Hi gang. I’m spending the week in residence at kottke.org this week. Here’s what I’ve written so far:
- Napoleonic preproduction: On Stanley Kubrick’s never-filmed movie about Napoleon.
- The Beastie Boys, Annotated: A short guide to pop-culture references in the band’s lyrics.
- Fuck you, pay me (Simonides of Keos): The first Greek poet (probably) to write for money and to write poetry that was primarily intended to be read, not sung.
Join me throughout the week for more bunly blockquote goodness.
