The Hunger Games except it’s Japanese, way more brutal, bloodier, and by the way…it came first.” I was surprised by how well some people have taken that comment. Haha!

      • Yup. More like that and steroids. Hahaha! One of my buddies who’s a hardcore fan of Battle Royale told me about that recent Battlegrounds game and he laughed because he called it “The Ultimate Battle Royale rip-off experience.” It’s funny how you have THG, The Condemned, The Belko Experiment and all these other things that came after it. Yes, I know you have The Running Man that predates it, but I still think the situation is funny.

    • I see. I’m happy you feel confident in your hobbies and reviews. The thing is I used to be bullied for liking anime when I was younger and I could barely find anyone who knew about non mainstream movies. Those interests have been revived these past couple of years and it’s been stronger since I reviewed stuff on Iridium Eye. Sure, I get some flack for liking Battle Royale and Kimba the White Lion sometimes, but I do my best to not let it bother me.
