"For me, there is no feeling of admiration or no excitement whatsoever. "It's disgusting. On trains, the number of those people doing that strange masturbation-like gesture is multiplying."
After reading what Miazaki has to say, I think he is disgusted with people doing sexual lime movements to their computers. That's the main reason he won't own a computer, they're too sexual for him :P.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
i thought thats what computers were ment for. lol
LOL fat, they are not meant for that but to pleasure you and that's one of the use for it... :P
That movie looks pretty gay.
It's a 22 year old children's Anime, what did you expect?
***** Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted. *****
OK, I kind of understood HH posting Prince's ridiculous statements about the Internet. I mean, that even made newspapers. So, fine. But then, Kenny G's rebuttal. I like his Christmas album, but really? Kenny G? And now Miyazaki calling modern devices "sex toys." Who's next? Joan Rivers complaining about the reflective back of the iPhone? Or maybe Jack Thompson talking about how COD Zombies on the iPad makes players into psychopaths because the "realistic" accelerometer is a "murder simulator." That's all we need, some out-of-touch farts trying to be controversial.
Awesomeness.... Awesomeness is what I expect from a man that can be identified merely by his last name.
Let's maintain perspective, people. Miyazaki Hayao is a fine artist in his field; Nausicaä and Spirited Away are must-sees. (I only wish the dubbing studios weren't so enamored of star power and would go with lesser-known but more versatile voice actors, such as... such as... well, modesty forbids me to say. Résumé to follow.)
But geez, the guy's 70. Even Buckminster Fuller started getting a little crotchety in his seventies. Me, I'm waiting on what Takahashi Rumiko has to say on the matter.
@acarzt (below): You know it. The drawing above, of the cast from Urusei Yatsura (translation: "Bad neighbors" or "People from Devil-Star"... Takahashi loves multilingual puns) has about ten years' worth of concentrated weirdness; but for all its frenetic plot, there are weirder characters. I will only mention Toriyama Akira's Dr. Slump, the adventures of a mad inventor; you may know Toriyama better as the Dragon Ball Z guy. Dr. Slump featured aliens with their butts on their heads, a super-strong and somewhat clueless little girl robot, and a sentient pile of poo. And this was ages before South Park's Mr. Hanky.

There are some rather Odd characters in Anime... I think Clem's picture proves that lol
miyazaki may be concerned that the ipad is contributing to the destruction of earth, as this alien explains- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rwY978MTvaE
That video is just..... weird... and I stopped watching it just a few seconds in :-P
"That movie looks pretty gay"
Congratulations, you just walked off with the dumbest comment of a lifetime award. What you lazily (and unsurprisingly in the vernacular of the typical, uneducated, American redneck child) classed as looking "gay", is in fact one of the most beloved children's movies ever created. Hayao Miyazaki is the Academy Award winning godfather of Japanese animation...a man so revered in his field I cannot possibly put it into words. He is the Japanese Walt Disney....and more. But let's forget all that, he doesn't like the fad of the moment...the iPad....let's crucify him and call his movies "gay".
Well, sonny, the man has immortalised himself. People will know and love him LONG after his death...a time when this latest technology fad is a forgotten memory....and when you're long dead and buried, with no legacy left to remember you by. Miyazaki = WIN, You = FAIL!!!
and people will remember you for?
lol... I wasn't aware that having an opinion makes me a "Typical, Uneducated, American redneck child" lol
It's not my fault the movie looks gay. Don't get your panties in a bunch lol
And for the record, I didn't call his movie gay because I have a thing for the iPad, I think the iPad is pretty gay too lol As a matter of fact, I don't like anything apple. lol
And i'm plenty educated pal
Ahahaha, Using "win" and "fail" to describe someone isn't much better...lol

I like Miyazaki, I don't like the iPad. It should be called the uPaid as in through the nose. I don't expect a 70 year old man to be in touch with technology but hey, if someone was watching my movie on an iPad I'd feel pretty damned honored.
Yes, I can see where he's coming from. Things have gone waaaay downhill when it comes to sex and technology but it sounds like he came of his meds for that newsletter.
***EDIT: Phail would have totally tied that entire statement together and given it some credability. Maybe some l33t sp33k too.

Slave to technology.
Using "win" and "fail" don't happen to offend a sizeable chunk of the world's population by associating their sexuality with a derogatory connotation. Next time you want to call something "gay"....try running it through your head first as "that movie looks n*gger"...."that movie looks wetback"....then you just might get an idea of how a gay bloke would feel and realise how offensive (and childish) you're being.
Doesn't gay mean Happy?
Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
