Professor Masao Miyazaki of Japan's Iwate University, says the silver vine plant is unrelated to Cabinet but two pranks and very similar structure of the compound. His team isolated that compound from Silver Vine, which closely resembles the active chemical in catnip and found that when sniffed through the nose, the chemical taps into a cat's opioid reward system.

"I just, I'm, I'm, I'm sad about leaving my friends and family or friends in school, you know? So like she's into kids stuff and and I don't think she gets the whole consumerist thing she has. She hasn't been soiled by. Tainted by fucking reality and stuff. So when she gets over there and but then at the same time, I say that she's worked. She's like, I want to work hard Amiga worker to get a job and work in the bath house for you. You know, let me prove myself, you know. So yeah, she's not consumers, but she's also like weirdly hard worker. It's kind of cool like self-preservation philosophy and the for millennia have talked about the wisdom of children, right? Like the bible talks about out of the mouth of babes and it's just something that has always kind of existed that there's a sense in which as you get older, as you start to understand the world, you divide it up more. You imbue more meaning into things that maybe shouldn't be given such meaning. And so you sort of lose your attachment in your connection to the simplicity of life. You sort of become less natural or you become you become more concerned or. What's the word like in Buddhism, you become you become more attached to the material world and you lose your connection to the beyond into the transcendent. And so there's something about like having a child like vision or like a like, RIA, tuning yourselves to the simplicity of things that Miyazaki seems to really buy into because in most of his films, children are the wise ones. They're the ones who are the heroes. They're the ones who have the imagination. They're the ones who have the capacity. They're the ones who can see through the Greek Reed or the corruption or whatever. And they're always kind of like reminding us, hey, let's not be so consumed with these things that we think are the really real, but they're not the really real. I'm in. You know, there's one character that I guess maybe I just can't crack this character, but I wanna talk just a little bit about the giant baby. What Fuck. the fuck is. Also a baby in labyrinth. Keep going right. And then there's also foul-caller in the labyrinth. We've got these flying, you know, lion dragons all over the place, but this babe, that's that's never ending story right. Oh, that's that's kind of the same thing guy girl. That's a fantastic place. That's that's a cinematic fail on my part. So this baby win. When I first saw the baby, I was like, okay, that's really weird. When it started talking. I was like, this may be the creepiest baby. I've ever seen in my life. It's so it's so like sort of eloquent, it's very clear and and air. You died almost. Dot area. So so so so wh- what's your question about? What is the significance of this baby? Because I, in some ways it seems like the baby is going on its own sort of journey of self discovery. I think one motif for the baby is just, you know, like what, like you said, chil- children have this inherent kind of wisdom that we don't know where you know until he gets taken away from them, but and 'til you become a selfish adult. But before you became become a wise child, you are a very selfish baby. So I think that you know, because you just don't know anything. So the giant size of it and just how it just anywhere it goes. It's just may him. Yeah, so, and that's a baby. You know, that's a motif for a baby wherever it goes. If I can drools and shits does everywhere. He goes eighties were oversized like that they would destroy the world and they get everything they want. So that's what. It's all about, I think, yeah, I guess a baby in a way. Maybe I'm over thinking it, but a baby is really like just a consumption machine. Exactly. Really is then Tila get smart. Yeah. So by the end by the end of the film, I guess the baby is sort of done the same thing to heroes done in that. It's now at the end of the film, it cares about you hero. It's saying like, you know, if you heard San, I'm gonna cry or maybe maybe the threat is even worse, but you know, it doesn't really have a lot of bullets in its gun..

"And this is just one of my struggles in life because I'm really interested in postmodern criticisms. And then at the same time, I don't want to go straight hippie and be like, we just need to get back to earth man and just like dig our hands in the soil, and that's the real of the real cause. Even all of that stuff is still mediated by consciousness and language and culture. And so there's still like a fantasy. That's a tad. To the supposed- real connection with nature, right? But nevertheless, I've been really interested in this idea of of hyper reality of Disneyland high definition, television and things like that that are even more real than what I'm able to experience in my let's say normal natural faculties, and it's not that I'm trying to make a value judgment. That one is good in one is bad, but I think it's really interesting to explore the consequences of that tension or of that mishmash of technology with what we would call nature. And I mean, Miyazaki clearly seems to favor the natural, I would say, do you think so? Yeah. Yeah, definitely. But I mean, let's not forget like Disneyland is hyper real because it's aimed at children little babies that like like to see, big, hyper real cartoonish things. It's like a, but yeah, in terms of other stuff like the effect on the dolts of like virtual reality or some other kind of thing we're we're, we're not in. In nature at all? You know, I definitely think me Ezaki. You would not like that you're are you sports fans huge sports football on TV that you watch like football on her basketball on her? I hate it though. I hate the fucking it's high frame rate. She's a little cheered, right? Yeah. It's like bright there. I don't like it. The Lord of the rings thing in high high frame rate. And I like every frame I, I like barely look at it. You know it was like it was like hard look at it like made me sick, almost feel like poorly filmed. Even though as you feel like you're watching people in in hobbit costumes, you don't feel like you're swept up in it anyway. That's what I thought that that that's exactly might thing. Like when I watch a film on, I'm very good. Even though I have a critical mind of just like suspending disbelief when I have to, like if I'm watching vice crack dude, I got my analyst hat on, but if not, I'm dude, I will get lost in even the most mundane like rom com. And I'll be bawling my eyes out. It doesn't fucking matter. You know, but high-definition television snaps me out of my suspension of reality because I'm doing exactly what you just said Ryan. I'm like, oh, that's a dude wearing prosthetics on his face. Right. For school. I, I like the immersion that you get and it's because what is it like the we don't see in four k. or something like four k. is too high for for our our brain to process or something along though it's I, it's giving you every detail where but the weird thing is, is that film like we like hell non detail to dues, you, your brain does. Rarely. That's basically what it comes down to kind of feel the same way about music these days, like the music now clean. But if you listen to like Led Zeppelin, it's like it's, it's got like that veneer..

"Slash wise crack pod. Now, let's get back into spirited away. So when I was thinking about this movie, you know both back when I thought about it earlier in and also when I rewind it, I sort of thought about it on that surface level. And then I kind of reconnect. Actualized the whole thing in the political and economic lens that I think Austin mentioned earlier. So we should talk a little bit about that because just in the very beginning of the movie when she heroes father mentions that amusement, parks being abandoned is sort of a a symptom of the Japanese economic collapse it. The first time I saw the movie definitely like didn't register with me. But when I thought about it and did some research, it really seemed to open up a whole new layer of the film really, I guess, after the war and I do talk about this in the EarthLink. So I apologize if I'm repeating myself a little bit. But after the war you had Japan shifting away from traditional values and getting more interested in capitalism in pursuing those capitalistic ideals. So the amusement parks are really unim- bodyman of this. I mean, you build them when you're in boom times there. Totally something that thrives on discretionary income. You only build them. Wind times are good, and there's almost like a little bit of cube risk attached to building one. And in this case, this amusement park is built in the style of traditional Japan. It's built with sort of a faux historical vibe to it. In fact, when the the father, I notes the age of the building, he looks at it and he says, oh, it's not old. It's fake. So he sort of pointing us to that every town or what are they call it at Disneyland where it was like every ethnicity little part of right in the or we're going to it was like the community of the future, all Disney called it or something like that. Yeah. I mean, Disneyland, does this right? And and you guys probably know a little bit more about this. I'm just starting to read about what Umberto eco says about Disneyland and hyper reality and that stuff. Have you guys not. I don't know. Have you guys seen that? Awesome. Have you ever heard of the now? I know I haven't. What does he say. Well, I'll butcher it, but he's basically talking about the phenomenon of building these sort of fake towns that are intended to be more real than reality Schorr and I'm like a cartoonist reality sort of. Yeah, and this isn't just pure fantasy either. This is based on reality. There are these theme parks, all around Japan that are abandoned and they're all these. They're kind of like ghosts amusement parks, they call them hike, yo, or hockey. Oh, I don't know how you'd say it's h. a. I k. y. o. but they're all over Japan and you know, they have like shrubbery and trees and things that have taken over. It's almost like nature is reclaiming culture in a way. It's really quite creepy, but super interesting that these that these things are are still out there in their existence. So I mean, Miyazaki is probably drawing some inspiration from those. Right. And and if you go online, I mean, there's a lot of different photographs from these places. They are really, they're spooky. They're just they're sort of disturbing in a way, but they're also like in a strange way, sort of calming. There's one called the Nahra dreamland that just it's like it just it's so bizarre to see like the earth reclaiming this stuff. And do you think. Miyazaki's mainly commenting on just the inherent, excessive consumerism involved in that you don't think he hates Disneyland. I don't think so. Although Disneyland is the one amusement park that did manage to survive. I think it's an Tokyo daddy. Yeah, that one lived. No, I don't. I don't think so. I think that what he's commenting on is sort of forgetting your past. Yeah, and that theme sort of echoes throughout the film where we hear all this importance on remembering who you are, remembering your name. If she hero forgets her name, she becomes she loses her identity. And I think that that is a metaphor for for what he saw happening in Japan. Definitely. I mean, there is something about hyper reality. Let's say like like the more real than real that is kind of the kind of detaches us from the physical world..

"And then after that, it kind of just devoured all the films, and then I actually helped produce the wise crack addition on the philosophy of me as Ocoee video. And then I did dive into the film, and I just think that this film is so fascinating it like you guys have said, there's some interesting things about greed and consumption about like the the wisdom of children. Which is something that cuts through all of me as Ocoee films. And then I think there's something really beautiful about the spiritual themes, interconnecting nature with culture and not becoming so caught up in maybe technology or the things that are human, but trying to have an appreciation for deeper realities that are maybe we might say behind the veil, right? And so I think there's something so fascinating about how this film is. So maybe even more than the other films because it's kind of bat shit crazy because there's that bath house and all those weird creatures and animals and spirits, and things like that. It's more frenetic in eccentric than the majority of his films which are a little bit sometimes strip back and simple and and I like them all. But there's something crazy about this film that I think is really quite appealing. I think they're all pretty crazy, personal Princess Monan. Okay, dude. I mean, that's that one's cranial when Razi. But I mean like Kiki's delivery service a neighbour Totoro opponent. Oh there. There's a wild nece to them. But for some reason when I watched this, I was just like, whoa, dude, you're this batch shit, right? Pound yo is definitely tamer than this movie and same with Khodro, but I definitely think that. The just the tension to detail. That's the big thing. Hopefully talk about to just about his filmmaking like he just these little things in life. Just help. White paper will fold and weird ways. Never see it really illustrated and movies like I would say that just how he focuses on those things in each of his movies, though tamer ones and the really batch insane one's really makes a kind of a surreal. But like human quality that transcends cinema baby does. Yeah. Hand. Well, you know, like I said, I, I wrote the earthling cinema on this, but my I think I saw this movie right when it came out in the theaters because I was already anticipating Miyazaki's films by then. I think the first one I saw was NASA. They did. They found like an old print of it and they screened it on the big screen at at Berkeley. Whereas at school at the time and I saw it, it was my first exposure, I think to any anime and it was just intense. It blew me away. That movie is like. Really emotional and beautiful. Like snow scene, no sokaia it's a good one. And then there's a set of graphic novels that are amazing as well. So I was waiting for it and I was not disappointed from the beginning of the film, just it. It really gets straight into this magical world, and I love love movies that take you away. Like I, I love movies that are set in like spirit realm. You like wizard of Oz Nelson wonderland, like as things. James Franco's wizard of Oz, and Johnny. Oh, man. But even those versions I can, you know, can always get behind a movie that takes me away. So, and this movie absolutely did. Did you get spirited away when you watch. Share to say, okay, I knew something was coming. I'm worried that no one is pushing that applause button when Ryan talks, but we'll have to get into that later. So the problem. So really excited to get into these themes. And I think the first thing we should do, what we usually do on the show. My understanding is we do a recap, so I'm going to get into that now. Good job. You've watched an episode. I have. I have. I am a fan. Oh, thank you. So in the beginning of the movie, we meet a young girl named Shahikot and her parents at this point in the film to heroes kind of a brat. And right now, she's sulking because the families moving to a new town and quote, it's gonna stink. So while driving to the new home, the family gets lost and they wind up in front of a strange deserted building with this creepy statue in front of it against two heroes objections they explore, and the father realizes.

Kevin, so I don't get to do a lot on the content side anymore. But when I heard that we needed somebody to step in for the show me the meaning on this particular film, I raised my hand because I love this movie. You wrote the earthling cinema analysis for this movie. I did, yes. Check that out of episode l. Yup, I was definitely ready to refresh and watch the movie again. So we are talking about spirited away today, the Miyazaki film. Hell, yeah. Why don't we start by talking about, you know, are just some general thoughts about the movie. Would you think the first time you saw it on rewatch? What's your experience? Well, hi, my name's Ryan on the editor of at and Ryan is wearing. What film hat thing? Oh, yeah. If you if you're if you're only listening. I'm I'm, I'm, I'm all decked out in my Miyazaki motif gear. So I have my. I have my pig barbecue apron on symbolizing the parents who. Get turned into gross pigs in the movie, and then my pon yo inspired. Squid hat the call it. So anyway, I love me as Ocoee if you can't tell. But so this may the first time I saw saw it in high school or a pretty soon after it came out and it it. It definitely blew my mind. It was the the very first anime call, the Santa may right. This is I think so. Yeah. So so yeah, that that I never seen and I was like, yeah, okay. I can see why people are into this, but then I went and saw watched other anime and I, it's really this one's to me exceptionally magical in different than than than others. And yeah, Misaki is just an imagination. Genius. This movie. I don't know how you'd think of it like in especially the hand-drawn. It's so impressive. Obviously, I'm excited to talk about other themes about how people are just inherently greedy, and it's kind of a money can buy you anything. Unfortunately, and basically how it's kind of I love how that it's a kids movie. That's kind of anti parent in a way. Not saying I'm anti parent, but I'm just, I mean, you know, I was. When I was a kid everyone was, but that's what's so cool about this movie is that is that you know, I, it really is a from a kid's perspective for kids by kids, even though was made by like a sixty year old man. But yeah, I really love this movie and it's awesome. Would you think yet? So I am way late to the game on studio Ghibli anime. I had a good buddy when I was in undergrad. That was, I guess you could call him a Japan file. What's is it a taco or Tokyo? Is that the name of the culture, like the people that are really into Japanese. Oh, is that what it's called? We don't know shit. Okay. Yeah. And he would talk about it and he writes, comics and things like that professionally in his made some films and whatnot, and and so he would talk about it all the time. And I, I never got into it until I would. I saw the red turtle, which was actually the first studio Ghibli film that I saw, which is not a me as Ocoee film, but it's the first studio Ghibli film that I had actually seen, which is just two years ago now, and I thought it was magical. And so I went then and I was like, okay, I gotta go through me as Archies filmography and this is the one that everybody talks about, but it wasn't the first one that I saw. The first one I saw was totara my neighbour Totoro..

"And miyazaki miyazaki in studio ghibli i mean i'm interested in that because one of the things that i'm a huge studio ghibli miyazaki fan and one of the things that i think he's always done brilliant needs to meld the fairy tales if you like of central europe with japanese sensibility which is very much what you've done in this film isn't it many of the miyazaki movies you really couldn't put your finger on where they're set but it's filtered through his imagination and it's a japanese point of view and i guess without even really mean to that's one of the ways that we're inspired by miyazaki by his way of creating a world in an atmosphere and mixing what he wants from the kinds of stories that have inspired them and also i think we always talked about nature in relation to me that is his maybe his deepest interest it's the matic through all his films it's very different from for instance american animation the way the silences of nature are portrayed in miyazaki is completely alien to to what we have in the whole history of american movies and we wanted to have that if we could now you've got this amazing constable is bryan cranston plays chief the alpha dog if you'd like good greta gerwig jeff goldblum phil murray till the swinton you know so someone how did you cost it bryan cranston i thought of because i loved breaking bad so much and i just wanted to work with him i thought he would be just right for this role the really complicated thing was finding the boy who plays his character called atari who's the hero of the movie and we ended up finding an eight year old boyd play a twelve year old character which is something that never happens in live action he has a wonderful voice and a great spirit and through his vocal before missy influenced how we designed this puppet and really every aspect of this character in a way the voices in a movie like this even when they're not talking somehow the performances of the voice actors are a part of what the animators work with wes anderson and i love dogs may even have adult friendly screening negu check your local listings fishy tests and velasco greece about my guest today as.
