Traci Lords (originally Nora Louise Kuzma) was born on May 7th, 1968 in Steubenville, Ohio. She is nothing short of a legend of the silver screen. She has somehow found a way to fill her one life up with several lives.
She has had many incarnations. She has lived a fantastical life that seems more like fiction than real life, the sort of story you hear that leaves you gobsmacked. There are many labels that one could apply to the lovely Ms. Tracy Lords. Words like fearless spring to mind… actress… trailblazer… cultural icon. But I think the word survivor says it best.
She has had a prolific career in film and just a few of her accomplishments include films like Not of This Earth, Laser Moon, Raw Nerve and The Tommyknockers.

When I was in high school I would actually sign up for junk mail. It didn’t matter what it was: newspapers, magazines, anything. I’d get at least three free newspapers every day that I would never read. I’d just collect them and store them in boxes. I loved getting junk mail. It made me feel…important.
And then a couple of years later I discovered aromatherapy and things got better for me.
