Welcome old sport!
Welcome to all things Great Gatsby: chances to explore, chances to learn, and chances to win.
What's all this about? Read the intro to Summer of Gatsby here...
Whether you've read TGG in high school and are revisiting it or rediscovering it for the first time, enjoy our discussion. And warning--HEREIN BE SPOILERS!
So pull up some bootleg hooch, put on your Charleston shoes and we'll get going.
Today is a lighter look, and while I'm sure we can all go to spark notes and talk about all the deep things with Gatsby, here's the plot in a nutshell.
While this isn't my favorite Gatsby spoof/ cartoon/ rendering, I do love Jordan's manic face when she says: JUST DO IT! And dude, why do so many of them have an English accent. Except the mechanic, who is definitely Southern. I guess they figure if someone's brandishing a gun it would be someone from the South. Very stereotypical (and yet, as a Southerner, I must confess, somewhat true...)
My favorite is when Jordan is introduced and there's a big SYMBOLISM floating up there....
