Three Square Meals – Extended

The response to my audio project was way, way more positive than I had expected it to be. I’m not sure why, either. The project was definitely fun to do, but it didn’t (and still doesn’t) strike me as particularly compelling or mind-blowing. But apparently people enjoyed it. Maybe it’s just the rambly way I talk about food, or that my brain works in some weird way that’s interesting to see revealed. I don’t know for sure. But with that response I felt like it was worth expanding to see how it would work as a much longer sort of piece. So I endeavored to record more meals. I was going to do each and every one of them, but getting into the before-and-after recording habit (mostly the before) is difficult so I only managed to get 11 over the past week or so that I’ve been focused on it. Still, that’s not bad, and some of them turned out pretty interesting. I don’t have a lot of thoughts on the project, or rather I do, but I don’t feel ready to expand on them here. Basically there was a lot about the way the stories we tell (and want to tell) about ourselves shape our decisions. This is by no means new, but it remains really interesting to me. I would like to return to the topic at some point.

Anyway, without further ado, and in chronological order…
