Love Like A Sunset

I was back home in the south of France last weekend, hanging out on the beach, eating delicious seafood, spending time with family and celebrating with friends the famous french Crêpes party called Chandeleur. Let me share with you those few insta-clichés which come directly from what I call: gold moments ❤

Tuesday Sounds Like – Blue – R.E.M.

The  city of angels viewed through James Franco eyes on a R.E.M.‘s melancolic melody… such beautiful.
Last year, James Franco signed on to work with R.E.M. on two music videos as part of the Collapse Into Now Film Project. The video for “That Something Is You” never materialized, but just yesterday, a year-and-a-half after the release of Collapse Into Now, the video for “Blue” (a song featuring Patti Smith) appeared.
It’s a  blurry, flyover portrait of Los Angeles, from Chateau Marmont where Terry shot Lindsey Lohan to James shot himself, filming footage of L.A. from an helicopter. I also recognized few things from Franco’s films/projects which were presented at the Rebel’s exhibition last spring in LA!

So let’s enjoy and dream 🙂

Cartes Postales from Budapest

Salut everybody, I just came back from a magic trip in Hungaria where I spent few days in the beautiful Budapest.

The indian summer lights and the Danube, the castle and its incredible view, the Gellert Baths, the traditional Szamos cake and the delicious Goulash… it was just  perfect! A special “clin d’oeil” to Airbnb and our host David who made it possible with  a mega great flat in the center of the city. I won’t say more, pictures will talk for me…Viszlát!

7 For All Mankind x James Franco x Hollywood Resurrection

7 For All Mankind can’t get enough of James Franco. The LA-based denim label has once again tapped the multi-hyphenate actor to direct it’s latest campaign film. For the Fall/Winter 2013 Campaign, James runs around with supermodels Lily Donaldson and Lou Dillion in graveyards, old movie theaters, and rooftops ending in a massive red paint fight.

Face paced, lively, and invigorating, the campaign offers a darker perspective on this Californian brand. Shot in lavish locations, Franco isn’t afraid to get a little dirty to achieve his look. As he said, “I am trying to access is memory and how we deal with memory, what that means, how we remember people and who creates the lasting images of people.”. Parties, rock and roll, and paint fights.

James Franco x James Dean – “Rebel” exhibit at the MoCA L.A

Actor, director, writer… James Franco is a multi-talented artist! While being in LA last week, I had the curiousity and pleasure to have a look at his new art project.

“Rebel” was created by James Franco himself with Douglas Gordon, Harmony Korine, Damon McCarthy, Paul McCarthy, Terry Richardson, Ed Ruscha and Aaron Young.

The avant-garde exhibition is a mixture of mediums including film, video installation, photography, painting, drawing and sculpture, inspired by the movie “Rebel Without a Cause” featuring James Dean.

It was taking place at the JF Chen in Hollywood. The place was transformed into vignettes modeled after the Chateau Marmont. Often referred simply as to the Chateau, it marks it’s place in Hollywood history by not only being the auditioning location for James Dean’s role in the classic film “Rebel Without a Cause” but by being replicated and inspiring the whole exhibit model for “Rebel” after the same film.

The highlight?  One six-minute video involves a gang of girls on BMX bikes flailing machetes at Franco while he holds aloft a severed prosthetic head of Dean.

In collaboration with MOCA, the James Franco Rebel exhibit continues through June 23rd, Tuesday through Saturday from 11 am – 5pm at 941 North Highland Avenue, Los Angeles. Admission is free. Definitely something to check-out!
