Flying on the wings of a dove.
To watch this show, one needs to appreciate the theory that forms the basis for its storytelling conceit. Forming the basis of the thesis I am currently working on at Fretwell Tech U., I have grown to marvel at the intense allegorical sinews that support the five minutes of short storytelling.

The show begins and ends, for example, the same way each time. This repetition serves to reflect the banality of the post-modern soul, while at the same time reflecting its kineticism, through dynamic visual juxtapositions: colour and light fuse with motion to render the viewer helplessly enamoured with the final product.

Zeugma, asyndeton and anaphora are used to elucidate the complexity of the 90s soul. Consciousness is explored, and yet never fully realized - the viewer gets to experience the orgasmic reality of a perpetual silence.

I once wrote on my hand "Freaky Stories" to remember to watch it.
