New Tangled Featurette from Disney

Disney has just released a featurette about Tangled (the Rapunzel movie) due out in November. I am embedding it below:

The slightly relieving part is that Rapunzel does appear to be the main focus more than she appears in the first trailer. And the movie is very lush in appearance.

And after seeing all of these images of Rapunzel's long hair, I wonder how many little girls are going to beg to let their hair grow this winter...

Joseph Campbell on Power of Myth With Bill Moyers on DVD

Joseph Campbell on Power of Myth With Bill Moyers

Joseph Campbell on Power of Myth With Bill Moyers will be released on DVD on September 21st.  This is an expanded set of a long out-of-print series.  It is especially of interest to those interested in mythology.

From the press release:

Joseph Campbell and the Power of Myth with Bill Moyers: The seminal PBS series on world mythology! "Dazzling and still potently relevant" - San Francisco Chronicle. "Fascinating" - The New York Times. "Compelling" - The Wall Street Journal. "Stirring and elevating" - Los Angeles Times.

These stimulating conversations between inspirational scholar Joseph Campbell and veteran journalist Bill Moyers created a national sensation when they first aired on public television. In lively, expansive dialogues, the two men discuss how myths hold the key to understanding human experience. They may vary superficially from culture to culture, but at their deepest level they all reveal the path to self-fulfillment, social integration, and ultimately, transcendence.

Joseph Campbell taught for nearly 40 years at Sarah Lawrence College; he authored and edited scores of books and inspired generations of scholars and artists. Journalist Bill Moyers distinguished himself at Newsday, NBC, CBS, and PBS; his many honors include lifetime achievement Emmy and Peabody awards. Join Campbell and Moyers as they touch on topics as diverse as world religions, marriage, the virgin birth, and pop culture. Filmed at George Lucas's Skywalker Ranch and New York's American Museum of Natural History, this series fires the imagination and the intellect. NOTE: Contains nudity and violent images
The set has the original series with these episodes:

Episode 1: The Hero's Adventure
Whether it's Buddha, Moses, Jesus, or the Knights of the Round Table, the heroes in every mythic tradition undertake the same archetypal journey from departure through fulfillment and return.

Episode 2: The Message of the Myth
At their deepest level, myths teach us how to live-with ourselves, with others, and with the mystery at the heart of life.

Episode 3: The First Storytellers
All of our culture's rituals have their roots in the myths of ancient hunters, who told stories and performed rituals to bring their lives into harmony with nature.

Episode 4: Sacrifice and Bliss
Like a seed that dies only to be reborn, the archetypal hero must undergo the death of the ego to achieve new life and the revelation of bliss.

Episode 5: Love and the Goddess
From kama to agape to courtly romance, Campbell explores the mythology of love and the role of the female as the giver of life and form.

Episode 6: Masks of Eternity
All cultures create "masks"-names and images for God-to serve as metaphors for inexpressible transcendence, the being beyond all being and the idea beyond all thought.

There is also a lot of bonus material, some of it supposedly released for the first time--I haven't confirmed that and don't have a complete list. Although this isn't the first time this has been released on DVD, it has been out of print for a while and this new version appears to be bigger and better than the previous release.

Whether or not you agree with everything Joseph Campbell wrote or said, it is important to know and understand his work since it is referenced so often.

New Book: The Grimm Reader: The Classic Tales of the Brothers Grimm by Maria Tatar

The Grimm Reader: The Classic Tales of the Brothers Grimm

A few weeks ago I wrote a lengthy entry, Reading Grimms; or, Picking an English Translation, Etc., in which I mentioned the upcoming The Grimm Reader: The Classic Tales of the Brothers Grimm by Maria Tatar.  It is now available on Amazon for ordering--although I see that it is already out of stock temporarily--although  the official release is August.  This is a new translation of 40 Grimms tales.  I haen't seen a copy yet, so I don't know how much introductory or extra materials there are beyond an introduction by A. S. Byatt.

Here's the publisher's description:

Forty of the most famous and celebrated stories from the Brothers Grimm translated and edited by a leading professor of folklore.

Even after two hundred years, the tales collected by the Brothers Grimm remain among our most powerful stories. Their scenes of unsparing savagery and jaw-dropping beauty remind us that fairy tales, in all their simplicity, have the power to change us. With some of the most famous stories in world literature, including “Cinderella,” “Little Red Riding Hood,” “Hansel and Gretel,” “Snow White,” as well as some less well known stories like “The Seven Ravens,” this definitive collection promises to entrance readers with the strange and wonderful world of the Brothers Grimm.

Maria Tatar’s engaging preface provides readers with the historical and cultural context to understand what these stories meant and their contemporary resonance. Fans of all ages will be drawn to this elegant and accessible collection of stories that have cast their magical spell over children and adults alike for generations.

I know this will be an automatic buy for many libraries and some readers--Tatar's name is enough to insure that--but it also promises to be a new translation worthy of comparison to the other best ones. (See that previous blog entry I mentioned above.)  I have gained a much great understanding and respect for translators this past year after working through several for my upcoming Sleeping Beauties--I have translated roughly 20 tales for that collection.  Tatar approached the project as both an expert on German and the Grimms, so I expect this to be an excellent offering, especially considering her previous books.

Clay Aiken-Ruben Studdard Show Rocks Florida

MOCK REMATCH - The singers open the Timeless Tour show in an American Idol duel of vocals and antics. At one point, Clay sits on Ruben, only to be royally dumped on floor. Photo by Invisible926.

Memorable Vocals, Comic Stylings

Florida 3-fer Ends on High Note

Clay Aiken, Ruben Studdard, & Company saved the best till last as the final show of the Florida 3-fer is being hailed by fans as the funniest, most energetic, musically entertaining, and technically tight yet.

On top of that, the audience, filled with both men and women, enjoyed lots of interaction with the charismatic performers and showed them with much appreciative applause.

Outback of Clay Aiken Fans posted a brief report following Monday's Clearwater performance:

There have been a lot of men at all three Florida shows -- more than I have ever seen. Of course, the front is chock full of Claymates, but there are lots of couples. At two of the shows, I had two young guys sitting beside me. Never had that happen before.

That golden voice was out of this world. Clay can dance, and "Rev. Ruben" didn't have anything to do with it. He's got soul, y'all; this is funky dancing. I can't wait for everyone to see the show!

Another fan, kbdm, reported to the Clayboard that the Aiken-Studdard duo had the audience from the first note to the last.

People were on their feet, dancing, singing, laughing the entire show; and the guys kept cranking it up each time they looked at the audience to measure our reactions. Fantastic show!

Annie2053 from Clayversity, who sat 18 rows from the stage, posted that she and her husband loved the show:
My husband was applauding after songs before I was and laughing his face off. We attend a lot of these types of concerts at Ruth Eckerd Hall, so we can compare reactions of audiences from other shows. This is one of the more enthusiastic and energetic shows we've seen here.

Canuck2010, who attended all three Florida shows, reported to Clayversity:
Clay was in top form last night, great voice, comic timing that would be the envy of any comedian out there. All the banter bits are becoming second nature, and the ad-libbing is hysterical. Ruben, Casey and Quiana all have incredibly powerful voices as well.

The difference in last night's show from the first two in Florida was the energy. I think we owe a lot of that to Ruben since he basically said, "If you're having fun, show it." He encouraged the crowd to get up and dance -- or rather he ordered us to.

I do believe it's my favorite tour ever. Ever! All I could think of to compare it to was Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis -- but better!

Photos by Deemer, 1-2, and Invisible926, 3-16, provide glimpses of Monday's Clearwater Concert:
