Definitely unprecedented early BBQ

It's 80F on March 21st... Well, it is inland; here on the shore it's the low 60s thanks to a surface water temp of 48F. But still! I drove back from my brother's wedding with the top down and got a sunburn! It's been sunny and clear and warm for days now.

I really don't know what to do with myself... I'm not ready for spring cleaning, and I'm still kind of feeling hibernate-y and sleepy.

I suppose it won't last, and April will be the usual rainy-and-chilly as it's always been. So for now, I'm gonna grill a couple of steaks and be content with the day as I have it.

Another spring show to look forward to!

Somehow I missed this news, but Sayo Yamamoto is directing the Lupin III reboot!

Back in August I was (drunkenly) lamenting her disappearance since Michiko to Hatchin, but well then, here we are...

I started watching Leiji Matsumoto's Ozma last night as well. That's chock-full of old-school look & feel, I tell ya. A bit stiff, but full of great design and classic trope-a-liciousness. Should make a fun Saturday morning breakfast 'toon.

Haven't really dug deep into other news about new shows, but I'll keep my eyes open.

EDIT: OMG, if this is actually the trailer for the reboot, I... I...



...I'll be in my bunk.
