"Throw your heart out in front of you and run ahead to catch it."
I'm not one to start something with a quote unless I'm forced to, but this quote is just so perfect. It fits so well into the adventure theme I've been talking about. I wish I could explain but the quote really speaks for itself. Since I can't rant on the quote, I'll talk about the movie it's from. Cemetery Junction is movie by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant that's set in the 1970's in Reading, England. (You can read the rest of the summary or watch it on netflix if you are still interested)
Adventure is a big theme in this movie even though they stay in their home town for the majority of the movie. Julie is one of my favourite characters in this movie because she keeps saying throughout the whole film that she wants to take pictures of things all over the world. Now I don't want to be a photographer or anything but I (and lots of other people) can relate to her character in so many ways. She wants to see the world and take it as it comes to her. So yeah, it's a pretty big deal. Not only is the movie written perfectly, but since it's based in the 70's the fashion is AMAZING, and some of the guys are total babes, too.
Not only is Julie an amazing, adventurous character, but all of her clothing throughout the whole movie is impeccable! She wears some of the best scooter dresses and skirts and blouses and jackets and shoes(You get the point.)
|and last but not least my favourite character, Bruce. can anyone say Babe-raham Lincoln?|
If you aren't convinced that this movie is perfect just go watch the trailer.
Have you ever wanted to take a journey through time and space and just never got around to it? Well now you don't have to! (there's an app for that. well actually, there probably is...I don't know.) The Mighty Boosh is a british comedy show (they also had live shows) that was around in the late 1990s and early 2000s. The main characters are Vince Noir (who's a gorgeous fashionista) and Howard Moon (who really likes jazz music) and they just get caught in the weirdest situations- whether it's working at a zoo, working at an antique store, or meeting a scaly man fish. The visuals in the show are so amazing! It's so artsy and it feels like a surreal fantasy world (but really it's just England with a twist). Umm, I don't really know what else to say about it besides that I highly recommend it and it's a favourite of mine.

In other news, I just saw The Amazing Spider-Man and it was SO GOOD. I read the comics so it was really important to me that is was accurate, and Andrew Garfield is such a cutie, and it was so perfect. Okay WOW, I'm talking about a lot of modern-ish things, so I'm going to leave you all with some things I thrifted today and a continuation of my dollar store antics.
Okay before I get to the pictures the wonderful L.M. Strange took, I want you all to know that where we are in the pictures are at my house. I live in the country and we own 20 acres of land and it's gorgeous and an adventure within itself.
|This is probably my favourite picture out of the whole set. It's got that whole girl gang sort of vibe to it and I'm loving it.|

|So my driveway is right next to a bridge for a creek and I swear it's so damn beautiful under the bridge. It's seriously breath-taking|
|these last three were photoshopped by L.M. and I love what she did to them ♥|
I felt like the best way to sum up this post was with The Beatles. Enjoy.
