I listen to Lit!Pop!Bang! every month on a run. I call it the “School of Lit!Pop!Bang!” because Anthony and Cece get to the heart of the work of each guest, and who they are as a person. It was so wonderful to listen to Tyler talk about their project with Ink Press Productions, naming, Cool Judy, Pose, and more inkpressproductions.com.

The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo by Amy Schumer
Rate this book
Clear rating
I did not expect to enjoy this book. I prefer a different type of humor than Amy Schumer's, but as she points out early in the book, that is not who she is. The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo was inspiring and empowering, and of course, funny.

John Steinbeck
“With all our horrors and faults, somewhere in us there is a shining.”
John Steinbeck

John Irving
“Your memory is a monster; you forget—it doesn't. It simply files things away. It keeps things for you, or hides things from you—and summons them to your recall with will of its own. You think you have a memory; but it has you!”
John Irving, A Prayer for Owen Meany

Aldous Huxley
“Words can be like X-rays if you use them properly -- they’ll go through anything. You read and you’re pierced.”
Aldous Huxley, Brave New World

Woody Allen
“All men fear death. It’s a natural fear that consumes us all. We fear death because we feel that we haven’t loved well enough or loved at all, which ultimately are one and the same. However, when you make love with a truly great woman, one that deserves the utmost respect in this world and one that makes you feel truly powerful, that fear of death completely disappears. Because when you are sharing your body and heart with a great woman the world fades away. You two are the only ones in the entire universe. You conquer what most lesser men have never conquered before, you have conquered a great woman’s heart, the most vulnerable thing she can offer to another. Death no longer lingers in the mind. Fear no longer clouds your heart. Only passion for living, and for loving, become your sole reality. This is no easy task for it takes insurmountable courage. But remember this, for that moment when you are making love with a woman of true greatness you will feel immortal.
I believe that love that is true and real creates a respite from death. All cowardice comes from not loving or not loving well, which is the same thing. And when the man who is brave and true looks death squarely in the face like some rhino hunters I know or Belmonte, who is truly brave, it is because they love with sufficient passion to push death out of their minds. Until it returns, as it does to all men. And then you must make really good love again. Think about it.”
Woody Allen

Junot Díaz
“Motherfuckers will read a book that’s one third Elvish, but put two sentences in Spanish and they [white people] think we’re taking over.”
Junot Díaz
