Joan Clarke, the cryptanalyst war-heroine, and the women of Bletchley Park (you never heard of)
Joan Clarke Murray codebreaker at Bletchley Park during World War II, became deputy head of Hut 8 in 1944. Code breaking was almost exclusively done by men during the war. Clarke was paid less than the men and felt that she was prevented from progressing further because of her gender. She was a English cryptanalyst and numismatist ~
Stephanie Gonot‘s takes the classical still life and replaces fruit, flowers, and skulls with fanta, lunch meat, and ice cream. The results are clean and funny and a totally great time. Right now she is working on a bi-weekly column called “Food Mood” for the Italian magazine Red Milk where she takes fashion photographs as inspiration for her photographs of food. It also is a joy.
Singin' in the Rain. I love this film. I've only seen it a couple of times, but it's just wonderful! Perhaps I'll add it to my collection as I don't actually own it - this is a great excuse to buy myself some DVDs! Apparently Gene Kelly had a really high temperature/fever when he did the famous "Singin' in the Rain" scene, but he powered through! Crazy!
