So with the upcoming Alice in Wonderland movie, the "alice hype" is on the rise again! I notice that it comes and goes every once in awhile, but now that Tim Burton is putting his twist on the story, I bet it will stick around for a lot longer. Growing up I always loved watching the Alice in Wonderland (disney version of course) and wanting to go to wonderland. haha. I always wanted my own moneraths. XD They were super cool how they made an arrow to have her follow the path. A lot of the people I talk to say that the movie scared them when they were growing up, but I found the movie always entertaining. I loved the singing and would sing along with a lot of the songs. XD I think my favorite parts of that movie were the scene in Tulgey Wood and the Walrus and the Carpenter song. For some weird reason.
I remember when I was in middle school, before the latest thing were it's "cool" to own a Mac (I grew up with them my whole life) I saw a game called American McGee's Alice that you could actually play with a Mac computer! Many game fans know that mac's are never really game friendly. Anyways, at that age, I thought it looked really scary and something my parents would have not let me play. :( So I never got a chance to play the game. Apparently it is out of print and SUPER hard to find. People are selling it on ebay and amazon for $120+!!!! =O Looking back now, I think this would be an awesome game to play! The storyline is that Alice is a teen, and all her family is killed in a tragic fire. She ends up being schizophrenic and Wonderland is suffering because of it. She has to go back to save Wonderland. Everything in Wonderland is a bit twisted because of her new personality, which makes it sound all the more devious. I've tried a lot of different ways to get to play the game, but no such luck yet. Maybe someday they will remake the game now with the even bigger Alice following that is to come this year.
All in all, Alice fever has swept up again, but I think people will always have a fascination with weird stuff like Wonderland. Sure there are a lot who like it for the acid-trip type experience and what they can do with drugs, but for some it's just childhood. I own a SUPER old copy of the original Alice and Through the Looking Glass books, and I am starting to read them now. I've always wanted to be an Alice for Halloween, but it's hard to find a normal looking one without being too slutty. XD For now, I'll stick to my nice DSK Wonderland bracelet. haha. This story will always have a close place in my heart, and no matter how popular this series is going to get (it can't get any worse than twilight XD) I will stick by it. :) Anyone else a big Alice in Wonderland fan? Anyone else waiting for the new movie to come out?
