…And you may say to yourself, "This not my beautiful PowerPoint slide!" [Updated]

by Joey deVilla on October 6, 2004

I’d read that David Byrne had been getting into PowerPoint as an art medium lately, but this chat with Liz “mamamusings” Lawley was a total surprise:

Here’s a transcript for those of you who can’t see the image (a good number of you read me via RSS):

Liz: i saw david byrne give a talk on friday on his work with powerpoint, and he showed your “why i dumped you” powerpoint slide during the presentation!

Liz: nearly fell off my chair

Me: Whoa!

Me: That’s hilarious!

Liz: guess he found it online. he was showing examples of both intentionally funny ppt and unintentionally funny

The Talking Heads were a big influence on me, so finding out that David Byrne used my stuff made my day. Thanks for the heads-up, Liz, and thanks to you too, David!

(My “Why I Dumped You” PowerPoint slide appears in my July 30th entry, The Breakup Style of PowerPoint.)

Update: Here’s the page for David Byrne’s exhibit, which is titled Trees, Tombstones and Bullet Points.
