Friday Night Lights and David Byrne

Brian Chavez, the tight end who featured prominently in H.G. Bissinger’s book Friday Night Lights, was arrested for home invasion. Read the very odd story here.

NPR’s Weekend Edition talks to David Byrne about his book Bicycle Diaries (and also has an excerpt).

    I really like what David Byrne has to say about different cities having different auras. I’ve often wondered about that myself…maybe spurred on by the Talking Heads’ “Cities” long ago…

  2. Wow. That Chavez story is kinda odd. Though I don’t really care for the commentator degrading the fact that he came back home to practice law. Nothing wrong with that.

    Thanks for the Byrne link. I’ve been meaning to pick up his book… but kinda worry about how odd it’ll end up. 🙂
