This is the best thing that was ever made so just turn off the planet now because we can all go home. Thank you, it’s been a great show.
Spot the differences.

Oh, god. I’m in Reims right now.
“You have to question a cinematic culture which preaches artistic expression, and yet would support a decision that is clearly a product of a patriarchy-dominant society, which tries to control how women are depicted on screen. The MPAA is okay supporting scenes that portray women in scenarios of sexual torture and violence for entertainment purposes, but they are trying to force us to look away from a scene that shows a woman in a sexual scenario which is both complicit and complex. It’s misogynistic in nature to try and control a woman’s sexual presentation of self. I consider this an issue that is bigger than this film.”

I didn’t before, but now I TOTALLY GET why so many people are in love with Ryan Gosling. Wow.
Pictures of some of my favourite pieces in the Pompidou Centre (the Paris museum of modern art). If you click to enlarge the photos, I’ve added some totally useless commentary. This was by far my favourite thing that we saw in Paris. It contains some really wonderful, exciting work from artists who are still living and everything! (And some really wonderful, exciting work from artists who are dead, but, you know…)
I was having a mopey morning so I baked Adipose shortbread. Day has instantly improved.
You can get yourself an Adipose cookie cutter and other geeky bake ware from this etsy store.
hat tip to youareasonginmyheart for sending in this post!
This sounds so good right now…
We weren’t supposed to take photos inside the Musée d’Orsay, but I took this one anyway. Because I’m a rebel. …Actually, it was because everyone else was doing it.
I liked this art museum better than the Louvre - less crowded and we saw some amazing Van Goghs there - but it was still a little austere for my taste. One of my favourite exhibits was the “Photography” exhibit, which, from what I saw, was basically porn from the early 1900’s. It was interesting because the photos were supposed to be extremely shocking back then, and, by today’s standards, they were tame. Soft-core porn, at best. :P
Hey, so I’m in France. And have been for the last four days. I originally intended to post blogs and/or photos every day I was here, but that sort of fell through, so here are my best photos of the Louvre!
P.S. The Louvre is not that great. Too busy, and less exciting than everyone expects. The Pompidou Centre is way more fun.
P.P.S. There are brief explanations when you click for the full size pictures.
P.P.P.S. France is super awesome.
