BastillePosted: July 14, 2014
Any French reader out there? Happy Bastille Day! This is my interpretation of this week’s SIA inspiration, Egon Schiele’s “Portrait of Elisabeth Lederer”, and appropriately enough, the red-white-blue theme fits right in with Bastille Day. At first I considered wearing one of my white dresses with a blue scarf, but it’s too hot for that, so here’s what I did instead. The full round-up post will be live tomorrow, so remember to check back!
In other, totally unrelated news, yesterday I was shocked to learn that none of the students in my workshop has even heard of Babe (we were discussing films featuring animals), let alone seen it. None!!! They were all like, “We were born in 1998, how are we supposed to know about a film from 1995?” and I was like “But it’s a classic!” It was just like that scene in School of Rock when Jack Black lists off the name of rock bands and the kids just stare blankly back at him so he screams “Ah, what do they teach in this place?!”, you know? I know sometimes I make references that are way too obscure for the average Vietnamese high school/college students, but Babe is not exactly obscure, is it? And they’re supposed to be film buffs, that’s why they’re taking a filmmaking workshop! Kids these days, man…
