A bad day

if you're having one too, here's something to maybe cheer you up.

The greatest song of the Great Lake Swimmers

The story of two star-crossed Amish youths, by the mesmerizing Lauren Groff.

A portrait of the artist as a young sea-lion watcher.

At a pinch the greatest movie ever. Certainly the most under appreciated.  

And not just 'cos it features Sam Rockwell's naked butt. (also, to answer your question: yes, that is Mischa Barton. She was once known for something other than headbands. Honest to blog.)

Now cheer up already!


  1. Oh I'm sorry you had a bad day!
    I hope you feel a little better now...
    Thank you for posting these. I had never heard of "Lawn dogs" and that song was wonderful!


  2. I love that song and thanks to you it reminds me of summer :)

    The scene at the end of Lawn Dogs, when she's up in the tree with all the red ribbons... pure magic, just like you.

    Hope you've cheered up, wish I could give you a big hug for real but a virtual one will have to do for now ;)

  3. Thanks for the movie recomendation!
