The other day I talked about this story to a friend of mine – and even only talking about it it gave me goosebumps and my eyes prickled… The story is one of the early works of the film director Tim Burton (mostly known for The Nightmare Before Christmas, Edward Scissorhands, Batman etc…). When I found it on a DVD ages ago, I was stunned about the story. I watched it again in English and loved it even more – the words rhyme so beautifully it could be flowing down your tongue like sweet melting ice cream… just beautiful!!! ❤ ❤ ❤
The story is about a boy called Vincent Maloy that fantasizes that he is Vincent Price, an American actor mainly playing in horror movies. The poem lines were written by Tim himself and actually read by the real actor Vincent Price, which makes the whole animation movie even better! Vincent Price really does have a sexy voice 😉
Now, some of you might find this a bit too melancholic or darkish for being featured in a Friday Flow issue, but somewhat, if you try to see it from Vincent’s eyes (Vincent – what a beautiful name…<3 ) you somewhat feel his pain and sadness as well and I can only say: my heart goes out to him… How many children or persons similar to him might be out there – followed by fears and chaos in their heads? Maybe I felt like sharing this today because, after a big storm, our weather changed from desert-like temperatures with sunrays hitting down on you like a hammer making room for a freshly cool breeze and grey skies. Besides: who doesn’t like to have goosebumps every once in a while 😉 ?
Tell me, did it also give you goose bumps? What else gives you goosebumps? I’d love to hear 🙂 !!!
