Sleepy Hollow

The other day something terrible donned upon me- We don't have the Tim Burton rendition of "Sleepy Hollow" in our DVD collection. Sometimes things get lost in translation when moving (and we've moved a lot) but still, why we don't have this movie has baffled me. I'm a Burton fan, have been since I was a kid and first saw "The Nightmare Before Christmas"*. I was hooked on his characters as any black sheep searching for the "yes, I understand" would be. From Batman Returns to Beetlejuice, Big Fish to Edward Scissorhands, Frankenweenie and Ed Wood, I loved them all but something about Sleepy Hollow bewitched me and it's not just Johnny Depp looking incredibly dapper either. I still can't exactly put my finger on it to this day but here's some pictures I found that may explain it more than I could. Given the time of the year and Halloween's impending arrival I figured it was only appropriate-

Kinda makes me appreciate my tattoo more

*Contrary to popular belief given the fact that I am a Burton fan, I DID NOT name my son after Jack Skellington.
