a peak inside jane campion's scrapbook

I'm so looking forward to seeing Jane Campion's newest film Bright Star, about John Keats and his brief love affair with his neighbour, Fanny Brawne. Apparently, the film emphasises Fanny's love of fashion and her talents at sewing and dressmaking. So I hope that means that we can expect to see a parade of lovely 19th century dresses. I think these snippets from Jane Campion's scrapbook- poems on parchment, intricately folded love letters, photographs of morning light through wintery trees and art department sketches are so romantic and tantalising. It looks as if the film will be beautiful but restrained- Slate has even described its visual style as "austere" - but I think that will just make these pretty little details seem all the lovelier.

i still like the like, i guess...

Well, it's been four years since The Like's last album. Although, when it comes to The Like, I'm inclined to feel that their albums are hardly point- it's more about the outfits. Nonetheless, they have recently announced a change in lineup, as well as a new record in the works. As Buzz Bands reports: "frontwoman Z Berg and drummer Tennessee Thomas remain from the original lineup; bassist Laena Geronimo has replaced Charlotte Froom, who departed to work on other projects; and Reni Lane joins to play keyboards. The Like’s new Mark Ronson-produced album will be released in early 2010."

However, the band still appear to enjoy taking lots of photos of themselves in cute outfits.* And Tennessee is still freaking adorable. So provided this continues, I'm okay with the change.

*although someone needs to have a quiet word to Z about the pitfalls of pleather.
