Bunker Complex

For it was important to have things to tell which interested your friends. And Miss Hearne had always been able to find interesting happenings where other people would find only dullness. It was, she often felt, a gift which was one of the great rewards of a solitary life. And a necessary gift. Because, when you were a single girl, you had to find interesting things to talk about. Other women always had their children and shopping and running a house to chat about. Besides which, their husbands often told them interesting stories. But a single girl was in a different position. People simply didn’t want to hear how she managed things like accommodation and budgets. She had to find other subjects and other subjects were mostly other people. So people she knew, people she had heard of, people she saw in the street, people she had read about, they all had to be collected and gone through like a basket of sewing so that the most interesting bits about them could be picked out and fitted together to make conversation.

Silence asks the questions that are too awkward to phrase. It even asks the questions one does not know to ask.

Watch: ‘The Truman Show' Making-Of Mockumentary

This special seems to have aired on Nickelodeon around the time of the movie. Pretty cool transmedia thing that gives you a “behind-the-scenes” look at the fictional Truman TV project.

(Thanks to James for passing this along)
