great gatsby!

The moment all Baz Luhrmann fans have been waiting for has finally arrived- the trailer for The Great Gatsby is here for your viewing pleasure. The films release date is December which seems an interminable amount of time to wait, but perhaps your chance to re-read the book? Or time to get over the fact that they made it 3D which I hate. 3D is a ridiculous thing to do to a movie, a viewing experience worthy of cartoons and youngsters. If you want 3D get out of the theater and do something, for real.
In case you don’t already know, here’s the scoop on the film- The Great Gatsby is an upcoming American 3D romantic drama film adaptation of writer F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 1925 novel of the same name. Directed by Baz Luhrmann, and starring Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby, Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan, and Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway. Amitabh Bachchan as Meyer Wolfsheim and Brendan Maclean as Klipspringer are set to make their Hollywood debuts in this film.

Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby= fantastic.

a little bit famous

This past Christmas, my lovely spouse gave me this piece of artwork by Fidalis Buehler (pictured next to art by Cassandra Barney and a ceramic piece we picked up in Greece, I can’t remember the artists name).
It’s one of Fidalis’ collaged pieces of art made with bits of fabric, paper, glitter, etc…, then coated in resin. We recently discovered,  before it came to live in my house- frozen in time- The Golden had a little adventure of it’s own…

What, that’s it? I want more- what else happened to the little fella? I guess the rest is up to you own imagination. Needless to say, we love Fidalis art and feel stoked to have The Golden running along the wall of our house.

A few more lovely pieces by Fidalis Buehler to enjoy…
