The Darjeeling Limited

Is it possible to fall in love with a movie?

Words cannot describe how much I *loved* The Darjeeling Limited. Everything about this movie was perfect. Watching it was akin to something like a catharsis.

I'm not sure why but Wes Anderson is just the most amazing living auteur; his movies are the most evocative creations known to man. I just cannot understand how he taps into such a pure vein of feeling and rhetoric that many films do not begin to approach.

The discourse of brotherhood/family and parental responsibility just tap into something inside of me. It's like the movies touch upon my own familial history and weave this amazing pallet of emotion I cannot begin to approach.

If you haven't seen Darjeeling, Rushmore, Royal Tenanbaums, Life Aquatic or Bottle Rocket; you haven't lived.

His use of music is evocative of Scorcese and Tarantino but don't let that put you off.

Keeping with the animal theme, here's another of Buffy.


It was raining cats and dogs today ;)

Today has been a bit of a quandry.


If I was a llama, I'd look a bit puzzled like the one in this image.

Cats do rock and after a funny old week, this one happens to keep me sane with her surly attitude and cynical gaze.


Buffy is truly the ruler of our household.

In the honour of being stuck in the middle of rural Staffs today, here's a picture taken in the middle of nowhere in Morocco.


Don't you just love being a pedestrian when there are no pavements and traffic is zooming by at 50mph?

Yep, another NYC shot as I am missing the place bigtime.


The Empire State Building at sunset really is an evocative sight.

One of my favourite NYC landmarks.


It's been abused during the movies Cloverfield and Zombie Flesheaters but there were no zombies that day. Too warm for them. Thank god for the dude selling water halfway across as it felt every liquid had bled from my pores.
