Love this commercial… I could totally sit through this a couple of times if I saw it on TV. lol

I like the design of the watch a lot better than the Apple Watch, which seems kinda chunky and calls too much attention. But still shrugged at the fact that you need a smartphone to set it up.

I ran into this clip of what seems a rehearsal of Yevgeny Mironov and Chulpan Khamatova dancing for the sequences of The Puppet Syndrome. If you do get a chance, do check it out.

Flawless Carina Lau features on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar China’s Dec’15 edition, commemorating her 50th birthday and reminding us mortals how to do it.

Our new fave photographer Sun Jun in charge.

I’m not a very big fan of Ayumi Hamasaki, but I remember when I saw this video (and her this song) for the very first time, it held a lot of promise. Sadly, it didn’t. At least from what I was able to listen to~

And all of a sudden~ Elena Khazanova’s The Puppet Syndrome (Синдром Петрушки) was released. A couple of months ago when the trailer was released, I didn’t even have a solid release date, but alas~

They’ve also just released the trailer for Aleksandr Proshkin’s Garden of Eden (Райские Кущи), but while they’re promoting The Puppet Syndrome, Khamatova gave an interview for Gazeta.ru about the film, women on Russian film, as well as being a film actress… and talked briefly about playing a teenage boy in Aleksei German Jr.’s Under Electric Clouds.

Apparently, they really did build a Chulpan Khamatova real-life-sized doll, full-body plaster cast, straws in her nostrils and the whole thing.

I can’t wait to watch that~~~

On Pixar’s Inside Out Russian movie pitch~ “Let’s make this big beautiful expensive animated film… about emotions in the mind of a little girl!- This is ridiculous.” Even in the European/Hollywood environment, it seems like a crazy idea.

Interesting bits about that line alone~ the Russian title of Inside Out, Головоломки (Holovolomky) — means “game puzzle.” and an animated film is called a мультфильм (mul’tfil’m).

And if she had been given the chance to play Furiosa (or Milla Jovovich’s role in Resident Evil), she bluntly said no. LOL

You can read the whole interview on the Gazeta.ru website.
