The title is a line from Douglas Coupland's Life After God, one of my all-time favourite books.

I love this.
This evening I will be re-visiting what is perhaps my all-time favourite film, Ingmar Bergman’s Persona (1966).
“Anaesthetise me… throw me away! No, I can’t, I can’t take any more! Leave me alone! It’s shame, it’s all shame! Leave me alone! I’m cold and rotten and indifferent! It’s all just lies and imitation, all of it!”
It’s a true masterpiece.
Punk Rock Girls #2 Penelope Houston, singer, The Avengers
Penelope has such an incredible voice…and she always wore the best outfits. That self-titled LP has been re-issued and is a must-have for any serious punk fan.

This is one of the first photographs I ever took with an SLR camera and developed myself. I’d had compacts since I was ten years old, but it wasn’t until we got to do some photography classes in high school that I got to use a “real camera”. This one was taken in 1995 and it’s just a random picture of my friend Mikael, mid-jump, outside our school. I can’t remember if it was for a particular assignment or if it was ever used for anything. I imagine we were just playing around with shutter speeds. It’s a shame you can’t really see his rather spactacular mohawk.

All The Real Girls (2003, Directed by David Gordon Green)
One of my all time favourite romantic films. It’s almost perfect, apart from a few little scenes that feel just a little bit forced and unnatural. That line, though. Just perfect! It makes me go all weak at the knees…every single time.
