I think this is the third time I’ve posted about Daisy Buchanan, but the hubub about the upcoming movie put me in the mood to look at The Great Gatsby. Daisy is married to Tom Buchanan and is in love with Jay Gatsby, commonly known to all American High School Students as The Great Gatsby. And certainly, after the movie comes out, they’ll all know him as Leonardo DiCaprio. Shame. At the climax of the book, shit gets out of hand and Daisy basically ruins as many lives as she can in one night. Stupid Daisy, you used to be cool.

Similar stuff and crap:
In a recent discussion at the office, we were going over our favorite books from high school. All the usuals made their appearances, Catcher in the Rye, Pride and Prejudice, A Separate Peace, Of Mice and Men and of course The Great Gatsby. I’ve posted Jay Gatsby before and Daisy twice but thought I’d take another look with the new collections. The brief rundown is—Gatsby is rich and has a crazy love affair with Daisy, but Daisy is a greedy trollop who only cares about status. Gatsby dies and despite their love for each other, that bitch doesn’t even show up to his funeral. Good god woman, have some respect. In the crazy Jazz age of East and West Egg, there were some great parties and plenty of money floating around, so you’d best believe Gatsby had some good style or…steez.
