You Little Witch

athenawitch0928.jpg

Athena’s been pestering me for a number of days to make a picture of her as the Wicked Witch of the West, so here we are. I do have a version where she has green skin, incidentally, but for some reason this works better for me. I’m oddly amused she wants a picture of herself as the witch but not as, say, Dorothy; this says something about my little girl.

  1. John, I’d just like you to know that you are considered subversive enough by EMC Corp of Hopkinton MA to be blocked by the companies content filtering firewall. I used to be a regular visitor but have not been able visit in several weeks since they started blocking you. I finally had time at home to stop in and say.

  2. As someone who just acquired, at great effort, a copy of
    Lost Girls
    as a present for his wife, I’m officially, totally, and irrevocably Not Going There.

    Amazing just how far a concept can be stretched.

    Cat-bacon. Get’s ‘em every time.

  4. Margaret Hamilton as the WWW in the film is just too great for words. She’s one of the top three movie villains (along with Darth Vader and Blofeld).

    The Witch of the West in the book is more physically horrid (she has only one eye, but that can see great distances — shades of Sauron), equally sadistic, but is afraid of the dark.

    As a serious Baum fan I confess to having a serious beef with Gregory Maguire for not having done the reading before he wrote Wicked.

  5. Honestly, knowing the little I know about your daughter, and knowing what I know about her dad, I’m not that surprised. That, or maybe she just had too much schadenfreude pie.

  7. I’ve just been playing with Photoshop for years is all. And I’m not nearly as good with it as all sorts of graphic designers I could name.

    Likewise, I am blocked at work from visiting John’s site for the same reason. The blanket blocking of LJ by my place of employment is understandable, but it seems that John’s site is subversive enough that, even though it stands alone, that its lumped in as inappropriate.

  10. It’s interesting to be singled out by filtering software. I wonder what the excuse is.

    I suspect it’s because I taped bacon to a cat. And you just don’t do that.

  11. My library system filters anything on blogspot as ‘adult material’ – including Writers Beware etc.

    The more I see of filtering, the less I like it. I don’t think that kids who access flickr will be permanently scarred for life…

  12. Face it, the Wicked Witch had all the best lines, man.

    Or, maybe, with Halloween coming up, she is in the mind of witches, and Edith Hamilton is the best representative she knows?
