TODAY on TV eats my brain and I like it – Craig said something about how a certain thing that happened in the room was the second beat of a three beat story that’s been happening in his life. I’ve noticed my brain starting to work this way – as I think about my own behavior and choices, my brain is starting to interpret them as story beats, or episode archs, like ‘Bekah has a three episode arch in which she convinces herself that she can learn about the entire world, apropros of nothing, just by watching documentaries on Netlfix, but realizes that this only gives her nightmares.’ Etc. It’s kind of fun to feel like you’re currently in the middle of a story, and that by it’s conclusion, you will have learned something. And then there will be a Proactiv commericial.
