Meet Mimi Berlin Senior and Senior

Hello! Meet Mimi Berlin Senior and Senior. Obviously they are twins. They aren’t amongst the living anymore. But they still are in our thoughts and inspire us everyday to create, decorate and collect everything. #collectingeverythingMeet Mimi Berlin Senior and Senior
We love that they wear the same outfit! And look at those pied de coq checkered tops splatting from your screen. We can’t keep the apart! (not true)
Have a nice day xoxo Mimi

The Shangri Las

The Shangri Las

The Shangri Las are a girl pop group from the 1960s, They were a bit different from other Girl Groups back then. (groups which name starts with The, similar dressed trio’s with two background singers etc.) because they came from Queens, New York which also was part of the ‘though’ image they had. The Shangri Las recorded songs about alienation, loneliness, abandonment and death, well all the stuff a teenager finds interesting…. Our personal favorites are ‘The leader of the pack’, ‘Sophisticated Boom Boom’ and ‘I Can Never Go Home Anymore’. We could only find one of our favorite songs on video, but never mind that; the girls are a feast to the eye in action, with their tight boots, big hair and shrilly voices. Have a nive day! xoxo Mimi



Yes! the ‘background’ singers are twins! Continue reading

Perdita Durango

Who are you, Perdita Durango ?


Absolutelyfascinating(via)

Isabella Rossellini andHannah Kozak dressed as Perdita Durango in the 1990 American film Wild at heart, written and directed by David Lynch, based on Barry Gifford’s 1989 novel Wild at Heart: The Story of Sailor and Lula – Part 1 in the Sailor and Lula series (1990)

Far less known is the crime-horror movie about Perdita Durango, played by Rosie Perez and directed by Álex de la Iglesia in 1997. It’s based on Barry Gifford’s novel 59° and Raining: The Story of Perdita Durango – Part 3 in the Sailor and Lula series (1992) We do not recommend this movie, it’sheavy and violent, with lot’s of blood, killing, rape etc.(via)

We don’t know if Ms Perez had a stunt-double in Perdita Durango. We do know that Rosie Perez was severely injured filming a scene for ‘Law and Order: SVU’ in 2007. And she definitely needed a stunt-double at that time.(via) Anyways, to round this story up: Illustrator Scott Gillis has turned Barry Gifford’s novella Perdita Durango into a graphic novel in 1995.(buy)
We’re not sure if anybody ever heard anything about Perdita since then
