The Brief History of the Dead // Kevin Brockmeier

It’s strange how much life is in a book while you read it and the second you finish, it’s as if all that life has drained out.

This by the way is the strangest writer and book yet. He is basically showing off how much minutae he notices in day to day life. He also is showing off how trippy stream of consciousness he can be. And I must say he is fucking good at both.

There’s a problem with consistency here where one minute it’s surviving the Arctic and the next it’s pages of an elderly couple musing about their unremarkable relationship. There’s also the girl riding in the giant dog’s fur ‎with the marble formations dripping between the shafts only to dissolve into the sun. Or whatever.

I used this book to put myself to sleep. It was phenominally interesting and equally boring in turn. Strange. Truly.

Deadpool has taken witty repartee to a whole new level where there’s a little room left for ass whoopin and even less room left for movie‎s.

Courtney’s Books: Blutsbrüder (Ernst Haffner)

Ernst Haffner

Set in the pre-Hitler Berlin, this follows a few of the zillion or so homeless teenagers after WW I. Interesting subject and told in a plain, straightforward voice. The book was apparently labeled “degenerate literature” by the Nazis and thought to be eradicated in the massive book-burnings. Not much is known about the author but is thought to have been a social worker and journalist at the time. Immediately engaging and strangely dispassionate.

Odditorium Construction Update 9

PART IX

Halloween night of 2015 Portland was hit with a huge storm. Water couldn’t drain fast enough off the Oddy roof over the “Grey Room.” The roof collapsed. No one was hurt, even the damage to the equipment was minimal. It’s taken a long long time to clean up and now construction is underway. And Courtney Taylor-Taylor is going to be showing you some of the progression in the coming weeks on our socials.
