“Yeah, Pomo. You know, weird for the sake of being weird.”

Yeah, but this one is also very good.  More original posts coming soon, but in the meantime, check out these several fine links:

  • Jacket Copy has put together an incredible list of “61 essential postmodern reads.” What’s really great about the list is the legend of little icons they’ve created to explain what about each title makes it pomo.  You absolutely must, if you believe in literature, click over there.
  • Fugazi.  On n+1. I’m a fan.  “I didn’t smoke, drink, or fuck either—I looked forward to all three, but it wasn’t working out. It was evident that the people in the straight-edge world were radically unlike me, trying to get away from things I didn’t need to get away from.”
