Mrs. Big Picture asks me last week what I want for my birthday (tomorrow), and for the first time in my life, I do not know. Between travelling and working on a few special projects, I actually have no idea. 

One thought popped into my head:


Any T Head fans who have this — or have listened to it — please share your thoughts (re: quality of re-engineering and the dual disc).

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    my take on this act: Instrumentally usually very good (frantz/weymouth) , compositionally usually interesting, lyrically occasionally pretentious, but my god is David Byrne the most horrible vocalist to ever front a successful pop/rock act? I’m talking purely as a ‘voice’ here. At this point they strike me as extremely cerebral, but I used to find them good. Well, different strokes…..

    Buford, I’d assume that Mrs. Barry knows that Mr. Barry is a TalkingHeads fan and is asking about the technical quality of this product, not for a musical adjudication.

    Which is why I’m not going to suggest a smilar box of Bach’s Fugues, because I know that’s going nowhere.

    Barry -

    Happy Birthday – we share the same day!

    It’s a day of Libra genius…

    And I’m sending my missus the link for the same TH box.

    Best for today and many, many more,

  4. ask mrs. R to buy you “the number” — that book I still see on your wishlist.

    Have you read clayton christenson’s “the innovator’s solution? – get that..

    Or have her take you to the movies and check out al pacino’s latest masterpiece –“two for the money”.

    Every critic dissed it but i liked it.

    Jonathan Alter at Altercation (or someone on his site) reviewed it about a week ago. It got stellar reviews.
