As of today, ZedneWeb is now located at <http://www.eyrie.org/~zednenem/>. Many thanks to Eagle, who is providing the space out of the goodness of his heart. If you haven't already updated your bookmark, better do it now before you forget. The old site won't be around to redirect you much longer. #

Well, a ZedneWeb update isn't the only long-awaited event that has finally arrived: Mononoke Hime is out in theatres! (Going under the name Princess Mononoke, which gives the unfortunate impression that the princess's name is Mononoke. The Mononoke Princess might have been better. Oh well.) The reaction has been highly positive, as evidenced by the reviews from Salon, Newsweek, Newsweek's special section on the 37th New York Film Festival, The New York Times (registration required), and Roger Ebert. Ebert has also posted a rare interview with Miyazaki, the director, and an article discussing the appeal of anime. For a more "insider" view, you can check out EX Magazine's recent editorial or their older review of the Japanese version. If this movie is even half as good as I hear, it will be well worth the effort it takes to see it--which is fortunate, since it isn't playing anywhere near me. #
