First min. is new favorite T.Heads cover

This was stolen from the g-chat status of a fellow contributor, Mr. Daniel J. Hopkins, Esq. Why did he not make a post about this? I don't know the answer to that question. Truth is, I barely talk to Daniel J. Hopkins, Esq., we aren't even really friends. Sometimes I wish he was dead. But not today!

The first minute of the song is MILES (get it?) better than the rest, but the video is solidly entertaining through and through. And the rest of the song isn't bad or anything, I just think he should have made the entire song in the techno-robot rap style of the beginning instead of beating us over the head with the knowledge that it is a Talking Heads cover. We get it, Miles. We aren't stupid. You don't gotta make it so obvious.

Plus I just wanted to make a "Miles" pun.
