carnations

    
despite being humble 'cheap' little flowers (or perhaps because of it?) carnations are my favourites

maripolarama

the book depository offers free delivery worldwide on a huge selection of titles. one of my choices was maripolarama, which is a photographic account of life in new york in the early 80s. maripol was a stylist who rubbed shoulders with a wide range of creative people - madonna, andy warhol, jean-michel basquiat, grace jones, keith haring and of course, the always-gorgeous debbie harry. she documented everything with her instant camera and this book is the result.

movie: christiane f

  
  
  
  
  
an old but amazing movie that blew me away when i first saw it. christiane f is a german film, based on a book about drug addicted kids living in berlin in the late 70s. christiane is a thirteen year old girl who gets drawn into a world of nightclubs, parties and progressively harder drugs until she become a heroin addict, slumming it at bahnhof zoo train station with a gang of other homeless kids. along the way we see her frequenting the 'sound' nightclub, going to a david bowie concert, meeting her boyfriend detlef, watching her friends die, losing detlef and ending up working as a teenage prostitute.
natja brunckhorst as christiane is just beautiful and the scenes are wonderfully filmed. it is a must-see, and i highly recommend that you watch it in the original german - here's the trailer:
