The Clip Show

December 2, 2009 at 12:10 am 7 comments

On most 90’s sitcoms, there’s at least one episode that is mostly just parts of other episodes all mashed together: aka, the clip show. This post is LT’s version of that episode, only instead of having bits of our own posts, it’s a combination of random things on the Internet that I found interesting and wanted to share.

First, check out this article on Dickens editing his own manuscript of A Christmas Carol, just in time for Christmas! The manuscript offers a rare glimpse into Dickens’ writing process, and is on display at the Morgan Library in New York City. In case you can’t get to New York to see it yourself, the article has a link to facsimiles of a few of the manuscript pages.

Second, what with this swiftly turning into LT Race Week (Uncle Tom’s Cabin for the Classics Challenge and a discussion of Disney’s The Princess and the Frog on Friday), I wanted to point out this post and this one, both about the complexities of race, culture, and literature.

Third, Cormac McCarthy’s typewriter is up for sale — and would make the perfect gift for that special book-loving someone on your list! (HINT. HINT.)

Fourth, I have recommended Toby Barlow’s Sharp Teeth before, but with the current New Moon craze, I feel like it’s my duty to point it out to you again. If you’re going to read about werewolves (and hey, who doesn’t love a good werewolf story from time to time?), please at least turn to the book Mother Jones called “a future cult classic.”

Fifth, if you insist on reading something about Twilight, read this. I laughed out loud through the entire thing, despite my father shooting me weird looks from across the room. It actually made me like Twilight and almost want to see the movie, I kid you not — that takes some serious skill.

    I LOVE THIS POST! Can this be a weekly occurrence? Or bi-weekly? (Ambiguous, but I meant every other week, not twice a week.)

      The picture she’s put with that is SOLID GOLD. Even RPattz’s hair is being a total BAMF.

    Sorry the typewriter is just a teensy bit out of my budget for Christmas :)
