Happy Monday dolls! As per usual, the beginning of a new month is reserved for new recommendation post. So let's start!
BLOG: New Darlings
First thing I want to recommend you is one super cute blog, named New Darlings. I discovered it couple of days ago through instagram. It is a blog by Robert and Christina, husband and wife, based in Phoenix, Arizona. New Darlings is a photo diary of their everyday life, things they love and their personal style.

MOVIE: Ghost World (2001)
I guess that most of you already watched this movie. For those who didn't here are my honest recommendations to do it. And for those who did after this you might want to watch it again. Based on the well-known comic, Ghost World tells the story of neo-cool Enid (Thora Birch) and Rebecca (Scarlett Johansson) who, faced with high school graduation take a hard look at the world they wryly observe and decide what they really want. Both have problems relating to people and they spend their time hanging around and bothering creeps. When they meet Seymour (Steve Buscemi, one of my favorite actors) who is a social outsider who loves to collect old 78 records, Enid's life will change forever. In essence, a girl-meets-boy story, a sort of coming of age tale, where the main protagonist, Enid, finds actions have consequences! The movie's main targets are people who betray themselves in an effort to fit in, and their resulting stupidity by doing so. So, this is not just another stupid, boring teenage movie but thought-provoking one, that helps you find something about yourself.
MUSIC: The Black Angels - Passover (2006)
Lately I'm totally into psychedelic rock, but so far I haven't found a band, or even an album (including other Black Angels albums) that sounds anything like this. Passover is brilliant from start to finish, and the fact that there's nothing like it means when it's done, it's done. Though at the same time, it's uniqueness is one of the many things that makes this not only an incredible album, but one of my all time favorite albums. The album opens with The Black Angels's most famous song, "Young Men Dead." Like many fans of the band, this is what got me into it. I heard it in TV series "True Detective" (actually as a closing theme of the first episode) and fell in love with it. Later I found a whole album and was totally surprised how every single song on the album sounds so good. Amazing vocals, memorable riffs, the grippings, heavy bass, drum beats, everything is just perfect! If you liked listening to Velvet Underground and the Doors you're gonna love this album and this band!
PHOTOGRAPHY: Charlotte Grimm
For the end I'd like to invite you to check one amazing photographer - Charlotte Grimm. Dark Beauty Magazine is such cool source for discovering amazing, talented artists. That's how I found about Charlotte. I was smitten by one of her photographs that I found there and had to find more of here work. Charlotte is a 21 year old dreadheaded, catloving artaddict from Leipzig, Germany. I found her portfolio and was totally amazed by each and every moment she captured in her photographs. To her, photography is not merely picturetaking. It is capturing memories, the essence of a moment, the smallest glimpse of a person you might have only met minutes before.
