Background Noise
Background Noise
On having a bad memory and too many things. This was written, recorded, and produced by Tal Minear. Transcript: I’m really forgetful. I’m bad at putting things away and remembering where I put them. The best way for me to know where something is is to look around and see it, so things pile up. Often literally. I want things around so I can see them and remember where they are. Though, sometimes, I just forget to put things away. Every flat surface acquires objects. Reminders of what to do. Reminders of what’s already been done. Reminders that I have something to make a task easier, so that I remember I don’t need to do it the hard way. It’s visual noise, everything on every surface, and when I see it everyday it fades to the background. The pile of clothes on the chair. The stack of books on the table. The letters on the kitchen counter. The pill bottle on the desk.  It’s normal. It’s how things are. Until I finally get around to tidying, and then I notice the noise is gone.

It’s kind of nice though,  because it keeps the spiders away - the one section of the tunnels  that’s actually cool has a bunch of spiderwebs. It’s very fun to walk  though.  Yeah, that box fan is always there. Nobody knows why. We just  don’t mess with it. Now, make sure to watch your head as we walk though.  Some of the pipes on the ceiling are really low. Make sure to check how  hot a pipe is before you touch it - there’s a couple of pipes down here  that will burn you. These tunnels are a maze, so make sure you stay  close and don’t go wandering off. Our first stop is this way, to a mural  called Faith. It’s part of a series of paintings by an artist called…
