'f' is for flannel

There once was a girl who watched 7+ episodes of My So-Called Life in one day, this left her with an incredible urge to own all things flannel, listen to Crowded House, dye her hair red and do early 90s related things in general (and go on a date with Claire Danes).

Hopefully she'll snap out of it pretty soon, but who knows.. it might last a while.

things i've found

So, I've always been fascinated by the animation in the video for Röyksopp's 'Remind Me', it is just so amazingly well put together.. If you're into electronica at all, you will know and LOVE this tune (at least for the dreamy vocals by Erlend "Kings of Convenience"/"Whitest Boy Alive"-Oye).. It's so addictive.

Anyhow, this morning I found this video on le tubes.. It is a reinterpretation of Red Riding Hood and the animation is (very) inspired by the Röyksopp video above. It was apparently done for a school assignment - impressive. The music is pretty terrible, so you might wanna mute it. However, I'd say that the animation is pretty damn brilliant.
Check it out..

Ah, I wish I had ideas/talent like that..!

(Wtf, Blogger? AGAIN embedded videos eat up half of my side bar..!)

javier and vampire boy

Okay, there's no easy way to say this..
I accidentally watched Twilight tonight (only it wasn't accidental).
Here are my thoughts on it..
  • That vampire guy is not bad looking, not at all.
  • It is like watching a Harry Potter movie, only with less wizards, more vampires and no magic. Or maybe one could say that it is like an emo version of the typical high school chick flick?
  • That vampire guy is not bad looking, not at all.
  • My favourite part was when they played vampire baseball.. wtf?!
  • That vampire guy is not bad looking, not at all.
  • Oh, and apparently there are good AND bad vampires, who knew?
  • That vampire guy is not bad looking, not at all.
Uhm, that pretty much sums everything up. I guess I just got over that kind of movies a few years ago. But yeah, vampire guy = sexy.

Haha, I have no idea who that vampire dude is.. I really should insert a picture of him here, but I can't be bothered to google it right now. I did, however, have this wonderful picture saved on my laptop for no particular reason... Javier Bardem in No Country for Old Men, the Coen brothers are pure genius and Chigurh is one of my favourite movie characters (mainly because of his haircut), ever.
Hmm.. perhaps they should have casted Javier for Twilight.. Just to give it that slightly psychotic twist that we all love so very much?

Man who hires Wells: [about Chigurh] Just how dangerous is he?
Carson Wells: Compared to what? The bubonic plague?

(Meh.. I have other things to write about too, but that'll have to wait. Right now I'm on a kick with these super superficial kinda posts, it seems)

'Mankind is No Island'

I want to share this short film with you. It is the winner of Tropfest NY 2008, you may have seen it already, but I just discovered it a few days ago.

Everything about it seems so simple and honest, the way in which the words are filmed and put together is perfect and the idea behind it is great.. Music and images are both so heartbreakingly beautiful.
I think this is possibly be the best short film I have seen. Ever.

spring, shopping and general excitement

I suppose my blogging has not been the most uplifting to read the past few weeks, but today that will change. Cause today I bring you.... THE SUPERFICIAL SHOPPING BLOG - YAY!!!
It is March already, which means that spring is here (or at least it should be), and today I felt this great need to go shopping and buy some spring-ish things. And yes, I'm gonna share them with you.. Well I won't actually be sharing them with you, but you know what I mean!

Picture time... (Haha, I bitch about daily booth being narcissistic.. and instead I do a blog full of pictures. Oh, the irony of it all..)

Green plastic flower thingies for mah hurr...

Swallow earrings... (perhaps I should have invested in a manicure instead.. I suck at the whole nail thing, obviously)

Lovely purple shoes..

And travel books...

Wait. WHAT!? Mm Hmm.. Looks like someone is going transatlantic in April (this would be the general excitement part, in case you were wondering).
Yup, my university is arranging an excursion to the States which means that I'll be spending around two weeks on the other side of the world. This will be the first time that I travel outside of Europe, and I am so freaking excited! So guys, stuff to see and do in NYC and Washington DC?? I need suggestions, GO-GO-GO!
The fact that I had to prostitute myself in order to afford the trip.. Well, that's a different story that I really wouldn't wanna bore you with.

Like I said in an earlier post, I need 2009 to be amazing. I guess all I have to do is make it happen.

there's someone i'd like you to meet

Today I needed her more than ever.

This morning I found out that my 'remaining parent' is sick.
