Theater of the Absurd Charlie Rose Style

Charlie Rose supercut
In 2013 I saw this video at an exhibition on super cuts at the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens -- adjacent to the old style Astoria film studios where Law and Order and Sesame Street have been brought to life.

Anyway. A supercut is a kind of new media -- someone gets an idea like "What if I cut out everything in news media clippings of Donald Trump speaking except for when he utters "China"? You get the idea. Or a supercut of just blah blah blahs from across cinematic history. I posted that one on this blog. I must be obsessed with supercuts. I have wanted to create my own but never had the tenacity nor have I yet lighted upon a good idea.

This supercut from the Charlie Rose show was imagined as "if written by Samuel Beckett." By just paring down an episode on technology to a few buzzwords and phrases the creator has managed to create an nonsensical interview between Charlie Rose and himself. Here it is.

True story: I now utter "Google" nonsensically in public places. Thank you very much.
