Kylie's Comeback

'White Diamond: A Personal Portrait of Kylie Minogue' is an intimate fly-on-the-shoulder documentary about post-cancer Kylie, and her emotional return to the stage she calls her "other home". Throughout, the star displays nothing but affability and elicits a deep respect for what she has achieved both before and after her diagnosis, leaving you sure that were you to meet her, she would undoubtedly be very, very nice indeed.
Kylie showed Madge a thing or too about courtesy and generally being lovely, talented, but not completely egocentric. I might consider becoming a fan, after all Bono is!

British Boxes

Blake on red phone boxes, I'm thinking of buying one for the garden BTW, well I was until I saw how much they are. I was pondering today about blog inactivity, a few of my favourites have just disappeared, without any word of explanation. No melodramatic diatribes or intent of opting out. Then another returned, & I really can't work out what happened with her "estranged" sister, one of the disappeared. Feeling low as a low thing can feel today, I wondered if my inability to consistently post means that nobody is out there any more. Melancholia unexpecteda has descended & I am lonely even with someone else in the house. It doesn't seem to bear unpacking to an absent audience. I feel a bit like this phone box although that wasn't why I picked the picture!

M for mmm

Mostly Miu Miu & a bit of Marc Jacobs. This is my lookbook for Fall 07 & what I might look like if I had more money, meanwhile, am about to sort my wardrobe out and see which elements might meet up to this fantasy.

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leafs a flower;

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay.

Missing Stephen

The Daily Mail rarely for speaks out, in the defence of some, so it was an oddity that they named the suspects in the Stephen Lawrence case. When the paper ran a banner headline in 1997; branding five Londoners "murderers" of Stephen Lawrence, a black teenager, it earned the ire of many lawyers, judges and journalists. Three of the men had been acquitted by a jury, and a judge had dismissed the charges against the other two.
Today The Daily Mail tells us that they are set to be re-arrested because foresensic techniques have developed and produced new evidence. The inquiry into the case has been formative but the five white teenagers, who probably killed Stephen, have evaded prosecution. Today I looked at a this photograph of a fine young man and wondered if his parents can ever not miss him, I think not.
