Les Biches

Achingly beautiful! The colours, location and casting are sensational. The presence of St├ęphane Audran is almost too much to bear for the screen, it’s as if it is overflowing with this extraordinary creature as she oozes out buckets full of beauty, style, sensuality, chic with a good measure of aloofness. Highly recommended. Thanks Michael!

L'Histoire de Melody Gainsbourg

I have just finished devouring the Serge Gainsbourg biography ‘a fistful of gitanes’ which was absolutely wonderfully poetic. If I always thought I would love to learn French, understanding the poetry of Serge should be an incentive on its own. The book of course feels somewhat melancholy towards the end of Serge’s life but somehow I feel good, in fact I feel great that Serge existed and that his wonderful music is in my life.

Sex & Sex & Rock 'n Roll

Well John Cale just simply had to wait, as a new shiny yellow package arrived and I eagerly unwrapped Bebe Buell's book! I have just finished it and it was delicious. I'm not so sure how I feel about Bebe, it is amazing how much personal information you can read about a person and yet feel so distant and quite frankly perplexed. None the less she is one feisty alluring and fascinating character, Vive La Buell!

Hanky Panky Nohow

I have just ordered the John Cale autobiography after going to see him perform his album Paris 1919, and could not imagine how absolutely magical he is. At the time it felt like I was dragged to the concert, but I should really know by now how fabulously exquisite my other half’s taste is… in everything!

Janice Dickinson

Recently I have been reading biographies relentlessly, so I thought I’ll start with a book I really couldn’t put down, ‘No Lifeguard on Duty’ was written by the larger than life Janice Dickinson, illustrating her incredible existence from an extremely unpleasant childhood to the strength and tenacity to succeed as a model and to the internal emotional struggle to find herself. The story laced with drugs, alcohol, humour and men (a lot of men) is brutally honest and captivating.

Les Dames Du Bois De Boulogne

Just finished watching Les Dames Du Bois De Boulogne after my friend Michael has provided me with a list of films I ought to watch, well it was breathtaking! I can’t quite believe it, extraordinarily poetic dialogue enchanting and haunting photography and the acting was dazzling. Thank you Michael.

My favorite Supermodel!

This extraordinary Israeli model Michaela Bercu was at her hight of her career when I was a teen growing up in Israel, nobody ever got her there and despite her incredible success everyone seemed to be taken aback as to how this rather odd looking woman was doing covers for Vogue. Well I was never confused she has always blown me away, those lips, the hair the smile, I always feel slightly weak at the knees when I see images of her.

More Todd Rundgren

I am now off to listen to his interview with Danny Baker...

My Brazil

Brazil for me, for me Brazil!

What's New Pussycat?

I cannot quite believe this ad for jeans - sportswear - jackets, but then again we are talking 70's Vogue L'uomo

How do you do it Nick?

My favorite campaign this season!

A Wizard, A True Star

I went to see the extraordinary Todd Rundgren on Saturday, my god he was out of this world. The keyboards, the saxophone, the guitar and his wonderful vulnerable possessed voice all melting lovingly together.
