stop making sense

stop making sense.

Wow. I had no idea how much time had passed. Stop Making Sense is a 1984 concert movie featuring a live performance by the Talking Heads, and I hadn’t seen the film since then—until last night.

The movie is notable for David Byrne’s “big suit”, a normal business suit that gradually increases in size as the concert progresses, until by the song “Girlfriend Is Better” (featuring lyrics from which the film takes its title) it is absurdly large.

I remember being so impressed by the suit when the film came out; last night I hardly noticed it.
