In the shadow of the forest
Though she may be old and worn…
Artist’s comments excerpt:
“„So they fled across the night together, step by step, the tall man in black and the horned white beast. The magician crept as close to the unicorn‘s light as he dared, for beyond it moved hungry shadows, the shadows of the sounds that the harpy made as she destroyed the little there was to destroy of the Midnight Carnival. But another sound followed them long after these had faded, followed them into morning on a strange road – the tiny, dry sound of a spider weeping.“
– Peter S. Beagle, the Last Unicorn, chapter 3”

Just finished reading The Last Unicorn. (I read fast if something grabs me. And it’s a fairly short book, just shy of 300 pages.)
Excellent story, wonderful feelings. I like Schmendrick much better here, and the descriptions of the Red Bull are even more terrifying than his film depiction. That said, I think the Bull as presented in the book only works in a book.
They’re both a wonderful fairy tale, film and novel. Experience both as soon as possible!
I has a book.
“There… there they are. There they are! They are mine! They belong to me! The Red Bull gathered them for me one-by-one and I bade him drive each one into the sea! Now, they live there. And every tide carries them within an easy step of the land. But they dare not come out of the water. They are afraid of the Red Bull.
I like to watch them. They fill me with joy. The first time I felt it, I thought I was going to die. I said to the Red Bull, ‘I must have them! I must have all of them, all there are! For nothing makes me happy but their shining, and their grace.’ So, the Red Bull caught them. Each time I see the unicorns - my unicorns - it is like that morning in the woods, and I am truly young, in spite of myself.”

Oh yes, expect to see a lot of this movie and book here. Story of how the blog started: I saw an America greatest hits album at a truck stop, had ALL THE CHILDHOOD FEELS, then remembered they did the songs for The Last Unicorn, so I watched the movie again and said “You know I love the crap out of oldschool unicorns, let’s start a blog”.
“Now That I’m A Woman” and “That’s All I Have to Say” are a lot less corny the second time around.
Why is this movie reducing me to a blubbering wreck all of a sudden?
Step 1: See a greatest hits CD from America at the new Pilot in town
Step 2: ALL THE CHILDHOOD FEELS
Step 3: Plan to buy like everything the band did next paycheck or seven
Step 4: Remember that America did the soundtrack for The Last Unicorn
Step 5: ALL THE ADULTHOOD FEELS BECAUSE YOU MISSED THAT MOVIE AS A KID
Step 6: Plan to look for and/or start a blog dedicated to awesome oldschool chimeric unicorns, none of these horses with narwhal tusks stapled to their heads (except perhaps on special occasions)
