A coworker was asking about new comic books he could read. He heard from various sources to try out Saga and Fables.
Saga is about this women with tiny horns and wings. And then there’s a big guy next to her that has bigger horns and wings. And she’s holding a baby. That’s all I really know about it. (But I did find the first issue for free on my Kindle. I am not much of a comic book fan bc I don’t really like to look at the pictures. And I’m sure I lose the rest of the comic book experience by viewing it in e-ink versus full color).
Then he mentioned Fables. He said it was about fairy tale characters out in the real world. He said, “Like, what if Snow White lived in NYC? How about the dwarves?”
And I was like, “Oh, that’s a great concept!”
And then he said, “Yeah. How many times do you watch fairy tales and wonder what happened to these people after the scene cut?”
To which I replied, “Yeah, I feel like we don’t get the whole story in fairy tales.”
And then he nodded and said, “Yeah, like why did Gepetto make Pinocchio? Some shit had to go down. I bet his son died and he was trying to fill a void.”
To which I said, “Right, right. Or Gepetto was a child molester and couldnt be within so many feet of boys younger than 12 years old or something.”
Someone asked: If you could make a movie from another character’s perspective, what movie and who?
I’ve never seen Mrs. Doubtfire all the way through and Robin Williams terrified me in One Hour Photo so sign me up for Mrs Doubtfire 2: The 90s Are Still Cool, Right?
Alternate Title: Mrs Doubt Fire(s) Again!
