My computer is freaking out so I am just posting a link to this fabulous site:
(Found via the lovely Ez at Creature Comforts)
It is a free site that allows you to bookmark items from around the internet in one (or many) lists. You can create wish lists, shopping lists, gift idea lists, you name it–all with a toolbar button. Wow. Give it a try! (I don’t get paid to say that. Wish I did…)
Another patented “Tanya’s 4-step Tutorial to a More Amazing Life”
- Rent The Fall (2006 film by Tarsem Singh).
- Revel at the gorgeousness.
- Enjoy the action and loveliness.
- Thank me for changing your life.
In all seriousness, the film is rated R (though it is pretty tame) and if you think “an action-adventure version of The Wizard of Oz crossed with Amelie” sounds good, then this is probably right up your alley. In one of life’s little coincidences I had seen a preview for The Fall and was absolutely smitten with the beautiful trailer. Then, unbeknownst to me, my friend Sheasy had recommended the very same movie to my friend Jen. And thanks to the magic of Netflix it was waiting at her house when we got together for a night of craftniess. Needless to say I crafted nada. No sewing, no sketching, no list-writing. Because I was glued to the screen, the most adorable little girl actor, and all of the magic and heartbreak. I don’t know why this didn’t receive a mainstream release here, but it certainly deserves some attention.
Let me know what you think!
