It reminded me of one of those Andrew Bujalski movies. I like those. My sister read this before I did. She borrowed it from me on a plane ride (two planes) and finished it in one day. She went to the same college as Tao Lin, and I guess that's how she knew about him. She liked the book. She said, "It's very 'you'." I understood. I finally got around to reading it this week. I thought it was funny. I don't know if I would say it's "about boredom", but maybe it is. I don't know. It's like a documentary following a person around and catching mostly quiet moments, with people not saying much. Or, like I said, one of those Andrew Bujalski movies. And with that this post comes full circle, yay. Tao is doing a grassroots promotional campaign involving people blogging about the book, but this isn't part of that. It's not long enough (this post, I mean), and I have his other books (which he is giving away to participants) already. I'm just here to promote literacy in America.
