INFINITE JEST commentary week 6, 321-398

Eschaton! Contrasts between children and adults, maps versus territories, real versus fake, tennis academy versus Boston AA.

I have to keep it brief this week, and but so, I’ll include one of my favorite tributed to Infinite Jest, the Decemberist’s video for The Calamity Song, an homage to Eschaton.

    Love the Wes Anderson-esque quality of that video.

    Next time through IJ I may skip the narrative form of the Eschaton chapter and just watch this video over and over.

    Also, anyone want to take a stab at explaining “why” Wallace wrote Mario as such a horrifically physically deformed character? Further, thanks for kinda ruining oysters for me David Foster Wallace.
