You may all be thinking, “I hate this game.”
Oh well. Anyway…
Hello out there! Thank you for tolerating the slew of Last Unicorn posts as well as the intermittent (and seemingly ever growing) silence from me! You’re probably wondering why I’m addressing you all this way when I usually just post whatever…well, I have a question to pose:
I kind of want a little (controlled) wild fun here, so…What shall I post incessantly about next?! (Incessantly, in this instance, can be defined as “for the day”…)
Here’s some multiple choice to make it easy (and don’t worry, no grades here!):
READY…SET…GO! (and keep in mind - be careful what you wish for!)
This was my treat to myself after seeing The Last Unicorn on the big screen in Santa Cruz on April 6th, 2014 (and then standin in line forever) - the deluxe edition of The Last Unicorn graphic novel (that came out in 2010) signed by Peter S. Beagle himself! *squee*
Now all y’all know my first name!!!1!!!!111!1!1!11!!!!eleventy.
And if you want to know, the graphic novel is superb. The script is adapted right from the book (so Beagle’s own words) and the art is so lovely, bringing new life to old characters we know and love and keeping true to the meshing of Japanese and American art styles as the film did.
These editions (which are 9x13.5inches of beautiful full color) are out of print but they may come back for a limited time in the near future. The hardback “pocket-sized” edition is widely available however so go get one at your local comic shop (or local Amazon).
(I got my picture taken with a poster of this cover - I am still searching the event website for them, especially because I got one with Mr. Beagle too).
Hello! Thank your for your question! As you can see from my photograph, The Last Unicorn exists on DVD (and also on Blu-Ray as of quite recently)! I bought this edition back in 2009 or something like that. You can purchase online (Amazon is great), at electronics stores (i.e. Fry’s, Best Buy) or at your local department store (i.e. Target, Walmart) but I am in the US…so…online shopping is the probably best.
My mother and father also called me their princess :3 When my little sister and I were 3 and 4, every Friday night we would go out to eat Chinese food and right next door was a family owned movie rental place and EVERY WEEK this is the film we rented. As a child, the story was captivating, had an element of darkness that was beautiful, rang true, and felt more deep than any other fantasy movie I had experienced as a child. On April 6th of this year I sat in the theater for the first big screen showing since the release of the film crying my eyes out because this story runs so deep in my heart and all those things about it I loved as a child still held true.
If you do show this film to your daughter, I hope it touches her heart and soul as it did mine (and as it has for countless others). Good luck in your quest!
we capricorns gotta stick together, it’s been a very difficult week i understand, i got you buddy
(P.S. this IS relevant to my Last Unicorn/Peter S. Beagle post so there) CAPRICORNISssss
Today I’m taking myself out to see The Last Unicorn on the big screen in Santa Cruz (hence the overload of Last Unicorn posts) which is awesome in and of itself (this film hasn’t been shown in theaters since it’s release date in ‘82…or at least I’ve personally never seen it on the big screen) but Peter S. Beagle, author of the novel The Last Unicorn, shall be there to answer questions and sign books! Totally stoked. Let’s hope, in my excitement, that I do not forget to take pictures!
America - The Last Unicorn
