This is totally a post about nothing except The Great Gatsby, and you should PROBABLY IGNORE IT.

1. Did you know that there is a Great Gatsby Game? Because I didn't until [livejournal.com profile] two_if_by_sea told me about it the other night, and I must tell you, my life is enriched. Apparently it was adapted for NES at some point and some guy has put it up online, and it is...oh my god, you guys, it is GLORIOUSLY RIDICULOUS. You have to fight the eyeglasses! You throw your hat at waiters and dancing girls! AHAHAHAHAHAHA FOREVER, ETC.

This part is me rambling around thoughts that may or may not have any merit )

4. SO READ THIS BOOK IF YOU HAVEN'T YET, GUYS, THAT IS MY POINT. There are problems with it and it's okay if you read it and hate it, but just...you know, just read it. It's this and East of Eden for me (yes, I know you all know that, yes, I know I insert East of Eden in everything, yes, shut up), and this morning I heard these two high school kids bitching that they weren't even gonna bother with the Cliff's notes, and it hurt me. It hurt me in my soul.

5. Have some Kate Beaton for your troubles! Goddamn, but I laughed at these this morning.

And two more )
