so 2nd week of senior year has begun. honestly, it's already a pretty great year. minus the fiasco of losing my wallet (MBMJ too ): ) everything has been smooth sailing. i planned out all my college junk, and am currently attempting to write the essay. Writing a college essay is actually ridiculously hard. It's supposed to be short and "represent" you, but I still feel like I haven't done anything note worthy in my life. I'm supposed to want to be a writer shouldn't this come easy?! Oh well. So I decided to dedicate this entry to two things:art and movies. why may you ask?!?
Well first of all, i take AP art history and that's all we learn about! Despite my little knowledge of art i wanted show my favorite works of art. and second this weekend i watched annie hall and absolutely loved it. it was funny and witty and seemed kind of timeless, considering my mom and i were laughing at the same jokes. And plus i take American Film and Culture so i have to watch movies and write reports every week.
so my favorite art!
guernica by picasso.
birth of venus by botticelli
obvi some warhol. my friend actually got me this book "all tomorrow's parties" which has a bunch of pictures from the factory, it's awesome. plus i love the velvet underground prompting the use of this picture.
marcel dzama. really i could pick anything since i discovered him over the summer and fell in love with his art. it's all kind of surreal and creepy but really awesome. hopefully i'll get to see some of his work irl.
so far that's it for art. once i become an ap art historian i'll be able to write long, articulate statements about every piece (sike!).
now on to movies!
on a side note, diane keaton has great style in this movie. she has the androgynous look down pat.
favorite movie ever. hands down.
the royal tenenbaums:
margot tenenbaum! sigh. the lacoste polo dresses, fur coats, eye liner, and barrettes. i want to be her for halloween, or forever. and the scene where richie tries to kill himself? with needle in the hay? perfect. (on a side note, either/or is one of my fav. albums and the biggest lie is my best friend and i's sad song)
i just saw this this summer and thought it was great (although my friend did not). it wasn't typical but it had a nice aesthetic and the 90's rap in it was great.
unfortunately that's all for now, sat class calls. and GOSSIP GIRL TONIGHT! chuck bass. yes.
hopefully soon i'll make a post about my fashionz since i'm still working on it. plus i'm coping with some serious break up business so i'm pretty much an unmotivated piece of shit haha.
