Lipstick Traces

As both of you know I'm reading Greil Marcus' Lipstick Traces now. I'm only half way through, it's slow going, occasionally jarring frequently laborious but you never know when something will grab you. I soldier on because those bits are too valuable, maybe just because I haven't read anything like this in years but probably because it has deep resonance with my analytical biases. Oh, and it reminded me of something that a fellow student stood up and asked in class back in college. Next post I'll attempt to describe this fascination instead of just talking about how it makes me feel.
