(just kidding, it sucks. unless you're one of the two people who likes my writing)

That made me all sorts of happy! Or it at least helped me pass by an hour or two.

On topic: I have to read all of Ellen Foster by tomorrow. I think I took the wrong English class.

I just got finished reading What's Eating Gilbert Grape? It was a good book. The movie and the book are like two different stories. I was suprised. If you liked to movie don't read the book. You'll be dissapointed.

Isn't Thomas Pynchon actually Jim Morrison, who faked his own death to live his dream of being a writer? That's why he never shows his face...

This is why, as a film student, I make a point to read the book before seeing a film adaptation of it. Once you see the film, you've lost the opportunity to create your own image as you'll always imagine the actor speaking the dialogue on the set of the film.

Actually, the new Pynchon effort is not going to be remembered as the 'greatest literary event of the year'. It's a decent effort from an author that has done far better, (Gravity's Rainbow), and comes hot on the heels of another 'respectable' effort from Norman Mailer, (his fictionalisation of the early life of Hitler). Both men have gargantuam reputations, and it has been insinuated in the British press that prior works rather than the new books are the main reason for all this chatter.

I think this could have been an interesting thread; but it kind of seems like you're doing literature by numbers to look big and impressive rather than for the joy of it.

On that note, just how badly does 'A Clockwork Orange' kick ass?
I am way too old for this...
