One Great Read 0005 – This Must Be David Byrne

The following was sent to subscribers of One Great Read, an email newsletter I send out periodically. Check out the archives and subscribe if you would like to receive them via email in the future.

Looking at the list of subscribers, I think I know most of you personally. I’m also pretty sure most of you are music nerds, or at least music lovers. In my mind, if you fall into either category, you are undoubtedly a David Byrne fan. I mean, really, how could you not be? Over the weekend we watched the Coachella stream on YouTube and thankfully caught David Byrne’s incredible performance. He’s not only timeless, he’s still extremely relevant, creative and infinitely talented. If you didn’t catch him last weekend, make it a point to watch him this weekend. In the mean time GQ posted a long read on him worth your attention.

Chapters often have page after page of paragraphs. It just seems such an awful lot of words to concentrate on, on their own, without something else happening. And once you’ve finished one chapter, you have to get through the another one. And usually a whole bunch more, before you can say finished, and get to the next. The next book. The next thing. The next possibility. Next next next.
