David Byrne's Ears

I have been to a lot of concerts since we moved down here to Austin. Most have them have been very good, and some of them have been totally awesome, but I would say that the number one most awesome concert of them all was David Byrne out at the Backyard. I am usually really bad at concerts. My feet hurt, I'm tired, I hate all the people surrounding me and their dancing and talking makes me want to kill. Sometimes I faint at concerts, and I almost always complain a little or make faces that induce Josh into saying "Are you okay?" and "How are you holding up?" I like live music, but sometimes even the artist I came to see can't make me forget the uncomfortable conditions that surround me. David Byrne, on the other hand, made me love my neighbor, forget about my feet, not faint, and just be totally into him the whole time he was on stage. He even came out before his opening band and talked a little bit about how much he liked them and that he hoped we would like them too. What an awesome guy.

And wouldn't you want to know what is on this guy's personal listening list right now? Of course you would. If you check out Radio David Byrne, you can listen to a looped three hours or so of his current selections. Its an interesting mix, and I don't necessariliy like all of it (Bob Schnieder?), but I do like that it is there and that I can be one step closer to the mind of David Byrne.

After considering these two comments, I'd have to say David Byrne is less a secret boyfriend and more like a secret uncle. A secret uncle that I have a crush on.
