AS I CLOSE THIS WORLD, I OPEN THE NEXT
Friday, October 30, 2009 4:11:06 AM
Yes, I went dark, deep into the black. There I found a door. And I opened it...
Back in 2006, right after I first saw Serenity, I was reading a local web board, and someone was asking about Firefly. And I made the following entry: "I liked Serenity very much. Firefly is warmer, though." Nothing earth-shattering, really, except... I hadn't seen Firefly yet! (I had only just ordered it). And I wasn't lying, either. Not because it happened to be true, but because I already KNEW it to be true, as sure as the turning of the worlds -- ante facto , as it were. In my soul I made a statement I knew, to the core of my being, to be absolutely truthful. It was as if I had already seen the series. It felt as if my (benevolent) spirit guides -- yes, I believe in that sort of thing -- were infusing me, with all their might, with the Firefly Love -- obviously realizing upfront what beneficial effect it would have on my soul. They were not wrong.
This ante facto soul perception, if I may so call it, I've never experienced before, and only once thereafter: two weeks ago, when I stumbled on a "Serial Experiments Lain" fan site. I had never heard of this Anime before (yes, seems I'm always behind on the good stuff, lol). And yet I knew, instantly, without even reading anything further about it, that Lain would be my next obsession! And that, soul-wise, it would be on par with Firefly for me; and that I needed to acquire the disks, at all cost, without hesitation. Now! Needless to say -- but you like to hear me say it anyway -- Lain proved to be everything I thought it would be, and more! And it has, as per my premonition, indeed become my next obsession. There's no point in trying to explain Lain, though; it's too complex, really, to be reduced to two sentences or so. Lain, like Firefly, is something you must absorb with your soul, and live. Ain't no other way.
So I ordered the shiny Lain DVD box. The image quality is what can be expected from a SD source: medium to low-end medium. And as I was lamenting this one minus, only yesterday, today I just got wave... after all this time since its initial release in 1998 (!) Lain will be released on Blu-Ray!! Come December 23 of this year of our fluffy Lord, I will own the Blu-Ray of Lain!! Can it be true!? Can I affect reality as I see fit? Seems too much of a coincidence!
Don't worry. I'm still me.
P.S. And yes, Rhyianan, my friend, Lain was made for you! :)
