90 seconds of luxury

It’s really a luxurious thing, not the products that the LVMH ad promotes but one can enjoy 90 seconds of good music (by Gustavo Santaolalla) and wonderfully made video in the midst of lousy and noisy TV shows. The beautiful message from the first ever TV ad of Louis Vuitton

What is a journey ?
A journey is not a trip.
It’s not a vacation.
It’s a process, a discovery.
It’s a process of self-discovery.
A journey brings us face to face with ourselves.
A journey shows us not only the world, but how we fit in it.
Does the person create the journey, or does the journey creat the person ?
The journey is life itself.
Where will life take you ?

Movie and songs of the week

It’s hard to resist another run of the Notting Hill in cable TV. I have watched it countless time because of two things – the travel book store (you know, it’s my dream) and the wicked soundtrack. There are two songs in the movie I like very much – Ain’t no sunshine and She … Somehow in the movie there are two versions of Ain’t no sunshine – one by Lighthouse Family and the other one by the original singer – Bill Withers. Here is the amazing multi-seasons one shot with Ain’t no sunshine …

And here is the trailer of the movie with She by Elvis Costello:

As usual, I can’t help to search around and you will find the videos from Bill Withers, Lighthouse family and the original singer of She – Charles Aznavour 30 years ago. Enjoy !!
