Ah well

I made the shortlist of 170; I didn't make the short-short list of 27. I'd like to think I'm one of the "dozens more" from the shortlist that David wishes they could sign up. In any case, I can't exactly begrudge anyone one of the contracts. Better luck next time, I guess.

It's an incredibly mainstream list of records they're covering...the only one I'd really want to read is Young Marble Giants' Colossal Youth.

You just weren't boring enough.

That, and I begin to suspect that David has some obscure grudge against David Byrne or something.

Yeah, I guess with the economy being what it is, I should have expected them to go really mainstream... but in my head, Talking Heads are incredibly mainstream!
