Youssef Nabil

Met my neighbour in the supermarket last week and he told me he was going to Paris to see a photo exhibition in the "Institut du Monde Arabe". He told me to look it up and he was especially thrilled about the work by Youssef Nabil, a photographer born in Cairo and now living in New York City. His handpainted prints are an hommage to the old Egyptian movies. These two are really my favourites and are both on display at the exhibition. More information here.

Summer Hit: Christophe Maé - Je me lâche

Hurray for this personal summer hit of 2010! Normally Peter and I play our iPod on vacation. And yes, we're sick fucks for playing certain artists in certain areas. That's why we name passes in the French mountains by the artist instead of the real name (by the way, the Alcazar pass was lovely this year, but the Sophie Ellis Bextor pass was closed unfortunately).

This year we had the radio on. We tuned in to the french NRJ station, which is known to us as the big sponsor for Madonna's concerts in Paris. NRJ knows how to create a summer hit! They play about 5 songs over and over through the day. Unlike Dutch stations who proudly declare they never play the same song twice during a day.

Well, one of the songs was Je Me Lâche by Christophe Maé. That song was forced into our ears the most I guess so I officially declare it as Summer Hit of 2010!

Last night we went to see Inception by Christopher Nolan. I don't know if it's because I hadn't seen a blockbuster in months (maybe years?) but I was blown away by this movie! Sure, the special effects were awesome, although most of it was given away in trailers already.

The thing that I liked the most is how the director created a reality which didn't need any explanation, even though it was a different reality than ours. I think because this whole movie is about dreams and dreams within dreams it's easy for me as a very active dreamer to relate to this new reality.

Oh and the cast! Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been one of my favourites for years and who doesn't love Ellen Page? But this movie also introduced me to Tom Hardy, an actor I never heard from, but really made this movie easy on the eyes. Googling him results in a wide range of photos. From scary, to heart-throbbing, to damn sexy, as you can see below. I always get compliments about my lips, but I guess those people complimenting me never saw Tom Hardy's lips! Yum!

Sports Heroes by Sam Scott Schiavo

A tribute to the sportsmen of yesteryear, when it was just some blood, sweat , tears, natural talent and lots of hair wax.

Words. They Cut Like a Knife

Madonna for Dolce & Gabbana

Obviously nothing new to you, but very new to me, since I was on a phoneless and internetless vacation. Madonna did her follow-up campaign for Dolce & Gabbana. Still in the Italian Housewife looks, but definately a little more sexy. Simple and lovely.
