Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal by Zach Weinersmith for October 04, 2016
What's the most American movie ever made? That's easy. Ghostbusters. People discover that there is life beyond the pale of death. So, they start a small business and cash in. Most of that film is about buying an office, getting better clientele, fighting government regulators, and increasing your workforce. This is a film where the afterlife is proven to be real, yet there is an entire scene devoted to salary negotiation. I guess you never realize how weird culture is while you're inside it. What's the most American buck? Moby Dick. Violent man has a confusing revenge fantasy against a cheap source of oil. Holy crap.
