This week in mash-ups: LOUIS CK: IN THE RYE
Gatsby quotes + Arrested Development photos = awesome mash-up. See them all at Book Riot.
Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy, it’s a Great Gatsby - Arrested Development mash-up. So call us Maeby.
Leslie Knope would LEAN IN. Obvi.
Now that Clarissa Explains It All is going to be a book, we’re firing up our nostalgia engines and dreaming of other Nickelodeon-inspired book series. What’s on your wish list?
“On a scale of 1 to Chris Brown, how pissed is he?”
What to get the girl who has the biggest inferiority complex in Brooklyn (“No one could ever hate me as much as I hate myself, okay? So any mean thing anyone has to say about me, I’ve already said to me, about me, probably in the last half hour.”)?
Razor’s Edge by Somerset Maugham
Because Hannah is way too liberal-arts-educated-proud to browse the self-help section of her bookstore, I’m thinking girl needs her literary medicine to come in the form of a hip classic that doesn’t suffer from overexposure. The Razor’s Edge is my favorite Maugham novel (sorry, Of Human Bondage, sorry.) It tells the story of Larry Darrell, who, after being f—ed up by the horrors of WWI, sets off in search of Life’s Meaning. Hannah needs to figure out what her life means too. She could also stand a strong dose of perspective (Horrors of World War I > Being a twenty-something in twenty-teens NYC).
But a book being built in to a show? According to a press release from Warner, this is the “world’s first fully integrated licensed publication that has emerged from within the television series’ storyline itself.”
So yeah, looks like Insight is making some huge, incredible moves in terms of fan service. What do we think of this? And what television shows would you like to see do this?
