Thomas Pynchon Pulls a Douglas Coupland?
Though I love independent bookstores, such as the departing ACWLPB (the doctor’s on hand to announce the time of death later today), and the recently departed original Cody’s, even Pynchon “sightings” have evolved for the Internet age.
And the catchword of the day is Netflix guilt (see /., Lifehacker, and Newsweek). I sent back a Spike Lee joint (the mediocre 25th Hour) and the American version of the Office (two episodes watched) this week, after holding on to them for 5 months (at $14.99/month, that’s $75 for two DVD rentals). The only reason why I sent them back is I really really want to watch Maggie Cheung’s Clean, which just came out on DVD.
