The Importance of the Classic Fairy Tale

Yesterday I read an article that I stumbled onto put forth by Vanity Fair, about how Disney is killing off the Fairy Tale romance genre that it helped to create. ( You can read that here.) We've seen things trending in this direction for a while with more of a focus on some of the… Continue reading The Importance of the Classic Fairy Tale

The Latest Fashion.

  "For an artist virtue can be deadly. The urge toward respectability and maturity can be stultifying even fatal. We strive to be good, to be nice, to be of service, of the world.
