Why is all the Tea Gone??




So I've decided to join the bandwagon but with a lil random twist!! Alice in Wonderland is one of my all-time favorite stories & Disney Movies. I have my hopes up for this new one, so I really hope Tim Burton nails it. I loved Helena Bonham Carter in "Fight Club" & of course Johnny Depp in everything & Crispin Glover in "Back to the Future" so I tip my tea cup to them! What I'm wearing is actually my Alice in Wonderland costume my mother made me a few years ago. hehe. Yea I'm a bit obsessed.

The reason for this post is to bring up a few "Other" Alice adaptions that you all may not know or remember!!


For example Tom Petty's music video for "Don't come around here no more" is Alice in Wonderland themed. If you get a chance Watch it.


I'd never thought I'd see Tom Petty as the Mad Hatter. I think he did a pretty badass job!!

Secondly, do any of you remember the TV show that used to be on Disney called "Adventures in Wonderland"? Remember the white rabbit was on roller skates?? Twiddle Dee & Twiddle Dum had parachute pants?? I used to be addicted to it! Here's the intro! Maybe you'll remember?



Then of course there is Jefferson Airplane's song called "White Rabbit". It's one of my favorite songs!! Here are the lyrics and the video.



One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all
Go ask Alice
When she's ten feet tall

And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you're going to fall
Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call
Call Alice
When she was just small

When men on the chessboard
Get up and tell you where to go
And you've just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving slow
Go ask Alice
I think she'll know

When logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead
And the White Knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen's "off with her head!"
Remember what the dormouse said;
"FEED YOUR HEAD!" - Jefferson Airplane

Ohhhh I can't wait to see this new movie too!! Anyone remember any of this above stuff or have I lost my head? Maybe I drank out of too many bottles that said, "Drink me" on it? Oops! hehe. Til Tomorrow...

ehh... i'm skeptial of this sudden interest in alice in wonderland. nobody gave two craps about lewis carroll till tim burton decided to make another johnny depp vehicle for "marketable wackiness".

but then again, that's the same with lord of the rings, spiderman, batman, ironman, and virtually every piece of nerd culture. the mainstream is always appropriating.

that said, i DO remember the alice tv show! the queen of hearts was fabulous as fuck.

IVY▲ said...

wow i love this! haha great ears and i can't wait to see the movie!

Heather Taylor said...

Adventure in Wonderland, I remember that show! I do not remember the hilarious dancing guys in parachute pants though, thanks for that laugh, '90s nostalgia!

Secretia said...

White Rabbit, what a song, what lyrics, and what a performance!

Haha! Totally forgot about the Tom Petty version! I can't wait to see this one, too! It's going to be a good weekend! Cheers!

MelRoXx said...

I'm also looking forward to the movie. I haven't been up to much lately, specially when it comes to movies, and shopping and things like that that :P

Leah said...

Oh Melanie, you are so pretty in your Alice costume and I love how you emote for that shot. Can't wait to see the movie too.

I was trying to recall the Adventures in Wonderland but I really can't. Maybe this came later when I was no longer in my Disney phase. :-)

Have a great weekend and have fun my dear! xoxo

Meghan said...

Love your costume!!! It's so adorable!!!

Helen [In Elegance] said...

I read the book as a child and was hooked, I've loved Alice in Wonderland ever since. I've read some reviews of the film and Helena Bonham Carter and Johnny Depp are supposedly the stars of the film. Can't wait to see it myself, but am a little apprehensive as my hopes for the film are really high, I don't want to be disappointed.

Little Mrs Domestic said...

I too want to see this movie! And I do remember all the Alice things mentioned. I used to love watching that show as well. And loved the Tom Petty song too. :)

Pop Champagne said...

wooo! I'm seeing the movie this weekend I think, I heart Jhonny Depp!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

I can't wait to see this movie!! Omg omg omg.

And thank you for the sweet comments you have left on my blog recently. I have been so incredibly sad this week but it is friends like you who are getting me through it. xoxo

Cafe Fashionista said...

You see...I too am basically the biggest "Alice in Wonderland" fan you will ever meet. I have about ten copies of the book - all different editions, mind you - and as a child I watched "Adventures in Wonderland" 24/7. No joke. Here's to hoping that Tim Burton does the book justice - though I'm pretty sure he will.

And I'm in love with your Alice costume by the way - so cute!! :)

tess said...

white rabbit is the trippiest song ever haha

Christopher said...

Well you're rather adorable. I look forward to the movie too, I love Burton and Depp. Let me know how it is!

perfectionishuman said...

Left you something at my blog :)
