Welcome to another intergalactic edition of cool and interesting things from the internet that I’ve channeled from another dimension straight into your mind. I hope you enjoy these my friends…
I have always been fascinated by and sort of in love with Audrey Tatou and her mysterious, gentle, quirky film personas, especially in Amelie, one of my favourite films. She has been photographing herself for years. Found on the always enjoyable blog filled with endless treasures – Miscellaneous Details.
I have a physical copy of this book and it is very insightful and soothing for when you have days when you want to and need to come back to yourself, be grounded in your breath and heartbeat.
Personally, I love the still silence and the eerie otherworldliness of these paintings, looking at them is like staring into a dream of the unconscious.
Born in 1976 in Den Helder, The Netherlands, Victor Muller studied art at the Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam.
He creates a world he wants to live in, a place of silence, the eternity of the moment where escape from the hectic daily live is achieved. The notion of timeless is very important for him. He combines his landscapes with still lives on the foreground. The still life and the landscape together form a combination of a timeless atmosphere.Morren Galleries, NL
The light in his paintings is always muted and filtered, there is no black or whitest white. In the paintings the background is a still life as well as the foreground. Against the backdrop of a tight staged, Tuscan landscape he places a composition of utensils, which each look like coming from ancient times. The matured still life – literally a ‘natura morta’- strengthened the stillness of the ‘eternal’ landscape behind it, an atmosphere of timelessness.

I have been so excited to try this one! Made with roasted eggplant, lentil ragu and vegan cheese!
I wish I could go to the markets and have this guy serenade me, “Come on ladies, come on ladies – £1 Fish”, it’s literally better than most of the music of these days.
This dreamy, celestial art by Googie McCabe captured my imagination and it soothes my soul.

The size of a wooly mammoth they had a large horn on their forehead and commanded a strong presence on the tundra, weighing an impressive 4 tonnes, 4.5 metres long and 2 metres high. What an armoured tank!
I treat my hair regularly and love DIY and homemade concotions of cupboard ingredients, as at least I know exactly what I’m using on my body. Here’s a great decoction (I love this word!) to help if you have dry brittle, colour-treated hair from witchy and wise blogger Come Home Witch.
Why does my heart feel so bad? by Moby
This is an orchestral and acoustic, animated version of possibly one of the most powerful and moving of Moby’s songs, ‘Why does my heart feel so bad?’
This time, the song is animated show the devastation wrought on the natural world by humans, in this present extinction event that we are currently living through. Prepare to cry here but if this turns you into an activist – you’re welcome! And if you want to know what you can do to help – start here – you’re welcome!
Keeping on the horn theme here…but why did (and still do) humans feel the need to hunt animals, it’s just disgusting, cruel and unnecessary.
