The other Boleyn girl currently stares at me everyday I leave the house, and I sure can’t say that her charm is lost on me. It’s this weeks movie poster, and before you ask, no, I do not have a historicals only calendar pinned on my wall, I just feel drawn to them. There’s a passion and explosive erotic to this picture, the likes of which often springs at us from covers in the romance section (not that a manly man like me would ever venture there). In my humble opinion it’s a accomplished, erotic piece of movie art. There’s actually a alternate design for The other Boleyn girl, that comes in a simpler, more in you face style, but I’ll spare you that. Instead I’ll give promotionals for the TV-series The Tudors. Subtle is different, but damn, that lady is a looker (and I guess Rhys Meyers too).
"When someone doesn't show up, the people who wait sometimes tell stories about what might have happened and come to half believe the desertion, the abduction, the accident. Worry is a way to pretend that you have knowledge or control over what you don't--and it surprises me, even in myself, how much we prefer ugly scenarios to the pure unknown. Perhaps fantasy is what you fill up maps with rather than saying that they too contain the unknown."— Rebecca Solnit
