The Dog Days

I can't wait to see this movie:

In part because it looks interesting, and I now want to read the book before it comes out.

A couple weeks ago I was desperate to go to Finland, I think this week I am yearning for India.

But also because of the song playing in the background. I immediately recognized it as one of my new finds of the year, as anyone who has heard my ring tone for the last two month can attest, Florence and the Machine. I first listened to her EP A Lot of Love, A Lot of Blood (I love that title!) back in January after I heard her first single "Kiss with a Fist". She also came out with a full length album called Lungs in 2009. I love the bluesy quality of some of her songs like the one in this interview, my favorite part is in the interview when she says, "I like to go in the woods and be feral". I am probably also swayed by the fact that some of her song have gruesome titles, which is a great lead into my other new discovery...

A french company that hand screens tights that fit my love of the grotesque to a T.

I absolutely love these--

These are some of my favorites, but they have a lot of others on their website, including tights that gives the illusion that ants are swarming up your legs. They are going to start selling them at Lille in Portland--too bad on all the websites I've seen they run upwards of 30 euros!

I'm just glad Julia is staring in a movie again! Although I read this book and it annoyed me (I think all she needed was religion!) but the movie looks good.

I've heard mixed reviews of the book, but it seems like a quick read so I think I read it for myself before I see the movie. I love Julia too, she is just so classy!
