After Prosecco Friday we had a very chill Saturday day, you know one of the perfect ones where you sleep some, eat some, sleep a bit more and then look at funny pictures of lemurs.
This is one of my favourite pictures
How can they manage to look so angry all the time?
Look at the one in the back, he looks so angry he is about to explode.
Around six we had friends over for Spag bol and beer before we did head out to Dolmen hotel in Bugibba to watch people fight.
I had a really good time and while watching the contestants I realised that I want to start to train for something again, I want to have a goal to aim for.
I want to compete in something that require me training a little bit harder with a little bit more drive.
Have not yet figured it out yet but I’ll find something soon, I’m sure.
I really enjoyed the kickboxing but a few hours in I got really hungry and all I could wish for was a hot dog stand in the arena, but no hot dog stands magically turned up, the closest I got to food was all the chewing gum Cindy was feeding me with…
Here is us taking hungry selfies and dreaming about pizza.
As soon as I got in the door I cooked cheese sausages, ate them and fell asleep.
I think I’m turning into a hungry old lady…
In 2009 I was working with the talented Lukas Lukasik on his project The Three Metamorphoses, the first part was Blessed Virgin Mary.
We worked together before for many years and created amazing things, one of our first video collaboration was in Santa Barbara early 2006 when we got asked to make a music video for The Right Hand. From when we where asked we had 24 hours to deliver, we worked, shot and edited around the clock, when time was up we presented this video Can’t escape – The Right Hand.
We spent years cooperating and one day Luka approached me with the script for Blessed, Virgin Mary and I didn’t hesitate for a second.
There was a talented crew behind this project and I experienced for the first time being an actress, to have an assistant, her name was Molly and she made sure I was warm, fed and happy.
The whole movie is shot in film that later was digitised for editing purpose, no green screen was used, they spend so much time finding the perfect locations the scenery is astonishing.
You can see me standing on a windy, slippery cliff looking down at the ocean, freezing like a maniac, with Molly waiting with a robe and hot tea for me as soon as Luka and Charlie (the DOP) was happy with the shot.
I also managed to get burnt on my back when I was lying in the middle of candles and my head piece caught fire.
Here we are on a roof top in San Francisco at dawn, we all stayed up to get the perfect sunrise light
Coming up from the water
Between the shots I explored how it would being Ninja Mary
and Monkey Mary
The filmed toured in California after it was done, sometimes with a live orchestra, but it’s never been online, until now, five years after filming it, it is now up on YouTube.
I have not seen it in years and my heart was beating heavily while I was watching it.
Psychedelic art at its best!
This a new take on Virgin Mary, there is some involvement from Nietzsche, this is a 13 minutes short you just have to see.
Choices, part one, Blessed Virgin Mary
It’s pouring down rain at the moment, my mum went home today and as the sun lover as she is I’m positive she packed the sun in her suitcase.
I’m glad the weather was find yesterday though, would have sucked big time if the carnival was drenched and the floats would actually have to float.
The three of us went down to Valletta, one of us was a little more pink than the others.
We obviously started the carnival in the lift with a liftparty
As soon as we arrive in Valletta we were surrounded by colours and fabulous costumes
We walked around some and admired the floats
