Alice in Wonderland: Mass Culture

owc-banner.jpgFor the last question of the day we thought we would provide some metaphorical dessert. After the break is a video of the Jefferson Airplane song “White Rabbit.” I’d like to know what you think of mass culture reinterpretations of Alice? What is your favorite? Would any incite Lewis Carroll’s wrath?

    ooooh- I remember back when I was a young lad seeing the Tom Petty music video for “Don’t Come Around Here No More.” Tom Petty was dressed as the Mad Hatter, and at the end I remember Alice turned into a cake and everyone started to eat her!!!
    I was so freaked out I didn’t eat birthday cake for years!

    This classic tune of Jefferson Airplane is a masterpiece. One I have always admired the artistry of it. Ingenious, really.
    I attended a number of their concerts, back in the day!! Both when Jefferson Airplane, and then Starship.
    The novel and movie, Go Ask Alice, were quit good.
    Thanks for the very cool YouTubes…a great touch!!!
