Longtime readers may recall my 2013 remix of a Vinyl Café episode, wherein I took advantage of the pause-filled speaking style of the late Stuart McLean to take apart and reassemble the audio into something completely new. The result sounds like it should make sense, but it most certainly doesn’t.
I get the same sense watching the “deleted scenes” videos from The Office, like this one. Unlike the Vinyl Café, these are the bits that ended up on the cutting room floor, the bits we never got to see. Stitched together they end up as “episodes” that seem like they should make sense, but don’t. As if The Office writers were incapable of writing plot.
