my first appointment didn't come so i wrote an entry.
maybe i should say what these are? i have been watching
dark shadows (on episode #114) and i write
while watching, taking notes on what the characters
are doing, what they say, what they wear, the mistakes that
happen, etc. and then i make texts out of these notes;
they're called 'episodes' but they don't correspond to
the actual episodes; in one of my episodes there might
be 7 episodes of the tv show, and 'darling'
'duchess' and 'kitten' don't correspond
to any particular character on the show, they're sort
of amalgamations of various things different characters say
and do on the show. i add things to
the notes, from my own life, notes i take from class &
reading, and i have some books i have been reading to help
me think about the medium. here's what i've been reading:
