Random Friday

The Fine Brothers spoil 50 novels in just 4 minutes (really).

Post-apocalyptic bookstore browsing:

In the distant future, a bottle is found deep inside the rainforests of Southeast Asia. Its contents unlock the secret of what happened to three men in a bookstore at the end of civilization, and their attempt to live on. This is the trailer to the short film, ‘Alexandria‘ which premiered at the South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin Texas.

One of my proudest moments was when I found my first book on the shelf at Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s City Lights Bookstore in San Francisco. Now I’m not so sure. I thought that this was a joke until I checked-out the website.

“Calling all angelheaded hipsters. City Lights bookstore, San Francisco, Calif., is sponsoring a book trailer contest to celebrate the release of the film HOWL, and is asking potential entrants “to create your own personal book trailer for Allen Ginsberg’s notorious epic poem HOWL, no longer than 90 seconds. E-mail us a link to your trailer to contest@citylights.com.”
