Turn off the computer …

… and go watch some TV. Tonight, cable channel Turner Classic Movies is featuring a classic — and visually gorgeous — eco-manga by Japan’s master animator, Hayao Miyazaki, 1984’s Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind. In a distant future, humans struggle to survive on a disastrously polluted Earth, constantly at odds with a toxic forest and rather horrible giant insects called Ohmu. But a princess, Nausicaa, suspects there may be a way to live more peacefully with nature — and the other remnants of humanity threatening her valley people. It’s good, really.
