Keepin it Real


Ok. Admission time. I know, I know, it's like the SECOND day im doing this and already I have to purge. Trust me, I wanted a few 'normal' introductory blogs to kick things off, ya know...my favorite color is green, I have a salt water tank, blah blah blah....


Last night I watched Enchanted on DVD. for the SECOND time. That's right: I paid to see it. I dont know why, but the gayness in me really comes out when it comes to Disney musicals, even if they are self-parodies. Gimme a singing virgin and an animal sidekick and I'm hooked. Aside from the instinctual draw for me, what I really like about the film is how it manages to address the things in real life that are 'fantasy killers' and forces them into song and dance for our amusement.


The only real qualm I have with the movie is one specific scene where Giselle (jezel? jah-sel?) feels anger for the first time, and in front of millions of families across the world who bought into the film up until this point...feels lust. Now maybe I'm the minority here (yeah I'm asian, --I'm talking bout the movie) but the movie went from a classy and tastefull depiction of a modern day fantasy, to a brief soft-core moment where jezebel (how could I leave that alone) is twirling her fingers around the chest hairs of a man who happens to be spoken for...WHOA...


Well looks like they thought they should keep it 'really real' after all. But then...well it just makes me wonder what Giselle goes though when she starts feelin cramps at the end of the month...

Ha! This is funny. Good thoughts though. ;) I think, since I graduated from school, that my vocab has stopped growing, and in fact, may be shrinking! You're a great writer, I like reading your blog!
