I have lived on stairs haven’t I? I don’t know it always happened. Stairs are very, very dramatic. I’ve killed men on stairs, fallen down on stairs. I don’t know it’s a strange thing. In Madame Sin there is a gorgeous staircase and I said to the director ‘You’re of course going to have me come down those stairs.’ He said. ’ I never thought of it.’
Fashion designer Oscar de la Renta died Monday at the age of 82. As Washington Post fashion critic Robin Givhan tells NPR’s Steve Inskeep, the designer understood something very fundamental about women, no matter their age or background>
"They want to look pretty," Givhan says. "And his clothes were not these sort of experimental garments where, you know, sleeves or armholes were optional. And he wasn’t sort of this guy who made fashion all about him. You could really tell that the work was there to make women look and feel their best."

Pete Best released an album in 1965 called “Best of the Beatles” that contained no Beatles music but fooled so many people into buying it that it was investigated for consumer fraud. The case was dropped because no fraud had been committed, he was Best, of the Beatles.

Take Me To Church | HozierMy church offers no absolutes
She tells me “worship in the bedroom”
The only heaven I’ll be sent to
Is when I’m alone with you—
I was born sick
But I love it
Command me to be well
Amen. Amen. Amen.
Take me to church,
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good god, let me give you my life
