A science fiction film like no other- Vanishing Waves offers a truly fresh, sexy, and highly original take on the genre. When a young researcher volunteers for a sensory deprivation experiment he is tasked with communicating with a comatose woman. Soon, through these unorthodox means, the subject and the scientist begin to develop an unlikely emotional and sexual bond. As things develop further, the waters begin to muddy and their unique relationship is threatened by external and more earthbound forces.
Rarely seen outside of its native Japan, Ocean Waves is one of Studio Ghibli’s most obscure and sought after titles. Based upon Saeko Himuro’s most popular novel, Ocean Waves is a poignant and unsung masterpiece. Kochi is your average coastal town and young Taku is definitely your average high school student. But soon his life will be turned upside down with the arrival of Rikako: a beautiful student recently transferred from Tokyo. By the end of term Taku will have learnt a valuable lesson in love and friendship.
Permanent Waves’ is the seventh studio album by the Canadian rock band Rush, released in January 1980 on Anthem Records. The album marked a departure in the band's musical style towards tighter song structures and songs more suitable for radio airplay. Permanent Waves was recorded in late 1979 at Le Studio in Morin Heights, Quebec and with co-producer Terry Brown and mixed at Trident Studios in London. The waving man in the background of the album cover is actually Hugh Syme, the band’s long time design collaborator. The album artwork is now available as a 500 piece jigsaw puzzle printed on high quality board.
