A Light in the Attic

"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
Of cabbages--and kings--
And why the sea is boiling hot--
And whether pigs have wings." - Lewis carroll

The Crystals - He’s a Rebel

This song was actually sung by Darlene Love and not by the Crystals. She thought it was her first single and Phil Spector gave it to the Crystals without telling her or changing the vocal track.

"Dogs never bite me. Just humans" - Marilyn Monroe

Maf was a little white French poodle who was given to MM in New York by Frank Sinatra. Sinatra had purchased the dog from Natalie Wood’s mother. As has been widely reported, Marilyn named the dog “Maf” because of Frank Sinatra’s alleged mafia connections. lnterestingly, to spite Arthur Miller, Marilyn used to let Maf sleep on an expensive white beaver coat that Miller had presented her. When Marilyn returned to live in Hollywood, she had Maf flown back to be with her. Following her death, Maf was inherited by Frank Sinatra’s secretary, Gloria Lovell.
