The Ultimate Guide To Rock ‘N’ Roll

Former Frisky columnist Judy McGuire has exchanged her first love (dispensing hilarious dating advice) for her second (rock ‘n’ roll) with her new book, The Official Book of Sex, Drugs, and Rock ‘n’ Roll Lists. But as the title promises, there’s plenty of salaciousness to go around. McGuire got plenty of music’s greatest — and greatest fans — to dish the dirt; Ozzy Osbourne dishes health tips, Coco (Ice-T’s wife) shares her advice for keeping your rapper happy, and Willie Nelson riffs on his area of expertise (smoking pot, of course). You’ll read it from cover to cover and then leave it somewhere easily accessible, as it’s always good for a laugh or inciting conversation. I mean, when don’t you need Snoop Dogg’s deepest thoughts on sex and relationships? [$16.20, Amazon]

Ray Bradbury Dead At 91

Renowned sci-fi author Ray Bradbury died this morning in Los Angeles at age 91, i09 is reporting, with confirmation from his family and biographer. The report does not indicate the cause of death. “If I had to make any statement, it would be how much I love and miss him,” his grandson Danny Karapetian said. “He influenced so many artists, writers, teachers, scientists, and it’s always really touching and comforting to hear their stories. Your stories. … He was the biggest kid I know.” Read more…

Are you a serious bookworm? Do you find the scent of the printed page borderline orgasmic? Are regular perfumes not quite paper-y enough for you? Sounds like you might want to check out Paper Passion, a new fragrance that smells like–you guessed it–books. Created by a master perfumer in collaboration with Wallpaper magazine, with packaging designed by Karl Lagerfeld (naturally!), Paper Passion is “an opportunity to celebrate all the glorious sensuality of books, at a time when many in the industry are turning against them.” One bottle will set you back $115, but when you consider all the awesome book nerds you’ll attract with every spritz, it seems a small price to pay.

Mommy's New Tattoo

Once upon a time, there was girl who went to a tattoo shop with her mom … nope, from page one, this isn’t your typical picture book.  Mommy’s New Tattoo: A Bedtime Story For People, by Levi Greenacres, is based on the author’s true story of growing up with a parent who has ink and then deciding, as a grownup, whether to get a tat too. Three tattoo artists from the Pacific Northwest are even featured in the book. Whether you’re trying to explain your own tattoo to a child in your life, or just looking for some quirky bedtime reading, think ink! [$15, BuyOlympia.com]

Go Ahead, Play With It

A new book, Hair India: A Guide to the Bizarre Beards and Magnificent Moustaches of Hindustan, celebrates the country’s finest facial hair. My favorite featured mustache is Ram Singh Chauman’s, measuring more than 11 feet. Boasting the longest lip sweater in India, he makes his living as a mustache model, charging a handsome fee to photograph his face. You may have seen his famous whiskers in the film “Octopussy.” How fitting. I wonder how much he charged those girls to play with it. [Telegraph UK]
