I changed my hairstyle so many times now

My last post mentioned David Byrne and the Talking Heads, so today I had to include one of their best songs. In the George W. Bush era "Life During Wartime" has a renewed meaning, and the paranoiacal lyrics make some sort of sense. The Talking Heads are always fun to listen to because David Byrne's lyrics are fascinating, witty, and dreamy. This video is taken from the amazing concert film Stop Making Sense, directed by Jonathan Demme (Caged Heat, Silence Of The Lambs, Philadelphia, Neil Young:Heart Of Gold). Love the choreography.

"Life During Wartime"

I saw Stop Making Sense in the theater with my dad. For the last ten years I keep reminding myself to see it again, and I keep not seeing it again. I hear there's all sorts of great extras on the DVD.

You apparently have a very cool Dad.

I don't know why I haven't seen the whole thing,only what was released originally as videos, and now what you can find on YouTube. I am ashamed to say that this is so.
