My local movie theater is having a Studio Ghibli showcase in January. Move over, December. January is officially the most wonderful time of the year.
I’m seriously entertaining the notion that Disney, Pixar, Studio Ghibli and other producers of animated films have some super secret subliminal hypnosis sequence in every one of their films because I don’t know about you guys but every time I finish watching any of their films I feel like life is amazing and full of limitless possibilities and all I want to do is burst into song because that’s how happy these animated films make me.
That is, of course, until I step out of the house.
