Wholphin is the DVD magazine associated with Dave Egger's McSweeney's, the hip publishing house responsible for The Believer, McSweeney's Quarterly Concern, and many novels and book-length works of non-fiction. McSweeney's aesthetic is hard to pin-down; in fact, maybe it's more of a sensibility, sometimes irreverent, slightly twee. At any rate, McSweeney's does good work for the cause of the printed word in 2011, so not much else need be said.

For tomorrow's screening, part of IFC Center's Stranger Than Fiction series, Wholphin curator Bret Hoff has assembled 90-minutes worth of short docs from the magazine. See: Arsy Varsy, Hoff's contender for "most cathartically wonderful and uplifting documentary short film" ever. See: How To Explain It To My Parents, a short from Arno Cohen in which the artist tries to explain art to his parents, all within the confines of a single take. See: Here Comes Greatness, a short about underground backyard wrestling that we've been trying to catch for a minute now.
