  1. During the year 1968 five groundbreaking movies were in a competition for Best Picture. Although this is a very thick book I couldn’t put it down!25_kubrick_archives_fp_gb_3d_44804_1503121754_id_907654
  2. This stunning book is chalkful of pictures of the director movies and information on how the movies were made.1200
  3. John Water’s 2015 commencement speech to the graduating class of  Rhode Island’s  School of Design. He give some great advice on how to make trouble!Looking-For-Mister-Goodbar
  4. Based on  the brutal murder of Roseann Quinn. “Looking for Mr. Goodbar”s author Patricia Quinn was not planning to write this novel however a rejection from Esquire Magazine on this subject propel her to write it.purple
  5. One of my more recent reads from the frequently challenged Banned Book list. I can understand why this book was part of the list. However it is beautifully written and definitely worth reading . Alice Walker actually won the Pulitzer Prize for writing this novel in 1963

Man of the Moment..

Hello and welcome to this’s week: MAN OF THE MOMENT.

This week belongs to John Waters. He is one of my heroes. Director, writer, artist, and fellow Bibliophile. John Waters is not ashamed to show off his bad taste to the masses and makes it look cool in the process.

“As a child, I always wanted to sit in William Castle’s lap, not Santa’s!”- John Waters

“When they throw the water on the witch, she says, “Who would have thought a good little girl like you could destroy my beautiful wickedness”. That line inspired my life. I sometimes say it to myself before I go to sleep, like a prayer.” – John Waters discussing The Wizard of Oz
