Being sick all day, I just read, listened to music and watched videos today. Maybe it’s just the drugs, but I came to a mini-realization how therapeutic escapist media is. From fairy tales to movies, there’s a form of catharsis and comfort in a good, structured story. I watched a Fairy Tale Theater adaptation of the Snow Queen by HC Anderson, which would also become a film sometime later.
Other stuff I did today:
- Read manga (Flame of Recca)
- Take medicine & sleep
- Watched videos of The Walking Dead games on Youtube
- Watched movie trailers
- Babysat the nephews for a bit
- Read Strauss & Howe‘s Generations
Revisionist adaptations of fairy tales seem to be picking up these days. The story may be different, but the archetypes are still there. This Oz trailer looks cool, but it’s unclear what the story is. The graphics is definitely amazing.
