It's Called a Hustle, Sweetheart


I rewatch the 2009 Syfy miniseries Alice over the past week and, well, I really do love that re-imagining of the Alice in Wonderland story. It doesn't try to be the original, but it does pay homage to it. Plus it's one of the only versions I know that actually use John Tenniel's Jabberwock design - and the only version that seems to remember that Jabberwocky is the name of the poem, and not the beast.

I've also been watching an old kid's show. It's Australian, from 2001, and it's called Escape of the Artful Dodger. Serious deviations from Dickens' canon aside? It's ... actually really good. Like, surprisingly so, considering that a lot of kid's shows from around that time period were not exactly the greatest. But we've got decent acting coupled with a decent plot. Plus just general hilarity. That it's a deliberate period piece has made it age well and I'm really enjoying myself watching this. Even enough to order the DVD. Yeah, there was a DVD, released in Germany. Go figure. That should arrive by 7th April going by this thing so that'll be nice.

Life's sort of been, well, eh to tell you the truth. I've been feeling like crap because my doctor is getting on about the weight despite the fact that I'm eating healthily and exercising and nothing is happening. This feeling crap leads me to push myself too hard and frankly my legs have only recently stopped hurting from all of that, and now my stomach is punishing me too. Vicious cycle that will continue because of course it will, my life does not let me have moments of happy. No wonder I'm finding such enjoyment in a kid's show. It's a lot easier to deal with.

Ah well. Happy Easter to those who celebrate it.

Name a character in any of my fandoms and I'll tell you 3-4 things about them from my personal fanon-take on said character. (Per usual, "from any of my fandoms" can be "any fictional character you think I'm familiar with" though it's possible I won't have an ANSWER).

List all of the television shows you have on DVD, no matter how obscure or embarrassing. Even if you only own one season, list it! Let's see who has what!

Doing it in alphabetical order. And yes,there is a lot of dvds on this list. Why? Well, I get given some as presents, some are randomly picked up at the supermarket when doing shopping, and some are just found cheaply. Before you know it, you've got a sizeable collection. I tend to have a dvd clean out every so often.

So, as you might have guessed, I've pretty much fallen in love with the SyFy tv miniseries Alice. With certain fandoms, I like having a memento of them. It's actually how the action figure thing started, but eh. Long story short? I want to try to make Alice and Hatter figures.
