Everyone slows down to see a wreck on the highway. Few of us stick around to see the cleanup and the repairs. Given that Dunham's story includes therapy when she was in her single digits, ongoing battles with obsessive-compulsive disorder, and more failed relationships than Henry VIII, some readers might be wondering what they can learn from this privileged year-old's so-called life. Relatability is quite an achievement for a self-obsessed artist who wrote and directed her first full-length feature film, "Tiny Furniture," at age 24 and won a Golden Globe last year for writing, directing and acting in her hit HBO series.
She has been called the voice of her generation and named one of Time magazine's most influential people in the world. The resulting memoir — inspired by Helen Gurley Brown's credo "Having It All," which Dunham happened upon at a thrift shop — is a vehicle for twentysomethings to navigate the transition from adolescence to adulthood.
In other words, here's a guide for steering clear of Lena Dunham's wreckage. Fully half of the book is about sex — specifically, the neurotic Dunham's inability to enjoy it. The insecurity led to reliance on prescription drugs — she carries around Advil, Lexapro, Mucinex, Klonopin and Tamiflu for "emotional security" — as well as anorexia and a sexual assault in college for which, naturally, she blames herself.
But I also know that at no moment did I consent to being handled that way. I never gave him permission. The lesson? The truth can boost self-image, not destroy it. Dunham's version of self-help is definitely more self than help, but even as readers find themselves cringing, they'll also be laughing — say, at the time Dunham masturbated in third grade page 16 or had diarrhea during a nude scene page 99or when she compares sex to "shoving a loofah into a Mason jar" page Last month, nearly people responded to an open call to perform at her book signings.
She ended up hiring — and eventually paying, after she was caught stiffing them — a sand artist, a ukulele player and some a cappella singers. There is one thing Dunham won't discuss — and it offers perhaps her greatest lesson.
Her lips — and her pen cap — are absolutely sealed when it comes to talking about her boyfriend of two years, musician Jack Antonoff. But surveying those words, I realized they are mine. He is mine to protect," she writes. Women have been handing down that bit of advice for generations, but it certainly applies to information: Less can indeed be more. Lena Dunham has a lot a real lot to say about what she has learned in her 28 years on Earth.
But any New York woman could write her own book of "life lessons" from the school of hard knocks. So here are some excerpts:.
Carol Massa, 68, retired professor and painter: "I tell young women, 'Don't let anyone stop you from following your passion. It worked. Linda John, 67, Wales: "Don't do anything that doesn't make you happy Also, stay in shape. I was getting ready for my office Christmas party and I hadn't looked into the mirror and had no idea how much weight I had gained!
I lost the weight and never put on weight again. You have no idea how bad it felt going to a party and not looking the part.Together they were a dynamite coupling. Kylie and Michael may have seemed an unlikely pairing but the Aussie duo's whirlwind romance changed Kylie for good and speaking in a documentary about Michael's life, she has lifted the lid on their relationship. Between andKylie believes Michael helped her transform from a innocent chart-topping pop singer into a sex-vamp ready to unleash her new persona upon the world.
What happened in those two years had a profound effect on Kylie's outlook and life choices and she described her time with the INXS singer as a "a dark bad boy and I was the pure good girl". The explosive film, Mystify: Michael Hutchence, documents his life and has contributions from those involved, until he committed suicide in a Sydney hotel room on November 22, Speaking to the filmmakers, year-old Kylie said: "Sex, love, food, drugs, music, travel, books, you name it, he wanted to experience it.
He definitely awakened my desire for things in my world. There was nothing much that was 'off limits' and Kylie recalled a moment in which she 'joined the mile high club' in the sight of Australia's Prime Minister. Hiding under a blanket on a Qantas flight, Kylie and Michael enjoyed a little carnal interaction, just feet away from Bob Hawke. Kylie first met Michael when she went to an INXS gig and he invited her back to his hotel afterwards. This was the start of an unlikely relationship, in which Kylie said she felt "very safe" and "protected" despite Michael's chaotic lifestyle.
It was her willingness to try something new that seemed to fit in with his desire to experience all that he could. It felt loving, yet sad, but was probably doomed. By though the short fuse of their relationship had reached its end Kylie said Michael was a 'broken man' by the end of it. Kylie didn't divulge what had ultimately brought an end to their wild affair, but she did fly across the world from Tokyo to New York so that she could end it in person.
The pop singer said: "He was on all fours on the floor crying. I just know he was a broken man. I left pretty confounded and destroyed and knew that was it.
Despite being the one that called time on their relationship, Kylie said that she was 'heartbroken'. Kylie continued: "He broke my heart. I have to confess that the hurt stayed for quite a long time.
It was shortly after their split that Michael met Danish supermodel Helena Christensen, and his rollercoaster life adventure was up and running again. Do you have a story to sell?Namely, that you should always write what you know about. And secondly, all first novels are heavily autobiographical.
BM: I was born and grew up in Durham city. Margaret Thatcher oversaw my formative years by raping and pillaging the local economy, but like everyone else I'm sure she'd now reply "Hey, it was the 80's! Durham was a great place to grow up though. There was just enough to do to not die from boredom but not enough to keep me there without first seeing some of the world.
Durham City is a strange mix of teenage mothers in shellsuits, wealthy students, battling beer boys in for the evening from the ex-pit villages and some of the Northeast's more upwardly mobile sorts; a collision of old historical buildings and urbane high street coffee shops, piss-stinking bus station and a beautiful cathedral.
To most Geordies, Durham is 'posh' anyway. As with anyone in any place you gravitate towards those you feel most comfortable with to halve the chance of being the recipient of another random street-beating. Sex-and-drugs-and-rock-n-roll ensured that my higher education options were limited and, having been turned down by every university and college in the land, I ended up moving to Luton, where they had just hung a 'University' sign on the former poly.
Luton is a culture-free hell hole of subways, roundabouts, nasty nightclubs, nastier hookers, racial tension, drug problems At college there was a lot of beer, music, amphetamine, discussion and endless Blitzkrieg trips to London where the true excitement lay. Sometimes me and a couple of friends would glam-punk ourselves up and go down the local nightclub to see what happened. Sometimes we got beaten up, sometimes we stole their ladies.
Inside Kylie Minogue's 'sex and drug fuelled' affair with Michael Hutchence
I studied English Literature on a course by feminists and Marxists all called 'Ruth' or 'Julian' and spent all my free time either drinking or sitting in the library discovering people like Henry MillerSylvia Plath and Hemingway -- the usual -- and reading books about politics, media and art.
Reading, writing and listening to music was all that really mattered. Halfway through my, ahem, studies I started writing 'properly' i. It gave me great pleasure to leave a note to one of my lecturers saying "Sorry I can't make it today but I'm going to London to interview Noel Gallagher". The interview fell through, but it made me look quite good in front of my peers.
Personally I've always despised Oasis anyway. So conservative, so pedestrian. Writing took over and I began to spend more and more time at the Melody Maker offices in London where I viewed the writers the same as others would view rock stars, either sleeping on my sister's floor or hanging round for the 5am milk train home from Kings Cross. I left college with a 'Desmond' -- a a bum's degree and was offered a job as staff writer at the magazine the following week.Court paperwork indicated the 3-year-old was found dead on June 14 at a home near 67th Avenue and Happy Valley Road.
When officers arrived on the scene, they interviewed the father, year-old Ryan Konkol, and the mother, year-old Shala Durham. According to police, Durham and Konkol both admitted to using illicit drugs. Konkol told police he obtained Xanax from a drug dealer and had used heroin and methadone. The father reportedly told police it is possible his 3-year-old obtained the pills and ingested the substances. Court documents indicate both of the parents fell asleep, and the next morning found their son dead.
According to a toxicology report, the victim had a lethal amount of fentanyl in his system. All rights reserved. Edit Article Add New Article. Toggle navigation Menu. Don't have an account? Sign Up Today. Shala Durham and Ryan Konkol. Source: Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.

But how much they win or lose depends on the betting odds for the fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, which have changed dramatically since they were first recorded.
Mayweather has an inhuman 49-0 record in boxing matches, while McGregora mixed martial arts and UFC fighterhas not fought any pure boxing matches professionally. That imbalance has made Mayweather a massive favorite, but since the fight date was announced in June, the odds have tightened. Those numbers require some explanation of the weird betting odds system used in the United States, called moneylines.
So the more negative the moneyline for an outcome, the more likely betting markets think that outcome is. The biggest winners, of course, will be Mayweather and McGregor, who, win or lose, stand to earn hundreds of millions of dollars.

Vegas reveals the betting odds Contributed by Jordan Zakarin Sep 6, 2017 Share This Post Shared 2 Comments Once again, Lucasfilm has removed a director from a Star Wars film. After booting Chris Miller and Phil Lord from the Han Solo spinoff this summer, and sidelining Gareth Edwards for big reshoots and edits on last winter's Rogue One, the latest forsaken filmmaker is Colin Trevorrow, who will no longer be at the helm of the untitled Episode IX.
By now we know the drill: Lucasfilm releases a statement (or not, in the case of Edwards), fans speculate as trade reporters scramble for insight, and then a few days later, a new director is named.
