Title: Excruciating MinutiƦ
Type: production note
Date: July 13th, 2003

B:
Much of this episode is concerned with the defrosting of our freezer. This reflects a minor revelation, expanding upon the epiphanies of ROX #23: We realized that the mundane minutiæ of our quotidian lives could serve as subject matter for our television show. And at the same time, making a TV show transformed these otherwise banal tasks into more festive endeavors.

In other words, art could make life interesting. At least it made things more interesting to us! But judging by the steadily increasing amount of viewer mail we were receiving, it was interesting to others too.

I think it was around this time that I began to feel like I was on television all the time, whether the camera was rolling or not. That sounds frightening, but it was actually a euphoric sensation.

Speaking of euphoric sensations, J makes a cryptic comment midway through this show:

“Everyday now for the past three weeks, I've had this same kind of sandwich... For all those who know me well, you know that this really means a lot to me; and when I say three weeks in a row now, you know what I mean.”

This opaque statement becomes a little clearer if you know our secret lingo. Back in the day we used “sandwich” as a code word when arranging drug deals on the phone. And I think that gives a good indication of where our heads were at then.
