[b]01. Cathy Davey - Little Red

Эй, I, I wouldn't let him in
No I, I wouldn't, I wouldn't let him in
His eyes are close together, and he wears a toothy grin
Don't let him in
No, I wouldn't if I were Ты let him in

You're all the time believing the very best in all
But the devil was an angel, till he took a little fall

02. Regina Spektor - Apres Moi

I must go on standing
Ты can't break that which isn't yours
I, oh, must go on standing
I'm not my own, it's not my choice

Be afraid of the lame
They'll inherit your legs
Be afraid of the old
They'll inherit your souls
Be afraid of the cold
They'll inherit your blood
Apres moi, le deluge
After me comes the flood

03. Tori Amos - Crucify

[i]Every finger in the room

Born in kansas
On an ordinary plain
Ran to new york
But ran away from fame
Only seventeen
When all your dreams came true
But all Ты wanted
Was someone to undress you

And all the stars Ты kissed
Could never ease the pain
Still the grace remains
And though the face has changed
You’re still the same

And it’s a long long way
From where Ты want to be
And it’s a long long way
But you’re too blind to see

Frame of silence
Of an innocence divine
Is a dangerous creation
When Ты fail the test of time

And all the photographs
Of ghosts of long ago
Still they hurt Ты so
Won’t let Ты go
And Ты still don’t know

And it’s a long long way
From where Ты want to be
An it’s a long long way
But you’re too blind to see

When Ты look around yourself now
Do Ты recognize the girl

I сказал(-а) that Card had fallen in Любовь with the screen Louise Brooks in 1928. Twenty years later he established a very complex relationship with the real one. She was at the time living in Manhattan, a bloated drunk who трещина, сплит her time between her постель, кровати and a barstool. He got her interested in living, started her writing, and was the person primarily responsible for the international recognition she enjoyed in her later years. He brought her to Rochester and helped her establish a new life. They were for a time very close, and then they fought bitterly.

We all loved Pandora’s Box, in which she’s stunningly beautiful and at the end is murdered by Jack the Ripper. We saw it at Box 5, we showed it in two или three different film series here in Buffalo, we showed it to Друзья at our house. One time when we watched it Card said, in a matter of fact way, “You’ll be interested in this, Bruce, because you’re a criminologist: When Louise and I were really hating each other I devised the perfect murder. It was really perfect.” I asked him what he’d come up with. “She...

“I have a gift for enraging people, but if I ever bore you, it’ll be with a knife”

--------------------------------------------------

“I have been taking stock of my 50 years since leaving Wichita in 1922 at the age of 15 to become a dancer with Ruth St. Denis and Ted Shawn. How I have existed fills me with horror. For I have failed in everything -- spelling, arithmetic, riding, tennis, golf; dancing, singing, acting; wife, mistress, whore, friend. Even cooking. And I do not excuse myself with the usual escape of “not trying”. I tried with all my heart.

--------------------------------------------------

“For two extraordinary years I have been working on it - learning to write - but mostly learning to tell the truth. At first it is quite impossible. Ты make yourself better than anybody, and when Ты finally come to see Ты are “like” everybody - that is the bitterest blow of all to the ego. But in the end it is only the truth, no matter how ugly или shameful, that is right, that fits together, that makes real people, and strangely enough - beauty…”

    ‘If I ever bore you, it’ll be with a knife’.

These words were uttered by Louise Brooks. And they‘re true. If Ты dig deep enough into her life, you’re likely to be fascinated by the elusive and sultry beauty who became the embodiment of 1920’s Hollywood. With her uniquely exotic good looks and her banged and bobbed hair style, Louise Brooks captivated moviegoers everywhere, yet critics and film executives alike were unimpressed with her Актёрское искусство abilities. As the years went by, however, Brooks has become a cult Иконка whose work is seen as a remarkable accomplishment in cinema history.

    Mary Louise Brooks was born on November 14, 1906 in Cherryvale, Kansas to Leonard and Myra Brooks, the секунда of four children. When Louise was four years old she starred in a church benefit production of Tom Thumb’s Wedding, portraying the bride. Her mother was impressed by the way her daughter ‘manipulated her душ bouquet and bridal veil with all the ease and assurance of a grown­up bride’.
