Did you hear that Wilco’s new album is going to be called “Wilco (The Album),” and that it contains the song “Wilco (The Song)?” No? Well, now you have. On to the links:
- Via Boing Boing comes this excellent collection of book jackets for fake novelizations of movies. [EDIT! Gillian has pointed out that she already sent me this link nearly 3 months ago. Mea culpa, Gillian, mea culpa.
- Via Kottke.org, the Fight Club theory of Ferris Beuler’s Day Off: “This is part of the reason why the “three” characters can see so much of Chicago in less than one day — Cameron is alone, just imagining it all.”
- This is a link for my friends in bookselling and publishing (although some of you ubernerds might find it interesting, too): The excellent 3 Percent blog has a post about the perils and benefits of marketing books online. It’s a must read for anybody thinking about pitching a book to a blogger or starting up a Goodreads page to sell books. (Via Conversational Reading)
- And finally, you must read Cecil Castellucci’s recap of the LA Times Festival of Books: “True to form, we got into trouble for putting pineapples on our heads.” Via (and Viva) Edan!
Okay, I’m a little loopy today, so I think it’s best I wrap this up right here. Back tomorrow with something a bit more substantive.
