I don't like Alice in wonderland references. I'm 21, by this point I have heard way too many for them to count as funny or even clever. This happens a lot whenever people are introduced to me. One time I replied; ‘Wow I haven’t heard that one before.’ And for all of two seconds they didn’t quite catch the sarcasm in my voice.
I have been in two productions of Alice in Wonderland as well. Guess what? I didn’t play Alice in either of them! In the first version I was the Caterpillar and the Hatter, in the second I was the Dormouse.
What annoys me most is that people reference the frankly, in my opinion worst versions of AiW. I.e. the Disney film
That Alice is a simpering little idiot with yellow hair. I do not wish to be associated with her.
The other version people tend to go for is the Tim burton version which isn't as bad, in fact it’s mildly enjoyable if I'm not in the mood to think. It is however Tim Burton through and through but that’s another problem in itself. For the record, don’t hate Burton, am tired of seeing the same ‘dark and whimsical for no reason’ film over and over.
Then you have The Looking Glass wars book series, which is an interesting take on the story. Or the Alice SyFy mini-series, which I like somewhat. The 1999 hallmark version is my favoured version and yes I have read the book, the hallmark version is the closest adaptation to it and it also had Jim Henson’s workshop involved which I love.
I don't hate the story. I just hate being referenced to it constantly. Especially when it’s always the Disney version people think of.
Also please do not reference Alice Cullen, or the song ‘Alice, who the fuck is Alice’. Because they are done to death also.
