    Princess Alethea’s Fairy Tale Theatre: Episode 25

    Episode 25: “The Marvelous Minstrel” The Marvelous Minstrel…or perhaps the PSYCHOPATH MINSTREL, because seriously…this guy is a jerk. The ASPCA would *not* approve. And, quite frankly, neither do I. Check out Princess Alethea’s Rant about this fairy tale HERE.

    Princess Alethea’s Fairy Tale Theatre: Episode 22

    Episode 22: “Tom Thumb” (13:47) Here’s a treat after last week — the infamous tale of tiny hero Tom Thumb. This tale is his origin story and only some of his adventures — the tale is continued in “Tom Thumb’s Travels,” which is a separate piece. I had a lot of fun with the voices on this one. Enjoy!

    Princess Alethea’s Fairy Tale Theatre: Episode 21

    Episode 21: “The Golden Key” (1:16) This should hardly qualify as an episode of the podcast, as the tale of The Golden Key is little over a minute long. The tale itself is just as disappointing…with sort of a “Lady and the Tiger” ending. It makes me wonder why the Grimm Brothers would have included it in their folk tales at all. Any boy who finds a key — golden or otherwise — and a box is going to try and open the box. Right??

    People are always wondering how to say my name. Every so often, I have to make a post and remind them. Thanks to clever Audacity and the fabulous microphone on my Powerbook, I can say it for you aloud so there is no misunderstanding. READY?!? Say it with me: ALETHEA KONTIS Now I’m going to stick this on my FAQs. Hooray for technology!
