howling fantods…

from the pages of never a dull moment…

shortly after a tremor shook both my soul & pots from my studio shelves – i sat waiting for a bus – flipping thru today’s NYT.

turns out the Decembrists have just produced a video based on the fictional warfare game – ‘Eschaton’ – from David Foster Wallace’s seminal Infinite Jest.

i’ve been thinking a lot of DFW lately – mostly with sadness for his loss – as i plod thru his posthumous the Pale King.  i’m so not in a hurry to get thru this last piece of writing from the greatest mind of a generation.  every brilliant page is bittersweet.

and but so, here’s a link to

the NYT article


the new video.

Let’s hope Michael Schur has the good sense to not make an Infinite Jest movie…

    I’m also currently reading The Pale King. A very big book — I call it my bible.
