Invisible things by Noëlle Maline

With the flicker of a bird .. I prefer distractions and being interrupted . These days , I am a luggage organizer , book filer and background diorama painter .. I look at the night sky and watch old films .. Collect shadows and uncertainties .. I make art with fragments and broken images .. Paper , things and sounds .


The stars are out tonight with Ramon

My dear friend, Ramon, who I have been pals with since we were on the playground in 4th grade..and who also is an amazing and hard working hair artist {also my hair artist :) }, worked with this and so I just have to share!... 

Ramon wrote ~ 'I have been a huge Bowie fan since I was a kid, so I apologize for this, but I am over the moon!!! Finally this comes out! Thanks always to super talented Floria and Pamela Neal for having me!!

Hair Colorist to Tilda Swinton and Yves Berlin.

my hair that Ramon does.. we not only know each other so well..
He creates the most perfect color and cut 
every time.. and i get several compliments every day! }

Thank you Ramon..
My Friend.


sick day = space out holiday

today i am sick.. i can't do much. i can barely think.
it's nice we have computers these days. we can work
on things and write to people with out having to move much.
i was told once.. that when you are sick, 
it is your body taking a vacation. 
i get to space out a lot.

i get to listen to lali puna on my head phones
and make this blog entry.

when i was a kid.. our family car looked
just like this one. ours was orange and wood though.
most of my station wagon time was sitting in the 
very back, with my walkman on, staring out at the road...

when i stare into space..
i think about pup and taco's crinkle fries and a mr. pibb with
the pellet ice. { they other day..tommi brought up how carl's jr. fries 
were the best and 
stephanie was talking about the small pellet ice and how
soda tastes best in it... i agree. }

i should try to work on some collages,
frame some prints
 and go through my closet
to get rid of some things i don't wear..

happy valentines day to...

to James...

 to Fugu..

to all my cats...


you never do what you oughta

I was just watching a strange interview 
with Joan Crawford from 1970 on 
The David Frost Show..
I just find her strange I guess
because of the stories my mom told me about her
and all the other stories that came up about her home life..
She always sort of gave me the chills.
This was on the side bar while I was watching it and I kept
 glancing over at it and So I thought it might have something to do
with each other.. 
Perhaps not.
I do love David Bowie's Sorrow though..

Here is the Joan Crawford segment.


thoughts for the day..

A few thoughts for the day by Stephen Fry...

1. I think we have all experienced passion 
that is not in any sense reasonable.

2. Generally, we admire the thing we are not.

3. I like to think of myself at home in the armchair, writing, smoking 
and occasionally wandering down the shop.

{ Hugh Laurie playing chess with Stephen Fry }

{ Stephen Fry directed one of my favorite films,
Bright Young Things which was adapted
by him from Evelyn Waugh's
Vile Bodies... He also made the award
winning documentary,
Stephen Fry : 
The Secret life of 
the Manic Depressive. }
