Random thought

The number of movies I’ve seen based on Philip K. Dick books makes it difficult to find an unsullied PKD reading experience.

On the plus side, the A Scanner Darkly movie made little sense to me, so maybe that’s the way to go.

I heard Obama gave a speech at Notre Dame. How’d that go?

I’m going on vacation tomorrow to the land of the wood paneled K-Mart. I will hopefully have a report on the continuing struggle of the immigrant proletariat against the bourgeoisie’s corrupt tourist economy.

Needless to say, serious thoughts are scarce.

    have you read ubik? that’s next on my list. the man in the high castle was pretty great.

    i thought a scanner darkly made perfect sense, and i understand it’s quite faithful to the book

    I’ve just read some of his short stories. Ubik looks interesting.

    I don’t know what it was about A Scanner Darkly. It wasn’t bad, I just seemed to miss the point.

    I haven’t read a whole lot of PKD but I found A Scanner Darkly to be really good.. but the movie was just confusing and not very good.
