Q-Pot Chocolate Smart Phone

Who comes up with this stuff? Apparently Q-Pot. Why does one's smart phone have to look like a bar of chocolate? It's definitely frivolous, and I wonder if its decadent chocolatey exterior belies a shoddy and inefficient cellular technology--but who knows, it might just be the perfect phone. Anyways, do I want one? Yes! Check out Q-Pot's website for yourself: Q-Pot

Romeo and Juliet Goofing Around

In preparation for Valentine's Day, I decided to indulge my acute nostalgia for Zeffirelli's Romeo and Juliet (1968)--the last time I saw this film was in 8th grade! Let me just confess, I've been completely obsessed with this film for the past week, scouring the web for interviews and photographs of Whiting and Hussey. Not to mention my rediscovery of "What is a Youth?"!

French Pop

Over the winter break, I did a crash course in sixties French pop--I can't believe it took me this long to discover the music of Francoise Hardy, Brigitte Bardot, and France Gall! Also am loving 80s singer Etienne Daho.
Francoise Hardy

My Favs:
Francoise Hardy - Comment te dire adieu, Mon amie la rose
Marianne Faithfull - Hier ou demain
France Gall - Les sucettes, Laisse tomber les filles
Brigitte Bardot- Moi je joue
Etienne Daho - Le grand sommeil, Paris le Flore
Jacqueline Taieb - Le printemps à Paris
Sylvie Vartan - Cette lettre là
