For the first time in weeks I'm actually done with my assignment for school and it's not even past midnight! Bravo! :P Now I can have a early beauty sleep, I could use one ;)

The Cannes film festival is still going on strong, it ends on Sunday with the closing ceremony, but there's already been some good word of mouth surrounding several films and acting performances. For instance, Naomi Watts is said to give her finest performance to date in Doug Liman's Fair Game which also stars Sean Penn. Then there is Javier Bardem in Alejandro González Iñárritu's Biutiful (no typo) a film that has received mixed responses, but everyone seems to agree Bardem's performance is terrific. Then there's Blue Valentine by Derek Cianfrance starring Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling (Oooooh how I love Dead Man's Bones!). Both actors have received great praise succeeding in creating an authentic on-screen couple for which you really come to care for. One film that has a good chance of actually walking away with the highest honour, that being the Palme D'Or, is Mike Leigh's Another Year. However, the best films so far have been said to be those not in the English language. Let's see what happens, I'll keep my eyes and ears open...

I LOVE The Drums

I LOVE Robyn as well ;)

I was about to comment about Robyn, because her video is from a pop song in a pop context, and she sounds fresh and modern, and the video does not portray her as a slut. I hope her and Kelis to have an awesome year :D
