This ain’t no party. This ain’t no disco. This ain’t no foolin’ around.
– Life During Wartime, Talking Heads
To be fair… I’m not too mad about the above artwork. It’s a limited edition screenprint poster for Talking Heads’ 1984 classic live film Stop Making Sense.* I’ve simply featured this one because anyone who knows me knows I. Freaking. Love. This. Film.
Almost all other artwork from the talented team at Mondo, from Austin Texas is simply beautiful. The poster for True Grit in particular blows my mind. For more on the artwork, check out their blog: http://blog.mondotees.com
Back to the far more important matter at hand…
Almost every Friday afternoon for the last 8 years, I have played Stop Making Sense in full – to my colleagues on the stereo, to myself on the train, to an empty office whilst dancing with beer in hand. Unlike ourselves, it never gets old.
* As we get older and stop making sense… stop making sense, making sense
