« Excuses, excuses

'Le coeur a ses raisons que la raison ne connait point.'

I read A Swiftly Tilting Planet this weekend and decided that Peter Jackson really ought to get in on the Wrinkle in Time action - that the Wrinkle in Time series deserved the same treatment as The Lord of the Rings and that he could probably do it.

All through the Harry Potter Extravaganza last night (Sorcerer's Stone plus deleted scenes plus previews from Prisoner of Azkaban) they showed previews for a made-for-TV Disney miniseries of A Wrinkle in Time that airs on ABC tonight.

Calvin doesn't have red hair. Mrs Murry isn't beautiful enough. Sandy and Dennys have disappeared. I just know that Charles Wallace is going to sound like a normal 5-year-old and be called "Charles." They're going to mess it up. It's going to be rubbish. It's going to be Disneyfied crap. I'm going to watch it.

The reason that they don't give it the care it deserves is because it was written by a woman and the main character is a woman. Thats just another message brought to you by The Bitter, Burnt Out, 22-Year-Old Feminist.

Damn, I wish I had thought to change my name in the 'thus blahblahed' part, poop on me. Today I really can blame the brain injury, sadly enough

I just read a really cool article about Madeleine L'Engle in The New Yorker. She sounds sooo groovy.

A series? Wrinkle in Time is now a SERIES?!? When did it become a series? NO, no, don't tell me, i feel old enough now as it is...

Well, there's the Time Quartet, then there are also books about Meg's kids...

But I think most of these were written in the 60s!
