  1. The Interstitial was specifically clips of a 1970s instructional film for mentally disabled teenage girls called “Pink Slip” to help them understand menstruation, that is why it is so repetitive.

  2. Beowulf Jones’ story, Louisiana Kitchen, resonated on such a personal level with me- not because I’ve been traumatized by a strange man masturbating in my face, but because I’ve had to explain why I’ve been traumatized by an event that most people considered insignificant. I also enjoyed that Mr. Jones related the story in a way that was both humorous and serious. It’s as if he purposefully told the story in such a way that evoked conflicting emotions- we weren’t sure if we should laugh- which highlighted his comments on humor being subjective, and on jokes about situations that just aren’t funny.
    Simple on the surface, but filled with layers of context and meaning. Love stories like this. Thanks Mr. Jones.

  3. @Joanie, Oh I hadn’t realized there was that component to it. To my ears it just had an idiosyncratic acting and writing style I associate with old educational movies. – Kevin
