And, as an unrelated epilogue to the previous post: I’m currently home on a Saturday night, watching “Samurai Champloo” for the first time in at least a year. It’s a hip hop spaghetti western about samurais in the Japan’s Edo period. (Yes, just as you thought.) Unless what was promised by the flash-forward goes unfulfilled, this episode will feature Paul Gauguin as a character. Sometimes, life really does suit me too well.
