Twitter Capsule: Nail bomb thick with ArtBabyGodFame. Zero Dark Thirty with Aronofsky as sniper and quarry. Embarrassing, earnest, exciting.

Second Capsule: Few will ever love you for foregrounding self-pity, self-loathing, metaphor, or rancor toward your audience in your art, much less all four.

VOR:   Maybe you hate this ledge. Maybe it smells moldy. Or maybe you're thrilled with its height, its danger. Either way, it is a ledge. Audacious in the extreme.
