I love Vignettes

Mariah’s Vignettes

I never heard about vignettes until yesterday but I love them. Apparently Mariah is shooting vignettes for her upcoming Adventures of Mimi tour and Spike Lee is directing. For me, this is a dream come true. One of my favourite directors and MC. The vignettes will make fun of Mariah:

Mariah: It’s kinda like a play on the diva image.
Spike: You know, about her tight dresses, brests hanging out, she had a nervous breakdown, all that stuff.
Mariah: Yes, Jack (her dog) is part of the vignettes.

Weeds

Mommy’s husband dies of a heart attack but she has to feed the kids and wants to keep the standard of living. She starts selling weed in the Californian suburbs.

That’s the set up for the tv series Weeds, of which I watched the first season on DVD recently. It has some cliches that I don’t want to argue about, still I love the humor and the stiffness with which the characters interact.
From the first episode on, I thought that Nancy (the mommy) was going to hook up with Conrad but to no avail.

Season one had its unexpected highlight when Conrad (Romany Malco, US born son of a West Indian family) stands topless in the kitchen. For no other reason than his immense level of handsomeness.

Ciara – Get Up

It sounds like 1, 2 Step and the video reminds me of Janet’s Rhythm Nation era with a bit of pumping skyscraper lights a la Kylie blended in. The clip is kind of long winded but I’m into it anyway. And I love how Cüara (that’s how I like to pronounce her in German) counts in Japanese during the break. Ichi, ni, san.

1, 2 step, get up
