This movie. Guilty pleasure right here.
Hello, all you lovely people. I know I rarely ever post anymore; real life has got the better of me these days. But I’m here to share some pretty big news. Leo (yes, DiCaprio!) may be coming to my city to shoot a new western film.
He’s been ‘round these parts before - part of Christopher Nolan’s 2010 film Inception was shot in Calgary.
To boot, it’s directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu whom I adore as a filmmaker. You might recognize his name as the big head honcho of many impressive feature films: Amores Perros, 21 Grams, Babel (my personal favourite of his), and Biutiful.
If any Calgarians, Albertans, or Canadians…actually, scratch that… if anyone is interested in the buzz surrounding Leo and this percolating motion picture, you can visit this article from The Calgary Herald.
PS: I really do hope to be back in the tumblr blogosphere soon. I miss my movies, my followers, and dabbling in what I’d call my favourite pastime.
She was Lo, plain Lo, in the morning, standing four feet ten in one sock. She was Lola in slacks. She was Dolly at school. She was Dolores on the dotted line. But in my arms she was always Lolita.
We have decided how sad it is for other people that they cannot appreciate our genius.

“Evil’s just destructive? Then storms are evil, if it’s that simple. And we have fire, and there there’s hail. Underwriters lump it all under ‘Acts of God.” ― Thomas Harris, The Silence of the Lambs
Glad to hear! Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy tumbling :) And on adding another blogger, I think unfortunately no, because of my past experience of running a tumblr with one or several other people. :( I’ll soon get back to regular posts, but for the time being I would prefer to keep it a solo-run blog.
But thanks for the interest and thanks for your patronage.

Hey filmfuckers, did you know?
This is probably old news to the many Lana Del Rey fans on my blr, but I feel the need to acknowledge this awesomeness anyway. If you didn’t know already, the sultry singing starlet will be featured in Disney’s upcoming film Maleficent, covering “Once Upon a Dream” from the original animated Sleeping Beauty (1959) we all know and love. The song was originally performed by Mary Costa, who provided the operatic voice of Princess Aurora.
Apparently Angelina Jolie, who stars as the titular character, suggested LDR for the job. You can listen to it here if you haven’t yet!
Feel free to discuss:
Are your prospects for the movie now higher knowing that such an awesome artist contributes to the mood with her music?
How stoked are you that Lana is finally getting widespread recognition through her soundtrack work?
