It’s been ages since I posted something here. It’s not that I lost interest in the blog or Aladdin, I do though I admit it’s less that say 2-3 years ago. The thing is I hardly come across anything news worthy. Well I got something for you today on the last day of 2011. Browsing YouTube I stumbled upon two ladies who made a habit out of reinacting Disney songs in live action. The result is fun and looks great it’s obivous they took their time to plan put the songs and not burst into random sillyness.
Their A Friend Like Me is also worth a watch though I personally didn’t like it that much.
For a comparison of the singing voices of Lea Salonga in “Aladdin” and Liz Callaway in both sequels led to the creation of Aladdin and Jasmine Medley. The song is a mix of the three love duets from “Aladdin”, Return of Jafar and Aladdin and the King of Thieves.
The songs are mixed by either Federica or Gaia somewhere in the late 1990’s / early 2000. Both girls are from Italy and former active members of the Aladdin Mailing List.
As a matter of fact Federica was one of the earliest members there and she Gaia and Evi where best pals, both online and in real life I believe. Her friend Gaia joined the List sometime early 1999. The three ran The Animated Movies Archive from 1998 until it was left abandoned compactly in 2000. It’s been in its present state for almost 7 years now. And despite the lack of maintained the site still functions pretty well.
Anyway, while listing I was reminded of those old friends. I haven’t heard from them in years and hope they’re doing well. Chances are neither of them will ever read this post but if they do. Fede, Gaia, Evi hope you are doing well and sometimes think back at the good old days at the AML.
