In Lost in Oz, an unaired 2002 pilot for a WB drama show, Ozma appeared as a young, helpless girl kept eternally young by the Wicked Witch of the West. The main characters of that show rescued her and returned her to the good witch. However, throughout the show, she does not have any lines.

Wow. I am SOOOOOOOOO incredibly glad that this was NEVER PICKED UP. The thought of MY Oz, in the hands of that FIEND, the WB?

Shivers, my friends. SHIVERS down the SPINE.

The COMPLETE Adventures in Oz comic!!!!

When I was a kid, I only had one of these, the one called "The Golden Apples of Oz". But it was a comic I read over and over and over and over and...well you get the idea. And now it's out in a GLORIOUS single edition with 70 bonus pages including a new short comic about my favorite Ozian of all time, General Jinjur!!

...With the amazon gift money I still have left over from my birthday, the price WOULD be halved. I don't need to buy food for a few days. I have 5 apples. A man could FEAST on five apples! And it would SOOOOOOOOO be worth it.......

*ponders further*

*bites lip*

Ozma/Dorothy femmeslash! I finally found Oz femmeslash!!!!!

That is a glorious thing.
So, here I am, actually updating like I promised, I swear!

I'm been downloading episodes of House M.D. like a coke addict hitting up dealers for the next fix, it's that bad. I even have the House Wilson icon to prove it. *points at new shiny icon* I was up till four a.m. last night, watching three episodes in a row. It was pretty sick, but OHSOWORTHIT. I love the House. And the Wilson. Best scene so far? Wilson dramatically reciting a love poem written by an 82 year old patient in love with House. BEST LOOK EVER I've yet to see on an actor's face, though no wonder there's House/Wilson slash up the wahzoo, they are OHSOGAY for each other in that "What? Gay? Us? No, no, no gay here, yep, we oogle women's breasts together and watch porn together while eating chinese together and make manly sexist jokes together and we aren't gay in the LEAST!! NOPE! Not gay!"


In other news, I totally got free food and coffee this morning. Never have I ever been so glad to see an RA before.

Last but not least, I'd like to share this little drawing I found in The Marvelous Land of Oz, the second Oz book, and centered on the return of Ozma, rightful ruler of Oz. Now, Glinda up to this point has been all like "Oh, if only we could find Ozma, oh woe is us!" and when they DO "find" Ozma...well, BAUM most definately did NOT write them doing THIS!!!:

Their love is so...confused? Their love is so...confused?

Why are Glinda and Ozma in a passionate embrace, making out to their hearts delight? WTF illustrator, WTF!!!

...I'd never thought I'd say it. Ozma and Glinda are totally gay for eachother. Whodathunk?

Well, that's all I have to say about that!!
...And all I really want to do is figure out how to create a crazy Oz theme for my Live journal. I've finally discovered that the Oz literary world was stretched to 40 books total...that's FORTY books, the big 4-0 people!! Little children wanted some more Dorothy THAT badly. Luckily, 15 of those were written by Baum, and I found the text for all of them online. Thank goodness I won't have to actaully shell out cash to feed my addiction to all that is Oz.

But seriously, folks, Oz has some pretty fucked up shit in it. For example, Ozma, the rightful ruler of Oz? Yea, well she was captured as a baby when her father was kicked off the throne by the Wicked Witch of the North, Mombi, who then turned her into a boy and raised her as her servant. That's right folks. Until Ozma escaped from Mombi and found Glinda, the Good Witch of the South, Ozma was a boy. Named Tip. A very funny bit at the end of the book runs that Tip doesn't want to be transformed back into a girl, and everyone's like "but we'll still LOVE you and be your friend!" and then he turns into the beautiful and wise Ozma and everyone cheers and every transgendered bloke in the world is thinking "damn, I wish it were THAT easy to change into what I truly am."

But whatever modern fun we can poke at Oz, let's all keep in mind that Baum was writing OZ from 1900 to 1920. Yea. Just smile and nod.

And the Patchwork Girl Powns. Hard. She's just CR-AAAZY like that.

On that note, I desire the Wizard of Oz DVD.

Wizard of Oz tidbit for the night: In the lands of Oz within the Impassable Desert (which later turns out TO be passable cause Baum had to expand his plot horizons by book # 3) There are four lands:

Gillikin in the North, who's favorite color is Purple.

Munchinland in the East, who's favorite color is Blue.

There are the Quadlings in the South who's favorite color is Red and who are ruled by Glinda (Glinda? In the SOUTH!?! But it cannot BE!!...Oh, but it IS.)

And the Winkies in the West, who rock Yellow and the melting of Witches.

And Now, I should go to sleep.
