Amazing amazing amazing. This whole album is so moving. It somehow manages to be both old-fashioned and unexpected, both deeply rooted and totally fresh. I’m so glad Steve Martin and Edie Brickell have decided to make a musical from it.

"I don’t want to film a ‘slice of life’ because people can get that at home, in the street, or even in front of the movie theater. They don’t have to pay money to see a slice of life. And I avoid out-and-out fantasy because people should be able to identify with the characters. Making a film means, first of all, to tell a story. That story can be an improbable one, but it should never be banal. It must be dramatic and human. What is drama, after all, but life with the dull bits cut out. The next factor is the technique of film-making, and in this connection I am against virtuosity for its own sake. Technique should enrich the action. One doesn’t set the camera at a certain angle just because the cameraman happens to be enthusiastic about that spot. The only thing that matters is whether the installation of the camera at a given angle is going to give the scene its maximum impact. The beauty of the image and movement, the rhythm and the effects—everything must be subordinate to the purpose."
Alfred Hitchcock

Adelaide is delighted to be sharing this exceptional weather with you (now please hold onto until at least Saturday for my friends’ wedding).

I feel like Melbourne and Adelaide are kissing cousins, weather-wise, although Adelaide is definitely the hotter cousin between December and March. And I’ll whisper this next part so I don’t jinx your friends’ wedding: the forecast looks good for the next few days.

I think you sent it north today. Our weather forgot to winter on the weekend (hello shorts!), but it’s wet & freezing today.

If Melbourne and Adelaide are kissing cousins in the weather stakes, Melbourne and Sydney are the brats at a children’s birthday party, playing hot potato with cold weather and getting all grabby hands during the game of sunshine pass-the-parcel. I think I over-metaphored.

Your room and view look very alluring. I love how the window wraps around the corner.

Today was a gorgeous, bright sparkly day. My flat really is lovely, especially in winter. It’s cosy and the lounge and bedroom windows are huge and face north. I’m not ready to contemplate summer. I’m hoping a polar vortex decides to vacation in the southern hemisphere.
