I am SO excited for The Bling Ring by Sofia Coppola to be released in the UK, I actually cannot wait! In preparation I’m about to start reading this book based on the real ‘Bling Ring’.
The original Bling Ring were a group of (fairly well off) teenagers from California who burgled celebrities houses including Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Orlando Bloom by using methods such as entering through a DOG FLAP, ha ha!
On the Paris Hilton robbery:
“They went up to the front door and tried ringing the doorbell to see if anyone was there. They discovered a key under the doormat, but then realized it wasn’t needed because the door was unlocked.”
You really couldn’t make this shit up, it’s such a good story and I can’t wait to see Coppola’s take on it, she’s one of my favourite filmmakers of all time. Also, Emma Watson looks amazing in this, she really suits the bling look!
“Coppola offers no obvious views on our celebrity-obsessed youth culture. Does she hate their vapidity or not? Whose fault is their brazen materialism – their parents or their surroundings? And who are the real victims here? Coppola refuses to say. But the fact that Paris Hilton loaned her house to the crew for filming only adds to the ambiguity at the heart of the film. Moreover, as with all Coppola’s films, her band of burglars are so effortlessly stylish and impeccably well-dressed you can’t help but near envy their brazen greed.” – The Culture Edit, Vogue.
I promise blogging will resume soon, I turned 24 at the weekend so was busy being spoilt. But at the same time one of my wisdom teeth (bottom right to be precise) decided to come through to say hai and infect me, and I have to say… pretty much the worst.pain.ever. Anti-biotics, painkillers and rest for me.
Cute ring, right? Don’t think mine looks like that though.
The new Boards of Canada album Tomorrow’s Harvest is being transmitted live tomorrow at 9pm UK time . I cannot wait! Lets hope the site doesn’t crash (a la MBV… festival tickets and every other thing like this in the world..). The album is being released officially June 10th. I’ve waited patiently for this, they are my favourite electronic artists of all time. Maybe I will see them live sometime…..
Here is one of my favourite Boards of Canada songs, June 9th. It is also the date of my birthday so I think it was meant to be.
