It’s fixed now, so comment to your hearts content.

Happiness is always a by-product. It is probably a matter of temperament, and for anything I know it may be glandular. But it is not something that can be demanded from life, and if you are not happy you had better stop worrying about it and see what treasures you can pluck from your own brand of unhappiness.

David Byrne is a badass

Wednesday, June 4th, 2008

David Byrne, the former Talking Heads front man, has been doing some awesome stuff in recent years. After releasing a few so-so solo albums, he spent time touring with the Arcade Fire, which was damn cool. Now, he is exploring new instruments, like ENTIRE BUILDINGS.

The installation is an old pipe organ whose keys are wired to devices that bang and strum on different parts of an old ferry terminal in New York. It’s not much for pop music, but it seems to make some interesting tones.
