C'est Magnifique

It seems everyone is always going on about how fabulous Paris, and France in general, is. I've never been there, so I reserve the right to hold back my judgement, but, I must say, the French sure know how to do things right. Fashion, music, films, food... I've been sucked into it all lately.

Paris Je T'aime isn't the greatest movie I've ever seen, but the Parisian scenes and soundtrack (especially "We're all in the Dance" by Feist) make it worth renting.

Ariane Moffatt's newest album, Tous les sens is the perfect mix of eclectic pop, it's upbeat and fun, and the perfect spring album.

After listening to one of my friends go on and on about Les Choristes, I finally decided to rent it. The only thing more beautiful than the movie itself is the gorgeous soundtrack.

Lastly, is a young French-Canadian whose music I discovered on one of my random iTunes downloading fests. Coeur de Pirate's debut album has been on constant replay since I purchased it. Although I can't understand the words to her self-written songs, I can understand the emotions behind them.

P.S.- I promise to return this weekend with a real blog entry. Complete with pictures. Forgive my extended absence from the blogosphere. Uni has kept me dreadfully busy!

Les Choristes is a lovely movie. And i do recomend Le fabeleux destin d'amelie poulin, as well! It's my number one favourite. I hope you get the chance to go to Paris soon, I have been there twice - and LOVE la ville!
