I have yet to read this book, and so cannot provide any context on my own. It sounds very odd, according to Wikipedia: The plot partially revolves around the missing master copy of a film cartridge, titled Infinite Jest and referred to in the novel as "the Entertainment" or "the samizdat". The film, so entertaining to its viewers that they lose all interest in anything other than viewing it and thus eventually die, was James O. Incandenza's final work.
This one sober biker that can't be much older than Gately and is nearly Gately?s size - Though with a really small head and a tapered jaw that makes him look kind of like a handsome mantis - as they're massed around the door he brings a car-length chopper up alongside Gately. Says it was good to hear him. Shakes his hand in a complex way of Niggers and Harleyheads. He introduces his name as Robert F., though on the lapel of his leather vest it says BOB DEATH.
He's switched to menthol's at four months clean because he couldn't stand them and the only people he knew that smoked them were Niggers and he'd figured that if menthol's were the only gaspers he let himself smoke he'd be more likely to quit.
Matty looked up from the roll he was dipping in the soup and saw two underweight interracial girls moving across the window, one a nigger, neither even looking at the shit everyone's stepping around; and then a few seconds behind them Poor Tony Krouse...
As in the .44 Item Gately was plugged with's whereabouts are missing, Thrust says. The last resident to depose seeing it was Green, who says he took it away from the Nuck the nigger girls stomped, whereupon he, Green, says he dropped it on the lawn. Whereupon it liked vanished from legal view.
Because the Nuck with the plaid hat with the ear-flaps and the missing alleged Item had expired on the spot from a spike heel through the right eye, as he was getting the shit stomped out of him as only female niggers can stop, and everything like that, and Yolanda Willis had very shrewdly left the show and spike heel right there protruding from the guy's map with her toe-prints all over its inside - meaning presumably the shoe's - so producing the Item was going to be in her strong legal interests too. As well, as Thrust analyzes the legal landscape.
Late Friday P.M., he recollected, he's set off with hard currency to the billiard establishment where the niggers that sold distilled Ball jars to his late Daddy was at, getting st to '"lay up drunk as a cock on jimson."'
He smoked his first duBois at age nine, a hard little needle-thin joint bought off jr.-high niggers and smoked with three other grade-school football players in a vacant summer cottage one had the key to, watching broadcast-televised niggers run amok in flaming L. A. CA after some Finest got home-movied crewing on a nigger in the worst way.
