When there’s periods of silence in your own life, you fill in the gaps with other people’s stories. Tonight, I opt for some Elvis Presley and spin the volume dial on my Walkman upwards. I’m walking stone-faced down a moonlit Flinders Lane while caressing a mic stand in my visual cortex.

I don't bother to stop for the dinging tram as I make a beeline for the pub. I glance down at my watch before I remember it needs a...
