It was 1992, and I was at the brink of adolescent rage - the neighborhood cutie must have thought me as a freak; I have just begun freshman year at an all-girls high school filled with nuns and kids with trapper-keepers and Benetton shirts; and yet, my only cause of worry was saving enough money … Continue reading Aladdin: I may have gotten older — but it’s still a whole new world
Here's a film that managed to stay with me, all these years, after I first saw it on a grainy YouTube copy: Please forget the weird voice-over.
