All Ozma’s Parties

All Ozma’s Parties


It may seem a bit odd to wish a happy birthday to a fictional character, but I’ve seen people do it for Harry Potter and Bilbo and Frodo Baggins, so why not? According to The Road to Oz, today is the birthday of Ozma of Oz. In this book, she has a grand celebration and invites notables from all over fairyland, which serves within the fiction as a way to make alliances with her neighbors, and…

Samus is a badass, and she deserves to be depicted as such. There’s so much sexualised art of her in her Zero Suit, that I almost tend to forget that she’s a relentless, efficient hunter.

The Wonderful Whistles of Oz

The Wonderful Whistles of Oz


I mentioned in my post on the warp whistles in Super Mario Bros. 3 that there were some magic whistles in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, although as far as I know none of them summoned the tornado. One is the silver whistle that Dorothy uses to contact the Queen of the Field-Mice, and another is used by the Wicked Witch of the West to summon her wolves, crows, and bees. This is also described as…

I don’t think anybody understands why it’s okay to have super powers as long as you weren’t born with them. I guess it’s just part of the problem with all of Marvel’s comics taking place in the same world. It’s a good thing for the most part, but it can lead to contradictions like that.

The Dance. Fabio Fabbi (Italian, 1861-1910). Watercolor and pencil on paper.
The present scene depicts one of Fabbi’s favourite themes: Raks Baladi, the popular folk dance of Egypt which is believed to have mothered all Oriental dance. The women don long, simple robes indigenous to Egypt with some ornamentation around the bust and scarves accentuating the hips.

Froggy Kisses


The Princess and the Frog – Beth and I saw this back when it was in the theater, but I only wrote a little bit about it then. This was Disney’s return to hand-drawn animation after a few computer-animated features, as well as the introduction of their first black princess. While this was overdue, it also meant Disney had to tread carefully to avoid being accused of racial insensitivity. I…
