Lady and The Tramp

         There are some movies that transcend time. Unfortunately this isn’t one of them. There is the old fashioned vintage animation that is in many ways better and more appealing than today’s CGI computerized effects. While I recognized the art that went into making such classic art work. It is the story here that somehow didn’t appeal to this conasouer.

         I still remember the classic spegetti and meatball scene. Who could forget that? I also enjoed the contakerise siamese twins.It was the rest of the movie that left me feeling hungry for more. I simply wasn’t fullfilled by  this Disney meal. I considered it more like an appitizer.

         Maybe, it was the age of the movie that I found unapealing. Perhaps it was the age of the viewer. Without any children to share it with I had no young eyes to view the film with. Disney movies are after all aimed for a slightly younger crowd. While many of Disney’s animated classics make me feel youthful and vibrant. This one simply reminded me of my age.

         I can still move to the pre-MTV video like animated shorts of Fantasia. I continue to enjoy the swinging songs of Jungle Book. This movie made me feel “dog tired”. 101 Dalmatians is the next Disney film I expect to spot in my mailbox. (I have Netflix). Perhaps this one will leave my tail wagging with more excitement.

         I think it’s ironic that I didn’t fall in love with this story of romance. While I wasn’t howling at the moon when this movie ended either. It was just a thing to do on a lonely Saturday  for an hour and fifteen minutes. The time didn’t go fast enough.

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
