LONG POST ALERT: I’ll admit, over the last couple of years I’ve really lost my Instagram mojo. I felt like the community side of it had really fallen away and, in terms of my own photography, I’ve been massively lacking in inspiration. However, over the past few weeks I’ve stumbled into the Bookstagram world - watching from the wings - and am suddenly feeling enthused again. I’ve loved seeing beautiful books on beautiful bookshelves AND there is a really strong community vibe - the kind of fun space that got my hooked on Instagram in the first place. So, as of today, I’m pressing F5 and refreshing my feed to be a place for books 📚
A bit about me - I’m Dave, I live in the Midlands in the UK and Stephen King is my favourite author (bet you never guessed that from my photo, hey?). My collection of King is almost entirely sourced from charity or secondhand shops and I’m planning to embark on a chronological re-read soon. I’m also in a shouty hardcore/punk/metal twopiece (we even have a song about Sai King) and I also run the account @kenilwoof where I’m trying to photograph all of the dogs in my hometown of Kenilworth.
Anyway, just wanted to say a big HELLO to the bookstagram community. And please, given my noob status, feel free to suggest people and hashtags to follow or just any tips in general - looking forward to getting to know you all! 🙌
The world's a hard place, Danny. It don't care. It don't hate you and me, but it don't love us, either. Terrible things happen in the world, and they're things no one can explain. Good people die in bad, painful ways and leave the folks that love them all alone. Sometimes it seems like it's only the bad people who stay healthy and prosper. The world don't love you, but your momma does and so do I. Jack in life 2
Sometimes life throws creative challenges at us in the most unexpected ways. When Mel & Morgan from @lustreweddings came to me on behalf of one of their clients with this idea I was immediately on board with it. The couple were mega movie buffs and wanted to bring their seating chart to life incorporating some of their favourite films. When the time came to put the pen to the paper (or in this case the wood) I struggled to find a way to balance the piece without making it seem too over the top, while still incorporating their requests for bold colours and staying true to the movie titles and logos. In the end, after a lot of toying around, it came together better than expected and was a huge hit for the bride & groom and their guests. Captured beautiful by @willowandwolfweddings .
Don’t ever be afraid to make bold personal statements with your wedding decor! Your guests want to feel your love story and personality shine on your big day, and custom pieces like this are the best way to achieve that! .

The first time I saw #theshining i hated it. Mostly because I thought #shellyduvall performance was annoying and bad. However after many many repeat viewings it grew on me and just the location and atmosphere and overall look and feel and performances make for one of the creepiest and influential horror flicks ever. There is a reason it is hailed as a masterpiece. Not my favorite #kubrick film, but I watch it at least 3-4 times a year and never get tired of it. In fact when I get home tonight I might give it a watch. #paulthomasanderson once said this is one of two movies that he can't turn off once he starts watching.
[["Overlook un sitio de bellos paisajes tan solemne y acojedor era digno de nombrarse su curioso resplandor
El sombrio hotel guardaba mil historias de terror
Mas no habrian de acabarse las leyendas ni su horror
Pues aqui se avecinaba un macabro escritor
De locuras y aislamientos recobrarian del pasado los viejos recuerdos
Y acabarian cogenlados los accesos de mal genio"]]
Danny lo había visto en el espejo
Y aunque tan solo tenia 5 años y sin saber leer entendio que era un mensaje de horror//
Todo comienza con los Torrance al verse obligados a pasar una temporada de invierno en el Overlook
En donde Jack Torrance consigue el puesto de encargado en el hotel cuyo llamativo lujo y siniestro se convierte en escenario de angustiante aislamiento y desolacion donde en cualquier instante el recuerdo de la muerte desata el terror locura y desesperacion, y detalles que no por menor la indeseable aparicion de espectros ante la eceptica visión
Doc(como llamaban a veces a Danny) el pequeño hijo de Jack y Wendy posee un peculiar don ya antes reconocido como El Resplandor
//Conclusion me traumo jajaja la verdad nunca habia leido algo que me causara tanto terror y me tarde en leerlo por eso mismo bueno hay que hacer caso.. King de otra manera no seria El maestro del terror y aunque no tengo con que compararala (mentira si.. con it pero todavia no la termine es muy largo y le rajo al miedo pero bueno este me re engache y lo avance rapido por que me lo prestaron igual me gusta mas IT pero eso no quita que..) creo que es impresionante me encanto ya me habia visto la peli con Jack Nicholson(y volvi a ver) y es cierto que su increíble actuación mas toda la producción en la adaptación no hace tan importante que nose profundize la personalidad de los personajes"//
En fin si no quieren ponerse los pelos de punta recuerden que tanto el libro o la peli no sea a oscuras😅
Les mando amor besos y /terror 😄😙🙊
Pd:👏 Para mi pequeño primito❤en la foto(y..ay nose a mi me dio un poquitito de miedo mi propia foto jajaj...)
Ahh y otra cosa que recordar
No entren por nada del mundo a la habitación 237
Shelley Duvall was driven to the bone during the filming of “The Shining”(1980) in attempting to perfect Kubrick’s vision of the weak and broken Stephen King character. Duvall was forced to cry and be depressed for 12 hours a day to get into character which took a toll on her mental health, leading her to suffer from nervous exhaustion such as physical illness and even hair loss. Kubrick even told the set to “not sympathize with Shelley” while putting intense pressure on her daily. She has not been the same since the film, but what a performance 🤜 #shelleyduvall#theshining#redrum#overlookhotel#stanleykubrick#jacknicholson#wendytorrence#cultfilms#horrorfanatic
Post 8: “Taiko Drumming” - scene from ‘Isle of Dogs’ (2018, Wes Anderson). This film was screened yesterday in an outdoor theatre event @ Notre-Dame de Grace park, Montréal. Since I’m watching films based on IMDb’s ‘Top 200’ list, I never got around to watching any of Wes Anderson’s work. ‘Isle of Dogs’ is the first Wes Anderson film I’ve watched and it did not disappoint. First of all, the cinematography is breathtaking. The landscapes, particularly Trash Island and Megasaki are so intricately presented and could arguably be one of the best landscapes I’ve seen in film. Every single shot in this film is glorious, the choice of colour variances, character design, and lighting are perfect and couldn’t have been done in any other way. Once again, Anderson has an outstanding selection of A-list actors including Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, and Jeff Goldblum. Each of them give their own way of life and humour to their canine counterparts. The storyline is different (which is good - it’s not another man’s best friend spoof that we’re all tired of seeing), and Alexandre Desplat strikes again with another powerful score. My only concern would be Anderson’s choice of drama. There are touching moments in this film which I think should hava lasted longer; however, these moments quickly transition to humour or a scene change. Despite that, I think Isle of Dogs is the best animated film this year and should definitely be first choice for animated feature in the Oscars. (8.5/10)
