Today’s topic: works of art which raise hard questions, only to offer disappointingly easy answers. It is not entirely about Ernest Gaines, though it may seem that way at first.
Jaxxie Glam’s been threatening to put together a Jaxxon-based version of Gawker/Catoptric 3.0 for some time; you’d see her at parties, eyes kitten-closed, Arcade Fire alex-ing in the background, a tumbler of Sprite + vodka in one hand, a Coors Lite in the other, proclaiming that it would soon debut.
Well, it has! With a rotating cast of characters just so fine they make a Robert Altman movie look like a high school play, the Glam Menagerie is now live and . . . well, even at 9:20 in the morning, probably a bit drunk. Go check it out! Yours truly will occasionally post drunken screeds + scrawls.
