Did I Forget to Mention, Forget to Mention Funky?

Eventually, I will quit giggling. It just won't be anytime soon:

I caught an incredible performance by David Byrne at the Hollywood Bowl in LA tonight. Backed by the Texas-based Tosca Strings. Impassioned, funky, magnificent.



What do I smell? I smell home cookin'!

. . . it's only the funky!

It's only the funky!

Now I used to think this man was funky:

--but clearly, I had no idea the true nature of the funk.

I will find a city, find myself a city to live in--

--but only after I ascertain that it is FUNKY.

Good night.

Okay, okay, okay: I didn't see the show, obviously. Maybe it was really and truly impassioned, funky, and magnificent.

It's just a little bit to me as if Charlotte had written "SLENDER," "BIPEDAL," and "AQUATIC" in the web above Wilbur.

David Byrne always made me think what if Kafka had written an alternative version of Metamorphosis, with an insect turning into a man instead.

Maybe by "funky" she meant "smelled like old gym sock?"

Just wondering. . .
