I have a wicked crush on folk art right now. I 've been buying used picture books on the subject lately and these images are all from one titled "Treasures of American Folk Art". I read these books, too. Raptly. I'm fascinated. But my brain doesn't retain information the way I want it to. I wish I was one of those peeps who has a memory for details. What do you call that? See, I can't remember. It's not even funny so I won't add a little "haha" or smiley face.
What I think I do is store the images and details of images in some non-wordy part of my brain for use later. For instance, with movies or books I remember the feel of the thing, I remember certain scenes, visually speaking, but I entirely forget character names and plot.
Which reminds me, I really want to go see "Coco before Chanel." And then another movie I saw the preview for and for which of course I can't remember the title. It was
"_____ Education." About a young girl and older man having an affair. Do you know it? If so, please tell me.
I did go see "The September Issue" with my fabulous friend Emily. It was her idea. I have to be completely honest here and tell you I am not really Vogue literate. The movie was entertaining. The photographer/Art Director seems really talented. But kind of sad. Stuck making interesting work in what is fundamentally a shallow environment. I mean, I like clothes. I really appreciate the self-expression of getting dressed. But the whole Vogue-y world leaves me feeling a little dirty. And if you saw it, tell me you didn't want to hurl with all the kiss-ups working for the magazine. The guy in the white suit? Sheesh. Totally blew with the wind and whoever he happened to be talking to at the moment.
Ok, I know I will lose you if I keep a-rambling. Thanks for reading.
