DON’T Call Anime A Cartoon

I don’t know, maybe anime, which is truly an ‘animation’, may be a subset of cartoons or something. BUT! It just hits a terribly sore spot when you call it a cartoon because cartoons come with the general idea and connotation of being childish and… lame.

We were talking about The Girl Who Leapt Through Time which our whole family watched, and when referring to it, my mum called it ‘that cartoon‘. GOSH I was so irked. It might not have had awesome visuals, but the plot was so good it nearly made me cry and the soundtrack was awesome too! Speaking of other such great movies, those by Hayao Miyazaki are pretty good! I watched Howl’s Moving Castle and it was so strange but cool :) Yes and the theme song was pretty good. I’ll post it here.

You know, Sungha Jung (THAT FAMOUS GUITARIST THAT’S SO GOOD) actually played a cover of that song too but I thought that it sounded better on the piano :P

Dreams Are For Dreamers

You can feel your powerlessness

Inevitably slowing your pace

Who are you deceiving?

You can’t win this race

You chase like there’s no tomorrow

Like there’s nothing holding you back

You give it all you have

Only to be ridden with regret

You have inspiration, courage, energy

A will that cannot be broken

Only to lose, to collapse,

With the feet that couldn’t be shaken

Dreams are for dreamers

The word itself tells that

Before hard reality sets in,

Give up the dream you never had.

We were all born without wings. We can never dream of soaring, of escaping from this solid Earth. Dreams are simply illusions of reality. They might seem within reach, but you will never be able to grasp them.

I think that this was one of my better poems because it actually rhymes.
