Heyyy BABES! I'm back from Britain! Went to visit my relavives in the Easter hols again :D
It was so much funnnn! First I went to see my Granny who lives near Dover (southhhh England!) for 3 days and then my lovely aunt and uncle and cousins - 21 and 26 years old - who live in Kent. Aside from that I went up to my cousins flat in London for a night and we went to a bar-slash-restaurant calles Circus which was really cool! We saw a gymnast doing CRAZY things on his hands on, like, stick-thingies and a singing Drag Queen which really left us guessing what sex SHe was. Click HERE to see pics of some of the cool stuff that happens there. :) (I can't put any pics on here unfortunately -.-)
I aslo went to see two art exhibitions in those ten days. The first one was Turner, and I was amazed to see Rodin's The Kiss there. Like, seriously, it's one of my favourite sculptures ever. I was like: ''Ohmigod, thats the KISS!'' O.O
The other exhibition was in the Tate Modern, Damien Hirst. I was sooo happy that I was there at the right time. It opened on the 4th of april, and it was so good. Lots of people critcize Hirst for killing so many animals for his work. But I think that A) he didn't even kill those animals, he used dead ones in the 1st place and B) people who say that sticking dead butterflies on a canvas isn't art, I have to correct you. Have you SEEN what he does with them? The Gate to the Kingdom of Heaven seems to be a stainglass window at first glance, but turns out to be a black canvas covered in reflective butterfly wings. I think it's deffinightly one of my favourite art pieces ever. SO BEAUTIFUL.
And I get that some of his 'art' is gross or unusual, and I dont find decaying dead cows heads very beautiful either, but in these cases it is more the idea behind the isntallation that makes it into an art piece. Hirst celebrates life and death in his art and makes BOTH beautiful.
I shopped alot and ate in different amazing restaurants and now officially declare Tai to be some of my fav food. I also watched a lot of Sex and the City (I know: old.. But stil luv it!) as well as Take Me Out (No Likey, No Lighty!), Crazy Stupid Love and Changeling with Angelina Jolie.
Changeling is an amazing, but sad story about a woman who's son is kidnapped. The police find him and give him back to her but she knows he isn't her son. As she is refusing to be convinced that this is her son the police send her to a psyciartic clinic, saying that she is mentally ill against her will. It turns out that her son was killed by a crazy psycopath serial childrens murderer, but later she is given hope as evidence iss found that her son may have escaped. I quite liked this film, and even though I get its based on a true story I think it would have been better to have a happy OR a sad ending rather than the way it was, it just didn't feel finished to me.
Crazy Stupid Love is a really good film, with an amazing twist at the end. Seriously, I would have never expected that to happen but I really liked it! The film starrs Ryan Gosling, who I liked for this role because he had just the right amount of good looks funniness and cockiness, and who I was glad he did it because to me it seemed like he'd only ever done really weird films (except for The Notebook) and I think such a fit man shouldn't be weird. Emma Stone was in it; like because she's funny, dislike because she's just not that pertty. And Steve Carell who was funny for the part and was perfectly geeky for his character, but he is turned into a womanizer and then he really should have been more attractive than he was.
While I was in England I frequently lisetened to Radio 1! So good, so much good, new music and exactly the right amount of talking and humor. I love Grimmy, Annie Mac and Fearne! I got 18 new songs from 10 days of listening! O.O WOW! BOOM! FIREWORKS!
Happy Late Easter Everybody! XXX
