Turner Classic Movies is having Miyazaki/Ghibli Thursdays this month.

Nine movies including Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke (both airing tonight), but also Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind, Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, Porco Rosso, Whisper of the Heart, Only Yesterday and Pom Poko.

I'm (very pleasantly) surprised with the last three since they're harder to come by, particularly Only Yesterday, but they're all awesome. Only Yesterday and Pom Poko were both directed by the same guy (Isao Takahata) who directed Grave of the Fireflies (seriously, one of my favorite movies ever. Animated or otherwise). Highly recommended, but anyone who's seen it...? They know how mandatory kleenex and perhaps many an alcoholic substance is needed during viewing. Easily one of the most unrelentingly heart-wrenching movies I've ever seen. Only Yesterday and Pom Poko aren't so brutal, but still good (allbeit not as good as GotF, but then, GotF is fucking awesome).
