Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien

I saw La Môme on Saturday and now I can’t stop thinking about Édith Piaf. La Vie En Rose is one of my favourite songs, after all. I really have a fascination with these messed up artistes. (Frida Kahlo, Van Gogh, Gustav Klimt, Jackson Pollock..) Anyhow, I didn’t like the disjointed storytelling, but Marion Cotillard was amazing. If I were to go to Père Lachaise, I’d visit Piaf’s grave and not the tourist favourite, Jim Morrison’s.

In my opinion, the best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what have you, the right person will still think the sun shines out your ass. That’s the kind of person that’s worth sticking with.
