Thinking today about how it won’t be long before we’ll be able to inject media, so consume the entirety of a writer’s work in one sitting. This will likely just lead to people binge watching The Sopranos all at once, but it also got me to thinking about what will the difference be? Just injecting all of Cormac McCarthy or Margaret Atwood, without having to move through each page physically. I don’t know, maybe I’m in a fucked up mood but I’m starting to get to this feeling that smart people are just as dumb as dumb people, but in ways that aren’t as culturally obvious, although also pretty easy to tell. I imagine this was what my step-grandfather used to be talking about with his voicebox thing because of throat cancer when he said somebody didn’t have no sense, and called them “no count”. I think I’m gonna tattoo NO COUNT on my wrist tonight.
