fender_qt2:40pm: Hello!!

My name is Samantha.. and I stumbled across this community as if God created a livejournal community and threw it in my face. We are performing a play at my school and well.. the play just so happens to be Alice in Wonderland.. but rather, an adaptation of it called Follow That Rabbit. We auditioned and I got the part of the white rabbit. We did some mere line memorizing and my character is definitley fun, but rather difficult for me to play.. which is why I have come to try and receive help from all of you.

I've seen 2 versions of the cartoon and in both.. the White Rabbit runs around like a lunatic, but that is all. Since I won't be a cartoon and must have facial expressions and characterization, I seem to be having a hard time finding the character within the White Rabbit. The White Rabbit, no doubt is always paranoid about time and being let.. but everytime I perform it.. it seems like I am scared. Would you consider the White Rabbit scared?

And his humour.. if any of you are familiar with his sarcasm, anyone wanna clue me in?

And my last final request and question... if anyone has any pictures of what the White Rabbit looks like in a stage version of Alice in Wonderland or any youtube/any other site clips of the stage performances or anywhere the White Rabbit was played and not a cartoon, it would very much be appreciated!!!

desiderata_717111:39pm: "Ambrosial Garden"- an original work
Sitting in an ambrosial garden
Curled and questioning life
In simple vowels
That really mean nothing at all.
Playing with the minds of little children
Ever the pondering minstrel
Dreams go unfulfilled
However pensive he appears
Regardless of (exhale) what seems to be
It is not so
For if you experience one or the other you are destined to change
And what was once unusual becomes free
Vanishing into the sky.
And the child stays with the
Never ending decisions of youth
Sitting in an ambrosial garden.

Don't forget to fill out the Curiouser/Curiouser survey!

Okay in Alice News: My brother just came back from Florida and bought me the DVD of Alice in Wonderland (Disney) and if anyone else owns it, I have to ask...did the live action tea party freak you out??? I was totally freaked out...live action imitations of cartoons tend to do that to me hahaha
Just a thought ;) LOVED seeing an older Kathleen Beaumont though...she still sounds just like she did when she was younger...:D

I'm odd!

desiderata_71717:25pm: The top 10 most popular/well known quotes

These are mostly from the books but if there is a quote that is missing that you think should be here??? POST IT! MAKE YOURSELF KNOWN! hahaha

These two are my favourites:

 "All this she took in like a picture...watching the strange pair and listening, in a half dream, to the melancholy music of the song" - Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There

" Let me think: was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I'm not the same, the next question is... who in the world am I? Ah, THAT'S the great puzzle!" - Alice's Adventures in Wonderland



 1) 'Curiouser and curiouser!' cried Alice.

2) 'But then,' thought Alice. 'shall I never get any older than I am now? That'll be a comfort, one way--never to be an old woman--but then--always to have lessons to learn!'

3) `Who are YOU?' said the Caterpillar. This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, `I--I hardly know, sir, just at present-- at least I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.'

4) `Keep your temper,' said the Caterpillar.

5) `But I don't want to go among mad people,' Alice remarked. `Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat: `we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.' `How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice. `You must be,' said the Cat, `or you wouldn't have come here.' Alice didn't think that proved it at all; however, she went on` And how do you know that you're mad?' `To begin with,' said the Cat, `a dog's not mad. You grant that?' `I suppose so,' said Alice. `Well, then,' the Cat went on, `you see, a dog growls when it's angry, and wags its tail when it's pleased. Now I growl when I'm pleased, and wag my tail when I'm angry. Therefore I'm mad.'

6) The Queen turned crimson with fury, and, after glaring at her for a moment like a wild beast, screamed `Off with her head! Off--' `Nonsense!' said Alice, very loudly and decidedly, and the Queen was silent. The King laid his hand upon her arm, and timidly said `Consider, my dear: she is only a child!'

7) `Get to your places!' shouted the Queen in a voice of thunder, and people began running about in all directions, tumbling up against each other; however, they got settled down in a minute or two, and the game began. Alice thought she had never seen such a curious croquet-ground in her life; it was all ridges and furrows; the balls were live hedgehogs, the mallets live flamingoes, and the soldiers had to double themselves up and to stand on their hands and feet, to make the arches. The chief difficulty Alice found at first was in managing her flamingo: she succeeded in getting its body tucked away, comfortably enough, under her arm, with its legs hanging down, but generally, just as she had got its neck nicely straightened out, and was going to give the hedgehog a blow with its head, it WOULD twist itself round and look up in her face, with such a puzzled expression that she could not help bursting out laughing: and when she had got its head down, and was going to begin again, it was very provoking to find that the hedgehog had unrolled itself, and was in the act of crawling away: besides all this, there was generally a ridge or furrow in the way wherever she wanted to send the hedgehog to, and, as the doubled-up soldiers were always getting up and walking off to other parts of the ground, Alice soon came to the conclusion that it was a very difficult game indeed. The players all played at once without waiting for turns, quarrelling all the while, and fighting for the hedgehogs; and in a very short time the Queen was in a furious passion, and went stamping about, and shouting `Off with his head!' or `Off with her head!' about once in a minute.

8) `A cat may look at a king,' said Alice. `I've read that in some book, but I don't remember where.' `Tut, tut, child!' said the Duchess. `Everything's got a moral, if only you can find it.' And she squeezed herself up closer to Alice's side as she spoke.

9) `I quite agree with you,' said the Duchess; `and the moral of that is--Be what you would seem to be--or if you'd like it put more simply--Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.' `I think I should understand that better,' Alice said very politely, `if I had it written down: but I can't quite follow it as you say it.' `That's nothing to what I could say if I chose,' the Duchess replied, in a pleased tone.

10) `Now, I give you fair warning,' shouted the Queen, stamping on the ground as she spoke; `either you or your head must be off, and that in about half no time! Take your choice!'

mickey_phoenix11:54am: Trivia from the Disney version! Enjoy!
Color screen tests of Mary Pickford as Alice were made for a proposed live-action/animation version of the story.

Kathryn Beaumont, who was the voice of Alice, narrates the "Alice in Wonderland" ride at Disneyland.

Sterling Holloway, who performed the voice of the Cheshire Cat, played the Frog in the 1933 version of Alice in Wonderland (1933)

The first Disney animated film to have ending credits - a feature not repeated until The Black Cauldron (1985) .

The movie took five years to complete, but was in development for over ten years before it entered active production.

This movie is actually a combination of Lewis Carroll's Alice books, Alice in Wonderland and Through The Looking glass

This was the first Disney theatrical film to be shown on television, in 1954. It was shown as the second installment of the "Disneyland" (1954) TV show, edited to fit into a one hour time slot.

The Doorknob was the only character in Disney's Alice in Wonderland that did not appear in Lewis Carroll's books.

With 14 original songs, this is the most musical Disney feature ever.

The fish watching the Walrus lure the oysters away are the same fish that watch Pinocchio search for Monstro the whale in Pinocchio (1940).

Early drafts of the script had Alice encounter the Jabberwock (to have been voiced by Stan Freberg), from Lewis Carroll's poem "Jabberwocky". The sequence was rejected, either because it slowed the story down, or because of concerns that it would be too frightening. Elements of "Jabberwocky" remain in the film, however: the Cheshire Cat's song "Twas Brillig", consisting of the opening stanza; and the Tulgey Wood sequence, which includes at least one of the creatures mentioned in the poem, the Mome Raths.

Lewis Carroll wrote the riddle "Why is a raven like a writing desk?" as nonsense - it has no answer. This has not stopped people, despite being repeatedly told that there is not, nor should there be, any answer, from trying to contrive one. Among the suggestions are, "because Poe wrote on both" and "because the notes for which they are noted are not noted for being musical notes" (the second of which is very similar to a solution that Carroll himself wearily suggested when he grew tired of people asking him about it).

desiderata_71719:10pm: Alice sighed wearily. `I think you might do something better with the time,' she said, `than waste it in asking riddles that have no answers.'

`If you knew Time as well as I do,' said the Hatter, `you wouldn't talk about wasting it. It's him.'

`I don't know what you mean,' said Alice.

`Of course you don't!' the Hatter said, tossing his head contemptuously. `I dare say you never even spoke to Time!'

(I do love how they personify Time...it's so true hehehe He's the cause of their madness afterall, what Alice is trying to escape, what the Hatter offended etc...) EHn, just something to think about ;)

desiderata_717111:17pm: Okay, so it's offcial, we have people joining, slowly obviously but surely!

So, question to all: while we love and adore Alice in Wonderland, do you think it's an appropriate movie for children?

*side note* which other Disney films do you find *ify*?

I'll write more about this later but here are my *ify* movies:

1) Hunchback of Notre Dame (shouldn't have been made at all in my opinion)
2) Bambi (suicidal pheasant, depressing death/murder of a child's mother)
3) Dumbo (yes, let's lock up protective and loving mothers in insane asylums *wtf*)
4) Fantasia (Too deep at times for children, great for teens and adults who appreciate music and art)
5) Our dear Alice in Wonderland (substance images *nang*)
