Prodnose: Literature recasts the world in an intimate and productively strange light. Prose can endow us with startling power ....

Myself: I know that you're my alter ego with all that entails, but can't you just lighten up for five minutes? We should definitely go and see Sucker Punch this weekend. It's totally got like all these warrior babes with bare skills.

Prodnose: "Review: ‘Sucker Punch’ An Overstuffed, Deadening & Boring Journey Into A Zack Snyder Wet Dream."

Myself: You're saying that as if it's a bad thing. I'll throw you a bone though Darryl Louise Chastain, the flawed avatar and preterite goddess of Pynchon's Vineland, she was a Ninja. Am I right? I am.

Prodnose: So it may be cultural?

Myself: If Berressem's Lacanian examination of Pynchon's aesthetic strategies are applicable to Snyder it could well be, yes.

Prodnose: OK

Myself: Fasten your seatbelts.
