Pretty good classes this last “in-house” week:
- Editing class.
- Archival filmmaking.
- Exceeding the corporeal.
I keep focusing on Heisig’s kanji learning method and I’m now halfway!
Finally installed Anki and experimented a bit with sentence mining but in the end added the premade deck Core 6000. (I still don’t understand “best practice” with Anki learning, and none of the videos on sentence mining answered that.)
Flashcards Deluxe this week:
We watched another Miyazaki movie, Howl’s Moving Castle, but it felt like all effect and no heart. As if something he crafted with his left hand using the same old Miyazaki routine of ingenious creations, likeable characters, funny sidekicks, and a love story. And again there was no clear resolution to the spell!
I also rewatched Haneke’s debut Der siebente Kontinent with S, and it was even more gruesome now than when I was twenty. Actually, I think I thought it was “fun” when I watched it back then. The rest of the trilogy coming up.
Took another little bike ride today and it feels so good.
