I was introduced to the Talking Heads and David Byrne in an introductory Humanities in the basement of the JFSB. We watched a live choreographed presentation of one of their songs. David Byrne spoke the phrase, "Bike riding is faster than a walk, slower than a car, and slighty higher than a human."
I like his style. I was scanning TED.com today for some inspiration and came across his presentation of his 1988 hit "(Nothing but) Flowers". Check it out.
