Commemorating today's release of Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby," this posting of the Spells session - which is something like drinking night light and feeling just how fucked up it's able to make you - is accompanied by a passage from F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel.

"Yet high over the city our line of yellow windows must have contributed their share of human secrecy to the casual watcher in the darkening streets, and I was him too, looking up and wondering. I was within and without, simultaneously enchanted and repelled by the inexhaustible variety of life."
