12.8 From Sam: I need two HMC clips. 29:08-31:30, i think, of the breakfast scene. Also, 1:51:41-1:53:47, the ending-ish of the film. Thanks!

I need a Howl's clip from when Sophie is speaking to the King's sorceress lady at the castle and she changes forms during her rant. It's from around 1:02:59 to 1:03:38. Her changing from old to young to old again. Thanks!

I need an Audition clip showing the red restaurant date where Aoyama's dead wife shows up. From 1:23:30 to 1:25:06 I think.

Tony could also benefit from this same clip :)


Announcements, etc



The ugly Wiki Maintenance and Major Edit grades for 11.20-12.3 are up.



Wiki Maintenance and Major Edit grades are up. It was, um, a slow week.



Here and here are two readings for Tuesday. We will also talk about the fate of the wiki



By the way, major edit and wiki maintenance grades for last week (11.6-11.12) are up.



We didn't talk about major edits that will be due for the 19th. Will somebody start a list?


Also, I forgot to mention that my intro to lit class is screening The Big Sleep today at 5:30 in Gore B24. It's one of the classic films of the noir period, and Blade Runner alludes to it. So feel free to come watch if you'd like.



Here's some reading on Miike.


And here's the publication information on the Blade Runner article:

Desser, David. "Blade Runner: Science Fiction and Transcendence." Literature/

Film Quarterly 13.3 (1985): 172-9.



I'll be holding my office hours in the Foster Faculty Lounge (main floor Foster Hall) on the morning of 11.10. We'lll be talking about Blade Runner Tuesday, so make sure you see it before then.
