"Miyazaki taps a cigarette from a silver case. The Disney deal suits him, he explains, because he has stuck to his guns. His refusal to grant merchandising rights means that there is no chance of any Nausicaa happy meals or Spirited Away video games. Furthermore, Disney wields no creative control. There is a rumour that when Harvey Weinstein was charged with handling the US release of Princess Mononoke, Miyazaki sent him a samurai sword in the post. Attached to the blade was a stark message: “No cuts.”

The director chortles. “Actually, my producer did that. Although I did go to New York to meet this man, this Harvey Weinstein, and I was bombarded with this aggressive attack, all these demands for cuts.” He smiles. “I defeated him.”"

On this day in….1977:
Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumours” is released in the US. The album peaked at the top of the charts and has sold over 40 million copies worldwide. What else do I need to say about Rumours? If you don’t have it you should get it (buy the new Deluxe Edition, it’s really great), and if you have this but nothing else from Fleetwood Mac you should buy their other albums because you’re missing out on a lot of good music.
