foreign films, taking the long road home, evening heat (and a new piece for #HuffPo)


we had the most delicious day yesterday – packed with meetings and interesting people and a drive down mullholland drive and a Foreign Film from 1972 and who-we-are-in-RL had another piece published (which we thought was rather Saucy and Surprising in its use of Dating Tips with Marketing Campaigns – whodda-thought? Well, she did, clearly and that’s splendid).


Bien sûr as they say in all the best parisian-style cafes around the world.

we took the (very) long way home. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

because we could.

before you go!

justaddattitude wrote a very lovely and poignant and deeply interesting piece here about media-that-is-sociable and we just wanted to share it in case you didn’t get it in your post box today.

  1. Dearest G
    Alain Delon, Mulholland Drive and the most perfect looking public library (judging by that sign).
    Now that does sound like quite a day!

    1. the inside of the Library was a Tiny Bit Disappointing.

      but that’s because the perfect library (which we’ve never seen in RL) is Trinity, Dublin.

      and it’s hard for others to match up to that.

  2. Team G! I love LOVE Un Flic! It is in my personal film library of over 300 films and it is up there with Purple Noon and Joy House as a favorite Alain Delon film. What a great post…and that HEAT! It is even hot up here in S.F…. Silent Screen Star, Norma Talmadge’s little wedding cake house on Roosevelt even seems to be sagging under the temperatures….and no one in San Francisco has air conditioning… the fog usually does that service for us.
    Cheers !

    1. so pleased to find another Foreign Film Fan of Un Flic!

      they’ve remastered the original print so it’s extraordinary.

      all those dark gray parisian skies and belted raincoats and hats over dark glances.


  3. Who you are in RL is very wise! My daughter tells me of a series called Community; much of the fun of it seems to be the online interaction between fans and writers. Although I don’t think this saved the show. Do you Tumblr? That is communication I don’t quite understand; seems to work on reblogging.

do say something - do :-)
