B.S. The evolution of the canon of American literature in the 20th century is nothing but subjectivity techniques co-opted from Joyce pastiched on themes derived from the nineteenth century Russian masters. And Julian Peterson is going to make sure Grossman is stuck in the pocket where Lofa can put him down.
Wasn't it a Grossman who did the most recent translation of Don Quixote?
By the 1920s Seattle had already had the first general strike of the USA. Way to fact-check, big-shot.
I agree with the first line of the Publisher's Weekly description:
There would seem to be little reason for yet another translation of Don Quixote,
but if that's what Rex wants to do in the offseason, so be it.
Don't you ever knock our whores! Our whores were the most generous whores that ever lived, and it was thanks to our whores that Dan Savage et al aren't writing from Tacoma right now. Whores are a proud part of Seattle's history and continue to be a vital part of our economy.
Too bad Wrigley's never hosted a major league baseball game.
Are you trying to make Seattle out to be the bad guys because it took them longer to exploit the Natives/environment? Chicago must have had us beat by about 100 years in that category.
Also, Fry Day, I think you have Grossman's latest literary undertaking wrong. He actually did a marvelous piece in the New York Times Review of Books on the homoerotic undertones in Ginsburg/Kerouac/Burrows/et. al. Fascinating.
He will also spend the entire game on his ass.
And, hand off the ball to Thomas Jones with extreme caution. Jones will have to be pointing in the right direction in order to gain positive yardage, since he'll be in the process of running home crying.
I love these sports posts on The Stranger by Northwestern University Professor William Savage. Why use the "Chicago Fan" moniker? Why not "William Savage Ph.D.? It makes The Stranger look better to have a Chicago University Professor writing for The Slog.
William Savage (Ph.D. Northwestern University)
teaches courses in twentieth-century American literature, with special focus on the novel and the Lost and Beat Generations. His research focuses on theories of how people read narrative in relation to aesthetics (ideas about what is or is not good art) and ideology (politics as made manifest in literature). He also writes about the relationship between popular and elite culture in the context of evolving standards for what is thought to be great literature.
I do like The Moose, though.
Bill Fan/Josh/Shoshanna/Kimberly/Red State/Racist Watch/Religion Sucks/Any Other Fan/Ignorant Gay Cracker/Foodie/Anne and any other I'm missing:
Doesn’t the Seattle Weekly pay you to do something beside surf the Slog and post your "sarcastic" comments?
Yes, I understand feeding you accomplishes nothing, but please, for the love of Christ, fuck off and die.
Yeah, fuck off ya pussie. Ya fuckin' dickwipe. Look at yourself, ya fuckin' dickhead.
No more jokes about the Cubs. You're right, it's too easy.
I see the Cubs lost today, 5-2. Still, that's 2 more than the Bears are gonna score on Sunday!
I took American Lit with Bill Savage. He was tre cool.
Apparently he didn't teach French.
I took Penthouse Magazine from Bill(y). He was not cool about it at all.
No need to get tetchy. I love Chicago people. William Savage Phd is a nice addition to the Seattle discourse. A specialist in The Beat writers is very cool, If you've got it flaunt it I always say.
Fact check on the Slog? How about look up irony/humor/slagging. I tood the bloody Seattle Underground Tour and know damn well that they weren't whores, they were seamstresses.
Whoever WCAS02 is, hey.
As for the rest, brace yourself.
