mia wasikowska for miu miu, spring/summer 2012.

Filed under: clothes, french, gainsbourg, music, quote of the day

“to me, they were really just my parents. we had a lovely life. we went to private school. but they had quite an eccentric life, going into nightclubs and coming back when we got up to go to school. that was kind of weird. but apart from that, we had a very normal life. they had simple tastes. their idea was to always keep your feet on the ground, so that’s what we did. i was able to go on the street, and it was normal when people came up to them and asked for autographs. it was just part of everyday life. i just learned through their way of living – through all of that fame to always be happy when someone comes up to ask for an autograph. people really loved them in a very honest way. it wasn’t until very late that i understood what my father was writing about. i had lived with his songs all my life, but i never really understood the lyrics, or what went into them. of course, it is special because now i know that my father was a genius. but he lived in a very casual way.”

– charlotte gainsbourg in interview magazine, feb. 2012. she’s so chill; it’s impressive.
more photos and the rest of the interview are here.

here are some blogs i like. this is long overdue.

party on damen, the violet hour’s bartenders’ blog:
recipes & goings-on in the world of libations.

nerd boyfriend;
or, how to make the man in your life dress like your dream date.

tóxico cultura:
well-curated ideas, photography, & inspiration desde méxico,
“because creativity is not a luxury. it is indispensable.”

paleofuture: the future that never was.
the convergence of history and sci-fi = i have serious blogger jealousy over this one.

drinking with rules,
a concerted effort towards giving your drunkenness rhyme and reason:
gonna be famous. you heard it here first.

i’ll probably think of some more in a bit.
