The best way, (IMHO anyway) to read IJ is via an electronic device where the notes are hyperlinked and the dictionary is a click away. ✨

“When you start repeating yourself, it gets boring for everybody.” Jason Segel built a career out of deploying his sheepish countenance and aw-shucks manner to maximum comic effect. When news first broke that he would be playing David Foster Wallace in “The End of the Tour,” many Wallace fans thought it was a stunt. Wallace, who shot to literary fame for the voluminous 1996 novel #InfiniteJest, and later hanged himself, was known for his hyper-intricate fiction and nonfiction. But in January, the film had its premiere at @sundanceinstitute and the actor’s performance left the packed theater breathless. @chadbatka photographed #JasonSegel at the @boweryhotel in New York. #Sundance

DAY100 / THEEND. Thank you to all who read and followed along with me as I documented a very small portion of this infamous novel I find so intriguing. I finished reading the book on 7/16 and am still processing. More info coming this week about framed quotes from this project. #100dayproject #100daysofinfinitejest #infinitejest #davidfosterwallace

Oh my god. Bone Broth. I'm hooked. I made mine with a little rosemary, cumin, lemon and celery. High in fat and so soulful. A must try!

"Yo no soy de los que se odian. No soy del tipo que dicen 'Soy una mierda y el mundo estaría mejor sin mi presencia' pero al mismo tiempo se imaginan lo que dirá todo el mundo en su funeral. He conocido gente así en los psiquiátricos. Gente que dice 'Pobre de mí, me detesto, castigadme, pero no dejéis de asistir a mi funeral'. Luego te muestran una foto en color de su gato muerto. No es más que puta autocompasión. Una pura mierda. Yo no tenía ninguna inquina especial. No fracasé en ningún examen ni me abandonó nadie. [...] Yo no me odio. Sólo no quería jugar más, eso es todo" (Año de la ropa interior para adultos Depend, David Foster Wallace).

The books people give you tell you a lot about them and about how they perceive you. 😊

No other book has stuck with me quite like this one (although possibly just because it takes so long to read) #infinitejest

There's something bittersweet about David Foster Wallace spending part of the 90's writing a novel that describes perfectly how we're going to entertain ourselves to death in 2017... #portrait #pencildrawing #pencilart #pencil #davidfosterwallace #infinitejest #novel #artist #portraitart #writer #halo #doodling #entertainment #death

And that's a wrap! I have more thoughts about this book than anyone wants to read in an Instagram caption (possibly more than anyone wants to read, period), but I wrote 'em all down on Goodreads, if you're curious. #infinitejest #dfw #readinggoals #missionaccomplished #iaminhere #kertwang

Ruminating on DFW: "If you've still got a nation of people sitting of front of screens, pretending, interacting with images rather than each other, feeling lonely and so needing more and more images you’re
going to have the same basic problem. And the better the images get, the more tempting it’s going to be to interact with images rather than other people. And I think the emptier it’s going to get."

*New In* This is a very special painting by Geoffrey Key, its a huge painting which features in the wonderful Judith O'Leary 'Infinite Jest' Book.(The Book is also available in the Gallery)
