like you said, pubrick, asking someone to explain pynchon here is like someone here being asked by a literature person to explain pta -- mm-hmm. no but seriously. pynchon is a modern knight of literature, and he lived in manhattan beach (a lil south of la) for several years, is talked about in la sometimes (in order to talk about la)(and he has ucla/usc classes of course), and i've heard mark danielewski say pynchon was against movies in the 70s, and danielewski complained about inherent vice being made (i became frustrated irl, and danielewski probably google tags his own name, sorry dude, true story).

pynchon is reclusive like sallinger was, provides comedy like heller does (wait, is heller dead? i should google), and he has intellectual densities that would make him a good topic with gaddis. so pubrick threw down good pubrick names. and like them, pynchon has his individual rep

most of his life is a secret, but a story i've heard is that one day, while living in manhattan beach, he went into the street in a party way and handed everyone in the street a pie and there was a pie throwing party. it's the only classic pynchon irl story i know and like

Fuck yes!  Reading that they're about to shoot this made my day. 

I'm curious to hear your guys thoughts are you glad that Robert Elswit is back on board or would you rather see what Paul and Mihai Malaimare Jr could do for a couple of pictures?

Can't wait to get some official casting news. If Cheech turns out to be in it, I'm quitting my job and starting a cult based around my prophetic abilities. You're all invited. Bring chicks.

Seriously, fuck that guy. Incidents like this are all the proof you need that old-school entertainment media is rotting outside its grave.

EDIT: Trolling the dude like crazy, by the way. Who cares to join me?

What a douche-canoe.

Elswit is fantastic but I'd really like to see PTA work with Mihai again at some point. Seriously, I struggled to believe how good The Master looked when I first watched it.


Also, I think old Paulie could do a good job of adapting Vonnegut. I would like to see that.

Oh good god, yes. A PTA version of God Bless You Mr. Rosewater, or Jailbird, or Cat's Cradle, or (though George Roy Hill's version is pretty much fantastic and definitive) Slaughterhouse-Five... my pants are already coming off.

Reelist, you need to get in on this.

Time to redeem yourself after the debacle in the drunk tank.

i can golden bridge this with a recent link to an article from a young hollywood actor whose first book comes out soon (i've read it, it's good, good publisher too):

i'd like pt to aim back at pt alone, but vonnegut has supporters, definitely

I have a secret account made especially for trolling. This dude's fucked.

Cheech would be the best... we should be finding out the cast within the month  :yabbse-grin: :bravo:

Pynchon has a new novel, Bleeding Edge, coming out September 17.

Bleeding Edge is set in New York City, “in the lull between the collapse of the dotcom boom and the terrible events of September 11,” and concerns Silicon Alley, New York’s community of high-tech companies. It centers on Maxine Tarnow, “your average working mom” who runs “a nice little fraud investigation business on the Upper West Side, chasing down … small-scale con artists.” She’s had her license revoked, and “now she can follow her own code of ethics—carry a Beretta, do business with sleazebags, hack into people’s bank accounts.” Maxine “starts looking into the finances of a computer-security firm and its billionaire geek CEO,” and “soon finds herself mixed up with a drug runner in an art deco motorboat, a professional nose obsessed with Hitler’s aftershave, a neoliberal enforcer with footwear issues, plus elements of the Russian mob and various bloggers, hackers, code monkeys, and entrepreneurs, some of whom begin to show up mysteriously dead. Foul play, of course.”

The book’s publisher, Penguin, calls it “a historical romance of New York in the early days of the internet, not that distant in calendar time but galactically remote from where we’ve journeyed to since”. First page below.

EXCLUSIVE: Kevin J. O'Connor To Re-Team With ‘The Master' Co-Star Joaquin Phoenix For ‘Inherent Vice'
Source: Cigs and RV

Chicago-born character actor Kevin J. O'Connor has been kicking around Hollywood for quite some time and along the way has racked up an impressive resume working with the likes of Francis Ford Coppola, Robert Altman and of course, Paul Thomas Anderson. PTA cast the chameleon-like O'Connor in his last two films as a character who is eventually beaten mercilessly by the leading man (alternately Daniel Day-Lewis and Joaquin Phoenix). Why do we bring this up? Well, we have received word that O'Connor is set to re-team with PTA once again to film an as yet unspecified role in "Inherent Vice" where the actor will join the esteemed ranks of John C. Reilly, Philip Baker Hall and Luis Guzmán in the PTA Three-Timers Club. For those who have read the book, do you have any guesses for who O'Connor might be playing (and does that character at some point get beaten within an inch of their lives)? Leave your guesses in the comments. Filming on 'Vice' is set to get underway later this month so there should be lots more casting announcements to come.
