What did you guys think of this? I thought that it definitely had its good moments but also had a fair share of obnoxious moments.

Also, did anyone understand Church not made with Hands? I admittedly started it, didn't understand shit, and then went on to the next story.

You have to be a white college male to truly get it, sorry.

B-but.. I am familia. Every story was pretty breezy except for that one.

I still laugh about the little part where he screams VICTORY FOR THE FORCES OF DEMOCRATIC FREEDOM whenever he cums. I don't know any reason why, but it makes me laugh every time

I did the same thing desu. I also dropped tri-stan halfway through because i got the point and the style was really grating. Everything else was good tho

The bathroom attendant story was a great balance of funny/sad.

As for the men, he is hiding behind irony, doing exactly what he professed to deride.

How was he hiding behind irony? Though there was an overt fear of pretentiousness throughout the book and a self-consciousness that got irritating at times, not many of the interviews were what I would call "ironic." And even if they had an ironic tone, Wallace never professed to be in agreement with what they were saying.
