Kafka’s shipping out 4/14/07 April 11, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — antof9 @ 6:51 pm

Welcome back everyone! Well this is the last week of Kafka on the Shore. I’m excited to read it…one day. Let’s meet at Scooter Joe’s this Saturday at 10:30.

Following our new schedule we should be taking a break on the 21st. In the interim, we have been known to have a movie night. Is anyone interested in doing that?? And since there are no movies that correspond with this book, does anyone have a movie suggestion?

Have a great day!!

    ha! Maybe a movie about Kafka? Or “Beaches”? I am sooooo funny 🙂

    I’ll be at the BookCrossing convention in Charleston (I know — I’ve bypassed book nerd and gone headfirst into full geekdom), so enjoy yourselves that weekend.

    Looking forward to finally finishing KotS.

    Ant, do we need to have an intervention??

    I am suggesting a Japanese movie “Jisatsu saakuru” (Suicide Club), which I recently heard on a podcast as being a really good movie.

    Charleston as in SC? I need to hire you to pick up some Zaxby sauce for me:)

  4. Ant Says:

    I think it’s too late for an intervention. Save yourselves 🙂

    Shanda — that’s the one. I’m going with an extra suitcase of books, I think. I’m sure there’ll be room for that coming home. Although will I be asked to pronounce it?

    You pronounce it like you would say “Zach’s bees”. And thank you for being my enabler:)

    I have a suggestion… it doesn’t have to be for this time around (I’m curious about the Japanese movie, too). The Namesake is an indie movie that just came out. It’s based on the novel by Jhumpa Lahiri. Her book of short stories, Interpreter of Maladies, won the 2000 Pulitzer Prize for fiction. It stars Kal Penn from Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle (which I saw and was able to appreciate).

    Since “Slaugherhouse 5” was one of our first BBC books, I thought it should be noted on our blog that Mr. Vonnegut died today at age 84.

    No details, just the “breaking news” headline on msnbc.com.

    RIP, Mr. Vonnegut

    Oh, no! He’s one of my all time favorite authors. *sniff*
