32nd Annual MVFF

MVFF banner

The Mill Valley Film Festival started yesterday …..which will run through to next Sunday, the 18th.  I was perusing the list of Films that are being featured …and what an exciting ensemble of projects they have lined up??

The MVFF 09 is my first …since I missed out on MVFF 08 and this is the 2nd year I have lived in Marin  ….which is a mecca for Art and all things Film Festivals.  Having lived in Los Angeles for 20 years ….I developed an avid interest for Indie Film and a mad passion for personally wonderous-invoked projects.

Unfortunately for me and considering I was sick and out of commission for most things ….especially the pre-planning for seeing some of the projects ….I may actually be missing out on ‘Happy Tears’ …featuring a personal fave: Parker Posey …and also co-starring Demi Moore.

Of course most of the projects featuring known Hollywood names  …seem to have sold out ….names in point: Clive Owen, Uma Thurman and at the showcasing of their respective projects …’Croupier’ for Owens and ‘Motherhood’ for Thurman  ….they will also be doing open forum Q&As.

Last night I saw an opportunity to get into: ‘The Young Victoria’ starring Emily Blunt ….of ‘Devil wears Prada’  ….inclusive is the moonlight sail ‘Closing Night Party’ on the California Hornblower out of Sausalito …with great food and wine of course.  However …at this precise moment I have to shelve the idea ….as I am still at the tail end of recovering from my larynx infection.

Overall, I’m picking up the impression that a star-project is ‘Precious’ …..and judging from the Buzz? ….it’s loaded with powerhouse performances.

As a general plan ….I am considering a few projects to check out …if I hold out well mid-week …..it’ll come to as many projects as I can stomach (..or get into??) …..after all there still seem to be much available in the direction of the …Documentaries.

To Boot for Fall

D&G boots

For me, these are the boots that could start a Revolution …..the revolution of creative and fun choices for my Fall/Winter 09 wardrobe that is….

D & G ….knee-hi, burgundy grained leather with 3 & 1/2″gold toned heels ….aaaaahh! ..sigh! …obviously orgasmic!

Why do I love them so?? ….why would I be in love with boots from possibly 2 seasons ago??   Maybe because I’m a tad bored with the current selection? ….it’s all platform and pencil heels: ..makes for great legs/feet candy …but a bitch on the heel.  Thus the love affair with the thicker heel and eternal gratitude to Chie Mihara and her shoes.

My passion for wearing my boots gets so invigorated ….I like to carry the affair of having them On …for hours …rather then just a few?   I’m all for trendy ….just MY trends ….and yes it’s absolutely true! …I’m one of those people that sometimes gets turned On by a trend? …that’s on its way Out! ..LOL!

My truth in point …like most …is all about the belief that what you choose to wear? ..should be an extension of who you are ….and that’s exactly why I love these boots …they basically equate ensembles of my Wears: ….the metallic heel contrasted against the burgundy boot ….solid, clean, slick with a punch of pizazz!

1st Post …celebration??

I’ve stared at the face of ‘Dilemma of not posting on my Blog’ for too long.

I’m going through this transition ….where I am trying to re-configure my blogs or blogging in the current climate of E-Expressions if you will.

However, in this process …..I’ve found myself in a self-imposed rock and hard place?…place??   What does that mean? …..Well! ….I think I just over-thought everything ….from perfectionism to pseudo thinker’s-block ….it’s No wonder I imagined myself into an expression stand still.

So, it’s kind of obvious I practically tortured myself purple over the entire matter.   I even thought about …if I were standing in front of a big crowd …I mean a really big crowd of the major rock concert variety …..and had to explain my “Dilemma of not posting” …..what would I say??

Of course …I would be polite enough to first introduce myself ….then probably break into some song and dance of how everytime I thought of writing something …..got to my laptop ….and started keying in my “bright idea”? ….I’d soon after become over-wrought with the overwhelming notion of ….there might be other bright ideas??  ..Ugh! ….this is exactly why mind-control should never be over-rated!

Before I over-think this any further  ….it’s here and now ….and in the event of expressing the culmination of my frustrations of not posting ….I’ve managed to string together enough sentences worthy of becoming a post ….so, here goes!
