David Byrne
was interviewed as a guest of The Colbert Report, got nailed,
performed a song and got nailed again!

  • a musical pioneer and innovator, who once fronted Talking Heads.
    • when Dr. Colbert is done with him, he'll start making sense

March 2, 2009 NailingEdit

  • new album Everything That Happens Will Happen Today
    • self-released
    • Dr. Colbert doesn't know if the album is any good because a record executive hasn't stated it's worth by virtue of his publishing it
      • Dr. Colbert didn't know if his book was any good until Time Warner said they would publish it (convincing him that he did indeed write a good book)
  • Byrne put it online allowing people to preview it
    • he mistakenly believed it would limit people's listening to the song when they're by their computer
      • Stephen keeps his computer on the dashboard of his car
  • Stephen discusses some lyrical issues
  • he has found himself behind the wheel of a large automobile (Audi AAL, a sweet ride, giving the driver the sensation of running people over with your couch) and he has a beautiful house and a beautiful wife
    • not once has he asked himself, "How did I get here?"
  • Stephen's driver, Pablo, took him here today Z(and is responsible for a lot of how Stephen got to where he is in his life at this particular time)
    • Byrne wants to meet Pablo
  • Byrne is a musician, visual artist and computer embroiderer
    • being innovative may get stale; it would interesting if he did something ordinary
  • Dr. Colbert's theory about artists: they are afraid of being ordinary
    • mistaking what which is ordinary with that which is common among people
  • in the dark of night David Byrne fears that David Byrne is actually like everybody else
    • it was the first time any of Dr. Colbert's interviews ever got that deep


  • Life Is Long
