In all these years of blogging and reading blogs and being an Internet
enthusiast, the ONE SINGLE BLOG I have so far,actually signed up for
receiving via email is that of DAVID BYRNE.
My first introduction to David Byrne was via Windows...Windows usually
offers a few pieces of free sample music with its media player and in
that windows package that I purchased way back then was included this song from
David Byrne's TALKING HEADS...and the song was so simple, yet so
complex, and the tune was so simple and easy on the ear and yet
complex in its own way...I recall with fondness how I used to hear
that song over and over and over and would never tire of it back
That is the first time I registered in my mind this name DAVID BYRNE...hmmmm
That was many years ago...
However, it is Only recently in 2008 that I googled his name to find
out more about him.
Out of the blue,Just out of whim on a day full of free hours to while
away .Upon googling him I was delighted to find out that David Byrne
actually maintains a website and a journal to go with it..As is always
customary WITH ME, I read up the whole blog with all its available
entries so far IN ONE GO... (at least many of his blog entries)
As I started reading blog entry after blog entry I suddenly realized
that this man is roughly around my Father's age and He is FULL OF
KNOWLEDGE...and FULL OF WORDS...Words that he is able to articulate
accurately and adequately to keep my interest and that happens oh so
Mostly, with other writers,I either find them lacking in originality
or lacking in substance or lacking in the interest factor ...But David
Byrne is someone who scores full points in all those departments.I
call his journal MY PERSONAL ART APPRECIATION CLASS 101.
The way he meticulously takes the time to EXPLAIN art and culture to
me VIA HIS JOURNAL ENTRIES is much appreciated.
I have knighted him my GODFATHER....(though he prolly hasn't been
personally informed of that fact by me yet!) .After all,Godparents are
here to guide and teach us and make us grow up emotionally and
I am VERY FINICKY in my praise of other people..( I am generous in my
kindness and kind hearted encouragement and appreciation for other
people though...and there is a difference between praise and kind
words,if you can see it) and yet , I am here, PRAISING David Byrne..
If you are a young person and still impressionable and want to develop
a well rounded personality,Surely,David Byrne's journal is a must
I am sure He has BIOLOGICAL CHILDREN OF HIS OWN...(who are prolly
around my age too,If I recall one of his blog entries where he
mentions his daughter and her BF ), But in writing this journal and
sharing his mind with me (and other readers)....he has managed to have
many ADOPTED children in this world TOO.:)))
Nice to know of people in my Father's age group who can be such
positive role models.
If anything, the world needs many more such great role models ,ROLE
MODELS who ACTUALLY KNOW SOMETHING AND HAVE SOMETHING TO OFFER THAT
IS WORTH OFFERING.
Here is a link to his journal

I was browsing through a japanese website and they linked me to this
japanese store for nuts and spices...Needless to say,this website was
full of japanese words, Honestly,Japanese websites are too
CARTOONISH (full of flashing images that distract the eye) and the
font is too difficult to decipher too.
Couldn't make head or tail of it all, so ,
I came back, looked for more help and this lady on the website says this :
ナッツ (nattsu) - nuts
スパイス (supaisu) - spices
ハーブ (haabu) - herbs
ドライフルーツ (dorai furuutsu) - dry fruits
シー ド (shiido) - seeds
実 (み, mi) - seeds
yeah..so "nuts" becomes "nuts-ooooh" and that is japanese? no really?
same for "spices",, "supaisu"..
All the above mentioned words are just
DISTORTED PRONOUNCIATIONS OF ENGLISH WORDS...This is absolutely FAKE
JAPANESE...Are there no ORIGINAL WORDS in japanese for these food
whosoever said that distoring english words to make a japanese accent
makes those words into japanese words?(ANGRY GLARE).I mean, seriously,
don't they have actual words for "nuts" in japanese?come on..how lazy
are japanese FOLKS getting these days?..or is it the lack of
vocabulary?..Surely , there must be actual japanese words for nuts
and spices that these punks are not aware of? ..thanks to their own
