miragerock asked: well...about "Blood Meridian" and James...I've read on The finding Franco page that they were to make this one but they changed their minds and now he is propably making Cormac's "Child of God"...:P
ah, bummer… still, I’d pay to see anything written by McCarthy and directed by Franco- even if it’s not Blood Meridian. thanks for the info!
I just found out that James Franco might direct a movie based on Blood Meridian. Is this news to anyone else?
I love James Franco. I love Cormac McCarthy. So, man. If this rumor is true, I am EXCITED. Maybe I can even finagle a way to see it with my homegirl? And then we can both get married to James Franco and read books to each other over our fabulous vegan dinner table and have lots of cute babies together. #dreams
p.s. totally kidding. I’d miss my sweet husband too much. but I am most definitely not kidding about seeing my bess fran. that’s serious business.
so, I finished Blood Meridian. I know, right? It’s taken me forever to read it. and yes, I know this is a book club and I need to get my act together. it’ll happen. sometime. :)
Anyway, I can’t wait to write/talk about it as soon as I wrap my head around some of the core themes. (and detox off of all that gore. geez.)
In the meantime,
new favorite website
International Children’s Library. Have you heard of it? It houses digital versions of hundreds of gorgeously illustrated, age-appropriate children’s books. My favorite part of it is the library’s mission to provide representation for every culture and language.
I’ve already spent hours devouring books in Arabic, Korean, Italian, et al (for which the ICL provides quality English translations). Now I’m scheming of ways to expose my library classes to these rich texts….
this is from the book “the bell jar”. one of my favorite quotes.
I love lit tattoos! I only wish I could decide on the words that I want. :)
