Gray Malin

'A La Plage', 2012.

Shooting from door-less helicopters, this series has been photographed from Europe to Australia. From above, people and objects become patterns, creating repetition, shape and form. Malin’s photographs are a visual celebration of color, light, shape—and summer bliss. On a trip to Las Vegas, looking from on one of the highest floors of a massive hotel, he became intrigued by the spectacle and the perspective of the beach below. For him this view captured the essence, the color and vibrancy, the elements of play and relaxation, and the beauty of water just perfectly.

Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging (#114)

As a teenager I absolutely adored these books, cringing over Georgia’s exploits, taking notes when she accomplished things, and generally laughing at her predicaments. She’s a great character brought vivaciously to life by Georgia Groome. The rest of the cast is also quite good: note just how dishy Aaron Taylor-Johnson is, as well as the hilarity of Karen Taylor and Alan Davies. Gurinder Chadha handles her teen drama with a light hand and lovely soundtrack that makes it all feel like that the 14 and 15 year olds in us wish our semester in Brighton could be. Total teenage fluff and I absolutely enjoyed it. :)

I saw this book profiled on a twitter link the other day and can’t stop thinking about how it was made for me. It’s called A Map of the World: The World According to Illustrators and Storytellers and looks like heaven. At $40 off Amazon it’s way out of my price range but is an early addition to the Christmas list for sure.

For the famous “Mouth of Truth” scene, Gregory Peck ad-libbed the joke where he pretends that his hand was bitten off in the mouth of the stone carving. Prior to filming the scene, Peck told director William Wyler that he was going to do the gag, but that they should not tell Audrey Hepburn. When Peck pulled his arm out of the stone carving’s mouth with his hand pulled up his sleeve, Hepburn’s horror and surprise was genuine. She gave what she later recalled was “a good and proper scream,” and the scene was finished in one take.
