Un Couteau Dans Le Coeur

I watched a movie this weekend – French, 2018 – about a serial killer that would target Gay people who appeared in cheap pornos. Badly acted, filled with absolutely forgettable characters (both the actual movie and the movie within the movie), it did offer one good insight. When the leading lady fails to seduce the… Read more »

Judah – BoJack Horseman – sings for Princess Carolyn

Guess who’s hooked on the new season of BoJack Horseman? While I think I’ll make a later post discussing the views of “toxic masculinity” and “Hollywood media accusing established actors for past transgressions” another time, there was a scene in the new season which absolutely blew me out of the water.

Love Song – Poem by Rainer Maria Rilke

How can I keep my soul in me, so that it doesn’t touch your soul? How can I raise it high enough, past you, to other things?

It’s that time of the year again when I pick one lovely poem from Eminescu (well known Romanian poet) and this year, I’ve chosen a ballad of love and yearning where the man is desperately waiting for his lover to come to him.

Most Romantic Scenes from La Boheme

I went to see La Boheme (Puccini) sung at the Sydney Opera and I was absolutely in awe of the voices and of some of the really cute and cheesy romantic dialogue. The opera follows two couples as they get together and fall apart in the turn of the century Paris. They struggle with poverty,… Read more »

When we listen to a song, it triggers a part of the brain called the auditory cortex. Researchers at Dartmouth University found that when they played part of a familiar song… Read more »

Why does Kylo Ren killing Han scene sound like a love scene?

I recently re-watched Star Wars Ep 7 the Force Awakens and I started laughing in the worst moment. When Kylo Ren was ready to kill his father, this emotional moment, this epic scene struck me as coming out of a romance movie! Read this again 🙂 but slowly.

Why I won’t get married

I’ll be turning 34 in a couple of months and I am faced with the same problems I had at 30. I knew back Then I would not get hitched and carry someone’s name. I’m still single and I’m actually loving it. I wake up when I want, I go to bed when I want…. Read more »
