Spaceboy! Come chat with me! BowieManiac, sorry I wasn't around earlier. NOAM, the poster wasn't all that gigantic, but it was very nice of the guy to give me one.

Today had to be one of the worst days of my life. I went to Calgary and talked to a bunch of shitheads in teh military and watched a bunch of videos on military occupations that my stepmom seems to think I'm interested in. Then because she wanted to have her navel pierced, I wasn't able to go downtown and meet Alys in person. Fuck! And then we went to HMV and I found teh CD I've been looking for for ages now, and my dad wouldn't buy it for me. Then when I got home, I had a huge phonebill in teh mail!. GRRRRRR! And now nobody I want to talk to is on the chat. Now waht else could possibly go wrong for I go to bed tonight? Cardiac arrest? Pneumonia? Impotency? Divorce? When will all this madness finally end?

Anyone here knows why cant I enter to EFNET? Each server tells me that I'm unauthrized... Don't know why. Something with the IDNET. And Alys, are you refering to the large super-great poster? A CD store over here (Where I bought Earthling) has one, but those bastards won't keep it for me. I asked them for a million posters, they never keep it. Un-nice of them.

I feel lucky to have a sometimes-halfway-decent radio station out here. Not only do they play much Bowie (especially on the "flashback lunch"...a new wave/modern rock show), but they tend to play little wonder a lot. I need to start emailing the DJs and begging them to play Dead Man Walking and Looking For Satellites now :) Mademoiselle "ack, the deej called space oddity starman again" foo

MlleFoo: you captured the essence beautifully... that's how I pictured it (sorta). ALYS: I am sooooo jealous! hmmm... maybe the cute (but unfortunately married) guy who owns the awesome cd store in town will give it to me.... I'll just have to put on a great "I'll love you forever if you give me Bowie stuff" smile. I think we should all buy an extra copy of Earthling and send it to our fave radio stations... maybe then they would find it in their hearts to play it.

Don't dispair about it. It does realley suck when one listens to how great EARTHLING is, and it seems the commercial world won't give it a shot. It'll sell its millon or so copies, but that's not the point! The point is it a FUCKING GREAT ALBUM!!!! And all the little piss ant pussy station manegers in American Radio are just bunch of A------s with B-------s for their brains. I felt the same way with BTWN and Outside. If there is some consolation the music Industry is in total dispair because there are no new Nirvanas or Pearl Jams that crank out triple platium albums. REM last album was their best and it sank like a stone. They, who are in the music business are wetting their pants and would'nt know good music if it slaaped them upside the head

Re: that NY guy's comments about Bowie going back underground. Well, that certainly seems true: His album sank like a stone on the new Billboard chart. I'm sure Dara will tell us all what it means. But it can't be unexpected. The bottom line is that it never ceases to amaze me what a bizarre business the music industry is: Getting close to a month after Earthling is out, and I have yet to hear anything from it on a commercial radio station. Maybe I should get out of NYC. But from the comments I've seen 'round here, so-called alt-rock stations around the US regard Bowie as an influential, but currently overhyped, Hall-of-Famer unworthy of clogging up a soundtrack featuring NIN and Marilyn Manson. This reality is very sad. Earthling would light up these dreary radio formats if it had half a chance. I found the Billboard chart news quite depressing.

A Bowie qoute from 1976 (I think): "Personally I started out playing saxophone and I was trying to make up my mind whether I wanted to play rock'n'roll or jazz, as I wasn´t that very good at jazz and I could fake it pretty well in rock'n'roll, I started playing rock'n'roll". Love that man. Love - on ya!

Today is a HAPPY day!! I was CD store browsing during my prep class today, and I found out that Little Wonder won't be in till next Tuesday.....*sigh*...that's the only bad thing. Good things are that I bought the very weird (now that I've listened to it) Lost Highway soundtrack. Bowie is good, especially the cool reprise version of I'm Deranged. Trent Reznor and NIN are great too, the only bad part of the CD is Marilyn Manson *shudder, shudder*. Now to the best part, the guy at the CD store gave me an Earthling promo poster!! :-) :-) I could have kissed him! Now, I have Earthling on my wall as well as in my CD holder!

BowieManiac, it'll be great to finally be expecting those pics! STARLUCK, I'm going to have to really sit down and think about the next part of our story! It totally surprised me! SPACEBOY, email me about tomorrow, before tomorrow, or else I won't be able to meet you or anything. And, I added to that petition...I'd love for that Anthology to be released!!

I think I know what an interview with bowie from howard stern would be like: Bowie: " so I have this t'riffic new album that utilizes jungle and percussion to..." Howard: "yea but dave, do you masturbate to rolling stones records and dream abut sleeping with mick again? I like to masturbate, Dave. do you? I am the king of all media, and I like to masturbate. so dave, how about it?" Bowie: "uhm" and then he'll start laughing maniacally at howard because he's acting like such a bloody prat. ---mademoiselle "private parts exposed" foo

CHRIS, the rift from the Superman is supposed to be buried somewhere on Dead Man Walking (at least according to what's over at the official board). I've nothing against Rosie; after all, the woman convinced Donny Osmond to dress up in a big puppy suit and get down on his knees to sing to her; that deserves a modicum of respect at the very least. At any rate, I find most TV atrocious, and that's why I like it (notwithstanding the fact that I don't have access to a TV right now). My eyesight is certain to fail me in my advanced age, and I'd like to see as much of Dave hocking his wares as I can, wherever I can. And Spaceboy, you need not apologize to Robot Monster; I like her riled up, since it's much easier for me to control her that way.

Look Guys I did'nt mean to piss everyone off about my Rosie opinion. I just feel embarassed to see him on these lame talk shows. Saturday Nite Live was awful, but than again every band is pretty lame on SNL cause the lighting is horrendous and the by the time the band is warmed up it's time to skip to commercial. Jay Leno and Jamie Fox could'nt even deal with db. (Although the performance was better than SNL). It just seems nice that bowie is going back underground, eventhough I understand that he wants to get his tunes across to audiances, but Everything in America is always reduced to TV and it makes me want to puke!!!!!!!!Any Thoughts?

i agree with Gecko, rosie's okay, but she couldn't carry a tune for her life and if she tries to sing with David, he'll blow her away.

I kinda like Rosie... but I will shoot her if she sings with David... there are some people she should just let go solo... I think David should go on the Howard Stern Show... it would be interesting to see how they'd react to each other. Spaceboy: you don't like Bush? I'm hurt. I guess they would be cliche if you haven't heard the whole disk (16 stone). Gargoyles are a girl's best friends...

On Radio One Bowie said the riff from The Supermen was somewhere on Earthling. Anyone found it yet? Also what do people think the next Bowie album will be like? If it's just Bowie and Eno, it might be a lot of ambient instrumentals. This would be a strange way to follow the very uplifting Earthling. Keep on rocking in a glam, funky, post-modern, arty way!

Gee, I think Rosie's nice. Sometimes I watch her and Oprah with my mama.... Anyway, as for Dave "whoring" himself on talkshows, etc., here's my theory. We all seem to forget that David is very much a Capricorn, after all, and there will always be a part of him that is comfortable and adept at playing the gentleman conservative.... Why do you think he looks so good in a suit? Mmm... doublebreasted. Mmm mmm...Armani.... I have this lovely sexy picture of him in a pillarbox bright red suit, designer unknown, from the Glass Spider tour. Fa-fa-fa-fa.... It's an eighties kinda day, kiddies--time to go restart Seven and the Ragged Tiger! Sure, ignore me looking for my old comrades--Maurice, are you out there...? Maybe you've gone back to Germany. Don't make me resort to using your real name.... Hey, I went on a date last night! It was sweet! Dinner and a movie! How quaint.... Aah, cute guy and he's running a Shadowrun game too!

Little Wonder is still one of the videos playlisted for MTV Europe's Afternoon request show (which goes out for two hours from 16.00 CET (15.00 GMT) each day).

Not only that, but Jump They Say is also playlisted (as one of the classic videos). You can phone or fax a request for either video to the numbers advertised in the programme, or alternatively, you can email a request to them at selectvideos@mtvne.com

They open both their phone lines and their email account 15 minutes before the show starts.

Saw that someone - don´t remember who - was thinking about doing a PhD in Bowie, where I live there is a guy who´s doing a doctracte in Bowie. He has this theory about the postmodernism (hope I spell this right) is being reborn through David. In case you´re puzzeled, I am a girl, even though my hotmail is shoeguy. Bye and love on - ya!

I have to agree with the last point - it doesn't matter which show David's on - they're all the same anyway. In fact, I think all these shows are terrible, whether it's Leno, Letterman or O'Brien. They start up with a monologue, then some "funny" gags before introducing guests they often seem to not know anything about. I saw Bowie on Leno recently, he tried to run an actual conversation but it just went flat right away. How can you talk to an index-carded talkshow-host who's only true concern is when to have the next commercial-break?

this seems to be a lot of unnecessary speculation. / who really cares where David performs, as long as He is there. / any forum is acceptable, and rosie o'donnel is as legitimate a talk show host as anyone else (none of them really impress me anyway). / spaceboy, i wish i could see the clash reuniting, but sadly, i don't think it is conceviable. / what a depressing world in which we live........................

Hey, Matt, and all your other lovers of woolly animals. Matt, as you predicted, I am indeed currently adding Oz to my chartwatch. Reason being LW has just appeared in the singles chart down under at #94. That might seem like all that hot to the rest of you, but I'm sure Matt will vouch for me when I say that's way better than Bowie singles go down under this decade. IIRC, it's only the third Bowie single in ten years or so to chart (JTS got to 60 something and HS to 30 something). You can stop buying copies of the single now, Matt, your work is done.

I imagine DJ means both disc jockey and David Jones. Most of Bowie's lyrics have either no meaning or several, depending on the listener.

Geesh it's late. Looks like some people have awaken from their slumber. Spaceboy seems to be working on short term memory. Who cares you say? Ahem..."Rosie O'Donnell is a FAT COW! And I hope she reads this that stupid cunt!" Brilliant, shear brilliance, my boy, even if you do give her bonus points for her "cool musical guests". My point is that some people were quick to pass judgement on Rosie O'Donnell when her show is just as shallow and benign as anything else on television. I've grown numb to the countless stupid questions the american media (esp. television) puts to Bowie, so I just hope to get a song or two out of man whenever he's out hocking the merch. At least you all admit that you (just like me) plan on watching it.

I'd be happy just to see him on Sesame Street...but because of where I am, Bowie will never been seen on our TV. SO BE THANKFUL AND STOP WHINGING!

Well, we have a crisis on our hands here now don't we? DB on Rosie has caught up quite a stir! WHO CARES! As long as the man is exposed (or overexposed as some might think) I'm happy. I'm always wanting to see David on TV because I love the guy and would watch him pick his nose for the rest of my life if I could. And as for Robot Monster. FUCK YOU! We like our pedestal.

Who's on a pedestal here? All I said was I can't stand rosie O'donnell, and I think Spaceboy wrote back agreeing with me on that point. I don't have a problem with talk shows...I like watching a bunch of ingrate poor white trash argue about "jimmy he done slept with my mudder" as much as the next person :) Now, if David showed up on Geraldo and hit him in the nose with a chair, I'd definitely pay money to see that! :) ---Mademoiselle "oi oi oi!!"

I would like to point out that David's being on the Rosie O'donnell show will put his image in front of YOUNG children. I'm sure the thought of having new fans in a few years will make David's piggy bank (oink, oink) sing. My 6 year old is looking forward to seeing David on TV. (he doesn't stay up late enough to watch SNL or Letterman.) It is a real experience to see someone so young singing "Outside" and swinging his hips . David has to appeal to new audiences, even if it does mean going on a show that is rated "G"

The more opportunity I have to see David the better, who cares if its on day time tv, perhaps he will influence a different kind of people to listen to his music, whatever to sell a record, eh? And this Scot/Brit thing, I don't think it has anything on being Canadian and being called an American. Being called a Brit is not insulting. Later all you fetid folk.

All this talk of how awful it is that Bowie is going to appear on a daytime talk show I find a bit peculiar, considering the countless other shows Bowie has whored himself on over the years. What, daytime programming isn't nearly as "legit" as late night talk shows? No one throws a snit fit whenever Bowie is on The Tonight Show, hosted by someone who managed to make a year long joke out of the murder of two people. No one cares that Lettermen is a lame imitation of himself 13 years ago. No one cares that these shows are sponsered by corportate entities of questionable ethics. Bottom line is that it's all the same shameless promotion, and Bowie has never been shy about doing it, so get the fuck off your pedestals.

Rosie O'Donnell is a FAT COW! And I hope she reads this that stupid cunt! But the one thing about her show is that she has some good musical guests, Prince a month ago, and now David on Monday! Just to see David on TV instead of No Doubt, Bush, Spice Girls, and other shit like that, makes Spaceboy a very happy boy. I can tolerate Rosie for a day just to see my DB. I'm a fan and fans support their man!

Rosie O'Donnell triggers my gag reflex in such a way as to make bulemics jealous. I don't think I can even stomach her show even if there were a whole mob of David Bowies on it. Sorry, Dave, but that's where I draw the line. Uh, maybe if she promised not to sing along with him or threaten to go down on him (I hear she does that with every guest...and that thought alone would make me lose my lunch from ten years ago), I might go home and program the vcr so I don't miss His Bowieness.

David on Rosie March 3rd.... Yea it is a repugnant thought, but let's not forget what David was doing from Let's Dance to Never Let Me Down. Direct quote from press conference announcing Serious Moonlight tour.... "So I sold out? So what?" But what scares me the bloody most is that Rosie will want to sing with db!

Is it just me or has something gone screwy over at that Leo site? Also, German fans, please note, Bowie occupies the entire cover of MTV's German magazine XTreme, now in shops. Very bizarre picture. Inside, there are no less than 4 pages devoted to Bowie. Some interesting pics, but since the text is not an interview (just an article on how brilliant our boy is), it's not all that interesting. Headline is nice though - "Bowie - always different, always young".

My eyes have never glimpsed such sordid sights, such rampant disregard for the morals that we all cling to for dear life. It is indeed a very sick world. It's so sick that I won't even be able to see Iggy when he plays down in my home town (sure, it's over a month away, but it's the principle of the thing; I'll have to witness a more restrained performance for the people of this fair port city). Anyway, how's that Village People's version of Just a Gigolo, Robot Monster (and you dared to doubt my words)? Does it kick the ass out of Marlene's?

The hardwood floor was resounding in the synchronous steps of the Schneiders, and the building shook violently.

how can explain the ways I am living??? For I reside in a dwarf universe, and it is very cramped. Someone needs to come and repair my sunday afternoon, it was broken by some lady with a two edged ball, she didn't sound the alarm, so the kids went hungry. This universe does not exist, and i have proof. I found the evidence in the little white paper squares that happen to float in the moon pool at the town hall. I need no excuse to lie, I do it just fine without reason. I need to go drink the sea before I float off. If it's hard to understand I can develope a more legibale languge for the weak in a higher dimension. Just follow me in the direction you cannot point in on the Path with No Form. You cannot find enlightenment, it has to find you. Now i go to rest in my bed of absolute deluded vibrations of nothingness that makes up us all. I bid you all farewell.

Little Wonder: actually that's what we used to think Catterfeld meant (cat in the field), but I found out that it has its origins with the Chatten tribe who used to inhabit the area where the town of Catterfeld is located. SpaceGirl: nice poem. SpAcEbOy: we should pick up David and Iman (so I'm the only fan who actually likes Iman) and then go to Egypt. love, lizards, and leather.

Ack! Look at the mess we started with our banter, JeanMarie! For the sake of the others, I'd just like to state that I'm perfectly aware of the fact that many Scots see themselves as Scots, not Brits, and that JeanMarie in particular does (since we have discussed this topic privately in the past). And as an Irish person, I think it's great the Scots have their own identity and aren't afraid to assert it. I was just being mischievous with that last comment. It is interesting (and very appropriate) that Bowie is an old Scots name, even if David mispronounces. But as someone else said, David got the name from America, and a lot of European names got changed over there. I have met Americans with the same surname as me who pronounce it so differently that I only realised it was the same name when I saw it written down.

I never knew that The Village People were on the Just a Gigilo album until a certain someone pointed it out to me yesterday at a record swap. And his version of The Revolutionary Song is just Bowie singing that "la la la la la la" over and over. Damn it, we have the third worst smog in the nation in Sacramento. I think that ought to qualify us again for inclusion in the next Probable Tour Zone. Ramona, deer wouldn't be so frightening if you got out of Hunger City once in a while.

I'm working on them. As for my name, Catterfeld, it is German and everyone pronouces it "Catterfield" and I'm used to that... the only thing that bugs me is that my German prof, a native German, also says the Americanized mispronunciation...

JEANMARIE, the band No Doubt has (or is going to??) have a new album out called Spiders from Space. I guess that Bowie DOES get around.

As for the name pronounciation, he's still the same, regardless. Maybe we should just all call him DAVID JONES, and not worry about Bowie. :-)

I never bothered much about how to pronounce his name, and always said Bow-ee (After saying "boy" when I was MUCH younger, and, watch out, didn't like him) but now you got me a bit interested... It's just that I don't have the slightest clue about how to pronounce Boh-iee, or whatever, so why don't Even put a small WAV of the man telling his name out loud somewhere? ha?

Hallo Earthlings, I just posted the text from the Internet Singles Charts over on the forum, as it is rather long. In summary, LW is number one overall and if the chart is broken down as Rock/Alternative. You can also vote for Earthling (currently at #7) and Outside (currently at #46) on the album charts. Probably more significant in fact to vote for the album than the single.

Okay, I'm going to state the obviuos here, since I am rather good at it... Ol' David got his name from a Bowie KaNiff which he took because he wanted a sharp sounding name (no lie, bad pun) like Mick Jagger (another Ka-Niff). It hardly matters that the scots pronounce his surname Boo-ee (hey scots are allowed since it really is a scottish name), because David definitely pronounces it BOH-ee. As for us 'murikans all pronouncing bowie as Bouy...eeew, wuddaryatalkinabout? Only southerners (the one's who don't know anybetter, that is) do that. ---Mademoiselle "romp in the boothy" Foo

Falkirk, SCOTLAND - Monday, February 24, 1997 at 11:42:06 (EST)
Not wishing to be pedantic or nothing, but ALYS: the fact that Scots and Scots first and Brits second still makes them Brits. I'm Irish first, European second. But if someone says to me, "You're a European" I'm not going to get all snotty and say, no I'm Irish. Besides which, I think you're all taking this way too seriously. Dara's Irish like me, so I'm sure he knows full well both the political situation on Scotland and the fact that lots of Scots don't consider themselves Brits, so I imagine he was just pulling your leg. It is odd that a Canadian should choose to lecture an Irish person on Scots. And the thing is: at the end of the day it doesn't really matter how Scots pronounce Bowie - it's how David pronounces it himself that decides in this case what's right and what's wrong. And he always says BOE EEE. So there!

DARA, I think that Scots are Scots first and Brits second.

I heard that No Doubt has a new album, "Spiders From Space"....now, anyone think that this bears a close resemblance to say...Spiders from Mars??? Maybe the Spiders from Space are from Mars???? :-)

With fears of having this page turning political: a "Brit" IS a correct term for Scots. Anything else is part of The Wishful-thinking-department. I'm perfectly aware of that Scots aren't too happy with this, and though we shouldn't rub your noses in it, you're just going to have to show some overbearance with us ill-informed Europeans. As for the pronouncation of David's name - well, Scots tend to say BOW-ie while this English prefer Bou-ie. Americans probably have about twenty other variations.

And aren't Scots Brits, JeanMarie? I thought the term applied not just to English, but also to Scots, Welsh, and (shudder) Northern Irish?

Are you trying to tell us that BOW-IE or Boh-ie mispronounces his own name (because he always say Boh-ie himself)? My goodness. I didn't realise it was an old Scottish name (in which case, shouldn't it be McBowie?). I thought he took the name from a Bowie knife (which I've always heard pronouced Boh-ie too), which took it's name from an American pioneer, Jim Bowie.

Germany - Monday, February 24, 1997 at 07:44:20 (EST)
BOW -ie is an old Scottish surname and it is definately pronunced BOW-ie up here !!!!!! regardless of how David prounces it himself !!! (Dara - I am not a BRIT !!! - I am a SCOT - and we are always right !! )

Falkirk, SCOTLAND - Monday, February 24, 1997 at 05:40:19 (EST)
As Boh-ie pointing out in An Earthling at 50 (the ITV programme), this pronunciation thing is geographical. The correct pronunciation, as others have said is Boh-ie. A lot of 'mericans tend to say Boo-ie (maybe an American will explain why: it beats the Hell out of me as I can't think of a single word in the English language where 'ow' is pronounced 'oo'). And Brits, especially Londoners often say Bow (rhymes with cow) ie.
On the 7 Dwarves thing, Boh-ie didn't say much on MTV except that he wanted, for a laugh, to work in a different dwarf to each line of the verse of LW. He ran into problems because he had 11 lines and only 7 dwarves, so he started making up ones, like 'stinky' (who made it into the final version of the lyrics) and 'crappy' (who didn't). He finished by saying "Don't ask me what it means - I just write 'em".

Starluck, granted you live in Texas and pronounce his name right and all, and Austin is a great little town...but I lived in *gaspcringe* Aggieville (you know, B/CS, the home of the Dixie Chicken *ackackphtt* ...not a fit place for a California girl, I might add) and nobody ever said his name right there. Of course they all had college futbaal on the brain and wanted to kill their arch rivals in UTAustin...no lives I tell ya. Anyway, forgive my tongue-in-cheekedness...I tend to stereotype those I watch from afar. Oh yea, and to correct you: I ran into a coyote wearing a beautiful blue bandana and he was howling at the moon. To tell the truth, I think he had a lovely howling voice.

mlle foo, I've heard the rumor about that Velvet Goldmine thing; Iggy's supposed to be all for it, but Dave himself is a little concerned about how, um, colorful his character has been depicted. I can't think of any actors who could really do justice to the roles, though. Anyway, about the pronunciation of the name. He's been pronouncing it *beau-ee* since at least 74 (says it in Cracked Actor), but I've heard it pronounced *bow-ee* (as in bow down to me) when I was in England. And Earthling's hit #1 at the Tower in SF? Gee, I guess this city does have taste.

Well I'm going to throw in my two bux worth on the pronunciation debate raging over Mr. Bowie's name. The first thing to remember is yes, Bowie says "Boh-ee" when referring to himself. However, if you are a Texan, or a knife afficionado, the name is definitely pronounced "Boo-ee". But hey, what do a bunch of Texans and knife collectors know >:) It irks me to hear people mispronounce David's last name, but if they think they're right, let 'em think that, cuz we all know they're WRONG. Mwahaha. At least they aren't confusing our venerable singer with the short ex-jockey from the Monkees *cringe*. "pleased to meet you, won't you guess my name...?"

I just wanted to know if anyone had ever heard of a song with lyrics, "been there, done that, what's next" or "welcome to the circus" that sound exactly like Bowie-the voice, the lyrics-the band sounds very familiar(Gabrels or Eno, perhaps).It's driving me sane-the lyrics are nowhere to be found on this extensive page or anywhere else that I can find. It's definitely Bowie- I've never been more certain of anything in my life- well, perhaps an alien clone then (nothing's impossible- the voice is oddly wavering throughout).

Questions that have been plagueing me since i started listening to Bowie (years ago): 1) Does David say his last name "Boh-ie" or "Boo-ie"? 'Cause I've heard it pronounced both ways, but I've never actually heard him say his name. 2) Does Ziggy actually make love WITH his ego, or does he use it to make love to the audience??

Thank God and Heaven for people like David. I think that is probably one of the nicest people I have ever heard of. Last year my friend, Daniele, introduced me to his music. Ever since then I have been a huge fan . I am thirteen, go to school full time and I am pursuing a career of singing. Many of my friends say I have a beautiful voice. I agree with them only when they say David does.

Andy: I don't agree that Eno is past his greatness (remember: they've said that about Bowie, too). I don't think he influences artists any more than they let him - though he probably tries to stretch them as far as possible. The James-album "Laid" may seem like a step in the wrong direction, but I still ahve "Zooropa" and, of course, "Outside" freshly in mind. What makes, for me, "Earthling" a lesser album than "Outside" is the lack of such brilliantly arranged and produced tracks like "I'm deranged" and "we prick you".

well, to tell the truth, i have a frock coat. but dammit, it isn't bowie's frock coat! i want it now. *foot stomp* my frock coat costed about $150 to make (including all the silk and stuff and bribing a friend of mine to sew the thing for me cuz i'd just wind up sewing my fingers to my earlobes if i tried to make it), so i imagine having one made that looks just like bowie's neato black one with all the brocade and velvet and ghod-knows what kind of lining (silk is good, oooooooooh) it would cost quite a bit more. that's why i have to raid His closet. i have to sneak in one night (hopefully iman will be out cuz she could probably rip off my eyebrows without even trying), and just take the stuff. who knows...maybe there will be some old ziggy stuff hidden in a dark recess somewhere...or if i go in far enough i'll wind up in narnia (you can never tell about wardrobes). ---mademoiselle foo (she's killing time, off with her head!)

ATMOSFEAR PART 3:Stabbing eyes. They reach for me. Who are you. Waiting for. Children selling tears. Door to door. With no protection. They hide behind trees. In clear cut areas. A cancer extending life, you. A disease easing the pain, you. We're slaves. Content with our chains. Is it too late. To be grateful for you. Strangers when we collide. Before the tide washes me away. After all. We're only inhuman. Eroded by our tears. The pattern of oxygen. Breath. Will you be my living end. Please. Be my living end. Always walking into the same wall. I'll never learn. Flinch. As if something made impact. Painting bruises on flawless skin. For the attention. Sometimes you get so lonely. You told me so. Attracted to shadows. Cast without a source of light. It's killing me. But I'm coming home. Once I find it. But it's so hard to find your way to heaven. When you're six feet closer to hell. A cold hell. A frozen shelter. Silence. Everywhere. I'm only dancing, alone. Visions do their best. To haunt, to taunt. Day after day. Wide awake, but still dreaming. Of you. The quicksand has sent invitations. To embrace. In tears again. One last time. As we sink...

I wonder if he'd just give me that neato black frock coat he wore on SNL...?

I have a wee theory regarding us all sleeping with Bowie - obviously the experience was so overwhelming that the only way our brains could cope with it without driving us insane was to make us forget it ever happened ! I wondered why I was having thses memory lapses at work ! - one minute I'm sitting at my desk doing the quote contest and the next I wake up wondering where the times went to ! Maybe we're all David's sex slaves !!! (wishful thinking !!) I'm away to do the quote contest again right now !!!!!

Hey---RE: today's interview with Bowie in the NY Times---does anyone know what he meant by "I'm thinking of making the trilogy an internet release only from now on"? David Bowie was referring to a collaboration with Brian Eno. He says: "There's also a temptation to ask people to actually add and change what we put on the Net, so the story evolves through people's participation in it."

Well done to the Detective: it's just a pity they're aren't more DJs like you around. I saw Bowie on MTV News this morning: he was talking about how people had reacted with the same horror in the 70's when Zowie was born to the way they're reacting to Michael Jackson's son now. It was cool, cos they played a bit from Little Wonder afterwards. As this will no doubt be repeated on their news programmes throughout the day, it was a nice bit of publicity for David at this important time for Earthling. BOA: I note with some amusement that those dastardly Who fans over at Leo tried a sneak attack last night, but you fended them off.

Those of you who have been sleeping with Bowie and having no recollection...sounds much like Bowie's Lost Weekend Syndrome i.e. he has conveniently forgotten certain portions of the 1970's. Or has he experienced Total Recall yet? I once had a scare, one of those messages suggesting that I had been with the Man, but I quickly went back and checked, and whew! I just listen to his music a lot.

When David announced that his Sound and Vision tour was going to be the last tour in which he was going to sing his older hits, I was really disappointed. So last Saturday when i saw him on SNL, I was THRILLED to hear him play an updated version of "Scary Monsters". I really prefer his older work to the latest. Anyone else think that there was a little too much of Mike Garson's grand piano on the "Outside" album?

David has given an exclusive interview to a Brazilian music magazine. He mentions an acoustic special he was going to do for the BBC in which he was going to sing "Lady Stardust" for the first time in 25 years. He also says he's a big fan of the Internet, where he can get an immediate feedback from the fans about the Birthday concert. If I find the time I can write a translation from Portuguese into English (which of course will NOT recapture his original words) and send it to whoever is interested. By the way, Starluck, that Kraftwerk song you remember is called "It's More Fun To Compute".

If you are suffering from 'having slept with Bowie but have no memory of the event' (see remarks below) you can recoupe your virtual loss by going to the MB and adding your own version of the event to the ongoing 'evil story'. (Look for the post "CHAPTER 7"....and post after the LAST thread in the group). Even Dara has thrown in his 2 cents worth (though he was more on about God, as I recall!). The entire opus is NOT archived yet on the MB but I am keeping it up to date at Hel's Kitchen in unedited format: use Evan's links or go to http://www.ucc.uconn.edu/~heleng to read up through the current plot device! It prints out to about 50 pages now, so at the rate we are going, we'll have a novel before long. Starluck has also contributed some great episodes, as have many other really creative db fans!

Psimon, Paul Simenon is great, The Clash are great. Paul Simon is a fruitcake. I bought Trainspotting on video the other day. I watched with closed captioning, so now I know exactly what they're saying. I listened to Absolute Beginners in my discman when I got up, still half awake, and the song brought tears to my eyes. It must be that romantic side of me. And for Kraftwerk, my favorite song is probably Metal on Metal or Trans Europe Express

Since we're all 'fessing up here, I wish to come clean and state at this point that I too have slept with Bowie (and like the others have no recollection of having done so). In fact, most days I seem to have slept with Bowie (unless a really old pre-67 lyric is thrown at me, or a band intro). This is a considerable shock to me, my wife and my three kids, but it seems there is little I can do to stop it continuing. I suppose I could stop doing the lyric quiz, but that's the highlight of my day, without which my life would be any empty shell not worth living. BTW, Earthling is #39 in the US.

Like Marianne, according to that lyrics contest, I've slept with Bowie. Also like Marianne, I don't recall ever having slept with Bowie. Hmmmm... This presents a series of questions: 1. Why does Teenage Wildlife, and then presumably Evan, seem to think (know?) we've slept with Bowie? 2. Does Evan watch The X-Files? 3. Have Marianne, David and I been abducted by aliens, thereby "losing time" in which events were erased from our minds? 4. Was David one of the abductors, and does he remember sleeping with us? 5. Is Evan an alien, and is Teenage Wildlife a clever means of seducing human Bowie fans? 6. Would I forget sleeping with David even if aliens DID try to erase it from my memory? These questions, and many more, will echo in the annals of this guestbook for eternity (or until they are purged from the page). And these questions should be raised in The Forum, which could use a little added stimulation from what I've witnessed on there today... Damn. I slept with BOWIE, and I don't REMEMBER IT?

Looking For Satellites - Definitely has a touch of Kraftwerk influence in it, specifically the from the Radio-Activity album (1975), the song Radio Stars and Airwaves - Earthling has bits and pieces strewn throughout from previous works of both Bowie and others.

Well, I never did go back to work. Thus far I've been poking around the On the Fly lyrics contest thing. According to your calculations, I've slept with Bowie. If this is true, how come I don't remember it? Sheesh, you'd think a person would remember these things. I guess I'll keep at this till I get some lyrics wrong. I swear, I really do listen to other things besides Mr. Bowie. Honest. ---mademoiselle "I'm blathering for the sake of blathering at work" foo

ATMOSFEAR Part Two: Stars have fallen. There was a light. A guide. Not anymore. You could look into my eyes. But could you get over the loss? Madmen descending from Cane Hill. They want you. To have and to hold. To believe in modern love. handicapped uterus, virgin pregnancies, ambilical drought. Dry ice milkshake. There was a light. Sex in ultraviolet. Sandpaper caress. Panic in utero. Repetition, an easy way out. I'm split. Halfway. More dead than alive. I'm getting it. Comfortable virus. Now. Not to borrow. But to beg. For abuse. Fear of water. Passing bricks to limbless soldiers. Firing line volunteers. Empty I am. For I've always craved the sinner, la di da. Absolute, obsolete. The sun rises tonight. Crucify. Magnify. Angel are you there? I think I'm losing my way... It's not the side effects of the heart break. The love of the money. The kiss never felt. Matured into nothing. Blank, counterfeit. Stars have fallen. To Earth. With a gospel. Disguised as gossip. Peristalsis. In reverse.

I think that the really good part of IAOA is the music at the chorus. DMW is really great because of the mumblings, and Seven Years is also a great one. I don't have anything against LAW, and the Telling Lies is better than the remixes. Sattelites is a bit slow...

I've just been thru a truly frightening weekend from hell since my mom came up and brought my aunt with her to play a bit of the Tacky Tourist game. At any rate, I've just heard that Iggy Pop is scheduled to play a couple of April tour dates over here, but what I can't understand is that he actually picked my home town for one of the dates; Santa Ana won't know what hit it. Hel, you're very welcome for the book; Jeremy Reed has another book called the Red-Haired Android, but I've not been able to track it down and I don't know if it's Bowie-related or not. And Justin, Dennis Collins from Liverpool pops in here from time to time. Now, just for the record I'd like to say that I love Law because it is my guilty pleasure song off of Earthling, but I'd have to say that my fave is Seven Years (too damn sexy for words), with IAOA a very close runner-up.

Everybody seems to be having a hard time which song on Earthling is the best and which isn't. I haven't put the CD on and skipped to a specific song yet. It works too well as a whole. And Canadian boy, Looking For Satellites is excellent. I read the setlist for the birthday bash yesterday and I can't wait to see it. David and Frank Black performing together, my two favorite songwriters of all time. I tried to convince a friend that the first Frank Black album had a strong Bowie influence, he said I was full of shit. Franks old band the Pixies was the greatest band ever! Frank and David doing Scary Monsters together, what a concept!

EMILIO - I know what your talking about regarding the Life On Mars video - I have an old copy on video from years ago and its MUCH clearer but not nearly as bright. When I saw it on the singles video I thought that that is what is was probably MEANT to look like and my original was just so old it had lost the brightness - but I have to say I prefer it that way !

This is a question I ask now and again on the Internet, maybe one day a fellow old-timer will come up with an an answer. Anyway, as I remember it, the "Life on Mars" video was slightly different from the way it appears on "The Video Collection". The image was much sharper (the picture on "The Video Collection" is so blurred that I believe it was taken from a second-generation source) and there was a cut in which David could be seen leaning towards the audience. I think you can see it on the "Fame '90" video, as one of the small screens that make up the "frame". Am I the only one who remembers that? Am I being fooled by my memory?

Adrian Belew on the Stage version of Station To Station 2. Mick Ronsons solo at the end of Moonage Daydream 3. Robert Fripps madness all over Fashion. 4. Adrian Belews solo at the end of Boys Keep Swinging 5. Reeves Gabrels on Baby Universal 6. Earl Slick and Carlos Alomar battling it out on Stay 7. Robert Fripp on Scary Monsters 8. Mick Ronson on Width Of A Circle on Ziggy Stardust The Motion Picture, playing with one hand! 9. Reeves Gabrels going back and forth from speaker to speaker in Hallo Spaceboy 10. That guitar collage at the end of Sweet thing Reprise. Who was the best guitar player to play with Bowie? Email with the answers! My pick would be either Belew of Fripp.

Hallo all, Been seeing Bowie all over the place these days!!! First of all, Little Wonder is number 2 on the Internet Singles Chart, still above U2, good work BOA. Even though LW is proably the weakest track on the album (IMHO), what does that matter? We are blindly sycophant fans who will support anything Bowie does, right? Little Wonder, I for one have the video of TMWFTE, but can't you order it off the internet or something? Speaking of that, my Earthling CD from CD Universe, ordered right here off of Evan's page, took only 3 days to arrive. Yesterday I bought the Philip Glass "Heroes" Symphony and got a free T shirt, which is actually really boring, with no pictures, only some bright green lettering on a black shirt. Finally, the Philly City Paper (which is oh-so-much-hipper than Spin, and whose reviewers are 30-somethings) gave Earthling a favorable review, except they didn't like IAOA, which I think is unbelievable, as it currently my favorite track. Sayanaro.

And I want to register the fact that I think 'Law (Earthlings on Fire)' is a great song, no matter what anyone else says about it! I love the entire album (the second song is probably my least favorite). 'Seven Years in Tibet' and 'Law' are neck and neck for 'favorite' right now. Oh, and Ramona, I laughed very hard when I saw you'd taken my post about Earthling and turned it into SATAN'S DIALOGUE in our 'story'!! 'bout died off laughing over that when I read it last week! Hel

It says the queue time is screwed or something. Starluck, I got your mail too. Could the Starman be a Stargirl in my case. I'm waiting patiently for her too. I see that Little Wonder and Law (Earthlings On Fire) are not liked too well. It's the same for Wishful Beginnings and I am With Name off of Outside. To me Wishful Beginnigs is totally ahead of it's time. And that bass booms through a good set of speakers, it's very frightening. I'm no longer your golden boy, sorry little girl... could that be an apology for not being as great as he was when he was Ziggy Stardust? David will and always has been the best. The last bad song he wrote in my opinion was probably those songs on Labyrinth. And those ones are pretty good!

hallo everyone. i have been listening to 'earthling' to the point of insanity. i love every song on it. yes, i too wonder what eno could have done with these songs, although we did get a hint with his mix of 'i'm afraid of americans' on the 'showgirls' soundtrack. i don't believe eno has lost his touch; i think he has been, is, and always will be a blazing originator and visionary. /and a loser i will be/for i've never been a winner in my life.....

Evan, your page was mentioned in the local newspaper "Zero Hora". They said Earthling will be released in Brazil on the 25th, but the lyrics can already be checked on the Internet at http://www.etete.com/Bowie. Isn't that great?

Peter: I shudder at the thought of what Eno would have done to some of the Earthling songs. Eno was obce great, I feel, but sadly no more. That last James album wasn't just dated: it was retro.

After a few listens I was in doubt, but now I'm sure: "Little wonder" is shite! It's one of two tracks ("Law" being the other) that brings the "Earthling"-album close to being disappointing. That being said, songs like "Seven years in Tibet" and "Dead Man Walking" is alone worth the price of the album, and shows that the Man is still very capable of making truly great tracks. But I still can't help wondering what ENO would have done to some of these songs...

Atmosfear Part Two is almost finished, it should be on here tomorrow. I'm pretty prolific if you haven't already noticed by all the stuff I have on this gusetbook already. Today the weather was great, so I went for a walk with Earthling in my discman. Ah, theres nothing like a good Bowie album through headphones while walking on what seemed like a spring day.

Amosfear Part One: Odd and even eyes, under a sky they say is just a xerox of a dream. There are scars on the handheld mirrors again. Eclipsing beauty. Are the dead rising to accept handshakes from future legends? Bliss is the torture of advice. There is no hope left to go around. I'm afraid of the sounds from underneath. A choir of helplessness. Murmurs of mute children, suffocating in their oxygen tents. Tranquilized by advertisements. Remember, they will always let you down when you need them. Running off with angels. Coming back as strangers. As painful as the snow on Mercury. Melting. A necessary religion, a permanent dream. Blindfolds, mandatory fashion. Driving nails into the skull of the headless horseman. As decoration. Now I want you. The offer of lips to the poisonous kiss. Dizzy. Dancing with the headrush. The noose, a necklace. To here knows when...

SPACEBOY, I did get your email. I also like Law (Earthlings on Fire). It took about 10 listens before I really started to enjoy it though. YAY! There were two articles on Bowie in the newspaper this morning. It's almost a miracle because I wonder if they've even heard of Bowie out here. There was a review of Earthling, which they gave 3 1/2 stars out of five to. Then there was an average sized article about the Wall Street bond, which I knew all about already. Oh well. I was hoping that they'd have some neat pics of him......

Spin is what you might call painfully hip. Their over-40 writers are desperate to like anything with street-level credibility, whilst secretly they listen to John Tesh. A "dinosaur" rock star like Bowie can never get his due, no matter how great his latest products are from critics like this (or in the Village Voice, for example): he's too old, white and male.

yesterday sucked. but i'm okay now. alys i sent you e-mail today did you get it? there may be something wrong with my sending mail. can anyone tell me how the hell i cn get on the chat. i keep trying, but it doesn't seem to work. i realized just now how great David sounds when he says I'm Getting It in Little Wonder. Wow! Lucky for me I didn't have nightmares of naked midgets figure skating last night. did anyone see Live on Saturday Night Live last night. They've turned into Sepultura! But who cares Right? shampoo boys own... Huh? Just what is David "getting" in Little Wonder, I wonder. My story/poem thing is almost complete, it will submitted to Fan contributions very soon. i promise it will be an oddity. Am I the only person that really likes Law (earthlings on fire). it seems that the song is getting put down in a lot of reviews. That line "oh i get a little bit afraid sometimes" thats a killer. the lyric contests are really easy today. did angela bowie really have an english accent or she just faking it in Ziggy Stardust: the motion picture. Speaking of that movie, we should get to George Lucas so he can THX it. Ziggy Starust: The Motion Picture: The Special Edition. What a title that would be. OOOH David in all those lovely costumes on the big screen. An old girlfriend of mine really liked David. She said she used to watch Labyrinth just to see that bulge in his pants. (the lance of love as angela calls it) It's too bad we broke up before I got The man who fell to earth, where she could have actually seen it, in the greastest sex scene ever involving a revolver. the old woman said... bye bye love.

Well, after actually reading the whole page, and I really did, I saw some interesting things. Many people believe David Bowie to be a deity or actually god himself. Others just wanted to relive past concerts or gripe about someone else griping about someone else who did the actual griping in the first place. It's my firm opinion that while David Bowie is not actually god, I have watched thru the years as he changed and evolved as an artist. And I have nothing but the greatest repect for him. He has performed and presented his art no matter what others thought. Damn the consequenses. He is a truly amazing talented, brilliant performer and artist and human being. I applaud him for everything he's accomplished in his lifetime. And I hope he still keeps on doing it. And what was all that nonsence about NIN and Bowie anyway? Ya lost me on that one..... Keep on keepin' on....

I read Alys and Starlucks story. Very good indeed! I intend to submit a poem or something in the next few days. I see the lyrics to the songs to Earthling were fixed up. Can anyone fix up the lyrics to the songs on Buddha of Suburbia? I was wondering if anybody has a crush on Angela Bowie, or has Iman eclipsed her?

Just heard Earthling songs on the radio, on a special. In the interview, when asked about failures, db said that indifferent is almost as bad as crap, and he had this period at '84-'85. And they also had the LW single, with some very nice remixes. I wanna get it, and I wanna get it now!

Now I remember what I was going to say!........I had the voice of Roddy Macdowell (did I spell that right?) in my head when I was sitting in English IV class reading William Wadsworth's "Londond, 1802".....Good grace, this guy is good!......And then it dawned on me......(Don't ask me how.)....Have any of you ever read THE POSITRONIC MAN by Isaac Asimov?.....Well, if they ever made that into a movie, I think David Bowie would make the PERFECT man for the part of Andrew the Positronic Man.......Strange things in the world of space-poet Starluck, eh?....~Starluck™

With all due respect ... I have been a Bowie fanatic for 25 years now and I purchased the Earthling album on Tuesday (2/11). After listening to it (and by the way it is a nice album) it seems to me that a lot of the songs are very reminiscent of songs from previous albums, I haven't pinpointed them though, but there is a definite repetitive movement afoot. Has Bowie reached the point in his physical 'Earth' life that he has begun to resort back to his infancy years. People say as you get older you start resorting back to your childhood. In Bowie's case, his childhood would be Images, Space Oddity, etc. onwards. As Dennis Miller would say, "this is just my opinion, I could be wrong"

If you want a copy of any of the videos, I'd need a tape.......but otherwise it's cool ;-) And all the pics i have are on the 'puter so it's kinda pointless. I could draw you one, tho.....maybe........ speaking of drawing, i'm gonna rent Labyrinth tomorrow prob'ly, and hopefully tape it, so I can use it to draw Jareth from for Alys' story (ahh, the blessings of the "pause" button...).... Oh well, ta all, I'm gonna go try to get into personals...( Oh, and hope everyone had a happy Valentine's Day, even tho i didn't, it's depressing and the weather's miserable it sucks and the color pink is REVOLTING) closing on that note....;-)

Ryan: I'm really looking forward to hearing what Moby does with DMW too. I think the problem with the LW remixes is that they were all done by people with a grounding in dance music, but no understanding or background in rock. Earthling is a sort of mad rock/dance fusion, and the LW remixers just seemed to strip out all the rock parts (esp. Reeves guitar). Moby proved last year that he has almost as good an understanding of rock as he has of underground dance musics, so he's probably the one guy who understands the two genres almost as well as Bowie himself. And Rancell: many thanks for your kind comments, which made the time I spent typing up my report seem all the more worthwhile.

Little blurb in the "Short Stuff" section of my morning newspaper: "DAVID BOWIE entered posterity Wednesday when he unveiled his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. 'If I make any more bad albums, come over here and walk all over me all right? Thank you very much indeed,' the 50-year-old pop star said." -- It has a nice little black-and white photo of David looking very happy indeed ;-) BOWIEMANIAC-- How do you get into Aristosoft? You seem to always be there, but i dunno how to get there too. And on Leno, David wore brown pants (nicely showing off his hips, like the black SNL ones did ;-) , a kinda beigeish-fawn-pale-mocha satiny shirt w/ ruffle-y collar, and brown frockish coat. And freaked out Leno quite well. heehee. I liked it when Leno asked David to sign his copy of Earthling...;-) And Bowiemaniac, IF i can tape the concert (IF i can get enough money!) I'd be happy to make a copy for you, though it might not be that wonderful a copy, since it would be a tape of a tape 'cause i can't afford to get ppv twice... A Proposal: Is anyone willing to tape the soundtrack to Labyrinth for me? Not one CD store in Wake County seems to carry it! I haven't got much Bowie stuff (next to none) but i'd be happy to trade a copy of something i do have...<:-}...... ANYways, Ta all, happy post-post-Earthling Day (Maybe we should call the days the next planets out from the sun...so yesterday would have been Marsian day, and today would be, uh, Jupiterian day?...)

So THAT's what a Zonker is! Oh, okay! Ryan, you're so right. Email me. I love Ear th l ing, especially Looking For Satellites, Seven Years in Tibet, and Dead Man Walking. Other than the Lennon-sounding vocals, I hear a little of Buddha of Suburbia in it (good album, very good). What does everyone else think? I should have added yesterday that I missed Leno because I was terribly sick, not because hearing Little Wonder again would kill me. Just wanted to clear that up.

And, BTW, we should all thank him for the write-up on that other message board about the German TV show. I found that very interesting. I would have said so there, but the message sender thingee spazzed out when I tried.

Just saw David on the news here in Australia receive his star on the Hollywood walk of fame. Congratulations David - Number 2038 - way to go. Of course David looked great and hundreds of fans turned up to celebrate with David. Was anyone from the guest-book present. A great moment in Bowie history. Iman was present and looked fantastic. You have to admit that these two look great together and David looks oh so happy with his life at the moment. I expect someone to go to this new Bowie religious site and photograph the above mentioned star.

Well since I can't get on the chat for some reason and I feel about talking about Bowie, I figure I'll have to do it here. My Ten Favorite Bowie Songs. 1. Sweet Thing/Candidate/Sweet Thing Reprise 2. Station To Station (Live From 'Stage' 3. The Man Who Sold The World 4. Jump They Say 5. Moonage Daydream 6. The Bewlay Brothers 7. African Night Flight 8. The Motel 9. Subterraneans 10. Absolute Beginners My Ten Favorite Bowie Albums 1. Diamond Dogs 2. Station To Station 3. Lodger 4. Outside 5. Low 6. Scary Monsters 7. Heroes 8. Ziggy Stardust 9. The Man Who Sold The world 10. Aladdin Sane Earthling will make these lists very soon. It wouldn't be fair to his other material to rank Earthling and it's songs with them quite yet. But I could see Seven years In Tibet, Telling Lies, Battle For Britain, and Law sneaking up on my classic faves. I watched The Man Who Fell To Earth twice last night and God I love Davids hair in that movie. In my opinion it's his best hairdo. Oh! And I love Candy Clarke too. Someday I hope to meet someone who loves everything about David as much as me. I could talk about him and listen to him for the rest of my life.

So he's re-signed for EMI? I don't understand why people are getting upset. What difference does it matter who he's signed to. One company is as good or bad as the next. I remember all the hype when he signed to Virgin. "We are the label for the truly alternative". "We exist to push artists that other companies wouldn't". Yeah, right. That's why they're pushing the hell out of the Spice Girls and leaving Earthling to die from neglect. And it is strangely satisfying that the company that told Bowie he could piss off with Tin Machine II cos they weren't going to release it have now had to fork out $30 million to get him back.

'earthling' is earthshaking! it is, in my opinion, his best album since 'scary monsters' (not that i didn't enjoy all of them though). this speculation about reznor ripping off Bowie is completely true, although if you going to rip off someone, i can't think of any better person. littlewonderlittlewonderyoulittlewonderyousendingmesofaraway

Good morning to all. *sigh* So last nite i found out that I am not going to be seeing the B-Day Concert on PPV. I told my mum and dad that it was $19.95, and my dad said no right away...just like I expected him to...he said something like, "I'm not paying $20 just for a dumb concert," and i was crushed there, cuz it's not just a "dumb concert". so I went and asked my mum, and she said she'd think about it (translation---probably not.) so now I probably won't be seeing it. I can't get Earthling. and I am so depressed it's unbelieveable. I cried myself to sleep last nite. I have absolutely no clue as to how I am going to be able to get, like, $33 so I can get Earthling and see the Concert. *SIGH* I better think of something...ahhh, I might be on later today, but I'm not sure, cuz my dad's waiting for some phone call. but I'll be on the Java chat tomorrow...JENN I really really must talk to you...luv to all...ROCK'N'ROLL SUICIDE.

David rocks! I just got his Earthling cd yesterday. I'm not sure what I think of it yet- it is rather strange but does have some very interesting material in it. My favorite songs on there are Little Wonder, Looking for Satelites and Seven Years in Tibet. I agree that there is definately a John Lennon influence in this album. The song I'm Afraid of Americans definately reminded me of John Lennon, particularly the cynical and protest songs that John did in his solo years. Also, when David kept singing "so far away" in Little Wonder it sounded just like John. John was another genius in music. I am almost 19 and I have been listening to David for about 4 years. He never ceases to amaze me. Some of his best albums, I think, are Ziggy Stardust, Diamond Dogs, the Man who sold the World, Alladin Sane, Young Americans, Station to Station, Low, Labyrinth, The Buddah of Surburbia and Outside. He has such a great amount of styles and each song is interesting in its own way. He's written some beautiful songs like Space Oddity, Quicksand, the Man who Sold the World, Rock and Roll Sucide, Some Are, Fantastic Voyage, Ian Fish, UK Heir, As the world falls down, and The Motel, just to mention a few. He also is beautiful and very good looking. He looks young for his age. I saw his apartment when I stayed in London in March. I looked out the window of the place I was staying and I could spot his apartment. What a great place to live!I have never seen David but I really hope to in the future. I am one of his t evoted fans. That guy is so damn awesome! He should be remembered for his great contributions to rock and roll for many years to come.

Ryan, I appreciate your comment. I must say, though, that Trent DOES admit openly that David was the biggest influence on his music. And I do catch my share of "David Bowie!!!????" and weird looks from my friends, but then I made a few listen to Eartling tonight at rehearsal and I think one person is gonna buy it. She was amazed, but she insisted she didn't know his stuff. So, I mentioned Changes and Space Oddity and she responded "that was David Bowie?! I never made the connection before." One down, and a few more to come! love, lizards, and lobotomies.

Land of happiness with EARTHLING!!!, USA - Wednesday, February 12, 1997 at 20:55:20 (EST)
Yes, he kicked ass on Saturday Night Live. And last night on Jay Leno. And since I got Earthling this afternoon, he's been kicking ass again. The whole album is an act of godliness. Like all his other albums. I'm 19 years old and a lot of my friends bug me about my passion for Davids music. But I just ignore them and blast him on my stereo anyways. All this bullshit about this being his comeback album should be ignored. Black Tie White Noise, most of Buddha Of Suburbia, Outside, and his recent tour are all indicators that his man is still the best. And lets not forget the Tin Machine albums, where he rocked us so hard, he scared the sceptical assholes all away. We are under the god here. Under David. I praise to him. Nothing ever goes away. Hopefully Teenage Wildlife will get the complete, correct lyrics to Looking For Satellites and Battle For Britain. Earthling is amazing. From beginning to end. All the reviewers have been telling lies. Rolling Stone compared this album to Nine Inch Nails. It's too bad Trent Reznor can't write songs half as good as these. And he owes Bowie more than he'll admit. Just listen to Davids Crystal Japan and then listen to NIN's A Warm Place, and just try to prove me wrong. Bowie is a musical deity, and Reeves is wears a similar pair of wings. Us Bowielovers will be well occupied until the release of Contamination.I have to go now, I have to go listen to Earthling again. Enjoy!

HAPPY DAY AFTER BOWIE DAY!!! I tried to get on last night to post after the Leno appearance, but the server was down. What a day! I got Earthling and traded an old CD in for Tonight (haven't listened to that one yet)... and the tapes Alys sent me came... and he was on the Tonight Show... lots and lots of Bowie! EARTHLING ROCKS!!! IT'S DOWNRIGHT INGENIOUS! It's got a very interesting mix of new, exciting sounds. Bowie on Leno was hilarious! Were any of you at the taping (lots of screamers for David)? I love how he plays with people's minds! I kinda feel sorry for Jamie Foxx having to sit next to David through their chat. (David made him look like a fool!) If any of you didn't know, David IS getting his star on the Walk of Fame today and I imagine he'll be there in person. Maybe that's why he cancelled the PI appearance this evening. New jacket? I like it ;) Did anyone else notice that he flubbed one of the "so far away" lines? (Watch it again, you'll see) I think he should have done IAOA. It would have been an even funnier (in that ironic kinda way) appearance! Hmmm... with all these performances of LW, maybe I'll make a "the many facets of LW" tape. I wore my fringy shirt and frock coat today in honor of the GREAT BOWIE DAY yesterday. love, lizards, and lots of Bowie.

The VIVA 2 night was really good. The first hour they showed only videos of David, good choice of clips. The second hour had a little interview, where David talked about Earthling. The 3rd hour I liked best. It was called Matter of taste, a show were stars present their favourite videos. At the beginning, David said, we´re having here a matter of taste and then talked about his t-shirt and clothes in general. "Space Oddity" from the LYTT video was shown. Then he reminisced, how Marc Bolan taught him to get a gorgeous new wardrobe by ransacking the dustbins of King´s Street`s clothes shops. "T.Rex - Get it on". After that he told, how he first met Eno. "Roxy Music - Virginia Plain". Then he told the story about Velvet Underground and how he talked with Lou Reed's replacement, believing, he was Lou. "Dirty Boulevard - Lou Reed". The next video was "Robot" from Kraftwerk, about whom he also said a little. After that, he talked about Iggy and the Sales Brothers, followed by "Lust for Life - Iggy". Then he introduced "Firestarter - Prodigy" by saying they had a lot of fun on the festivals last year and that he loved their music. Thereupon he told about an article he once wrote for "Q" about Tricky, followed by "Tricky's Overcome". (Quite nice,IMO). As the last video from other artists, he showed "NIN- Closer" about whom he was full of praise and hoped, they soon recorded together. As the very last video, he presented the one, he loved most in the world right now: "Little Wonder". As farewell, he then sang:"Goodbye, goodbye, we'll meet again, somewhere, sometime, tatata..." What a crazy guy! the last of the 4 hour special had a few of his videos and a few comments on his life from the host. That was it. A good show, compared with previous specials on European TV.

OK, this is what a Zonker! is. A Screaming Yellow Zonker! is a yummy caramel popcorn treat, usually with peanuts. David was under the influence of these addictive little things at the time that he was recording Let's Trance. Dave became so enamored of them that he styled his Serious Moonlight 'do after them (same color, same general shape, and same level of *sticky-lookingness*). Not wanting to become too dependent on them, David tried to wean himself away from the Zonkers! The results were Tonight and Never Let Me Down. Reeves Gabrels hooked David up with *organic* nonaddictive Zonkers! circa TM, resulting in a general improvement in the quality of David's output. Bowie swears by them now.

I missed Leno last night, opting to go to bed rather than to hear Little Wonder again. Nice song, but...It's great to hear Bowie was confusing the masses. He really is smarter than us all.

I didn't see the Leno show, but David was referring to his visit (with Eno) to an asylum in Austria where they specialize in 'outsider art', art work done by nutcases! Hallo, all. I've been fiddling with my site at Hel's Kitchen (see Evan's links) and have added a link thru to Rob Hall's wonderful new Bowie site, where he has provided many pictures from both the SNL performance and the Leno show. There are movie clips and a transcript of the Leno interview. It is WELL worth a visit!! Also, I sneaked a peek at the Message Board/Virgin site. YOWZA, is that thing tricky to load now: lots of bugs in THAT code! Brian archived the 'story' but it won't load well, and does not appear complete! Until he gets that site debugged and the archive completely loaded and bug-free, I'm retaining the entire story on my site. I HOPE to be able to delete it one of these days (need the disk space!!) I love my copy of EARTHLING on CD: I'd about worn out that tape, and the CD sounds far more 'clear'!! Hel

For those that saw the Tonight Show last night--I could have done without another performance of Little Wonder. The best part about the show was the fact that David was up to his ego-inflating/confuse the American guys trip he is famous for! He talked about some obscure Museum filled with strange creatures and his visit to a asylum? filled with mad artists. Anyway Leno and the In Living Color comedian whose name I forget were like "Who is this guy?" Bowie was laughing and his face was full of glee--He likes to play the mad trickster full of obscure wisdom. It's his job to confuse and confound... Anyway Leno thought Bowie was making the whole thing up and could not wait to get him off the talkie segment and onto the stage to strut his stuff--Little monster of our time--Indeed!

Ok--I got Earthling Tuesday morning at Tower Records in Boston. Album version of Little Wonder is high speed chase through the Land of gnomes! Looking for Satellites evens the pace of Battle for Britain and Seven Years in Tibet which sound like a cross between John Lennon and John Lennon--speaking of dead man walking thru Bowies post Beatles mind--using the vocabulary of a forgotten generation--hey anything is up for recycling these days... Any way both songs are great! Dead Man Walking reminds me of the best of Late Seventies Dance Music and that's not meant to be sarcastic folks! Telling Lies reminds me of We prick You--relentless, driven, omenous! I'm afraid of Americans--Iggy Pop meets King Crimson at a Laurie Anderson concert--Would have easily fit on Lodger! The Last thing you should do--very Yellow Magic Orchestra meets PIL. Earthlings on Fire--Chaos Magick at its best! Bowie has done it again purloined pieces of our collective junk culture psyche into a pastiche of forgotten sounds and memories from the late 70's and the money-grubbing new age eighties. He's not ahead of the game but he's a great archeologist--digging up the remains of past hallucinations and marrying them off the the late 90's techno/ambient landscape of Jungle. I can not wait till Contamination contaminates us all!

OHHHHHHHH be QUIET all you luckies who have Earthling! Have pity for me who can't get it till March 2nd (hopefully. my birthday then) But I guess it's nice to hear it's GOOD at least and worth a birthday present ;-) But then all David's stuff is fabulous. Oh well, I'll get it sooner or later (preferably sooner, but AT ALL is better than none!

So the Screaming Yellow Zonkers! still do exist! I didn't just dream them up! It's just that I can't find them in ye olde towne market anymore, and I'm too embarrassed to to ask one of the stock boys for them. They've probably split to the East Coast, anyway. But just try and tell me that the color and shape (and general *sticky-lookingness*) of a Zonker! does not bear a remarkable resemblance to Dave's 'do during the Let's Trance days.

I am 19, co coordinator of the reading series, an accomplished writer & artist who wishes to eventually one day work with this demigod of a man on a joint project. If anyone could help me, I'd be more than happy! Thanks!

Bowie is NOT cheap! He's just very good at pinching his pennies (among other things). Certain PR people just never learned the value of living on a reasonable budget. Good Zonkers! are hard to find these days, but I too have my little stockpile of ammunition consisting of Earthling CDs; I will be ready and fully armed when the Earthling tour makes its way to the WARFIELD (remember that name, Mitch; the Shoreline gets too cold).

The past couple of weeks have seen two records achieved on the singles chart. Last week, aside from the debut chart, we had our first single debut in the top ten. David Bowie's "Little Wonder" pulled this off by debuting at number 8 last week. It moves up to 4 this week, and is most likely to break the logjam of the top three, which has remained static for the past few weeks. "Little Wonder" peaked at 14 in the United Kingdom last week.

It's from this Internet chart. I'm proud of the man. But I can't vote for Earthling, altough it's at 38... It's not on the vote list, and I'm afraid that if I add it, it will consider it as a different album...

So are we all doing are Duty Now for Bowie's Future? In a fit of raging consumerism, I bought up the 50 copies of Earthling at the local Tower, to ensure that certain members of Bowie's PR staff would be able to finance next month's payment on his Jaguar. Then I started thinking, hmmm, I hear Bowie is cheap, I bet the poor PR chap has a hefty dental plan payment, so I went to another Tower and bought 23 more copies. I figured I needed something to throw at Bowie's one good eye during the next tour, since I haven't seen a box of Zonkers! since the reign of Mary Lou Retton. Ramona, I thought your therapist has a special spanking technique that purged you of the urge to crush Snow Blind White?

They played Changes and Suffragette City, just like I requested :) Absolutely NO ONE...well, allright, ONE person, besides me...knew Suff. City. SO, I was out there on the gym floor, acting like Ziggy. ALONE. I danced like Ziggy, when he sang Suff. City...and I TRIED to get everyone to do the "Whan Bam Thank Yu, Ma'am" thing..i TRIED...but I was the only one. *sigh* and then, when they played Changes, most of the eighth graders knew it, and a whole lot of the seventh graders...so we all got together, singing and dancing! It was such fun, to see that they actuall KNEW ONE BOWIE SONG!! A few even told me that Changes ruled!!! :D Sssooo..I'm going off to Aristosoft Personals A...STARLUCK---> please come to chat!!!!! and U too SARA!!! luv and VaNiLLa!!!

I know, Ramsey, I SURELY thought I'd catch a sight of that magnificent mane of yours and Patti is hard to miss in a crowd, with her height and red hair!! I think the camera was angled to shoot OVER the first few rows of the moshers and more into the center of the pit. We only caught a brief glimpse of Evan's brother, during the 'eyeballs' scene. I did see the big blue one pop and go down, and remembering Evan's review, I figured you and Evan were right BENEATH that one, but could not pick out any individual people. The picture quality is good, in general, except for this distracting 'black line' down the middle of many of the distance shots. Jess and I decided the camera was up in a glass booth under the eves and that the 'line' was the joining of two panes of glass. And the camera taking crowd pictures from behind the stage somewhere was mostly catching Gilly's side of the pit, so it must have been on the side Jess, Antoine and I were on. I also only got a really BRIEF glimpse of what MIGHT have been Steve Kelly's head and he was right up against the stage on the right, as seen from the audience. On another subject, I'm so excited to be getting EARTHLING on CD today!!! Hel

What is all of this ongoing nonsense about David "looking loaded" on SNL. If you taped it, replay the tape, sit close to the TV, look into those eyes, watch that smile at the end of LW / the smile again after Scary Monsters. This mans is totally clean, totally enjoying himself, and "high" only on the fact that he did well and the audience adored his performance. Watch that man, you'll see what I mean!

Hallo all, Is everyone voting for LW on the internet charts (link on my last post below)? Well, it's release day, but since I was good little girl and ordered the Earthling CD from Evan's site, I will have to wait for it to come in the mail. Well, I've had a tape of it for a month, so I guess that's OK. Regarding Bowie being drunk on SNL, I haven't actaully watched my tape yet, but on the Radio One interview that was played on many stations around the country on Sunday, he was asked about his drinking habits. Bowie replied that he quit drinking years ago and never touches alcohol these days. If we can believe him :-). In addition, the clerk in a local bookstore last night saw me carrying around the Tower records magazine featuring Bowie on the cover (prominently smoking) and informed me that dear David had quit smoking, that he was on a big health kick. How's that for a rumor! Now I KNOW I saw him light up a couple at the Birthday Bash, but we can hope...

Maybe I'd start with illustrations (good idea) and maybe move on if we felt like it. But i really do feel you could get somethin' out of it ( a movie script, at least, w/ you-know-who starring as the King himself ;-) Anyways, if you're cool wit' dat, email me, etc etc...

Congratulations, Bowie Online Army!!!

This lifted from the Internet Singles Chart for the top 100 singles, week of February 10:
The past couple of weeks have seen two records achieved on the singles chart. Last week, aside from the debut chart, we had our first single debut in the top ten. David Bowie's "Little Wonder" pulled this off by debuting at number 8 last week. It moves up to 4 this week, and is most likely to break the logjam of the top three, which has remained static for the past few weeks. "Little Wonder" peaked at 14 in the United Kingdom last week.
Pretty good for a single that's not even released in the USA yet!

the snl performance was absolute perfection. i also was fortunate enough to hear the radio 1 special on David, and i loved the unreleased acoustic tracks, especially the new version of 'lady stardust', one of my favorite Bowie songs ever. i also really enjoyed the new tracks from 'earthling', and i can't wait to buy it. the story David recalled about meeting lou reed at a VU concert was very amusing too. in case you didn't hear it before, here it is: David had just arrived in America in the early 70's, being the huge VU fan he was, he immediately went to see them at their nearest show. he loved the concert, in which they performed all his favorites (heroin, i'm waiting for the man, white light/ white heat, etc.). afterwards, he was able to get backstage. lou reed came to the door and David talked to him for nearly an hour. he was amazed by what a friendly and sociable guy lou really was. later, he told an american friend and was given the truth.

KISS KISS DAVID :-P


.
., . - Monday, February 10, 1997 at 08:36:10 (EST)
Having been around David while he was drunk, I can tell you that he becomes very (how shall we say) friendly!! Tends to kiss and hug everyone around him. If he was drunk on his SNL appearance then it would explain why he kissed Neve Campbell (whoever that is?)
Can't tell, I promised David.
That would give me away!!, But it is one of David's favourite countries, by his own admission. - Monday, February 10, 1997 at 08:30:46 (EST)
ALYS: I'm sure David wouldn't go on line drunk. He was probably just tired from spending too much time on the net - on the other hand, would you do that if you were married to Nefertiti? Which reminds me, if you were having a private birthday party would you want ANY of the people on that list there? Lord, I'd invite US first! Hmmmm. Bedtime. Maybe a little bacon sandwich before bed - that ought to help me SLEEP.

Just a quick comment for all you Bowie historians that it was 25 years ago today (10 February 1972) that Ziggy first played guitar at a humble pub called the Toby Jug (near a motorway bypass) at Tolworth UK on his very first Ziggy tour. He wore a man's dress :-) to a bunch of working class drinkers who apparently weren't all that impressed. With him were the unnamed Spiders From Mars who took on that name following the release of the Ziggy album. He himself was just listed as David Bowie and was second string to a group called Stray. However, all that as we know soon changed and Ziggy took over the rock world.

Starluck, I wouldn't worry about the story...Evan will get it up eventually. RobotMonster, Angie's site isn't around anymore?? what a pity....LOL....

BowieManiac, I have no clue if DB got drunk at his private birthday party....but a drunken Bowie would be a weird thing indeed.

I hate Neve Campbell. >:-P I am so jealous. I bet she hasn't listened to a full Bowie album in her life. >sigh< But David looked wonderful, as always in black brocade frock coat and shirt (the lacy, lacy shirt!).....I loved the pants too. Emphasized his hips ;-) And I like everyone's hair, all growing in like that. (those who were bald are bald no longer) And Gail Ann was beautiful, as ever (it's not fair! but I can't hate Gail Ann like i do Neve). Oh well. I wish the PI and Miller appearances hadn't been cancelled....But they CAN'T cancel Leno now...I'm just gonna have to stay up and tape it, like i did with SNL. God, how that show's deteriorated. Besides David, the only redeeming factor was David Spade. Oh well. Anyways........ if anyone's tried to send me mail in the past week, I haven't got it, and wouldn't be able to write you back anyways........This goddamn server and mailbox are screwing up so much i'm surprised it even let me on right now...... arrrrrrggggghhhhh....... Looking forward to finally getting Earthling in the States :-) ....... It's gonna be mine for my birthday, all MINE....heeheehee..............

I have just been to see aperformance by one of Davids old teachers; a certain Lyndsey Kemp no less. He is currently touring the UK with 'Variete' which is a very very theatrical piece in a loosely operatic form,with Lyndsey providing his 'operatic mime'. The show was very well produced but was not as elaborate as previous Kemp productions. If anyone else manages to see the show, listen out for the piano playing. If you close your eyes it could easily be Mr Garson!

I was wondering if anyone here went to S.N.L. too? Anyone get to meet him? (i suppose knowing that he left early through some secret passsageway known only to the folks at nbc would make me happy...make me feel like i couldn't have done more...I'd go crazy if i knew he went to the cast party and i didn't even try to get in...) i'm sorry for such rambling in the guestbook...it's just that i just came home from being so close to him and it's hard not to ..... :)

Did I miis something? What is all this talk about an Australian tour? I have seen Evan's addition to the tour page, but where did this information come from? Has an official annoucement been made by Bowie's management or a promoter in Australia? So many questions, I know, but I don't won't to get my hopes up again just to be disappointed again. Evan (or anyone), has this information been verified or is it just another rumor.?

FINALLY!!! i found a place to tell my story!!!! i met DAVID BOWIE on thursday on the set of SNL! (my sister works for NBC)! I have been a fan since i was in the 7th grade (i'll be 30 this year)! i brought my ZIGGY STARDUST album all the way to NYC! just to show him how long i've been a fan! after seeing him play little wonder twice and then scary monsters i stood by the door where he had to leave! I was standing there with my album and i walked towards him and asked him to sign it! he said "sure" i said to him, " i've been a fan since i was in the 7th grade, and i just want you to know that this is the highlight of my life", he said" well u must lead a boring life if i'm the highlight" i said " YEAH, wait?, what did you just say to me?" (everyone was alughing around us) he " sorry BABY (he called me baby) but i had to say it, i said that you must have a dull life if i'm the highlight", i said "no, no, no, i have a great life with you in it (DA! CAN'T BELIEVE I SAID THAT!) i have all your 8 tracks then i bought all your albums and cassettes and now i have all your CDS!" are you ready for this? he hugged me! as he was hugging me i said" a hug, a hug, oh my god you are huging me!" needless to say i felt like i was going to pass out right there! he was so kind and sweet the hole time he had the biggest smile and was like "thank you!" to me!!!! it was so awsome!! it was more then i could have ever hoped for! so many "STARS" are so into them selves and won't give you the time of day but he stoped talked signed and even HUGGED! THANKS DAVID BOWIE!!!

Bowie to tour downunder,eh? Hmm, that'll probably be ok - maybe I'll go to one of the shows if I've nothing on that evening. (Whew! That sounds a bit racey!) The Little Wonder vid was broadcast last night at 2am on RAGE ABC/2JJJ for the first time - and since I wasn't planning on sleeping at all anyway, I decided to watch it. I did laugh! Dave's right up there with Joanna Lumley in the genius of physical comedy stakes in my opinion. And I particularly enjoyed the bit with the alien baby's head. Hey MoonCrater! Something tells me you're smiling. Oh, and as for that MagieNoire Torrent thing, relax, it's just a little psychogenic joke ;-).

It's pretty interesting. What do you think??? If Even made it the question of the week it would be interesting to see what people's opinions are.

If you look with attention at the earthling front cover & more precisely at the shadows,you will see that bowie's shadow goes on his front/right(or north-east)so that means the sun is on his back/left(south-west) something like end of the afternoon. Now look at the trees in front of him , you will see that their shadows are just under the trees , so that means the sun is about just above them , so this means midday in springtime/summer!!! I know that the picture has been made by computer, his picture has been taken in NYC and sticked on an english country view but the guy who's done it could have been a bit more careful!!! what do you think?

BOWIE FANS SOLIDIFY "LITTLE WONDER" AT NUMBER ONE SPOT ON LEO MUSIC ARCHIVES!! Even though this is the "wierdest" poll on the net, Bowie fans, today, earned some bragging rights by knocking those pesky time warped WHO fans into the #2 spot. Bowie fans have cast 1206 votes today versus the 283 WHO votes giving us a solid 742 vote lead as of now. It appears to be mainly German WHO fans who have kept this dinosaur of a song (Won't Get Fooled Again) in # 1 for the last few weeks. Don't get me wrong, I am not condemning the song...just the fact that it is 27 years old and that the WHO have recorded nothing new in the last decade (or two) makes me wonder what the heck they are all about. There are TONS of WHO sites on the web and they have a fairly effective fan/army themselves. BUT, BOWIE FANS RULE...WHO FANS DROOL!

Starluck, I got your artwork and picture!! GREAT art, and you're a gorgeous girl!! PLEASE submit the story to Evan's fiction page!! And 'Bowieghostwriter' would perhaps get a better reception if the story had been sent there. It's not an issue for me because this site loads fast when I access it, but I have friends the other side of the planet who get REALLY frustrated when it takes a half hour to load the Guestbook, and they tend to get miffed when they go thru all that and then see lots of fiction, or chat, or....ANYWAY, Alys and Starluck and the 'ghostwriter': don't let people discourage you!!

Well, the jerk in homeroom with the RS mag actually let me read it this morning! I was wrong... it was the Feb. 20 issue and only the review of Earthling. I was very upset at their saying David was the one influenced on the '95 tour with NIN, when really David inspired Trent through his entire life. They give it a positive review and say it's the best since Scary Monsters, but they still point out how he borrowed a baseline from this group and a feeling from that group, etc. It should grab some attention, but I don't approve of their inferences of non-unique ideas. love, lizards, and let's rack up those votes!!!

Let's see a few more Bowie fans go over to the site, push our votes way up so that these WHO fans (lost forever in the 60's & 70's) cannot retake the lead. GO THERE NOW AND VOTE (vote often)!!!

Sorry if this is old news for you, but I have just read in "ICE" magazine that Philip Glass will continue his symphonic adaptations of the "Eno trilogy". The "Heroes Symphony" was scheduled to be released on February 4, with "Heroes", "Sense of Doubt", "Sons of The Silent Age", "Neukoln", "V-2 Schneider" and "Abdulmajid". And there will be a "Lodger" symphony some time in the future.

Good Mornin', All!!! Long time no see!

Just caught Bowie on NBC's morning show! They showed some satisfyingly long clips of the Little Wonder video! The interview wasn't too much of an interview, but it was a nice plug for the new album! David had a lot to say about how he never expected to have so much enthusiasm for his career at age 50. He also said that his relationship with Iman was so good because he was "in the right place" when they got together. He also spoke about how this was the first album in 23 years that he'd produced solo. He said they'd finished recording in 2 1/2 weeks, and as a result, you can really feel the aggression. He's very happy with it.

What a great way to start of the morning!

By the way, he looked well, but not as gorgeous as he looked at the birthday concert

There is an article on Bowie in the March issue of Rolling Stone. One of the guys in homeroom had it, but he wouldn't let me read it, cause he said: "David Bowie sucks." This morning he was willing to talk civilly of DB, but he still said that David scares him because he's messed up. I guess envoking fear is better than envoking disgust. Anyway, there is a headliner on David on the top of the cover of the RS and an article at least one page long. If I can locate one, or get that guy to give me the article, I'll give a more thourough report. love, lizards, and linguini.

Just a little update: WXPN here in Philly played 2 songs off Earthling in its shuffle this morning, Little Wonder and Looking for Satellites. I also heard LW on DRE (going off the air Friday night alas). So the single is definitely getting a bit of airplay. Below Bob has kindly provided a URL for the Internet Single Chart. It is my impression that this chart is one of the biggest and most organized, and it focuses on new releases. So please BOA, get yer butss over there and flood them with votes!!! Their policy is that you must provide and email address and you can vote more than once but each subsequent vote REPLACES the previopus vote (i.e. you only get one vote). So we need everyone participating to get LW to the top of the charts!!! PS: Dumbfounded: I couldn't agree more :-)

Good Morning all!! To anyone in the Philly/Harrisburg/Wharton area, WXPN (88.5 FM) radio station does a random shuffles of 5 albums from 9-10 am TODAY, and they are including a preview of Bowie's Earthlings in today's shuffle. That usually amounts to 3-4 tracks off each album. Sorry I'm getting this info to you so late, but I just heard about it myself.

The Feb. 20th issue of Rolling Stone has a very favorable review of "Earthling." They do offer up the occaisional dig, but overall it's a good review. They gave it three and one-half stars, "best since Scary Monsters." "Earthling doesn't break any new ground, but it certainly captures the mood of contemporary popular culture - from the anguish of American industrial rock to the ecstasy of British dance music." With a statement like that maybe some of those milk-toast radio music program directors will take a chance and spin some Bowie for the rest of the world.

***Chapter7 "Might take a girl when I move on..."*** ...A few months had passed, and she was still depressed over David's leaving. One day, as she was sitting at her kitchen table, staring out the window, the phone rang. She got up slowly to answer it..."'allo," the voice on the other side said. "David..." she whispered, full of happiness. "Where are you...?" David laughed, "Look out the window," She turned around, and saw David out the window, using his flip-phone. He smiled at her, and waved. She put the phone down and ran out the door, and into David's open arms. He picked her up and spun her around, and then he kissed her. "I can't stay..." he said sadly. "...come with me..." She thought a few seconds..."I...will go with you..." she said and smiled up at him. David smiled, too, and kissed her. She ran back in the house, and up to her room. She pulled a suitcase out from under her bed, and threw some clothes into it. Then she went back down, and David took her to his van. He put her suitcase in, and then lifted her up into the van. David got in, pulling the door shut, and sat down beside her. The van started, and they drove off together...THE END. hmmm...maybe we need a sequel??

February Update at "The Ziggy Stardust Companion" www site. URL=http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/mbh/ . Along with new graphics and a minor revamp to lay-out, two new sections have been added this month to this web site: SOUND+VISION which features Ziggy Stardust midi sound files and IMAGES which (eventually) will allow quick and easy access to all pictures on THE ZIGGY STARDUST COMPANION. A major fan contribution (with Bowie insider links) is included this month in "ZIGGY" STORIES. The PICTURE OF THE MONTH is a (new to the web) scan of the classic David Bowie/Mick Ronson combination live on stage. A number of CD and LP scans have been made to enhance the FROM LP TO AU20 CD page. Curious to see what Vince Taylor - the inspiration for Ziggy Stardust and "The Legendary Stardust Cowboy" (that's where the "Stardust" bit came from) looked like? - Well simply go to FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS and find out!

A Dutch one, this time. Go to http://www.omroep.nl/radio/radio3/alterock.htm. Do not be alarmed by the Dutch language, all you have to do is click on the box beside Little Wonder, then enter your Name, Address (optional), Phone number (optional), email address, then click the 'Stem hier' button. It's not just for Dutch fans either: they encourage people from all over the world to vote. The top 50 gets counted down every weekend on Dutch radio, to an average listenership of 1 million. Little Wonder has already been on the chart the last three weeks without our help (as high as #11 last week). But this week it drops 9 places to #20 so it might need our help. It's probably dropping as fans of other bands with new singles out are getting organised, so we need to do a bit of mass voting ourselves. Bob

No, Earthling, believe it or not, Jump They Say didn't go top 5. Everybody thinks it did, but I looked it up in the Guinness book - it stalled at #9. Just like everybody thinks Heroes was a top 10 record in the UK (it actually stalled at #24), or the Stones "Love Is Strong" was a massive top 10 hit (like Little Wonder, it got to #14). Also, don't get your hopes up: 99% of UK singles, especially those of established artist, peak in the first week, when most people who like it decide to buy it. I'll be very surprised if Little Wonder is in the top 20 next week, it'll probably even drop out of the top 30, that's just the way things go these days, for everyone, not just Bowie. Doesn't matter though - the single's a hit, it's gotten three weeks of solid airplay, and it should ensure the album is a big hit.

First a documentary for about one hour then an interview for about 45 mn(very serious in the beginning & very laughy/joky at the end) and then a special surprise : 3 songs of the MSG show: -happy bday + cake -Jean Genie -Lou Reed & david during rehearsals -Waiting for the man -I'm afraid of americans (me too) it's better than excellent! It is sending me so far away...

***Chapter6 "I'll stick with you baby, for a thousand years..."***...It had been a few weeks before she could see David again. She went to his motel room using the back entrance, but when she got there, she saw a couple suitcases by the door..."David...?" she said. "Yeah?" David walked out of the other room and looked around quickly. "Heyyyy, hi..." he said when he saw her. He kissed her. "David, what is this? Where...?" she said in a trembling voice. "...we have to do the Europe Earthling tour," he said. He brushed a tear away from her face and said, "Don't worry..." But she burst into tears...and he held her, like on that first day, whispering to her that it was allright...When her tears had slowed down, she looked up into his deep blue eyes..."Come with me..." he said. "I...I can't," she said and looked down at the floor. He held her close, and told her he'd come back, after the tour, to see her.....He took her home a little later, and they stood on her porch. He kissed her, a kiss that seemed to her to go on forever...but then his touring van pulled up...he broke the kiss suddenly, and ran down the steps to the van...she stood there, watching the road, even after the van had turned the corner and was out of her sight...

Sara,
I'm looking into the problems with the discussion forum. I believe this is a problem with the way that the underlying code was installed on the machine which Teenage Wildlife is hosted on (which resides in Pittsburgh by the way).
I have solved one minor problem, which may have been causing people problems but if it does come back and say:

then it probably means that the message you were writing hasn't been saved. I'm working feverishly on this! ;-)

STAY LOW ON THE GROUND, FIRE CAN DRIVE YOU, SAVAGE AND AFRAID--I don't want knowledge, I want certainty! If I could control tomorrow's haze, the darkened shore wouldn't bother me. When the chips are down, I stumble like a blind man. Oh I get a little bit afraid sometimes--breathing in, breathing out, breathing in, only doubt. I'm torn between the light and dark! Where do we go to now? We're fighting with the eyes of the blind. He was as blind as the moon. He saw the sun in the night. She closed her eyes to keep her conscience blind--Nobody needs anyone. They don't even just pretend! In the blessed and cold, in the crutch-hungry dark was where we flayed our mark! Standing in the mouth of all that's pure, come straggling in your tattered remnants, you'll come to me in tears and rain--come come come along before the animals awake! You'll never need to doubt it, I'll make you so sure about it! Give the last kiss to me. I'm afraid I can't come out of the garden baby! A bad tempered child, you'll catch your death.

Great news from the UK, Dara. And I see the BOA (Bowie's Online Army) haven't been resting on their laurels over the weekend either. The Who are running scared over ar LEO. Okay, address for the day: Seems MTV Europe have playlisted the Little Wonder video on their Select MTV prog, which is a request show. And you can email them at selectvideos@mtvne.com. I know it doesn't do his loyal US fans much good, but at least if it's a big hit on MTV Europe, maybe MTV here will play it more.

Also from Interview 97: DB: I grew up in an extremely dysfunctional family. There's an awful lot of mental illness in my family, spanning two or three generations. Fortunately, somehow or other, I've been able to harness that experience in the kind of work that I've chosen to do. In fact, having a way of expressing myself has kept me sane. Sure, I've done serious mutilation in the past, emotionally and spiritually--albeit briefly. But it made me realize how much I need to encompass, BOTH in the conventional and the unconventional, the orthodox and the unorthodox sense, in my diet of life. What I'm good at doing, and what I'm best at doing, and what I understand and feel a part of and comfortable with is--a world of synthesis. I synthesize all my enthusiasms of a given moment. I'm not interested in one aspect of how we express ourselves. I like the visual arts, I like theater, film, music, and dance. It's not about original thinking. I let others decide how much of what I do is an original thought.

Somerville, Ma USA - Monday, February 03, 1997 at 07:55:58 (EST)
From the February 97 edition of Pulse: Bowie says "I'm not at all loyal to my audience." "I'm incredibly selfish and don't ever take their expectations into consideration. It's monstrous to people who work with me in more corporate areas. They say, 'You've got to be a crowd pleaser.' And I always say, 'No you haven't.' I am not a crowd pleaser. That's NOT what I'm good at doing." From Interview 97: Bowie says: Ever since I discovered the Dadaists I related to them. They became my family. (laughs) I could see the sense of their nonsense. These were fellow uncles and aunts. The idea that they completely deconstructed the world around them and destroyed every orthodoxy and said with glee that art is shit and art is dead and art no longer exists--was a triumphful rebelliousness of an extreme order. For me, it was the joy of recreating the gleeful mischief of the Dada era and applying it to rock. That's really what I think my work does. I create the LITTLE MONSTERS of our time.

I told them it has been released overseas, and that the video is supposed to be quite good. Well a week went by and they didn't play it. However, today i just got an email from The Juice saying: Kristi, that video hasn't arrived here yet, would you like another request. So there you have it!! Little Wonder WILL be played, we just need to keep our eyes out for it. I've decided to request Hearts Filthy Lesson insted, since that particular video hasn't been aired at all....good day :)

He gave her a pair of sweatpants and a shirt to wear. They went to the kitchen/living room in David's motel room. "I have to go today," she said. "Yeah...You can come back sometime..." "mm-hm..." They talked for awhile longer, and then he took her home.....They stood on her porch..'Come back soon," he said and smiled. He kissed her on her cheek. "allright..." she whispered...

Those of you in the USA: there is an interview with David on cnet's The Web program today. It's on SCI-FI at 11pmET, 8pmPT. It's a one hour show and the interview is the second to the last thing on. It was on earlier this morning, too. The piece of the interview is kinda lame... they ask him about releasing Telling Lies on the net (never even mention LW or Earthling), his aol chat appearance, and his other internet activities. (It's a cyber show) They show some clips of the b-day bash (the Jean Genie one we all have seen), the video for Telling Lies, and others. Keep watching though, because during the credits they play pretty long clips of the vids for Telling Lies and Little Wonder. The LW clip is longer than any other I've seen, for those of you, like me, who haven't seen the full video yet. Love and Lizards.

ZIGGY AND OUR TEENAGE DREAM By Madeline Ziggy was our saviour. He rescued my only friend Lisa and I (two American kids with very British taste in music) from teenage boredom and launched us through outer space to his very own planet, somewhere beyond Pluto. The US TV show In Concert featured the final Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars concert at London's Hammersmith Odeon. It was the first and only time we would see Ziggy live in action (besides the hundreds of magazine photos and posters we had). The stage was dark, the focus was soft and the camerawork shaky and evasive. Ziggy was shrouded in mystery. He was definitely from the cosmos; androgynous, surreal and seductive, perfect porcelain skin, unearthly mismatched eyes with a foreign, piercing stare. It was impossible to discern if he was for real, or if this was in impeccable performance. We saw this on a black & white TV, yet it was still utterly compelling. We had found our ultimate icon, and there he was announcing his final performance. Our devastation mounted. We never got to see Ziggy live. When Ziggy landed his space ship on stage at New York's Radio City Music Hall I was alone in my room watching the clock, forbidden by mom to attend such an event, yet knowing that he had landed on stage - at the exact moment the second hand reached eight o' clock - in a cloud of smoke with "Moonage Daydream" reverberating throughout the stratosphere. I could swear I heard it faintly from my room twenty miles away. Although we were into Bowie for a year already, his latest incarnation as Ziggy Stardust was the most fascinating. His final appearance as Ziggy was when Lisa and I saw him in quasi-kabuki drag on the TV show Midnight Special in 1974 (from the Marquee club in London) when we were in our pre-teens and highly impressionable. We were now sexually damaged for life. We had no concept of "camp" (except for summer camp) or about gay culture. Our innocent perception of gender was instantly perverted. We didn't know any other way to take this but at face value, and we took it - seriously. It was the most impressive sight we had ever seen (in all of our mere fifteen years on earth) and I remain to this very day as I said, damaged. Something cracked my world open that night and the void has never closed. When I watch the Floorshow now on video it's truly hilarious and just as colourful, but then it was utterly intriguing and so damned important. At the time this glowing, fleeting kaleidoscopic instant in history was gone in a flash with no hope of ever being seen again (in the pre-VCR days). I know I didn't blink once in the entire 90 minutes! We thought this must be the highest form of art or theater, or whatever alien genre it was and what did the mere boys at school know about art or beauty. On TV that night, Bowie had an angel beside him dressed all in white from platinum hair to white platform boots. The way he played guitar sounded so sweet it made me cry. Mick Ronson the icon, the perpetrator of guitar head, the rock in Glam rock was later to become a dear friend to me but this was yet inconceivable......(continued at The Ziggy Stardust Companion at http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/mbh in the "Ziggy" Stories section - check this great story out now...).

Whatever-it-was in the shadows came closer, and a shaft of light coming from the window caught its eyes...but she wasn't afraid; she recognized David's eyes, and stepped into the shadows with him..."We have to go the back way, because they wouldn't let you in to see me," he said in a low voice. "Oh, allright," she said and smiled. David took her hand and they went round the side of the building. He opened a door for her, and they went into the motel, and up a staircase...when they were at the top, he opened another door and they walked into a hallway. He took her to his room...locked the door...he kissed her...laid her down...

Oh! I almost forgot! BOWIEMANIAC, you can now download the pics of DB (well, most of them) off my site, including the lovely pic of DB at 50, and his cute baby pic too.

Hallo everyone. My homepage has been revamped this morning (while I suffer from only 3 hours sleep!). All the links work, and there is some new stuff as well. Check it out:

The landscape is too high--It's never been so far away-Its far far, far far far, far far far away. It's on the far side of town. I shake my pretty little head. Our feet grow small--sorry little girl! Far out in the red sky, far out from the sad eyes--takin my love just a touch too far! It's only forever--not long at all. Histories so small! A long long time ago, I got the small red box and I didn't know what to do. Put on your red shoes and dance the blues. Is small life so manic. Are these really the days?

Bye the way, does anyone else have a message for my petition page. I have had no new messages over the last three days :-(

Now I'm confused - if there is this forum for exchanging ideas and questions, what are we supposed to write in the guestbook? So now it is for talking? Or is it just for dumb questions, like this one?

Just tried out the Discussion Forum. Very scary!! What do all those little logos mean next to each message. Hope this doesn't mean that the guestbook will become obsolete. I kind of like it here. It's nice and easy.:-) :-)

LITTLE WONDER.

I have just added a new page to my homepage "Strangers When We Meet". It contains a review of both versions of the "Little Wonder" CD single as well as full track listings and cover art. I was lucky enough to get import copies of both CD's. So if your wondering what the difference between the two CD's will be than go here.
P.S. Sorry if I offended anyone about the silverchair remark and kids. I plead insanity. People were saying horrible things about Little Wonder and our beloved David and I was upset. Silverchair was an easy target as it was the song they played immediatly after saying terrible things about Little Wonder. Margot and others, please accept my apologies :-(
