Some are dark. But their beauty astounds me.

a.k.a. Jean Marais...




Been watching "Orpheus" by Cocteau with Maria and Jean Marais... The work of art.
We have to get our hands on "ladies of the wood"/ Les dames du Bois de Boulogne.

the lady's fierce !


The Boss

The man spells "sexy" ! We have only few albums of his, but we do see why they're so full of testosterone now...

Ethan only in black and white

Yes, we just can't get over "Reality Bites", but really he's more handsome in black and white than in colour...

Could someone arrange that ?


Pagan Poetry 5 : Victor Hugo & Franz Liszt

Despite the great version sung by Diana Damrau, since we saw Barbara Bonney sing it, we just can't get it out of our head, and it's monday morning and everybody needs a bit of tenderness sometimes.

The lyrics are from Victor Hugo and the music by Liszt

Oh! When I Sleep

Oh, when I sleep, approach my bed,
As Laura appeared to Petrach;
And when in passing, your breath touches me...
Suddenly my lips
Will part!

On my glum face, where perhaps is ending
A dark dream which lasted too long,
As your glance like a star arises...
Suddenly my dream
Will become radiant!

Then on my lips, where a flame is fluttering,
A flash of love that God has kept pure,
Place a kiss, and from an angel, become a woman...
Suddenly my soul
Will be awakened.

Oh! quand je dors, viens auprès de ma couche,
comme à Pétrarque apparaissait Laura,
Et qu'en passant ton haleine me touche...
Soudain ma bouche

Sur mon front morne où peutêtre s'achève
Un songe noir qui trop longtemps dura,
Que ton regard comme un astre se lève...
Soudain mon rêve

Puis sur ma lèvre où voltige une flamme,
Éclair d'amour que Dieu même épura,
Pose un baiser, et d'ange deviens femme...
Soudain mon âme

Interesting book covers

...that we found in our art department on our Mr Computer... probably from some online book store resource ?
anyway, we like those.

Sometimes a brick is just a brick

... and sometimes it's not just a brick...
