    Let the Toronto presales begin

  2. Edward Wilson says:

    Is that supposed to be a 40 oz. or something? Cause it looks like a liter of Diet Coke…

  3. David Poland says:

    That would be 2 liters of soda, EW.

  4. krazyeyes says:

    The blurring on the Diet Coke label is very distracting plus i’m not sure I get making the poster look like a book cover.

  5. Edward Wilson says:

    I don’t drink soda. I wouldn’t know these things.

  6. anghus says:

    why is one 2 liter soda bottle (the one in her hand) the old rounded style and the one on the night stand the newer old-school coke bottle shaped plastic bottle.

    this is weird.

  7. hcat says:

    The book cover is a little too cutesy but I do like the image. All the caffine containers surrounding a bottle of Grey Goose give the impression that she crossed that age where severe hangovers are still bearable yet she is not yet giving up the lifestyle.

  8. Paul MD (Stella's Boy) says:

    Jennifer’s Body > Juno. Here’s hoping Young Adult > Jennifer’s Body.

  9. Don R. Lewis says:

    The book cover is because the main character is either a person who gained popularity for writing teen fiction for girls or was a popular teen fiction writer as a teen, I can’t remember which it was.

  10. palmtree says:

    The term “young adult” is a lit genre, and so the parody book cover is a brilliant marketing design.

Would you consider yourself a good person?
I would consider myself … decent as I got older. When I was younger I was less sensitive, in my 20s. But as I got older and began to see how difficult life was for everybody, I had more compassion for other people. I tried to act nicer, more decent, more honorable. I couldn’t always do it. When I was in my 20s, even in my early 30s, I didn’t care about other people that much. I was selfish and I was ambitious and insensitive to the women that I dated. Not cruel or nasty, but not sufficiently sensitive.
You viewed women as temporary fixtures?
Yes, temporary, but as I got older and they were humans suffering like I was … I changed. I learned empathy over the years.
~ Woody Allen To Sam Fragoso For NPR

“To my mind, this embracing of what were unambiguously children’s characters at their mid-20th century inception seems to indicate a retreat from the admittedly overwhelming complexities of modern existence. It looks to me very much like a significant section of the public, having given up on attempting to understand the reality they are actually living in, have instead reasoned that they might at least be able to comprehend the sprawling, meaningless, but at-least-still-finite ‘universes’ presented by DC or Marvel Comics. I would also observe that it is, potentially, culturally catastrophic to have the ephemera of a previous century squatting possessively on the cultural stage and refusing to allow this surely unprecedented era to develop a culture of its own, relevant and sufficient to its times.”
~ “Watchmen”‘s Alan Moore At His Alan Moore-iest
