L'esprit de L'escalier
Kay Nielsen did the artwork for the Ava Maria sequence in Fantasia, which is one of my favorite moments in the Disney Canon.
The book Michial recommends for increasing your knowledge and appreciation of classical music.
Once again my knowledge of Greek and Roman mythology is informed mostly by Rick Riordan's fun, entertaining, and modern retellings. I wonder if the Greeks and Romans would find this version of Dionysus/Bacchus more or less familiar than the one portrayed in Fantasia?
Sure Michial says not to buy it and that he hates it - but Stravinsky was also busy selling the rights for Renard, Fireworks, and The Firebird to Walt Disney as he panned Fantasia - so, you know, words aren't everything. As far as I'm concerned, it is THE book on John Updike.
Who knew that Marx was familiar enough with Fantasia to reference the Sorcerer's Apprentice in his book? I'm not saying Marx was a time traveler, but I'm not not saying it either.
It's not a hagiography. Sorry I butchered your name Mr. Neal Gabler.
