I felt like the biggest grandma in this ensemble...walking around in a silk scarf, LOAFERS, pearl bracelets, a cardigan. All I would have needed to complete the look would be a little dog in a handbag. Do the elderly usually carry little dogs in handbags? Or maybe thats just the Parisian elderly ladies in my head.
Basically the whole day was about hanging around in Borders and watching Fantastic Mr. Fox. WHICH IS, BY THE WAY, AN AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING MOVIE. Honestly, one of Anderson's best work. I was a bit unsure about the idea of Wes + an animation, but ugh. It surpassed my expectations. It was such a typical Wes Anderson film too. From the extreme use of Futura (I've grown to love this font so much due to his movies), to his wide angle pannning and Jason Schwartzman (who was so brilliant as Ash). There was even a sub plot about the relationship between father/son. Typical Wes. George Clooney made a stop motion fox charming and handsome. I laughed so many times and the mushy moments weren't too mushy. WELL DONE, WES. My eyes thank you for countless visual orgasms. One thing that really disappointed me - the attendance. Fantastic Mr. Fox has only been out for TWO days, and the session I attended had only 10 people. WHAT? Makes me want to throw bull ants on fire at kittens.
And the project we were meant to do - taking photos of people and their favourite books + one word to sum it all up, didn't go that well. Rejections, strange looks and suspicion, which ultimately resulted in us legging it from Borders. My two favourite are up there though. The kid wrote "Ninjas" and the lovely lady - Rosemary - wrote "intuitive". She was telling us about how in the ~olden days~ handwriting was an art and it was taught in school.
