The "Rum" Diary

"Voices rose and fell in the house next door and the raucous sound of a jukebox came from a bar down the street. Sounds of a San Jean night, drifting across the city through layers of humid air; sounds of life and movement, people getting ready and people giving up, the sound of hope and the sound of hanging on and behind them all, the quiet, deadly ticking of a thousand hungry clocks, the lonely sound of time passing in long Caribbean night."
It was a nice weekend! :P

Some of my favourite Disney movies scenes

Cause I'm the magnificent, marvelous, mad ...

Madam Mim is a highly skilled witch. She was originally created by T. H.White for his novel The Sword in the Stone from 1938. White rewrote the story in the 1958 version The Once and Future King where Madam Mim and her Wizard's Duel with Merlin was left out, but when Disney adapted the story in 1963, Madam Mim was used in the story although in a somewhat altered form (voice by Martha Wentworth).

Mim is presented as boisterous, mischievous, and rather conceited, a sorceress much impressed with her own power who delights in causing trouble. She is also a somewhat morbid character with a distaste for sunshine and all things wholesome.
She has got green eyes and grey hair with a purple tinge.
"I hate sunshine. I hate horrible, wholesome sunshine! I hate it, I hate it! I HATE IT!"

The main ability she can display is her shape-shifting skill with which she can take the form of anything she wants.
She can magically make herself uglier, and then beautiful. She can turn into: an alligator, a fox, a hen, a elephant, a tiger, a rattlesnake, and a rhinoceros, all of which were colored pink and an ugly, purple, fire-breathing dragon. 
Why do I like her? Actually, I think she is not much of an antagonist. She is cute but in a creepy way :) Some villains are supposed to be funny and silly and she is one of them. An old grumpy lady who is mean and crazy :) Simply adorable! She can be whatever she wants to be!!! She can be pretty but her choice is to stay fat and ugly! And that is for respect... :)
Self-serving, bad-tempered, quite unscrupulous, and, above all, mad, mad Madam Mim ....yeah! She is cool!

Some Madam Mim's quotes:
[preparing for the Wizards' Duel]
Madame Mim: Now, first of all, if you don't mind, I'll make the rules.
Archimedes the Owl: Rules indeed! Why, she only wants rules so she can break 'em.
Madame Mim: I'll take care of you later, feather-brain.
[Archimedes huffs indignantly]
Madame Mim: Rule One: No mineral or vegetable, only animals. Rule Two: No make-believe things like, ooh, pink dragons and stuff. Now, Rule Three: No disappearing.
[pinches Merlin playfully on the nose]
Merlin: Rule Four: No cheating.

Merlin: Now Mi-Mim, n-no dragons, remember?
Madame Mim: Did I say no purple dragons? Did I?

Magic of the Vinyl

Parallel grooves

Lot of recording are on CD, but the CD can't capture one aspect of the experience of listening to the record.

      "My father bought this record new in 1975 and, over the next few days, we listened to it several times. About the third time we heard it, we both had the impression that we were hearing some bits we hadn't heard the first time and that some of the bits we'd heard before were now missing from the record. We knew that was impossible, but something still seemed strange.

The initial pressings were packaged with a real tie and handkerchief and distributed to menswear stores, the concept being that the record was merely a 'free gift' in the manner of plasticdinosaurs with breakfast cereals. It is also notable for its inner sleeve art, which is visible through a cutaway hole in the album's outer sleeve. It appears to be a simple Terry Gilliam artwork of a tie and handkerchief, but when the inner sleeve is pulled out, it reveals that the tie and handkerchief are actually on a dead man hanging rather graphically from a gallows. Later releases of the album would just have the picture of the clothing on the front cover, and removed the inner sleeve and the unusual hidden artwork.

The word yellow ....FAIL!!! LOL
