Time for all
The children call
Their favorite time of year.
I hope everyone is having a nice Xmas day. Kitty and I are just chilling and watching the Ovation Channel's "Battle of the Nutcrackers." Kitty stumbled upon it last night while channel surfing. I don't think either of us had ever watched this station before. They were showing a version called The Hard Nut which can best be described as "hip and cool" while maintaining the traditions of the original ballet. Of course I was in it for the rats/mice. *grins* I have seen several versions of the ballet live, and I'm always interested in seeing how they treat the rodent characters. Usually the suits are very simple such as grey spandex. Maybe there will be ears or tails which is a major plus. In this version there was a complete head but pretty much a traditional ballet outfit for the body. It was during this performance that we found out that the Ovation Channel would be showing several versions of The Nutcracker all day on Christmas. I love the music, but I love the rat suits even more! So today we have been watching several versions including one with a very young Macaulay Culkin. That version had full fursuits! It was the first time I had ever seen that! It was awesome! There was one version with no rodents at all! BOO! Right now we're watching Nutcracker: The Motion Picture. I hope they had a big budget so they could afford nice suits.
Have yourself a furry little Christmas!
