Movie nerd wall!

I may not be the most gifted or inspired when it comes to interior design, but I'm pretty proud of this. Behold, a newly decorated wall of our new apartment! The images were found almost entirely at Carteles de Cine and printed out on regular paper.

Context-free delight #4

Now that I live in La-La Land, I was lucky enough to catch a program called "Cartoon Noir" at the Silent Movie Theatre, featuring Hollywood cartoons that mock, imitate, or otherwise pay homage to film noir. It was mostly familiar faces (i.e. Daffy and Donald Duck) or otherwise anthropomorphic creatures, but there was one that was unlike any cartoon I'd ever seen. It's a mostly musical cartoon rendition of "Frankie and Johnny," more sexy than silly, complete with unique animation and a credited choreographer (!). It's pretty impossible to describe - just watch it!
