Have your book and eat it too

“Does your novel contain recipes?” I kept getting asked whenever I told somebody about what I was working on. “No” I would answer. But, after being asked the same question about 20 times, I clued in that I need to find a way to say “yes”. “This is something that […]

Planned Surprise 2

Life is full of surprises my dear friend. Snow in March in Vancouver. The sun making a brief appearance after weeks and weeks of rain. Receiving a package in the mail to discover that an overseas friend sent you a gift for no reason at all–they simply felt like it. […]

If Quentin Tarantino Wrote Snow White :: Story Mashup

This is the story of Snow White Tarantino style.

Pot-bellied Snow White gorges herself on blueberry pancakes after a revenge killing spree. Wait until Prince Charming gets a hold of all this….how will he react?

Watch this video first and then read the full story below.

Chapter 1

“Mirror mirror on the wall, who has killed the most of all” Asked the queen.
On this day, unlike all the days that came before it, there was a new answer.

Chapter 2
The Seven Short Psychopaths in Black Suits

Each one was named after his favorite method. Strangler. Shooter. Cleaver. Author used a sharp pen. Crusher, Poison and Tickler. All seven where happy to meet a woman who didn’t try to change them.

Now if this was a proper Quentin Tarantino story it would be peppered with the N-word. Our narrator refused to cooperate with our effort towards authenticity. So you have to use your imagination.

The Queen appeared in Snow White’s car.
“Hey, young woman, would you like a burger?”
“No thank you!”

Ezekiel 25:17. “The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon you.” Now… I been sayin’ that shit for years. And if you ever heard it, that meant your ass. You’d be dead right now. I never gave much thought to what it meant. I just thought it was a cold-blooded thing to say to a motherfucker before I popped a cap in his ass. But I saw some shit this mornin’ made me think twice. See, now I’m thinking: maybe it means you’re the evil man. And I’m the righteous man. And Mr. 9mm here… he’s the shepherd protecting my righteous ass in the valley of darkness. Or it could mean you’re the righteous man and I’m the shepherd and it’s the world that’s evil and selfish. And I’d like that. But that shit ain’t the truth. The truth is you’re the weak. And I’m the tyranny of evil men. But I’m tryin’, Ringo. I’m tryin’ real hard to be the shepherd.

Pulp Fiction is one of those movies. You watch it once and it lingers in your imagination. Like that scene with Samuel L. Jackson quoting from the bible. I can never un-see that. It is stuck inside my mind.

This is an experiment in story mashup. I have many many ideas similar to this. Making this video was tons of fun. I laughed so much while making it. Thinking of ways to stick Kill Bill, Django Unchained and Pulp Fiction into the story of Snow White. This is Snow White Tarantino style. I decided to keep the video short, rely on the fact that most people already know the story. I don’t need to tell the whole tale, only the bits that are different.

So what other story mashup should I do next? Please tell me.

Intense Emotions

“I don’t care if my next protagonist is a serial killer” I thought to myself after I finished writing my first novel. “As long as he or she is easy to get along with.” The seven year I spent with the main character of that story have frayed my nerves […]

Dance Me A River

Do you think the Mississippi river ever says: ” I wish I was as long as the Nile?” Does the Yangtze River in China ever lament the fact it flows in only one country when the Amazon washes across a whole continent? Does the calm Euphrates ever say to swift […]
