I am still in process of reading. Binge watching House of Cards got in the way.

Jenn, I will not read your review until I am done with the book! But I am looking forward to it!

cheers for the update on amazon.

yeah, that video man... there were more of Kim's reactions, I was like..whaat? twitter remark, or feminism remark (knife)....bit...I don't know (maybe I got older and it doesn't sound so cool to me anymore). she seemed bit nervous at times, looking for an answer, so she said, what she said , still trying keeping it cool, end up sounding it, ahhh, can't really find the right words to express it in english. sorry.

too cheesy?

in the end she was probably sarcastic anyway..

and don't get me wrong, still big respect! just overall feeling of that QaA vid.

so is she going out with astronomy guy?

Ah.. The thing about that video.. It's a bit too 48 minutes long for my liking. Maybe I'll get around to watching it some day but I just binged on the goddamn book recently plus I think you're right, she's a better writer than public speaker.
If anyone wants to summarize the video in a TLDR format, by all means feel free goddamnit.

she was good and funny and just herself. she wasn't really criticizing twitter per se-- just the spending of too much time on it. it was a pretty casual thing, not some glorious formal prepared speech to the masses, just an armchair conversation with someone you already know is shy and hypersensitive. i liked her a lot in it.

the video doesn't really need to be "watched" in that the frame of the image remains pretty much the same-- unless you're interested in the interviewer's gesticulations. no fucking way i kept my eyes on the screen the whole time. you can just watch the first minute and then put it on the backround and listen to the rest. i did that while doing other computer tasks i can't remember right now. or you can convert it here: http://www.youtube-mp3.org

what's there to vacillate about? i'm asking objectively-- i.e., do you say this from a sense of modesty? or do you really have problems with it, and if so, what are they? i'd rather hijack the thread talking about your review than fending off sway's fool rants! (i mean, only if you want). yes?

I'm actually happy with it. Even proud. I put my foot down and I don't see how I could have served my feelings on the book any better. Ignore my silly self.

Jenn, about the kim being jaded about new york, its an LA thing. All of us here more or less have a "meh" vibe about NYC and also we more or less resent your California is insecure comments if anything possibly quite the opposite, we may be smugly and over confidentally secure in ourselves. Also California/LA likes sprawl, NYC like congestion and i dare say it explains our radically different personalities as cities.. Cali spreads out and absorbs gradually whereas NYC has to draw everything inward

I loved jenntheben's review.. i agree with her completely about not needing to have ever known all the marital drama between kim and thurston but i get why it was important for kim to write about because in a way their relationship was crucial to understanding their art together in SY and just as important then is understanding the dynamics of how that relationship ended which subsequently explains the demise of the band
Maybe we all never realized just how much all the music was about themselves?
