One of my favourite movies ever is 'Before Sunrise' by Richard Linklater.
I remember being taken to see it whilst spending the summer in Brooklyn, right around the time the sequel was coming out, so I would have been about sixteen.
It's simple and heartbreaking and great.
Ten years after the original was made, the sequel 'Before Sunset' came out. I urge you to go see both of these movies right away! Maybe leave a week between watching the first one and the second one out of respect for all those people who had to wait ten years to find out what happened between Jesse and Celine!
Below is a poem that a street poet writes for the two main characters. He tells them to give him a word and their choice is 'milkshake'.
It's been really lovely to read all of your wishes so far. Some are funny, some are heartbreaking. I'm sure those of you that have left a wish have also enjoyed reading what others have wished for. Keep up the good work guys!
and then I saw 'everything' - well, not really, it was more just a lot of great old Victorian era stuff. They had a great collection of strange dolls, taxidermy, old 'freak-show' posters and some of those fortune telling machines like in 'Big'! Unfortunately there was a strict no photography rule and I was heartbroken!
We saw this in the window of a shop that seemed to only stock things that were really cool and probably really expensive.
This guy was in there too. Look how excited he is!
I love the tiles in the Camden tube station.
Feet, waiting for the tube.
I was then taken to a really great cafe/bar which used to be a Vespa servicing station, then they decided to get a coffee machine to serve their waiting customers and it evolved into this really cool place with tons of old Vespa paraphernalia.
Lovely lights in the Vespa bar. I really love when people who know a city well take you to these hidden gems.
Unfortunately I didn't take many more photos, for two reasons : one being that I was sure I would drop my camera/phone and two being that I am slightly paranoid about waving my phone around all the time!
it's one of those grey days here, where you feel like you're in a giant tupperware. i really can live without these gloomy british january days. it's funny how much it affects my moods...and sinuses!!
i would much rather be horse riding on sunny plains somewhere.
here are a few photos from the past week.
i went to a chocolate cafe with some girls from my class. the chocolate was OK but what I really loved was this piece of furniture!
we had peanut butter at home but no jam, and what's the point of peanut butter unless you can have pb&j? bonus: the label is beautifully vintage inspired.
preemptive easter chocolate.
this was taken shortly after the whole structure was dropped on the floor and we lost a lot of good cranes in the process. i have to admit, i did cry over it for a little bit. and then a few days later i broke a few more. heartbreaking.
rounded off the week with a shirley temple made by my bartender boyfriend.
