BID, MY LATEST TWITTER FOLLOWER...... BUT NOT A DRINKER IN THE TWITTERDILLY ARMS.... THERE IS A DIFFERENCE, A BIG DIFFERENCE
All remains quiet on the Moz front. The only thing of any interest for me to write about today, is Astraea's visit to the Twitterdilly Arms in the early hours of this morning. Astraea posted pictures, played T.Rex on the jukebox and conversed with Harrison about art; a conversation which included the thought provoking title of today's blog :

I am guessing that Astraea has been watching a few Jean-Luc Godard films. As I had a free morning, this morning, I decided to read up on the work of Jean-Luc Godard. I had no idea that he was A) Still alive or B) Once married to Anna Karina..... but then again, why would I know, I know nothing! I have also been looking at photos as I read:
GODARD, KARINA AND BELMONDO

KARINA AND GODARD AGAIN
It would appear that the reason Karina left Godard, was because of his devotion to his art. They divorced in 1965, the year that Pierrot Le Fou was made.
Astraea has pointed out that, "life is my art", but if somebody like Godard's life is their art, then how can they possibly be expected to have the distraction of another person FULL TIME in their life? The answer is, they can't, it's impossible. Artists such as Godard and Morrissey would surely end up NOT living what they ARE if they had the distraction of a partner?
The only way it could ever possibly work for an artist to have a full time partner, is for the partner to want nothing! According to Anna Karina's bio, she spent her childhood "terribly wanting to be loved", so falling in love with an artist was NOT a good idea. Karina has since had four more husbands, so I guess her childhood search continued right through adulthood. She is now 73. Has she found love yet? I cannot seem to find reference as to what she is currently up to, or if she is married.

Rather interestingly, Godard had Brigitte Bardot wear a wig for some of the scenes in in the film Contempt, which made her look distinctly like Anna:

And what of Jean-Luc Godard? I have read that he now lives reclusively in Switzerland. He is 83. "Through LIFE to art,.... she said."
I wonder if Morrissey has ever met Godard? And WHO are the he and she that Astraea wrote of? I seem to spend my life asking questions, but rarely finding answers.
And finally, Kristeen Young has tweeted that her new album has arrived in stock. Despite my dilemma of last week (was it last week, it all blurs), I finally decided to order the cd, and NOT the vinyl..... there was no 'Kylie option'!....... and so I now eagerly await it's arrival. I have been playing the song Pearl of a Girl on repeat, and I LOVE it.
And finally finally, "Life is a pigsty,.... he said", and yesterday I visited LIFE.... new life:
