Last night, Rubellite ... at Rue de Fleurus. The baby and the praying mantis entertained me while I dressed them in great things. They were particularly well-paired in their Alexi Freeman* Ziggy scarves.

Tonight there will be an exhibition opening at the newly renovated (and not quite finished!) venue, from 6 to 9pm at 153 Gertrude Street Fitzroy.

*Speaking of whom ... last week for Michi: Ida Graham

Too much blue.

Last week at Michi: something for every Betty ...
... but the pictured pair are a more vivid red in RL.

Last week for Michi: Maria Braun

Cinémathèque recently played a round of Fassbinder films. I think I saw five of them, and felt quite differently about each, which would be more surprising if RWF had not been so incredibly prolific.

I loved the Marriage of Maria Braun, and was quite exhilarated by it, but my favourite was probably, In a Year With 13 Moons, which is strange and difficult and mesmerising - so much so that when we left the cinema I could barely say whether I thought it was good or bad, and it was only the next day that my mind woke up and said, wow.

I highly recommend both but warn that the latter contains very graphic scenes from inside a slaughter house.
