Vogue Original Shorts - Lena Dunham and Hamish Bowles

"The cover shoot is happening tomorrow and i don´t know how to Pose!" an exasperated Lena Dunham yells nervously at Vogue´s Hamish Bowles through the phone. Proving that your very first Vogue shot is far from easy, the Girls creator and the magazine´s editor-at-large star in an endearing short film (directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman), that reveals just how she came to be yanking her polka dot collar from her neck on this month´s cover.

Notes on Blindness

"In 1983, after years of deteriorating vision, the writer and theologian John Hull lost the last traces of light sensation. For the next three years, he kept a diary on audio-cassette of his interior world of blindness. This film is a dramatization that uses his original recordings. Recently, John Hull responded to the diary entries in the film, reflecting on his memories of sight, alarm at the onset of darkness and his eventual discovery of beauty."

HAPYY NEW YEAR!

Life is short. Break the rules. Forgive quickly. Kiss Slowly. Love truly. Spank the monkeys. Laugh uncontrollably. And never forget anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we´re here WE SHOULD DANCE. So let´s start the New Year with the new music video by Metronomy.

The video directed by Edouard Salier has a distinct 2001:A Space Odyssey/Gravity-vibe to it. It features frontman Joseph Mount travelling the universe in a spaceship, before running into some sort of cat-goddess. It’s a song about star-crossed lovers, horoscopes and break-ups.
