Also, the book the movie was based on is "The Club Dumas" by Arturo Perez-Reverte. Excellent read along with "the Flanders Panel." His work faded after those.


I need to read up on Bookcore as I suspect that's how I've been dressing casually my whole life.
If you read DWW's article, you're all caught up, seeing as he just invented it.

Can't access it from work apparently. Will read it tonight.

I wonder if dirty books stores are still around
because in there one would presumably encounter hardcore bookcore
Oh definitely. Here are a few that I visit: Station North Books / Viva Books / Red Emmas (which has 3 other floors of books in a separate part of the building, but this is the coffee shop side of things which is much cleaner - also, they're employee owned).

Fun fact, that was a "mumblecore" movie. The characters speak like normal people -- which is to say, they mumble, interrupt each other, stutter, repeat themselves -- which, with good directing, ends up feeling super natural.

I think good bookcore does that too. It makes me think... this person isn't following rules, this person is just



Woody Allen made some cool movies, but maybe he's not the best person to celebrate these days.
Almost everyone in Hollywood is a scumbag. We celebrate tons of horrible people. Sean Penn irrumated Madonna after repeatedly hitting her with a baseball bat. He's won several oscars.

Incidentally, Woody Allen reminds me of the East coat equivalent of this: Old upper West siders who go to Zabars.

I loved the Bookcore article because it so perfectly captures the lifestyle I've slowly gravitated towards over the last few years. Something about aimlessly browsing a dusty old bookstore (my go-to in Chicago is Myopic) with a tote bag under your arm and no plans for the rest of the day is such a special feeling.

Okay, yeah, that was more than a bit of a reach. A bit schlubby, a bit Absent-Minded Professor, more than a bit "clothes of any kind in earth tones," interesting glasses, kind of how I dress on weekends, actually.

Fun read, though. Well done. Cheers!

None of this is justifiiable.

Fun fact, the east coast has bookstores too. A lot of them. I would daresay that the first bookstore you might think of when you see this article is the Strand in NYC.

I have frequently been to strand. Strand doesn't draw a bookcore crowd.
