AND YOU MAY FIND YOURSELF
AND YOU MAY FIND YOURSELF
IN A BEAUTIFUL HOUSE
LIVING IN A KEK SHED
WITH A BEAUTIFUL WIFE
WITH A BEAUTIFUL WIFE
AND YOU MAY ASK YOURSELF
YOU KNOW THAT I WOULD
HOW DID I GET HERE
He imagined that this was an ability he shared with most other people
Why are the last two tracks on RiL so fucking bad
Listening Wind is a fucking masterpiece you plen
Okay that still leaves a shitty 6 minute wank fest in The Overload you nignog
WE'RE ON A ROAD TO NOWHERE
you're actually right
the first 6 tracks are masterpieces but the last 2 are just kinda ok
Facts are simple and facts are straight
Facts are lazy and facts are late
Facts all come with points of view
Facts don't do what I want them to
Facts just twist the truth around
Facts are living turned inside out
Facts are getting the best of them
Facts are nothing on the face of things
GROVELING LIKE A CASTRATED WORM IN A DESPERATE ATTEMPT TO MAINTAIN CULTURAL STATURE AMONG THE FASHION-FAGGOTS WHO BUILT YOUR MYTHOS
WATCHING THE GAYS GO BY,
good lord why
His career is mostly built on his image in certain effete realms of hipster-mainstream pop culture, which are the realms of fashionable hipster faggot gatekeepers. He's paying his dues to stay in their good graces. Really disgusting. Completely delegitimizes him as an artist, if you ever thought he was one.
Just die plz
beautiful weather today beautiful weather today beautiful weather day hows your health been hows your health been fancy seeing you here fancy seeing you here
Not an argument. What I said is true and you know it. He's a poser and now he's trying to pose with the times and it's pathetic.
FUKKIN BYRNE SAID SOMETHING LAME THAT I DISAGREE WITH. THOSE FUKKIN FEMINISTS MUST HAVE MADE HIM DO IT.
I hate Byrne. Not what I'm saying at all and I'm not butthurt that he's outed himself as the lame faggot he is, I'm happy about it. No one can make you say anything. No one had a gun to his head. He's willingly doing what he thinks will make him relevant among the people who built his mythos.
He’s already relevant. He’s one of the most popular and critically acclaimed musicians of the 20th century. What difference does it make?
He's trying to maintain his relevance and image.
Exactly. He's popular among fashionable-faggot pesudo intelligencia types and he believes that he needs to make pathetic displays like this to continue to appease them. These people are fickle and he knows it. One rape accusation and the mythos of David Byrne is David Done.
You couldn’t even back up any of your claims, and know you’re backpedaling.
IM GONNA BE
What? I'm not backpedalling on a single thing I've said and no one asked for "backing up".... what claims do you think need "backing up"? This conversation is totally dysfunctional. You have no idea what's going on here. If you think something specific that I've said is untrue, say so, clearly, and explain why, and I'll explain why you're wrong.
Byrne is irrelevant so that’s why he said this
No I mean Byrne IS relevant, but he’s just trying to keep it that way teehee.
Oh, I used the word "make" when I should have used the word "maintain". Gee you really got me. Yes he is relevant and I never meant to say that he wasn't. That has absolutely nothing to do with my point which is that his statement is a pathetic display of a man terrified about his image and pandering to what he perceives to be the zeitgeist among his hipster faggot fanbase. You're focusing on an irrelevant pedantic detail because you know what I'm saying is true and it hurts you.
He's made a bunch of great music that will be remembered maybe for centuries, you're a fucking pleb on an imageboard. He's misguided to care so much about whether women were involved but he's done so much good shit anyone who cares about music should be willing to overlook that political leaning. He's always been mild mannered, this really shouldn't come as a surprise.
talking shit about Listening Wind
I hope Mojique bomb your damn house
He's made a bunch of great music
anyone who cares about music should be willing to overlook that political leaning
It's not the fact that his politics are retarded that makes this so damning. Behavior like this shows that he's foremost a public personality - an image- rather than an artist. His mythos is built off of his image, not his music, and he knows this, and is acting accordingly. Offering up your authority as author and soul creator of your work to a mob of hysterical SJW faggots as he does in that statement shows a complete lack of authenticity as an artist - "oh yeah the fact that I didn't pander to your cultural agenda in making my work is really horrible and I'm part of the problem.... whether the work was good or not is irrelevant and subservient to your cultural crusade... pls don't ostracize me". It's pathetic and anti-art.
Your pure speculation isn’t an argument.
No speculation there. No argument from you to the opposite either.
I'M STIIIIIILL WAITING
AH AH AH AH AH AAA I'M STIIIIIIIILLL WAITING
What is good art in your opinion? Happy Merchant? Lol.
everyone who disagrees with me and is right and makes me butthurt is /pol/ and is therefore wrong just because
Some of my favorite popular musicians are Nick Drake, Aphex, Yes, Sufjan Stevens, I dunno, loads of stuff. I like a couple Talking Heads tracks but in general I think they're tremendously overrated and their cultural stature is largely built on their image rather than their music, which is mostly forgettable IMO.
Calm down it’s just banter. I’m just saying that there’s no evidence that Byrne is being incencere about this.
You don't understand. Everything I'm claiming is 100% demonstrated by the statement he made. His statement is this "it's a serious problem that my piece of art didn't include women". He's openly stating that "including women", is more important than making the best art possible. That is anti-art. That is admitting you have no authenticity as an artist - that your motivation is cultural acceptance rather than making the best art.
