Memory, and forgetting II

"I really enjoy forgetting. When I first come to a place, I notice all the little details. I notice the way the sky looks. The color of white paper. The way people walk. Doorknobs. Everything. Then I get used to the place and I don’t notice those things anymore. So only by forgetting can I see the place again as it really is."

From True Stories (1986)

:) I'm very fond of this film too; tho' it's the first time I've seen it since when it was first released, in a drunken haze, a midnight show in some arty fleapit. I appreciate David Byrne verging on the autistic in temperament...
