Wayne White Acts Like Himself for TED Talk

Posted By on Mon, Oct 14, 2013 at 6:30 AM

OK, so TED Talks don't always contain "ideas worth spreading" (and sometimes they barely contain ideas), but if you're a regular visitor to these blog pages, you know that when Wayne White speaks, we listen. Yes, if you know his work, this TEDxKC talk won't be a revelation — there's not a lot of new stuff — except for the ways in which watching Wayne White talk about being Wayne White is always a revelation. If you saw the film about him, Beauty Is Embarrassing, or if you saw him speak — nay, perform — at last year's Nash-Up, you know what's up. (Speaking of, this year's event is Oct. 30 at the downtown library.) But like all good ones, the story of Wayne White is worth hearing again — and the art, really, is in the telling. As Lambchop's Kurt Wagner once said, "The man just can't help it."
