The Post of the Random

NaNoWriMo Update: 12339. Overall manuscript: 40966.
Passing the 40k mark deeply heartens me for some reason, I guess because I am now 10k words away from actual novel length, and a short hop there to publishable length.


Was sitting on the couch this afternoon contemplating my bookshelves, as I am wont to do at times. A couple of weeks ago I had a discussion with some friends wherein I explained my personal methods of book organization, which in my case is that I put books together with other books I think they'd get along with. Friend Jim wisely pointed out that finding something to get along with Nietzsche--who is currently sandwiched between Barthes and Kant (I am sure my lit theory teacher from UGA is all proud of this, btw)--is very difficult, and who/what would actually be suitable going there?

Well this afternoon I figured it out.

Superman, dangit. I needs me some Superman.


A reminder that the first issue of Lapham's Quarterly is out next week. A reminder to myself to visit B&N for that purpose.


Lastly, I watched Talk to Me tonight. It starred Don Ceadle and Chewitel Ejifor (one of those rare British actors who can do an American accent that doesn't get converted to Southern or Brooklynese) and was about DC radio DJ Petey Greene. It was a damn good movie, though sometimes they mixed up file footage and new footage badly. An okay James Brown impersonator at a concert interspersed with file footage of DC riots--it don't fly. But oh my god they were in front of Ben's Chilly Bowl and I got all kinds of homesick. And deeply craving a cheese burger and banana milkshake. Dammit.


More later.
