This is not my beautiful house
Hey, so Loud Boy is back.
Not sure what the context was, but I overheard this today:
Loud Boy (on the phone with a colleague): … Yeah, it was pretty exciting, Bloomberg was there, so was Lance Armstrong —
Colleague (who I can hear because they're sitting nearby): Yeah, so was David Byrne.
Loud Boy: David Byrne? Who's he?
Colleague: You know, the Talking Heads guy.
Loud Boy (baffled silence): I don't know what that is. (Pause.) But it was really cool that Lance Armstrong was there, don't you think?
I can't decide if this means I'm old and he's ignorant, or he's just ignorant. But c'mon, folks. David freaking Byrne!
it means he is ignorant
and i love david byrne
“Same as it ever was; same as it ever was; same as it ever was…”
Means you’re COOL, baby, COOL.
So many great lines, so few opportunities….
“And you may say to yourself, ‘My God, what have I done?'”
You know I still remember when that song was a hit. I was in junior high. I thought the singer must be kinda stupid to just let his life ‘happen’ to him.
Years later me and my best friend Brian were sitting in a mall food court chowing down on our Taco Time (great chain, not present on this coast) when it came on. I turned to Brian and I said “I’m 27 I work in accounting and I’ve never finished writing my novel…okay I never started. How did that happen? I don’t remember choosing ANY of this!”
Yeah, I kind of remember thinking the narrator of the song was pathetic for letting life slip him by … until … duh…
this is not my small town of Krakow…
OMG you kill me. My first blog meta-joke!
