We’re leaving for this trip super early tomorrow, I still have to finish packing, but I’m going to now spend time I can’t spare pitting and freezing four quarts of sour cherries, because that’s how I roll
That’s right, I’m back at it again. With wings this time! And legs! (Pixie boots were kinda a given)
Heh, but yeah. Last picture I drew for you, I was so grateful that you actually responded to it. And I’m.. again.. very blunt. Though, I’ve been giving it a lot of thought lately in how I’m going to say this, but I should really stop over thinking for my own good and just say it.
Your art inspires many and kinda speaks to me in a weird way. Like.. shows your personality a bit. The little #tags you write, here and there, are quite enjoyable and sometimes even make me laugh and/or smile.
I don’t know you, but I can tell you’re an amazing, kind, talented, and over all great person. I’d love to get to know you better. Though I’m pretty sure I’m to shy to do this kind of thing like.. ever. I can’t shake the feeling that we could be pretty great friends.
Sorry for my overly awkward and pretty awful proposal to initiate a friendship, but it’s all I got.
There will always be those who hate something simply because it’s popular and they can. Those who let themselves be consumed by something so trivial. And they’ll give themselves any excuse to. But there’s no reason to sweat it. Just keep on rollin.
I saw a bullshit HuffPo article in which the author took issue with the Maleficent trailer for calling her Disney’s most… something… notorious? memorable?… villain. And this author took it upon herself, because she is Queen of All Things Disney apparently, to construct a counter-list that she deemed the “definitive” list of Disney’s top villains.
…definitive? Really? How self-important.
While she did manage to get some of the more important Disney villains in the top 20 or so, they were arranged haphazardly. Maleficent was at 12. Freaking 12!!! And Lady Tremaine from Cinderella was dubbed more important.
Let’s get something straight.
Lady Tremaine is one of the quintessential Disney villains, okay? Because Cinderella is and always will be one of the quintessential Disney films. She was malicious, manipulative and backstabbing. But let’s pit her against Maleficent for one second, okay?
Lady Tremaine never lets Cinderella rest. She’s constantly making her do chores and putting her down out of envy and some misguided desire for her daughters to do better in life (as in the case of not letting Cinderella attend the ball). And when she realizes it’s Cinderella Prince Charming is after, she takes a key and locks her upstairs. Oh, and she has a cat that likes to terrorize Cinderella’s mice friends sometimes.
Maleficent, on the other hand, curses a baby to die because she didn’t get invited to a party. That’s batshit insane. I didn’t get invited to a friend’s wedding but I didn’t show up and tell her I was going to throw her dog in a woodchipper.
Lady Tremaine is a manipulative grouch but the height of her evilness is turning a key in a lock. Not only does Maleficent lure Aurora to the spindle with an unearthly green light to ensure that her sleeping spell is pulled off, her thugs beat down Prince Philip and imprison him and she horrifies him with the notion that he’ll be an old man by the time he’s free to awaken Aurora. He’s getting away? Fuck that, Maleficent will send a forest of thorns of thorns to be his tomb born through the skies on a fog of doom. He made it through? Well damn, now you’re going to have to deal with Maleficent, O prince. Yup. She just shouted “hell” in a Disney movie. Shit just got real. And she turns into a fucking dragon. How’s that key look now, Lady Tremaine? And she doesn’t breath red fire. She breaths green fucking fire. Ain’t no dragon like a Maleficent dragon.
Anyway, we know it’s curtains for both ladies but seriously. I just had to put my two cents in because I think that list is a joke.
Maleficent is at least one of the top three most memorable Disney villains if not the most memorable.
