Yes it is called Laputa..... that name may work fine in Japan but when it was sent over to America the name "Laputa" sounds too similar to a Spanish word that is not very flattering. Granted the US is not a Spanish speaking nation but there's quite a number of Hispanic people in the US so the name had to be changed for the US market.

buildings in the sky? it could happen!

You know better than this. It's not a press release come on people are smarter than this i would expect. IT was not just made up. As i said the was for res development of two towers in DIFC.
Now i remeber other articles on the page were about the first booking taken for rocket to the limits of space. I cant remeber the rest of the page.Any one with half a brain could see it was joke
trouble is taken out of context is very hard. Many people were fooled even with it was take as a whole page and in print in Dubai. Its still all over real estate add for dubai and the rest of it

LOL

Oh well i dont this story will die will keepcoming up for years to come i expect

BTW Castles in the Sky is a rather nice rave track.
