I don’t know how they’ve effected me other than to cement my love of the weird and kooky.
One particularly vivid memory I have of childhood films is about the Alice in wonderland. One of my Granddad’s friends used to babysit me, she was an elderly lady and I can’t remember her much, except that when I went round there I watched Alice in Wonderland.
I had always thought that she had the best copy of this because that Alice had what I liked to call ‘marmalade hair’, to my infant mind the ginger clearly looked like marmalade.
I don’t know why I considered this the better version as, looking back on it, it was probably due to tape degradation. Yes folks I grew up in the era of video tapes.
It got me thinking about how strange it is that little things like that stick with us, whereas other important things get filtered for no apparent reason, important things like names and passwords.
