PEDRO! What can I say about this man, other than he is a extraordinary movie maker. He his my favorite film director. He embodies everything I love...scandalous story lines, colorful and twisted characters and best of all the Spanish allure and drama we crave! I have almost seen all of his films and never miss any opportunity to catch them on the big screen. It is nearly impossible to pick a favorite film as each one is so different yet have such distinct Almodovar trademarks. I adore his character development, lighting, dialogues, art direction, cast, editing, music, and scenery. Yes, his movies are PERFECTION! He is currently on the cover of Hercules magazine which comes out of Barcelona....(looking quite handsome) A must have issue! All I can say is GENIUS! Go see his movies boys and girls...you will know what I mean....TRUST!

I am a big fan of Edison light bulbs, through which you can see the filaments. They look great and cast a really nice, clean light. Basically a light you can get close to and not see everyone's pores! These look great in restaurants, as many have already adapted the look and are a great alternative to the obvious tea lights. I have a couple of lamps including the one on top of the page with its antique flair on my computer desk, as well as another type next to my bed. The look is sexy and romantic. Very much needed these days! Get them online in various filament configurations (squirrel cage/40watts is best), and feel the glow tonite! Trust me their quite gorgeous...
Gone are the days where one measured, spaced and endlessly worried about drilling, nailing and poking holes on to their precious walls. For a less formal, salon/gallery look, one turns to the "unhung" ways of grouping artwork, mirrors and photos for an ever changing exhibition. Whether you decide on a "clustering" effect, an overlapping look, or a minimal presentation, the effect is that of a relaxed mode of display that doesn't read into the formalities of anal home decorating and display. Try using different frames, artwork and sizes as well as well-edited objects for total impact. The best aspect of unhung method is left to the imagination and allows ease of constant change and experimentation as one grows in their collection and moods. "Show queens" rejoice!
