The Death-Rattle of Culture | 9/2/2016
September 2, 2016 edition. The prattle:
Google Shut down Dennis Cooper's blog?!
Yes, I know this is old news. But it's back, baby! And Cooper has a book of GIFs called Zac's Freight Elevator coming out via free download in November.
Jonathan Safran Foer has a new novel out.
To whet our appetite, the New York Times Style Magazine published his email correspondence with Natalie Portman. I can't cut too deep cause Foer (or is it Safran Foer?) is a vegan, but what emoji most accurately depicts non-plussed?
Amazon is opening a new storefront in Chicago.
As a city with a storied history with organized crime, this could be a match made in heaven.
Young Thug doesn't want his kids calling him "Thug." He wants his new name to be, "No, My Name Is Jeffrey." Questionable name change? Solid motive.
