Time lapsing (some awesome videos to check out)

Time lapse photography/film is so trippy isn’t it?¬† I’ve a few videos below I found recently, of places I want to travel to.¬† Like a lot of Australians, I’m wildly attracted to pure, clean, coldness in countries such as our neighbour New Zealand and Scandinavia. Have a look, they’ll give you an incredible sense of[read more…]

Freaks and Geeks

Freaks and Geeks

Does anyone remember this late 90s show?¬† It was¬†way ahead of its time, yet seriously underrated, which is probably why it only ever lasted one season.¬† I love¬†revisiting old shows and¬†watching¬†this now makes me realise how¬†funny and¬†heart warming, yet¬†dark it was.¬† The writing, comedic timing, characters¬†and storylines were¬†subtle¬†and¬†insightful¬†and practically everybody was in it!¬† Much like[read more…]

Charlotte Rampling

Charlotte Rampling

I’ve always really liked the coolly enigmatic British actress Charlotte Rampling; she’s often in disturbing yet¬†fascinating movies (and I love that, in Britain at least, female actors are still going strong in decent roles¬†as they become older).¬† Some of her movies I’ve seen lately include: Swimming Pool (trailer below) Never Let Me Go I, Anna[read more…]

INXS: Never Tear Us Apart (2 part biopic)

Can’t wait to see this!¬† I grew up with INXS, like a lot of Gen Xers and will sadly¬†always remember the day Michael died (you know you’re getting on a bit when you¬†start saying¬†things like, I remember when such and such died).

The Electric Daisy Carnival

Ant forwarded this video of the Electric Daisy Carnival to me the other day, it’s epic!¬† Aside from how awesome it looks, the editing is incredible.¬† Also, the fairy wings, happy faces and¬†dance music¬†reminds me of the 90s/early 2000s¬†in such a fun and sparkly¬†way. ¬† Video belongs to: Electric Daisy Carnival

The many faces of Sam Rockwell and happy Friday

The many faces of Sam Rockwell and happy Friday

I love this guy; he’s a brilliant, yet underrated actor, makes some really¬†interesting, often off-the-beaten track¬†movies¬†and manages to look completely different in every single one of them ….¬†to the point where I sometimes don’t recognise him.¬† Also he’s kinda cute and has brilliant comedic timing in that sort of effortless way. Some of Sam’s new[read more…]

How to Be Alone (the book!)

How to Be Alone (the book!)

A few years back, I shared this beautiful short film directed by Andrea Dorfman depicting a poem by Tanya Davis, which sort of changed my life.  I spotted recently that an illustrated, hard cover pocket book has been released, based on the much loved poem in the short film.

The Americans

The Americans

I’m really enjoying this series.¬† Like any child of the 80s, I grew up¬†learning about cold war politics and still find it fascinating.

Movie review – It’s Kind of a Funny Story

This cool little movie about a depressed 16 year old (played by Keir Gilchrist, known for United States of Tara) who¬†unwittingly¬†admits himself to an adult psychiatric ward, is an absolute gem. The movie¬†has a¬†number of¬†clever, charming fantasy scenes¬†played out in our lad’s mind which¬†give a contemporary sort of alternative feel to the movie as well[read more…]

How to be alone

This¬†short film¬†by¬†Canadian filmmaker¬†Andrea Dorfman is so touching and sweet and broaches a subject most people don’t want to think about very often.¬† The combination of the youthful, sweet voice, the simple yet defining words, the¬†distinctly European feel and¬†the cute and clever editing make it one of my favourite¬†videos.
