Because all I want to do is sit around and watch The Red Detachment of Women on YouTube.

I would post the whole thing here if I thought you all would watch it.

I am really trying not to make this blog a long list of youtube videos.

It’s just, I really love youtube videos.

Really really love them.

And I’m also really trying to make this one go viral.

There’s only a few more days to make it happen, because it’s Christmas-themed.

Go forth and forward people!

Damn if it isn’t the saddest book I’ve ever read – and  genuinely one of the best. Edith Wharton can be viciously funny in that oh-so-awesome Victorian way. See descriptions of Carry Fisher and young Silverton below:

 “She looked down the long table, studying its occupants one by one, from Gus Trenor, with his heavy carnivorous head sunk between his shoulders, as he preyed on a jellied plover, to his wife, at the opposite end of the long bank of orchids, suggestive, with her glaring good-looks, of a jeweller’s window lit by electricity. And between the two, what a long stretch of vacuity! How dreary and trivial these people were! Lily reviewed them with a scornful impatience: Carry Fisher, with her shoulders, her eyes, her divorces, her general air of embodying a “spicy paragraph”; young Silverton, who had meant to live on proof-reading and write an epic, and who now lived on his friends and had become critical of truffles; Alice Wetherall, an animated visiting-list, whose most fervid convictions turned on the wording of invitations and the engraving of dinner-cards; Wetherall, with his perpetual nervous nod of acquiescence, his air of agreeing with people before he knew what they were saying; Jack Stepney, with his confident smile and anxious eyes, half way between the sheriff and an heiress; Gwen Van Osburgh, with all the guileless confidence of a young girl who has always been told that there is no one richer than her father.”

House of Mirth, Chapter 5

Which reminds me – this hipster Ethan Frome adaptation-also funny! Watch it!
