I have taken a sudden interest in butterflies of late.
This picture of the rare glass-winged butterfly astonished me.
It seems to me that I’m in a bit of a muddle – about most things regarding my life.

Probably one of the most visually stunning movies ever made.
Preisner’s score for the film is also beautiful, moving, transcendent.

In the clip below, David Garland talks to Alexandre Desplat who is sure to earn some noms this award season. (He scored, like, five big movies this year!) Anyway, this segment is a good one. David Garland’s show Movies on the Radio is a recent discovery. As a total film score geek, I was much elated when I came across it (like how Crusoe must have felt when he saw a footprint in the sand: I’m not alone!)
I believe La Luna was Pixar’s opening short film that played before the movie Brave. Just saw it recently and found it to be so sweet and clever.
One day, I shall go to eastern Europe, and sit in an exceptionally cozy cafe.
The one below looks like it will suit me perfectly.
