sunday for everyone

It's Sunday morning here in this part of the universe and that suits me. I love Talking Heads and this song - Once In A Lifetime - reminds me of going to Croydon Flea Market on Sundays when I was a kid. I'd occasionally buy records and tapes there and although this is one song I loved, I never bought it. I can still remember hearing it over the speakers at the record stall



Don't look now, all you Sound of Music tragics fanatics LOVERS, but I think I'm converting... Uh oh how do you solve a problem...

Hi Nash
OMG (oops!) these two YouTubes were interesting. Was the first video Australian and something aliens wouldn’t understand? After watching the entire 3 minutes and 30 seconds, I’ve no idea what was going on. Perhaps its senility or dotage, but I didn’t get it. The visual effects were curious and a bit unusual.

Ah, “How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?” Try putting a lid on the caterwauling and get on with your orisons. I apologize to anyone I offended with that comment.

Saturday night T.V. at it’s finest….

Hi Miss Litzi,
When I first heard this song I liked it so much because it was different to other music I heard growing up. I've added some links if you - or anyone else - is interested

My take on it is all about questioning the suburban dream

And for my Sunday School lesson I looked up "orisons". I'm such a heathen

It's still Saturday here.

Big David Byrne fan here. He is a PERFORMANCE ARTIST. He did the book The New Sins (2002 Sydney Festival?) Great Web site WITH a journal. Just what we all need, one more blog to read—and he's not even recovering from anything.

Happy wishes from the Saturday side of the world.

BTW. How do you hold a moonbeam in your hand? That movies at least 40 years old. Doesn't anybody know by now.

Hi Wayward Son, Yes David Byrne came here for the Sydney Festival. I'll have to check out his website

To hold a moonbeam in your hand you have to close your eyes

Ha ha Denys! Yes...

Hi Nash,
Thank you for the links; they helped explain the video. Despite the fact that senility is edging ever closer and I exist in a cave, I’ve heard of the “Talking Heads” and “Brian Eno”. Whoa! “Enlightenment”! “What’s the sound of one hand clapping?”

“My mind is alive with the sound of music”….crikey, I’m cracked. Yodel-lady-who?

You also have to keep your hands open otherwise the moonbeam will evaporate.

Thanks for posting Once in a Lifetime. I haven't heard that in ages and I didn't know who it was by either. Nice start to my morning.

Hi Nash,
I know you're around and about, because you've been commenting on my site...

I just thought I'd drop by and see if you'd like get a glass of Tokay or a cup of coffee (or tea) with me. Maybe you could read my Tarot???

Crikey!
