Reminiscing for the Nostalgic

"The world is full of people whose notion of a satisfactory future is, in fact, a return to the idealized past." - Robertson Davies, A Voice from the Attic

I'm Kelly; lover of the 1940s, Gene Kelly, and Jesus. This blog is devoted to early 20th Century history, period dramas, Doctor Who, and my sexy French lover, Jean Dujardin.

Henri, what happened to you? You were so sweet and carefree. I miss the old you.

Gene Kelly - Jean Dujardin

Don’t you think they look alike?

My favorite boys! I agree that they look somewhat alike. It was Jean’s similarities to Gene that captured my attention in 2011. It certainly helped that part of the George Valentin character was modeled after Gene.

Look at the eyebrows go!

Ohhh, why did they choose this background photo? Snow? Ice? Nothing ahead but more snow and ice for miles to come? It could be an adventure, but probably not one you’d want.

Too many young women I think are harder on themselves than circumstances warrant. They are too often selling themselves short. They too often take criticism personally instead of seriously. You should take criticism seriously because you might learn something, but you can’t let it crush you. You have to be resilient enough to keep moving forward, whatever the personal setbacks and even insults that come your way might be. That takes a sense of humor about yourself and others. Believe me, this is hard-won advice I’m putting forth. It’s not like you wake up and understand this. It’s a process.

I couldn’t agree more:

"It is both delusional & stupid to think that clothes dont really matter and we should all wear whatever we want. Most people don’t take clothes seriously enough, but whether we should or not, clothes do Talk to us and we make decisions based on peoples appearances”.
 - G. BRUCE BOYER -


Exactly. People deserve respect no matter what they wear, but, whether we like it or not, our choice in clothing always sends a message.

Dujardin du Jour

There are worse things than being alone but it often takes decades to realize this and most often when you do it’s too late and there’s nothing worse than too late.

Charles Bukowski (via millionmovieproject)

I’m glad I realized this early on. I don’t like being alone (at least not all the time), but I far prefer it to the thought of being stuck in a relationship with a man I don’t like. I do have pretty particular standards, so it doesn’t take much for me to see that I really don’t want what is demonstrated in so many relationships around me.
