To Tinpan Orange who just released their third album called 'the bottom of the lake'. They are a great band with vocals, guitar, ukulele, violin and a manolin. Did I mention they are from Melbourne? Seems like I have a Melbourne thing going in this post!

Ponyo! Legendary Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away) returns with an animated oceanic adventure rich in fantasy. Young Sosuke lives high on a cliff overlooking the Inland Sea. Playing on the rocky beach below his house, Sosuke rescues a golden fish he dubs “Ponyo”. Fascinated by each other, Ponyo and Sosuke become fast friends before embarking on a dazzling underwater adventure for all ages. Review from here where you can also buy tickets if you're in Melbourne, if not check your nearest cimera. I love Studio Ghibli!!
