Books (Pt. 1)


The Savage Detectives, Roberto Bolano
This dude is a sick nasty writer. Over my head sometimes (not that familiar with the literary scene in mexico city in the 70s), but highly recommended. Its basically told through small vignettes, recounted stories of many characters that overlap and intersect, and is really beautiful and scary and sexy too. Anyone read 2666? I heard that's rad.

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Hunter S. Thompson
Okay, I know everyone read this in the 8th grade, but I'm late to the game as per usual. It made me want to do tons of acid and mescalin, then not want to do it, then do it, then not want to again. And Las Vegas is crazy (amirite ladies?).

American Psycho, Bret Easton Ellis
Another book everyone read 40 years ago but c'mon! Give me a break! I spent the early 00's reading Jane magazine. Though this book is so gory I had to glaze over a few parts or risk ralphing all over my roommates copy, its a great read. It's about an asshole yuppie whose obsessed with coke, restaurants, and his bod and he would be just another asshole yuppie 'cept he's also a serial killer. Also loved chapters that were just in depth music reviews.

Bad Behavior, Mary Gaitskill
And something by a lady! This collection of short stories, which Molly gave me for my birthday, is phenomenal. Gaitskill's characters are real and awkward, and she is so good with small details that she's like your favorite jacket that has awesome buttons on the cuffs or something. Has the short story that the movie Secretary is based on.

ALSO: erica knows swedish and translated that thing up top! she says: "bozo he can read, bozo is so (can't read, crazy danish), when the others lay around, he reads a book!"

GO SEE: the pictures generation... the Met(!). MUCH better than the neighboring Model as Muse exhibit. Highlights:

robert longo & his creepy life sized american psycho-esque contorting thrashing businessmen.
Untitled (Men in the Cities) (1980).

barbara kruger photocopied collage-posters, infinitely ripped off but can't beat the best.
Untitled (You Are Not Yourself), 1981

richard prince's rephotographed & manipulated 70s advertisements.
Untitled (four single men with interchangeable backgrounds looking to the right), 1977

plus cindy sherman, a memorial installation for jean seberg (forgot the artist), and charles clough.

spring post

(even though its raining)

From NYTimes article "Let’s Hear It for the Bees" by Leon Kreitzman
"In 'Philosophia Botanica' (1751), the great taxonomist Carl Linnaeus proposed that it should be possible to plant a floral clock. He noted that two species of daisy, the hawk’s-beard and the hawkbit, opened and closed at their respective times within about a half-hour each day. He suggested planting these daisies along with St. John’s Wort, marigolds, water-lilies and other species in a circle. The rhythmic opening and closing of the plants would be the effective hands of this clock."

that would be awesome, right? let's do that.
