Things I Love This Week

Horse Riding - Loving riding (as always) but loving seeing that I've improved since starting at a new riding school. Adore the horses I've been riding, Dennis and Minnie too <3

Steven's Scooter - Glad he's bought a new scooter as the old one is a piece of junk! I curse the day it was bought!

M&S Lemon Drizzle Cake - Not usually a massive fan, but it was pretty nice cake!

Boardwalk Empire - Only watched the first episode but hoping to get involved quickly.

Long Shot Film Festival 2011 - Gutted that I didn't win the audience award with 'Resume' but think it was just the wrong audience and that people failed to see the creative, unusal message. Was good to get my film screening in a room full of people, even if it was terrifying too.

Bents Garden Center - Went over the weekend and was impressed by their christmas displays, also picked up a couple of bargains for when we move out!

David Blaine & The Great White

One of my biggest ambitions in life is to swim/dive with sharks, I'm very jealous of this very crazy David Blaine video for designer Adam Kimmel. Mr Kimmel, if you need anyone else for some reshoots I'll volunteer!!

A Bout De Truffe

Tom Tagholm's A Bout De Truffe is another of my absolute favourite shorts. I first remember being shown it by my lecturer whilst doing my BA degree and it's stuck with me ever since. This French short is about Jean Dubois, a truffle hunter who is down on his luck, until he comes across the daddy of all truffles. It is set in a beautiful delapidated cottage in a woodland (you know how much I love decaying things!) and his pig, Carinne, is gorgeous.

Danse Macabre: The Most Beautiful Film In The World

I first saw Danse Macabre, a film by Pedro Pires, at Edinburgh's Dead By Dawn Festival in October 2010. I think I must have watched the whole film with my jaw hanging open. It was visually stunning and the concept was beautiful. I really don't even know how to summarise what an impact it has had upon me! I found out today that I could finally buy the entire film from iTunes and it really has made my year in regards to being an audience member.

Here's the trailer:
