Happy Birthday, Archie Leach!

Posted in Birthday, Cary Grant, Classic Film at 10:14 pm by aiwish472

I think it was in May when I first saw Bringing Up Baby. Maybe it was June.  It’s strange that I don’t remember, since Bringing Up Baby was a lot of firsts for me.  To start, it was my first screwball comedy – every old movie I’d watched before then was a film noir.  I’m grateful for that. Screwball comedies are one of my favorite genres of movies.  It was also my first movie with Katharine Hepburn.  I mean, that’s pretty damn important, since Katharine Hepburn is very important. (Yay Katie!) And then there was Katie’s co-star, the man playing David.  It was my first movie of his, too.

聖なる鐘がひびく夜 ~the bells of St. Mary’s version~

Posted in Birthday, Classic Film, Ingrid Bergman at 7:26 am by aiwish472

Today is August 29.

Today is a day of happiness and joy.

On this day in 1915 – 93 years ago, a little baby named Ingrid Bergman was born.

Baby Ingrid would grow up to be one of the most popular and respected actresses of the 1940s, and one of the greatest actresses of all time.

The Thin Man

Posted in Asta, Classic Film, Myrna Loy, Review, William Powell at 3:07 am by aiwish472

I was a fan of The Thin Man before I even watched it. It was all because of Asta, the little terrier who you’ll fall in love with at first glance. Promotional pictures featuring him are just too cute. I don’t remember where I first saw or heard of Asta…it wasn’t in Bringing Up Baby, which was the first movie I saw that featured Asta. Regardless, I saw him somewhere, and looked around for more information. I came across an Asta fansite. When the site wasn’t talking about Asta, it was mentioning three things: The Thin Man, William Powell, and Myrna Loy.

Although I had become a fan of Asta quickly, I didn’t bother to find out anything about The Thin Man right away. Why I didn’t is beyond me…I was beginning to become a fan of Loy, too. I finally watched the movie after a joke about terriers and Asta at dinner one night, and I am so glad that I did.

桜の花びらたちが はらはら。。。

Posted in AKB48, Chocolove, Classic Film, Hello!Project at 2:40 pm by aiwish472

I still like Hello!Project. I really do. But my interest in it…is not the same as it was a month ago, even a couple weeks ago. It could be getting old. I’ve mentioned in another entry that I get bored easily. Or it could be that I’m not satisfied with the current condition of Hello!Project, which is noticeable in a few very dissatisfied recent entries here. They often express a strange state of nostalgia that really never existed. You may also have noticed that I’ve taken on another interest: classic film and the actors/actresses from old Hollywood. But there’s more.

I’ve also found myself listening to more Johnnys, and even more AKB48. I don’t know why AKB48. Actually, no. I do. Their music is good. Even if they’re twice as provocative, and sell four times more sex than Hello!Project, I’ve really been catching on to their music. I also used to like Chocolove, but now I love Chocolove. And I couldn’t have loved it without…

The following is a whole bunch of thoughts. Or just random things that I wanted to mention. XD Some are serious, some are silly. Some are Hello!Project related, others are not. The links don’t always appear blue for some reason, so hover your mouse a bit. Have fun.

(636 words and 32 categories, 8 of which I’ll probably never use again! WOO!)

I Can’t Believe I Just Noticed This.

Posted in Audrey Hepburn, CD Covers, Classic Film, Hello!Project, Morning Musume at 1:42 am by aiwish472

Not only did I just notice the resemblance as a whole but…
Yossy’s hat = Audrey’s hat? NO WAY. Favorite MM member’s hat = Second favorite actress’ hat? Really?

Really. Yes way. =D

Edit: So I’m watching the new 9nine PV, and look who’s on this member’s (sorry, I don’t know their names yet) top.

HEY IT’S AUDREY HEPBURN AGAIN! ^_^

IF YOU ARE A MIYABI FAN, DON’T READ THIS. Instead, pay attention to this collage of kawaii overload which contains bunnies, puppies, bears, Hello!Project Eggs, Berries, C-ute, Morning Musume, classic film stars (the ones shown ARE kawaii, well, just in the pictures used, so not really…la la la… if you’re bothered by it look at the snowy owl), a duck with a lamb, kirigumi, Kamenashi Kazuya, Curious George, and yes, a snowy owl. 😀 Click to see the full picture.
