“Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.” - Andy Warhol

Class:


It's very good.  Indebted to Kierkegaard, but since Kierkegaard never wrote a novel, The Moviegoer it's as close as we can get.  A lovely meditation on Southern mores, the quest for meaning, and the movies. 

Fun: 


Perhaps the ugliest cover I have ever seen.  The Corrections got me started on serious fiction again, so I'm looking forward to this.  Anyone else going to read it?

The Corrections felt like reading a smart, precocious kid emulating his favorite writers. I didn't get much out of it. I'll give Franzen another chance, though; he could have some good novels in him once he grows up.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Is there anything new in that? God, their comics are the best.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

I might have to read that sometime after the holidays of course. Manson is the creepiest person alive, everything he says is just nuts and yet I can still understand how impressionable young people could go along with it.
You can go to places in the world with pudding. That. Is. Funny.

The craziest thing is his attitude towards it.

I got Charlie's whole album from 1969. If you want it let me know.

you mean the one that was so important he put out that he literally killed for it? It makes me sick hearing his rambling ass song. He made a much better psychopath than a musician.

If you mean LIE: The Love and Terror Cult, it is actually pretty fun and poppy.



I mean, really, he's not as total a wreck as he's often portrayed.  I'm also not here to be his ambassador and suggest that he's necessarily sane or a role model in any sense.  I just think somehow he's become synonymous with ridiculous standards of batshit craziness.

his music annoys the shit out of me, it sounds like it'd fit in well with one of those 70's slasher movies though.
