Wet n Wild Hollywood Walk of Fame and Orly White Tips with Party Monster by James St. James (originally published as Disco Bloodbath: A Fabulous But True Tale of Murder in Clubland)
“Funny, that no matter where you are in the world, there’s always someone eager to help you destroy yourself.” 


*I know we all have feelings about the “movie cover” but this one is kinda sick right?

Revlon Graceful and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Blackout with The Fixer by Bernard Malamud 
From The Paris Review interview with Bernard Malamud:

INTERVIEWER
Humanity? Are you suggesting art is moral?
MALAMUD
It tends toward morality. It values life. Even when it doesn’t, it tends to. My former colleague, Stanley Edgar Hyman, used to say that even the act of creating a form is a moral act. That leaves out something, but I understand and like what he was driving at. It’s close to Frost’s definition of a poem as “a momentary stay against confusion.” Morality begins with an awareness of the sanctity of one’s life, hence the lives of others—even Hitler’s, to begin with—the sheer privilege of being, in this miraculous cosmos, and trying to figure out why. Art, in essence, celebrates life and gives us our measure.
INTERVIEWER
It changes the world?
MALAMUD
It changes me. It affirms me.

nudewave:

Tumblr to Follow: Pages & Polish is a damn delight, combining the things I love most, nail polish and books, to appeal to that hair stylist with a BA in comparative literature that I am. The book choices/excerpts are fantastic and the nail colors are not only complementary to the reading material but expertly designed and applied. Giddy over this.

So flattered. Anaïs is too kind (as well as too smart, too beautiful, and too talented).

China Glaze Deviantly Daring, China Glaze Rare and Radiant, and Wet n Wild 413 with Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin

“Speak up,’ says Myrna who has a fuzzy white caterpillar of a moustache. ‘My hearing’s not so good.’ ‘I WAS SHOT IN THE HEAD.’ Liz turns to Thandi. ‘I thought you said you didn’t remember how you got the hole in your head.’ Thandi apologizes. ‘I just remembered.’ ‘Shot in the head!’ Florence-scratchy-voice says. ‘Oy, that’s rough.’ ‘Aw, it’s nothing special. Happens pretty regularly where I’m from,’ Thandi says. ‘WHAT?’ asks Myrna with the moustache. ‘Say it toward my left ear, that’s the good one.’ ‘I SAID, “IT’S NOTHING SPECIAL,”’ Thandi yells”

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Gilty Pleasure and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Black Out with Cash: The Autobiography by Johnny Cash

Hey, I’m not the smartest guy in the world, but I’m certainly not the dumbest. I mean, I’ve read books like “The Unbearable Lightness of Being” and “Love in the Time of Cholera”, and I think I’ve understood them. They’re about girls, right? Just kidding. But I have to say my all-time favorite book is Johnny Cash’s autobiography “Cash” by Johnny Cash.
