A little bit surprised to see that official David Byrne site sells t-shirts made with American Apparel cotton. I would love to read his thoughts about the company in an official David Byrne Newsletter. What do you think DB thinks about American Apparel and its CEO’s infamous sexual harassment charges? Their risque public ad campaigns?
In the meantime, enjoy this hit —

When a rainy day has got you down and you find yourself absent of umbrella and/or raincoat, calling David Byrne’s Rainy Day Umbrella Rescue Service would be an instant fix. David Byrne arrives (preferably via teleportation) with umbrella to escort you to your destination. He is tall and makes great conversation. What more could a person ask of an umbrella escort?
Perhaps that he sing a version of Rhianna’s “Umbrella”…
According to the NY Times, summer camps are all the rage but also face hardship in the current economic climate. What they need is a creative jolt and some real inspiration. Roasting marshmallows by the campfire never was so much fun. Let’s just hope there’s no age limit, for adults and young ‘uns alike deserve a D.B. – designed enrichment retreat.
