It’s not everyday you get to see a black man get on stage at a memorial, and begin his memorable tale by ragging on Walt Disney’s ass. And he’s the President of the NAACP in Lane County!!!!
“This is too good to be true! I must give my magic camera a name. How about ‘The Mighty Jinn? Only in Eugene!”
In my defense of the Alleybelle Incident, I suggested I owned a magic camera that made atutomatic movies wherever I pointed it. The Mighty Jinn shot the opening of my Beatnik Movie! It was all I could do to not stand up, and say;
“Why are you campaigning for Trump? Fifty million Americans love Walt Disney. Think ‘Swing Voters! Who cares if you got the goods on Walt?”
Eric Richardson then gave us his Racial Resumé, why he should wear Kenny’s Crown. I wanted to shout’
“The King is dead! Long live the King!”
But I looked at Marilyn. She was drained. Her battery was on red. When I came to the stage before Eric got on his soap box, I heard;
“Oh no! What now?”
“Not this guy. Please let there be a merciful God in heaven!”
Eric had his base in hand, and said he was going to play a tune that has no name. I had to suggest one.
“Forever searching for the truth, will keep you forever young!”
Eric had to close his eyes in order to erase the input of the big white guy that looks like Santa Claus. Here is my other suggestion – I oppressed!
“How about ‘The Walt Disney Rag’.
Eric had gone into a trance when he hit the stage. He talked about his mixed race parents involvement in the arts. They had met Kenny, who changed their and their son’s lives. There was a transference of black radical thinking, that ended the reign of the Hippie Vietnam War Movement. He suggested white people haven’t been revelent, hence. After you do in their false god, they are done! Eric said “farewell” to my generation, then closed with;
“All music comes from Africa!”
“Cut! Take five. There’s a lunch wagon parked out on Broadway! When you come back, we’ll shoot Richardson’s infamous “poor boob” silique.”
“In fact, Tolkien mostly hated Disney’s creations, and he made these feelings very clear. Snow White debuted only months after The Hobbit’s publication in 1937. As it happened, Tolkien went to see the film with literary friend and sometime rival C.S. Lewis. Neither liked it very much. In a 1939 letter, Lewis granted that “the terrifying bits were good, and the animals really most moving.” But he also called Disney a “poor boob” and lamented “What might not have come of it if this man had been educated—or even brought up in a decent society?”
This would make a great Russian meme, that will pull 10,000 swing-voters into the Trump camp.
“The NAACP wants to shut down Disney World because Walt was paid by Hitler to make white people look good, when most people know they are not.”
On the EMX heading for Springfield, I began to compose a letter to Eric, and the Mayor of Eugene. I am going to demand the three names that Eric foisted on his fellow citizens, be put in suspense, and allow a campaign to take place to see what names the voters like best. I want this on the ballot, because, this is part of the huge culture warfare going on – that is destroying America! I want to get on stage – and debate Eric Richardson! I want to challenge his claims. He has gotten away with using Music as a secret political weapon, in a very sneaky way. I will write the heads of the NAACP. Music is the universal glue that brings people together, and creates lasting bonds. I heard speakers at the Jazz Station attest to this.
Here is a post about how Tolkien hated Walt Disney – too – because he debased the Folk Legends of THE WHITIST PEOPLE THAT EVER LIVED! Did the Norse People play musical instruments – and dance native dances?
I am launching my campaign – today! I will restore Epiphany Day if I am elected the next Republican President of the United States. I changed my party as part of the Bohemian Bank Kenny Reed, Rick Cobian, and myself, founded. Rick worked at Disney studios, and told me he wants to be bigger than Walt. He picked my brain for months on how – he could suceed. Marilyn suggested we have a chit-chat. I blew my partners mind with my rundown on the name Rosamond, that means ‘The Rose of the World’.
“Rosamond is the most architype name in the Western World. Disney was the master of architypes. These Fairly Tales are rooted in European Legends. They were preserved by Druids who went underground during the Roman occupation. Many slaves were taken. The Roman’s had a special priesthood that were experts at altering the original cosmology, putting their Sages in power, to preach pro-Roman propaganda, and…
“What’s so bad about slavery?”
I saw $$$$$$$$$igns in Cobian’s eyes. What get’s me about Eric, he uses Gospel Music as HIS final permission for HIS history grab. The Jews wrote the Bible, not Africans. As a theologian, I find much archetypal Soul Music, and heartfelt Biblical suffering in order to find, and know, the truth!
When I come on stage, my people will play – this song! There’s not an ounce of African blood in the music of Manfred Mann. White Men, are very capable of carrying God’s message – from the source! Eric, the usurper, declares we old Beatniks got to go through him….from now on! He says it is no longer our country. Well, we live in a democracy. I demand Mr. Richardson debate me! Tis the season!
I just woke up from my Old Man Nap – with another epiphany! We all need to be more generous and make concessions in our forever arguments. At the Jazz Station I sat next to a woman who used to take her young sons to Jazz and Poetry at the Granary. Her son has just memorialized the generosity of Kenny Reed who took the time to teach. I asked her if she remembered Jason (the owner) passing out paper and Crayola for the kids – and all. She said she did remember. I asked her if this would be something she would like to see again.
I talked to an editor at KVAL about coming to the Jazz Station and doing a report on Kenny. He said their reporter was committed to the lighting of Christmas Tree lights. We talked for about fifteen minutes. He asked me to send him some pics and a report. He said they do not do memorials, because many will ask why they don’t get one.
Eric! Let’s work on a happy and magical news report. Let’s be generous to the children, who can’t vote, or, comprehend why Walt is the Emperor of White Devils. Disney was born on December 5th. the time cities turn on their Saint Nick lights. Here are the names that came to me – in a dream!
Tinkerbelle Lane. Mermaid Way. Cinderella Street.
I see children of all races in costume. I see a parade down Tinkerbelle Lane. I see lights and magic! I see Disney helping with the funding. I see you and I holding shovels and breaking ground. I see trollies bringing UofO students along the river to………………….?
How about…..River Dance of the Magical Elves?
The Royal Janitor has morphed into a Tinkerbelle like cartoon – for adults! I am incorporating Tolkien, Harry Potter, James Bond, and the Hippie Movement to make a truly Magical Book and Movie. Some people have compared me to Walt Disney. I have plans in the wing to create a Creative Hollywood Dynastic Cosmology around my kindred, Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor, and, the Getty family who are sick of how they are depicted in movies. Liz has gotten bad press. What the world needs is a Secular Union of Creative People who will be more than Goodwill Ambassadors. We need to take our people off the two-dimensional silver-screen and have them walk about the earth, altering it in beautiful and constructive ways.
Trump is Bad Disney, who hates the earth and is backed by co-terrorist who pray for the Great Tribulation and Rapture, that will not happen as John Darby described. Something like the Rapture will occur at the end of my movie. I call it ‘The Gathering’ that is based upon scientific solutions to establish God’s Kingdom here on earth without a billion people, and millions of children, perishing via a hideous death. Why?
Jim Carry is rendering cartoons to counter the one facebook is still finding, drawn by fake Trolls in Russia. The Royal Janitor aims to help destroy Russian Trolls, and attract Russians that being harassed and oppressed by the Dark Putin. Tolkien’s character should be employed to this end, also.
Tolkien went to see Disney’s Snow White, and had trouble with the illustration. The work of Eyvind Earle, hung in the Rosamond Gallery in Carmel. I suggest my kin, Elizabeth Rosemond be employed as a figure head in the New Renaissance I see on the horizon. Snow White Looks like Liz when she was young.
In fact, Tolkien mostly hated Disney’s creations, and he made these feelings very clear. Snow White debuted only months after The Hobbit’s publication in 1937. As it happened, Tolkien went to see the film with literary friend and sometime rival C.S. Lewis. Neither liked it very much. In a 1939 letter, Lewis granted that “the terrifying bits were good, and the animals really most moving.” But he also called Disney a “poor boob” and lamented “What might not have come of it if this man had been educated—or even brought up in a decent society?”
Tolkien, notes Atlas Obscura, “found Snow White lovely, but otherwise wasn’t pleased with the dwarves. To both Tolkien and Lewis, it seemed, Disney’s dwarves were a gross oversimplification of a concept they held as precious”—the concept, that is, of fairy stories. Some might brush away their opinions as two Oxford dons gazing down their noses at American mass entertainment. As Tolkien scholar Trish Lambert puts it, “I think it grated on them that he [Disney] was commercializing something that they considered almost sacrosanct.”
“Indeed,” writes Steven D. Greydanus at the National Catholic Register, “it would be impossible to imagine” these two authors “being anything but appalled by Disney’s silly dwarfs, with their slapstick humor, nursery-moniker names, and singsong musical numbers.” One might counter that Tolkien’s dwarves (as he insists on pluralizing the word), also have funny names (derived, however, from Old Norse) and also break into song. But he takes pains to separate his dwarves from the common run of children’s story dwarfs.
Tolkien would later express his reverence for fairy tales in a scholarly 1947 essay titled “On Fairy Stories,” in which he attempts to define the genre, parsing its differences from other types of marvelous fiction, and writing with awe, “the realm of fairy story is wide and deep and high.” These are stories to be taken seriously, not dumbed-down and infantilized as he believed they had been. “The association of children and fairy-stories,” he writes, “is an accident of our domestic history.”
Tolkien wrote The Hobbit for young people, but he did not write it as a “children’s book.” Nothing in the book panders, not the language, nor the complex characterization, nor the grown-up themes. Disney’s works, on the other hand, represented to Tolkien a cheapening of ancient cultural artifacts, and he seemed to think that Disney’s approach to films for children was especially condescending and cynical.
He described Disney’s work on the whole as “vulgar” and the man himself, in a 1964 letter, as “simply a cheat,” who is “hopelessly corrupted” by profit-seeking (though he admits he is “not innocent of the profit-motive” himself).
…I recognize his talent, but it has always seemed to me hopelessly corrupted. Though in most of the ‘pictures’ proceeding from his studios there are admirable or charming passages, the effect of all of them is to me disgusting. Some have given me nausea…
This explication of Tolkien’s dislike for Disney goes beyond mere gossip to an important practical upshot: Tolkien would not allow any of his works to be given the Walt Disney treatment. While his publisher approached the studios about a Lord of the Rings adaptation (they were turned down at the time), most scholars think this happened without the author’s knowledge, which seems a safe assumption to say the least.
Tolkien’s long history of expressing negative opinions about Disney led to his later forbidding, “as long as it was possible,” any of his works to be produced “by the Disney studios (for all whose works I have a heartfelt loathing).” Astute readers of Tolkien know his serious intent in even the most comic of his characters and situations. Or as Vintage News’ Martin Chalakoski writes, “there is not a speck of Disney in any of those pages.”
