"Blogging isn't journalism, it's graffiti with punctuation."

Marlene and Edith

someone in Toronto with a spray can loves Marlene Dietrich and Edith Piaf


mon manège à moi, c’est toi
sung by edith piaf, translates (roughly) to “you’re a carousel to me.”


de la tête aux pieds, je suis faite pour l’aimer

those lyrics were sung in Marlene Dietrich’s “The Blue Angel” movie, and again, roughly translate to “from head to feet, i am made to love him.” (although the song was later recorded in English by The Beatles as “Falling in Love Again.”)

i am a huge fan of music and movies from the 1930s (It Happened One Night=fav movie ever!) yet i love graffiti …. turns out i’m not alone.

there are so few of us, y’know.
