Best Here's a Hint

If you're looking for me sometime later this month, you should start your search at the Neiman Gallery at Columbia University during its exhibition of "Selections from the Filmography of James O. Incandenza."

James O. Incandenza is not a real filmmaker. He is a character in Infinite Jest, a dead character, actually—the filmmaker who created the film "Infinite Jest" that the book is named after, along with about 70 more films (detailed in an extensive footnote to the text). This Neiman Gallery commissioned a bunch of filmmakers to recreate those films from the footnote and now they will be showing at this gallery.

Sometimes some people they just have the best ideas.

Like I said, look for me there.

And here's what I had to say after I read Infinite Jest. Best book I read in 2009? Yeah, probably.

I love the shirts and your visits to the D.I. I've read "Kane & Abel" and the follow-on book, "The Prodigal Daughter". Those were in the rebellious pre-teen years. I swear those books were ever so popular in the 80's.
