listening to a sign

listenable sign

At the recommendation of a friend, who questioned the very idea that someone would plug their headphones in to a sign, I did just that. The experience was, as you might guess, pretty stupid. This particular sign was in the 42nd street A/C/E Station, where I stood about a foot away from the ad to which I was tethered and listened to a few moments of John Legend. I can’t even say I remember much of the music though I am pretty sure I hated it, but to be fair the experience wasn’t helping. When I pushed my unprotected headphone plug into this skanky 42nd Street subway sign the music was already playing, I had arrived mid song. Maybe I should have waited until the song (or songs?!) looped but the draw of standing uncomfortably close to a sign, listening to new music and thinking that this was supposed to sell me a compact disc was less than strong. I unplugged from the high-tech billboard, thinking of the marketing people convincing themselves that this idea was totally awesome.
