starbox

September 30th, 2016 by Bekah Brunstetter

Just a few days ago,  in the shopping center down the street from my house, there was Not Starbucks. And now, THERE IS STARBUCKS:

It’s as if the store itself is shipped to its new home in large box, then opened by a person who yesterday ceased to be but today is a barista, and out comes cake pops and sacks of burnt beans and crate and barrel cake stands and green aprons and umbrellas and wall art, and it is assembled instantly, and you are pulled inside by your own curiosity, maybe this one is different, and inside is the hum of the walk in refrigerator, of normalcy, as if the place always has been, and never was Not.

HEY MRS. PRODUCER

September 28th, 2016 by Bekah Brunstetter

I’M TALKIN  TO YOU MRS.

Definitely didn’t make Morrison take this picture of me by my credit at all, because I’m a producer now and basically just far too busy and important and self-aware to do such childish and unproducerish and braggidocious type things.

Authenticity.

September 27th, 2016 by Bekah Brunstetter

Today, on contemporary woes, on the drive to work I happened upon a podcast in which a person was questioning whether or not they were being their authentic selves, and it’s just like, in addition to worrying about whether or not I am doing enough or enough of the right thing and am I doing it fast enough, or should I be doing it at all, I now must wonder if I am doing it AUTHENTICALLY?  DOES IT EVER EVEN END, OR IS LIFE A DEEP VAT OF QUESTIONS EACH VAGUER AND EVEN MORE TRULY UNANSWERABLE THAN THE ONE ABOVE IT?

Mangonundrum 

September 25th, 2016 by Bekah Brunstetter

We got a box of mangos  from a fruit stand, 7 for 7 bucks, and I have no idea what to do with them except walk around like a person with a bunch of mangos on their counter at home, which is to say person who feels just a little bit better than everyone else, but is quite confused as to Why.

the urge

September 24th, 2016 by Bekah Brunstetter

Is anyone else sometimes completely overcome by an aggressive need to time travel back to when there was no such thing as phones that lived in our pockets and so we left our houses free of every person we know, and headed to meet the one person we’ve agreed to see, and just spent that agreed upon, unchanged time with that one person? But that is no longer so, and so you are then overcome by an overwhelming sadness that that purity of time spent can no longer be? So what then follows is a need to do violent things our phones, throw them into traffic / drop them off bridges / run them over with cars just so they’ll no longer be, and then lastly, the last part, the yearning to have the part of your brain that makes one reach for their phone, check it obsessively, search for something new that never satisfies, surgically removed? YES? ALL OF US FEEL OF THIS THING?  GOOD TO KNOW.
