Mallymkun the Dormouse vs. Reepicheep

With the Alice In Wonderland DVD coming out soon, it made me think about Mallymkun the Dormouse. Mallymkun the Dormouse kinda reminds me of Reepicheep from the Chronicles of Narnia in the sense that the both are loyal and talking mice. In the case of Mallymkun, she’s very loyal to Alice and the Mad Hatter. With Reepicheep, he’s loyal to the Pevensies and Caspian. Anyway, I just thought it was interesting.

Minotaurs

For my Greek and Roman mythology class, we had to know who a certain person or creature was. Anyway, when I was looking up what a minotaur was in the dictionary that we had to get, it mentioned that the name of the original minotaur was Asterius. I found it interesting because in The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, the main minotaur was named Asterius. Personally, I think that the movie people purposely did that. Anyway, I just found it to be interesting.

Chilly Down From Labyrinth

I was watching Labyrinth recently and saw the part with the song Chilly Down. It kinda reminded me of the music from the Beach Boys. And because of that, it reminded me of songs that surfers might listen to. Doesn’t it sound like surfer music? I just found it to be funny.

Sarah from Labyrinth

On Halloween, I went to this Halloween party with a friend of mine at her school. A little FYI, we don’t go to the university and we met in high school. Anyway, at the party, I noticed this girl who was dressed up as Sarah from Labyrinth. At first, I didn’t know that she was supposed to be Sarah. So, I went up to her and asked her what she was supposed to be. So, she told me and I got it. Apparently, when she told everybody else who she was supposed to be, no one got it until me. I just found it interesting because apparently Labyrinth isn’t that popular with my generation.

The Pevensies

I was watching The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian recently. The scene that got me thinking was when Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Caspian were doing the attack on the Telmarine castle. I realized that me and my closest friends were just like the Pevensies in that scene. The oldest friend, who I’m going to call John, is a guy who is currently serving in the Middle East. John, I would say, is like Peter. He could probably kick butt if he were Peter’s shoes. Next would be me. I would be Susan’s counterpart. I’m the oldest girl, the second oldest overall, and I have a background in martial arts. Then comes Bob. Bob is third in age and would be Edmund’s counterpart. He also has a background in martial arts, albeit a different type of martial art from my background. Last, but not least, would be B-Shawty. She’s the youngest from the four of us, and most like Lucy. I say that because she has absolutely no background in any combat training, martial arts, or self-defense training. Because of that, I would put her in charge of helping the sick and wounded. Anyway, but when it comes to me, John, and Bob, I can also imagine us with different weapons and or having extra weapon skills. That’s assuming that we don’t have any type of guns, tanks, etc. With John, I can imagine him being able to use two swords. With Bob, I can imagine him with a sword, of course, and a bow & arrows. And with me, I imagine myself with a pair of sais and a bo, like how Gabrielle did in Xena: Warrior Princess. Anyway, I just found it interesting as to the parallels between the Pevensies and me and my friends.

Tim Burton and Labyrinth

I was watching this Labryinth music video the other day, which I’m not going to upload because it’s not mine, and I thought to myself, Tim Burton would have been a great director for Labyrinth. I don’t know why I thought that. I think what it is is that Tim Burton’s movies and Labryinth has a very similar aesthetic. The only thing that I would be concerned about would be all the puppet use in Labyrinth. Anyway, that’s just what I think.
