Oh, and let's hear it for Talking Heads. It was about 18 years ago EXACTLY when I fell in love with this, this movie, this song, this band, this ingeneous band. My love has never faltered.

Friday Afternoon Videos
Since this week was my mom's birthday, (and there has been a lot of death affecting my friends and loved ones lately) I got to thinkin' about death and dead people, and of course, the afterlife. And of course, this lovely tune. I really like this song and I like the vision it creates of "Heaven". I'm not too keen on pearly gates or streets of gold. I hate gold. I prefer silver. Of course, I want to be with God but I feel that being with God is being at peace. And that's what this song is about for me. Peace. A place where nothing. Nothing ever happens.
