Shelves: punching-tour , reviewed Did you ever wish that Boogie Nights was a book set in the time of the fall of the Aztec empire? I find it apropos to quote the GR summary of the book to give you a basic outline of what you might expect to find "under the covers" of this novel.
This was obviously written by someone who decided not to actually read the book, but wanted to guess what it was about quotes added for emphasis : Here is the "extraordinary" story of the last and "greatest" native civilization of North America, at the "height" of its "magnificent" sic. It is a story told in the words of one of the most "robust" and memorable characters in modern fiction. His name is Mixtil--Dark Cloud.
So much is lost in translation. The best thing about this book was the woman who gave it to me. I was working in this law office with four lawyers all male and four assistants all female. I had just moved into a new house, and a woman I knew decided to throw me this "house-warming shower," which was a pretty painful experience for me but well-meaning of her.
The game she came up with like ya do for a "shower" was that everyone had to give me a book I would hate. This stressed out all the attendees those who were actually my friends because many of them are friends with me only because of books, so they felt like they had to bring a book I would actually love.
So, I worked with this one woman, who in many ways was an average, comfortable mom type. In a lot of other ways, she reminded me of a character from the Addams Family, though. She had this white streak in her black hair, which was cut into a mullet.
She also had this way of shuffling around the office that was pretty unique. You know how lego people walk by moving their whole bodies? It was kind of like that. Also, she had the Addams Family theme song as her ring tone. I never asked her about it, but I figured she made a lot of style choices based on that show. When I first met her, I honestly thought she had an accent.
At one point the other assistants and I were out to lunch, and I asked her, "So, where are you from? While I think Boogie Nights is a great movie, there are some other times and places to which I feel it might not translate well. For example, space would totally work, as would reality TV and other entertainment genres music, game shows, theater, etc.
Bill Clinton, likewise, has absolutely set us up for a political re-make.
