Recently I’ve had so much pleasures with all the music discoveries, especially on DouBan, because it tracks what books I’ve read, music I’ve listened to, and movies I’ve watched; then based on the records, it suggests new things for me to enjoy. I get ambitious when I see the statistics go up. Yesterday there’s only 20 albums and 50 movie’s I’ve heard and seen, today, after adding another 10, it’s 30 albums and 60 movies!!! I just want to see that number go up! To do that, I need to listen to more music and watch more movies, and collect all that I’ve done and report it! I get so crazy that these past few days, whenever I lie down trying to fall asleep, I can’t because I envision myself sitting in front of the computer and doing stuff on DouBan…
How cute are the covers! The books are actually cuter! She tells her story as a graphic novel, her drawings are unique and her encounters are special. I cannot wait to see the movie (an animated feature) and listen to the soundtrack! Here are samples of her drawings from the books:
They are so much different from Japanese Girl Comics, but I love them because they are simple and to the point. I had wanted to buy the Chinese edition of the books, but I liked how the English translation sounds sarcastic. I’m obssessed to a point that I picture myself being the main character of the story, only my surroundings were all Chinese instead of Iranian~~
Heh heh, I’m having so much fun with her works. And Marjane herself is quite beautiful too:
I just adore her!
This is not the best yet… The best is that I just discovered this Indie girl group based in NY, called “The Pierces”, their album Thirteen Tales of Love and Revenge is smashingly good!
I just can’t believe how lucky I have been to find out so many cute things all at once lately! More importantly, their music (the sisters wrote or co-wrote all songs) is real different and outstanding. For some reason, I found pairing the music of this album with reading Persepolis a perfect match! Maybe because both works have the dark and rebellious feeling. I just can’t get enough of double girl singers!
