Weirdness is a fantastic thing. Often people dodge it, like a pile of dogshit or pool of vomit on the sidewalk. Weirdness is regarded as an undesirable byproduct of something better. That’s a mistake. Without detracting from the value of the event that produced the weirdness, the weirdness itself is a magnificent thing that helps everybody get to the point. Weirdness is a spotlight aimed at something you would have never otherwise seen. It illuminates the point. It’s a helpful thing. Seek it out. Embrace it.
