Princess Me?

Confession: I am aware of the infamous Jonathan Coulton, but I do not actually know or own any of his songs. Not because I don’t want to — just because I haven’t gotten around to it.  So when my brand-new friend Jennifer from Capclave posted on my wall that Coulton’s song “The Princess Who Saved Herself” reminded her of…

Princess Alethea’s Fairy Tale Theatre: Episode 22

Episode 22: “Tom Thumb” (13:47) Here’s a treat after last week — the infamous tale of tiny hero Tom Thumb.

Princess Alethea’s Fairy Tale Theatre: Episode 21

Episode 21: “The Golden Key” (1:16) This should hardly qualify as an episode of the podcast, as the tale of The Golden Key is little over a minute long. The tale itself is just as disappointing…with sort of a “Lady and the Tiger” ending. It makes me wonder why the Grimm Brothers would have included it in their folk…
