2 Days in Paris

(!) I just read that Julie Delpy wrote, directed, produced and edited (and wrote the music for) her new film, 2 Days in Paris. What a renaissance woman! It’s looks like she’s taken the “walk-and-talker” format of Before Sunrise/Sunset and run with it. Can’t wait. Can’t wait.

love is a stranger

Enjoy some vintage psychotic Annie. I would not want to mess with this woman. (Britney should ditch the hair extensions and take a page from the Lennox book.)

It’s savage and it’s cruel
And it shines like destruction
Comes in like the flood
And it seems like religion
It’s noble and it’s brutal
It distorts and deranges
And it wrenches you up
And you’re left like a zombie…

Its guilt edged
Glamorous and sleek by design
You know its jealous by nature
False and unkind
Its hard and restrained
And its totally cool
It touches and it teases
As you stumble in the debris

love shack


Tiny tract of land. Lil’ eco-house. Beautiful view. Bookshelf. DSL. What more? Other views of love shack on Desire To Inspire.

death is the road to awe



I swear to God, I will never understand how millions of people trek to theaters to see movies like Blades of Glory (yeah, I love Will too), but a film like The Fountain gets pulled after three weeks because there’s no audience. The power of critics? Fortunately, if you missed The Fountain, it’s out on HD DVD this week. Unfortunately, there’s no way in hell a television can capture the visual grandiosity of this film – a cinematic experience of a lifetime, which you likely missed, even though I tried to tell you (!) If you rent or buy The Fountain, be warned this film is better felt than figured. Relax and don’t bother trying to sort it through until afterward. Best to let the emotions and images and music wash over you, leaving the imprint of a brilliantly strange tale of love, surrender and obliteration.

ship chapeaux


Rare Autumn writes about haute couture milliner, Philip Treacy, and his late fashion muse Isabella Blow and the book they made together, When Phillip Met Isabella. The book features photographs of Treacly’s spectacular and whacky creations. I’ve long loved that silhoutte photo of his ship hat used for Bryan Ferry/Roxy Music’s best of album. I’m assuming Treacy was either inspired by Marie Antoinette…


…. or that giant in Time Bandits.

The always stellar, Goldenfiddle, has a listen to The Ghost of You Lingers — “All Casio-mash 80’s vibe and reverb vox” — a song off Spoon’s new album, Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga. Album out July 10. Happy birthday to me.

{artist} Charlotte Cynthia Walton



Per Charming Sam’s suggestion, I went over to Charlotte Walton’s portfolio for some inspriation and was intrigued by all her crazy mythical, shamanistic creatures! I wish some of her pieces were enlargeable because I couldn’t make out the detail or writing – love how she integrates words, quotes, scribbles, etc. into her stuff.


— something about seeing hand-written words over these book pages is so irreverent, but gives what’s written exagerated importance – like I’ll say what I want to say. New words trump the old. I’ve seen a lot of drawings and prints done on torn book pages and sheet music lately. I like this trend.
