Best Tribute to Atreyu

Neverending Story: The Van!

When my mom took us to see the Neverending Story I couldn't believe we were going to go see a movie without my dad (where was the money coming from?). Also, it's my earliest memory of my mom disliking a movie. And I problems with the dragon being a dog with scales. And we went to a theater that was really far away from our house. Whatever, I was 7.

so if your at work, and you click on the Guy Frechette link at the bottom of the van page *WARNING* just make sure nobody else is watching!

Wait. I thought that you never get to hear the name that Bastian yells out into the night to save the Empress. Why does this page have an airbrushed photo of "THE CHILDLIKE EMPRESS OF FANTASIA WHO IS LATER NAMED MOONCHILD BY BASTIAN TO SAVE FANTASIA."

Moonchild? Wasn't it supposed to be the name of his mother? WTF.

So apparently there is band called Atreyu now. Are those punk kids even old enough to have seen the Neverending Story?? I'm probably old enough to be their mother (okay not really) and all I remember was that huge black-panther looking thing in the cave scaring the crap out of me.

The movie is based on a German novel (which is, naturally, more complex and philosophical than the film) and in that novel he names her after his mother. His mother's name translates to "Moonchild."

I guess it might sound better in German, but I always suspected that she was a hippie.

The novel's really good, by the way.

all I know is, I WAS the princess for halloween my freshman year at BYU and I looked pretty much just like her except not and the funny thing was that EVERYBODY knew who I was supposed to be...you would think I just had big curly hair with a huge pendant on my forhead and a white dress but those were the days...everybody knew...
