Yeah, I dont have a copy of the book so I cant check.

I don't remember Fogg in Hawaii but anyway.

I do have plenty of music suggestions for cities if people need them, though.

There is an eBook version of Around the World here. I scanned it and found an early mention of Phileas Fogg's planned route:

"These dates were inscribed in an itinerary divided into columns, indicating the month, the day of the month, and the day for the stipulated and actual arrivals at each principal point Paris, Brindisi, Suez, Bombay, Calcutta, Singapore, Hong Kong, Yokohama, San Francisco, New York, and London--from the 2nd of October to the 21st of December; and giving a space for setting down the gain made or the loss suffered on arrival at each locality. This methodical record thus contained an account of everything needed, and Mr. Fogg always knew whether he was behind-hand or in advance of his time. On this Friday, October 9th, he noted his arrival at Suez, and observed that he had as yet neither gained nor lost."

Of course, this route doesn't mention that Mr. Fogg and his attendant Passepartout started out in London. There are also some unscheduled stops along the way - Shanghai, Omaha and Dublin among them. Hawaii, unfortunately, does not make an appearance. The route, then, looks something like this (parenthetical locations are stops off the main route):

London
Paris
Brindisi, Italy
Suez, Egypt
Bombay
(Brahmain sacred ground in India)
Calcutta
Singapore
Hong Kong
(Shanghai)
Yokohama
San Fransisco
(Fort Kearney, NE)
New York
(Dublin)
(Liverpool)
London

I feel like Dave letterman doing a Top Ten list... :)

Okay - now that I seem to have caused all this confusion:

We'll be going with the RogueIntellect version, unless new evidence surfaces that yet another location has been overlooked.

Sorry - I'm afraid I've only read one Jules Verne novel so far, and this wasn't it. That submarine captain was a pretty interesting guy, though.

I'm still looking eastward, but lack of footage is killing me here :roll:

Let's hope that changes as we get closer to having the project underway.

If it's not called yet, I would like to do the Yokohama part of the project if possible. The anime would be The Hakkenden: Legend of the Dog Warriors. The song is going to be something done by the Japanese composer Mamoru Samuragoch (I haven't decided exactly musical piece to use; I will in a few days).

Tsunami Jones: Ever heard of Kerrigan and The Legendary Frog?

If you don't see a post that called it, it hasn't been called. If you see a post that 'sort-of' called it, you should check with whoever made the post to see if they ever pulled together the rest of their idea and convince them to let go of it if they haven't. Just make sure respect and good manners aren't forgotten and all things will work out pretty smoothly.

Sorry about not being more involved with this one just yet, but I've had all I can do with scraping together enough leftover free time to wrap up my role in the first Instrumentality project. I still check from time to time to see what's going on, however, so I haven't really abandoned this one.

. . . was it a brick? Or perhaps a Walrus in a tophat? No, it was something better than all of those things combined! It was a muffin!

I hope that answers that :wink:

Ah, ok. Sounds good. So anyways, I'm calling the Yokohama part, using The Hakkenden for source footage, and using the song Uga, composed by Mamoru Samuragoch, performed by the Rising Sun symphony.

And yes, I know you and everyone else is still working on wrapping up the firt instrumentality project, but I figure I might as well call a piece of this early, as I'm sure this project will fill up fast once that one ends.[/quote]

Just some footage suggestions:

Read or Die OVA: First episode obviously has the NYC scenes, but the second episode is set somewhere in India...I think it's Calcuta.
Cowboy Bebop-Knockin on Heaven's Door: The Martian city where the main action of the movie takes place in a recreation of NYC.
Castle of Cagliostro: Cagliostro is a fake-european country that might sorta pass for Itallian or French. Of course, the Lupin TV series goes all over the world.

You know, this is a good opportunity for a Tiny Snow Fairy Sugar segment since it takes place in an European setting with lots and lots of sweets. Image

Though I don't know exactly where the series is really located. Image

:o

What kind of European setting?

Do tell, I'm sort of curious, since I've been looking for an 'old-school' European setting, a town to be more exact. It'd be nice if I could find something matching that description - even if it's not for the project :roll:
