At last! Another great Tarantino Film

Django Unchained is the best movie I have seen in a while.  Like all Tarantino films it is not for the squeamish as there is a fair bit of stage blood.   It has Leonardo Di Caprio who normally gives me the pip but as he is playing such an evil character I can cope with him.  A fantastic tale of revenge, cowboys, vicious slavers, gunfights, and love. Perfect casting, script and soundtrack. It is more than 2 1/2 hours long but I didn't notice.

Royal Portrait

This really is the most shocking effort. I wonder how much the guy got paid to make a pretty young woman look sinister?

 On the other hand, Calfy's friend Giselle prduced this,


 Her Majesty's True Self

Oil on canvas 

I know which one I'd rather hang in the guest spare.

Update for WOAR

Happy New Year!

Calfy often brings excellent things on the internet to my attention.   Last year she went to see these guys at our local flea pit.  Very dancey...combining swing and techno and fab lyrics.   The first I dedicate to Raedwald, who's daily blog is a must read.  The second I dedicate to E-K whom I personally adore, who is a lovely husband and dad and is always getting into scrapes.

And thank you Capitalists at Work, Bishop Hill, Anthony Watts, Anna Raccoon and Hatfield Girl for keeping us informed of what is actually going on out there with a special mention for  more favorites, Woman on a Raft, Idle and Scroblene.  I love you all!
