Video Accompaniment:  So throughout my 1.5 years (and counting) adventure on The Resolution Project, I’ve encountered quite a few books that I thought were absolutely awful. Some of them, Blood Meridian being perhaps the best example, I was able to recognize the genius in, even though it may not have been something I particularly wanted to read in my off hours. Others, like An American Tragedy or The Man Who Loved Children, I didn’t really […]

As you may recall, I’ve been keeping myself sane during the trial that is The Man Who Loved Children by reading other books in between 100 page blocks of that piece of crap. I picked up a few books while I was down in Seattle from a place called the Elliott Bay Book Company. It’s a really awesome store, and should you find yourself in the Capitol Hill district of Seattle you should definitely check […]

Hey everyone, I’m sorry that I haven’t been posting very much here, but things have been crazy this month. Between Graphic Content screening The Rocketeer, interviewing Atomic Robo creators Brian Clevinger and Scott Wegener, being interviewed on podcasts (more on that coming soon…), trying to catch up on movies I missed last year, the absolutely frigid temperatures we had here a couple of weeks ago, end of the month comics ordering, and everything else, I […]

Here’s a lovely short film from Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation) and designer Olympia Le-Tan. It’s poignant, funny and sort of naughty, and since I saw two Time 100 best novels in it (Under the Volcano by Malcolm Lowry and The Heart is a Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers, which is most likely my next book to read), I decided it counts. My project, my rules. Enjoy. Spike Jonze: Mourir Auprès de Toi on Nowness.com.

Sometimes coincidence is amazing. I just finished the Eschaton sequence in Infinite Jest last night, and was thinking of writing a blog post about how much I enjoyed it (the sequence). It looks like it’d be a fun game to play, probably a lot easier now too with our advancements in computer technology over the years. Maybe Apple could put out an iphone app for the game, with calculators to help you figure out civilian […]

Just a brief mention here, but at http://greatgatsbygame.com, they’ve just unearthed some facts about The Great Gatsby‘s NES game that never saw the light of day, in addition to letting you play it!. As this is to be the thirty-ninth book I have to read on my quest, I thought that some of the less literary-minded of you might enjoy playing through the game so you’ll have some semblance of what I’m talking about then.
