John Lennon Nowhere Boy Film

I'm just so excited about this film its unreal!!!
I've been a Beatles fan (thanks to my mum) from birth!!! and a John Lennon fan since my mum showed me the film Help! when I was 8 years old, and I fell in love there and then!
Well this film is gonna be good I just know it, if anybody out there has read 'In my Life' by Johns school friend Pete Shotton (which by the way is my fav JL book) then this film looks just like an adaptation of that book
heres the trailer

I can see me seeing that a few time at the cinema!

well the break to Devon was amazing really didnt want to come home, we were lucky to have really gorgeous weather that week
went to the most fab place called Bygones ( which is a great nostalgic place to wonder round with a whole replica 19th century high street
set up inside with a sweet shop, toy store, ladies clothes shop, pub, bakeries etc! so adorable I felt as though I was in Oliver! the musical!
we also went to Becky falls were theres loads of waterfalls and an amazing "money tree", were you had to place a coin in, so the pixies would look after you in your travels!!(see photos)
the views are all so beautiful, living in Dartford and Chatham all my life I forgot places like this exsisted!

One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest / Give Away Sneaky Peek

My absolute fav film & book of all time is One flew over the cuckoos nest
McMurphy: Is that crazy enough for ya'? Want me to take a shit on the floor?
McMurphy: What do you think you are, for Chrissake, crazy or somethin'? Well you're not! You're not!
You're no crazier than the average asshole out walkin' around on the streets and that's it.

Jack Nicholson is my favourite actor hes also fab in The Shining (another bloody good film!)
I also like Girl Interupted (Lisas my fav character)
which obv is very similar to One flew where they are both set on psychiatric wards!
(when I was younger I really wanted to work on one!)
if you have not seen One flew yet you really must its a great story, funny and the friendship between McMurphy and the Cheif is beautiful
I'm currently reading On the Road by Jack Kerouac, but my next read me thinks might be Tom Wolfes Electric Kool Aid Acid Test,
appantley they are making it into a film?!
and I must read the book before I see the film!

what are you all reading?, and what are your fav films and why?

heres a sneaky peak of the give away prize I'll be doing soon, a soon as I get all the bits together and figure a way to win this prize!

Saturday, 8 August 2009 dress

What do y'all think of my new dress?
secret is.. it cost me 50p from a bootfair, I just loved the fabric
the roses remind me of some kind of vintage wallpaper!
its from the 80's
It was a size 18 and down to my ankles, but I just had to have it
so I got out my trusty sewing machine and took it UP'N'IN!!!
plus you get a sneaky peek of my new wall, I'm decorating the bedroom, slowly but surely.

Day at the Zoo

I spent the day Monday at Howletts Zoo near Canterbury in Kent,
I bloody love going the zoo and if I could I would of smuggled one of
each of these out :
Wild dog
and a Hog
The lemurs were,by far, one of my favourites, because you could walk around with them and they wouldsit next to you and nibble on a piece of cabbage!
So adorable! I very nearly popped on in my handbag, but one of the keepers had hes eye on me :)

Stones & The Bad Shepherds

Well well well,
The Counterfeit Stones were indeed, excellent they're sound is spot on! a good show for any Stones fan BUT, and it is a big BUT!..... they need a stylist (*she raises hand* Me! ME! me! please Sir! I'll do it!)
I'm sorry to say they looked awful, as if they were taking the piss!! with they're crappy wigs, so, if you do go, stand near the back or just squint!!
Heres us! we got snapped for some website?! I stole the pic!


on a much better note The Bad Shepherds were GREAT!! for those of you that don't know its Adrian Edmondson's (bottom /young ones) band, they play all folk intruments, Ade plays the 'thrash mandolin', but do covers of punk songs, their set consisted of Teenage Kicks, Going Underground, God Save the Queen, Up the Junction, even Kraftwerks The Model, such a giggle.
