groundhog day

this part always makes me laugh and laugh

La fille que j’aimera
Sera comme bon vin
Qui se bonifiera
Un peu chaque matin.

The girl that I will love
Will be like good wine
Which improves
a bit each morning

… actually a line from a Jacques Brel song. ha ha.

the virgin suicides

Air popped up on my playlist this morning, which of course made me think of The Virgin Suicides. one of those movies that i love, but hardly ever watch. i think most girls my age can relate when i say this film had an impact on my teenage days (i was 16 when it came out). we were the same age as the lisbon chicks (but, hopefully, not as sheltered/melancholic/suicidal) and we all kind of had a thing for josh hartnett.

these are scans from the may 2000 issue of the face

the irresistible combination of the visuals and music of this film must have inspired thousands of girls to create flickr photo sets that are dreamy + ethereal and heavily photoshopped to look pastel + lovely. sophia coppola is their queen, as you can also pick up in the recent ad she did for miss dior cherie:

it’s all very pretty though, isn’t it?

bored to death

“leaking toxins from where?”

bored to death is a new show on HBO. ok wait – this has jason schwartzman, zach galifianakis AND ted danson in it. it also has a great tagline: “a noir-rotic comedy”. i bet it never airs in south africa, or gets cruelly cancelled before it reaches our shores (much like arrested development, or something)

confession: i used to have a total crush on ted danson when i was a kid! yes, something about his dry wit / sarcasm. there was cheers, of course, but i LOVED him in 3 men and a baby / little lady. hah. come on, i was only 7ish. anyway, he’s like the original hugh laurie.

now i have a semi-crush on jason schwartzman and zach galifianakis. don’t really have a type, i guess.
