I like looking around on the internet for inspirations, especially when I am running out of ideas, or when I want to discover new artists, books, music and films. I find that the best way to jug out your crafty creative juices is by scouring inspirational blogs and websites. I remember having a Meme page at Yahoo that serves as my online storage room or cork board that contains some of "My Favorite Things", which is much too similar with Dianna Agron's Tumblr blog, also known as http://felldowntherabbithole.com, which she expanded later into a creative playground of sorts now known as "You Me and Charlie".
Woman With A Movie Camera / No Country For Young Women
Italian filmmaker Elena Rossini has become one of the people I look up to. Though I've never met her in person, her work ethics, her career drive and her overall passion for what she does is utterly inspiring. She has inspired me to continuously take pictures and work on my dream as a filmmaker. This blog, along with the many websites and arc-projects she has created remains as my constant source of inspiration.
I've been reading her blog for a long time now and I must say, yes, I'm a FAN! I enjoy her honest musings, her take on everything under the sun, may it be fashion, food, furniture or a random cute and cuddly pet. But her written and photographic accounts of her travels all over the world is the one thing that made me a faithful follower of her blog through the years.

Lost in Anime
The best portal to read weekly anime reviews. They got the best writers - dissecting every episodes, everything from its story, direction, animation and production that gives you a brand new outlook in appreciating the anime you are watching. I trust RandomC when it comes to reviews so I always make sure to drop by here and look for titles I would be screening before I spend my time downloading them, and I am telling you they are always spot on.
Movies...and there are no ample words to describe or emphasize my love for it. Through the years I'vebecome quite picky with the movies I choose to see, but at the same time voracious and always on the lookout for more, and I think it's because I frequently read Indiewire. Not that I'm blaming them since I have always been a Cinephile since my youth, however, this cyberspace place is a heaven of information. They cover movies, both mainstream and independent, and they even do recaps of TV series, mostly the good ones. But my favorite segment is definitely their compilation or to appropriately put that into words, "playlist". I love it whenever they do rankings of the best of this or worst of that, it makes my movie-watching life a lot easier. After all, there are so many of them and yet so little time.
