Interesting Destination and Recent Consumption

28 01 2008

Someone brought this website to my attention recently. It produces t-shirts based on obscure pop culture references including John Carpenter’s The Thing, The Big Lebowski, etc. It’s pretty interesting.

On another note, I saw There Will Be Blood this weekend. Wow, that is some movie. Everything about it was fantastic. I’m not sure where to begin so I’ll leave it there for now.

Also just finished reading Philip Roth’s novella Goodbye, Columbus. This was a really good book. I picked it up in the airport as the I couldn’t get into the Rick Moody book I was reading. It’s a coming of age story, but considering it was published in 1959, I feel it still has a lot of relevance today. The class themes may be somewhat different, but the struggle with love, a finite summer, and distance seem pretty universal and true until today. I’m going to start hitting Roth’s works and go through them one by one.
