Themed Guides to Translated Literature in 2015

Chad W. Post at Three Percent recently linked to World Literature Today's 75 Notable Translations of 2015 and went on a list-making tear to provide more structure and commentary: 7 books by women, 6 water-cooler fiction books, 6 university press books, 3 'funny' books, 4 books from underrepresented countries, and the best poetry I should read. The commentary often leads to further matters of interest, e.g. the Women in Translation Tumblr or Marianne Fritz and the translation challenges (scroll down) in her work.

Highlights from Key & Peele's incredible run

In its all-too-brief 3½ year run, Comedy Central's sketch comedy powerhouse Key & Peele burned brightly, leavening Peabody-award-winning social commentary with sublime silliness and Hollywood-quality production values, all centered on the impeccable character acting of co-stars Jordan (Peele) and Keegan-Michael (Key). By the time its end was announced, characters like the Substitute Teacher, the East/West College Bowl players, and Obama's Anger Translator had captured the popular consciousness, while skits like TeachingCenter and Negrotown deftly spotlighted our most pressing problems. With the finale airing tonight, and the dynamic duo free to tackle other projects, why not revisit the program's concentrated brilliance in the form of ~100 of their very best short bits available on the web, sorted loosely by topic.

    CONFOUND THOSE DOVER BOYS

    The Dover Boys at Pimento University is one of the cartooniest cartoons ever made. The 1942 Warner Brothers short, directed by Chuck Jones and animated by Bobe Cannon, is loosely based on the children's book series The Rover Boys. Quite visually innovative in its day, The Dover Boys probably contains the most outrageous smears and multiples of any cartoon since. [more inside]

    This "Cocktail" needed a little something...

    "Cocktails & Dreams" on Youtube. My college girlfriend loved both the 1988 Tom Cruise vehicle "Cocktail" and cocktails too much, and in retrospect the first should have been a warning of the second. The people behind "Greenboy", all Mr. Show vets and other alt-comedy types, have taken on a new project - making "Cocktail" watchable. They shortened it to 10 minutes, and added Chris Fairbanks, Greenboy himself, to every scene. It's a funny testament to the power of technology to change history. Lenin would be proud.

    People on the phone never say "good-bye" at the end of a conversation.

    Movie cliches that have been around for decades are still alive and well in 2015. Don't believe it? Check out the list and decide for yourself:
    • When men drink whiskey, it is always in a shot glass, and they always drink it in one gulp. If they are wimps, they will gasp for air, then have a coughing fit. If they are macho, they will wince briefly, flashing clenched teeth.
    • There are always carrot leaves and a loaf of french bread sticking out of every grocery bag
    • Explosions in space make noise, etc. etc. etc.

The Sneeze was an ambitious and funny blog full of insights about life, parenting, humor and also had solid reporting on gross food items that are still available in grocery stores.
