Volume II

It's been over 2.5 years since I've posted anything in this blog. I've decided to resurrect it, albeit haphazardly. 
My immediate thoughts drift towards posting more than just fashion/clothing. Since the formation of this blog my interests and passions have definitely expanded and I plan on sharing a lot more of them on here. This may or may not include; music, art, film, writing, books, goings on around NYC, restaurants, photography and daily life. Some of these may be my own sad attempts, most will be borrowed. 
Enough of this explanation. Here is where my head is at lately: 

Music on repeat:

Bjork. Bjork all the time. Mostly Debut at the moment, but I also have a soft spot for Vespertine. Funnily enough I was never into Bjork until maybe a year ago. About 4 years ago I was all about EDM. As that has mostly faded into the background Bjork's unusual combination of pop and electronic has filled that void while also introducing me to creativity unbound. She is truly inspiring.

Eric Clapton's first solo album, 461 Ocean Boulevard. I've read from some sources that Clapton hides behind his band in this album and doesn't fully push himself to do what he's capable of. But honestly, I don't care. It's just enjoyable and hits a lot of emotions and states of mind for me. Plus he's a legend.

My interest in Eric Clapton was spawned from watching the two part George Harrison documentary by Martin Scorsese and learning of the Harrison-Pattie Boyd- Clapton love triangle. She was the muse to two of the greatest musicians of all time; fascination ensued.

Pattie Boyd and George Harrison

 On my never ending, always evolving wish list:

Isabel Marant Holden Sandals
BAO BAO Issey Miyake

Looking forward to seeing this in a few weeks. Steinbeck is my all time favorite author and I have an obvious fan-girl crush on James Franco. Clearly the two combined will be nothing short of blissful for me.

This past weekend I re-watched Taxi Driver. What a good decision. Travis Bickle is both simple and complex. My head becomes so filled up when I think of what to say about this movie that all my thoughts go blank.

Lars Von Trier garners mixed reviews from everyone. I've read that he's a genius, a misogynist, a terrible film maker, a trailblazer, on and on. I've never seen any of his movies, but I definitely want to see Nymphomaniac; Vol I. I've read a lot about it, watched a few trailers and no matter what I see or read it only makes me interested in what kind of reaction I'll have. So I plan on seeing it this weekend.

The New Yorker
So there they are, my current interests in a concise list. Hopefully there will be plenty more to come.
