Pardon my indulgence if you will, again please…

Last night I sprawled out naked on cialis 5mg online apotheke the couch and watched the Walt Disney bastardization of Lloyd Alexander‘s “The Black Cauldron”. I had grown up reading and re-reading Alexander’s Prydain Chronicles and had even, canada pharmacy viagra back in the halcyon days of 1985, watched the film with my father and sister at the York Theater when there was a York Theater… I was excited when I happened across the DVD at work and quite unashamed to borrow it…

The production had been beset with troubles, not the least of which was attempting to condense five books into an 80 minute movie… You have to forget about relating to the books as you watch or you’ll end up throwing your can of beer at the TV and kicking the DVD player across the room which, it has been suggested, isn’t very polite how much does viagra cost at walgreens and doesn’t solve any of the problems… Even still it’s not the best Disney cartoon you’ve ever seen, althought it was the first to receive a PG rating and the first to use computers in the animation process…

The PG rating is what had me screaming in the theater when I was six, scenes I still remember today… It’s not a pleasant story and the animators really go to town– there’s an army of skeletons, flesh being stripped from bones, bloody faces after beatings and a primary character commits suicide… Unfortunately the rest of the film that wasn’t terrorizing me are too shitty for more adult audiences to enjoy (like the Secret of NIMH) so it’s really just the worst of both worlds thrown together… For a movie that had been in production since cvs pharmacy canada rd 1971 when Disney optioned the

rights you’d think they might have done a little better… Maybe one day I’ll option the stories myself and present them as they should be, five seperate movies with no soppy muppet abortions…

Afterwards I got to thinking about how technology has really fucked everything that was once cool up… Movies are shot like music videos with expensive effects that look less convincing than the scale models of old… I’m not really an animation buff but I still prefer the old drawn style over the rendered 3D blockbusters which have presented the world with an even more jaded and demanding generation than, well, mine… Someone born in 1985 can probably never enjoy something like “Sleeping Beauty” because it will look too foreign, janky and quaint… They probably won’t understand things like Salad Fingers either which aren’t very quaint but are very janky and foreign…

Not that long ago I was recalling with immense pleasure the old video games I used to play instead of have friends… Sierra snagged the contract to do the Disney adaptation of The Black Cauldron, which I only saw once at a friend’s house and didn’t get to play too much) which isn’t the best example of their craft, but they did have a stint as the most revolutionary computer game company in the world… Eventually they became too inflated, moved to Seattle, digitized their games and aired commercials during the Super Bowl and ate shit accordingly… I thought things were sliding downhill prior to the digital bullshit but the last shining moment was their “Willy Beamish“, a game which still enjoyed the humour and spunk of their previous works and incorporated actual animation, drawn by people, cared for and loved… Everytime what is the cialis commercial about I order a Beamish in a bar I still think about the game…

Wait, where was I going? Oh well, next week I’ll talk about how cool 8 Tracks are…
