A Week in the Life

Pondering the deep meaning in Brightest Day?

All week, over at the Paris Review site, Dan will be sharing a diary of his recent cultural diet. You can find the first installment here. It’s heavy on music bios this time around, and considering last week’s events, there will be lots of C.F. and Chippendale talk to come in future posts, I’m sure. I think it’s fair to assume Dan will forget to mention all of the crappy disposable comics he may have read…

Actually, so far, he’s been admirably forthcoming about all of the bad television he watches—often, it seems as if the participants in these things are suspiciously likely to have picked that particular week to “re-read” Proust. If you know what I mean.

  1. McDonough’s Andy Milligan biography THE GHASTLY ONE is also a must-read, especially for those fascinated by the intersection of exploitation film and ‘underground’ city culture…

  2. Just ordered that book, Joe. Thanks for the rec.

    Y’know, I did forget to mention the funny books Chippendale left out for me: Fraction’s Thor issues thus far (awesome); A Garth Ennis zombie comic book series (too scary for me); and a manga series that name of which escapes me. There is some nerdery in the second part of my diary… umm … last night I read Captain America 189-191 from 1975. Frank Robbins!

    Thor, Crossed and Gantz. That’s what was left beside Nadel’s nightstand, his dream maps for the evening.
