Coco avant Chanel

One of the best movies I've ever seen. No words I could ever come up with could describe it so I'm not even going to try.

I've found some internet so posting might pick up.

I've been feeling inspired by the whole idea of Alice in Wonderland lately, having spent the last two and a half weeks in my own personal Wonderland. I went to the British Library the other day to see their collection of old manuscripts and had to catch my breath when I came upon Charles Dodgson's original copy of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland complete with the author's own illustrations over the text and in the margins. A couple of days later I was in Absolute Vintage, and Gwen Stefani's "What You Waiting For?" came on. I hadn't heard it in years, but it has definitely got to be one of my favorite music videos of all time. The Alice theme is presented so well, and Gwen Stefani looks flawless. I remember watching this video in high school and thinking that she was so incredibly badass. Then today I came across the first teaser trailer for Tim Burton's version of the story, which it set to come out March 5, 2010. Watch it here in high definition. It's going to be amazing.

Hello, There.

Having a grand ole time in London, but internet is not as easily accessible as I would like. I'll be back in full force in a couple of weeks, though. Until then.

Out At The Pictures

I went to see Public Enemies last night, and I highly recommend it if you like Johnny Depp, the 30s, and machine guns, which I kind of do. Other movies I am eager to see in the next month or so:

With the exception of Moon, which I only just heard about two weeks ago, I've been dying to see these movies since they were announced. I leave for London on Thursday to study J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis for four weeks so I'll be seeing Coco Before Chanel, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and Moon, which was written and directed by David Bowie's son, Duncan Jones, abroad and Ponyo upon my return to the States. (That was a run-on sentence if I've ever written one.) Here's to spending all of my money at the cinemas this summer.
