I was a teenager in the mid-to-late-90s, and I’m thinking now about how there were three pieces of culture that came out then that came to define my thinking about what culture should be like: Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction (1994), David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest (1996) and Radiohead’s OK Computer (1997).
I think all of these works were part of a similar cultural zeitgeist that looked backwards as well as forwards, high as well as low, and embraced cleverness as high value proposition.

It’s not a bad idea. Perhaps a release party for Eruditorum Volume 5. Anyone have suggestions where to hold such a shindig?
Forbidden Planet, The Strand, Midtown Comics.
These seem perhaps bigger than is entirely sensible. I mean, they’re not stores that stock Eruditorum in the first place. I was thinking something more casual/restauranty. Wasn’t there a bar that did a big party for Day of the Doctor? That might be sane.
That’s The Way Station bar in Brooklyn, which has a TARDIS bathroom. Most logical choice for such an event. I know the owner if you want me to contact him.
