Gevonden op Marktplaats recap #2, Rembrandt Reality, and more. Lots more.

It’s Sunday morning, 7AM. You’re probably sleeping, and rightfully so! I woke up at the crack of dawn and decided to just get out of bed and do some spontaneous blogging. Probably not the wisest of decisions because I have a zillion other things I really should be doing instead, but there you have it. I have a recap of my favorite ... Read More »

Paris, Texas

Paris, Texas

Do you ever get the feeling that you want to disappear? Just leave everything and everyone behind and poof…you’re gone. In the America of the 1980’s that was still a viable option.

Woody Allen’s Interiors – It’s Just a Vase I’m Going Through

Let’s face it, the biggest cause of divorce is marriage. In Woody Allen’s Interiors, the stately Manhattanite of advanced style Eve is slowly abandoned by her husband.
