Unrequired Reading: December 3, 2010

It’s our Hanukkah edition of Unrequired Reading! Lots of Jewish posts for you to check out!

Jewp it up!

Zarkov, tell me more about this man, Jewdini.

* * *

Everyone farts. Even Jews.

* * *

Jewcheology! (with the added bonus of the line, “As Eilat Mazar says with palpable satisfaction, ‘This is the end of Finkelstein’s school.'”)

Jew had to be there. (Seriously, this story about the convertito of San Nicandro is mind-blowing.)

* * *

Maybe you were expecting Jewmanji! next, but all you get is the quantity of Four Loko it takes to kill someone.

* * *

Washington, D.C.: Hollywood for ugly people! Also, not a fertile site for the novel? (Also, Christopher Hitchens discovered that he’s Jewish, so this counts as part of this week’s theme.)

* * *

Keith Richards on . . . early recording technology’s role in the development of jazz and blues? He can think? (Okay, he’s not Jewish at all.)

* * *

The most boring day in history.

* * *

Also, you might spill your drink?

After you read this piece on adapting The Great Gatsby, you oughtta listen to this Kurt Andersen/Studio-360 podcast about Fitzgerald and his great novel. It’s about 50 minutes long, but there’s plenty of good stuff in it. (Also, maybe Gatsby was Jewish?)

Don’t give me crap about the clothes, hair and art styles. It was 1987, okay?
