    Life During Wartime

    'I got some groceries, some peanut butter to last a couple of days.' Genius? I think so. This song gets me through all the hard times. It's just wonderful, makes you smile. It's not just nonsense, it all makes sense. The Talking Heads rock :D. Listen to 'Life During...

      The group was introduced to me one summer while decorating and listening to this band certainly had the rooms painted. There are three remarkable and unique tracks that I often have the pleasure to indulge in, and will discuss on this site. Here are some lyrics...

    Talking Heads-painting Windows

    As an artist, painting the windows of businesses for the holiday seasons is a great way to make money for presents. Back before they invented iPods, and the 'Walkman" was the music source, I always had mine in a fanny pack when I painted. I'd be up on a ladder, dressed with the...

    Alan Bennett Or David Byrne?

    I'm not sure if this is about Alan Bennett's Talking Heads series on television or the band Talking Heads. Both were very good in their respective genres (great word), Road To Nowhere, a particular highlight.

    I love red heads! They're normally tall, skinny, and have really pretty green eyes! And the freckles match so well with the fair skin! Red-heads are my weakness.
