once again, it's time for me to recommend some things to you.
on my coffee table this week...
book: one day by david nicholls
once again, i bought this as a holiday read.
i know nothing much about it, only that i read something in the observer the
other week where it said that this is one of those 'must read' books.
the lady journalist wrote that her husband borrowed the book and that he was
sobbing like a girl while reading it !
( i bet he was made up that she mentioned that in her article )
it's also been made into a film with anne hathaway as the female lead,
which has supposedly caused a bit of an uproar with regard to her accent.
anyway, i'm intrigued. it's on my table and i'll read it soon and get back to you.
cd: 'do androids dream of electric beats ?' by unkle
this is like revisiting an old friend.
from back in the day when unkle were good. a 3 disc set, artwork by futura 2000
and some corking sounds. great for listening to while ironing your favourite
t-shirts, or perhaps while you're sitting on an eames lounger eating
chicken fried rice, chips and curry sauce ?
directed by marc evans.
i've been waiting for this film to be released on dvd for over 2 years now.
i did some headshots for an actress back in 2009 and she told me she'd just been
making a film in wales with duffy. she also told me something extremely personal
which i could have done without her mentioning... but that's another story !
it's set half in wales and half in argentina. half in welsh, half in spanish.
i like that the dvd chapters are in welsh too...
to seeing some beautifully filmed exotic lanscapes ( wales, not argentina )
duffy acting ( but not singing ) and to seeing the actress i photographed at
whitfield towers who told me something i wish she hadn't told me !
