Russell Brand & New Girlfriend

Yup, the beautiful charming witty sex god has a new girlfriend.
Some people just really fucking luck out don't they?
I deserve to go out with him more than she does.
Has she spent hours, days, listening to podcasts, looking up facts, quotes, interviews and films with her bf in? I don't think so.
Still, resentment and jealousy aside, they look happy together. Never heard of her before but she is stunning.

According to Tinternet, she's an Australian actress and she is co-starring in December Boys with Daniel Radcliffe, with whom she has a sex scene...

The History Boys

I love this film, it is also one of my many favourites.
The story and acting is brilliant.
The film is about this boys' school in Sheffield and these boys (who are all wicked characters) are studying for their entrance exam for Oxbridge. The headmaster gets in a tutor, Irwin, to help them but they are not used to his teaching because their two other teachers are very laid-back in comparison. They grow to like him.
My grandparents review was: "It's too gay". But my gma reads The Daily Mail so...

The cast:
The General Studies teacher: Hector (played by Richard Griffiths, who I love and adore)
The headmaster: (played by Clive Merrison)
The tutor: Irwin (played by Stephen Campbell Moore, who I also love and adore and is so sexy even though he is a right nerdy twit in it. He was in Ashes To Ashes too)
The History teacher: Mrs Lintott (played by Frances De La Tour, who is also Hagrid's date in the HP films)
The boys are:
Dakin, my favourite who is really sexy also (Dominic Cooper, who is now in Mamma Mia!)
Posner, who is so sweet (Samuel Barnett)
Timms (James Corden)
Rudge (Russell Tovey, who was in an episode of Doctor Who and Ashes To Ashes)
Akthar (Sacha Dhawan)
Crowther (Samuel Anderson)
Lockwood (Andrew Knott)
Scripps (Jamie Parker)

My favourite quotes:
* - Posner: I'm a Jew, I'm small, I'm homosexual, and I live in Sheffield. I'm fucked.
* - Rudge: How do I define history? Well it's just one fucking thing after another.
* - Headmaster: We're low in the league. I want to see us up there with Manchester Grammar, Haberdasher Askes, Leighton Park... or is that an open prison? 
* [Dakin is annoyed because he thinks Irwin doesn't like him]
   - Posner: But he doesn't understand, Irwin DOES like him. He seldom looks at anyone else.
   - Scripps: How do you know?
   - Posner: Because nor do I. Our eyes meet looking at Dakin.
* - Dakin: What happened with Hector? On the bike?
   - Scripps: As per. Except I managed to get my bag down. I think he thought he'd got me going. In fact it was my Tudor Economic Documents, Volume 2.

Pranks On YouTube

I love prank calls and stitch ups so here are some favourites:

Enjoy. :).

What's Eating Gilbert Grape

I just watched What's Eating Gilbert Grape which I have on Doovde and I've just managed to stop crying. It's one of my favourite films (then again, my list of my favourite films really is quite long) and I love the ending.
Johnny Depp and Leonardo DiCaprio (who are actually my two favourite actors) star in it and Juliette Lewis, Mary Steenburgen, Darlene Cates, Laura Harrington, Mary Kate Schellhardt and John C Reilly are some of the other actors.
The linked pictures are what they look like now, and most of them have considerably changed. The film was released in 1993.
Johnny, who I have met (oh yes be jealous), is my grandparents' neighbour near St Tropez, in the south of France, lives with his wife, Vanessa Paradis, (she really doesn't know how lucky she is... plus in real life she looks like a coke addict she's so gaunt-looking, woops that just slipped out) and his two kids.
This was Leo's fourth film and he got his first Academy Award nomination for this and well obviously now he is enormously famous.
Also, I observed that he worked with John C Reilly again in The Aviator. I love noticing things like that, I guess I'm a big fan of common knowledge... or just knowledge in general.
I googled Juliette Lewis and she is now a rocker! I think she's changed alot, here's a pic of her rocking out and here's one of her in Gilbert Grape (she is obviously on the right). She looks like a cool person, I'd like to meet her.
I think the movie is well worth buying on Doovde (you have to watch Fone Hijacker if you don't get this) because the acting is wicked and the story is well good. Blud.

The Mighty Boosh

I know there must be so many posts about the Boosh on these blogs, I have read alot of them, but I just have to join in and do one to because I do think I am definitely one of the most obsessed in the world.

A conversation cannot be had with me without a Mighty Boosh quote or reference. I can't help myself, Vince Noir (Noel Fielding) and Howard Moon (Julian Barratt) constitute a very large part of my brain activity.

Now, I really dislike it when people mix up the characters' personalities with Noel and Julian's personalities 'cos they are different. So I'll start with the characters.

Vince, is just pure amazing. He's very stylish (in a totally unique and strange way), loves his hair, electro music, fashion and parties. Here's a convo from the episode 'Charlie':
Vince: I like thick girls. Girls who like bright colours, dancing, soft fabrics.
Howard: Don't you want an equal?
Vince: Yeah!
(By the way as soon as you can do that, remember conversations and long quotes, you're a Mighty Boosh fan).

Howard, is also pure amazing but gets slightly less attention from fangirls, probably mostly to do with a few facts: he loves Jazz (or Jazz-Fusion or Jazz-Funk), has tiny eyes, never gets any female attention in the series (apart from Precious Lillywhite, a coconut doll he made in episode 'Nightmare of Milky Joe'), is very pretentious but never gets anywhere and hates criticism and, very unlike Vince, doesn't believe in accessories.

In one interview, I remember Noel saying that someone else said (I can't remember who or the exact quote, my memory is actually quite immensely shit), that Noel was more intelligent than Vince and Julian less intelligent than Howard. Which is probably true, imo.

Alice Glass

Alice Glass is my most recent obsession. She is my idol.
I'm always wondering what she's like... There are no video interviews, that I can find, of her or Crystal Castles. According to Edgar Smith, from Time Out who interviewed them, said she is "the sociable half [of Crystal Castles]". I have an interview with NME but it's not on camera, it just appeared in the magazine: that's how I discovered them. I know she smokes, gets annoyed easily, hates action comics and computer games and wants their music to make you vomit.
I think she has a wicked attitude and we would get on well.
I've liked Crystal Castles for about 6 months but I had never seen them live until I saw them at Glastonbury at the John Peel stage, and shit they were amazing.
Alice, now a fashion icon, rebelled from the first song to their last, which was not long after because they stopped playing after about 6 songs. They did their best ones though, like their most famous I think, Alice Practise (which is, according to them, a recording of alice practising which they put on their myspace page and became a song, although some, like NME, say it's too perfect). Alice climbed, stood on the drumkit and even walked through the press to touch the crowd (and that was just the first song).
I thought they were great. Confused when Alice just walked off and stopped, I asked Security why Crystal Castles had stopped playing and he said she just wandered off. Later I heard they were kicked off stage...

According to my mates, I look like Alice. I would like to think I do. Her style is pretty unique: black bob, pencil skirts, converses, couloured tights, black eye make-up, Star Wars and Minnie Mouse tees and cardigans. You can see I spend alot of time thinking about it.

Also, check out the clip of Crystal Castles on an episode of Skins (two of my most favourite things in the world, you can imagine my face when I saw it) which is here.


This is my first ever blog.

I'm fourteen and half English, half French but don't judge: I consider myself to be English.
I am extremely obsessive although I get distracted easily and I don't have much patience.

I love, as categories: music, films, reading, style and beauty, youtubing (tv programmes mostly or stand-up), pictures, make-up, glitter, comedy, festivals, gigs, eating, reciting quotes, atoms, philosophy, physics, dressing up, drumming, spelling tests, having a laugh, having a cry/sob...

I dislike: religion, bad music taste, un-funny american comedy films (or "movies"), animal cruelty, war, americanization, bad breath, stereotyping, people in power who shouldn't be, hierarchy, mentality of some school teachers... Tall people sort of annoy me aswell.

This blog is going to be about my obsessions and thoughts... Read if you're interested.
