When I started this blog I wanted it to stay closely related to my biggest passions- visual arts. However, I'm currently really stuck on learning and working with my little designing projects, so I kind of left all of my other hobbies behind. Movies will always have a special place in my heart and I discovered that all of my favorite movies usually come to me through recommendations from my friends, family or tutors. This is why I decided to start these weekly series where I'll be interviewing my favorite bloggers about themselves and their relationship with movies. I really hope you guys will enjoy this as much as I do!
So my first guest is the greatest lady in this blogosphere world. I admire her to bits and she is one of my greatest inspirations:
I share the vintage inspired clothing that I make and rant about many things!
Hope to see you there xo
Why and when did you start your blogging?
I started blogging in March of 2012, exactly 1 year ago! When I first started, the idea was to get my name out there as I try to build my own small business, stuff happened and the business has been on the back burner for way too long. But the blog has stayed because I found this amazing community of wonderful bloggers of whom I call several good friends now. I have really come to love blogging and even though every once in a while I might feel like I need a couple of days away from it, I know that I could never let it go completely anymore.
How could you describe your 'relationships' with movies?
I feel like movies play a huge roll in my life! I remember how when I was a teen I would let certain movies influence me so much to the point of so badly wanting to live like and feel exactly what a certain character was feeling, which I believe is normal for teens but somewhat to an unhealthy degree of passion. Where as now that I'm a bit older I'm able to separate myself from the characters and see them in a different light...which can leave you kind of jaded, sometimes I wish I could still watch a movie like I did back then.
There really are way way way too many for me to choose from, since I have my favorites in every genre, there's no way of comparing a movie like Step Brothers to True Romance, Hackers, Pulp Fiction, Reality Bites or Swing Kids, etc...those are just a few movies I love, but could never choose a favorite!
This is going to sound awful...but honestly not a single one comes to mind : / I just feel like no one has really wowed me yet, I'm still waiting. However...there are many female characters I love! Vickie Miner (Janeane Garofalo's character in Reality Bites) being one of them.
Who's your favorite director and why?
I'm going to be totally honest here, I never ever pay attention to who the director is, so I wouldn't be able to give an actual answer to this one.
Step Brothers!!! We both know all the words so we always have a blast when we watch it :)
You can also hear us making Baby Mama or Elf references quite often though!
If someone would make a movie about your life what
kind of movie it might be?
Ha, sadly it would start off as a train wreck but thankfully have a happy ending :)
To keep you going through all of the drama though there would be plenty of musical numbers!
Thanks for participating in this, Alex! It was a huge honor to have you here! And guys, if any of you have a great passion for movies- let me know and leave me a link of your blog, I would love to visit your lovely places and perhaps interview you!
