Elphaba

So, yesterday I had the normal/human witch card, and today, I have the Elphaba card. For those of you who don't know who Elphaba is, you may have known her as the Wicked Witch of the West (WWW). Elphaba is based on the book Wicked, which then turned into a very successful musical on Broadway. Her thing was that she was an outcast, which we all know becuase she's green, and because as such, she was kind to the underdogs of the world.

That said, the story goes thru to how she became the WWW, and how she was merely misunderstood. And that Galinda, wasn't all that nice, she was at the right place at the right time. Either way, the story is really a prequel to Wizard of Oz.

Speaking of Oz, I remember seeing a SciFi (which is now SyFy) channel original series called OZ, and it's so funny, same premise, but instead of calling it Oz, they're calling it the O.Z. which makes me thinks of the O.C. Go figure. There were parts that are dragged out (it was like 6 episodes long), but there are parts that's very true to the story. So, that's that.

Anyway, back to the card, I went ahead and hung the Halloween stuff on there to add a bit of interests to the card. I'm not even sure if they celebrate Halloween in Oz, considering everyone is already in 'costume'. Not much of a point to dressing up, huh?

Speaking of Halloween, we saw that Coraline is finally available for rent on iTunes store, and we'll have to get the digital copy of Nightmare Before Xmas. I love that movie, it's so appropriate for Halloween and for Xmas. So cool!

Nice card.

I have wanted to see Wicked but it never toured anyplace near where we lived. Thanks for more insight into the show.
