Upon rereading the book recently, I took special note of Gatsby’s spending habits. He’s described as a wealthy man, but he’s still living a very tony lifestyle for someone who made most of his money bootlegging. One over-the-top party, yes. But an over-the-top party every weekend? Even hedge-funders don’t live like that.
So I pulled every nugget from The Great Gatsby related to Gatsby’s personal wealth and income, and every passage that detailed his spending, and — with the help of some experts — tried to re-create a historical ledger that might have shown the state of Jay Gatsby’s fortune, if he had been a real person and not a figment of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s imagination. It turns out that, far from accumulating vast stores of wealth, Jay Gatsby might have been spending beyond his means.
Saucy Cooking and Good News
I’ve been cooking a lot lately, but I haven’t really been doing a great job of documenting what I’m…
You can thank Artist Drachea Rannak for these awesome pop culture mashups.
This is AWESOME!! I don’t like some of the girls being barefoot. And I love Jasmines! Even with her genie leggings, she’s sooo cute!
Thank you New Girl, for getting this song in my head. Totally on repeat tonight. *dances alone in my room*
Daft Punk - Get Lucky ft. Pharrell Williams
On repeat. I love this song sooo much! I literally cannot stop dancing…
Plus, Pharrell is on this track. I can’t not love a song he’s singing.
