Shutter island

Shutter island - amazing! Very very very nice! It was really creepy and frightening, but so cool! Leonardo Dicaprio was awesome, and the music was really creepy and loud, which was nice. I don't know what to say about it really, and I don't want to give anything away. So, just watch it!

Best sing/dance scenes in films p.4: FOOTLOOSE

Okay, tis finally time to cut loose...FOOTLOOSE!
Kevin fucking Bacon dancing to Kenny pissing Loggins. (This does not mean that the "Footloose" dance scene of the film "Footloose" from 1984 directed by Herbert Ross is in fact the best dance scene of the film, it is, I believe, impossible to choose between the dance scenes of this film... we love 'the angry dance' and 'lets hear it for the boy' just as much)

Ps: since the clip with Will and Kevin Bacon dancing footloose together has been removed from youtube, here's Will, Grace and the fabulous Sandra Bernhard singing "The Midnight train"

Found out this morning that the Cosby show is back on tv from 7-8 in the morning! Perfect! I love it and i really love it in the morning, it reminds me of a summer when I watched it every morning!

Last monday I went to the Mika concert in KB Hallen in Copenhagen. It was absolutely brilliant! There were zombie-girls, giant shoes, trashcan-stomp, and a coat in the style of a flasher. Mika was wearing amazing glittery shoes and a beautiful suit and butterfly. I do not in any way regret buying this ticket. It was so cool being in the crowd, jumping and dancing around, while golden confetti rained down upon us and enormous balloons flew all around! It was a fantastic experience! He played almost a ll the songs, old and new.

Cherisse Osai who plays the drums was übercool and really talented.

I'll upload some pictures once my friend sends 'em to me, but for now here's a clip from the concert!

Best sing/dance scenes in films p.3: Sailor'n'Lula

Here's the lovely sailor and lula of Lynch's "Wild at heart" dancing. Nick Cage singing "Trrrreat me like a foooool" gets me every time, this is so amazingly romantic and sexy. I love this film, it is one of the 5 best films of all time. Hope you like it. I know I do.

Best sing/dance scenes in films p.2: Butterfly

Here's the lapdance scene from Tarantinos "Death Proof" with Butterfly (Vanessa Ferlito) dancing to The Coasters "Down in Mexico". The reason that this clip is among the best dance scenes is partly the music but also very much the confidence and charisma of this incredibly sexy girl. The character called Stuntman Mike (Kurt Russell) is the sleazy old man that gets the lapdance.

Best sing/dance scenes in films p.1: Michael and James

The wonderful film "Party Monster" based on the novel "Disco bloodbath" by one James st. James, about Michael Alig's club kids and the murder of drugdealer Angel. This is a wonderful scene where Michael helps James to feel better by dancing to Stacey Q's "Two of Hearts". (Macaulay Culkin and Seth Green - fabulous) enjoy.

The Wonderful Works of French and Saunders

French and Saunders

Vicar of Dibley, Vicar Geraldine, Alice and Hugo, and the rest of the cast.

ab-fab, Eddy and Patsy

I feel it is time to talk about two of the worlds most brilliant comedians; Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders. The show "French and saunders" first aired in 1987 and in my opinion the ladies have mastered to keep up the high standards throughout. My favorite of the older sketches is this one called schoolgirls.Their fantastic as arrogant students, its hilarious. I love their parodies as well, particularly the ones on Björk, Boyzone, Cher and the ABBA film "Mama Mia".
Then there's "The Vicar of Dibley" with French in the leading role as Geraldine, the slightly smug Vicar of a small town called Dibley. the cast is hilarious particularly Emma Chambers (known from her role as the amazingly funny sister Honey in Notting Hill) who plays Alice Tinker the church's verger. She is very naïve and wears some amazing outfits. One of my favorite scenes from the series, it is the scene where Alice marries Hugo. This clip however is another hilarious bit about Alice wonderings upon the sibject of butter and the product called "I cant believe its not butter".
And last but not least "Ab-Fab". With Saunders in the role as drunken fashion victim no. 1, Eddy and Joanna Lumley as drunken fashion victim nr. 2 Patsy. Known for overusing the words "Sweetie" and "Darling", chainsmoking and bingedrinking, Patsy and Eddy are the perfect tv characters in my opinion (at times Patsy resembles "Will and Grace" character Karen Walker a bit). Julia Sawalha (known from BBC's "Pride and Prejudice" in the role as lydia, and also from the later episodes, and not quite as fantastic as the early ones, of "Jonathan Creek") plays the role of Eddy's daughter Saffy. Also Jane Horrocks ("Little Voice") plays Eddy's assistant Bubble, a character so utterly dimwitted and silly - lovely. Here's a clip of Patsy and Eddy being completely wasted and thinking a mobile is a shoe.
AB-Fab indeed.

Une fille gentille

Today, me and my friend took a "second-hand-and-flea-marked-tour" round Nørrebro. I bought a black seethrough dress/blouse, a coverall, a gold backpack, a Barbra Streisand record and this book called Angelica or in my French version Angélique. It's Canadian and made by Helen Lucas. It's about an angel, who's trying to figure out her identity. There are amazing illustrations on every second page and text (not more than 15 words per page) on the others. The drawings are brilliant and you can just look at then for ages! I really like the way she draws buts, breasts and genitals. It's a very charming little book, which is incidentally dedicated to Andrea.
Also, I have all day had this craving for a glass of cold coke with ice cubes and lemon and, of course, a straw! Now, I've had this delicious drink several times today, but I still can't seem to get enough. I guess this will be my new "summer-drink"!

Dark water

Yesterday, I watched Dark Water with some friends - God it's scary! I'm not really used to watch horror/thillers, so I guess I scare easily, but it was still very horrifying. A woman and her six-year-old daughter move into a flat in a block. Shortly after they move in, water start dripping from their ceiling. At the same time she keeps getting glimpses of a little girl with a red shoulder-bag. But there isn't any children apart from the daughter on the block!
It's directed byHideo Nakata ("Ringu" American version: "the Ring"). It's full of gross water and small, silent, oh so scary Japanese girls. I get chills just from watching the pictures above!

My flatmate and I are taking a small trip to the city of Edinburgh this easter. I am very excited and thrilled that she is joining me. I feel that it is suddenly possible to do things, apart from being in school, which is nice. I don't really know Edinburgh, I just know that I liked the parts of it shown in "Driving Lessons", a wonderful film that I will try and do a post about soon. The pictures are lovely (and found on a old blog called "Edinburgh Daily Photo") and I can't wait.

Sisters unite!

Hello everyone, and happy International Women's Day! Today we've demonstrated together with a lot (though, not enough) of Danish women and men. It was very nice, with good music, but it was slightly cold. Just wanted to mark this day and wish y'all a great day on the International Women's Day's 100 years anniversary!

Yesterday I went to watch Burtons "Alice in Wonderland" as part of my treatment. I suffer from a deeply profound hatred towards Johnny Depp and it was really quite a brave move to try and accept him in the role as the Hatter. And he was quite good actually, I sometimes even liked him... mainly because whenever he became mad, he spoke in some scottish dialect.
But in the name of Liza, Judy, Barbra and Bette this film is made of pure evil and by evil I mean clichées and not even the good tacky kind, just the kind that makes you physically sick. You would think that the direction of one usually clever and fab Tim Burton and the voices (and occasional face) of Matt Lucas, Stephen Fry and Alan Rickman would be somewhat good and perhaps even great. Not even these splendid three actors/comedians made up for it. I find that very distressing since those are three of my favorite brits.
I must point out that I love the story of Alice in Wonderland, and thus the plot is not what i hate about this film. I remember that as a kid I thought the red queen and her soldiers were some of the scariest characters I'd ever seen. Their authority and fascism as it was portrayed in the 1951 Disney film was really intense and utterly frightening. I listened to the story on tape and it would give me nightmares. That was one of the things I was hoping to relive when watching this film; the fright, the repulsion. But I did not get scared, and I was never impressed by the animation of the evil (and for that matter the good) characters. The repulsion however was achieved, but sadly for the wrong reason. Which is such a shame. The most prominent crime performed in this film were the lines. The amount of sugarcoated smugness that came out of especially Alice and the White queens mouths was impenetrable and made it impossible to breathe, and very possible to barf all over the lovely red velvet cinema chairs that our old local cinema Park Bio are the proud owners of.
The hyping and "match-made-in-heaven" talk this film has got, it is so utterly undeserved. God. Guh. Do not ever torment yourself by watching this pathetic film. Awful awful awful.

Rap and nudity!

These days I mostly listen to rap - both Danish, English, American and French. I like listening to it while walking. Now it's almost spring, and therefore so much more easier and nicer to walk around Copenhagen.

I'm not really reading anything except spiderman and then some books with nude photographies. I'm especially fascinated by Mary Willumsen's pictures from the baths called "Helgoland".

I'm going to Paris in a month, and I'm really excited. I hope to find one or two posters of one of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec's paintings of women. Perhaps one of these:

The Host

"The Host" directed by Joon-ho Bong in 2006 is a Korean monster thriller. I believe it takes place in the South Korean capital Seoul and it is about a strange mutant sea-creature, created as a result of chemical pollution (naturally), with what seemed to be multiple mouths, that rises from the Han river to cause terror and fright among the cities' inhabitants. When it returns to the river it brings a young girl with it, down to the sewers, and thus her family's struggle to find her begins. The title has a quite lame and therefore fantastic double meaning to it. The American military spreads the rumour that this clammy, and at times very dog-like thing is hosting a lethal virus and this makes the family's quest quite a bit more complicated since no one is allowed to go near the river etc.
Kang-ho Song plays the role of the distraught father, and does it brilliantly. This film is really quite good and I was very much in the mood for weird and slimy sea creatures tonight.
