Oooof! This line killed me:

"welcome to capitalized entertainment, where everything is an audition and few things can exist-to-exist (or are made just to be made). You have to chase the spotlight as the spotlight chases you. Why else is Instagram trying to force you into Reels?"

It somehow ties in to the lack of color section later on, though I'm not 100% sure what the link is.

oh yes yes: there is definitely a connection to the color section!!!!!! i *think* it may be in the join-or-die sense of following a tiktok/insta/etc. trend because you want to be cool or have some fun, but you're really giving the algorithm what it has requested to re-share. or something like that??
