Wonderland

I've found some internet so posting might pick up.

I've been feeling inspired by the whole idea of Alice in Wonderland lately, having spent the last two and a half weeks in my own personal Wonderland. I went to the British Library the other day to see their collection of old manuscripts and had to catch my breath when I came upon Charles Dodgson's original copy of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland complete with the author's own illustrations over the text and in the margins. A couple of days later I was in Absolute Vintage, and Gwen Stefani's "What You Waiting For?" came on. I hadn't heard it in years, but it has definitely got to be one of my favorite music videos of all time. The Alice theme is presented so well, and Gwen Stefani looks flawless. I remember watching this video in high school and thinking that she was so incredibly badass. Then today I came across the first teaser trailer for Tim Burton's version of the story, which it set to come out March 5, 2010. Watch it here in high definition. It's going to be amazing.
