a single man

I saw the kings speech a while back, but I must mention A Single Man.

Colin firth and that TERRIBLE actor from 'about a boy' and 'skins' (...I can even be bothered to google his name! ....) starred in Tom Fords (Gucci) directorial debue.  I must warn you, the film is pretty odd (in all meanings of the word odd )

but, rather shallowly (not a word, I know) I must rave on about the hair, make-up and fashion, which is or course Tom fords Forte. very 60's and 70's. Big hair, eye-liner, pale skin, red lipstick, geek glasses, suits. Its rather cool. 







 excellent casting, and they should have won an Oscar for hair and make-up. Actually the Oscars for this film was a very long time ago, so they may have even got an Oscar for it! 

anyway, if you're bored watch it. But only if you are bored!

Stella Vine

is fucking amazing!

I love her paintings. The colour, subject matter & naive drawing..http://www.stellavine.com/


....its just brilliant and reminds me of American Folk Art. I have blogged about American folk in the past, but when I moved my blog the images never came with it!

anyway, Stella vines paintings remind me of Rev. Howard Finster ...

Howard Finster was an artist from Summerville, Georgiahe built a  garden park museum in Trion, Georgia in the late 1940s. It featured an exhibit on the inventions of mankind in which Finster planned to display one of everything that had ever been invented, models of houses and churches, a pigeon flock and a duck pond until he ran out of room and them moved to the Plant Farm Museum to show 'Gods wonderful creations'
