trailer for Fellini’s 8 1/2
I like a Girl Who Reads
On Tuesday, December 3rd, the ECC Literary Circle will close out the term on an international note. At 6pm, we’ll converge at Paciugo for gelato before heading to the 7:30pm showing of Fellini’s classic film, 8 1/2 at the Magnolia (both places are in the West Village off Lemmon and 75). Come for one or both events. You are responsible* for your own travel, tickets, and gelato - but know that there is a convenient CityPlace DART station near the West Village. More info about the Magnolia (showtimes, ticket prices, etc.)can be found here.
*If you’re just dying to go, but can’t fit a movie ticket into your budget, let Ms. Schulze know, and she’ll try to work something out with you.
Beauty is terror. Whatever we call beautiful, we quiver before it

Thirty days and nights of literary abandon
“Listen. I don’t like to preach, but here’s some advice. You’ll meet a lot of jerks in life. If they hurt you, remember it’s because they’re stupid. Don’t react to their cruelty. There’s nothing worse than bitterness and revenge. Keep your dignity and be true to yourself.” - Marjane Satrapi, Persepolis

So long as you write it away regularly nothing can really hurt you.
