It seems they've made a movie out of one of my favorite short stories of all time.

http://imdb.com/title/tt0768212/

I'm hoping very, very hard that they don't do to it what they did to The Sound of Thunder.

There seems to be an advance showing this sunday. Anyone want to go?

'Twas Brillig...

In highschool we sang a song that used that poem as its lyrics. It was so much fun!

I think I might have the sheet music somewhere at my mom's house still (yes, I stole sheet music all the time in HS...:P )

If I wasn't flying out to SF on Sunday I would totally go with you. Let us know how it is.

If I recall, the line was from The Hunting of the Snark?

The Lewis Padget short story is named for the line from the poem and that's what's being made into a film. It's a remarkable story. If you want, I'll email you a copy of it. It's about toys from the future that educate children until they get incomprehensibly intelligent and vanish in the 28th dimension or somesuch place. :)

Ahhh...I didn't click through.

I was thinking of Jabberywocky.

Regardless, it sounds interesting. :) Hopefully, they did well with the adaptation.

So it's worth seeing then? i was writing it off as a bad kids movie, but if you're a fan of the original story...

Also, can you email me a copy as well? would love to check it out.

It was really dumbed down and they took out alot of the cool stuff. They also gave it an ET Saved the World sort of plot which was unfortunate. Still and all, it wasn't unpleasant to watch. The story was much better.

Very slowly - I could only get smooth play if I really dumbed it down, but it ran and could probably be useful on a network game.

I have decided that I will use entry music next time we have a talent show at school, and this time I will take the stage to do a few minutes of comedy the graders won't even get (but the teachers will love, I hope) with "Raise a Little Hell".
