Granny O’Grimm’s Horrible Tale of Sleeping Beauty

Granny O’Grimm’s Horrible Tale of Sleeping Beauty

Granny O’Grimm’s Sleeping Beauty is an acclaimed, hilarious animated short directed by Nicky Phelan, which is a 2010 Oscar Nominee for Best Animated Short Film.  The other Nominees are French Roast, Logorama, A Matter of Loaf and Death and The Lady and the Reaper.

Granny O’Grimm turns the age-old traditions of bedtime stories and fairy tales topsy-turvey.  Cleverly crafted as a mixture between a conventional fairy tale and a horror story, this animated short is a wickedly wonky re-telling of a tale that makes us laugh at the same time that its sense of bitterness makes us  reconsider the cost of marginalizing our elderly in a world that’s obsessed with youth and beauty.  It’s both amusing and terribly sad that Granny’s best attempts to be a gentle loving grandmother telling a bedtime story go so very far astray as she gets caught up in her own angry bitterness.

My Faves for Monday, December 10, 2007

The acute desire to express oneself rests upon a wish that others pay attention to our need so we can know it and see what really matters to us. But attention rests upon mutual recognition, the bedrock for loving relations. The painful silence of unspoken words traps one in solitude and loneliness.
Beautiful photos and a gripping video included.

My Articles for Wednesday, September 26, 2007

Today marks the start of the infamous 1969-70 Chicago Seven Trial of activists charged with plotting to incite riots at the 1968 Chicago DNC. That DNC attracted Vietnam War protesters and civil rights activists. They were faced and attacked by Mayor Richard Daley’s brutal police force.

Drawings, photographs and a video photo-gallery are included.

In this week’s “Dancing With the Stars,” the most vivid moment on “Boys’ Night” was when the camera showed the faces of the women competitors after model Albert Reed completed a cha-cha-cha. With so many pelvic gyrations, he could easily get a gig as a Chippendale stripper. The women were absolutely agog! The article includes photographs and video.

Wofford College, the smallest school in Division I football, beat Division I-AA’s top-ranked Appalachian State by a score of 42-31. Fans recall last year’s University of South Carolina game, where Wofford lost a close 27-20 game in the final 5-seconds. This article gives a historic look at this unusual, small college. Photographs and videos are included.
