My conversation with the evil stepmother at Disney
Out of print movie, now available on "Sinlesslinks****."
Inspired by the most beloved of fables, the animated feature HAPPILY NÃEVER AFTER is a satirical retelling of the classic story of Cinderella.
Once upon a time in Fairy Tale Land, the age-old balance between good and evil has been thrown out of whack. Frieda, CinderellaÃs power-mad stepmother (voiced by Sigourney Weaver), has formed an unholy alliance of evil to take on the good guys. With her own fairy tale spinning wildly out of control, Cinderella (a/k/a Ella Ã± voiced by Sarah Michelle Gellar) is forced to shed her damsel-in-distress trappings in order to seize control of her own destiny and lead the resistance without her Prince Charming (Patrick Warburton).
In a world of happy endings gone wrong, the race for control of the kingdom is on, with the fate of the venerable storyline 'Happily N'Ever After' hanging in the balance.
An alliance of evil-doers, led by Frieda, looks to take over Fairy Tale Land. But when Ella realizes her stepmother is out to ruin her storybook existence, she takes a dramatic turn and blossoms into the leader of the resistance effort.

The March to Stop Executions has been held each October since 2000 in cooperation with several Texas and national anti-death penalty organizations, including Texas Moratorium Network, the Austin chapter of the Campaign to End the Death Penalty, the Texas Death Penalty Abolition Movement, Texas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty and Texas Students Against the Death Penalty.
The first march was called the "March on the Mansion" and was held on October 15, 2000. The second and third marches were called "March for a Moratorium" and were held on October 27, 2001 and October 12, 2002. In 2003, the march name changed to "March to Stop Executions". Clarence Brandley, who had been exonerated and released from death row in 1990 after spending nine years there, spoke at the 2003 march, saying "I was always wishing and hoping that someone would just look at the evidence and the facts, because the evidence was clear that I did not commit the crime." The "5th Annual March to Stop Executions" was on October 30, 2004. The "6th Annual March to Stop Executions" was held October 29, 2005 in conjunction with the 2005 National Conference of the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, which came to Austin at the invitation of the march organizers.
The "7th Annual March to Stop Executions", which was sponsored by a record number of 50 organizations was held October 28, 2006 and included family members of Carlos De Luna and Cameron Todd Willingham, who both had been the subject of separate investigations by The Chicago Tribune that concluded they were probably innocent people executed by Texas. Standing outside the gates of the Texas Governor's Mansion with hundreds of supporters, the families of Willingham and De Luna delivered separate letters to Governor Perry asking him to stop executions and investigate the cases of Willingham and De Luna to determine if they were wrongfully executed. After DPS troopers refused to take the letters, Mary Arredondo, sister of Carlos De Luna, and Eugenia Willingham, stepmother of Todd, dropped them through the gate of the governor's mansion and left them lying on the walkway leading to the main door.

What if a fairytale princess and and a teenage witch would swap bodies?
Or more specifically; what if there is an infinite amount of parallel universes,
and two individuals from those universes dying simultaneously is a way to transfer their minds to each other's body,
from one world into the other?
Hermione is unhappy with her life as it is.
She has a crush on Draco that is doomed to result in disappointment.
Hell; having conversations with him ended in disappointment, and that was before he even knew her true feelings for him!
After he found out about them he was just about nice enough to make her believe things could be all right, that they could be comfortable together, but just when she was in for the next step (that was nothing more than a heart-to-heart), he would steer the conversation to the awkward and uncomfortable topics, such as the length of her teeth, her bushy hair, -why- her parents were divorcing, how disgusting it was she wasn't pure of blood and on top of that her lack of chest size.
Harry and Ron resented her for caring for Draco and wanting to make her his, and argued about him and the things he said so often there was barely time for school work.
Now her mind was stressed by these social disappointments so severely she was losing control of it.
And then Draco had... She had asked him... about the Ball... The Yule Ball, that would be about a month from now... She asked him... "If... Maybe... You er... We could... Do you have a... d-date yet..?"
He didn't say 'yes'... He didn't say 'no', either...
He smiled. Hermione smiled back at him, relieved as she could possibly be with all the madness and hurt in her life, thankful for him smiling, and thankful for...
Wait... His smile broadened... 'thickened'... his face seemed to split open he smiled so broadly... and then... "Hah!"
Hah? What-? He laughed. He laughed at her, right in her face. Pansy Parkinson and Daphne Greengrass appeared at either side of him, and joined him. Laughing.
Hermione tried to pierce his gaze, tried to read him, find a trace of something humane, something like guilt, or sympathy, but there was none.
Then she gave up and walked away.
Dreams once frailed now torn and emotions once burst were too shattered to find words nor tears.
The only thing she could truly think of without being distracted, the thing that made her smile after crying before sleeping that night, where she could find equanimity, out of reach in any other part of her life, was suicide.
Meanwhile, there was a lovely young woman named Cinderella.
Her father died, leaving her with her cold-hearted stepmother and two stepsisters who cared for nothing but themselves and their stupid cat.
The family fortune was spent on the best of the best for Drusilla and Anastasia, Cinderella's stepsisters, but left nothing more than worn out clothes for Cindy herself.
It got to the point where they fired the house holding staff and had her do all the work!
One day she was so sick and tired of it... Cinderella had spent the entire day working on a dress for Drusilla, and when she came in to check on the progress, she decided Cinderella messed it up because the colour was wrong.
But... Drusilla was the one who provided the material for the dress in the first place; how was it Cindy's fault?
Stepmama and Drusilla decided the consequences would be merely verbal. So they were.
They were most generous with them, too; Cindy got nothing but words.
Words when she woke up, words when she did her chores, words when serving the others breakfast, lunch and dinner and words when she went to bed, starving and miserable as ever.
Cindy refused to let them break her.
Her roaring stomach was her lullaby, her dry throat was her silent wakeup call.
And even though her friends the mice tried hard to feed her with crumbles, in less than a week Cindy was over.
Both girls thought they were having a lucid dream...
Neither knew the fairy tale they read so much about was now their reality.
Nor did either of them know they were living on borrowed time...

Disney's adaptation of the beloved fairy tale became a classic in its own right, thanks to some memorable tunes (including "A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes," "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo," and the title song) and some endearingly cute comic relief. We all know the story--the wicked stepmother and stepsisters simply won't have it, this uppity Cinderella thinking she's going to a ball designed to find the handsome prince an appropriate sweetheart, but perseverance, animal buddies, and a well-timed entrance by a fairy godmother make sure things turn out all right. There are a few striking sequences of pure animation--for example, Cinderella is reflected in bubbles drifting through the air--and the design is rich and evocative throughout. It's a simple story padded here agreeably with comic business, particularly Cinderella's rodent pals (dressed up conspicuously like the dwarf sidekicks of another famous Disney heroine) and their misadventures with a wretched cat named Lucifer. There's also much harrumphing and exposition spouting by the King and the Grand Duke. It's a much simpler and more graceful work than the more frenetically paced animated films of today, which makes it simultaneously quaint and highly gratifying. --David Kronke
