Check out the news!
Well, well, well. David gives us another surprise for his 50th birthday! So, are the songs really all new? Or do they exist on bootlegs some place?
P.S. The t-shirt vote for black or white may be moot, since on talking to the t-shirt screen printer, they tell me that doing a 4 colour process on a black shirt is very difficult (a lot of the printers said they wouldn't do it). So I'm afraid we may end up with white shirts regardless.

Something akin to a miracle happened the other day. I was playing "Outside" and it was on Hallo Spaceboy when I noticed that my Dad (Mr. 'isn't he gay?') was tapping his foot to the music! I said "Um, Dad, that's Bowie you know" and he replied, "Well I can like some of it can't I?" We have a convert in the making! Happy New Year to all, including those who are already there (weird Aussie, NZ types)!

Rex, do you mean Beck's Odelay? We have a radio station that plays it incessantly here in Philly (in fact I heard the album in it's entirety yesterday). Although all the music critics are touting it as album of the year and oh son innovative, I personally find it tres boring. Just a conglomeration of samples from a wide variety of other types of music. On a Bowie note, does anyone know if you can play the video disc from the S+V box set on a PC? If so, what software is required? Happy NY!

Hallo boys and girls! I finally saw the "highlights" of the VH1 fashion thingy last night. What a joke. They showed Bowie doing Fashion (at the very end meaning I had to watch the rest of the mindless drivel first) but alas, no Little Wonder. Rex, Hel2 is very knowledgeable about Tricky and similar music, you might try emailing her. I heard the new U2 album will be called Pop, the first single is "Discotheque", and that Bono describes it as hard rock. However, Larry McMullen (sp?) was not able to be in on all of the recording sessions so they used someone whose name escapes me at the moment doing drum machine and sample tracks on some of the songs instead of drums. Should be interesting. Trinia, I have looked in every store in Philly (and a few in Kentucky) and have not seen hide not hair of the 1997 Bowie calendar. If I find any in NYC, I'll pick one up for you. Earthing, I will be looking for your ethereal form at the show! Happy New Year everyone!!!

AIMEE... did you get my e-mail? I got a message that it bounced back so I sent it again. HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone on the book! It looks like '97 is going to be fabulous in terms of Bowie releases, shows, etc. I heard Tricky for the first time today...very cool, Bowie has been tuned in. Do any of you have any reccomendations as to similar music I should try to get into? Has anyone heard the newest from Beck? Is it any good? I read the new release from U2 will be a mix of jungle/trance/dance/rave. They mention Tricky as an influence. Is Tricky as big in London as the press makes them out to be???

I have decided to take up Buddhism, that way I can master how to have outer body experiences so I can be at the concert. Ofcourse I could always rob a bank and fly over...but I'd prefer the tranquility and peacefulness of the Buddhist way....I've even created my own chant...weeebo....weeeebo...weeebo. I'll be drifting around at that concert before you know it!!

I just went through every single submission on the birthday card to see how many people mentioned LABYRINTH. I came up with 19 or 20 as I can't remember whether I included myself. 16 were female and 4 were male...what can this mean? And who the hell cares? Yes I'm bored.

Hello all. Over the past few weeks New zealand Television has been blessed with a fine documentary from the BBC about the history of Rock n Roll called, DANCING IN THE STREETS. As in all such docs. I wait patiently for the time when they will mention Bowies' contribution to music, and last night it happened...about a whole 40 mins of Bowie and his role in Glam rock!! Here is a little review for those who haven't heard of this documentary. The episode was called "HANG ONTO YOURSELF" and features short interviews with Lou Reed, Jayne/Wayne County of Pork fame who said something about Angie being the one who coerced David into the Ziggy character; Mainman president Tony Zanetta, Tony Visconti talking about the technique used in "Heroes" which was described as "a biblical song in rock"; Iggy Pop, Mike Garson doing a rendition of Time, the late great Mick Ronson, broadway designers Jules Fischer and Mark Ravitz on the construction of the Diamond Dogs set, and ofcourse David himself on his early career. But that's not all, as well as getting to see these recent interviews with people, the BBC provided heaps of what I consider rare TV shots from the 70s including a short shot of David circa 1970 with his real long hair, heaps of Ziggy clips, Lou Reed circa 1973 saying it was fun working with David, "but when he gets drunk he thinks he's Ziggy", a clip of Angie being asked what it's like to have all these girls liking your husband, heaps of fan and audience shots particulary a scene with a girl bawling her eyes out Beatles style and saying "He's smashing", Diamond Dogs concert clips something I never thought I'd get to witness, a short clip of David getting paranoid in his limo and heaps more...I think, or did I just give everything away....oh well. Just one more thing I need to mention, there was a part where David describes the cherry picker sequence in the DDogs tour where he gets lifted out above the audience as he sings. At one point the cherry picker wouldn't go back and David described how he was stranded above the audience having to sing about four songs and wondering how on earth he was going to get off after the show had finished..which was funny. Anyway...for those who haven't seen the BBCs DANCING IN THE STREETS, it's definately worth checking out not only for the Bowie scenes but for the whole dearth of footage about Rock n Roll. The video should be available at Record Shops or could probably be ordered from them as it is on sale....or you could be like me and wait forever for your local TV station to play it.

Interesting concept of a Bowie-sanctioned documentary as put forth by Emilio. I reckon it will probably take place once Bowie gets down to his last $100 million, as did George and Ringo (definitely not Paul) when the Beatles "Anthology" was produced. As far as Earthling is concerned, there have been several reviews on the message board and the upcoming fanzine "Voyeur" by Ton Van der Horst in Holland who gives it a thorough review. I love the new album, very much a disco, techno/rock, whatever you want to call it orientation. Reminds me much of Tricky, Pulp and the like. One can tell the influences from Black Tie/Buddah of Surburbia/Outside. A common thread is evident through all these albums. Best wishes folks Paul R.

I really hope that David's next album is good. I feel like he has been in a truly creative slump (at least musically) for the past 15 years. I saw him in concert this past summer with Nine Inch Nails and I thought it was an awful show. I was hoping that working both with Brian Eno and Trent Raznor would result in the innovative and fullfilling work he used to produce. The show was by the numbers and totally uninspired. I felt ripped off. Sorry to report this, but I truly respect David Bowies talents and my opinion of his recent output has been that he is lacking in inspiration of some sort. I hope he can overcome.

Dara's great review of the BBC special reminds me that it's about time somebody produced a video documentary about Bowie. The biggest problem, I think, is that an authorized documentary with comments from the man himself would probably exclude the possibility of interviewing such people as Angie, Tony de Fries, Woody Woodmansey, etc. A non-authorized video would be interesting for us fanatics, but conversely, would probably not include much Bowie footage. Anyway, if David granted full authority to a third person to produce such a documentary in much the same way as I believe he did for his official site on the Internet, we could have a definitive video account of his career. That's one of my wishes for 1997 - and what a better year to do it than the one he turns 50!

Hallo all, Even though I had email over the holiday, I was too busy to check it, so hope everyone had a great Christmas holiday. I just sent email to anyone who mailed me last week. So, for some old news, CONGRATS Evan on the site award, and I just wrote you in on the MTV fan site thingy. I think EVERYONE should do this, so Evan's site gets its much deserved awards. Can someone please mail me and let me know if Dara posted the Bowie sightings in the recent Q magazine. He usually does, but I didn't see it and I marked all the pages with Bowie references! Evan, how are the Tshirts coming along? Looking forward to seeing everyone in NYC. Have a great New Year!

I'm off to Patti's in Philly for the New Year's Eve celebrations soon...we'll try to log in from there, but 'bye bye' till Friday if we don't get around to it! Thanks for the great review of the Bowie special, Dara! Have a SAFE and happy New Year, Bowie friends, and I'll see you all later! Hel

Hope everybody had a "Merrye-Merrye" and will have a "Happye-Happye"... I rarely say anything when I visit this page -- I don't even say as much in the newsgroup as I used to. But I do want to say that since I went online about two years ago, I have met the most wonderful people in various Bowie forums! We have David to thank for the new friends we've made, and I'm looking forward to meeting more of them after the Birthday Show as 1997 Dawns! I've met and congregated with a few of you, and exchanged letters, phone calls and gifts with others. I didn't have this opportunity when I was a Bowie Neophyte in 1973. I didn't know the Philly people who lived on the other side of the Delaware River. I had no one with whom to share my joy in discovering Ziggy, Aladdin, or The Thin White Duke. But now my little E-Mail folder is home to a growing population of Bowiephiles. It's nice to make that connection. ( : I feel as though some of you are "family" in a way, and I've realized that sharing with you has become just as important as the concerts and the albums. One more thing -- I have grown to feel as though David is kind of a Cosmic Brother. And as I wish him a Happy Birthday and a Happy New Year, it is equally important that I wish a very Happy New Year to each and every one of you. With Love (All My Relaions!) -- SherryeLyn

Today was a pretty good Bowie day. First of all, Sky counted down the top 20 videos of all time as voted by their viewers, and Let's Dance was #19, and Ashes To Ashes #2. Now I've just finished listening to a half-hour BBC radio documentary on Bowie, which was pretty good. My main nitpick with it was that it stuck a little too close to the "he was the best in the 70's, lost it in the 80's, only partially regained it in the 90's" hymn book that many commentators sing from. And Eno rather annoyingly agreed with the documentary maker's point that Bowie's 90's output, even if it's very good, isn't as memorable as his 70's stuff. Eno said he reckoned Bowie's music was too cluttered, and he wishes that he (Eno) could remix Outside. But apart from that, lots of people said nice things about Bowie. Schnabel said he was the best artist he'd ever worked with, and that nobody could have played Warhol better. Garson said he was more of a jazz musician than any musician he'd worked with, and some art critic said kind things about his paintings (and his general contribution to British art). They even interviewed Tony Newley! And they played an extract from the Earthling version of Telling Lies, which sounded absolutely brilliant (much better than any of the three remixes that were already released).

So go back to the main page and click on 'Register', fill in the blanks, enter the info, and THEN it should let you in. Good luck!

Hel, thanks so much for consolidating the Bowie story from the MB. I had lost track of it and it was great to be able to read it all in one go. It's really fun but I think after he contributed such a great description of the concert that the least D.S could do is to turn up at MSG. I have tried working on him to do this but to no avail:(

BOWIE IS GOD, Awwww-woooo! Diamond Dogs rule... - Thursday, December 26, 1996 at 16:58:03 (EST)
I spent a questionable afternoon salvaging the never-ending scurrilous Bowie story (written by many of us, including DARA!). I've started editing (a nasty job, all those stupid html things!) but it is in pretty good shape now (after 3 dreadful hours!) So use Evan's links to go to "Hel's Kitchen", click on the story, and have fun! It is well worth reading for Dara's 'God' episode and the amazing description D.S. contributed of the upcoming Birthday Bash at Madison Square Garden! Somehow we need to get this moved to a site where it doesn't get buried (as it is on the multi-threaded MB) and where you all can ADD EPISODES! So, hang onto your TARDIS and go have a look! Hel

That old Bing-Bowie chestnut certainly keeps turning up all over the place. I've heard it on the radio a few times, and last night Channel 4 ran an old Beavis and Butthead Xmas special, featuring a short clip. Beavis and Butthead were clearly not impressed as they looked horrified and covered their eyes, before Beavis peeked through his hand with one eye for long enough to change the channel! Well, we always knew those boys had no taste. At the other end of the scale, in this month's Mojo, both Maria McKee and Damon Albarn (of Blur) say they've been listening to a lot of Bowie recently, while recording their respective new albums. Surprisingly enough, Damon (who has always been very open about Bowie being his major influence) says he has been listening to "Low" (which he describes as a very important record) and "Scary Monsters" - O'd have put him down more as a Hunky Dory man myself.

Thanks to everyone for the compliments on the site. I hope that this next year it will get even better (especially for the registered users).

I'm currently away from my normal email until this coming Sunday, so to people who send me messages, I'll reply once I get back :)

Cheers, Evan.

Congratulations from me too! I liked it since I first read the David Bowie File a year ago and it has only improved, like its subject. (By the way David, that trick about the "internet-only" release of Telling Lies was very clever. now you can release it to stores so I can hear it.)

Well, while you're all so busy patting Evan on the back and telling him what a great guy he is and what a great site this is and how he deserves the award, I'd just like to point out that.....I agree totally. This is the best music site on the Web. Fact. BTW, who else has heard that Bowie isd doing an Unplugged set for the BBC, transmission date Jan 4?

Hi All--Heres a queston. David is such a great writer and certainly an avid reader. Songs like Life on Mars, Teenage Wildlife, Cygnet Committee, Scream like a baby, We are the dead, Time, Word on a Wing are incredibly inspiring and spine tingling. I wonder why Bowie does not go back to the narrative song writing of Young Americans/Saviour Machine or even songs like Loving the alien/Heroes or Glass Spider? Lately with BTWN, TBOS and Outside--the music has been perfect but the minimalist lyrics of Low conjured up more Images then his recent literary constructions. What do others feel about David the writer? I welcome all opinions? Don't get me wrong--the man is great--Tin Machine albums boasted some lyrical intensity but I still wish David would return to previous literary perfection!

I hope people will try to video tape the English and American TV appearances - not that we want to break the law or anything - but I simply MUST see these upcoming performances, interviews and docos. And will we see them on Australian TV? Don't hold your breath. Bloody! Bugger! Bum!! Not to mention... AAAGGGGHHHH!!!! There is a very great sadness in my heart. ***Sigh***

How would everyone feel about putting the "Teenage Wildlife" lettering above or below the pictures? You may want to post a couple of versions and let us vote on them. Either way, count me in. Evan, I hope you are making a couple of bucks per shirt because you deserve it! Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.

Well, I'm back from a fun filled trip to NYC, only to return and find that David is playing the Garden on the 9th. I could have postponed my trip if I had known about it sooner. Bummer! Hopefully I'll catch it on the pay per view thing. All is not lost, I came home to NC with lots of goodies. I picked up 3 CD's in this little shop in the village, one being the Telling Lies CD. Then I got 2 others which I know are bootlegs, but could not resist. They had about 6 more that I left behind, the checkbook is looking pretty poor this time of the year. I also picked up Eno's Diary. It's pretty interesting so far. Merry Christmas to all you Bowie fans, it looks like we got a GREAT year to look foward too!!!!!!

New Voting Topic!

I'd appreciate it if people took the time to vote on the new topic of the week. I'm thinking about possibly printing up some t-shirts for Teenage Wildlife people. Also, any comments on the design should be sent to me... I thought about what to put on the front in the way of text - maybe it would be better with just the banner. Or maybe with "I AM some piece"?? Although in some ways "I'm not some piece of" is true to the original lyrics, and also slightly more sarcastic and an "in-joke".

Well, let me know what you think!

P.S. If you've already voted, but want to look at the design again, then go to the T-shirt page!

Fortunately I have a cyber-nut for a brother who has a much better set up than I do, so I'll be online consistently, although busy partying. I would be happy to get some Tshirts for people at the show, email me with requests and sizes. (Within reason, I con't buy 100's, as I have to ride the train back to Philly :-). Joyeaux Noel!!!

Well, I'm going to add my 2c by sending best wishes to all, and especially to Ramona (make sure the blood level in your Xmas sugar doesn't get too high), Trinia and Helen, old stalwarts from long ago. My sister is visiting me here, I'm gonna party in Seattle and Vancouver over new years, and GUESS WHAT!! I get to go work in Holland, just outside of Amsterdam, for all of Jan and Feb. In fact last time I was there I just missed a Bowie concert in Rotterdam ... so if Dave does a surprise visit, Hahahahahahaha all you and I'll report back accordingly. God, I can be nasty sometimes, but then, I'm not even going to catch the MTV version of the birthday concert. Arg.

*It's time we should be going...* Well everybody, I'm slinking away after my last final today, and I won't be back till next year. So here's a great big non-tonguey *kiss-kiss* to all you young dudes and mellow-thighed chicks (and those who've not decided yet) out there in sigh-brrr space. One final group huddle AAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! for those of us barred from th'Event, and to everybody that IS going HAVE THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE!!! I've begged on the other board, and I'll do it over here too: could somebody PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE get me a t-shirt (email me today and let me know)? Or maybe, just maybe, an Autograph if you luck out and get to meet the Man? And Robot Monster, if there is a teaming up of Thomas Jerome Newton and Captain America, remember one thing: I get top! Anyway, I'm off to send my diabetic relatives into a sugar cookie-induced coma, but I would like to thank you, Mr. Torrie, sir, for letting me play with your fabulous site; I can't tell you the deep, intense pleasure it's given me these past few months. *Hip-Hip Harangue.

Here in Brazil, as in most countries, you can see a lot of people dressed as Santa Claus at this time of the year. The only problem is that it is SUMMER here!!!! Those guys must really sweat in there!!! In fact, it never snows in Brazil, not even in Winter, so please send me some snow for Christmas so I can see what it looks like.

This is the last chance I'll have to log-on here before Xmas, so I'd just like to say: "Have a Merry Xmas and a peaceful New Year" (as a certain person said on the B-side of the Band Aid single in 1985). Gang, I'll be thinking of you all over Xmas, especially you, Matt; this Xmas will be very sad for you, but let's hope 1997 will mark a new beginning. God bless, and I'll see you all in the New Year.

Ramona, your server has gone into its cocoon hibernation state for the winter, as I can no longer e-mail you. Okay, I was thinking of matches between various Bowie film characters and other film characters (okay, it's silly, but school is driving me batty here). First up, Thomas Jerome Newton vs. Captain America (no, not the superhero, but Peter Fonda in Easy Rider). An alien alcoholic versus a pothead. Whaddya think?

Well, I've been checking out the guestbook lately and it appears that, although I'm a daily visitor to Evan's fantastic site, I'm nothing in the interaction department, especially compared to some. I feel so left out. I'll have to remedy that. :) But I will be at MSG--My plane ticket and concert ticket are serving as my birthday present from my family. Which brings me to another point--since New Year's Eve 1999 will be my 25th birthday, I think *I'M* entitled to the best seats in the house at that show. :) I definitely think we should come up with some sort of idea for a Teenage Wildlife meeting in line or something. I'm going to propose something to Evan via e-mail in a moment... Anyway, I can't wait until the 9th!!!! See y'all there!

On Killing Earthlings: Grab that short thing grovelling there. Soak with gasoline its hair. Take your lighter, flick your bic. Wow! Its hair sure went up quick! Ha, its legs are quivering so! Its eyeballs looking to and fro. Its hairless head it turning 'round, Its brow the color of the ground. Watch it try to run away. Take a pitchfork from the hay, Throw the pitchfork. What a shot! Its blood squirts out like a red ink blot. Killing Earthlings is quite a hobby, In the bedroom, den or lobby. One can do it anywhere, But first must burn the Earthling's hair.

JENN - I couldn't agree with you more - not everybody can afford that money - no matter HOW big a fan you are. Being a Bowie fan isn't about how many times you've seen him live , or how big your collection is - its about appreciating his genius and creativity ( not to mention his sexiness !!!! ), even if you don't own ANYTHING.

Incidentally, met a vertically challenged but muscular Italian a few years later called Roy who said he worked on the Serious Moonlight Tour and also the China Girl and Let's Dance videos (he was a grip). He told me they couldn't tell whether Bowie and Geeling were really doing IT when they shot the beach scene as Dave made the crew stand at a considerable distance. He was probably making it all up to impress, of course. Come back David Bowie!! We're your GIGANTICKEST fans in all the world!!

Margot, you are so right. Apart from the Tin Machine appearance (which I WASN'T at [gritted teeth] - was it Whale Beach?), we "in" Oz (in my case a virtual "in") have been starved of Dave. Even now when I'm back in Sydney walking along the Quay towards the Opera House, I have to walk out on that little floating pontoon and kiss the ground where he filmed part of "Let's Dance". I wonder if anyone washed it? I do hope not. It should be the unofficial shrine for all Sydney-based Bowie freaks. Ramona, love the set list ... I might add The Drowned Girl as part of my personal set of faves ... but I would LOVE Brian Eno to show up on keyboards.

Hey Margot, first, I dig your b-day greeting, but let it be known that the well of Bowie live TV appearances has been dry since 1987 when a network showed an hour of the officially released Glass Spider show. It's the people in Europe who get all of the good tv. The media here doesn't give a flying fuck about Bowie, so hell if they are going to air more than a few minutes worth of live footage. You see, that's why they are going to make us PAY for the "priveledge" to see him live on TV.

Came across this little item in Adam Curry's Sleaze: DAVID BOWIE's bisexuality was merely a phase, according to the legendary rocker himself. Bowie publicly "came out" to British music weekly MELODY MAKER as a bisexual in 1974 while still married to American model ANGIE. But he now claims he has always been resolutely heterosexual. Bowie says, "I was virtually trying anything back then (see - I TOLD you guys he was out of control…). I really had a hunger to experience everything that it's possible to do - except really dangerous things, like being an explorer (huh???). But anything that Western culture has to offer - I've put myself through most of it. I'm not a particularly hedonistic person (yeah right)- I tried my best. I was up there with the best of them. But in the final analysis, it wasn't really me."

If you follow Evan's link in the "News/Rumours" to "Addicted to Noise" the article above the one about David's birthday concert is about her new release. MS

Hel, I have a feeling that I *might* be the one responsible for scaring the other Scribes away with that little *crucifixion* twist that I added to the story. Either that or some could be more preoccupied with other things happening in the ensuing weeks (can't for the life of me remember what those might be, though...). Mr. Torrie's a very generous soul; he may want to adopt our little libelous love ode to David over here if properly prodded (not necessarily with a red-hot poker, either). Caillean, glad the story got thru (if you're wondering where the Lost Episodes fit in, they go between Part the First and Numero Dos). OK, about that set list for *our* (meaning those barred from th'Event) Bowie concert. Personally, I'd like the following (don't worry, these will be real songs; they're in no particular order, and I've chosen them just because they happen to be the first to pop into my head): The Heart's Filthy Lesson; Queen Bitch; Rebel Rebel; Life on Mars; Jean Genie; Amazing; White Light/White Heat; Sweet Thing-Candidate-Sweet Thing (reprise)[I'm counting these as one song]; Let's Spend the Night Together; I Wanna Be Your Dog; Station to Station; Ziggy Stardust; Where Have All The Good Times Gone; I'm Afraid of Americans (haven't heard it, but it's a cool title); and, to close, The Laughing Gnome (serves him right, you know). *Other* musical guests? OK, let's try Iggy (of course), Jagger (oh, stop flinching), and...Michael Bolton (he's my Mane Man).

Ramona, I think our wonderful story is dying out over on the MB. We should mail it to Evan and see if he'll adopt it as a single-threaded 'board' over here. Would he need to edit? Well, that's up to him, I suppose. We'd have to let him read it (the legend so far....) and see what he thinks. But any man who purportedly consorts with sheep should love this classic tale! OK, here's the latest sheep joke I heard: why do Scotsmen wear kilts? Sheep can hear zippers a mile away!! (oh no now I'll get hate mail from Scotsmen...)

SEASON'S BLEATINGS, MR. TORRIE, SIR (& TO MATT & EAST BAY DAVID B AS WELL). I think I've just about maxed out my emotional credit card; I've gotten to that wonderfully serene plateau where I really can't feel anything anymore. You get to a certain point where you realize all the screaming/begging/pleading (no matter how much fun it is in most circumstances) won't get you what you want, and that the Overlords of Space and Time really can't be appeased. Anyway, I'll be spending 8 January down in the LA area celebrating Elvis's birthday. I'll probably remain in bed all day on the 9th (with the sheets pulled up over my head) watching endless Bowie vids and driving my mom mad. Being so myopic, I probably will get a better view on the MTV (eeewww!!) PPV special, but it's just not the same (and you know what I mean). I've given Santa his jollies before, but I doubt if I'll find any Bowie goodies under the tree or in my stocking because my mommy says he's evil.

OK all folks who can't make the Birthday concert. I guess we'll just have to have a Virtual Birthday Concert all by ourselves, right here on the net. Suggested ground rules: Set list of 15 songs, required to represent Bowie's entire career from (let's say) The Man Who Sold The World onwards. 5 musicians NOT ATTENDING THE ACTUAL BIRTHDAY CONCERT to be selected to sing with and pay homage to our "Virtual Dave". Other ground rules? Any takers on this?

General admission sucks: crushed to death!! All in all, the MTV show will probably show you a better view of David than going to the Garden the 9th would. AND it will likely snow like crazy anyway so none of us with tickets will end up getting into Manhattan anyway. Hey, remember last winter when there was so much snow in Manhattan and no where to 'put' it and everyone had to go around town on cross-country skiis?? Have I cheered any UP YET??? Hel

It's been so depressing here that I just want to pull the plug on life. I can't go either, but my life is going on. Okay, maybe I'm taking comfort in the fact that I have a really groovy new job, but I hate to see all of you bummed out like this. I've been denied of Bowie shows more often than Tom Thumb in a whorehouse, so please all, just pray to the gods of bootleggers and PPV. And if you give Santa what he wants, I'm sure lots of Bowie related thingys will appear under your tree. Seasons greetings.

Sara, you're right, David's teeth couldn't have changed in 1989. I saw him live in 1990 and he still had the same look. That's the only suspicious part of the message. But then, after a certain age people don't get dates right anymore. Besides, David said his teeth "started crumbling" in 1989. Maybe they went on crumbling in 1990, 1991... Can you see his teeth crumbling in "The Linguini Incident"?

EVAN...RE: Bowie influences...In 1959 his mon gave him a plastic saxaphone after he showed such interest in a Little Richard single that had been released. Took sax lessons from Jazz sax man Ronnie Ross in 1960. In 1963 he hung out at Trafalgar Square to talk about Kerouac, Burroughs and other Beat Generation icons. The Mod culture was a big influence during his teens, he also said everyone wanted to be the next Elvis... Bowie also said "I considered Newley (Anthony Newley) to be an A-1 English artist..." Bowie was deeply influenced by Newley in the early days, they shared the same publiser, David Platz. Evan, this info comes from the book "David Bowie, A Chronology" by Kevin Cann. Other influences have to include Marc Bolan, Bob Dylan, Lindsay Kemp, etc. SARA, look at old photos of Bowies teeth...they slant inward, slightly crooked. They don't look like that anymore! I actually like the original better... more of a vampire look, complimented his eyes nicely.

Those who know how exciting it is to be going must also know how utterly heartbreaking it must be for those of us who can't. Of course there's no way that David could play for all of his fans for this once in a lifetime Event; the rest of us will just have to content ourselves with the MTV (eeewww!!!) PPV broadcast IF they ever get around to doing it. Believe it or not, I'm actually quite happy for the Chosen Few who can make it to NY; just can't help but wishing that I could make it, too.

Well, I was just thinking...they still look very vampirish in The Linguini Incident and that's in 1991, right? Well, just an observation. Does having your teeth capped change their appearence? Because his don't look any different to me.

Evan-- I think Bowie's had many influences throughout the years. One that's stayed with him from the mid-seventies on is Kraftwerk. Thats just my opinion.

Hallo All....*sigh* My mum has decided that there is no way that I can go to the NY concert...because I "don't have enough money saved up." I can't believe it. You don't need to hate me anymore BowieManiac..... TO anyone who is going: Could someone please please please get me a tshirt? I'd love to have one :) :) :) I also can't believe that no one is on the chat. Well, I guess that I'll have to go sit in my room and listen to Bowie, while I become more depressed.

O.k David, how about celebrating your 50 years and two weeks birthday down under? 50 years and 3 months? 50 years and 6 months? You could celebrate your teeth down under. How about celebrating the celebration of your 50th birthday down under? ANY GODDAMN ANNIVERSARIE WILL DO, JUST GET DOWN HERE!! (Please).

Hey folks, I'm doing a musical "Family Tree" for myself - you know, I list me, my two major musical influences, each of their two musical influences...and I was wondering if any of you folks "in the know" could tell me who you think Bowie's two biggest musical influences are. If it were left up to me I'd say Dylan and Warhol, or Dylan and Velvet Underground, but I'm sure thats pretty erroneous, and I was wondering if any of you out there could solve this for me. Thanks a ton! - Evan Long Please tell me that this doesn't post as one reeeal long line...agh

OK, here is an unoffical scoop. I e_mailed a national ticket broker about getting seats in 1-20 and got back the response that all floor tickets will be general admission, which sucks for me, I was hoping to pay big bucks for front row seating, and probably changes things for a lot of people. For one thing it means no pee breaks if you want to be up front and means you will have to be in line early if you want good position....shit! Another item I came acros that is guiet amusing is this from Adam Curry's Sleaze : British rocker DAVID BOWIE will celebrate his 50th birthday one day late on 9 January - at New York's MADISON SQUARE GARDEN. Bowie who will be joined by FRANK BLACK, THE FOO FIGHTERS, LOU REED, ROBERT SMITH of THE CURE an SONIC YOUTH for a SAVE THE CHILDREN charity concert featuring his hits over the years. Bowie's new album EARTHLING is released in February. In other Bowie news, however, the singer has been rocked by allegations that he and ex-wife ANGIE took part in a threesome with AEROSMITH frontman STEVEN TYLER's ex-wife CYRINDA FOX. Fox claims she was just a teenager when the fling occurred. She says the affair turned sour after she discovered she was carrying Bowie's child - and decided to have an abortion. A spokesperson for Bowie refused to comment on the allegation, but he did confirm that it was entirely possible because Bowie has freely admitted to being a cokehead nymphomaniac during that period. Ooops. Just kidding. He didn't really say that… FORREST GUMP star TOM HANKS rema

I'm not depressed, I am resigned. The fact is there is no possible way for me to get to New York and I have accepted this with all the courage I can muster. All I can say now is there better be people out there taping the concert, trying to take pictures, and trying to get to him while he's in NY. I expect, rather I demand to see new contributions to the fan contributions page directly after the show. Sorry to be abrupt, perhaps I am not as accepting with this cruel reality as I thought. MS

On the subject of Bowie in the Bay Area, Ramona and other local types: did Bowie ever do any big shows in the city in the old days? I've been here 3 years and he's only ever played the Shoreline in that time ... oh yes, and that one or two times he played the Warfield with Tin Machine. Did he ever do the Fillmore? Or the Bill Graham?

*Now she walks thru her sunken dream* I had the oddest nightmare this week. I dreamt that David had chosen to play NY instead of LA, and that he had shaved his hair off and pushed back the release date of Earthling to February. I've never had a more terrifying nightmare (even worse than the one I had about musical teeth). I just couldn't wake up from it... *sigh* I really do wish that this were true (the nightmare about David, not the musical teeth). Hallo to the East Bay David B (I had my share of American Girl jokes when I was living in England, but they couldn't even come close to the sordid sheep jokes I've heard about the boys from Down Under). Sorry Robot Monster, but nice girls like myself NEVER enter SF's sinful pleasure arcades; we get our pleasures elsewhere. And smearing the mustard under that freaky restaurant's table would've been too good for them. But at least ONE good thing has come out of this week; I ended up on top of Noam in the birthday card. *it's all I ever wanted*

Those of you interested, I posted an essay about Bowie's involvement with Devo over on the message board. As you can all see, it's been a trying time for Ramona, having been denied acces to Dave's 50th bash. Everyone throw her some quarters so she can go seek comfort in one of those scary "arcades" in San Fran. And Ramona, we forgot to spread the mustard underneath the table in that freaky restaurant. Now I'm off to take the GRE.

Ramona, I share your pain. Even with David's repeated presence here in the Bay Area in the last couple of years, it hurts so bad to lose the birthday concert to that evil cesspit of a city on the East Coast. (Just joking ... actually I love NYC.) But I suppose if you had to choose an American city for him to stage it, it probably is logically NYC, with possibly LA or SF a close second. I like to thing we were in the running at least :-)

*We are nothing, and nothing will help us* OK, I've finally (sorta) come to grips with the fact that I won't be able to go to David's birthday concert in NY (it is an evil city, anyway). I've squandered my cheap-o student loan on a better quality of bubble formula and other little necessities (housing, food), and unless I can produce a first-born right now that I can sell off (I can't remember the spell since I've misplaced my grimoire; any suggestions, Witchypoo Hel?) there's no way on god's green earth that I could ever afford it (thanx for the info anyway, Helen2). Maybe it's better this way. After all, absence makes the heart grow fonder (and other well-worn assorted cliches); it'll just give me the big 60th birthday bash to look forward to (*so far away*). *These tears can never dry a judgement made can never bend*

Evan, you may be pleased to know that as an expat Australian in the US, I'm on the business end of sheep jokes rather indiscriminately. I get the distinct sense that the rest of the world draws a line between Sydney and Cape Town and pretty much figures that everyone south of it engages in strange practices not known North.

I even don't know what I would prefer - A bald David (Which might look cool...) doing a (great) video for a (great) mix of TL, or maybe he would look terrible and doing a shitty video, so I'd rather he won't do it.

Well, I can see everyone has been busy posting this morning :).

Also, in the midst of sleep-deprivation, I managed to delete everybody's email addresses from my database; managed to recover 90% of them from my last backup, but some of you will have to wait a little longer until I run through manual debugging information... *sigh*.

Dara is the most reliable source for info on the European release date. And though we should be feeling blessed (the 'concert'!) many of us are mad (wrong coast) (broke) (where to get tickets)....so it's more or less stirred up the hornet's nest here!!!

According to the official press release on davidbowie.com the guest will join David on stage to sing songs for 'his acclaimed career'. No mention of Beck there though, thank goodness.

Ramona, don't worry, in a few years you'll be a filthy rich lawyer, and you'll be front row and center at his 60th birthday bash. It may be a little hard to squeeze past all of those oxygen tanks, wheelchairs and walkers at the rest home, but you'll be there to see him.

REX - re: your response to Ido, I am so happy that someone else recognizes that bands like NIN and Prick have their roots in older (real) industrial like Throbbing Gristle and Coil. That whole era of REAL industrial (e.g. train noises, sledgehammers, and such) seems to go completely unrecognized by the masses. Even mildly popular, and more listenable, industrial - like Art of Noise - seems to have been lost in musical history. Whatever happened to Psychic TV?

(1/2 hr. in good traffic) away from the Universal Amphitheatre IF YOU HAD PLAYED LA!! But the Powers That Be have decreed that this shall not be so. *Heaven knows she'd've taken anything*

There is nothing wrong with electronic music!!! In fact, I've been working for years on a complete symphonic piece to be entirely performed by my three IBM mainframes (HAL-9000, his brother HAL and their other brother HAL and their dog UNIX). Musicians in my experience are entirely unreliable, run up huge bar and hotel bills, have whiney ideas of their own, and would be much easier to replace with the HALS! Everyone I know (musicians) is laughing at me for this but when we open (finally) then they'll all be sorry!!! Hel

Matt: So I take it Kiwis are the butt of sheep jokes in your hemisphere then, eh? Up here it's the Welsh. My photo: well apart from not having a scanner and being too lazy to send one to Evan, my problem is that ever since that unfortunate incident which left me hideously scarred and deformed for life (I'm talking about my birth here), I have deemed it better if people can hear but not see me. If I had sent a photo, I would have been forced to cover my shame in a paper bag, and, let's face it, at that stage I might as well just email Evan and tell him to take a picture of himself wearing a brown paper bag: the effect would be much the same (although I bet he still looks better in a brown paper bag than I do).

Hi Matt. Given that you say that Outside didn't even chart in Oz, I think Bowie should retaliate by not only refusing to tour there, but also refusing to even release his albums there, until such time as you have organised enough Aussies to commit to buying the album that it's guaranteed platinum status. (Only joking. Besides, I suppose I can't really pontificate as Outside didn't chart in Ireland either. The concert still sold out, though). And Evan: the birthday greetings page looks really great now. Apart from it's primary function, it's great to be able to put faces to all (or most of) the names. And as for Evan: what a hunk!!! If I wasn't a married man.........

To Ido, and the rest of the debaters: Saying that music died twenty years ago is quite silly. Much of the music of the 80's and 90's is/was brand new, and now copied from older stuff. (Influenced - assuredly, but not copied). The fact that you don't like the 90's Trance/Dance/Trip-hop/whatever music does not quite yet delegitimize it. I don't like most of that music too, but I can still see it as MUSIC. Most of the people I've met who trash electronic music have never actually sat down to listen to it.

Margot, Bruce and any other Australian Bowie fans, get in contact with the ABC (by email, phone, message in a bottle etc) and demand that they have a Bowie special on Rage around the 8th of January.

Auntie Hel, he may well be touring here in the spring (Autumn here), but so are a whole group of other artists who have already announced their shows, and sold most of their tickets. Given that Outside didn't even chart in Australia I would suggest to David to start selling tickets as early as possible, in order to get enough ticket sales to make the tour financially viable.
Matt (westacot@central.murdoch.edu.au)
Perth, Australia - Friday, December 13, 1996 at 09:35:13 (EST)
I don't think David is playing NYC due to trying to be nice to those of us who already got to see the Ballroom Shows. I think it boils down to: he lives there right now, so it is convenient. And he can easily sell a LOT of tickets there to the Garden and make a bundle for children's charity. AND probably he (or someone) figures the event will create publicity for the Earthling release. Hang on, Australia, he IS touring there in the spring!! Hel

But DAVID, I can attest from personal observation of several recent shows, still puts everyone to shame, he is so good! He is the only thing LEFT from the 60's (which I personally saw happen and participated in)...Oh well, all this and about $67 (plus hotel costs) will get me a spot at the upcoming concert! Hel

Ido: Rock 'n' roll may = youth, but in those terms Bowie retired in 1980, since SM is the last truly rock 'n' roll album he made. His albums since then have been mixtures of different genres of modern pop music. Ramona: I don't think Bowie is parodying himself any more than he did in the 70's. If you look at a lot of the concert footage from that time, you can see Bowie is having a ball taking the piss. Ziggy was an archetype or parody. That's one of the reasons these "straight on" rawk 'n' roll bands and fans never liked Bowie: he makes better rock 'n' roll than anyone else but at the back of it, he knows and shows it's just a farce, the whole genre is one big cliche, big man on stage, screaming little man (and woman) below. Ridiculous, ludicrous and very entertaining. To me, the idea of a 50-year-old rocker is no more farcical than a 20-year-old in a duffle coat who thinks he's the reincarnation of John Lennon. But Bowie is no 50-year-old rocker: he's a 50-year-old artist, and one (and only one) medium he expresses himself in is modern music. And he does it better than anyone else.

It's been nearly ten years since David has performed in Australia(if you don't include that one surprise Tin Machine show which absolutely nobody knew about).So release him from your strong grip and share him around(I don't want to have to come up there and get him).Only joking,but I do hope that the Australian shows are announced real soon.Luv on ya!(Even you lucky ones)

Ido, your argument could have been made back in the 60's. The Beatles, Stones, Animals, Kinks, etc. were all influenced by American artists, mostly black R&B artists. Critics of the time said their new rehashed sound would never last. Even Industrial music from NIN and the like can be traced back to Throbing Gristle in the early 70's. Revolution is evolution...

Far from Bowie, - Thursday, December 12, 1996 at 21:57:16 (EST)
Ramona has not been a very happy camper today (why, David, WHY??). And then Ido has to go and insult the Stones as well. OK, buck-o, them's fighting words. Music, in your opinion, may have died 20 years ago; I do agree with that in part. But for tbose of us born roughly 20 years ago, the question remains why should we be deprived of it? Since most of us have no easy access to a TARDIS, "rehashing" the past is really the only way we can experience it "first-hand" in the present. I do agree with you that the 80s by and large royally sucked (and the Let's Trance/EMI-era Bowie certainly does not float my boat), but if being young means I have to LIKE whatever fodder the current music press says is the Nesxt Big Thing, then I must respectfully decline the invitation. I'll gratefully take a parody of a parody of a parody (since this is how I interpret your definition of what Bowie seems to be doing in his current work) if it's the only way I can experience what I know I've "missed" in the past. Now let me get off of my soapbox here before I fall off...

Marginally Less Pissed Off In SF, CA USA - Thursday, December 12, 1996 at 21:12:59 (EST)
Oh, forgot something- music DID die 20 years ago!!! Someone has asked below how can I say it. Well, how can YOU not say it! don't live your life in a tunnel! A short summary: 1. The (astonishing, amazing) 60's: THE BEATLES!!! they ruled and still do. plus a lot of a whole bunch of other groups that eat Oasis alive for breakfast! 2. the awesome 70's! again, tons of talents continuing to amaze and ofcourse DAVID BOWIE!!! he ruled! 3. The (shallow) 80's!!: YACH!!!! music turned to be commercial, conservative 4. The 90's: this decade started very good with Nirvana and ended with it. by now, the Trance-Dance-Trip hop and stuff are very fashionable(Bowie is a major fan of Tricky and obviously his last work is very influenced by him and the prodigy) personally, I think that Prodigy is very nice but this whole genre is not really music, I think that it's more for exciting and enthusing one's emotions! why is that? because melodic music has stopped developing and limited its options! the proof for that is that since 1980, we are still searching for the new Beatles, Bowie, Pink Floyd, etc., and can't find them, so we settle for recycled music-Oasis and the whole brit-pop scene. the same for Jazz music. there was no genious in the last 20 years that pushed music ahead only because it has reached its limits all that we hear now is recycled. Hope I've made myself clear!

Hi Nevada. I think Bowie tends to retrace his steps and recover old songs when he feels the original has been overlooked, and especially if he feels he can improve on it. Hence the revival of I'm Afraid Of Americans from the Showgirls soundtrack very few people actually bought (so most Bowie fans haven't heard this classic (IMO, it's a classic)). Similarly, SWWM was revived from TBOS, which at the time very few people had heard. And the revival of two TM classics, I Can't Read (my favorite TM tune) and Baby Universal can be justified on the same grounds. Many of Bowie's current fans, who either turned on to him for the first time around BTWN or later, or turned back onto him, still don't have the two TM studio albums. For evidence of this, go see Phil Drenth's Bowie site. He turned back on to Bowie on BTWN, and reviews every major Bowie album (even Peter And The Wolf and the various soundtracks), but doesn't even mention Tin Machine.

That picture that Evan placed below looks like it might have been in the Serious Moonlight tour book (not the program). We used to have one kicking around here at the University, but I'm sure its tattered remains have been picked over well (actually, there aren't too many cute pictures of David from that era). Anyone else have that book? I think Bowie wrote the foreword. Ramona, can you ever forgive us for raiding your refrigerator?

Does anyone know if Little Wonder will be receiving radio airplay on the east coast? Also has anyone heard any rumors about why db did a remake of I'm afraid of Americans off the showgirls soundtrack? Why does he have a tendency to retrace his steps? Hello Ramona--Hope school isn't getting you down--Hang in there--it will be over soon! Evan--If you get a chance--drop me a line...How are you Dara? Hear anything new about Earthling? Take care all!

REX - "Sons of the Silent Age" is retiring, to the dismay of all of us! I suppose you and I will have to find another rendez-vous...can you think of any other less popular message boards??? I have a page at www.ffly.com, under monkee430, and I may have a message board there...worth a look. On the bright side, I think I am finally going to be getting my own computer, so maybe I can FINALLY hear "Telling Lies"! (although I suppose it's only a matter of weeks until the new CD, at this point...) I did submit an entry for the card, but I had to snail-mail my picture. I hope Evan gets it in time!! I'm assuming my entry is not up because the pic hasn't been received. Better go, before I take up the WHOLE board.

Greetings Bowie buds, patti, no picture?! How devastating! Even Hel managed to get one in there, and she seems to be in the midst of a power outage. Evan, I think you should clarify that people can still submit greetings, they just won't be a part of the printed version of the card, but can be part of the virtual card. N'est-ce pas?

Just got to my computer and see that Evan DID decode that pic (darn!) But to answer the MB question, the Webmaster there answered the query I sent him last evening and yes, he did have a server crash and he did have to 'restore' from a backup, so basically lost yesterday's work. Margot tried to fix the story....I'll have to go look. Fortunately, I printed the entire slanderous thing off when it was still intact, so we'll see what we can do.

Although I have long suspected it, I never had proof (until now) that you have no head (which explains a lot of your reasoning ).

MESSAGE BOARD STORY WRITERS: An ammendment to the post below: Change of tactics, as the whole followup system in the "The rest of the story" thread has been Buggered-by-Brian. I am now about to copy Putz, Than and Duncan's posts and put them in one brand new untainted thread at the top of the page. Lordy what a MESS!

Hey Message Board Story Writers. I've been combatting the dark forces of the message board keepers and believe I have recovered the lost recent episodes so you can post on them. You MUST follow the following procedure for this to work: Go to the thread entitled "The rest of the story" but don't click on this post. Instead, click on the followup post which I've called "Post your followup on this" (or something like that). This post has Putz and Thanatos' story contributions in it. I THINK you'll be able to post a follow up on it. If you try to post your followup on the first post of the thread (or Thanatos' semi-invisible followup to that post), your new post will disappear. Sorry to be so confusing. But really, I think it's OK now. So everyone, please contribute! (Sorry to distract people from your lovely site Evan. We love you!)

Well, THIS site is showing signs of recent activity, so I didn't totally kill off this poor PC with my paintshop games, I don't think! I at first thought I was loading the Net from yesterday's cache or something, but since this site looks 'fresh', it is either the TARDIS effect...or Brian has had to restore from yesterday's file!

Not fair, Hel! I wanted to see the witch pic. Even those of us who don't normally photograph at all showed ourselves in our true forms (Exhibit A: Robot Monster). Besides, it doesn't matter what the townsfolk say about you since you can always turn them into newts (even novice witches can do that ol' trick). I LIKED the Bolton/Bowie angle in the mb story; so bad that it's good (besides, we did get to kill him, and Mariah twice!!) And David might be calling up a legal team to deal with the libelous content of the story? Hmmm, I knew I picked the right profession to work my way into. I'll head it (the fact that I'm only in my first year is beside the point) and I'll keep him from pulling his hair, too. After all, that's my job. love-on ya!

Well, Ramsey, if Dara is correct (ha ha on this one, though he is USUALLY correct) David will soon have no hair, since Evan has to edit and add all greetings! David, get back to work on the album!!! OK, now that THAT'S settled, Patti is writing papers and waiting until the LAST possible moment so David WILL tear out his hair. However, if he's read our 'story' over on the MB, he likely either pulled it all out ALREADY or has called in a legal team!! It is quite amusing, though I could have done without the Michael Bolton scene (sorry Putz!) When the MB comes back from its maintenance stop, check out the continuing endless adventures of our dear db....Hel P.S. I can't post the witch picture: as it is, I fear the townsfolk, who are always muttering and collecting firewood.

BTW, I think Evan has to actually enter the greetings onto the card, they don't just pop up as soon as you submit. And where is patti's?!?! Can't be a birthday card without patti!! Ramona, how are those exams going? (Saw you over on Sons of the Silent Age. Tsk tsk, shouldn't be hanging out at EVERY Bowie site on the net during exams.) As for the Bowie age thing, I personally believe Bowie may be entering one of the most creative periods of his entire career. Outside is brilliant, the recent tours were energetic, he's got a great band and seems really happy and is looking better than he has in years! So there!

And I looked through it all twice, and WHERE is MARGOT? She's supposed to be 'in there' too. Or is she still stuck in the Tardis over on the Message Board?

Pretty soon you're gonna get a little older--Goddamn, you're looking old--you'll freeze and catch a cold. I'm glad that you're older than me--a little old man in scarlet & grey, swinging an old bouquet-dead roses. He made him fly thru a hole till he grew real old-Never bored, so I'll never get old. The thinker sits alone growing older--They're just older children!

Hel: How do you know Dave is waiting with bated breath. I'll bet your holding up the whole Earthling release. Dave, and Reeves, and Gail Ann, and Mike Garson and Mark Plati are all there, sitting hunched over a PC, clicking the Reload button on the birthday greetings page every 2.1 seconds. They're all chain-smoking, and Dave's up to 3 cigarettes a minute (smoked simultaneously), and he's pulling his hair, or wig (if he doesn't have one now, he'll need one soon), and wailing into his coffee: "Where is Hel? Why hasn't Hel written a birhday greeting?". Iman is trying to comfort him, telling him that Hel's busy working on it, but she'll have it in before the deadline, but Dave is inconsolable: "No, she doesn't care any more!!!". So hurry up Hel, before they all lose their wits (and Dave his hair): we all need your greeting (which will undoubtedly be the most witty, poignant, true, brilliant one yet) and photo (How's that for putting pressure on you, eh???)

I agree with you Robot Monster, that the quality of most musicians drops off as they get older and it affects their ability to play. I also agree that notwithstanding that, they should keep working until they want, and as long as there are people who enjoy what they're doing. A friend of mine went to see Ray Charles for the first time last year. Even though Charles is old now and obviously can't do the things he could do 20 years ago, my friend still found it very enjoyable and worthwhile, and was delighted to be able to see Charles once in his life. So as long as you're realistic in your expectations.... Anyway, I don't think the quality of Bowie's output is going downhill at the moment. IMO, Outside is his best album since 1980, and the tour his best tour since 1976.
Dara O'Kearney (daraok@iol.ie)
Dublin, Ireland - Tuesday, December 10, 1996 at 11:11:36 (EST)
Dara: I can't say for sure if age is the issue. It just seems that way with the playing ability of the musicians I mentioned. I payed big bucks to see each of these three at one point in their later years, and was really let down each time. Should they (have) retire(d)? Nah, they've got every right to play for as long as they live. I've just got my opinion, that's all.

Okay: if there are any other Irish Bowie fans reading (either of you), Marty Whelan is digging some Bowie out of the archives for his TV show tomorrow night. I imagine it'll be that interview he did with Bowie just before he went onstage at Slane in '87. And UTV is broadcasting three hours from Phoenix Festival '96 on Thursday, featuring, according to the TV Guide, "David Bowie, The Prodigy, Fun Lovin' Criminals and many others".

Emilio: what a bummer!!! While "Fashion" from that awards was brilliant (I loved Gail Ann's high backing vocals), the real highlight of the night was "Little Wonder" and the incredible reception Bowie squeezed out of a crowd that had sat apathethetically throughout the rest of the show and the other acts. Hel: What's the story with your birthday greeting for David. The world awaits with bated breath!! Robot Monster: I read the point you made. Is the issue age or quality? In other words, do you think your favourite jazz musicians should automatically retire because they've reached a certain age, or because the quality of their stuff has dropped off?

Boo hoo, I can't IRC tonight w/Adrian Belew. Please someone tell him that this new album is amazing. Also, Dara made a comment about how no one complains about jazz musicians as they get older. I kinda have to disagree, as many of my jazz heroes got pretty lame in their latter years. Miles, Dizzy, Horace Silver all did (or in the case of Horace, currently are), sub-standard work in their later years. But I'm talking more about their actual playing than compositional abilities.

Noam, I WOULD like you to save that for me if you can! Thanks!! As for David's being 50, SO WHAT? But from Ido's perspective, I realize it seems different, being 50, than it will when he gets close to it himself. It is just the narrow perspective of 'youth.' No one expects classical musicians to retire (unless they chose to!) so there is absolutely no reason why David should (unless he choses to!) He is still making good music! Long live the REAL king of rock'n'roll!! Hel

Ido--David Bowie is the only one who is making exciting and innovative music 'out there'and who are we to say and judge that he should retire? Of all the things you've said, that's the ......oh, nevermind.

I strongly disagree with Ido's "Retire cos you're 50" view. Why should he? It seems to me that people only level this charge at musicians, and rock/pop musicians at that. Nobody ever suggested that Sean Connery or Jack Nicholson should've retired when they hit the big 5-0. Or people don't go up to painters: "Well, you're 50, so here's your cards". Or jazz buffs don't get all uptight about their heroes blowing on into their 80s. Or you don't see people hassling Philip Glass to retire because of his age? So why pick on pop musicians? This ageist "youth is everything" culture seems pretty shallow to me.

Hi there, this was a review in Billboard for a single. Havent heard much about this one.... THE HUSH ``Golden Years'' (3:56)< Shanachie Now here's a fun twist on a familiar song. The Hush takes a David Bowie chestnut and reinvents it with a jazzy beatnik vibe. This interpretation is a tad jarring at first, but it ultimately gets under your skin in the most pleasant way. Perfect for college radio, this intriguing band also offers a kicky original tune, ``Possessed.'' In all, a single that leaves the listener wanting to hear a lot more.

db's Pepsi commercial was a take on the Movie Wierd science, where ths nerdy guy creates a hot babe via the computer.(I forget who was Who) But he was also in another commercial for the coffe genration if my twisted memory can recall besides all those episodes of Hogan's heroes and Three's Company. Anyway it just showed db during Serious Moonlight tour During Cracked Actor holding the Skull. It was brief and spliced with many images but that's what I recall-any Confirmation? Anyway as to being old or young and making music--forget about it: Mile Davis, Gil Evans, and that's just the begining Ella Fitzgerald, B.B. King. And Don't Doubt that Mick and Keith will Keep the Vodoo Lounge open all nite, as will Paul and Linda will be singing about there Brave Face--David can at least (and much more) make original and compelling music

St. Frisky, CA USA - Monday, December 09, 1996 at 16:36:41 (EST)
Ramona, yes, it's true about the Pepsi commercial. I only saw it once but will never forget it. David is a nerdy scientist (and you now that got my bubble machine aflutter!), and then transforms into the suppossedly hunky 1987 version of Bowie and dances & sings Modern Love w/Turner. I was in a hospital waiting room when I saw it, and felt bad that I was suppossed to be worrying about my relative in surgery and not excited over some guy on the telly. All ended well, though. Me and a bunch of other girls did the same thing when we went to see Twin Peaks. Between the four of us, we had seen a few episodes each, so we tried to piece together the "story". Hey, I liked Showgirls, because it was so trashy and nothing was sacred.

It's true Ramona. David was in a Pepsi commercial. Modern Love was the song featured in it - if this poor old mind can remeber back that far. I think it was damged beyond repair by watching Showgirls.

St. Frisky, CA USA - Monday, December 09, 1996 at 14:56:21 (EST)
AND SHE SHALL SAY: Thanks Dara. At least now I know I'm not losing what's left of my mind. I actually saw the movie with my mother (!) and I couldn't stop laughing at how horrible the acting was. You're not the only one who does odd things for love of David; I sat thru Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me (never even having seen any of the TV episodes, so I had no clue what was going on) just for that little 1 minute or so clip of David, and I couldn't understand a word he said! Anyway, Little Wonder, I think the reason that the parties responsible for those cheap jokes about David are just bitter becasue they can't find a better job than writing for Comedy Central. And Ido, I'm DAMN glad that David's still making music when he's SO BLOODY OLD!! Puts most of what's out there (that is supposed to appeal to those of us stuck in our 20s) to shame. Also, I was wondering about the *different* artwork that was supposed to be featured in Outside. I bought the *cardboard* edition, but I heard that the one that came in the jewel case had different artwork. If anybody can tell me what there's had, I'd appreciate it. One more thing (and then I promise to shut up), back in the glory days of the Glass Spider tour David was supposed to have made a commercial for Pepsi (he plays a man who falls asleep at his computer when all of a sudden Tina Turner comes in and gives him a Pepsi). Is this actually true? love-on ya!
Ramona (rgardea@ggu.edu)
St. Frisky, CA USA - Monday, December 09, 1996 at 14:52:20 (EST)
Ramona: The part of Showgirls featured IAOA was in a disco scene, near the start of the movie, where the main female character was dancing with some guy shortly after she arrived in Vegas. There was only about 20 seconds of the song and unless you knew the song and were looking for it, you'd never have recognised it as Bowie. I am ashamed to admit that I sat through the entire film just for that. Worse, my wife sat through it with me, and gave me a damn good kicking when she got me home for making her watch such a dreadful movie.

I think that making rock/pop/post modern music after the age of 50 is a little pathetic. I think David has been saying what he had to say and contributed very largly to music, also pushing it a few steps ahead many times in his career, but music died 20 years ago. Happy Birthday David!

But really, the guy is a financial consultant who has a radio talk show at the station where Rush began his "political" career. They showed some nice concert clips from the Outside tour. He mentioned that the investors would "be betting on Bowie's...*staying* power..." He didn't sound too convinced. But hey, anything to get Bowie on the 6 am news.

But it wasn't to be. It turned out they were just making fun of him and his new bond thingie. They called him a 'long-past juvenile success' and said he'd be promoting new products and franchises like the 'Jean Genie Garage Door Opener' and the 'Ziggy Starbucks Coffee Shop'. They also showed a clip of him from the eighties, very unflattering, and pretty much said he was crazy of he thought he could still be popular into the 21st century. The segment only lasted about a minute, and i was too angry to remember all of it...I think THEY'RE the juvenile ones, to be poking fun at such a great artist!!!" -- well, after i wrote that, i couldn't get online for ages, so maybe some others of you have seen it by now...(it came on at one in the afternoon, eastern time) But anyways, i have to go...

So, since your mother was covering your eyes during Showgirls, did you managed to see *any* of it? On the serious tip, I have a compilation called The Best of Grunge Rock (ack!) that was released in 1993 by Priority Records. It includes a live version of TM's Baby Can Dance. Does anyone know when and where this version was recorded? I've been too lazy to compare it to anything I have, so I was hoping someone would have such inane information swirling around the top of their head. Thanks.

Sorry about that everybody, but I just got oh so excited for a minute there; besides, I've just gotten out of a 3 hour all-or-nothing final exam and I'm just a teensy bit wired (even chopped off the end of my email there). I think that Siamese cats definitely hold the market when it comes to brattiness. I just found out that the I'm Afraid of Americans song was on the Showgirls soundtrack. Does anybody remember what part of the movie this was at? I don't.

Which do you folks prefer: the song Outside or the original version that TM did in '89, called Now? Hey Trinia, I just got even more stuff today! Sorry I've been spacing on mailing your mag.

I don't get it - If people pay a total of $50,000,000 and then get it back, with some intrest rate, then what do they get from it? I don't beleive the intrest is too high, is it supposed to work just on poeple's good will to see David's album? Or maybe the intrest is high. Dono. Ta-ta.

My last take on EARTHLING--I will be away this weekend--For Ramona, Hel, Sara, Trinia, Jenn, Evan, Dara & the gang--Enjoy! In Greece as in Central America & southeastern Asia--The SEVEN SATELLITE STARS stood at the zenith on New Years Eve as if to "select" the god of the New Year--TOM FOOL--Not a Poor Dunce but the newborn god, a visionary & shining star (Baby Universal). Egyptian texts allude to th 7 planetary spheres as pursuers/judges of men. The Dead had to speak the NAMES of these 7 eyes on high to pass their critical exams and enter Happy Land. The 7 who made the LAWS sent the DEAD MAN WALKING his death summons & a promise of reincarnation. Bye Bye Love. Moondust (a substance that brings the dead to life) will cover you--Sweet sweet Dove!

This little item was on the Adam Curry's Sleaze page: DAVID BOWIE is set to float himself on the stock exchange. The legendary British rocker has been considering the possibility of packing his future royalties into an asset-backed bond issue to be sold within the next few months. This means that instead of waiting for royalties from record sales, Bowie would receive cash up front from institutional investors willing to pay a total of $50 million for a piece of ZIGGY STARDUST. Once that sum, along with interest, is earned back for the investors, future royalties would go directly to Bowie. But an industry expert, ROBERT AUEWAERTER, who helps manage $11 billion in taxable-bond funds at VANGUARD GROUP OF INVESTMENT COMPANIES in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, says, "This isn't a joke, is it? I wouldn't know where to begin to analyze this. It's a little far afield for us." But Bowie's businessman manager WILLIAM ZYSBIAT is so confident there are several sources of royalties - such as copyright and publishing revenues - to support the $50 million, he began paying fees for a deal months ago. We shall see… Eccentric British singer

Who is tOMMY? Child of TIBET--GIFT from the sun--REINCARNATION of Christ. Lady Soul (Mary) showed tOMMY 3 roads--one leading to HEAVEN, One to HELL, and a 3rd to THE HAPPY LAND-He remained there for SEVEN YEARS! He became a great visionary/poet/prophet! He was also tOM tHUMB of course (known as the LITTLE WONDER) He had great fun in the happy land where only children play--where the doors are closed to Mr Grownup and other mean old GIANTS! He was a self-sacrificing god of the EARTH and a SEXUAL MAGICIAN--His death after harvest marked cycle of seasons & onset of earth's barrenness

Hallo all (and yes, I am studying, really). I'd give my first-born child to be able to buy a piece of Bowie (provided of course that David father the child first). Trinia, I just saw the pic of your cat; I have one just like that (I just hope yours isn't as bratty as mine). Emilio, you mean to tell me that fed up doesn't tell the truth? Glad to see you're back Nevada. Have fun on vacation Anelise; I didn't get a chance to see any of my Bowie vids until last week when I was home and I'm still glowing from the experience. So now you know about my little secret, huh Robot Monster? Actually, what really kicked it off for me is when he started kissing that skull (mmm mmm mmm). And Mr. Phoenix is sooo dreamy, isn't he? love-on ya!

Grace is my name! I loved her before I knew her name. They asked if I knew his name. I never knew his last name. When I believed in nothing--I called her name--Nobody knows her, or knows her name. I am with name--forget my name! I'm the twisted name on Garbo's eyes--Don't you know my name? Did you ever call my name--just by mistake?

Hi, Trinia. I'm fine. I don't know about Pedro, I haven't heard from him in quite a while, but I hope he's fine, too. Contrary to rumours spread by fed up in his Upsville reviews, Pedro does not follow me closely all the time. He lives in Spain and I live in Brazil. But he's a good friend. Loved your picture on the birthday card. What's the cat's name?

Little Wonder, I'm afraid of Americans--Loneliness in a free society, would be nice to have company!

I'M BACK!! And as addicted as ever. This birthday card is coming along great...pity there's not too many pics, but I know Bowie will really apreciate it....or at least laugh, and if he's happy then we're happy too right? Oh yeah check out the 1997 Bowie Calendar if you can....The front cover is (from a female perspective), to die for and in general the pics are great especially the recent ones from his last tour!! Also TRINIA I remember you asked me about Strange Fascination Bowie biograpghy....well my bookshop contacted Liverpool University Press who said that the author David Buckley is making final touches to the manuscript so the book hasn't actually been published yet.....but it is definately coming!

The VISIONARY appears out of the shadows--no longer STONE-blind. "I could fly into the eye of god on high"--His burning eye will see me through. In Italian culture the Visionary has the power to cast THE EVIL EYE--Envidere means both to make evident as well as to entrap/envy! Pay the private eye! A speck of dust just settled in my eye--It doesn't matter I've seen everything any way--Even a glass eye in a duck's ass can see that! You've promise in your loving eye. He's got his eye on your soul--The Visionary attempts impossibilities/impassabilities, awakens the soul-less, sets you on FIRE, makes the invisible-visible and melts the heart of STONE! Not turning a blind eye to infanticide, Nathan avenges the death of grace? All the concrete DREAMS IN my Mind's Eye!

Thursday 12/5/96--Tricksters abound in Native American and African American Spirituality and Folklore. The SPIDER AND THE DOG (Coyote) are two of the best known tricksters. In the tarot the trickster-fool whose number is ZERO represents pure potential. He/She is considered a visionary/dreamer--a NOBODY who stands OUTSIDE the social order. Often choosing a life of voluntary exile, the trickster is now FREE to devise a subversive alternative to mainstream society. Not unlike Robin Hood most tricksters inhabit the space between the ROGUE AND THE GUARDIAN ANGEL. Not answerable to the false morality of his culture--he/she takes the LAW into his/her own hands! In the world of the trickster thieving is an act of GRACE!--Looking forward to earthling--Happy Birthday Sara!

I have no problem posting here, except I won't post my home address. I've decided next time I go across the border I'm going to buy that cd and maybe another. I'm not really interested in trading for pictures right now, if you somehow send me a list of the music you have and your snail mail address. Then when I get the cd we can trade proper like. Unless you want your own copy of the cd, Its 59.99 US dollars, a double cd. Have you tried to locate it in Denmark? If its helpful the company who put it out is called 'Moonraker'. Let me know soon.

I have a question for you? What is your all time favorite David Bowie composition? Album(s)? I believe that my fave song would have to be a toss up between 1) Strangers When We Meet (Suburbia version), "Heroes", or TVC 15!! My favorite album? Perhaps "Low" or "1. Outside".

Dara, I agree with you about the likelihood of Earthling containing a bonus disc. Plus, considering how much his other three official live albums were toyed with, I don't know if I'd want it anyway.

Robot Monster! I thought we were going to keep that little thing about the young'uns a secret! Silly me to trust you (and yes, Feef, I'm very silly :) ). Hel, I placed a couple of orders for Diamond Nebula; they said I should hear back from them in about a month (oh the modern technological wonders that comprise special ordering books). My last class was today; now I get to focus exclusively on worrying about finals (goody goody). And what happened to the Disco King song? I kinda wanted to hear that. Oh well. love-on ya!

Noam: I've seen that ad. too, and it's not DB singing Come On Come On (although he is featured on the compilation according to the ad.). It's Gary Glitter singing "Come On Come On" (I think the song is The Leader Of The Gang). Bonnie: as much as I and I'm sure everyone else here would like to see a bonus live CD, I don't agree it would be a brilliant marketing idea. They'd have to charge more (like they did for 1. Outside Version 2, which hardly set the world alight), and that would most likely turn off more not-so-committed fans than it would turn on. Just check out how Prince's new 3 CDs for the price of 2 deal is dying a death. If there is an official live CD on the way (which I very much doubt: some gremlin having a little fun with us all), it should be released separately.

AUSTRLALIAN BOWIE FANS

Earthling Will Be Released in Australia on January 30th, 1997. The first single off the album will be Little Wonder. The Telling Lies single released in Europe will not be released locally (although is available on import). Although nothing has been confirmed yet, a tour will almost certainly hit Oz in March/April 1997.

I got a copy of a CD called A Close Circle of Friends. Does anybody know about thi? It contains most of the tracks from Absolutely Rare (see Eiichi's What's New page) excluding the "dry" mixes (which are probably fakes) but seems to include one or two extra tracks from Boston 72 and an alternate or practice take to Andy Warhol from Hunky Dory.

wow, interesting track listing on Bassman's web page...is it true though. Glad to see "Afraid of Americans", terrific song, largely ignored song on a largely ignored soundtrack....what about the rumors of a double CD? That would be a great marketing idea to get "old" fans to buy the new stuff...

In response to Matt's concerns--I agree--I should consider the fact that a few or maybe just one individual(s) is vehemently opposed to my lyrical wanderings. It was my intention to contribute 2 messages a day highlighting particular themes that show up in bowie songs again and again. I thought perhaps this might spark some interest. For the most part it has. I have corresponded with several people and we have exchanged thoughts/ideas db related. Perhaps I should moderate my enthusiasm. In the excitement generated by the up coming Earthling maybe I have transgressed a boundary! I shall make an effort toward brevity and post more mundane and practical questions and considerations...For now I shall take a break from the guestbook.

Just a little thing that I learned the other day...Does anyone know that the song "Move On" from the Lodger album is actually "All the Young Dudes" played backwards? This may be common knowledge to some people, but I thought it was rather interesting. Kind of makes me want to dig out the old record player and give it a whirl!

Tuesday--12/3/96 For Trinia, Ramona, Sara, Hel, Little Wonder, Dara, Ramsey and all my fellow db devotees--In celebration of the latest track listing for EARTHLING: Earth keeps on rolling--I duck the shots tilt the world--It's the terror of knowing what this world is about--Bevan tried to change the nation. Sonny wants to turn the world--The earth is a bitch. We've finished our news. I've lived all over the world. I've left every place. The world is on a corner--waiting for jobs. You've got to have a plan in the world of today. We came from the farmlands to live in this city. We walked proud and lustful in this resonant world--Wonder where the third world went? News guy wept and told us earth was really dying--Look out on a green world--Windows and Wives. Some of the houses around here still have inhabitants in them--I'm not sure if they're from this country or not--Sometimes I feel the whole world is queer--sometimes but always in vain--Planet Earth is blue and theres nothing I can do!

Got a fantastic idea.The birthday card is great but how about we have the first ever Internet birthday party.We could all meet here at the same time on David's birthday and have a drink or six in David's honour. Maybe Evan will give us permission to use the guest-book as a chat site just this once so that anyone who cannot access the chat sites (like me) can join in the fun. Those that don't enjoy a bit of fun need not turn up. Could be a bit of fun. Expect a lot of spelling errors as everyone gets a little bit tipsy. Can we do it Evan,can we? Please please please.

Looks like there is a lot of exciting news today in the guestbook. First, I hope that the the tracks not listed on Bassman's page for Earthling either end up on the album or become b-sides. And I'm Afraid of Americans? Hope it's a new recording. Also, I was checking out the Soundtrack page, and Evan, you don't have Basquiat listed. It has a different version of Small Plot of Land on it. A question about soundtracks. Last year I read in the newsgroup about a Tin Machine song that appeared on the soundtrack of an Australian film, and that it was an early recording of an already released song. Anyone have any information? I've since forgotten which song and film. Hoping for that Iggy set...

I haven't thought of that Feef, but that's not it, 'cause that's a song I would naturally identify. It sounds like he says "So..." and then shouts slowly "Come on/Come on/Come on/Come on... Etc." It's hard like that, but if you anyone saw the TV ad, they should know what I meen. Anyway, this track listing is great TVC15, but no Sattelite Of Love? And no Baby Universal? That would quite those who suggest it's a cover versions album, but I would like to get them anyway. Darn.

Here it is: Little Wonder, Looking For Sattelites, Battle For Britain [The Letter], Seven Years In Tibet, Dead Man Walking, Telling Lies [New Version], The Last Thing You Should Do, I'm Afraid Of Americans [New Version], Law [Earthling On Fire]. So, there it is 9 songs. But, where is "Bring Me The Disco King"? Anyways, this album looks fantastic. Why can't it be January 20th tomorrow?

Hello.You know the current issue of Marie Claire has a little ditty on the day in the life of Iman.Now even though it's mainly on her,there's a bit on David and how he and she met.Since it's on the last page anyways,I suggest you just read it off the newstand.There's only one picture of them together but it's much too tiny to be worth clipping.

When all the world was very young--the sun drips blood on the seedy young knights. I was very smart--broke the gentle hearts of many young virgins--Kept my young blood rising. Think about the places perhaps where a young man could be--Baby you're so young--Gee my life's a funny thing, am I still too young? I'm a young man at odds with the bible. I realized that God's a young man too. Nights are warm and the days are young--Passionate bright young things--Watching the young advance in all electric.

Due to an error on my part, I managed to overwrite all of the captions and picture submission methods for everyone who has submitted birthday wishes. Fortunately, I could recover almost everybody's caption from an old copy.

However, everybody who has submitted a birthday greeting should go check that their caption and picture submission method is still correct by going to:

Niteflight, although I can't confirm the news about Iggy, I just had to say that it is very encouraging. Many of his albums are out of print (Arista stuff, Instinct), and Lust for Life and The Idiot are Pricebusters now. The Arista albums are available on pricey imports, so I've been clinging to my beaten vinyl. PLEASE let this be true.

Monday--12/2/96 Impermanent toys like peace and war--a gentle FACE you've seen before--You're face to face with the man who sold the world--I've got to keep my veil on my face. Do you think that your face looks the same? When the kiss of the comb tears your face from the bone. Putting on a face thats new--Don't like your new face. Your face is a mess. I like your face in the crowd--the face of seduction was you. She got a camouflaged face and no money. All I got is someone's face. Your lips cut a smile on your face--your scalding face. The wind blows on your cheek--The day laughs in your face.

well, weather or not this gossip about a live album is a romour or tease of some sort I believe we the fans deserve a live album. the last one was 18 years ago! so let us only hope. As for the Iggy albums I heard they are all going to be remastered and redone so I've been holding out for now. Any Confirmation?

Hallo All! JeanMarie I got your Christmas card today. Thanks for the Bowie clippings! They're great! I wonder if rg really is Reeves Gabrels....I hope it is, because Reeves is just as cool as Bowie!

RobotMonster, Blah Blah Blah is entirely coincidental.. :) They get picked randomly from my list of album covers each night.

In case anyone here doesn't read the main page (you know who you are!), you should be aware there are only nine days left for the printed version of the birthday card. Get those greetings in here ASAP!.

Amid all of this debate concerning Blah Blah Blah, gee, guess what today's featured work is? Trying to tell us something, Evan? Baby Grace, I did in fact choke on some pumpkin pie, but a bottle of drano cleared that right up. Thanks for asking. Madame Sand, hope your taping problems (!) fixed themselves. I haven't gotten around to checking out my copy of Live Dance yet, sorry. I will soon.

Ramona, have you received my tape? Please post when you do. Noam, that line could be from "Hang On to Yourself." That's the first song that comes to mind.

Did anyone from around here saw in MTV Europe the commercial about the new glam rock compilation? Just at the end there is a short clip of what sounds like db, singing "Come on/Come on". Is it him? What song is it? I guess I can look around the site and search these lyrics, but it's more interesting this way. Ta-ta.

Here is the little frenchie,back from a weekend of turkey non-eating!I saw the Ru Paul show on saturday,and I must admitt that Iman is a very beautiful,witty person.Didn't talk much about little Davey,though...She just talked about her makeup line and the problems in Somalia...The interwiew was very short,and those who missed it didn't miss a lot,I think.I'm sorry we had some little fights in this otherwise very friendly guestbook,but as far as I am concerned,it is over now,and I hope the aggressive people have gone back to their caves...Could it be possible that rg was Reeves Gabrels himself?Please,rg,tell us who you are,and if it is a reliable piece of info you gave us...A DOUBLE ALBUM!THAT WOULD BE GREAT!WHAT A FANTASTIC WAY TO START THE NEW YEAR FOR ALL OF US CUTE LITTLE BOWIE FANS!EVAN,I hope you had a great holiday, and thank you again for all your great work!HI THERE,Robot Monster,Bowie Maniac,Ramona!Are you guys all right,or did you choke on the turkey and pumpkin pie?

Monday--12/2/96 GOD is on top of it all--GOD And MAN--No Confessions! Please Saviour, Saviour Show us--Where the flesh meets the spirit world. Of all the saints alive--Don't I feel like a saint alive--God may look the other way today--Don't tell god your plans--God never laughs at my jokes. She talked to god--She tells you she's god's grammy--My god, She shook me cold. Oh Lord--Just let him see me--Lord Lord let him hear me. They say he has two gods. With the help of the good lord--We can all pull on through. God only knows, Lord I kneel and offer you my word--I believe oh lord. My friends talk of glory, untold dreams--where all is god and God is just a word!

Re Evan's New Page Entry December 2, 1996: There are only nine (9)! more days left to submit your birthday greeting in the printed version of the birthday card to be sent to David for his 50th. Also, I'm on the way to randomizing the online version of the card... you can see the first efforts here. For some reason, Matt, you always end up on top :-) I have heard a lot of people say this about Matt!

Just perusing the birthday card submissions. May have to remove my entry, as communally I feel we come across as a total FREAKSHOW. I include myself, although anonymously, in this assessment.

Hello Robot Monster.I saw(and taped)Ru Paul last night.He said that he was a huge fan of David Bowie and when he was younger,he'd take a marker and write "Bowie" everywhere.As for the interview with Iman,it was short.She didn't say much about David except that she saw him in concert in 1976 and didn't go backstage.She is glad she didn't.Then,they met in 1990,in LA through a hairdresser.The rest of the interview was about her cosmetics line and her recent charity work in Somalia. :)

Spiders From Mars Album: Titled "Spiders From Mars" has no connection with Bowie except by some narrative on the cover ( "...born from the rib of the rock God Bowie", "... the band which backed David Bowie to stardom...", etc) by Chris Welch of Melody Maker, and the band's name of course. The album was released in 1976 and the Spiders were Pete McDonald (vocals), Woody Woodmansey (drims), Dave Black (guitar) and Trevor Bolder (bass) - his sideburns are probably naturally white these days! - with a special thanks message to Mike Garson (keyboards). The 10 tracks were written by band members and it was recorded at Trident Studios, London by Pete Kelsey and Gerry Smith.

I'm taking a swing at this shadow of mine--Hey hey it's a dreaming--Send back my dream test baby--She's my main feature. Life's still a dream--It was long long ago and I can't touch your name. I'm an idiot for you. I'm a breakage inside--feeling like a shadow--Angel or devil I don't care--I'm the shadow man, the jumping jack--the man who can and don't look back. This is your shadow on my wall--It falls across shrinking smiles. I was drowning so slowly--one step in front of your shadow. Don't let the sun blast your shadow/shadow love was quick and clean--I don't care which shadow gets me. Run for the shadows--You step from the shadows--You hear the command. Living in the shadow of vanity--I'll clip your wings. A zero in the fabric of time--you make love only once but dream and dream.
