7/6/02 -- Further updates from AX -- It has been confirmed that Marc Handler, the original ADR script writer for Cowboy Bebop, has been retained to do the film. Also, other Animaze staff members are said to be working on the movie. This isn't a confirmation of the entire cast, but it is nevertheless a good sign.

7/6/02 -- Very important news from Anime Expo - First: the dub of Knockin' On Heaven's Door will premiere at the Big Apple Anime Festival (August 30 - September 2). That's right, the dub. So in other words, whom ever they're going to cast, has been cast. Here's hoping they made the right decision. I'm going to go ahead and leave the cast petition and letter writing campaign links at the top of this page, though, just in case. Second: the very first screening of Columbia's subtitle of Knockin' On Heaven's Door was screened at AX this week. According to those that saw it, the name was not blotted out in any way. And of course, contrary to stupid, stupid rumor, the music wasn't changed at all. Take that, AICN!! sources: VinceA, Micheal Wilson, and the Anime on DVD forums.

7/3/02 -- URL change for the Cowboy archive - The archive of Cowboy may now be found at Cowboy I would have preferred Cowboy, but some damn search engine swiped that one. Anyway, I figured a domain name would make it easier to find. Hopefully it won't be too confusing. If you have the page linked, I'd prefer you using the address rather than the Jazzmess subdomain. It'll help in case I ever need to switch hosts. *hint, hint*

6/30/02 -- Better late than never, right? - I dunno why I didn't post this sooner. No, that's a lie. I know exactly why: laziness. Way back in May, a member of rec.arts.anime.misc, MC324525 (try saying that three times fast!) visited CN headquarters and made some interesting discoveries. A lot of it is stuff you'll aready know if you were paying attention, but some of it has not been reported elsewhere. Among the more interesting observations in the article are that CN was originally planning to show CB uncut (!) and that one of the CN producers listens the Seatbelts. :)

6/29/02 -- The hilarity continues - *cackle* I never realized it, but even the eye color works for this: Cowboy Bebop: The Movie (by Matt Wilson) I swear to god, if even one of you sends me an e-mail asking me if that poster is for real, I'll, I'll. . . well, I dunno what I'll do, but I'm sure it will be unpleasant! Back in the real world, Cowboy Bebop got a really interesting (and funny) article on Rabid otaku are advised to stay away. ;) "anime that even anime-haters enjoy", indeed.

6/28/02 -- Pay attention, this is important! - I've decided to start a letter writing campaign to try to convince Columbia Tristar to hire the original English dub cast. I'm seriously starting to worry about the situation. Columbia's continued silence is not a good sign. If you care about this issue at all, please send C/TS a letter. I'm going to keep the links to the online petition and the letter writing campaign at the top of this page until Columbia announces the dub cast.

6/27/02 -- alt.anime.cowboy-bebop There's a perfectly good news group going to waste on Usenet: alt.anime.cowboy-bebop. I think we should use it. So come visit sometime, OK? from now on, every news report that I post here will be posted there as well, to promote discussion. Come visit sometime. I'll make a page up about it when I have the time (to send people there). For a rationale behind using a newsgroup, read my thread about this in the forum. Incidentally, newsgroups are not replacements for message boards; I'm still keeping the forum up (of course!), I would just like to propagate alt.anime.cowboy-bebop as well.

6/25/02 -- New tracks up - It's going to take me a while to write pages for all the new tracks, so I went ahead and uploaded them for your listening pleasure in the meantime. They can be found here. I'll only have them up like that for a short time, so don't count on being able to go to that directory. Of the new tracks, I particularly recommend: Waste Land, On The Run, Poor Faye (Lip Cream) and Sax Quartet. Have fun! (just not too much fun. . . I still have bandwidth limits, after all. ^_^;)

6/23/02 -- Cowboy Bebop: The Movie?! Goddamnit. . . - From Anime News Service:

Daniel has obtained the following from the Egyptian Theater (Hollywood) Catalog:

The Cowboy Bebop movie will be showing Sunday August 11 at 5 p.m. at the Egyptian theater in Hollywood. As mentioned earlier, the title has been changed from "Knockin On Heaven's Door" to simply "Cowboy Bebop: The Movie". It will be presented in Japanese with subtitles. Running time seems to be 120 minutes, which is around the same time as Jonah's R2 version; thus no content should be edited post-9/11 as rumoured. Unfortunately, I haven't seen the original in raw or fansubbed format, and I can't make it to see this version. Therefore, if there's anyone else who has seen the film and who can make it, feel free to do so and report on anything that could be edited. (such as the rumoured Yoko Kanno music).

I second the motion; if anyone makes it to this showing, please, please take notes and send in a report. As for Yoko Kanno's music being edited, personally I'm not a bit worried about it. I saw the original "report" about that on AICN; the story was full of holes and the source was far from reliable. It does seem to be the case that they're renaming the film to "the movie" instead of "Knockin' On Heaven's Door", though. >_< Thanks to Roger Smith for pointing out this news to me.

6/23/02 -- It's here, and it's fantastic. My CD box set arrived! W0000000000T! CHA-CHING! And other hyper-active expressions! I'll get the tracks up as soon as may be. I'm encoding them as we speak. I also fixed the schedule from my last update to reflect what's happening June the 29th. Don't know how I forgot it before.

If you're trying to watch CB in order, I've bolded the three episodes you need to watch to keep up. If you've never seen CB before, I advise against watching the marathons. For those of you who have seen it before though, the first "core plot" marathon could be interesting (I've never watched the episodes in that way before, so I think I'll watch that marathon myself).
