If I Stay (movie): Adam Wilde of Willamette Stone

He is one of the movie characters that I wish to be real. If you have watched 'If I Stay', you will know what I mean. This movie basically has a really beautiful story that made me tear up, especially in the last parts. But what I found most powerful in this movie that really brought it to the high level of total sweetness lies on a senior boy in high school named Adam Wilde. Why, you ask? Here's why:

1.For starter, he sees the beauty of a girl (well in this case, Mia) that no one had ever discovered before. He keeps peeking on her playing cello. I love the idea of a boy who peeks at a girl while she's doing her thing haha.

2.He has a life. He sings in a cool band, Willamette Stone, which has a cool genre & got lots of gigs. He sings cool songs, for example like 'Today' by the Smashing Pumpkins. Cool song for boys to sing.

3.Even though he has a cool successful life, he is not selfish. Well yeah at first he was because of the impacts of his dark personal life in family. But then he realized that he had to change if he didn't want to lose the only 'family' he got, Mia. He doesn't want to be the jerk who limits his girl to reach her dream.

4.He doesn't care about his girl's looks. You know the terrible time for girls when they're  worried about their look in front of their BFs because they might not like it. Adam Wilde is different. He doesn't care if his girl's style looks sweet or rebellious because he's too in love with her true personality. That's the boy worth keeping.

5.He makes time & shows his efforts without being too much. He climbs to his girl's room (except for this one, maybe). He gives a beautiful charm bracelet. He decorates his girl's room ceiling. He listens. He's humble. And all the sweetnesses of him. I know. This boy surely knows how to melt something, or someone.

Adam may be similar with Augustus Waters in 'The Fault in Our Stars' but I think Adam is more relevant in the real world because at least there's the time when he put his own thing before anyone else's & fought with his girl. I mean, every relationship has a fight, right?

Shot by Karl Lagerfeld - Chanel's 'Reincarnation'

Karl Lagerfeld is an absolute brilliant. His short films are so classic, timeless, luxurious, filled with things that can totally blow me away. I think to be a part of his film project is a huge honor and extremely enviable job. Speaking of which, let us go back to his recent breathtaking film project, "Reincarnation", related to his buzzing Chanel fashion show in Austria. The set is classically beautiful with extraordinary people who starred in this film, Cara Delevingne, Pharrell Williams, and Géraldine Chaplin

1. The paintings of Cara up on the wall. 
 I dont know who painted this, and i dont know if this is a real painting or just some kind of extremely hi-tech effect. I love how the painting captures Cara's expression. It looks mysterious and classy. It really illustrates Cara as a true English royal lady, with the perfect pout and rosy cheeks.

2.Cara actually sang.
She totally sang her parts well. For an unprofessional singer, she sounded perfect though. With her sexy low British voice, she could totally sing beautifully I think. So she could balance herself with Pharrell for their singing duet on this film.

3.They were actually freestyling!
This is the cute part for me I think. It shows that even though royal people seem so formal but sometimes they can just loosen up a little bit, even with a slow and flowy music. Cool dance moves. 

One more thing that i love about this movie is the boy that appeared in this movie. He even walked for Chanel's Salzburg fashion show. Fancy.

The Pizza Underground!!!

I think this is the strangest, most creative idea that could came up with. This group of people named themself The Pizza Underground and it's sort of a band, a funny, cool band from America. They tour around US. I hope that they visit Jakarta and have a showcase or whatever. I saw their performance in Brooklyn, NY, on Youtube and found it veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrry amusing. They sang 'Baby's All Right' and in that song they talked about sausage, buffallo chicken, sauce, I thought, like, what....these people are funny and careless, which makes them cooler. They sang in straight faces and in 'unusual' melody, harmony, and lyrics of course. I think that this is one of the things that people should be doing, express their thoughts and creativity through a different work of art. Awesome stuff, you guys.

The members of the band: Matt Colbourn, Phoebe Kreutz, Deenah Vollmer, Austin Kilham, and Macaulay Culkin. Yes. The very own Macaulay Culkin that famously known for his role in Home Alone movies.

Another thing that makes me love this band is their Tumblr. They have a soooooo very creative Tumblr page. I inserted two of their pictures on my blog. I feel like I wanna print all that pictures onto plain T-shirts. I so wanna meet these people and share my experiences related
