'Starting on a Journey'  
Thanks to killabeez I found a 'Last Samurai' vid today. The music, the way the scenes flow into each other, the mood, it's truly exquisite. I got more than a little choked up watching it. As you know, I'm a huge Ken Watanabe fan, so this was utterly perfect! It's virtually Tom Cruise free, except for some very brief flashes. If you liked the "The Samurai" ep of Highlander, I think you may like "Starting on a Journey". Thanks, Killa!

I loved The Last Samurai!! (I despise Tom Cruise.) That film was so rich and beautiful! Can't wait to get my hands on a copy.

Ken Watanabe!! How do you say sqeee! in Japanese? :)

A woman after my own heart! Now I even have Ken icons, so all is good [g]

Watching the vid, I was really drawn to his eyes. I once wrote a character in a fic that I said had eyes the colour of Darjeeling tea, and I realized he really does. A sort of Topaz brown. [le sigh]

You know, 'How do you say sqeee! in Japanese?' would be great on an icon, like this one [g] Can I steal the line?

Thanks! You'll be more than welcome to use the icon too if you want to :) We'll see how it turns out.

It isn't a vid for the song, it's a fan vid for Last Samurai using the music SOAJ. That's how I discovered the Yoshida Brothers' music. The video is at the link above in the post.
