A journalist makes nice with Papa Hem, via Tahrir Square and Old Havana
Hemingway wrote a few good books before he became a cartoon, and I own a couple of them. I stole my copy of The Sun Also Rises from my father, which he got during his school days. It’s the Scribner’s printing from 1954, hardbound and dark blue. I’ve always liked the way it feels in my hands, but not always the writing. The preening masculinity, the anti-Semitism. Hemingway’s postured simplicity.
None of it seems like something you’d want to keep alive, at least for a reader from my generation, but here he is anyway. 113 years after his birth, Hemingway’s legacy continues to survive by continuing to change, by which I mean we continue to find different things we want from him.
Celebrate Indiana Jones on the biggest damn screen there is!
Not gaming related, (but there has been many fantastic Indy games, might I recommend the SNES classic Indiana Jones Greatest Adventures) Indiana Jones is coming back to the big screen to celebrate the release of Raiders of the Lost Ark on Blu-ray, to Imax screens for a limited time. Expect details of the most joyous occasion to go to the movies this Fall next week.
