Cinematical Seven: The Horror of Fairy Tales – Cinematical

I distinctly remember riding the bus to school on cold mornings like this one reading these and other fairy tales in all their bloody, passionate magnificence. They were shocking and wonderful and a sort of naughty escape for my 14-year-old self from the small, conservative town I grew up in.

I still love fairy tales.

Bonus: Listen to Neil Gaiman’s retelling of Snow White from the “wicked” witch, “Snow Glass Apples.”

I played the flute for seven years in junior high and high school and loved it. (I really think being in band saved my sanity in those days.) I ran across this today. How complicated would it be to just pick this up and play every once in a while? And listen to how beautiful it sounds!
