Three fingers of analysis when two will do.


A hand pulls Pablo Honey by Radiohead from a collection of CDs and presses play.“When you were here before, couldn’t look you in the eye. You’re just like an angel. Your skin makes me cry.” David Duchovny on the cover of Us magazine.“You float like a feather in a beautiful world.” Hands cut and tape from the cover of the magazine. “I wish I was special you’re so fuckin’ special.”“But I’m a creep” Another page from the magazine. David Duchovny sits behind the wheel of a car, canted seductively.“What the hell am I doin’ here?” Fingers tape more pictures. “I don’t belong here.”“I don’t care if it hurts” A Yahoo search and print for mulder, scully, bed. “I wanna have control. I want a perfect body. I want a perfect soul.”“I want you to notice.” A printer slowly prints the selected image. Sara waits impatiently, grabbing as soon as it is finished. “When I’m not around. So fuckin’ special. I wish I was special.”“But I’m a creep. I’m a weirdo.” More cutting and taping. A picture of Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny, and Chris Carter in bed. “What the hell am I doin’ here? I don’t belong”“She’s running out the door…” The focus shifts between Anderson’s and Sara’s eyes. “She running out; she run, run, Run, RUN RUN!”The full image of Anderson, Duchovny, and Carter. “Whatever makes you happy whatever you want you’re so fuckin’ special I wish I was special.“But I’m a creep. I’m a weirdo.” More photos, now with the focus on Gillian Anderson. “What the hell am I doin’ here? I don’t belong here.”Anderson is suddenly torn from the collage. “I don’t belong here.”


Sara Clemens thinks too much about things, generally. They run a site called Videodame and a Twitter called @thesaraclemens.
