even so though, i don't know how i can get so caught up in it for hours on end. it's like channel surfing, i suppose: no longterm thought or effort required, just wonderful strangenesses and words, one after the other. i was kindof aware that a ludicrous amount of time was passing, but i didn't really feel like i'd been sitting there for so long, regardless. and then i set my alarm for 3:30 and went to sleep.
also: a surprising number of the reviews ended up veering off into existential discussions of one thing or another, which is always fun
