This looks like an outhouse
in the woods with a tall first step, I know.
But this doorway in the forest is a
magic portal to other places, other times.
There are lots of ways to travel.
The magic ones are best.
are a type of portal that can whisk you into the past.
The one below will whisk you back to March, 1999.
You'll be in a room watching an innocent, doe-eyed, 17 year-old
Britney Spears toss her hair and talk about her rise to fame.
(She got her start on The New Mickey Mouse Club at age 11,
along with Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake.)
In this 1999 video,
she hasn't a glimpse of the heartache
and embarrassment she'll endure in the decade to come.
It's never what they said it would be.
“I asked Jack [Kerouac,] 'Well how do you like fame?'
He said, 'It's like old newspapers blowing down Bleecker Street.'”
