Protect Good Gerald.

01

So, now that I have a nice camera in my care, I need some good protection to keep him safe, dont I? I have an old camcorder case that is pretty large and does nicely! Although its a bit old and nothing special.. I do have a nice little lens case that zips nice and cozy around the old Canon lens. But now I almost just want one of those old Kodak leather bags just to have! I found a few pictures online via Google and Stylehive.

See below (left), this is what Im talking about. This is an old Leather Kodak colorburst camera holder. The camera that goes inside looks similar to a Polaroid.

Heres another from Style Hive:

This one is just vintage in general, and its so cute! This is the one place (leather bags in general) where grandma-tan works. NOT on my new Honda Civic.

But whether sporty or vintage, Ive got to get a new and updated one soon! Any suggestions [other than Murphy’s Camera Shop]?

Heres another Colorbust that is similar to the one above.

This one is via Etsy!

And To All A Good-Night

 

[You’ll Never Find My Christmas by Bishop Allen]

There are somethings that will never quite be the same and some that just dont change- Christmas is one of the above. Which is it for you?

Well more interestingly it seems to me to be something that will never quite change and I suppose I am alright with that. Im not quite fond of the though of going to Florida for Christmas (whoever came up with that idea: I do not mean to diss your attempt at escaping the cold weather, I just do not understand what you have against snowmen?)

Although it was brought up at the Christmas Eve Sermon at Sojourn

Community Church the other night, how much of a creep Santa really can seem…

I do agree with how he said it though. Just think about it! Santa Clause is coming.. to town.

This is meant to be such a ‘fun and dandy’ little song, exciting kids for what is hoping to be a Jolly Holiday with a obese man dressed in red, breaking into their house by sliding down their chimeny? Im just wondering, because this is the first time Its really jumped out at me..

I dont know about you, but it seems to me like Santa is trying to play God. What other stranger can put on a fake beard, and suddenly parents are okay with putting their children on his lap?

He sees you when your sleeping. He knows when your awake!

This is starting to sound religous..

He knows if you’ve been bad or good so be good for goodness sake!¬†

Can you not see the lists matching up a little bit? Our goodness decides our rewards! If this is the case I dont know why for all those years my parents were trying to tell me that I was good enough to earn a Hello Kitty pillow, A pink and yellow flowered sleeping bag and digital cameras, TV, PC games!

 

And you sure as heck shouldnt cry and be good for goodness sake OH you better watch out. Because Santa Clause is coming to town. 

Now this is a laughing matter. And no I am not serious, but please is this not all true? Maybe Im just a little too nudged into my own hipster generation of tea drinkers and vegan eaters, but I dont think my kids are going to learn that they deserve all those Christmas presents! What did I ever do as a kid that made me think I earned all those things? Well Santa sure aint Baby Jesus thats for sure and whether we all play God at one point or not, I think Id rather have a savior than a toy work shop-pedophile.

 

I finally gave myself what I really wanted this year too! A Nikon D5100! Heres a few samples of what is to come this year…

Rodarte vs. Temperlay

I’ve got to say, when it comes to avant garde I go crazy over Rodarte and Temperlay. I’ve already shared with you my affections for the Rodarte style via Bullett magazine and Saoirse Ronan, but let me tell you its become a bit of an obsession. ¬†I am determined to skim past Rodarte for Target because truthfully they cannot expect that to satisfy my craving. Oh but before I do tell you, I must share yet snother set of beautiful pictures of Miss Ronan below..

and she¬†definitely¬†has that look does she not? She looks like a doll. Do tell me, am I the only one who saw her grow up in a day? It seems it was only yesterday she was a young tween at the premiere for Atonement! But now? She even looks young in her latest film, but looking at her outside that glass box or ‘fourth wall‘ sort of state, she is her own person. Which only makes her characters that much more impressive. She has that ability to be transformed. Something I do believe the true and deserving actor/actress would have. Oh but my opinions of Hollywood is for another day and all that wasted impressionism and symbolic character funding, but please do remind me to post on that topic later.

My words are not enough to explain the aspirations to be this sort of person. Yes i will tell you now I am my own ametuer-local-hobbying actress of some sort and i absaloutely love it. I have dreams- like all the rest of you- and I could like and die but I will say this over and over again- if there was the choice I would not just be one of the many but look at these examples above and see how the mind can work- ah sometimes I can hardly stand to see all this. Jealousy wells up inside of me. Now I cant say Im good because, well for

Favorite contant piece of Rodarte

many reasons but you know this is just not the place- not the time and all that hoopla. [My favorite piece of Rodarte is to the right here- and please do not get me wrong I am not obsessed with Ronan. She is lovely and passionate about her wonderful career but all we humans have out marks of territory. She did just so happen to be the one wearing my favorite piece it did indeed have nothing to do with her. Oh bless her heart.]

And ah, you see, it takes no time at all to turn yet another post of mine, intending other topics, into another mural of wishful talent and of my wanton. Okay but back to the topic of Rodarte and more so this time around, Temperlay! Temperlay.. well how do I put this?

 

Temperlay is a marvelous bound of workmanship, but¬†nonetheless¬†it is not nearly as captivating to my eye and particular style as Rodarte is. Though, they have amazing taste in color, and I compliment them on their shape in detail, It is not my favorite. They have their moments- oh boy they have their moments! of capturing my eye for their unique taste- but they also have their slow times of boring ventures and their pieces sometimes tend to well look like everyone else’s designs. But like I said, and below where I’ve posted in my opinion some of their best work you can see, they have their moments of craftsmanship and fashion¬†genius¬†just like Rodarte.

And I do think it is most important to see that they are therefore capable of creating works like these.

 

 

 

 

I really think below they went a little far, sort of copy-catting Louis Vuiton this year but oh well their models are working for it.

And so ends this fashion show, so have a sunny sunday, crossing our fingers for some snow here in Louisville.

Today and Tomorrow.. (Especially when Today is Turkey Day!)

So I must, must, must be done¬†apologizing¬†by now for posting so darn late in the evening and never posting well… at all! Its quite a bad habit I’ve attempted to break only a few times and as you can see each time was a large bombing least of all..

But since Im up so late I might as well admit now that Im probably not meant to get much sleep at night at all! [Happy Thanksgiving by the way]

So a few movies Ive been watching lately…

Mentionable?: Twilight [newest one out in theaters] and that would be Breaking Dawn Part 1 (so Ive been told…)

I went to see it in the Cinema with my friend Annie (Shes quite a cutie- see below red head)

Image

and of course I was curtious and said I was very excited (which I actually was- for the record..) but did lie perhaps in the fact that I did say I quite enjoyed it (it really was very.. interesting). The only thing I think I might have¬†received¬†from the whole ordeal (it¬†was¬†$5 Tuesdays.) was the acting which was quite worthy of an applause. They were very genuine I would have believed the whole story.. If I hadn’t already seen a bit more attractive side of Robert Pattison in¬†Water For Elephants¬†(2 Thumbs¬†up). So that by far does indeed end my little Rabbit Trail. NOW onto the more notable movies of my week.

THE BEACH.¬†(Cant you just hear Rowan¬†Atkinson¬†from Mr. Bean’s Holiday saying that¬†over and over¬†in your head? I can.)

Anywho, I think It applicable to say that The Beach [Leonardo Dicaprio, Daniel York, Virginie Ledoyen, and Tilda Swinton)] was %100 on that good movie track, and does indeed¬†receive¬†5 stars every watch in my book! Great way of speaking; the communication via Leo was amazing and It made me want to cry, write and think all at the same time; so I did. Captions! (VIA IMDB) Oh the 2000’s- how much I dont miss you is seen all too often.
ImageImageImage
And moving right along…
TWO documentary-reenactment-but-fairly-good-movies did I watch this week! And I am proud to say so!
First: Downfall via Netflix- which I purchased a subscription with recently and I highly recommend!
This one was fairly good and I really enjoyed the clear amount of effort put into the whole thing. Mind you, It is a foreign film so side effects may include dreaming in German afterwards.
The plot line was clear and tear jerking. One of those that makes you really question reality. Although most of the movies I watch nowadays are.. (pictures via Picassa/Google)
ImageImageImage
IIt truly is worthy of all those awards its winning. Truly a beautiful film based on Hitlers last 12 days on earth.
Second: The Diary of Anne Frank (2009) 
Truly a definite tear jerker, it stopped my heart but kept it beating. The sweet girl, bless her heart. Watch the thing then go on and research pictures of each of the people online and just sit there in awe. This is definitely one Id recommend. Its the most simple, innocent films Ive ever seen that made a crater sized impact on my heart as Anne Frank always does. It is all too real- and not to make the whole thing into a drama because as you can imagine the genuine reverence I have for the story, but to see it through modern eyes, this film does a lovely job of portraying this dynamic.
ImageImage
Comparison Worthy? I think yes.
Image
Image Sweet boy, in the movie, he was..
And last but certainly not least, and most recent at that was
The Edge of Love- Keira Knightly & Cilian Murphy!
Im not going to spoil the ending as I want to so badly, but I must say, you are not disappointed. Because halfway through I was so tempted to turn the darn thing off! It was a brilliant show I say! but really it comes a point in some films where I say: Lovely picture, sweet mother, but please have some decency and have some mercy for the people watching!
But finally in the end… well It works out Ill have you know. And I have some lovely screenshots for you!!¬†Absolute¬†best!
