General topic / The Lost Boys script
« on: November 16, 2013, 07:55:11 PM »
Is The Lost Boys miniseries script still somewhere on the website? I knew where it was on the old version, but can't seem to find is this time around. Is it still available? And apologies if this has been mentioned before. Haven't been here in a real long while!
Peter Pan / Favorite Illustrastions
« on: November 15, 2013, 05:45:55 PM »
What are your favorite Peter Pan illustrations? Who is your favorite artist that's taken on the story?

I am reading "Peter and Wendy" to my kindergarten class, a chapter a day. They are loving it. I'm always looking for different illustrators, but so often find the drawings ghastly. I'm using a unique edition now by Raquel Jaramillo. She uses photos of children (and adults for the pirates and parents). They are quite lovely, a bit too tame and clean for the boy who hated mothers. But I especially appreciate that the illustrations are actually of children (so often I find Peter drawn as an adolescent). My kids like it best out of the copies we have. Her pictures are deep in color and very large. The pages are also so smooth for them to turn.

I personally like the ones by Francis Donkin Bedford. Especially his poetic capture of the characters' emotions. How about you all? I'd be curious to look up some.

Peter Pan / How does he grow at all?

Haven't been on this forum in ages. It's been fun catching up on the posts. Anyway, Peter Pan/Barrie, who has had a huge influence throughout my childhood/teens, is always creeping back into my adulthood with so many of my students wondering what happens after the night lights are lit, and who left 'mini-graves' with a single initial all about the cemetery. So the stories and adventures go on. But a question has kept popping up. Not by the kids, but eavesdropping grownups during story time:

If he runs away the day he's born, then how is he a boy when he meets Wendy?

My answer is that he run away to the Gardens for awhile and anyone can age there. Flying off to Neverland came later before he lost any of his first teeth and when he was "just Wendy's size" and thus stayed that age.

But I've actually heard other answers, and am curious in what you all have to say, probably better than my explanation.
Peter Pan / Peter Pan RIP
« on: June 10, 2010, 01:23:11 AM »

Found an article on Kula Shaker that comes with a free download of their new song "Peter Pan RIP" (inspired by Andrew's way on the story!). Lyrics simple with some fresh huanting blood. And the music is enchanting.

I heard Crispian Mills before via Anno's Africa videos, but was more swept away in those veiwings with the people all coming together and forgot about the music, the music, the music that made it all happen. So for me, this is kind of new along with exciting and waking to hear.

Give a listen. Enjoy.
