Fairy-Tale Files, published once weekly, feature three variations of a fairy tale chosen by one of Fairy Tale Review’s Assistant Editors.
Scottish artist Rachel Maclean uses dialogue from the Italian film version of Snow White in “Lolcats,” a video which she calls an aesthetic fusion of “The Dollar Store, Youtube, and Hieronymus Bosch.”
“Mirror, Mirror on the wall, there’s no reflection here at all!” exclaims Philly band Dr. Dog on their 2010 album “Shame, Shame”—at least that’s one cure for envy.
A talking mirror that doubles as a security system? It’s out there. A U.S. company has invented a mirror in which Basil the talking avatar will inform you of activity around the house.
This edition of Fairy-Tale Files is brought to you by Fairy Tale Review Assistant Editor Tommy Mira y Lopez.
