Light My Fire, not this time

Jim Morrison's lost song "Woman in the Window" was found by Perry Farrell, the former frontman of Jane's Addiction. Tonight, it's going to be aired its first play in London.

Interestingly, the single will be used as part of Global Cool campaign which aims to save a billion tonnes of carbon emissions.

Essential to wardrobe

I always think Bob Dylan's hair style and his sunglasses are a perfect match. Now you can have it from Ray-Ban's 2007 Spring/Summer collection.

Try to get a table? Pay for it

PrimeTimeTables.com, according to their website, specializes in Impossible Reservation. In the city, if you are Somebody, then you could get a table in the last minute. So I ain't nobody, I have to pay $35 to $45 to get a table in the prime time(7:00-9:00). They argue they don't charge for making reservations, they charge for the service of making reservations.

I would rather spend $35 on a bottle of wine for my after-party.

Why I love Francois Truffaut

上星期看了楚浮的 Day for Night, 故事是在描述電影拍攝的過程, 而楚浮本人就是扮演戲中導演的角色. 雖然電影的故事性不強, 相對於 Fellini8 1/2, 看起來卻是相當輕鬆, 很有趣.

Day for Night 是美國電影製作的術語, 意思是在白天的時候利用佈景及濾光鏡, 拍攝夜晚的場景. 整部片感受到楚浮對電影的熱愛, 例如劇中導演的助理說:
I will drop a man for a film, but I won't drop a film for a man.

常常在想為什麼那麼喜歡楚浮的電影, 我發現很大的原因就是如同影評人聞天祥對楚浮的評論, 他說 楚浮的電影很少對不同的道德觀有所批判, 而是以寬容的角度來看待人性.
