My Inspirations for July

31 Jul

I watched a lot of movies/TV-shows in July and I’ve discovered some new ones too; I’m in love with the sitcom Blakcadder, nothing better than British humor, Only Fools and Horses (which I basically watch once a year) and Merlin; I’ve never really noticed this show but it’s amazing and I’m on the season four now. I’ve also watched an old movie The Women (1939) starring Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, Rosalind Russell and Joan Fontaine (and I’m telling you, the clothes are amazing). Ans yes, I’ve finally watched the movie Barbara (2012) which James Dean Bradfield recommended on a concert; it stars Nina Hoss (vocals on Europa geht durch Mich by Manics) and it’s set in 1980. in the East Germany; the movie really captured the atmosphere and it’s interesting to see the other side because in movies like Christiane F: Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo you see the West Berlin. I’ve read a book named Tristessa by Kerouac and it’s very interesting and sad, though filled with vivid descriptions of Mexico City. Next: Satori in Paris. As far as art goes, no doubt that this was the month of Van Gogh; I’ve written three posts about him and I honestly sympathise with this man, I wish I could have met him; that amazing soul that left us with this peculiar paintings.

P.S. I’ve bought a book by the name Syd Barrett and Pink Floyd: The Dark Globe and I’m super excited (it really is the best literature regarding Syd Barrett)
