Seconding t-shirt envy - basically this means I need to finish the book right quick so I can stop feeling bad about spoiling things for myself. So far it's just been little details, but then again it is the revelation of exactly those little details that makes reading the book so enjoyable.

Not the Escaton, but here's an Enfield shirt.

Cool. But No Choosy Mothers or Snout t-shirt?

What's up with that?

You mean the original wasn't painfully meta enough already? I mean the posters are cool, but really. I thought the advent of the Pale King would at least make the internet move on from the infinite Infinte Jest tooing and frooing.

Clearly it should be "toing and froing."

Quite right. But I will take that comment as tacit agreement with my point.

Is anyone else not into this? A lot of them feel very, uh, Photoshop-y? Underdesigned or something. But that Eschaton tee is great

Just a great idea, well executed. Hearts.

GilloD: Agreed. I want to like this very much, and a few of the movie posters are excellent, but overall some of the design is just lacking.

I'm doing a webcomic now based on books; a few weeks ago, I did back-to-back Wallace strips. One was my illustrated guide to subsidized time; the other was my reaction to The Pale King.

I don't know if I'll be doing any more Wallace stuff, at least for a while. it's weird, it's kind of hard to come up with original joke angles, since part of the Wallace approach is to have anticpated and included every possible joke in the text already...

This reminds me of a book review Borges once did for a book that did not exist. Fascinating review, who would not want the book to get a better understanding of the review? I wonder if any web site does that -- if not, somebody should...
