Valentino: The Last Emperor

I am completely in love with both Valentino and Giancarlo after this documentary. Wow...Valentino is the persona I want to grow into when I get older. Their relationship is so adorable and amazing. They have been friends, lovers, business partners and creators together for fifty years. I look up to their relationship and the fact that they never got married but have an everlasting love for one another. I would have loved to see Valentino kiss Giancarlo. I felt like Giancarlo was so deserving of a moment of Valentino's outwardly show of affection. Giancarlo is an absolutely amazing life partner to have it seems like. He seemed so careful, so compassionate, so trustworthy, so stylish, so intelligent, so fun and such a hard worker. Valentino is so talented, so powerful yet so sensitive and in need of someone as grounding as Giancarlo. They both had adorable personalities and their combination is matchless!!!

Klaus Nomi....a brilliant artist!

He really reminds me of Edward Scissor hands.

According to Wiki, "Nomi was known for his bizarrely theatrical live performances, heavy make-up, unusual costumes, and a highly stylized signature hairdo which flaunted a receding hairline." His voice and what he chooses to sing about in terms of it beginning so his own art and expression of the uniqueness of his soul along with the information above is precisely why he belongs in my blog! I'm so happy to have found him. He is incredible!

Interview with Lady Gaga

This is why I love her so much. She is so aware of her journey and experience and knows where she is going and doesn't take it for granted. It is all a part of her larger vision and all that will encompass that.

Mylène Farmer - Sans logique

Mylene Farmer singing "Innamoramento"...She's one of my favorite artists and a music video master.

She has made music videos and had concerts that cost as much as some films. Her music videos are like little movies. Short format storytelling in combination with compelling music is one of the most perfect expressions of a thought or concept in my opinion.

Andrei Tarkovsky's "Mirror"

The film is simply brilliant. It seems like every shot is based on a guiding intuition that is in sync with his emotions provoked through his memories. That is why it makes sense even if it's a nonconventional method of storytelling. I strongly identify with this as a filmmaker because I have had little schooling in regards to how to tell a story through a proven method or formula and never want to adopt a method of storytelling other than my own. I believe that this is what distinguishes us in the end and makes us better storytellers. Some, of course, need more practice than others to hone in on their craft.

France Gall singing Ella of my favorite songs in the world!!!

This song reminds me of the three years I lived in Geneva, Switzerland. It reminds me of my beautiful parents.

Lady Gaga...Bad Romance...She's inimitable!!!!

My feelings in regards to her and this video can't be put into words.

Bat for music video for "Pearl's Dream"

I LOVE this music video!! It's beautiful.
