Pride and Prejudice as a modern tale of music & love.

Elizabeth Bennet (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) is an aspiring songwriter. She spends most of her days writing songs, much to her sisters’ amusement. Jane (Lupita Nyong’o) is happy being a quiet accountant, but Lydia (Jessica Sula) dreams of stardom, of singing the songs her sister only wants to write. 

One day, the Bennet sisters are invited to an exhibition for aspiring musicians, attended by some of music’s elite. Most notably is Fitzwilliam Darcy (Oscar Isaac), the intense singer-songwriter who criticizes one of Elizabeth’s songs without realizing she’s behind him. Jane meets Bingley (Ruth Negga), Darcy’s beautiful and kind agent. The sisters also meet George Wickham (Scott Michael Foster), the infamous pop star.

Elizabeth finally finds a hit song when she writes the song “Proud” about the interaction with Darcy, which becomes a YouTube sensation when Lydia performs it for her vlog. As their lives become more intertwined, Darcy becomes suspicious of Jane’s affections for his agent. As Jane and Bingley fall apart, his interest in Elizabeth grows. He writes a song for Elizabeth called “Ardently”, which confesses his attraction for her at the same time as belittling her station as an amateur, her stardom-seeking sister, and his own reservations about her. 

Elizabeth is not amused.

The two continue to circle each other as Elizabeth is signed as a songwriter by his label, Pemberley, and they begin to work on writing songs together. Things are interrupted, however, when they discover that Wickham has been manipulating Lydia with promises of the spotlight.

5% Alcohol, 95% Historical Drama, a playlist by llvioloncello on Spotify
A playlist featuring Hans Zimmer, Martin Phipps, Dario Marianelli, and others

Hi everyone, here’s another playlist I made. The alcohol and percentages in the title are in reference to the fact that this turned out to be a rather effective playlist for doing my chemistry homework.

Hopefully it also helps you all cope with the Victoria hiatus.

Enjoy :)

Hello! I’m looking for some international friends as there’s something absolutely amazing in being in touch with people from all over the world. I’d love to talk about basically anything: your life, your dreams, ambitions and your everyday sorrows (I tend to complain quite a lot so we could do that together). I watch way too many TV shows and films so there’s no point in mentioning all of them but I’m mainly into period drama and fantasy. Same with literature. Just to give you some general idea about my preferences - you could find on my shelves, among others, Virginia Woolf, Jane Austen, Ursula Le Guin, Dan Simmons or The Brontë sisters. I also love music and photography.

I’m currently in uni studying Norwegian so if you speak/learn the language it’d be awesome but it’s not a must. I have two adorable dogs and a slightly annoying and chubby cat and my life without them would be painfully sad. I hate alcohol so the only thing we probably won’t be able to talk about are our driking stories. Actually, I’m not much of a party person and would rather stay at home or invite friends over to spend a quiet evening in.

Sadly, I don’t have much time for snail mail at the moment so I’d prefer to talk mainly by e-mail or other social media such as facebook or instagram at first but I am open to sending each other small packages or postcards every now and then.

Preferences: I suppose it’d be easier to talk to someone more or less around my age group or older. Your gender, sexuality or race make no difference to me. I’m just looking for someone willing to stay in touch long-term :)

Jane Austen died on this day 200 years ago. Learn more about Poet’s Corner, where she is buried in Westminster Abbey, in this beautifully done video with amazing background music.

(Published on Apr 26, 2017)

Ever wondered about the origins of Poets’ Corner in Westminster Abbey, where over 100 poets and writers are buried or commemorated? It all began in 1400 when Geoffrey Chaucer, the author of ‘The Canterbury Tales’ was buried there but not because he was a poet.

One of the best-known parts of Westminster Abbey, Poets’ Corner can be found in the South Transept. It was not originally designated as the burial place of writers, playwrights and poets; the first poet to be buried here, Geoffrey Chaucer, was laid to rest in Westminster Abbey because he had been Clerk of Works to the palace of Westminster, not because he had written the Canterbury Tales.

Over 150 years later, during the flowering of English literature in the sixteenth century, a more magnificent tomb was erected to Chaucer by Nicholas Brigham and in 1599 Edmund Spenser was laid to rest nearby. These two tombs began a tradition which developed over succeeding centuries.

Burial or commemoration in the Abbey did not always occur at or soon after the time of death. Lord Byron, for example, whose lifestyle caused a scandal although his poetry was much admired, died in 1824 but was finally given a memorial only in 1969. Even Shakespeare, buried at Stratford-upon-Avon in 1616, had to wait until 1740 before a monument, designed by William Kent, appeared in Poets’ Corner.

Other poets and writers, well known in their day, have now vanished into obscurity, with only their monuments to show that they were once famous.

Conversely, many whose writings are still appreciated today have never been memorialised in Poets’ Corner, although the reason may not always be clear.

So, I was in the car one day, rocking out to Swedish pop music, as one does, when I suddenly got this mental image of a bunch of Jane Austen’s mercenary ladies blasting “Money Money Money” out the roof of their open-top barouche.

So without further ado, I bring you: Izzy and The Gold Diggers.
