I have a soft spot for dark poetry and dark art. The world of Tim Burton fits perfectly into that soft spot and has had a special place in my heart for many years. I was thrilled when my son started having Nightmare Before Christmas as his favorite movie at around age two and it actually still is one of his favorites.
We had a movie night tonight where we watched it yet again and after it was done we watched some of the bonus features as well. Then I was reminded of what an amazing poet Tim Burton really is and at once I wanted to share it with you guys 🙂
Here you have the original poem “The Nightmare Before Christmas” by Tim Burton, narrated by Christopher Lee. A perfect combination!
And here you have “Vincent”, an amazing short story about a boy who’s a little bit different from everyone else.
