Yes yes, I said that I wanted to do more substantial blog posts and not just link videos on Youtube, but this one is really good! Okay? Also it combines two of the subjects that were most formative for me in my teens: cooking and Frida Kahlo.
One of my all-time favorite movies is Kamikaze Girls, or Shimotsuma Monogatari as it’s called in Japanese. It’s based on a novel by Novala Takemoto that I finally finished reading today and although I’m not at all an emotional person, there were many moments that got me all choked up.
