So I got really bored last night. Really bored. Bored enough that “The Wizard of Oz” was on TV and I watched the whole damn thing. That’s right, I watched it all. A few things came to mind while watching it. How is it that this movie was made in 1939 (more than 70 years ago!) but it is still a decent movie? And as one of my friends (The Wizard of Nas) pointed out to me a while ago, where the hell does the Red Brick Road go?? I never thought of it til he brought it up. So when the time came for Dorothy and Toto to “follow the Yellow Brick Road,” I was a bit confused/angered as to why there wasn’t an explanation regarding the Red Brick Road (no, this isn’t a landmark on NC State’s campus). Where the hell does it go? Anyone? What if they were like “eff this shit” and followed the RBR (my abbreviation for it) instead. I wonder what the story would have been like then. I’m thinking she might have met a Scarecrow with a brain, a Tin Man with a heart, and a brave Lion. Shit maybe, the RBR takes her to a door that leads her to her house in Kansas. Where are all my conspiracy theorists at? How is this shit not up there with the Kennedy assassination and the moon landing (never happened, trust me)? Watching the movie with that in mind had me baffled. If the YBR (also abbreviated) was so important, why didn’t Dorothy ask “Hey where does the Red one go?” Were the Munchkins gonna kill her for asking a question? I doubt it, she just killed a witch with a house! Who the hell was gonna try to fight her for asking a question? I WANNA KNOW!!! Somebody figure this out for me…NOW! Or maybe soon? Hollywood, you wanna make a remake? Instead of making the same movie again, change it up a bit, have her go down the RBR and come up with a new story. Create new characters, give us new songs, you know figure it out. If anybody has any thoughts or suggestions on this, please feel free to let me know. If I like your idea, I will steal it and claim it as my own. When it makes me a billionaire, I’ll take you out to dinner (Wendy’s is a fancy place right?).
(The Red Brick Road is even bigger to start off with!! Why would you not go there?!!)
