coppola crush

other than being a film director, actress, producer and Academy Award-winning screenwriter; Sophia Coppola is also my inspiration for my girl crush post. wooo! she's the daughter of set decorator/artist Eleanor (née Neil) and director Francis Ford Coppola, granddaughter of the late composer Carmine Coppola, sister of Roman Coppola and the late Gian-Carlo Coppola, niece of Talia Shire and a cousin of Nicolas Cage, Jason Schwartzman and Robert Carmine. kay, so i don't know who some of those people are, but it seems inevitable that she'd become famous too. and though my dad always gets mad that daughters or sons of famous actors can become famous too although they have no acting talent, i think Coppola has found success based on merit. i'm watching Lost in Translation for the second time this week and it really has the perfect combination of humor, aesthetics, and emotion. her soundtracks and imagery are always incredible. and so is... her style! she interned with Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel when she was in high school. and she modeled for Marc Jacobs. i guess he also named some bag after her.. anyway. she knows what she's doing. U GO GRL!~

well, i didn't actually buy my ticket yet..

who’s going to the TREASURE ISLAND MUSIC FESTIVAL? everyone go!! well, how about just the second day, since that’s the day i’m goin’. the only band i’d be interested in seeing on the first day is the Foals anyway. we’re supposed to be excited for Justice, Hot Chip, and TV on the Radio (though all but one of their songs are boooring—shhh, don’t tell Cami i said that!) but i don’t really care. mostly, i’m excited for TOKYO POLICE CLUB!! i mean, where have i been? it’s not that i recently discovered them, but it took me a while to realize how much i liked them. they’re canadian. their music is fun. AND they’re cute enough to be on Misha’s “BF list.” (check my facebook album to see what i’m talkin’ about). also, if you haven’t already heard, Vampire Weekend’s gonna be there. Read dis. not to mention, Tegan & Sara, the Dodos, and the Raconteurs. DL some of my favorite songs by the artists playing on the second day of TIMF. then GO (to the festival… not away from this page)
