Teenage Wildlife Guestbook November 1996

Thank you for visiting Teenage Wildlife. Here are some previous users' comments.


I don't want to be an angel just a little bit evil. Feel the devil in me. You can't say no to the Beauty and the Beast--I believe in magic--powers weird by mystics taught. You remind me of the baby. What baby? The baby with the power of voodoo--Secrets Secrets never seen--Don't fake it--baby lay the real thing on me. We're swimming in a sea of sham. Pray the heathen lie will disappear--In their secret fearful places they see their lives unravelling--Life lies dumb on it's heroes.

I read on the db newsgroup (I can't post there) that Lust For Life will be on Earthling. I don't know how much of it is true, but anyway I don't think it's a good idea, 'cause people will start thinking he's trying to ride Iggy's new success with the song. I really hope there will be some singles from Earthilng. That will help me get through 'til January. Ta-ta.

Hallo All! BowieManiac, Sorry I couldn't meet you on the chat. I just got home. Do you want to arrange a time to chat? I won't be home all night tonight, until about 3pm on Sunday. Let me know. Dara ! Nice to see you back. Hallo also to Joseph Rantson. Anyway, any news on new singles for Earthling, or new songs to be added?

Dark Night of the soul: Share bright failing star--the cleanest star they ever had, I tear my soul to cease the pain. Stardust sang his songs of darkness and dis-grace. When comes the shaking man. He stares at the sun till his eyes burn. Still theres nothing he can't shake. When all your faith is failing and you're full of tension and fear--under pressure--you're gonna be sick but you mustn't lose faith--to let yourself down would be a big disgrace. Keeping dark is hateful. Stand tall in the dark! For fear tonight is all--Don't pretend faith never works. I fear my days are numbered. You tremble like a flower but we're the kind of people who can shake it if we're feeling blue. My poor soul--all bruised passivity--all your regrets ride roughshod over me--promises stretched in hope and grace--the great salvation of bullshit FAITH! I says to myself Woa! "Quelle Courage!"

Hello all. Madame Sand, interesting. I've got Live Dance and have had no problem fitting it onto one tape. I'll go through it later on today and check the times. And Dara, you certainly are optimistic about Blah Blah Blah. After watching the post-Loreley interview with Bowie, I re-evalutated it myself, and still am not won over. There are about three, possibley four good songs, but I guess the patented creepiness of past Iggy records is missing. And to whoever recomended TV Eye: duh, I forgot about that one. I think it's out of print here in the US have I've been too cheap to pick up all of those Iggy imports (although I found a used copy of Soldier on CD last week!).

Alys, I've got Internet Explorer I'm not an expert but maybe I can help. Does anyone know anything about the boot recording of the 20-may-83 Frankfurt Festalle concert called "Live Dance" I've been trying to record it and it won't fit on a 90 min tape, nor the 100 min, does anyone have the track times, or do I have to labour to get them myself? Thanks

Nevada: Keep up the good work, your stuff is different from the rest of the Guestbook but in this case, that's a good thing. Bambi (or whoever): if you want an Iggy with Bowie album like Lust For Life, Blah Blah Blah is probably a better choice than The Idiot. The Idiot is from the same year but is much darker. Blah Blah Blah is from 9 years later, but like Lust For Life, is a pretty upbeat record. I like Blah Blah Blah, but be warned: not many do. It has been referred to as Iggy's Never Let Me Down. I think The Idiot is the best Bowie-Iggy record, then Lust For Life, then Blah Blah Blah. But in my book, they're all good records. Bowie recently said (at Loreley) that Blah Blah Blah was a very underrated record, that he likes it a lot, and thinks it will be critically re-evaluated in the future.

David got another small piece of favourable press yesterday in the San Francisco Chronicle. They were listing 'Turkeys and Things to be Thankful for' in the entertainment section. Telling Lies made it into the 'Things to be Thankful for' pop music section. It read: "Telling Lies"-Undaunted by recent commercial flops, this pop icon continues to experiment with new concepts, making a supreme drum and bass techno-inspired track available only on his Internet site.

For ALYS JEAN SARA HEL AND ALL THE OTHERS WHO WERE SO SUPPORTIVE of stream of consciousness/nite flights--Never let ya down--don't look down...Falling down--falling in love as the world falls down--Baby it can't fall. Death means nothing at all. We stumble and fall. Its harder to fall. Can you hear it fall? We kissed as though nothing could fall. No place to hide--NO WAY to fall. Chev brakes are snarling as you stumble across the road-stumble like a blind man--a series of shocks, sneakers fall apart. They tumble blindly as they make their way--tumble and twirl. On nite flights--only one way to fall--falls upon deaf ears, when the shadows fall down the walls--they fall on today--we crashed a thousand yards below--what a fantastic death abyss! Fall into my arms--never gonna fall for modern love! Saw the stars crashing down down down--shrieking as they fall.

Well, I certainly hope it is Reeves. Then, if it IS him, that information will be true. If that's true, I'm sure we'll all be happy January 28th. About that Eno diary, I just ordered it from Walden Books this past week. Hopefully, it's good. I've been waiting to read a good book....err diary! ehhe. Bye for now.

Brian Eno put out his 1994 diary (edited, of course!) as 'A Year with Swollen Appendices'. It covers a year, and has quite a large appendix of additional material at the end! No discography, I don't think, just notes on various parts of the year, additional info, etc. That year he worked with Bowie on OUTSIDE, and those entries are quite delightful. Eno also talks of working with U2, of putting on several art shows and charity events, of his travels, what he cooked for dinner, his children, his email, his views on art, politics, the direction the world is going in, the direction he thinks it SHOULD be going in. I am enjoying it. Unlike 'Diamond Nebula', Borders did manage to dig up one copy of the Eno diary from the 'music' section. Here's one amusing bit: David and Eno were wondering over some complex rhythms they'd come up with for one segment of OUTSIDE. When Eno asked: "Where'd we get that?" Bowie (quoting Iman) replied "White men try harder!" Hel

'Hallo' to all the 'regulars', to all my family, and 'welcome' to the new contributors who have recently joined us! A question--I've been trying through several shops to order a copy of Jeremy Reed's 'Diamond Nebula', the book where the future-reality is based on a synthesis of the works of Bowie/Warhol/Ballard. Even Borders Books has refused to order one, saying they had 'too much trouble with that publisher', which I gather is an English firm! If anyone can find one or knows how to actually order one, please email me: I'd glady post you the cash to take care of the transaction if your local shop has one! (book junkie here!) Have a great weekend! Hel P.S. I'm now in the middle of Brian Eno's diary, which has some great sections about Bowie, and the other material is quite interesting, too!

Someone asked about an Iggy/Bowie album like Lust. Bowie also produced Iggy's The Idiot and Blah Blah Blah, which aren't really like Lust. Blah sucks, IMO, but Idiot is great. I think Iggy's album New Values is his best, but it is unfortunately out of print here in the US. And that Annie Lennox boot. I got one a few years ago. It's a great set. I should get the legit release, since the sound is pretty bad on mine. Some of the songs were released on some singels here in the US.

We just found this site, and this it is the grooviest! WE would like to say "hi" to all you BOWIEPHILES, and say we've loved him ever since a strange compulsion forced Ektar to pick up his greatest hits Changes in K-Mart. We think that db should have his own Happy Meal at Mickey D's! No, really... YES! At BK too! We're just overwhelmed that there are other people like us out there -- because no one in the state of Michigan seems to love him like we do! (And our friends are tired of listening to us ramble on about his great hair!)

Where is it the rest of the world exists when my lights go out. My mind delves into dark reaches, lit occasionally with electric fear and a couple of Bowie tunes. Imitations are fruitless as keys to these dimensionless paths. Anyone interested there I've seen a bootleg of Annie Lennox's MTV unplugged performance, so it exists and I know where to get a copy. I might buy it myself, if I can bring myself to part with the money, I'm such a miser when it comes to money. Tsk! Later friends, Happy Yankee Thanksgiving!

Janine, I found the David Bowie - Nite Life for $59.99 US as a 2 cd set, recorded live at Hamburg, 25 Jan 96, its a bootleg, and is available at a store called Off the Record in Royal Oak, MI, USA. Since you were at the concert do you think it is worth it to get it? If you want to arrange something so you can get it or if I buy it trade for a copy, e-mail in this once in a life time opp.

Looks like everyone has worked out how to post their messages in colour text. You clever things you. Being from Australia I was interested to hear that Tina Turner will be touring in March 1997. If the rumours about David touring here in March are correct, then we will have David and Tina in the same place at the same time.Maybe the Australian audience can look forward to some surprise appearances at each of these performers concerts. It's happened before and maybe it will happen again. Here's hoping. Is anyone from the guest-book (other than Trinia) planning to travel to Australia for the shows. It will be well worth the trip. In Australia David only does indoor shows and a lot of them. In 1987 during the Glass Spider tour we got eight indoor shows just in Sydney alone (not to mention the other major cities).

Hello everyone!! I'm in a Bowie induced haze today, so please forgive me if anything I say is incoherent. I was at the library but almost all the books on David were checked out!! :-( Well, at least I know that someone else in this city is a Bowie fan. I was just wondering what books people have read that they consider realiable (or perhaps just entertaining) sources. I know I've probably asked this question before, but...like I said, I'm not really thinking straight. :-) P.S. Don't worry Alys, it's okay about the colors...

Hello to all Bowie Fans (Both those who made Positive and Negative replies to the lyrical wanderings) I am hardly ever on this guestbook and only correspond with a few people from the guestbook. I find it unusual and unneccessay that people should hurl insults at eac other over nothing. Like Noam said if you don't like it--ignore it. I have no interest in getting so involved in endless hours of chatting or fighting and getting involved in behind the scenes stuff--In fact--My primary interest in Bowie is artistic/intellectual--I am looking to share genuine insights into the WORK he has put out since the late 60's with any one who also likes to delve deeply into the thoughts and feelings of a writer/artist --Happy Holidays to all--I wish you peace!

Everyone should lighten up a bit, and if you get flamed, don't reply, because it will only make it last longer. 2) I don't really like Mr. Kerr's posting personally, but that doen'st meen someone should ban him from the guestbook. He is doing creative work, and as I said before, lighten up. You don't have to read it, and it's not THAT long. 3) I already have something to write to Mr. Bowie's birthday, so now I just have to get a scanned photo. I will. Don't worry. Ta-ta all. Have fun.

Sheesh, I wish everyone would STOP fighting! I know all you combatants (most of you!) and you really are all quite wonderful people: why are we ruining the Guestbook wrangling with each other this week? I'm going to pretend briefly that it is peaceful here and say: someone/anyone who is FAMILIAR with the Bassman Bowie page, PLEASE email me. I have important questions about some things there and have promised someone whom I cannot name that I will TRY to find out the answers! It is important! I'm glad Evan didn't take that dip in the Delaware river: I knew he was in danger, but didn't warn him (bad me!) Happy Holiday to all my fellow Americans who are going to be traveling and eating tormented turkeys tomorrow! I'll be back Friday in cyberspace! And 'hallo' to all my cyber-family....even the ones engaged in this silly war!! Hel

Salaam! Nevada Kerr is a genius--20 years FEVERISHLY studying Human nature is a short short time in the scheme of history...Emerging markets are a thing of the past! There is a thin line between the MARKET MAN and the MARKED MAN... Bounty and your wealth in land-TERROR IN A BEST LAID PLAN....Hopefully someday you will discover your bored and boring messages... Sell me a coat with buttons of silver. Sell me a coat that's red and gold. Sell me a coat with little patch pockets. Sell me a coat cause I FEEL COLD--Now I am reducing my self to your level with these stupid insults--Perhaps if you were creative enough--you would have more interesting replies...You are just providing me with ideas which I will only use to entertain myself with...Lust for the free life--quashed and maimed--YOU ARE A VALUABLE LOVED ONE LEFT UN-NAMED?

There is more than MONEY working here--There's MINDLESS Maggot glare--Like a crazed, cracked actor---La la la la Silly boy blue--I'm a DIZZY'S wahat I'm trying to say. I saw the multitude of faces--honest, rich and clean--as the MERCHANDISE exchanged and MONEY roared! And the road is coming to it's end--Now the damned have no time to make amends--No purse of token FORTUNE stands in our way! Have you sought fortune--EVASIVE AND SHY? Wonder how the DOLLAR went down--Sound of gold--Sound of the devil breaking parole--MONEY goes to Money heaven--Bodies go to body hell! Oh, OH, success--I can't help myself--I just got to, got to, got to. I can't stand it! Mink and shiny silver fox--now legwarmers--Family badge of sapphire & cracked emerald-Any Day now!

Bowie who named himself after the BOWIE KNIFE did so in order to provoke, incite, and inspire. He pricks you--putting pain in a stranger... Drive like a demon...Shake them cold...Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting thru my OPENED mind--like pain, like the tears on my face--I'm a prisoner of love--and prison can't hold all this greedy intention. Torture comes and torture goes. I was caught from a hand nurtured on grime, goodwill, and screams--Scream like a baby-baby universal or baby grace--tiny wails, tiny cries! And there is NOWHERE to SCREAM! Theres gonna be sorrow. I'm in TEARS again--so I'll dance my life away--a million dreams, a million scars--for fear your grace will fall. Scream out aloud as they shoot you down--They are people I know, people I love--They seem so UNHAPPY--Dead or Alive!? Jealousies scream--cried so much his face was wet! Ain't there one damn song that can make me break down and cry!

Oh, where IS everyone tonight?? I'm on chat and I'm so lonely... :-( Well if I may add my two cents to this recent topic (without sounding too repetitive), I really think some people on here need to chill out. Most of the people who use this guestbook are regulars to this page who are all understanding to one another. We can tolerate some silliness, and we even like to participate in it!! If this guestbook was the way some would seem to prefer it, I don't think it would be half as interesting or entertaining. Just lighten up. P.S. I like the lyrics, too Navada Kerr. Well, love to David and the rest of you!! I love you all!! :-)

Robot Monster is correct! Rundgren also produced for the New York Dolls, Tom Robinson Band, Rick Derringer, The Tubes, Pattie Smith Group, Jules Shear, The Lords Of The New Church, The Persuit Of Happiness as well as many others. I'd love to hear some sort of joint effort between Bowie and Rundgren. They are both so high-tech oriented I can only imagine what the two of them could come up with. Wishful thinking...

I will be returning to Balitmore and I won't be able to get on the net.... If I miss the crew coming to Frostburg, I deeply regret it... But Hey I expect we shall all meet at the next concert! Or heck we should get up to date info on the Art exibit in NY! Anyone got info on that? Hel??? Hey... I think I'm a bit nervous I still haven't decided what to say in my birthday wish!

Oh well....it's the message that counts. Come everyone, tell me your dreams. Preferably email me...this project is really important, and I'd like to have some really good dreams to draw.

Hallo spaceboys and girls, I am REALLY sorry, because I am not going to post any Bowie news, but I just want to say that this board has always been very amiable, pleasant and otherwise tolerant. I think it is extremely lame for people to be writing messages criticizing other people's contributions, and not even have the common decency to leave their email addresses. It is quite gutless. Let's all go back to being the considerate, friendly, familial little crew of die-hard Bowie fans we've always been. Not to say a good debate isn't worthwhile, but if you have something to say, especially if it's controversial, identify yourself. This anonymous posting is just a display of animosity! I have Evan and if things don't shape up around here, I won't let him come back!!! :-) Love all of you (yes, even the mean and nasty ones).

Now don't be fooled by fools who promise you the world. Its no Game! They are just standing there watching you make a fool out of me. The Barbs laughed--the fool is dead! I pity the fool!

Hey all you Philly kids, don't keep Evan over there too long; we California girls miss his cruel but kind touch. And Robot Monster, don't forget to pluck that turkey BEFORE you stuff it and stick it in the oven (yeah, I know I promised I would only post pertinent info, but I lied; I learned from a very good teacher). And of course Vive le dindon (another one of those groovy-sounding French words, considering what it is). love-on, ya!

Humor is sacred! I agree--the Serious Ones should have a Fun Time! Time flies when you are having fun. What are we coming to--No room for me, no fun for you? He screamed like a baby. He was a gun, and I never knew his last NAME and we never had no FUN--then SUN-SHINE entered his days--Gone were his worries, his hopeless maze--His life was fun and his heart was full of joy. Every thrill is gone--Wasn't too much fun at all-after all. She said she missed me and all the FUN we've had. She sees the rich trash having so much fun--wonder where they get their energy from? You think you have had alot of FUN but you ain't got NOTHING--you are on the run...I am having so much fun with the poisonous people--Slackness, softness are the sort of things to shun--NOTHING could be harder than the quest for fun--Lots of strength is needed and EXPERIENCE too--Swollen bellies can embarrass you!

Rex, I assume you are referring to Todd Rundgren, or as I think he is known now, TR-1 or something like that. Doesn't he have a weekly music radio show? The one thing he produced that stands out to me is XTC's SKYLARKING, a wonderful album. And, proof of Rolling Stone's "consistency" that I've said so much about before: RS originally trashed this album upon it's release in 1986/7(?), but it then quietly found its place on their top 100 albums of all time. Go figure.

Niteflite, I believe Bowie is referring to "Golden Years" when he mentions "Goldie" in the Rolling Stone article. The kids were just crass, he was the nazz..." Anyone know who was in the band "The Nazz"? Hint...very underrated American known for his talent as a producer as well as musician. He plays almost every instrument imaginable. No, it's not Adrian Belew. (Bowie was not referring to this person in the song, I just thought of this trivia because I was listening to "Ziggy...")

OKAAAY...I left for two days,and look what I find when I come back: pure aggressivness on the part of some people who have logged in recently...I am going to try and be as polite and mature about this as I can,and reply with witty and tolerant remarks,as much as I can.First of all,this is not an INFORMATION PAGE,if you'll excuse me from reminding you...Secondly,humour never hurts,except the ones who don't understand it, or want to eliminate it...If some people think that this guestbook has drifted from its true meaning,I am really sorry,but I have to disagree.I would like to remind you that,even if I am a student who has free access to the net,I am also a french student miles away from home,and who likes to have a bit of fun on this guestbook,either reading messages or writing them.May I remind you that,even if Bowie is important to us all,(at least we have that in common...)this page is still about entertainment,and entertainment only.We are NOT boring old professors giving the absolute knowledge to everyone about everything Bowie has ever made,for Christ's sake!!!I just cannot believe that I am being scolded like a child (and please,don't bother to write that's because I'm acting like one...),and all of this just because some of us are indulging in writing harmless jokes!I knew this would happen,after all,every religion has its INQUISITION,its TORQUEMADA(leader of the infamous spanish Inquisition).BUT LET ME REMIND YOU THAT WE ARE NOT A SECT, OR MEMBERS OF A CHURCH OF ANY KIND IN HERE,WE ARE JUST BOWIE FANS HAVING A BIT OF FUN IMAGINING THINGS THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN!If you want me to just start exposing my knowledge on D.Bowie's astounding career,believe me,I could start doing so,but not as well,far from it,as EVAN does everyday on his great site.If some people really believe we are being silly,or childish,or whatever,I am very sorry to say that I couldn't care less,and that,after all,I am still young!If these people(who started this)feel that they are too good and clever for our pathetic little humour,well I am very sorry to hear it,it won't stop me from breathing.To finish with my rather long,but necessary for me,answer to self-satisfied,righteous CENSORSHIP,I would add:"RIRE EST LE PROPRE DE L'HOMME"(GO TO YOUR FRENCH DICTIONNARIES,AT LEAST THAT WILL BE SOMETHING PRODUCTIVE,NOT DESTRUCTIVE...)BYE,and hang in there,RAMONA,BOWIE MANIAC,ROBOT MONSTER,at least you make ME laugh...

I rather ENJOYED all the posts, but then, I don't have to wait for a long download and my access is free! BUT I might suggest that those looking purely for NEWS go to the main page, where Evan does a really excellent job of taking any news he finds here OR that is sent to him and posting it under 'NEWS'. If it is just the news you want, don't load this page, read the NEWS page! I agree a happy medium of some sort between short, dry posts (boring) and endless chatting must be maintained, but don't get all bent when people start having a bit of fun! ERLICHTDA!! (Lighten up!!)

OK, semi-pertinent reference here. Just saw the glowing random note in RS about Bowie at the Bridge School concerts (and they're barely getting around to mentioning it?).

A PLEA on behalf of Steve Pafford concerning upcoming issue # 5. Does ANYONE out there have a photo taken at the bridge show (in color only)that they would be willing to let Steve use? Or perhaps a contact number? Also does anyone out there have the Italian Vogue from 1978-79 which had David on the cover? Looking for a color laser copy! Please e-mail me if you have access to either. Thanks!

Someone like you should not be allowed to start any fires...Got to keep searching and searching and oh what will I be believing and who will connect me with love--the priest that tastes the word and told of love--just to touch the flaming dove--bye bye love...Who will love A Lad In-sane?--I smiled sadly for a love I could not obey. I'm drawn between the light and dark. Stay away from the light--Wondrous beings chained to life. No death for the perfect men--I can't believe--I've no control--I'm frightened by the total goal--I am stiff on my legend--the films that I made--Forget that I'm FIFTY cause you just got paid. Heaven is on the pillow--Its silence competes with hells--Its a razor sharp crap shoot affair! I wanted no distractions like every good boy should...I stumble like a blind man--Can't forget you. But all I have to give is guilt for dreaming!

Okay, I've gotta weigh in on the guestbook issue. I understand, and maybe I've gone overboard. I try to include something pertinent in my comments, aside from stupid references. So, I fess up as a guilty culprit. And People's Poet, if you want to find out about bubble machines, rent the movie Robot Monster. So, insert relevant db observations here: I just got a copy of the 1990 Milton Keynes show, and this is by far the best show I've heard from this tour. Belew does some fantastic work on "Stay". And the flip side, I also got a show from 1987, and it's amazing how db can fuck up a song as good as "All the Madmen".

Dont take this the wrong way anyone. Just thought that I had to say this. This Guest-book used to be my favourite site on the Internet to find up to date information about David Bowie and his music. But lately it has got a bit boring and I have actually been avoiding it. I suppose that a lot of you are accessing the Internet for free through University, school or workplace computers. But you must remember that a lot of us are using home computers and connecting to the Internet through commercial providers which are quite expensive to subscribe to. So it is a bit annoying to take minutes to down-load the Guest-book just to find it full of repetitive rubbish about kidnapping and wigs. A little one-off joke or personal comment that is entertaining is great and makes the Guest-book friendly and fun, like it use to be. But when it goes on for day after day it becomes a bit tedious and makes me less likely to visit. The things I like best about this page and the things that I would encourage:- 1. Helping each other out by pointing us in the direction of any Bowie related material that you have found elsewhere on the Internet. 2. Reviews of any new books or magazine / newspaper articles relating to David and his work. 3. Personal experiences of how David and his music has had an effect on our lives. 4. Stories about your best Bowie experience. This might be a special concert, a meeting or near meeting, or the first time that you heard a particular song and how it went on to become an all time favourite. 5. News about all Bowie releases (both official and unofficial) for the serious collector of Bowie records. For example, the other day I found a limited edition 7 inch vinyl single of HALLO SPACEBOY (the Pet Shop Boys remix) on fluorescent pink vinyl. Before this I didnt know that it existed. If we all put our resources together we could come up with the most comprehensive and accurate Bowie discography on the web. I hope nobody takes any offence to these comments. The last thing that I would want to do would be to upset any fellow Bowie fan. I love anyone that loves David Bowie and his music as much as I do. And just to show that I do have a sense of humour I have composed a little poem. :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) For days Ive read nothing else but talk on wigs; Than that was replaced by Homer and pigs. Then more talk about Davids new wife Iman; And how her favourite sandwich is chicken. Look hear comes another reference to Marlboro; If I hear it again the temper will then blow. Im totally bewildered by the bubble machine; Is it just silly or am I too mean. All this talk about helicopters and rubber hoses; Quite frankly its starting to get up our noses. No more talk about this silly kidnapping; Or my computer keyboard I will stop tapping. :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

Hallo again: Well I've got VH1 on today, and they are showing a series of special programs on the 1970's. One entitled "The Sexes" features a series of interviews with David Bowie about midway through the show in a segment about the gender-bending bands of that era. Actually nothing too revelatory, but I have attempted to write down the quotes (but don't quote me :-). In reference to the Ziggy character: "I went through the whole of the early '70's, up to 1974, then it was no longer something I was comfortable with. That I was a closet heterosexual". "I don't know what I thought I was expanding. I guess I just wanted to experience everything". "I remember seeing a film about high priests who were all practicing in drag. In my mind there was something of a high priest about the Ziggy character." They showed clips from Ziggy Stardust Hammersmith show and some of the interviews are from the BTWN video, while other clips show Bowie surrounded by photos from Outside, so were certainly more recent. The show ends with clips of Bowie doing Heroes, where he says: "Heroes, when I wrote that, for me that was almost a letting go of the 70's. I've become epitomized by the 70's but actually I am a child of the 60's and we were taught then to question all the taboos and to continually search for a way of expanding our horizons."

Here's a quote from the Serious Moonlight Tour Book: "Carlos is as close to Bowie as any musician will ever likely be." And it goes on to say that Carlos and David met when Carlos was asked to play for the Lulu sessions being produced by David. Sooo, I'm hoping we can talk to Carlos in an Evan-moderated chat soon, courtesy of Patti. Also, there's a place for everything on the net and I don't think the Bowie Guestbook is the place for what's been going on here recently. I'd like to see the Guestbook be a place where Bowie fans from all over the world could come to read about David, and be interested in what they're reading. I do think that's Evan's purpose here. I'd like David to want to come here and read this page too. Nothing wrong with personal interspersed comments either, but message after message all in the same vein does get tiresome. Chat or email would be the better choice. My opinion and sweetthing's. Hi growing family!

I just watched Bowie's Saturday Night Live appearance for the first time. What an amazing piece of performance art, even if he did muff one line in Boys Keep Swinging! What did ever become of Stacy Heydon? I almost didn't recognize him without all of that hair. Before, I had only seen about 5 seconds of this performance, and had feared it was going to be pretentious, but I'm just in awe. BTW, Goldmine is a record collecting magazine. I seem to have already lost my copy, but from what I remember, the article includes some quite from Bowie during the Arnold Corns period.

Sweetthing, I agree with you! I don't come to the Guestbook as often because of all the crap that should be sent via e-mail. Here is some pertinent info: In the Dec. 12 issue of Rolling Stone there is an article entitled "David Bowie Rumbles In The Jungle On 'Earthling'" The song "Bring Me The Disco King" has "...the strange gloss of the 70's to it." according to Bowie himself. In talking about the jungle sound of "Little Wonder" Bowie says: "I've never been a purist - Goldie it aint. Instead I wanted to couple my hard-rock band with a melody-driven jungle subtext." The basic tracks of "Earthling" were completed in 12 days in order to keep the intensity level up. "We don't want to spoil the energy." "I might even go with some rough mixes with no effects." About his band, Bowie said it's his "best band since Spiders From Mars." Concerning the evolution of "Earthling" Bowie says "I keep running the refrain of, 'What do we want as our guidance and Godhead?' Is it our own technology, or is it some kind of spiritual search? I'm very happy as an earthling. But those things unconsciously mean a lot to me." You all may want to pick up the rag, it has a nice photo of Bowie in the sudio. Evan, can you e-mail me my log-in password? I think I may have written it down incorrectly because I can't get in. Thanks.

I don't feel too sweet at the moment. Why don't you people email each other all that shit you're posting on the guestbook? Do you think even a small percentage of us are paying attention or want it here? We're tired of scrolling through the same old same old every day trying to find something pertinent. Not fair to everyone else, so plan your kidnapping in secret from now on as kidnappings should be planned. It's so godawful boring. That means it isn't interesting, ladies.

Uh, apparently I stutter, Ramona. I said Robot Monster fur is among the *softest* in the world. Guarrenteed no chafing. I would be compelled to say that it's enough to win over the affections of one Mr. Bowie, but he went off and married someone only slighty more beautiful than Standard Issue Robot Monsters such as myself. Homer is dissapointed that he won't be able to tug on your locks here (he seems to have taken a liking to you, odd isn't it?). I guess after the kidnapping, you can do whatever you want to Dave with your bubble machine. We can't deny you that. BTW, onto real matters, there is an articel in this month's Goldmine about Arnold Corns. Check it out.

*ahem* "Oh, nous les vaincrons Nous les vaincrons a jamais..." But then again, that's just me. Hallo all! Anelise, I was flipping thru my little French dictionary last night and I came up with the following (and pardon my French, since it's gotten rather old and soggy after all these years, along with the rest of my brain). After all, anything sounds good in French. Feel free to pick at the following (but not too much, though, since they'll never heal if you keep picking at them): la jeune francaise, la Duchesse blanche mince, l'araigne de verre (unless of course you want nothing whatsoever to do with THAT album), la gnomide rieuse (which sounds sooo sexy, considering what it is), son anorack! j'adore son anorack!, db est le cadeau de Dieu aux femmes (hmm, that's maybe a bit too long), or (my personal fave) db a du sex-appeal. Of course, there's always the ever popular ouevre le chien. Robot Monster, I am NOT going to let you go pawing thru my Tacky 70s box; after the last time you went thru it my limited edition autographed Trevor Bolder sideburns (the silver ones, no less; you've no idea the trouble I had to go thru to get those babies) *mysteriously* disappeared. Ramses, I just found the cutest little pair of 6-inch spiked heels; they'll be perfect for your outfit. Wonder (and all the rest of you who are wondering), I think I should explain what the Zonkers! are (normally I'd have to kill you if I told, but I'm feeling rather magnanimous today). See, Zonkers! are a certain brand of carmel corn. Bowie was floating on a sugar high from them when he concocted the whole Let's Dance/Serious Moonlight deal. He tried to get off of them, and the result led to both Tonight and Never Let Me Down. Reeves Gabrels got him hooked again, leading to the Tin Machine era and an overall improvement in his output. He's sworn by them ever since. love-on, ya!

Hallo All! Anelise, how about using Baby Grace as a nickname or something? It's very Bowie related. Ramona, sounds like some good ideas for the kidnapping are popping up. Count me in for a stakeout, if you can forward a plane ticket, etc. (LOL) Hope it works! Evan, I hope that everything works out with the BDay card....has JeanMarie had anymore problems? Whatever happened to BowieManiac? And, how do you do colors for writing? I'd love to know. Can a computer student help me out? :-)

Bowie was mentioned (albeit very briefly and not very flatteringly) on this morning's Sky 1 Hitmix. They were asking people on the street "Who has the worst long hair style in pop?" and one girl said "David Bowie". BTW, the overwhelming winners were Mick Hucknell of Simply Red and Michael Bolton, who both got loads of votes.

I thought about this kidnapping and I reached the conclusion that we don't know where should we kidnap him from. Where will he be, when the time comes, and the bell rings three times (?) So I suggest we follow him everywhere, and learn his behaviour patterns, if any. A stake out, with a busted old car, some doughnuts and coffee. That's my part of the action, if you are willing to cover my expenses, including the plane ride. Ta-ta. BTW - I won't be here this week, and probably not too much next week, so Ta-ta again.

Oh, why not one more? I was reading a nifty album buying guide called the "Snoops Buyers Guide To Great Albums 1996." Naturally I looked up David. They have a nifty, (but symbolically pathetic,) system of rating albums. One to Five "Bones." Five the best. Also, very shitty albums just get a "WOOF" as they call it. Well, topping their list: "The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars," 4 and 1/2 bones. "Aladdin Sane," 4 bones. "Young Americans" and "Station To Station" also 4 bones, the latter being praised as "...the album that showed David's first major change to avoid commercialistic chaos. It ushered in his most creative period, The Berlin Trilogy with Brian Eno." Alas, "Low" through "Lodger" are listed as "average." Even more shocking, "The Buddha of Suburbia," my alltime fave, was given a "WOOF" for being "simplistic." "Hunky Dory," "Outside," and "Scary Monsters and Super Creeps," all "average." After all this, it's no surprise... "Never Let Me Down" didn't even warrant a "WOOF" all because of it's "dreadful first single, 'Day-In, Day-Out.'" Critics suck...

I figure I'll spend my time working on what to say for my birthday wish. Hel 1&2 I guess a lot of us are in the same boat with that one. His work has meant so much to me that I don't know what to say to him. Josie, I'll be leaving here on Wed. around 7 or 8 pm. and I'll be back Sunday night. So I may miss you... Philly eh? Hmm..

HI!I see everyone is putting some thought in the first Bowie abduction plan ever,that's great!I think stuffing Iman with a few dozens of chicken sandwiches sounds like fun,besides,it looks like the woman never eats!!And then,while she is choking on the sandwiches,we grab Davey by his gorgeous hair and put him in our great copter!I could even play the French maid,because I am French!By the way,about grabbing nice little Dave by the hair,I was only kidding,I would never touch a hair on Bowie's head,even if the man is wearing a hairpiece!To finish with,I would like you guys to help me choose a cool,maybe Bowie-related surname for myself that I could use in here,rather than my real name!I thought maybe French weirdo,but it is not Bowie-related!SO PLEASE,GUYS,TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK AND GIVE ME SOME IDEAS!I know you are all pretty imaginative and creative from what I've read so far,and I am thinking especially of you,RAMONA and HEL!!!Bye now!

Its so hard for us to really be--really you anf really me--I'm never bored--so I'll never get old. The monster was me. I can't tell good from bad. The solid book we wrote can not be found today-Little Wonder! You can't make mistakes with babies--Think about all the strange things circulating around. This dot marks your location. She's uncertain if she likes him but she knows she really loves him. Maybe I'll take something to help me. Nobody here can do it for me. Wear you wound with honor. Drifting into my solitude.

Hot Pink!? Ramsey, I never knew you had it in you. How'd you know about my boas? I always try to be so discreet with them; apparently, I've failed. Either that or that was your secret spy camera that I found hidden behind my mirror the other day. You know, I was thinking that we can use my multi-colored feather boas to tie Bowie up instead of those cheap-o restraints of yours (his skin is so sensitive and we must do all we can to keep it that way, although I imagine he'd like to be treated to the bubble machine as well). I've got a couple of extra fluorescent orange pants and hair extensions that you can put in your 80s collection if you want them. And I'll send some of those men down the hall to you cuz I'm running out of space in my closet. love-on, ya!

Hello all you crazy Bowie people. I think this abduction plot is coming together quite nicely. I've taken the French maid outfit to the cleaners and I'll pick up some of those Yellow Zonkers, just in case. Ramona, I may need a feather duster, although I fear the only feathers you have are in the form of boas. Robot Monster, I know a good electrolysis expert if you're interested! And by the way, I would recommend Maker's Mark bourbon as a more powerful fuel for that bubble machine, being a good Kentucky girl. Alas, I only have some 1980's collectibles, not nearly as trendy as rehashing the 70's. I'll have to hold onto my Clairol hot rollers (excellent for that Farrah Fawcett flip head doo), my GoGos albums and hot pink and green accessories until the 80's are hip again! P.S., Ramona, can you send some of those men my way? Aloha

I told you you'd have a good reason to use it one day). But if the Marlboros don't work, you can always entice him (in addition to your stunning beauty) with Screaming Yellow Zonkers! (it's a little known fact that Dave's been hooked on these little things since the Let's Dance days). Robot Monster, I hear the people at Nair are interested in you as their new spokesmodel; email me back if you want their number. By the way, WHICH head of the Disco King is Bowie looking for? I'm flipping thru my box of Tacky Things from the 70s, and among the burnt Shrinky Dinks, used-up tubes of Super Elastic Bubble Plastic, and black velvet paintings of the Fonz and the Hardy Boys, I found my collection of Disco King Heads (exclusively from the Franklin Mint). I've got Travolta, Terio, the Brothers Gibb (Maurice's nose is missing, but little Andy looks so cute), the two Bs from ABBA, and the Leather Boy from the Village People (I couldn't afford to get the complete set). I'm willing to part with any one of these if Bowie decrees it. love-on, ya!

Ramsey, there is nothing wrong with my pink leggings. The hair that sticks out from around the edges, due to my furry exterior, acts like a pheromone for men. Ramona, I was hearbroken when I didn't make the Solid Gold troop, since I did nothing but dream about having a permenant melvin up my butt. Homer and I have been discussing how we can deceive our parole officer and join in on the kidnapping. But if I go, Homer has to be there too. He's being very stubburn about it. And I'll be sure to fire up my bubble machine with a bottle of Jack Daniels instead of those clumpy batteries.

Good lord Ramona, now I'm picturing Robot Monster in pink spandex leggings.... As far as the abduction plot, I say I pose as the French maid and offer David some Marlboros, then the rest of you can jump him while I offer him a light, and throw him in the 'copter! Ramona must lead the troops, wielding the rubber hose. I agree it would be best to keep Iman occupied with a few chicken sandwiches. Hey, I know Dave Thomas, I'll see what I can do!!!

SAc, Ca USA - Thursday, November 21, 1996 at 19:31:47 (EST)
Hmmm, I'm not sure if we should incorporate Iman into the *Let's Kidnap Davey* scheme. After all, how much fun can you have with him with the little woman there? The Marlboros should suffice. I think our safest bet is to make sure that we have Dave Thomas distract her while we carry out our evil abduction. And Robot Monster, I know how bitter you are over not making it as a Solid Gold Dancer, but that Dance Fever reference gave me yet another visual that I didn't need!! But you can still help in the kidnap scheme if you really wanna. See, all you gotta do is have Homer the Gigolo Pig do a little magic dance for your p.o. Then you and your evil bubble machine can make a quick get-away. But be sure to get a decent battery pack for that bloody thing; I'm sick and tired of all those D cells that you keep leaving everywhere! Of course, if you don't wanna join in on the fun, I'm more than willing to take your weekly share of Bowie. love-on, ya!

Good afternoon, all. Looks like I'll have to miss out on the planned abduction of Dave, as me and my bubble machine are still on parole, and any violations would hamper our efforts to later rule the universe. Ramona, you knock my dancing?! I learned from the best, I tell you. Those Danny Terio instructional records and booklets have wowed millions over the years. How do you think I'm paying for college? Besides, Homer hasn't turned a trick in *years*, and he just can't slip into Houseboy Homer anymore. I'm off to brainwashing, uh, I mean class.

Some really adorable pictures of him young and boyish looking. If you want professional help for the Operation "db", kindnapping David, I have some combat and strategy experience and can assist in creating diversions and the sort. Hey Detective, I'm just across the border from you. Perhaps you can share some Detroit area secrets on where to find Daivd Bowie music, etc... Until we chat again..

If we do indeed end up broke in London, I'll just whip out my bubble machine and dance a little jig (the poot?) for some quick cash, as Homer does not like to discuss his seedy past as a Gigilo. He may have a few pig's feet in his closet (and BEARS as well), but he is above all of that these day. BTW, I managed to string together a few words for Dave (sans any rhymes). Now, Ramona, it is your turn to deliver the "merchandise"...

I have a few shots of David at Roseland, but they are taken about 2 or 3 'rows' back. Some of them have them with the Jacket on. They are great pics, but not REAL close-ups.

You know, RM, if you're still interested in that shitty poem, I can help! I got my little rhymin' dictionary here (but I can't find a rhyme for *tasty*, hmmm...). I was thinking that if we run out of money in London, I'm sure Little Butch (proprietor of the Soho Studs) will be more than happy to engage Gigolo Homer's services for a while (especially since his new little mole just looks so damn cute!).

I was looking at the on-line lyrics to Sweet Head, and I disagree with one of the lyrics. It says "With my guitar and Mr. ?Final? We can give you sweet head." I always thought that it was "With my guitar and me saprano we can give you sweet head." Any takers?

Hopefully this simplified version of my address will work! Give a try! After about a half a year in my c.d. possession, and I still think the Buddha of Suburbia is the best Bowie C.D.!

I always prefer Mac (after all, it is the superior computer - David uses one), and would like JPG, TIFF or GIF. I can deal with most of the other formats however. There are instructions given for how to upload a file in Netscape on the submission page. Alternatively, you can attach a picture to an email (using the email option). Every browser is different so it's hard to give an all encompassing answer. Look through the menus until you find something that works. Personally I think the upload option is the easiest.

EARTHLING: Where did you hear this rumour about DOWN UNDER?? Exactly what have you heard? DG, below, rang Paul Dainty and they claim to not know anything about it, he says. I know you can ring Visa and ask them to hold tickets for you if you hear this sort of rumour, but I don't know what sort of seats you get. Does anyone know if this works? Agghh, I hate these rumours. They make me all queezie in the tummy with anxiety about getting good seats apart from anything else. Concerts have stressed me out ever since I was crushed down the front of the '83 show at the Sydney Showground and passed out. They dragged me over the barrier and when I came to I was looking up at the Man for 1 glorious moment. I was then promptly shoved back into the crowd, but miles from the stage where I'd been waiting all day! I sold my push bike to get tickets for that concert and it was a DISASTER. You can't win. Even when you CAN get close to the stage something like that happens - or Bowie'll touch your friend's hand on not yours!!!! Oh no, I'm turning into the Marvin of the guestbook and message board!!! I'll post an uplifting, optimistic message one day... Don't hold your breath however.

Hi people. TRINIA....David Buckley has two books out he has recently written about Bowie. The first is called: THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO THE MUSIC OF DAVID BOWIE published by OMNIBUS PRESS. ISBN: 0-7119-5301-5 Order No: OP 47799. This is a pocket sized book in a series. The second David Buckley book is called: DAVID BOWIE: STRANGE FASCINATION published by LIVERPOOL UNIVERSITY PRESS. This is described as a "cultural biography of the man" focusing on the effect Bowie has on his fans among other things. DARA......I saw your letter in Novembers issue of Q about Jobriath and Bowie:-) Also some of the quotes in that short Bowie promo you mentioned, i.e. Bono and Tina Turner, were taken from the ARENA tribute to David Bowie. (Arena is a multi-selling (mens) magazine). This is an excellent retrospective of Davids career with heaps of messages from famous people about him especially for the issue. It includes some fantastic photos and like a few other magazines that Bowie has been in....this is a must for fans. Arena should be sold at most magazines outlets and they do have backissues of the special tribute to him. Finally, BOWIE IS COMING DOWNUNDER!! Well I certainly hope so anyway:-) I didn't just faint when I heard it's almost definate...I went into a coma for 3 days:-) HOPE HOPE EVERYONE!!

AND SHE SHALL SAY: Hallo from a very wet and drizzly St. Frisky (yeah, California has finally decided to unleash some winter weather on me). Hey Robot Monster, is Gigolo Homer the HB (and I don't mean Huggy Bear, either) still having his hysterical fits? If so, I know a good therapist. Besides, my money is NOT dirty; I always make sure it is freshly laundered before I try to use it on the streets. Hallelujah, those bloody monkeys are gone (they've gone to the 49ers game today, and I'm changing the locks on my door before they come back). Hmm hmm hmm, you know, I thought I was the only one who thought that Bowie's little mole was something more than just a cute facial feature (but modesty prohibited me from mentioning it before; you, on the other hand, are brazen and shameless; what would your dear old mum say?) Sorry everybody, but Bowie is MINE to kidnap on his birthday, or any other day that I shall deem fit (any resistance to this is futile; otherwise I shall have to unleash Ramsey the Demon Driver to deal with you as he sees fit). love-on, ya!

Unfortunately, they're not pointed enough to be used as pointers, but they're OK as waiting-cursors. Will anyone design a tiny Bowiefigure with a pointing arm as a cursor soon???

Hey, thanks Evan. Since my school account is free, they will probably laugh at me, but you're right, I should get a real account. Now, since I've stopped fanning the flames of the "wig" incident, here's something else. That mole. I keep forgetting to mention this, but in my drama literature class, we learned that many stage actors used to paint on those moles to cover up symptoms of syphilus! I'm sure Dave is just above all of that, but the connection still makes me laugh.

Chat not working
If the Java chat is not working, it is likely that you have a problem because you sit behind a firewall. A firewall is a special computer which isolates your network from the rest of the Internet, and only lets through specific types of information. It probably does not know what to do with Java packets. My suggestion is to
  1. Yell at your sysadmin
  2. Cry a little
  3. Yell at your sysadmin again
If they refuse to support Java, you might want to try one of the other chat programs like mIRC or ircle, because they might be more agreeable to supporting IRC protocols (you will probably still need to ask your sysadmins to enable the firewall for chat.talkcity.com).

As an alternative, you could always get yourself a real Internet account with an ISP, who doesn't have conniptions every time you mention Java.

For me its hard to imagine what we could do to pay homage to David on this his half century. What do we mere humans have to offer the most creative, innovative, unusual man in history. Our poems, scribblings, artwork, and other creativities somehow pale drastically in comparison to what we have available from the man we worship. If we do do something it has to be spectacular, tasteful, bizarre, unique, kinky, and tremendously large. Something that shows David and the world that we consider David to be... to be David. On an obsessed note, YES lets kidnap David!!!! Later, MS

Already in the UK we may be seeing the first signs of the Bowie in the media blitz we can expect for his 50th birthday and the arrival of Earthling. In recent weeks, Sky One 1-hour chart programme has featured short Bowie clips on two occasions, and this week there was an entire 4-minute section entitled "Bowie's best". This was played just before they announced the new #1 in their chart (Prodigy with "Breathe"), more or less peak viewing time.

The segment consisted of the following:
Clip from Ashes To Ashes, with the following words superimposed:
"He's the man with more image changes than Madonna - is he a Space Oddity, Thin White Duke, Ziggy Stardust or just a plonker?
Damon from Blur calls him:
"One of my biggest influences".
But Noel from Oasis disagrees:
"He's an old git".

Then they cut to a vox pop, with a young woman saying "I love David Bowie", then a young man going "Yeah, I like David Bowie. Not so keen on him as an actor though".

Then a clip from Under Pressure with the words: "No. 1 in Nov 81".

Then a clip from China Girl, with the following words superimposed:
"Rick Witter of Shed Seven says:
"When he dressed up as a lady he was almost fanciable. So many bands have copied him".
Tina Turner adds:
"He has great magic and charm and he's such a gentleman".

Then they went to another vox pop. First a guy: "China Girl - that's my favorite track by David Bowie". Then a young couple. He says "Blue Jeans", she says "Red shoes". He looks at her disbelievingly, "Red shoes?" and she laughs back "Put on your dancing red shoes" and they both turn back to the camera with a please-edit-us-out smile on their faces.

Appropriately enough, they then cut to a clip from Let's Dance, the red shoes providing a start point.

Then came Modern Love clip, with the following words superimposed:
"Bono from U2 fawns:
"I am his biggest fan - he's the nicest fella from Mars I ever met".


Then another vox pop, with a young woman being asked "Who's your Mr. Universe?" and replying "David Bowie".

They then ended off with a clip from Hallo Spaceboy.

Anyone who in the UK who missed this and needs to see it to be able to go on living, it will be repeated on Sky One tomorrow.

Apart from that, the recent trend on British TV to use Bowie's back catalog for background music continues, with ITV the latest addition, using Fashion to promote some documentary about Princess Diana.

And with two new substantial biographies hitting the stores (not to mention David Buckley's pocket book), David's name is making it's way into the literary sections of newspapers and magazines as the books get reviewed. One review, in the Sunday Times, nodded approvingly at Bowie's last two albums, Black Tie White Noise and Outside. Hey, what happened to TBOS?

Hi Alys, David was totally dressed in Alexander McQueen designs on the VH1 awards so if you can find an outlet for his work you will come across the shirt. Unfortunately I imagine they are not cheap and I think he is a British designer and may not be available outside of the UK.

It was $35.00 Canadian.

BowieManiac, the 'name' and 'password' it wants are the ones you type in when you register with Evan's site. If you 'register' from the main page of 'Teenage Wildlife', it asks you for your 'name' and to type IN a password. Then once you HAVE registered, you vote using THAT password that you choose when you registered! So go try to register, and take it from there! Bye bye, Hel

Coolness!!

I'll have to refrain from using my rubber hose for a while (I'll need it to be nice and firm when I bop Bowie; these things must be done right the first time or sticky complications arise). But I'll have to save up to by the really good bubble formula for my bubble machine, since I don't want to chafe Bowie with those cheap restraints that Ramsey sent to me. love-on, ya!

My evil twin will be selling them tonight at the Upsville concert. She's going to be in the booth next to Hel's coke stand (sorry, that should read refreshment stand). Hope to see everybody there tonight (well, maybe not since my eyes will be glued to the stage once he gets on it). love-on, ya!

Ok, I've found the January 1983 issue of "Trouser Press" with Iggy Pop's "autodiscography". He speaks about his albums up to and including "Zombie Birdhouse". This is what he says about the mix on "Raw Power": "On 'Raw Power' I thought I'd clean up the sound, make it a little more palatable. A little known fact: I produced it myself. Most people think David Bowie did, but the credit says 'produced by Iggy Pop' - which is why it's such a great album. I produce myself very well when I get the opportunity. The mix was very hot, the sort of thing you'd hear on radio from U2 10 years later. For some reason DeFries found it unacceptable. I had to have somebody remix, so I had David do it. He remixed every song but 'Search and Destroy', on which I demanded to keep my original mix because I loved the song so much. The basic complaint about my mix was that there were too many highs in the sound, but it got me excited; it's like a cup of coffee in the morning, y'know? David's remixes were the best he could do under the circumstances. He didn't know my music, and it was a one-day remix. He didn't do a bad job. He got his name on the record." That's it.

That particular song cracks me up, and I swear its the same music as 'Scream Like a Baby'. Hi, Emilio. Would you please go over to the Message Board sometime and repost that message that we think was authentically David (about the face lift) for Twig? She really wants to see it. Thanks. EVAN: so you're going to see my good friend Patti! Have FUN, but bring a warm coat. It's COLD here in the East!

Hi all... I have not written in a long time. I do check in periodically, it takes forever to read through all posts. I picked up the "Telling Lies" cd yesterday from a local alternative cd store, I had to order it but it only took a couple of days to come in. I like it, it's not fantastic, but it is Bowie. Has anyone heard the Bowie bootleg called "Lust For Life"? It was recorded off the soundboard at three diffferent shows: Phoenix Festival July 18th 1996, Wembly Arena 18th nov. 1995 and Loreelel Festval June 22 1996. Set list: Hereoes,Stranger When We Meet, Lust For Life, All The Young Dudes, White Light White Heat, Moonage Daydream, Look Back In Anger, Man Who Solt The World, Strangers When We Meet, Halo SpaceBoy, We Prick You, Teenage Wild Life, Look Back In Anger, (new song?) and Young Girl. I have not purchased it yet, if anyone has heard it let me know if the quality is any good.

Hi, Evan and everyone. About Iggy Pop's "Raw Power": as far as I know, if there is a Bowie mix of "Search and Destroy", it never saw the light of day. I think it was in "Trouser Press" that I read that Iggy asked "Search and Destroy" not to be tampered with, as he loved the song so much, so it's the only track on "Raw Power" that remains as nature intended it. You'll notice it has a lot more trebel than the other tracks. Iggy says he likes that sound, "it's like a cup of coffee". However, I'm curious to hear "Rough Power" as well. And please, stop discussing David's wig!!!! It's all my fault!!!

What's all this I hear about David wearing a pig? I do recall him holding one once, but wearing one? I should think that would be very uncomfortable. Especially va large pig; it would tend to flatten him somewhat. And although pigs aren't all that smelly apart from the manure, I would think that wearing a pig would seriously inhibit David's breathing. And shouldn't he be opposed to wearing animals? What about animal rights? You never know; he could be walking down the street wearing that pig, and someday somebody could come running up to him with one of those buckets of red paint, and, WHAMMO! I just don't understand why he would want to wear a pig. I -- What? You said WIG, not PIG? Oh. That's very different. NEVERMIND.

Evan, Iggy said this about Raw Power in a recent interview:

"Bowie's mix isn't bad. It's polite. He mixed it the way he heard it."

Apparently, he has plans to remix the album, which shows his true feelings on the matter.

USA - Thursday, November 14, 1996 at 15:17:51 (EST)
Earthling,
  You mentioned earlier the alternate Raw Power, sans Bowie. This was actually called Rough Power, and were the original tracks before Bowie got to mixing them. I remember a quote at some point from Iggy, where he said something along the lines of "that orange-haired bisexual really fucked me up" referring to you-know-who.
Rabid Stooges fans will tell you that Rough Power is infinitely superior to Raw Power, representing more of the real Stooges sound. However, you'll note (being from NZ), that the ads for Nike (I think it was, or Adidas) during this year's Olympics used the Bowie mix of Search And Destroy.

Thank you so much for having something for all of us who consider David Bowie one of the greatest people on earth. I especially enjoyed the song lyrics. However, on the song "Within You", the second line in the first verse is "You starve and near exhaust me."

I was the one who began the discussion about whether or not David is wearing a wig. I'm not out of my mind, it's just that I read about it in a Brazilian music magazine. I e-mailed the editor about it and he said he can't be sure whether he read it in "Q" or "Vox". I don't have any of these magazines, so maybe you can check it out just out of curiosity, to see whether it was a misunderstanding on his part. I did add something about David's hairline, but then I could be wrong. Hel has proof that it's his real hair after all, so I think the discussion can end here. But I'll keep you posted about anything that's published about Bowie in the Brazilian press.

Sorry I missed you when you where there ,B.Maniac!I am writing again because nobody answered my question about the Telling lies single being available ir not in America!PLEEEASE,can somebody tell me?By the way,those who think that David-gorgeous-natural-hair is wearing a wig or a hair piece of some kind,must be out of their minds!If that sort of wig was available,don't you think all the bold men out there would be wearing it as well?NO WAY,David is not wearing a wig!!!!!!!!

Right now Im in school, so Im kind of bored. Dont know what to write, so Im gonna tell you about a dream I had last night. Dont know if you might find it interesting, but anyway... I dreamt that I went to a db-concert. I tried to catch his attention, but he did not look at me. After the concert I was very sad and depressed. I thought that David did not like me, and I did not want to live anymore. Suddenly I was in a very fine hotel. I stood in front of a long staircase. Then I saw The Man Himself going up the stairs. I couldnt think of anything intelligent to say, so I just said: "David"!. He turned around and looked at me. Slowly he went down the stairs. I starred at him and thought:"I want him to like me. If he does, my live will make sense again".Then David was standing in front of me, and I closed my eyes. He gave me a gentle kiss. I was so happy, I thought I would die. David did not say a word,he just looked at me. Then he turned around an went up the staircase. I looked after him. Before he went away,he turned around again and smiled at me. He smiled like a little boy. Then he diappeared... Yes, that was my dream... I hope it will come true one day. Love from

BOWIE NEWS NO. 2: Posted by Mike Alford on the Bowie Newsgroup::: The following is cut and pasted from Adam Curry's web page of daily sleaze notes (November 8th): :::Meanwhile, rocker DAVID BOWIE is said to be returning to Buddhism on his new album. The singer/songwriter studied the religion when he was a teenager in Brixton, South London. And now, as he approaches his 50th birthday in January, Bowie has turned to his early interests to find meaning in his life. In doing so, he's also penned new songs for his forthcoming album EARTHLING, including one entitled SEVEN YEARS IN TIBET - also the title of BRAD PITT's new movie, based on HEINRICH HARRER's autobiography. A Bowie source in New York says, "I don't think this signals a move towards Buddhism - David's just interested in the religion again." Other tracks on the new album, the first Bowie will produce alone since DIAMOND DOGS in 1974, include his recent Internet release TELLING LIES with British dance music star A GUY CALLED GERALD. There's also room for a little regression with a reworked version of TIN MACHINE track BABY UNIVERSAL. Earthling is expected to be released in February.::: Trinia's comment: FEBRUARY???? I CAN'T WAIT THAT LONG!!!!!!!

BOWIE NEWS NO. 1 Posted by Mike Alford on the Newsgroup.T he following is taken from the NY Post web page of November 12th: If you saw David Bowie's superb performance at the VH1 Awards, then you probably want to see him again soon. Maybe that's why photographer Albert Watson has been on a tear shooting the former Ziggy Stardust for everything from the cover of an upcoming GQ to an upcoming Arena to an upcoming Sunday Telegraph in London. Mr. Bowie is back to his long crew cut and will be photographed doing impersonations of Sir John Gielgud, dressed completely in Alexander McQueen's designer duds.

Not ONE answer to my question about the workings of our mutual obsession (11/5/96)? I suppose that's interesting in itself, don't you think? The message board on the official site reminds me of a bizarre Pentecostal worship service, complete with demonic manifestations. This guestbook also has a religious feel. I guess that, like more inanimate idols, "Bowie" doesn't know we exist, doesn't care, doesn't hear, can't make our lives better, can't respond to our "love". I find being here very sad. It stirs up old feelings of anxiety and frustration over missing out in some way. Know Thyself.

For those of you who are interested, a local record down the street from me has a couple of copies of the 1976 Rolling Stone w/Bowie on the cover, fairly cheap. E-mail for details. Ramoana, Homer and Superchick are doing very well, thank you, as they help me prep for my soils exam tomorrow. Yeah, I never knew Pat Boone could rock like that. Wonder if old Debbie was one of the illustrious 180? But you haven't heard anything until you download the internet only version of Tammy Faye Baker's remake of "Queen Bitch"! And I heard a rumor that Bob Dole, Newtie, Wally George and Pat Buchanan are laying down tracks for "We Are Hungry Men". Can anyone confirm this, please?

Dublin, Ireland - Tuesday, November 12, 1996 at 16:15:42 (EST)
This morning on the radio, I heard an interesting song. I didn't catch the title of it, but it's something like "Who Lives In This Neighbourhood" I think, by a band called Space. Included in the lyric is something like
"In number 10 lives Aladdinsane
He thinks we're on the verge of the Third World War".

The song basically name-checks a variety of cultural and musical icons (like Mr. Miller, the serial killer), most of which I didn't get (and I doubt very much that anyone other than Bowie fans would get the reference to World War 3).

I don't know very much about Space. I've heard them on the radio a few times without them making a very big impression on me (till now). I think they're a new British band. Anyway, it's a good pop song.

In that interview David stated that Contamination would be the title of this next Hypercycle album

Hallo Robot Monster. How're Homer and Superchick? I just got that copy of Changesfourandaquarter that you mailed to me. Simply stunning. I think the A Guy Called Gerald mix of *Please Mr. Gravedigger* is absolutely faboo. Pat Boone's remake of *John, I'm Only Dancing* is better than you might think, and the Vienna Boys Choir's version of *Sex and the Church* positively smokes! I'm still waiting for that Kermit D.

The concert was a part of Davids summmer festival-tour.He played at many European festivals. Talking about Balingen,I was standing in the first row in the middle.Maybe you noticed me,I was the girlwho was screaming loudest... I wanted David to notice me, but I kind of did not succeed in it. Actually I got a rose and two cigarettes from him, but he did not really give them to me but threw it to a group of girls, whom I grabbed it out of their hands... Well, Im sort of a desperate girl...

I am currently obsessed with DB and I am wondering if anyone knows where I could get posters of him, especially of him as he is on album covers such as Hunky Dory and The Man Who Sold The World and anywhere where he's looking effeminate. I have a small shrine up to him but it only consists of the liners of my tapes. :) Also, are there any Bowie fanatics out there who are also Labyrinth fanatics, Labyrinth being the 1986 fantasy film that he starred in (and stole the show)? And if so, do you L fanatics have Labyrinth: A Photo Album? I am searching for this book. And if anyone wants to rhpasodize about and analyze DB's early stuff (Space Oddity, Hunky Dory, THe Man... etc.), drop me a line and I'll see if my curiosity is piqued.

I remember a reissue of Iggy Pops album "RAW POWER" was released under a slightly different title. There was a little picture of Bowie on the bottom with a circle and line going through it like those No Smoking signs. Underneath that it said something like "NO BOWIE GAURANTEED". The liner notes said something about how the original mix by Bowie ruined the overall effect of the album and took away the intensity of The Stooges. So they put it out with the mix sounding the way it should have been without Bowie. Anyway I thought it was a little harsh on David as I think he was only trying to help at the time, (appaently Iggy had mixed everything onto one track). But the notes made it out that Bowie ruined the album....which couldn't really be the case as it did become a classic.

On another subject, that REBEL REBEL video, I did hear it was pulled at the last moment.

my copy of 'telling lies' is plain blue and really quite unexciting.....does anybody have a decent quality tin machine bootleg with their cover of The Pixies' song 'debaser' ?....i think that's a great song. Speaking of The Pixies i read an interview with their lead singer - frank black (in a magazine called 'guitarist') who claimed one of their songs on the 'bossonova' album was going to be called 'is she dave?' and that they were thinking of getting db to play the saxophone on the track. of course it never happened and the song was called 'is she wierd ?'.....i think it's probably true since reeves gabrels and frank b. seem quite good friends (gabrels being thanked on frank b.'s first solo album - 'los angeles' - and of course f.b's appearance on 'the sacred squall of now'. I bought iggy pop's album 'new values' which i think follows after 'lust for life' and it's very good. It has the original version of 'don't look down' which is superior to db's on 'tonight'.

Me again. "Glouchester four piece the NILSON BOMBERS have declared a weekness for David Bowie, and it certainly shows on the melodic craftiness of "I'm Not Built For This", (ALM). Nice."

Apparently there are heaps of references to Bowie on this album. Does anyone know the name of the band?

Hello. A few months ago a video was released in the U.K. called, DAVID BOWIE REBEL REBEL.This is advertised as a "Rare live 1978 TV performance for the first time on video". It is a 40min live set lifted from the long running German rock show Musik Laden. Songs included are SENSE OF DOUBT, TVC15, STAY, JEAN GENIE, REBEL REBEL and an apparently very good version of HEROES. This video was released from MASTERVISION and is supposed to include a free C.D. of the live performance. Now I have checked here in New Zealand and the record stores where I am can't order imports from the U.K. saying that I must contact the source or point of sale directly. Does anyone know of this video and how or I can get hold of a copy? It defianetly exists because I have the ad right in front of me. SOURCE: NME.

Cold here too, PA USA - Sunday, November 10, 1996 at 21:12:29 (EST)
On a slightly different topic, I was doing some searching for the name Alessandro Moreschi, the last castrato and only castrato to be recorded. There is an eerie similarity between the fame castratos recieved in earlier centuries and the fame of what this century calls 'androgynous' rock performers (including Bowie). Perhaps human kind has always had a fascination with, how would my mother say it, 'different' people. Anyway if anyone is interested a recording of Alessandro Moreschi does exist, I believe it is entitled, appropriately, "The Last Castrato" OPAL CD # 9823, I haven't a copy but I'm going to find one for my own curiousity's sake. Don't get on my case, just another perspective, imagine in an indirect way David Bowie has always had fans.

Hello all! How do you like the snow Ilsa!? It's been a bad weekend here in Frostburg... not just the snow but someone died friday night in a dorm room (too much alcohol) As for the 33, Noam, I dunno it's just a number that seems to pop up a lot in life and I seem to see it. Take for instance a lot of books. There are a lot of references to the #33 in books when authors could have picked any number there is and they have picked #33. If you want my list of occurances ask and I'll try to compile it and e-mail it to you. As for a great interview of Bowie. The Maryland Public Television station (MPT) showed what appeared to be a very well put together interview with db but unfortunately I was actually not in the mood that night to watch it. My mother told me that it was on and I watched about 10 min of it. I wish I knew what it was called and the exact date it was on but unfortunately i didn't pay attention to that either. If anyone has a clue what I'm talking about save me now cause I'm drowning in ignorance

Hallo all, Ramona you are studette extraordinaire with the anagrams. I was too lazy to tackle the second set. The quote is from a new video I just bought: Black Tie White Noise. It is a n hour long interview interspersed with mostly some dubbed video footage that seems to have been done specifically for the vid, but Jump They Say has a real video. It also has some live studio footage, including of a sickly looking Mick Ronson. I enjoyed it very much. Bowie is so articulate, I could cull a thousand quotes just from that interview.

The *Pulling Hair* b-side was put out in a VERY limited edition pic disc (I sing back-up);). By the way, Bowie looked absolutely ravishing in that dress for the SNL performance (I haven't seen it in years, but it's a visual that's hard to forget).

What's this "Pulling Hair" the B-Side of TL? Is that the differance between the versions? 'Cause I want it!!! Evan - What tracks do you have on the single? I really hope it's Lou's Satelite... I really like it, just as long it is different from the original, 'cause there isn't much point of doing exactly the same song again... I want Outside/Earthling style. Ta-ta.

Dara and Matt, I don't know how EITHER of you figured out the lyrics, especially the ones at the end, of The King of Stamford Hill. Smells like daisies...I love Satellite of Love. More of the outerspace theme--satellite's gone way up to Mars. No doubt, Bowie will have changed everything about the tune except the lyrics, if it's to fit in with his latest style. Madame Sands, Ilsa's my gran xxxooo.

Hi all. The store where I ordered TL still haven't got it. They say they'll have it at the end of the week so the trashathon has been postponed until then. And Matt, my hearing is not better than yours: I just listened to the same bit over and over and made a best guess. I don't know how you managed the rest of that song.

Hi, Trinia. We Brazilians also get to see old shows, so I was able to tape David's appearance on "Saturday Night Live" - and Tin Machine's, too! It's about time somebody released a video compilation of Bowie's television appearances. A documentary would also be welcome, provided it was done the right way, interviewing the right people, which I don't think would be possible. Bowie would never allow a documentary which included interviews with people such as Tony de Fries and Angie. As for Bowie's wig, I have e-mailed the magazine's editor for more info. Incidentally, I also write for "International Magazine", so he will answer for sure. I'll let you know when I have more details.

I almost FORGOT (sorry for the typos!!), I saw a rerun of Saturday Night Live (1979) last night (advantage of living here, we get to see OLD shows!! LOL). David was the guest together with Klaus Nomi (?).. He sang three songs: TMWSTW, TVC15 and Boys Keep Swinging. It was the weirdest performance I've ever seen!!!! Any thoughts about this ??

Hello All! I saw this interesting post on the Message Board from GRANT:" Bowie's record company have recently told Steve Pafford at 'Crankin' Out', that Bowie has decided to call to album 'Earthling'. As well as the four known tracks (Little Wonder, 7 days in Tibet, Telling Lies and Baby Universal) two more have been revealed. 'The Battle of Bricken' (?) and 'Satellite of Love'. Whether this is the Lou Reed song remains unknown." Great! Does anybody know when CO#5 will be out? Thanks, Trinia

But, I can't access my email from here...sigh... Anyway, what's with this new Bowie book mentioned..To The Brink, or something?? I'd like to know details. Anyone in the UK willing to get me a copy, for a trade?? Email me if you are. EARTHLING, I got your tape and fanzine! They're great. I'm surely going to wear out the tape at the rate I'm listening to it. I would join people in the chat, but this being not my computer, I can't download GlobalChat...pity....

Madame Sands, Tin Machine was rereleased in 1995 with the bonus track Country Bus Stop. The album was orignally on EMI, but by 1995 Bowie was with Virgin, who put out the re-issue.
Ramsey (ramsey@dca.net)
Philly, PA USA - Saturday, November 09, 1996 at 17:47:00 (EST)
The tin machine album I have is the same one that is shown on this board (I finally took the time to go through everything, I know it was long over due but hey its more fun to ask questions) except that it has a bonus tract of the bus stop (live country version) that is not mentioned. Do I then have something different. It is a canadian release through Virgin and EMI. I was chatting with Ilsa this afternoon. I never realized many of you are related sort of kind of and have been communicating in one way or the other. Ilsa is a wonderful lady and most deserving of the title O Holy Wise One. Another question I have a bootleg album that is listed on the Unofficial Discography in the bootleg section but is not on this sites, unofficial section. Is bootleg and unofficial not the same thing. Clue me in. Adieu

Hey Melanie33 (What's the 33 for?) the extra track is Get Real, which is also on the UK release of Strangers When We Meet. I haven't have the pleasure of hearing it, though. And "Wham bam thank you ma'am" is not realy a db line, BowieManiac, it's more of a common phrase meaning "A one night stand", I believe. Ta-ta.

The "rug" issue is a valid one, indeed. Personally, if Dave is sporting a wig, rug or hair plugs, IMO, I'd prefer him to go natural. I'm sure he dyes his hair in order to hide that gray. Baldness, the ultimate change.

Matt, Fortunately I do remember seeing that episode of th Young Ones! ..... David wearing a wig? Yeah ok... whoever thinks that must be having a little of what major tom was having. Speaking of major tom my mother likes the song Space Oddity and i was talking to her about it last weekend when I was home and you know she never knew that the song wasn't just about an astronaut lost in outer space (kinda like Apollo 13) I told her about the drugs and major tom being on drungs (mostly lines from Ashes to Ashes like 'little green wheels are following me. Oh no! not again' (at least I think that's the words I still don't own Scary Monsters) OK BIG Question now... I was on that link from the contest (CD NOW) and found a japanese import of OUTSIDE that says it has one more track than the other releases... anyone know anything about this???

Have you all heard Iggy's rendition of 'Tonight'? It's fair superior to David's version on his 'Tonight' album. Deservedly so, I believe that it should have its own entry; that is to say, it's rating should be disjoint from that of the Bowie version. Voice your support, please.

"International Magazine", a Brazilian music magazine, has written that "David Bowie has been wearing the same wig for years". I had never heard about that, but come to think of it, David did have a receding hairline which looks different now. And his hair has been more or less the same since the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert. What do you know about it?

Yesterday I bought the TELLING LIES cd-single. It contains the 3 tracks(Feelgood Mix, Paradox Mix, Adam F Mix). The cover is in black and white. It's a limited edition release. On the cover is a picture of a shadow, that spreads his arms. Under the picture is written: 'Still from video piece 'Eight Segments' 1974 by David Bowie. Design and image manipulation by Denovo, 1996.' Does anyone have information on this 1974 Bowie-video?

Another Young Ones Bowie reference. At a funeral, after the words Ashes To Ashes were spoken, Ric cuts in with "Funk to funky, we know Major Tom's a junkie". The entire series is available on video through the BBC, but I am not sure if it is available in the U.S.A.

Hallo All! Earthling, I have a good pic of Bowie and Ng in the sand together from that China Girl video. It was in the Serious Moonlight Tour Book. I guess I could photocopy it and send it when I send you something. Madame Sands, I have heard David Bowie 1966...I have it actually. I thought that it was pretty good, and was a neat picture of how David got started in the music biz. Um, what else can I say? sorry bruce, I have no idea on what is wrong with your global chat. I hope you get it to work though. Hallo to everyone else! Also, Earthling...aka Bowie's sax ;-) I just sent you a pic...I hope you like it.

Before, he reinstalled the Java chat though, I couldn't get any of the other type sto work, even though (I think) I d/l and installed all the apprpriate hardware. I'll ask a friend who might know and get back to you if he has any insight.

Earthling, You know I like the Younge Ones. We got to see that great show first at midnight on Sundays on MTV so it was hard to be able to stay up that late on a school night to see it. That was way back in the late 80 just after they were out in England (around 84 if I recall correctly) then they were playing it recently (about a year ago or so) on Comedy Central. I thought I had seen all of the episodes but I don't recall the one you mentioned. It's ashame cause I would have loved it. Do you know if there is a way to get the shows on Vid? And what is this about the writer writing a book? do e-mail me and tell me any info you got on it. Evan! Great quality on that Bridge photo! I'm still waiting for my import to get in! I hope it gets here before the Holidays! I will be hitting a lot of major record stores in B-more then to see what I can order. Any fellow Western MD people feel free to contact me and I'll see if I can look for stuff for you too! Take care all!

Evan...well I don't know if this is significant enough to put into your Literary thingymajig.....but Stephen King wrote a book called The Dark Half about a writer whose evil character comes to life. There was a short line written about how the writer looked like David Bowie, which is good for any character in a book :-) Also Ben Elton(the creator of English comedy series The Young Ones and Black Adder), apparently mentions David abit in his first book....unfortunately I can't remember what it's called, but I have it on good authority from a fellow Bowie fan who read it. Oh and speaking of The Young Ones, I don't know if you saw it in America but there was a great episode where Neil the hippie is high on pot or something and he thinks he's in space...he start singing Bowie songs about space starting with Space Oddity.."The palnet Earth is blue maaan...and I don't know what to do..." Quite funny. P.s Alys a.k.a Bowies' bed ;-)...I'm afraid there were no raunchy pics of Geeling and Bowie on the beach with this article....just two very tame ones with them smiling at the camera....DAMN!!

'fed up' is the alternate 'posting' name of a FORMER regular on the poor abused Message Board, who left after the Ballroom tours, when the MB started getting so stupid! 'fed up' always pokes fun at people using Bowie lyrics. He came back, apparently, to see if it was worth the trouble and to try to revive spirits there. Last summer, he had posted a hilariously funny thread (a joke) which was a bogus 'review' of the 'secret' concert David had done at 'Upsville'. He worked all the MB regulars into 'roles' for the 'concert' and all in all, it was an amusing joke. Most of the creatures (those silly college boys) who are currently terrorizing that Board have never heard of either 'fed up' or the 'Upsville' concert. So, I hate to burst the bubble of hope, but the only concerts I know of are the potential London shows in December, and the March Pacific tour and then Japan after that! (sob) no news YET of David playing back here anytime soon! His art show, however, is rumoured to be coming to NYC in January! Sorry to bring disappointing news, but Upsville is just a joke! Hel

helen2, the reason why you get references to 'the monkees' when you search for bowie is because one of the members of their band was called davy jones, and apparently that's one of the reasons why bowie changed his name ( i think also tho .i could be very wrong that unless he changed his name he would not have got an 'equity' card - which you need in the u.k for acting professionally )......am i a fountain of knowledge or what? bye bye love..................

Hello Everyone! HEL: You could find that article on the News PAge of the Outside web site. Anyway, I'll just post the whole article here: Yes, a Filipino guy won the contest. I haven't seen the paiting either, eventhough I live here... No news about it on the local papers too. Though months before, the record stores were giving out flyers about the contest, with the rules and other info about it. Cheers, Trinia ----------------- Bowie News: International Art Competition YOUNG PHILIPPINE ARTIST WINS DAVID BOWIE "OUTSIDE" INTERNATIONAL ART COMPETITION March 4, 1996 -- Joseph Lee Alviar, 19 year old art student at the University of Santo Tomas, Philippines was elected as the winner of the international "Outside" art competition sponsored by BMG Entertainment International. The decision was reached on February 20th in Paris with David Bowie, Austrian actionist Hermann Nitsch and Christoph Ruecker, VP International Marketing, BMG Entertainment International as the final jurors. The 11 pieces of art from the winners of the various participating territories were exhibited at the gallery "Le monde de l'art" in Paris, with most of the artists in attendance. The event took place one day after David Bowie performed live and accepted a Lifetime Achievement Award at the annual "Brits" awards in London, and coincided with the last date of the European leg of the "Outside" world tour. Given the outstanding quality of all submitted art pieces, it was tough to decide on only one winner. The winning 20" x 30" color painting titled "Destruction of Man" was picked based on its formal integrity, pictorial intensity, and of course, on the connection with the contents of David Bowie's latest album "Outside." The young artist himself, who, unfortunately was not present in Paris, had described the painting as follows: "The art piece represents the gore of the album's contents, death and the destruction of man. The crime artist creeps into the inside of his medium, or can we say victim!? By the use of tubes and syringes he extracts life and replaces it with death. With no remorse seen in his eyes, just the excitement of seeing pain and suffering. The new generation of artists acts like gods, not because they create but they destroy." In his presentation speech David Bowie acknowledged that the works submitted "are absolutely extraordinary", and admitted that "...it was very, very hard to come to a decision. But both Hermann and I came to the same choice, which is extremely fortunate." Special mention and credit was also given to the art pieces by the winners from South Africa (Elli Garb), Japan (Yasuharu Yoshizaki) and the UK (Charlotte Baker-Wilbraham). The paintings and sculptures of all eleven finalists are currently on their way to New York where thay will be exhibited in front of media and interested gallery owners in the near future. End.

Ever wanted to know what the actress in the "China Girl" video thought about doing that scene with Bowie and what she thought of Bowie full stop? Well I found an article printed last year in my collection titled "KIWI ADMITS BOWIE LOVE AFFAIR". Here's part of the article about Geeling Ng: "My agent called me to audition for the China Girl part in the video and I went to the Sebel Town House and met up with David, his director David Mallett and Davids personal assistant Coco. The guys asked me to take all my makeup off and then told me I had the job." For the next two weeks Ng filmed the video with her idol and before they got to lie on top of each other naked in the sand of Longreach Beach at six in the morning, they had made love in real life. "He was was a gentle, wonderful man and I had an infatuation with him which I probably thought was love then but which now has turned to admiration for him." Before he left for his Serious Moonlight tour of Europe, he gave her a gold watch which she still wears. "I thought then maybe he's just the sort of guy who always dates his leading ladies, but about a month later while I was still on cloud nine and he was in London getting ready for the tour, he phoned me at home in Sydney." Bowie asked Ng, who was born in Auckland (New Zealand), to join him in Paris and tour with him. "He was the sweetest person to me all the way through France, Germany and Sweden and we shared some some mad partying times as well as some quiet relaxing moments together. The trouble was though, everyone else was busy and I had nothing to do. I knew by the end of the tour it was time for me to go." Bowie has contacted Ng several times, but shes seeing someone in Auckland and is looking forward to opening a restaurant or being rediscovered. Well that's the story about Geeling Ng the pretty Chinese girl in the then infamous video clip China Girl. Source: The Dominion or The Evening Post.

Bowie was the only reason I went to the Bridge School Show (selfish little thing that I am). Did you see the Saturday or Sunday show? I could only make it to the Sunday show (no car, and the train didn't run that late) but my consolation is that he did do an extra song on Sunday. Somebody somewhere has to have a copy of that Carson show performance; it's amazing what some people have tucked away.

Anyway, my little literary Bowie reference is in Coupland's "Generation X" (short mention of how the narrator's brother found himself in an elevator with Bowie and couldn't think of a thing to say). It was mentioned below about starting up some kind of tape trading thing; I think it's a great idea. Also, anybody have any idea how to order an import copy of "Telling Lies" (I STILL haven't heard it!)?

I remember seeing this either here or on the 'official' site (davidbowie.com) I recall that someone from the Philippines WON the thing and DAVID was one of the judges. Can anyone remember where to look to find this? Evan, do you have it somewhere? Does anyone remember seeing it elsewhere? I recall the names of the runners-up were given, too, and some details about the contest and what would be done with the winning entry....mind like a sieve, that's what I've got here! Help! Hel

Hallo everyone! EVAN, great idea to start collecting the literary references we've turned up so far. But the best one is missing from the list: 'Diamond Nebula' by Jeremy Reed. A few days back, a nice quote about this book's plot from the first edition of Crankin' Out appeared here. A future apocalyptic society based on three icons of the 20th century, Bowie, Warhol and some author (whose name I have forgotten, sorry)...this one sounds wonderfully entertaining, since David and his work are the BASIS for this society: anyway, I think you should list it. (I'm going to order a copy!) Also, someone mentioned 'Rules of Attraction' by Bret Easton Ellis as containig references to David, too. I always like seeing David referenced unexpectedly in fiction, and it keeps happening more frequently. Hallo, Dara, and thanks for all your efforts on our behalf! Let me know if you need help trashing the record shop: I'm in the right mood lately!!! Hel

When I do, I'll send you some good photocopies of the cover, ok? or would you like the email of the guy so you can get your own (assuming that he has more than one copy)? Hallo JEANMARIE! ;) Thank you so much for buying Telling Lies for me. You're so nice! We have to talk trades here...what would you like???

Hello everyone! EVAN: My surname is not Blaylock! :-) it's del Rosario. Excellent additions !!! KEep up the great work!!!! DARA: about the album you were asking about:::David did say during the 1990 Press Conference that he was working on an album to be released next year. The only song I know of from those sessions is LIKE A ROLLING STONE that appeared on Mick Ronson's album. JEAN: Thanks for the offer!! What would you like in return? ALYS: Where did you get the Rolling Stone magazine? Thanks, Trinia

Hi there! I think Bowie's "Buddha of Suburbia" is one of his most interesting albums, but does anyone out there have ANY idea what he's singing on "Untitled no 1" (does even HE know, as he didn't even give it a title)?

Hi everybody! I've got 2 news that can interest you I think : First there is going to be a new boot CD from KTS after the live.inside & it's called Lust for life ( you can check it out at KTS site http://www.kst.it in the coming soon part)but it isn't out now. Apart from that, Bowie gave an interview to a french magazine called Rock&Folk in which he says that Outside will be some sort of a theater piece made by Bob Wilson & Brian Eno & Himself ; it will take place in Saltzburg Festival in the year 2000 !!! I don't think the tickets are sold now! bye.

Interesting Tidbit: I just got home from seeing Marilyn Manson. and what did they play before they came out? DIAMOND DOGS! While they were setting up the stage, they played Sweet Thing through Big Brother. It was really odd because as they were coming out Big Brother was still playing. What an odd scene, but it was great. I'm tired as all hell, sleep for me. bye!

Hallo eveyone, I hope you do not find the following information too boring and inconsequential (because I tend to) but... I was reading an article about Peter Beard, the African photographer credited with discovering Iman. It says that he "accosted" her on a street in Nairobi; her family was in exile from Somalia (father a doctor and diplomat). Beard offered to pay for a year of her college tuition if she would pose for photos. Soon after she came to New York to begin modeling. She says that Beard really hyped her, telling everyone she was a 6 foot jungle princess, but she's only 5'9" (that's a direct quote, for whoever was speculating about her height) and from an educated urban family . The article also mentions that she is married to "rock star David Bowie". See, it was mildly pertinent, for those of you who want to know about every single Bowie reference in print :-). November issue Vanity Fair (no pictures of the Bowie's sadly).

OK Dara, you must have better hearing than me, because I just could not make out the King of Stamford Hill lyrics (well the rude bits I could). I picked up another Reeves album released last year today, A Night In Amnesia, by him and David Tronzo (a guitarist who has worked with many people before, including John Cale). Sadly Bowie himself doesn't appear on the album, but the "outsider" artwork, owes a lot to 1. Outside.

Well, I just finished watching The Man Who Fell To Earth, and I must say, that movie was really sad...when he was talking about his children being "Like children...their just like children.." and then you could see the tears welling up in his eyes....I felt so sorry for him. Poor David. :) But it was a really interesting if not strange film. And David was wonderful ofcourse, with his seductive voice and everything. :) Well, goodnight, all. Love to David and everyone else from me!!!

Hi folks. Well, I've been going spare here trying to track down Telling Lies. The shop where I ordered it said they won't have it til Thursday. So my wife went into town looking for it, but all the stores said they wouldn't have it til the end of the week (and one of them confirmed that there are two versions). But I know it was definitely available last Saturday, because an Irish Bowie fan I know bought a copy. So: bottom line, I still haven't got or heard it, so I can't answer any of your questions. That stuff about only 3500 copies has started me hyperventilating. That store where I ordered a pile of copies better come through for me (it's their fault I relaxed and didn't hit the stores earlier myself). If they don't, I'll probably use my refund to buy a hatchet and smash the store up! Anyway, I'm rambling, so I better stop. But before I do, Bowie said in an interview he was 5' 10". Which makes him 2" smaller than me, which makes me feel weird. Course Iman is probably taller than both of us.

Hi all. Don't know if you have heard of this guy, he is supposed to be pretty well known and English magazine RECORD COLLECTOR refer to him when they need to confirm Bowie facts. His name is MARSALL JARMAN and he is advertised as the Bowie specialist. He has stacks and stacks of Bowie memorabilia and music, some of which are quite rare. I was more interested in the memorabilia which included things like books, telephone cards, press kits, scarfs etc. etc. Anyway if anyone is interested this is how you can contact him: MARSHALL JARMAN P.O.

Netscape likes to complain if you don't personally type anything in your message (e.g. if you just quote the message). However, this is fine. Ignore Netscape's tribulations, and just send the message... make certain to enter something for the subject because Netscape likes to complain about that too :-)

Hallo all, I've been offline on a business/vacation trip for a week. It took me hours to catch up on the guestbook!! Didn't even bother with the official message board (looks like it was a good week to be offline over there). Anyway, in response to Emilio, who kindly provided the transcript of the Bowie interview from a Brazilian journal: I just read the interview that Evan links to on the Telling Lies single page, from Billboard. It seems fairly similar to the Brazilian text. In it Bowie describes I'm Deranged as a jungle sound, explaining that its big in Europe but not in the States. Plus lots more. What's this Noam, you have Telling Lies released in Israel too? Guess we're the unlucky ones here in North America. Any reviews from guestbook regulars??

Was playing around yesterday and came across the Music Central site. If you do a search for Bowie it brings up some very strange albums he is supposed to have worked on including Fudge and the Monkees. There are several explanations for this, either their facts are totally screwy, there is another David Bowie performing out there somewhere or David has been busier than I realised. Here is the address if someome else would like to check it out and let me know if this at least some of this information is correct http://musiccentral.msn.com/Home.htm then got to search and enter David Bowie.

By the way, on the subject of TMWFTE - I always thought that when the contact lenses were fused to his eyes and he couldn't get them off it meant that he would never be able to see if he ever made it back to his own planet ?

I guess I'm responsible for all this talk about a jungle mix of "I'm Deranged". Please don't take everything Brazilian journalists write at face value. "I'm Deranged" indeed was mentioned as a "previously unreleased song in the new David Lynch movie" and it was described as "jungle", but the writer could be wrong on both accounts. Let's wait and see.

Earthling, here is a little snippet from an interview of Slash about David's relationship with Slash's mother, taken from Q Magazine in 1994.

It was bizarre to read that your mother once went out with David Bowie

(laughs) I still talk to David.

Were they ever close to getting married?

I don't know. At that point he was the first guy that came along after my mom and dad divorced, so I can't think I was all that interested or happy.

Do you look up to him, though?

Oh, definately. Now that I'm older and I can take his music to heart in the way that I have, yeah, definately. The guy's a fucking genius. And I worked with him a couple of times.

Cheers,

Only TJN NEVER had a sexual interest to her in the book and there was that nice little sex scene in the movie. (I liked the part when he bit her chin) Earthling.. is there any way you can scan those pics or maybe photo copy that ad and possibly mail it to me. I'd love to see that ad! Sara...Sweet Thing/Candidate and Candidate(Demo) are among my all time fav songs too! Bevan... about the blind bit... It appears that in the book he remain's blind for a long time and they explain so much more in the book. The whole scene in the bar at the end of the movie is but a drop in the bucket compaired to the book. I forget who it was but thank's for the detailed info on Diamond Nebula! I'm working on gettin it now! Still waiting for my cd "Hello Spacecowboy"! Salutations to all!

I was going through my thousands(and I mean thousands) of Bowie articles and clippings to find an obscure piece of information, when I came across four large coloured pages from a magazine called "Juice". This was from 1994 and it was a fashion advertisement for, and I quote, "THIN WHITE DUKE ESSENTIAL SUITS AND WAISTCOATS FOR THE MAN WHO JUST FELL TO EARTH". Basically they got a model who looked similar to Bowie, i.e. tall, thin, chiselled features with blue eyes, to pose with the identical clothes Bowie wore in the movie and on the 1976 world tour. The models hairstyle was the same as were most of the poses from the film, and on one of the pages he even had the exact same ciggerttes sticking out from his waistcoat(Blue packet of Gitanes), as Bowie on the 76' tour. I just think it is interesting that designers should pick his line of wardrobe for a fashion spread. Bowie onced mentioned that the only control he had over "The Man Who Fell To Earth", was the clothes that he wore. Incidentally if you already didn't know, some of those suits were designed personally for David by the mother of Guns N Roses guitarist Slash...and Bowie actually went out with her for awhile during that time. Anyway Bowie says in the Fashion transcript that he's not very fashionable....but judging by this magazine spread(and also the front cover of a Rolling Stone edition on Style), David most certainly does have an eye for fashion and style.......He is sooo cool he's hot!!

And Dara posted something about two different releases, and this was the one with the three songs I've got, so... Should I buy it? This was BMG... What is the difference between the versions? And Robert - What's this? I wanna have it! I wanna have it! What's going on with this singles thing? Can't thy just release one thing properly, with more then just 2 copies and in just two countries?

Newton doesn't go blind in TMWFTE. In the movie the x-ray machine just fuses his contacts to his eyes, so he'll never be able to take them off again. And if I remember the book correctly, Mary Lou has a completely different name and isn't anything at all like she's portrayed in the movie.

Okay, I just checked with a local record shop (independent) and they tell me they are getting in a single from Bowie called "If You're Thinking of Me", which will be released for one week only, and it includes A Guy Named Gerald mix. Anyone have any idea what this is? When I get it, I'll post the info, but as far as I know, it's not "Telling Lies" (which I still have yet to hear).

Hi Alys ! I'll tell you what it sounds like tomorrow !!! Did anyone else recieve a letter from BMG in the UK saying that Telling Lies is only being released through independant record shops in the UK and only 3500 copies will be pressed ? Anyway, maybe this is old news and I'm just out of touch !! but I thought I'd better mention it anyway. I bought my copy this afternoon just in case ....

speaking of Footstompin'-I suppose that you've noticed that, (those of you who've got some musical pitch), its riff is the the basic riff for Fame; David himself admitted that in an interview (I have on tape, too)-you see, John Lennon came into the studio and asked David:"Right!... what should we do?" and David started to get nervous because he was so excited with his idol being with him, so it has popped to his mind and he showed him the Footstompin' riff- and they've started to work on it and the rest is history. hope it was interesting!

Hallo to all of you, earthlings. Thank you for answering my questions on David's early video-clips, and for the information about Jean Genet. Anyway, did you know that while David and his band were performing "Footstompin'" live on the Cavett show, Ava Cherry was doing the Shimmy dance on stage with them, just like the song says? it was pretty funny-I have it on tape.

Those who are using Netscape 2.0 or any other non-W95 browser must be careful when trying to download the "Little Wonder" clips. Both will have their names truncated to "littlewo.mov", so the second one will overwrite the first. You should rename one of them before downloading.

Hallo All! Madame Sands, the Telling Lies CD isn't available in Canada, except perhaps as an import. Maybe you could talk to Dara, and he could order another copy so it goes gold in Ireland :) Earthling, I would come and chat, but I'm just on my way to bed, and god, I am tired. By the way, how can you deal with the MPEG files? I tried downloading the Little Wonder MPEG file twice, and I could never open it. What program do I need to use? I'm using WIN95, by the way. I'd be happy if anyone could help me out. Please email me if you know!!! Thanks.

I know it was supposed to be on tonight, but I missed it...and I really hope it will be on again so I can tape it...anyway, I think that one of the best Bowie songs is Sweet Thing/Candidate on Diamond Dogs...but it's so hard to pick just one song because David has a song to fit every mood and it depends how I'm feeling at the moment!!! :-D Well, I really must go now...hope I can chat with someone soon!! Love to David..... :) P.S. Thanks to Hel for the pictures I downloaded off of the site... It took a really long time, but it was worth it!!!

Hi, just thought I'd mention that this site is nothing short of stunning! Many respects to Evan for his hard work on this constantly informative site. I would like to ask, however, if it would be possible to provide all audio and video in MPEG format, as practically every platform (including mine :) can deal with these files. Best Bowie song? "The Voyeur Of Utter Destruction". Those of you outside the UK who will have missed the live version on the music show "The White Room" are to be pittied! Reeve's Gabrel is at his best ever... other-worldly indeed. Any one interested in a copy, feel from to contact me. - Later...

BOOK: Diamond Nebula Author: Jeremy Reed PUBLISHER: Peter Owen ISBN: 0-7206-0891-0 A fictional surrealistic novel about a strange appocalypse in which the survivors worship David Bowie, Andy Warhol and author J.G. Ballard. Bowie is mentioned on almost every page and is worsipped most of all by the few people left. Interesting book to read. Deals with real-life mixed with fantasy. Reccommended for Bowie fans.

I just bought Peter and the Wolf narrated by David Bowie. It's nice to hear his speaking voice. He gets into it, making up different voices for the characters. Do you think it's wrong to think of a children's program as seductive because of the narrator? I also bought a cd called David Bowie 1966, from when he was still David Jones, there are only a couple of songs in a pop kinda style, but its David's voice. It's like Ziggy meets the Beatles. I was shopping in Canada today and did not see the Telling Lies CD. I'll keep looking. My favorite Bowie song is "John, I'm only dancing" and "Sweet Thing" (The Live version)

Dara, Bowie mentioned Masica on Jay Leno's Tonight Show sometime last year. They were chatting about how Masica was a "mutual driver" for the two of them. I don't know what happened to the guy though, Bowie didn't say. Thanks for the info on the Telling Lies single...I wish Virgin would release some singles of Bowie's. I guess they figure that they won't sell enough copies to be worth it or something. I even had to get the Strangers When We Meet single thru the import. Moondust....

Hi Alys. I believe Canad is in the same boat as the US regarding Telling Lies: it won't be released officially there (by Virgin), but should be widely available on import (from RCA/BMG). Same as Hallo Spaceboy basically. RCA/BMG must be delighted by this reluctance of Virgin to release Bowie singles: it hands them a captive import market on a plate. Noam: I'll post all the details on the singles here as soon as I have bought the singles.

Hi Andrew. Robert Fripp definitely definitely definitely played on "Heroes" (the entire album), and what a marvel he was. Here's what David Buckley says on the subject in his excellent "The Complete Guide To The Music Of David Bowie" published by Omnibus Press:

"Robert Fripp, then ex-King Crimson, was brought in by Eno as lead guitarist and his contribution made for some stirring moments. Eno knew that Fripp would respond best by being surprised into action: "We puts the songs on. These were songs he'd never heard.... He didn't know what the chords were going to do, what the changes were going to be.... He would just launch into them at full speed and somehow navigate his way through them."

Also, according to Bowie, Fripp's memorable playing on the track Joe The Lion was his (Fripp's) "attempt at the blues".

Fripp also played guitar on 6 tracks on the "Scary Monsters" album.

Look out all you rock 'n' rollers. I trust all of us (or at least those of us who live in Europe) are on standby to hit the record stores tomorrow to buy the "Telling Lies" singles. I say 'singles' because I hear two different CDs (with different versions) will be available. I think I've already ordered enough copies to virtually guarantee it'll enter the Irish charts.

Bowie was asked to do an Unplugged for MTV, but they fell out over the setlist. Bowie wanted to stick to the Sound + Vision promise of not playing hits (he wanted just to do current stuff and obscure old stuff), whereas MTV wanted a Greatest Hits show. This was some time in '95, before 1.Outside came out, I'm told. MTV are weird. Everyone else can do unplugged 'obscure' Bowie (STP did Andy Warhol, Nirvana did TMWSTW, Seal did Quicksand), but not Bowie, it seems.

This whole Bowie thing is very entertaining. First saw him in Stoke U.K. on Ziggy tour Aug.72 (prior to that was into Arlo Guthrie!) Lost my ticket stub, but it was 99p to get in, with a DJ 2000-2200 and then DB & Spiders 2200 til 2300 approx. Strobelights, Clockwork Orange intro music, DB got a light for his ciggy from a lucky female fan in front 'row'... Definite highlight of night was outside, after gig when we actually heard one of Stokes finest (policenam-PC) whistling Starman! It changed my life. Went off him though around 76/77. FF to '96 where I think Have not been to Oxford Town is best song in yonks! Over to you, rest of world..

After hearing about the Bridge Benefit concert, I was thinking. It might be pretty cool if Bowie were to do an episode of MTV: UNPLUGGED. Of course, I realize MTV sucks, and Bowie isn't really MTV-friendly, but it would be neat to have a nationally-broadcasted acoustic performance!

Evan, yeah, I was kind of wondering about the ATN news as well. Maybe you could say that the reason why Bowie wanted Too Dizzy deleted from the re-issue of NLMD was because he was revamping it for the new album. Ooh, the prospect of a jungle version of Too Dizzy is so thrilling...

Hey, so does anybody else wonder whether Addicted To Noise got the Earthling "tracks" from Bowie himself, or do they think they just copied it off my page? Maybe I should put up that he's going to do a revamp of "Too Dizzy" and see whether they publish that, haha.

Today I bought the Telling Lies CD, it was available since frirday and features the same three versions as released on the inernet. The cover says its a "limited edition release" but they didn't put much effort in it to make it something special. The cover is the same black and white picture as available on the net. The cover says that this picture is a "Still from video piece Eight Segments 1974 by David Bowie. Design and image manipulation by Denovo,1996." Even thanks for the sound and vision from the Fasion Show.

Titbid for you all. I was going through my videos and saw that I had a programme on one of them called "Full Stretch". This was an English series about a limosine company....and who should they be driving but Mr David Bowie!! Yes he starred in the episode as himself. He was only in a few shots, but I heard he got paid $120,000 to do it. Most of the time all he had to do was pretend to be asleep in the back of the limo. so here's a brief description of the plot: Chauffeur picks Bowie up and goes on about how he's a big fan, Bowie falls asleep while they're driving so chauffeur parks limo to get some food. Car is parked on yellow lines and gets towed away with Bowie in it. They track down limo and find David still asleep after all that's happened. Anyway, I just thought it was interesting to see him playing himself on T.V., even though he was acting like a snobby star who was sort of sarcastic. But ofcourse he was just following the script. One other thing....what's happening to the liber.stanford server? I've managed to download all the video clips except for one and it just keeps telling me the servers down!! Although it could be my server as well.....

OK, I've resigned myself to the fact that I'll never be able to get into one of those chat sites. Alys, I got your message (thanks!), but the computers here can't seem to read it. Do you know what application it was created under (I don't even know if it would make a difference since I have a hard enough time dealing with my electric typewriter let alone computers)? So anyway, about the "what makes a Bowie fan" question. For me it happened nearly 3 years ago during one of my I-feel-a-depression-coming-on phases. I was just a few months away from getting my B.A. in English, and all I really had to look forward to was a job at Disneyland (yes it's true, Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow) and moving back home. Hardly anything to be jubilant over. And then one morning, I woke up with the tune to "Golden Years" in my head, which kind of shocked me since I'd never really listened to his music before (only child, and my mother is convinced to this day that there's something not quite right with the Bowie boy). So I picked up a used copy of "Changesbowie" and hot damn! From that point on there was no turning back for me. Within 3 months I'd bought all his CDs, and practically anything else I could find about him. It was just what I needed to help me get thru all the emotional shit I was going thru at the time. However bad I was feeling, I could always find some song of his to make me feel a hell of a lot better. He's seen me thru both good times and bad since then, giving me reasons to both love life and laugh at its stupidities; thank you David.

Hi, Hel and everyone. Just for the record: the newspaper I got that article from is "Zero Hora", from my home town, so it's a BRAZILIAN newpaper. But the article was written in Portuguese because that's the official language in Brazil (not Spanish, as some people think). And it did mention "I'm Deranged" as a "previously unreleased" song which would be in the new David Lynch movie. And it was described as "jungle" - the English word was used.

I can't get any of the videos!!! About this I'm Deranged, Hel - The way I understood it the reporter just didn't know what he was talking about and reffered to the original version. However another mix can be rather interesting. I just didn't tought of it.

A couple days ago, Emilio posted some interesting material from a foreign newspaper (Portugal or Brazil, I forget which). In it, a mention was made (toward the end) of a version of 'Deranged' with a 'jungle beat'. That led to speculation about a 'remix' of this song. I was listening to the really cookin' version of 'Deranged' on the boot 'Live:Inside' last evening and it struck me that maybe THAT is what was being referenced. The 'live band' really changed the song as compared to the album version, and it could be described as 'jungle beat'. Could this be it? Or IS there a remix we haven't heard about? And what is this rumour that David has a current project going with Trent R.? has anyone heard anything about this? I DID hear he MAY collaborate with Jeff Beck (OK, so most of you are too young to remember Jeff Beck!) Well, I'm off for the weekend! Hel

That's probably where I first heard it, Jenn, but I must say that BTWN is not on my most-played list, so I couldn't tell you. Reeves' album came out in 1995 so it's most likely a re-mix. Bowie doesn't sing for the entire song (Gary Oldman) sings a bit of it. To Belinda: Although I can't say this is my all-time favorite song, I'd have to say "John, I'm Only Dancing." I've had "favorites" come and go, but this one has stood the test of time, so to speak. Others include "Velvet Goldmine" and "Drive In Saturday." Madame Sands, I think my Gran , Ilsa, takes the cake for wisest and most beautiful Bowie fan. Cheers!

Hey Alys, Could you send me that Labyrinth sequel also? Hello to all the new people I've been seeing on here from ALL Over the world! I'm only 22 and I've only been to 3 shows but I still find that Bowie is there for me when I need help... I posted a letter on the Message board a while back about how I was really depressed one night and Rock N' Roll Suicide save me... The line "You're not alone. Just Gimme' Your hands 'cause your wonderful" Literally save my life.. I thoguht of bowie singing that song and reaching out to me like in the Ziggy movie (BTW I got that pic and it's beautiful) I think the best thing about Bowie's music is that he has played in so many styles that there is a Bowie song for just about whatever mood you are in. A lot of my friends were surprised to find that he has as many albums out as he does and that he has fans ALL OVER THE WORLD! And people think Michael Jackson has had a wide spread affect on the world! HA! Hey last note.... keep those book references coming I love finding out about this stuff! (PS. HEY EARTHLING! sorry I haven't chatted for a while. Say hello to everyone in NZ for me!)

Hallo, Nevada. I heard 'Little Wonder' and 'Telling Lies' live at the 4 recent East Coast ballroom shows (this beastly PC has no sound card so I can't hear downloads). Judging from what I heard live, I'd say the style has moved toward 'industrial' and away from simple and melodic. It was very textured....YOW, Patti, what did you think? I can hear these replay in my head, but they are hard to describe!! Josie, you heard them too! Opinions? Hallo Madame Sands: I'm among the older fans but not the oldest one on the Board! That's an interesting question: what draws us together and to Bowie? I was a 'lone fan' for years myself! I'll think about it over the weekend...have a good one, everyone! Hel

JENN, yeah I've dressed as Bowie for Halloween, last year I did the Aladdin Sane/ Ziggy thing with the lightning bolt. My hair was the appropriate color, I'd just dyed it that lovely vermilion shade ;) Ramona, I just sent you the sequel to Labyrinth, write me sometime. I'm a bit depressed right now because I broke up with my boyfriend.

It's such a great song!!!! Thanks again Evan for putting it here. This MP2 format is realy good - good quality, not too big a file. I'm gonna get the videos soon, like I said before, somewhere. But I'm still shocked from this awesome song. And BowieManiac - I'm pretty much sure it is Train Time, altough there were many occations I was wrong about db lyrics. WOW!

I love this page! So nice to see that so many people still appreciate DB. He's better than he's been in a long time, and "1.Outisde" has some tracks I could name as part of my all-time favorites(especially "I'm Deranged"). I saw him live in Oslo in January, and it was great. I'm desperately looking forward to his next albums. One thing, though: A lot of people on this page are wasting time bickering about his ex - Angie. Why bother? She's pathetic, and best left alone. Let's just concentrate on the man himself and his music.

The age fan question...I'm 23, no biggie. I've met some fans at shows who saw tours back to '74. I wish more film footage of those tours existed. I'll never forget one woman I met in Sacramento who had an Aladdin Sane lighting bolt tattooed to her shoulder, since the mid 70's. She told us that to that day (at least 1990), her mother never knew about it, and she never wore a bathing suit in front of her mother! I wish I remembered her name, she was such a riot, talking about all of the shows she'd seen. And she seemed pretty young, although I never asked her age, but I remember her reflecting on how she had cut school to go to a Bowie show. Oh yeah, she was was NY or NJ and had an original thick accent. You out there?
