werner herzog is making life grand...

1. STYLE: Katherine Hepburn

There is no single being whose style I admire more.

2. IMAGES: Takashi Homma

Born in 1962 in Japan, this phenominal photographer has a truly amazing body of work. I wish I had a copy of Tokyo Suburbia for my very own.

3. GENIUS: Werner Herzog

My one and only and I, cannot say enough about this man, so I will try to keep it short. A writer, director, actor + philosopher, Herzog argues that one has not lived until they have been unsuccessfully shot at.

Check out his blog to discover the inner thoughts of a magnificent being. (Whether this site is legitimate or not, be sure to read it in your best werner herzog voice)

4. FILM: Mister Lonely 

Harmony Korine makes the kind of films that make my one and only and I, excited about making films. This one is SPECTACULAR. Not to mention that Mr Herzog's performance is as funny and delicious as a piece of turkish delight.

5. FOOD: Sweet potato. 

There are days where I truly wish that everything in the world was made out of sweet potato. Then I realise that there would be no 30Rock dvd's to watch before bed. 

As the weather gets colder, eat this.

6. OBJECT: blackboards. 

I love them. I have never been able to write on them neatly, but I'm told that I am driven by negative reinforcement. 

This track puts me in a hypnotic trance that I never want to snap out of.
