A Movie From Every Year Of My Life - 1989

A Movie From Every Year Of My Life 

1989

The Little Mermaid






This is more nostalgia for me than anything else. I don't like that Ariel falls for the first human she sets her big beautiful eyes on but she's supposed to be a teen right? A fangirl of humanity? So it works as a pairing for me if I check my brain at the door and go with the songs and just enjoy the movie... and surely no female can watch this and not burst into song especially when you hear "Look at this stuff... isnt it neat?"




Is me writing that its more nostalgia than anything else doing the movie short? I guess I'd have to go back and ask child me how good it was...

Adult me - Well lets hop in a TARDIS and go see child me, sounds like fun?
Vwrrop Vwrrop Vwrrop Vwrrop
Child me - Hey a TARDIS.. cooooool
Adult me - Hey me, I'm writing a review for my blog, your blog...
Child me - What's a-
Adult me - Pretend its homework, it doesn't matter.
Child me - I don't wanna do homework, can't I just watch the X-Files instead?
Adult me - Sure I'll just go get the DVDs
Child me - What are DVDs?
Adult me - Oh brother!
Child me - Whoa we get a brother?
Adult me - No, a sister. Anyways what do you think of 'The Little Mermaid'?
Child me - It's lovely, but I wouldn't know right now cause our mother gave away the video to a friend. Who does that?
Adult me - Oh right, I suppressed that memory. Not cool. Don't worry mini-me, you buy it again on VHS and then again on DVD and you will buy it on Blu-ray.
Child me - Why do you need it that many times?
Adult me - I don't know, I came here to ask you why I would do that and love the movie so much.
Child me - Maybe you're yearning for your lost childhood and want to buy it many times to make up for the one time our mother gave it away.
Adult me - Perhaps.
Child me - How've you got a TARDIS anyways?
Adult me - I don't, this, me, you are all words in a blog that the physical form of me is writing right now whilst watching 'The Maltese Falcon'
Child me - That sounds cool.
Adult me - You wouldn't like it yet, you'll first see it when your in a class at uni, you still won't appreciate it then because you're a little tipsy from pints at lunch.
Child me - Eurgh drink is bad.
Adult me - Yeah you think that now too. So the movie, for the sake of me coming all the way here in this construct.. what did you think of it?
Child me - The end makes me feel sad, happy endings to movies do, and I don't know why. The disney logo itself already means my childhood to me, some ominous feeling that its all slipping by, time and I wanna grasp it and never let it go... and then she gave away the movie, she did the same with 'A Christmas Story'
Adult me - It's ok, you've got it on DVD now and watch it every Christmas with your sister.
Child me - Cool, if I can still love movies, I can still love 'A Little Mermaid' all those, your, years later then that's awesome. I'm glad you, we, still get to experience childhood through a movie. I guess the movie is the TARDIS huh?
