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 Ella...one 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 Lashes....new music video for "Pearl's Dream"

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