I am thinking more and more about my Maxell UR 90 Tinted Oval Window Cassette Shell / POSITION•NORMAL / JAPAN•JAPON cassette from the mid-80s. Actually, I seem to be thinking of it almost all the time. After reverse importing it to Japan three times, as well as bringing it to the diminutive Shinjuku psychic twice, it still remains an obdurate mystery. After an improvised ceremony, I quietly placed it in a locker in Ueno Station, locked it, and walked away with the locker's yellow key. It will steep there like a tea becoming darker and richer. It will sit in the darkness of the locker until my three hundred Yen runs out and station attendants take the locker’s contents to the lost and found. What will the individual think when they first open the locker door and see my unmarked cassette waiting for them? Imagine if they played it and heard the clear nothingness. How would they assess the situation? At the appropriate moment, when I receive the correct sign, I will try to track my Maxell UR 90 Tinted Oval Window Cassette Shell / POSITION•NORMAL / JAPAN•JAPON cassette down and see where it traveled to and what stories it has acquired along the way.
