i am not a stuffed tiger.

hoo, boy!

Though I'm not sure that the essay ever comes together to say anything deeply meaningful, the following topics are mentioned and discussed in "The believers" published in the Guardian:
Dave Eggers, David Foster Wallace, Zadie Smith, Nick Horby, artist cliques of the past and present, non-branding as branding, McSweenification, the Believer, earnestness and post-irony, the triumph of aural culture in literature, Pabst Blue Ribbon.

I can't really tell if the tone of the article is snarky or just British (or both?). The article is mildly long, but for that list alone, it's probably worth reading.

nana was on that yacht! you killed nana!

happy monday. I guess it's the first day of the quarter, but I'm not taking any classes; so it's rather anticlimactic. In other news, it's summerlike in Seattle and I've taken to drinking espresso beverages in the morning. I didn't think it would come to this.

Being at the office led to useful meetings, printing and highlighting, and looking up articles to continue the process of independent learning. I came home to read a couple of them, watched last night's episode of the Soparnos, and am generally killing time until it's time to go to the Crocodile to see the Unicorns.
