What a freaking awesome movie….!!!!
Just came acrross on IFC channel. ( taking a break from Barcelona writting…) No need to explain, Just watch the movie.
What a great movie! Saw it again and falling in love all over again with Woody. Woody’s genius witty lines and Woodie’s love for NYC. Adorable and lost Annie and hilarious and depressed Alvy. Woody’s study on Annie and Alvy’s relationship is classic yet so refreshing. And True. His ability to articulate all of that in such details. Ha! Only Woody Allen can do. All the scenes around beautiful 1977’s New York City. Here I feel almost sort of triumphant of being a New Yorker all the way having come from Seoul. Yes I feel proud!
And Can we talk about their matching couple outfits?! So subtle yet Super obviously matching outfits just add more fun to this delicious film.
After their meeting for the first time at Annie’s home and her famous boy meets girl khaki pant, white shirt, the vest and the neck tie. Sort of Gap in a nostalgic way… And Alvy looks handsome(?) in a simple white shirt.
Annie storming off the NY street after her first lousy audition for singing at a small bar… love her wide leg pants!
Alvy convincing Annie how good she was no matter what and making a deal to get over with “Having a first kiss” .
What a smart couple! Remember the first book Alvy gets Annie? At the book store.
Sort of confessing how much they love ( or Alvy insists more like L-O-V-E) each other. Love this scene with Brooklyn Bridge behind. Pretty romantic, ha?
Hahhahaha, love this Scene. Look how fabulous Annie’s shrink’s office is and her green Crock.
At their friend’s Party. Woody sneeze over couple grand worth substance here. Hahaha. The shirt and the vest.
Their amicable breaking up/ moving out matching outfits. that’s that first book Alvy got Annie for her cat.
Annie and Alvy in NYC. Ahhh INSPIRED!! Now, I’m off to MOMA and get lost in the city today!
Fall in Love with New York Again folks!

Quote from Wikipedia:
Liquid Sky is an independent American film produced in 1983 with a budget of $500,000. It won a cult following shortly after its release. In New York, Boston and Washington D.C. the film played non-stop for more than three years and grossed more than a million dollars in each city. Liquid Sky was the recipient of five international film festival awards. In April 16, 2009 Dan Person of current.com recalls that upon its release Liquid Sky “provoked heated arguments and, love it or hate, was required viewing for anyone who really cared about film.” Dan Person considers the film “one of the formative forces of indie film. “ Carlos James Chamberlin wrote in March, 2004 at senseofcinema.com: “It’s about time people started rendering unto Liquid Sky. Its long lipstick trace is smudged through much of indie cinema.”
Thank you Michael H Berkowitz!!
Edgar is our main contact for our interest in real estate in Tulum. The more we travel the more interesting people we meet. We meet we talk we share. From Mexico city to Tulum changing his life yet growing bigger dream to build a top notch artist, sound and photo studio in the middle of jungle of Tulum. Meet our new friend, Edgar and his Sound Design for Hasta Los Huesos!
Edgar says, “Well, Hasta los Huesos is a 9 minute short film that took 2 years and a half to finish it, you know, everything was sponsored, materials, film, and everybody’s work. About 80% of the sound design was made specifically for this short and the other 20% was from sound libraries. It took me almost 4 months to do the 9 minutes, and mix it in THX.
I remember playing 64 tracks at the same time, it was awesome! The music was done by the best Mexican rock band called Cafe Tacuba. The animation is in stop motion which is frame by frame, and the director is Rene Castillo from Guadalajara.”
Long chatting and long night over the bottles of wine with Edgar and Jorje at Edgar’s home. Great place and great time!
Edgar, Thank you for having us. Gracias por la tua Hospitalidad!! Keep building your sound and dream!
The thing is I am not from US. I came to America, well to NY ( and NY is really not America) when I was well grown up of age, 22-23? So, I kind of guess what it is all like but I’ll only learn through Gael growing up here in Brooklyn. But again it will be never the same as how it was then.
The interesting thing is that now we have the movie Sophomore directed by T.lee Beideck, then there is a short film made by designer Sophomore for their Spring 2010 collection, practically a look book. And I’m loving the juxtapose of what then and then of the fresh 10th grades. The naive and fun nostalgia of Beideck’s movie VS raw and freshness of Sophomores moment in time for Designer Chrissie Miller. It’s almost like dorks VS cool kids.
Now check these out. I love them.
The film, Sophomore written and directed by T.Lee Beideck
Sophomore Spring 2010 look book directed by Cass Bird.

10 day non stop hard work dry stress was broken into pieces by Avatar’s greatest fantasy at it’s max. Thank you James Cameron.
By the way, the movie reminded me of Alexander McQueen’s Spring 10 runway.
