Jay Gatsby Would be Pissed

Posted by Jason Diamond

The 25-room Colonial Revival mansion built in 1902 on Long Island’s Gold Coast and  thought to be the inspiration behind a F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, has been turned into a pile of rubble so a bunch of McMansions could be built where it once stood.

I hope the ghost of Daisy Buchanan haunts the people who end up moving there.

Taking Another Stab at Gatsby

My experiences with Baz Luhrmann films:

1996: took my high school girlfriend to see Romeo + Juliet, hated the movie, and got no play.

2002: got drunk and fell asleep watching Moulin Rouge, but had “Lady Marmalade” stuck in my head for days.

Today, 2010: It was announced last month that Luhrmann acquired the rites to The Great Gatsby and I’m just now reading about this???

Tomorrow, 2010:  I will wake up the same bitter and jaded bastard that I am today, only I will have fully comprehended what I learned the day prior and will be forced to accept it.
