Links for 8.8.09: Unemployment, Lolla, Lebowksi, Pynchon and Hughes
by Josh Kimball
*Movies: John Hughes’ former teenage pen pal tells all.
*Architecture: David Byrne is doing his Playing the Building music/architecture mashup thing again, this time with a building in London.
*Unemployment: Economists react to the latest unemployment numbers. But what if they have unemployed economists react to them? You see where I’m going with this? Right? No. Then go away forever.
*Reading: The Virginia Quarterly Review (which for a lit rag has a surprisingly good online presence) compares Thomas Pynchon’s new novel, “Inherent Vice,” with “The Big Lebowski.”
