Music Covers

As I said in a previous post, I enjoy singing a lot these days. Here are two covers I did (nothing is taken seriously). I've made the "Under Your Spell" Video and Chrys did "Breathe Me". We've mixed images I've taken during my roadtrip in the US and some that Chrys did on the railway. For the music, it's still me in front of my computer...maybe I should invest in a real microphone now that they reach more than a hundred views aha.

Miss Havisham

In the Great Expectations written by Charles Dickens, one character caught my attention: Miss Havisham. A wealthy woman who lives in her ruined mansion looking like a witch. These features already made her my hero but she really became a muse of inspiration when she fell in love with Compeyson. This man was more interested by her riches than her but Miss Havisham was so in love that she was blind. 
At twenty minutes to nine on their wedding day, while she was dressing, she received a letter from Compeyson and realized he will never show off and she had been left at the altar. From that day, she remained alone in her decaying mansion, heartbroken, never removing her wedding dress and wearing only one shoe, leaving the wedding cake uneaten on the table. 

I had been shut up in these rooms a long time (I don't know how long, you know what time the clocks keep here)

Calvi On The Rocks

I'm a little late with my posts but as there is no indian summer this year, looking back to these pictures makes me feel like I am back in july when I sailed to Calvi On The Rocks with mermaid Sacha (Soyons-Ouf) . See her post on the event >here< 
We had a great time listening to The Shoes over the turquoise water of l'île de Beauté.

Hair Color Mood Palette

Green Revolution
Red Menace
Agent Orange
Blue Ruin
Like about 90% of the girls of my generation one of my favorite movies is Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind directed by Michel Gondry.
First because I identify myslef to the crazy Clémentine (Kate Winslet) and then because the whole story described a situation I knew I would have to face one day. Sometimes I would like to put all the the memories I have with my ex-boyfriend in a bag, let Dr Mierzwiak draw a map to erase them all and meet him again.

The idea of the script is taken from two books written Boris Vian "L'Herbe Rouge" that narrates the adventures of an engineer who creates a machine to make him relive his past to forget his anguish and "L'Arrache-Coeur" that tells the story of a psychiartrist who is actually an empty cell who tris to fill in psychoanalysed people assimilating their thoughts.

Anyway all this to say that I'm in a total Clementine mood these days and I wanted to try for the first time changing my hair color. In Eternal Sunshine of the spotless mind the color schemes present to the viewer a mnemonic method for arranging the film within an intelligible order. Clementines's hair color moves from green when she first meets Joel to red when she leaves the happiest time with him, to orange when she wants to break up to finally blue refering to the post-breakup and re-falling in love with Joel. That schizophrenic association of hair color to personality is something I've experienced these past few months but in a more Tye & Dye style ! Love the way the color are named in the film and I'll try to name mine.
Red Cosmos 
Snow Bride
Purple Scar
