The Millions : Car Crush: Why American Writers and Artists Can’t Stop Loving the Automobile

The Millions : Car Crush: Why American Writers and Artists Can’t Stop Loving the Automobile | Books, Photo, Video and Film | Scoop.it
ListsCar Crush: Why American Writers and Artists Can’t Stop Loving the AutomobileBy Bill Morris posted at 12:00 pm on August 4, 2015 3

Two debut novels – one freshly published, the other on its way to becoming a classic – have reminded me that for the past century American writers and artists have been obsessed with that shimmering, sexy, liberating, lethal contraption known as the automobile.  Small wonder.  Is there a more potent metaphor for American restlessness, for the American hunger for status and sex, for the American tendency to wind up, broken and bloody, in a ditch?

In a thesis written in 2007, a doctoral candidate named Shelby Smoak neatly summed up the role of the automobile in American fiction as a way for characters to experience “violence, sacredness and consumption.”  R

Japanese Photographer Spends 5 Years Creating Incredible Mini-Dioramas Every Day - DIY Photography | Books, Photo, Video and Film | Scoop.it
I love miniature photography, especially when it’s as creative as Tatsuya Tanaka’s. The way the photographer can look at single piece of pasta and think “water slide!” or a dish sponge and think “rock climbing!”, it’s such an outside-the-box way of looking at the small, everyday objects most of us don’t pay much more attention [...]

The Victorian Hugos: 1893 Was to Books What 1977 Was to Movies

The Victorian Hugos: 1893 Was to Books What 1977 Was to Movies | Books, Photo, Video and Film | Scoop.it
Science fiction books in 1893 are where science fiction film was in 1977. In both cases, the genre was... perhaps “in the doldrums” is too harsh a judgment. Certainly, enough significant work had appeared before 1893 and 1977 that one could, in those years, speak of the science fiction genre, in both media, as a discrete entity. Indeed, as I hope I’ve shown in these articles, all through the late Victorian era there was enough science fiction and fantasy and horror to fill an awards ballot, even though fantasy and horror were undoubtedly the stronger genres among the fantastic. And before 1977, science fiction film had had the banner year of 1968 (Night of the Living Dead, Planet of the Apes, 2001).
