(this is a detail of the full piece)
Despite that second room, which is supposedly our "study" being an absolute pigsty, no storage, books in piles on the floor (because I needed to find a few of them) mess... I don't actually like being in there to be honest, but I am slowly getting use to it (this weekend is D-Day for mess and should be all sorted with new, long desk and a bit of storage for the materials I have everywhere)...
I have a pile of moleskines on my desk running upto about 10. Some are mine waiting to be sent off, some are other people's that I should be working in and sending off. Oppsie!
So I picked one at random and found myself with a book from one of my favourite exchanges MolyX-71 : the music exchange. Ooli's choice of music is Asa Chang & Junray
A little quirky and crazy. She supplied us with the album Tsu Gi Ne Pu as well, with it's mix of Japanese and Indian musical styles. This is my entry.
Next moleskine is? Or maybe I should start Catherine Campbell's piece that I am looking at with a very terrified look on my face. What if I mess it up?
Moleskine Exchanges grasped me by the throat...

I had two moleskines on my desk (one a bit longer than this one), and today, as I have been at home for a few days, (starting to rattle about a bit now), I decided to just put on the album, in this case it was At Home by Avishai Cohen. It was very automatic and hope Marina is happy with it.

I was invited to join the group for Moly X71. We have put in place a rule of ultimate interaction. We are all working through the whole of our books, a little bit here and a little there... set to a piece of music or an album of our choice. Mine is Dominique A's "L'Horizon". We see what everyone comes up with. Have a look at the blog (linked above) if you are intrigued.
chosen for an exhibition in Colette

I just received an email telling me that they want to include a photo of mine in an exhibition at Colette in Paris, in conjuction with the Lomography Diana / Colette book launch (I assume).
I can't embed a youtube video but go here to see a little report about it. It is very true it is hard to not walk out of that place without something.
... I miss France sometimes.
This is: a list of my favourite films

Before I even start here: I have always loved watching films. I was a singing, dancing kind of kid and watched tons of old singing/dancing type movies, but the one I really remember watching a lot was "Tommy". Yes, my parents let me watch that, not just once either.
I remember also watching a series you couldn't get on DVD until recently called The Faerie Tale Theatre. Then there was Labyrinth with David Bowie and The Dark Crystal... moving onto when I was a teenager, it was all The Blues Brothers, Ghostbusters and Edward Scissorhands.
I could explain my obsessive movie watching for hours!
Above, what I haven't mentioned: The Year My Voice Broke, The Wings of Desire and although I haven't watched The Royal Tenenbaums a lot, I believe I love it as much as Lost in Translation. I could gush about Tim Burton too, but I'll spare you all.
