  1. When do you sleep, John?

    I’ve been anticipating Metropolis since the announcement in 08. Thanks for the Kraftwerk video, and of course everything else.

  2. Thanks, Evan. And these posts are pretty easy to do, I just bookmark notable things during the week. Having a well-stocked RSS feed helps.

    I already have Metropolis on DVD but I’ll happily buy it again for the missing scenes. The quality of the shots in the trailer is better than I hoped for.
