Who kill Sy Abelmon?

A serious mon.

James, Marlon James aka him the hat fit

James, Marlon James aka him the hat fit. No, r’asscloth: who the cap fit

edit to add: I loves ABHO7K the way Sy loves Larry:

and1: I think it would be funny for Marlon James, a Jamaican English professor and novelist (“A Brief History of Seven Killings”) at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, U.S.A. to next write about Jewish gangsters, maybe based in St. Paul, maybe a parody of Coen Brother’s “A Serious Man” the movie. The photo of me, above, is taken at a bowling alley in St. Paul, in 2009, at my cousin’s Bar Mitzvah, on a day I also viewed “ASM” at a local cinema and heard rock music outdoors at Macalester. Meanwhile, Plastic Alto — Leland Stanford meets Ornette Coleman — has reached 1,300 chapters, 500,000 words but only 50,000 readers / viewers, people stumbling by. I sent a version of this, or two versions actually, to the email address on his page.

andand: two weeks later, I just read the first 27 lines of Marlon James essay in The New York Sunday Times Sunday Magazine — one graph — and have to amend the above: It would be funny if Marlon James and Bob Mould (a Mac alum) combine to write a musical treatment of a gay black West Indian version of “A Serious Man” based on Coens. Playing up the Mentaculus and Gangster themes. A fella can dream can’t he. Or Ethiopian, I think there are more Ethiopian than Jamaicans in Twin Cities, no? Did I actually send this to the author?
