Sleeping Dragon

Awake Dragon…

Your Prince Comes for you

Who Are you to Curse My Love…

I Drag My Sword against This Callous Ground

Sparking Silver…

My Garb of Chains

Atop The Mountain…

You’ll Meet Your Doom…

My Bride I’ll Kiss…

They’ll Call Me Groom

A Morning With Tchaikovsky

Awaken Light Spirit… I Becon Thee

Whilst preparing to Write my 31st Blog Post, Fear of Writing Success, which I will Write here in a bit, I tossed on my Pandora Station, Wolfgang Amadeus as I named it, which is basically my Classical Music Station. As I noted in my In Moments of Darkness – Puccini Post, my Three Favorite Composers are Mozart, Puccini and Tchaikovsky. Anyway, like I say, as I was preparing to Write my Next Blog Post, this Song came on and Whammed me. Tchaikovky’s Violin Concerto in D Major, OP 35. I don’t know that I’ve ever heard it, though part of it almost sounds Familiar, like someone had based a part of a Film Musical Score on it either Consciously, or Unconsciously. Well, here’s the Piece, make sure you listen until at least the 6th Minute 11th-12th Second of this Video. It is Heroic, and Magnificent. Enjoy

The Version I heard on Pandora was from the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. The Version Above is Kyung-Wha Chung the 1st Movement, Part 1 of 2.

May 7th 1840-November 6th 1893

Alright, back to Work/Writing, Thanks for Sharing the Moment


Walt Disney – Through My Eyes

Posted in Dreams, Inspiration, Movies, Walt Disney with tags , , , , , on August 28, 2011 by darkjade68

While growing up I had three primary Heroes, Walt Disney (The Man), Bruce Lee and Captain America. Following closely behind were George Lucas, and Gary Gygax. I touch briefly on George Lucas on this post I did Star Wars – DarkJade’s First Look. I hope to write more about each of my other four heroes at a later time… But now for Walt Disney.

Walt Disney

As a child I remember going to see The Jungle Book, it must have been the 1978 re-release (Original Release 1967). I loved it, especially Shere Khan whose voice was portrayed by an actor by the name of George Sanders (All About Eve).

Shere Khan - The Jungle Book

Perhaps I’ve always been drawn to villain’s in story’s. Or maybe just good villain’s, which he was. And then Robin Hood which was re-released in 1982 (Original Release 1973 ).

Robin Hood - Walt Disney

I liked Robin in this one, but also liked the villain’s

Mommy... (Prince John)

Prince John with the voice of Peter Ustinov

Sssssssss... (Sir Hiss)

…and Sir Hiss (Didn’t know that was his name, lol). Voice portrayed by Terry Thomas.

I guess we must have seen Bambi in it’s 1975 re-release (Originally Released in 1942),


and Fantasia in it’s 1977 or 1982 re-release (Originally Released in 1940)

Mickey - Fantasia

There was Lady and the Tramp, which we must have seen in 1980 (Originally Released in 1962)

Spaghetti Scene - Lady and the Tramp

…and the Aristocrats we must have also seen in 1980 (Originally Released in 1970)

O'malley and Duchess - The Aristocats

I actually had a huge O’malley Stuffed Animal I had gotten from Disneyland… Disneyland

Lets talk about Disneyland for a minute

Disneyland at Night

No place in the world like it (Ok Disney World in Florida is a tad similar). Likely the most Creatively Imp-active Place I’ve ever experienced. We went there a whole lot when I was a kid growing up in Southern California.

Truth is it’s hard to put into words what Walt Disney has meant to me, so I shall continue to let the images speak for themselves, with my comments close by… Enjoy

Battle to the Death - Prince Phillip & Maleficent - Sleeping Beauty

Talk about a Great Villain, Sleeping Beauty was my favorite Walt Disney Film. I saw it in 1979 (Originally Released in 1959)

Watching TV - 101 Dalmations

101 Dalmations… Most likely seen in 1979 (Originally Released 1969)

The Lion King

Amazing… Walt’s Dream lives on in The Lion King Released in 1994

Meet the Genie - Aladin

I’ve never laughed that hard in my life during a movie, then when the Genie (Voice by Robin Williams) came out of the lamp in Disney’s Aladin. That scene was hilarious. Released in 1992.
