My name is Darcy.
les choses que j'aime?
I love history like it's going out of style - which it is actually not. I love traveling and learning about different cultures and their languages. I love whimsical things and I also love interior decorating, at least for my own purposes. I enjoy cooking as well, though I'm not very good at it.
I love foreign language films; particularly French and German ones. I also tend to like the "oldies" - like "Jean de Florette", "Singing in the Rain", "La Cage Aux Folles", "Cabinet of Dr. Caligari", "Carmen Jones" or "Aus einem deutschen Leben".
I don't really have a particular genre that I like when it comes to books. Lately I've been reading more history-oriented books, but I enjoy Brit chick lit/teen fantasy/Agatha Christie/Mythology/Nancy Drew just as much as the next person. What is currently piled on my bedside table in a disorderly READ ME stack:
The Hush Sound, The Barenaked Ladies, Coldplay, Black Eyed Peas, The Shins, The Kooks, Eisley, The Killers, Franz Ferdinand, Paramore, The Corrs, St. Vincent, Yelle, A Fine Frenzy, Wintersleep, Rogue Traders, Thandiswa, Guns N' Roses, Tegan & Sara, OK Go, Yves Klein Blue, Phoenix, Wir sind Helden, Regina Spektor, Vienna Tang, Lara, Rilo Kiley, Bonjour Brumaire, and The New Pornographers are all on my Recently Played list.
