    One thought on “The New Sins”

    1. Oh, Mr Byrne Aren t we clever But how much mayonnaise can we really put on a single sandwich Mayonnaise is indeed delicious, but too much of even the most robust stuff can become saccharine And pairing off with Dave Eggers my tooth explodes

    2. Odd, interesting to browse through In English and Spanish the pictures are different but I think the text is the same in both languages Some of the language is lovely and overwrought The Heart is like the Sea, wherein dwells the Leviathan, and creeping things innumerable The Heart is like the Egyptian temples full of spiders, serpents and snakes It is a treasure house of sin A gilded palace in a lake of fire This passage is opposite a picture of pink rabbit Peeps Fun in small doses.

    3. There was probably a time when I would have found this book entertaining, even enjoyable Perhaps when I bought it in 2001 upon its publication by McSweeney s, when I was very into what they were up to Or perhaps even sooner, while in college and a massive fan of the Washington, D.C post punk outfit Nation of Ulysses and their brand of leftist agitprop Perhaps, but I doubt it Even then I likely would have found this sort of self referential and self reverential exercise overwrought and tedious Bu [...]

    4. David Byrne has such a feel for aesthetics This book captures the handout bible feel exactly, and the use of both Spanish and English makes the text feel even impersonal and wide reaching The book is so over the top and droning to the point that even the most invested reader or Byrne fan will put it down out of exhaustion Maybe that s what Bryne is actually trying to say stop relying on self help books and blind religion to answer your problems As important, if not so, is the context of the bo [...]

    5. My lovely girlfriend gave this to me for Christmas last year as I m a big Talking Heads fan The content is pretty interesting reinterpretations of traditionally accepted values and favors the acceptance and entropy instead of the imposing of order and relentless self improvement But what really did it for me is how the book itself is designed just like a Gideon s Bible that could be found anywhere I m tempted to leave it at a bus stop to spread Byrne s alterna gospel but I like the layout, photo [...]

    6. At times highlarious, at times disagreeable, at times mischievous, but always challenging and interesting A resetting of biblical imperatives for modern times, a sideswipe to all that we hold as true that s a good, thing, incidentally And it s helped my Spanish Read it in an airport, and hope that religious types come and talk to you, that s what i say.Best line we don t want the truth, we want a better fiction.

    7. This tome belongs tucked away in hotels near the dead ends of the world Where salesmen go to die, reaching for a prayer after indulging in too much drink and painful heartburn from the BBQ joint by the side A look into the absurdity of looking for answers, occasionally dropping genuinely good advice wrapped in uncomfortably televangelist prose Not words to love, live or die by but a powerful statement of an artist s view compressed into a velvety red book.

    8. It s funny and innocently unnerving, like most McSweeney s stuff I m glad I came across a copy of this Did you know honesty is a sin I like this Our loved ones demand honesty, but what they really want is better fiction.

    9. David Byrne updates and alters the Bible s cardinal sins Bizarre and profound, the book looks like a portable Bible beautiful and points at what he sees as wrong with the way we think behave in our world.

    10. come on a book on religion by david byrne are you kidding anyone who has doubts about religion, or just has alternate beliefs should take 30 minutes to read this one

    11. an art piece provocative, thought, anxiety and laugh producingr the underdeveloped reading may induce a sense of self righteousness and help feed negative stereotypes about your parents.

    12. Very odd little book, but it s by David Byrne, so why WOULDN T it be odd I liked the photos better than the text.

    13. A dissapointing reinterpretation of the goods and evils of the world I wanted so much to dig it especially since it s written by one of the greatest musical minds of our time.

    14. not the best place to start with his writing Just a list of new sins and his half serious explanations of said sins It s an attractive book though.

    15. Everything you learned as a kid wrong.Byrne presents a slightly twisted look at human habit today and leaves you feeling like a bandage was cruelly torn off by a snickering older sister.

    16. Not the kind of thing you read cover to cover but definitely a book you can pack in your handbag and refer to while waiting in line and feel entranced by the genius that is David Byrne.

    17. David Byrne of Talking Heads fame discusses why the old biblical virtues are no His wit can be matched by few.
