- Lester Bangs on Van Morrison’s Astral Weeks.
- Junebug would be a great movie if you walked in late and had to leave early. Real people who talk like real people living in a real place. Now where would I be if I was a screwdriver?
- Freud’s Jokes and their Relation to the Unconcious. Done up as a sweet book by Ralph Steadman.
- DFW’s review of an old Updike novel contains a final sentence that I think could serve as a summary for about 50% of fictional characters nowadays (not to mention a few folks we all know): “…it never once occurs to him that the reason he’s so unhappy is that he’s an asshole.”
