My ears can’t get enough of this dreamy song right now. It’s by a new indie-duo from California called Rhye. They’re quite lovely.
I’ve always dreamed of going to Mongolia and living in a yurt under the twinkling stars. Emerald green open meadows as far as the eye can see, and the only sounds- that of gypsy ladies clanging their freshly-filled pails of milk, peeking out at the curious foreigner. And then a group of Mongolian men gallop past on their horses, laughing into the wind.
oh, the labyrinth of lomography－ get involved! the LC-A+ is my favourite! you can get it with a Russian lens and pretend you are an old spy. come on, who doesn’t want to be a spy?! i know we have instagram and all these other vignette apps, but there’s nothing quite so fun as having a proper old camera that you get to wind on. i love that creaky old sound! and waiting for the photos to develop? well, it’s like waiting for your birthday AND christmas! you never know if they’re actually going to work out, or whether they’ll be over-exposed, but well, that’s just a part of the magic. i absolutely love this camera and the beauty of the photos it produces. each one is like getting lost in a land of mysteria. you can decipher for yourself what the shadows and colours leaking-in from all angles mean. it can be a little kaleidoscopic and i like that!
here are a few of my personal favourites of late…
oh lomo, you are a sweet thing!
moody monday blues…ain’t nobody got time for that (to quote Sweet Brown), and so instead i’m making some plans regarding that thing we call ‘life’ and listening to this song by Santigold. it makes me want to fight to make my dreams come true, and fight i will. take that monday!
I don’t know about you, but I LOVE Audrey Tautou. Seeing as Audrey Hepburn is no longer with us, it seems only right that we have another beautiful Audrey gracing our big screens. Best known for her lead role in Amelie, she is a classically quirky, pretty girl. I adore her and I’m so excited to see her star alongside Romain Duris in Michel Gondry’s new film- L’ecume des jours, based on the 1947 novel, which translates as ‘The Foam of the Days.’ It looks absolutely magical and follows the relationship between Colin- a rich inventor of a pianocktail (a little mashup between the piano and the cocktail) and Chloe- a girl who gets sick when a water lily enters her lungs. Now if that doesn’t have you intrigued enough, wait until you hear the only solution to her little illness…
She must be surrounded with flowers at all times. Everyday. Fresh flowers. Everywhere.
Seeing as Gondry directed Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, I wouldn’t really expect anything less from him to be honest. And he also directed The Science of Sleep- another of my favourites. Both gems of a movie.
Apparently it also features The Lumineers song ‘Hey-Ho’, which I’m sure you can’t help but dance along to.
It’s going to be a goody!
Out in France on April 24th…so we can only be patient. Gives us some time to brush up on our French…
