Oz the Great and Powerful and Tornadoes!

Good news everyone! 1 more day to go and Oz the Great and Powerful will be in our local theater. We already got our tickets, though we will actually be going on Saturday owing to the fact that Amanda (creator of the legendary Potato Soup featured in (Magician of Oz 2009) is otherwise engaged and she wants to go as well.

So I has to wait 24 hours while everyone other Oz fan watches it, then cheers or complains about the film.

Now, if you recall, in the 1939 MGM Wizard of Oz film, Dorothy is transported to Oz by way of tornado, which rips up her house and deposits it, Dorothy (and her little dog too!) into Oz.

Of course, they end up in Munchkin City, sitting right on top of the Wicked Witch of the East. Not a good day to be a Wicked Witch in Oz, wouldn't you say? I guess she was just another victim of the housing market crash! Groan....


So now, Disney's film, Oz the Great and Powerful also uses a tornado as a means of transport into Oz. I sense a kind of theme here...

Being someone who teaches Weather & Climate at a rural Illinois community college, I'm not sure I'd wanna travel by tornado. Those things will kill you! Especially if you happen to be living in a trailer park. Something about trailer parks attracts tornadoes. Go figure?

Now, another interesting thought for me is whether or not the night sky will be shown during the film. I'm also an astronomer with a new comet to look at tonight (Comet Pann-Starrs; my 85th comet) and I'm reminded of Shadow Demon of Oz 2010 (my 2nd book), which starts out with a large comet that so happens to play a pivotal role in the story.

Oh well, in about 48 hours or so, I'll know, won't I?

Carpe Noctum!!!
