Hey you know that crazy spinster who wears the same clothes every day? That’s actually Miss Havisham from Great Expectations and it’s her wedding dress. Once jilted and swindled out of her fortune by the man she loved, she grew into a bitter old woman. She raised Estella to be distrustful of men and to manipulate them. When Pip, the protaginist, came into her midst, she had Estella test her tricks on him. She also only wore one shoe, which I probably could’ve photoshopped above but IDGAF.

Phoebe Caulfield is one of the more underappreciated characters in literature. Although Catcher in the Rye focuses on the exploits and development of Holden, much of his character is based on his relationship with his younger sister. In fact, his entire fantasy about catching children “in the rye” is centered around his desire to protect her and childlike innocence in general. Phoebe, when contrasted with her older brother, is far more mature than he and sees him as an idealistic and misguided young adult. Eventually, Holden learns from her judgement of him as he reluctantly grapples with adulthood. They’re both well-born kids of Manhattan, but the strike me as cooler than your average Dalton or Spence student. Phoebe definitely would’ve grown up to run shit, and been more into The Bell Jar than Gossip Girl. In conclusion, the Caulfields dominate.

Rise and shine kiddos. For the past few weeks, I’ve been working on this video. Last night, after 6 straight episodes of Game of Thrones, I finally finished. I took a few of my favorite fall 2012 collections and animated up right nice. They’re not necessarily my top collections from all over but they’re all great. Press play, hope you like it.

Dominique Francon is the heroine of The Fountainhead and seems to be the only woman in the world made for the protagonist and architect Howard Roark. Likewise, he seems to be the only man for her. You know, it’s funny, both Howard and Dominique have this contempt for people around them. They feel like nobody measures up to their own personal standards of design or of life. Yet somehow, they’re both lovable. Dominique is admirable because she realizes that in life she has nobody to answer to but herself and doesn’t have to worry about how others value or judge her. Once she picks that up, she finds total and utter happiness. She’s right you know, who gives a shit?
