Finally, a talking head that doesn’t call us fascists

Written by

Though clearly not all celebrities have the starpower of Scarlett or DMX, we still like to note when celebrities, especially cool ones, end up on campus. So, here’s Bwog contributor Brendan Ballou’s anecdote from yesterday:

David Byrne was just on campus!… He was wearing a black suit, white yellow shoes, and a tiny yellow backpack. Plus he had the really intense David Byrne stare and hair.”

And his explanation for his silence:

“…I think the absolute only thing I could do is sort of nod and nonchalantly walk away. And even that would only work if I was a beautiful woman with a cigarette.”

    I would have talked to him, but I have a fear of music. besides, something like that only happens once in a lifetime. I Zimbra.

    p.s.: the color I'm supposed to describe for this post isn't really yellow. It's more marigold.

    Beautiful, beautiful, BEAUTIFUL man.

    I must admit I have had more than one chance to talk to him (having run into him at several concerts throughout the city), and all I could do was stare and stutter and think about how much I wanted to have his babies...
