FYI, I’m going to be in Pittsburgh for the next few days, watching Saalon film a movie. I’m looking forward to it immensely. In any event, I’ll be driving back Monday night.
I’m three chapters into Harry Knowles’ Ain’t It Cool (the book), and I’m happy to report that it’s not just good, it’s very good. When Harry has an editor to correct his spelling, he’s a tremendous writer. The book has been mainly a thoroughly entertaining biography up to this point, while the rest of the book appears to be more of a discussion about film culture.
One of the things I love about Harry is that he’s inspirational. After reading a couple chapters of this, I want to go out and make something of myself.
