David Byrne on his musical Here Lies Love

'Some years later, I read in a newspaper that, in the late 1970s and early 1980s, Madame Marcos had a mirrorball installed in one floor of her New York townhouse, and that she loved going to dance clubs….

I went to see this tonight and was mesmerised by the presence of David Byrne in the audience, joining in with the singing and dancing.

It’s worth seeing and is on at the National till January.

"You can tell a lot about someone by the music they listen to. hit shuffle on your ipod/iphone/itunes/media player and write down the first 10 songs. then pass this onto 10 people."

Newsies Alerts ::::: ) Winger performed “Hungry” on Arsenio last night (w/ guest Lord Bryon on BGV). Channing Tatum was a no show. sad face emojocon. Fast Fact: I was key grip on Forrest Gump but got fired when they found out I was color blind. They said what color is this Kleenex and I said I only see black and blue. Fast forward to me at the library hiding fortune cookies in VC Andrews. Librarian tell me what do you think your doing and I was like Did someone say laser eye surgery because I did not see that coming. Cue Lord Bryon bitching about his hamstrings.

Hmmm, is this blog still written by Sufjan, I wonder? An incorrect usage of ‘your’? I don’t think so! It reads like Sam Amidon’s ‘King Speechy’ musings.

Wondering whether this is another reference to the impending shizz about to go down at AK? Don’t give up, you’re on the brink of a miracle. As I forgot to buy a ticket for the 90 million euro lottery this evening, let’s hope so! :D
