Film Series: Inherent Vice

2014. USA. Dir: Paul Thomas Anderson. With Joaquin Phoenix. 148 min. 

On a case for his ex-girlfriend, a weed-addled private eye stumbles upon a bizarre underground network of neo-Nazis, dentists, heroin, and a very mysterious boat. In this semi-coherent, wildly entertaining rendering of 1970 L.A., Anderson bravely goes where no director has gone before: into the feverishly “un- adaptable” world of Thomas Pynchon.

The 48 Hour Magazine Project Has Begun

Amy Mattox ’17 sends this message through the digital airwaves:

The theme of this year’s 48 hour magazine is FORTUNE. We’re thinking blind luck, superstition, the stock market, gambling, risks, classism, fortune cookies, horoscopes, chris brown, chance, O Fortuna, tarot, the oracle at delphi, lucky charms, coincidence, misfortune, etc.
From now until MIDNIGHT, please send any responses to FORTUNE to with your full name and class year.
We want to see your .poems, drawings, paintings, collages, personal essays, photo essays, found object, wild assemblages, deconstructive critiques, sculptures, science experiments, fiction, album reviews, comix, knock knock jokes, haiku, soundbites, genre-defiant mud, exposé reporting, video art, interviews, animation, songs, podcast materials, etc – make it fast, make it quick, make it in 12 hours or four minutes.
We’ll be tabling in Usdan from noon till 8, asking the serious and incisive questions about FORTUNE you’ve all been waiting for.
Some final words of wisdom:
Fortune is a horse with four white feet
& more importantly:: The cleanly are comfortable, the dirty are lucky.
god speed + good luck
