Tumbleweeds! - Attention aspiring writers - you can actually live for a few days (or weeks, or in one case SEVEN YEARS) in Paris' Shakespeare and Company Bookshop! Bed down among the books, nestle in with your favourite novels and dream among the greatest stories ever told - all for the bargain price of two hours work and a novel reading per day and a 1 page biography. Writers have been staying at the Shakespeare and Company bookshop for the last 50 years. I've been in the bookshop and it is crowded with literature. It's hard to imagine where these little cot beds are stashed away but apparently they are hidden all over the shop!
Great Pâté mom, but I gotta motor - Blacker than the dead of night teen comedy Heathers is 25 years old.
Very tragic and slightly creepy co-incidences. The film is an old favourite of mine and though of course it's dated that same dated-ness works in it's favour because we all canonise our teenage years along with their questionable slang and oversized/undersized clothing trends.
"Teenagers didn’t always exist. They had to be invented. As the cultural landscape around the world was thrown into turmoil during the industrial revolution, and with a chasm erupting between adults and youth, the concept of a new generation took shape."
