I am running late with my post (I shall blame it on camera gremlins rather than my complete inability to handle my schedule and forgetting the intricacies of how to do a 'post')...
'Shadow of Oz' was a difficult one, I wrestled with everything, how can something under the glow of a rainbow, something that has given so much joy also have a 'dark' side... I looked up the 'scandals' that lurked around the other side of the rainbow, mostly involving oversexed & under 4 foot extras, fallen monkeys hospitalised for heat exhaustion, poisoned tin men, scarred scarecrows and the drunken munchkins that needed rescued from toilet bowls because they were supposed to be on set.
I don't even know if it's true, but it struck me that the 'Shadow of Oz' was actually a part of the Wizard of Oz's extended life, the books exploded into a cosmos of film, fan fiction, art, dolls... 'rumours' you name it... so I guess these are the 'Shadow' of Oz, and now here are 2 things I will add to that shadow... both are give aways, the painting of the 'Shadowy' Flying monkey, who really only wants to please, & a pin of the sweet Dorothy & Toto :)
If you wish to be in the draw for the giveaways please let me below know how big an OZ fan you are below & I will ask Oma to pick the 2 winners from my comments section (please Oma, I am a Libran and it is impossible for me to choose)!
Sorry I am late in posting hope to see you all on the weekend!
