fairytales

Amongst the many many random conversation that happen during the OT between me and my partners (in crime ;p), somehow we ended up discussing this song.



Do you remember this???

I couldn’t even wait till i even got home that day. I connected to youtube, and had the song blasting off my car for the next 3 days 6 days till now ;p

And from there, one related video took me to the next



And the next



And the next



And the next



And the next



and the next



The next thing i knew, i spent the weekend all curled up infront of the TV with the VCR (ee imagine! shakhbary ;p), spending hours and hours recollecting my childhood memories one Disney movie at a time...

I guess this comment just summed up how i felt :(



Whatever happened to fairytales?








Apparently, Disney has stopped making fairytale movies until further notice after Tangled and The princess and the Frog. They found that most of the people who went to see those were people in their 20s (ie me ;p) and not kids like before. They found that kids are now more interested in Hannah Montana and you know...other lame characters whose names i don’t know (twin kids of hotel, brunette who is a witch, fat dude living in the white house). Kids now are more interested in being cool and sexy and what not, rather than fairytales...our kids now are too óld’ for fairytales (unlike us who are still looking for our prince charming because we grew up believing this crap lol)

But you know, that doesn’t bother me as much as does the fact ena there’s no more innocence in Disney movies. It’s always about getting the girl oo having a girlfriend oo they’re all kissing here and there chenna el3eed. This never happened before in Disney movies, and if it did, it was always KNOWN ena hatha shay ghala6 oo mo 6abe3y like now. Remember? Dayman the kiss we saw in Disney movies was in the last scene where they get married and live happily ever after.And always the guy would aim to make the girl his wife, not his girlfriend.

It scares me to know the kind of values and standards kids nowadays are growing up to.

But, until then, ill go back to living in my fairytale land :)







And my personal favourite



and one last one...for the little kids inside of us who still believe in magic :)

YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT !!!

I miss the days when we couldn't wait for the next Disney movie to come out and we'd rush to see it. I remember when i went to see Toy Story 3, the whole theater was packed with adults lol. Not a single little kid. Which is kinda sad.

It's true that kids aren't interested in fairytales as much as we were. And to them it's all about "grown up" stuff.

But, i know one thing for sure. When i have kids, i'll bring them up watching the awesome cartoons of our time. Even the cool ones like Thundercats and Silver Hawks ;).

I swear i still enjoy every second watching these old cartoons. :) Thanks for the memories dandoon :)
