I’ve already mentioned Roald Dahl as being one of my favorite authors as a child. So obviously, I’d read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and when it was time for the Tim Burton movie to be out in the cinemas, I stupidly thought it could be good. What a big mistake! I found it pretentious and exaggerated, and not reflecting the light humor of the original story at all, which is also the reason why I decided to stay away from his adaptation of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (which is another favorite book of mine.)
My name has five letters in it, and comes up in some Bright Eyes songs. I am (apparently) an artist, with too much time on her hands. Well, enough to blog (almost) daily. I am 1/4 (the smallest one, actually) of Lazy Acre Records; I also write & photograph for a
localmagazine based in Englaaand and makeused to draw musically-inspired comics for a canadian mag (RIP Inscribed). As if that wasn't enough, I book bands for a local experimental music venue called Subterrarium: we rock pretty hard. Sometimes I can be quite cute. I used tostill have a crush on Marty McFly; I like baking, overusing semi-colons, the smell of the sea, and thunderstorms.
I tend to be quite the busy bee, but if you make VERY sexy music and want me to listen and enjoy and possibly even (!!) write about it, shoot me a mail, baby. music(at)alicetragedy(dot)org
