Its such an honor for you to even mention me oh! great Nevada, that I am now entirely satisfied and will waste myself somewhere else. Its a great tribute to be an absolute zero as before birth and after death that is all we are. (When Chris Columbus discovered America, all of us on this board now were absolute zeros, isnt that amazing?) We are one for such a short time. I do love you all and will miss you, but as Bowie once said "I wave to the policemen but they dont wave back, they dont dig anything". If I can make you any happier than you already are by leaving this board, then I must do so. Even though David and his contemporaries might have sung about having no rules this is proof that was a "sea of sham". There are rules and company policy and I must have transgressed them along the way, but do remember If I did not love you all so much, then I would not have kept visiting . Bye Bye from Miss Stubbs.

The Zero/Hero (embodying a Moon/Sun Polarity) remains blissfully ignorant (only Heaven knows what/who he really is) of his "ultimate fate." Ignorance was prominent in the concept of the "blessed fool," whose number ZERO was "the age of the CHILD before his first birth-day." Gnostic doctrines taught that before each re-birth, the Soul must drink the Waters of Forgetfulness to blank out memories (Memory is a Swinging Door) of previous lives, and make the mind a Zero: "Gotta get Forgive & Forget hey-hey." The Know-Nothing Fool could be likened to Adam before the Fall, sinless by his very ignorance: "My rainy day girl tells me that the world is spinning around." With the spinning of Fate's "Wheels of Becoming," Great Zeroes are born again from the ranks of the dead (or, unenlightened), to begin new lives of learning: So in the end it "doesn't matter what you try to do or where you try to go/doesn't matter who WE REALLY ARE...

Another overlooked trinket on NLMD is the song "Zeroes." Of all the Major Arcana of the Tarot Card deck, only one card was "allowed" to remain in the standard pack that supplanted it--the Fool whose number was Zero. Among his other names were: the Clown, the Trickster, the Joker, Folly and the Madman. "You have arrived in the land of a thousand different names." The Joker, as the odd (often blank) card in some games, counted as the (highest) trump, at least temporarily: "Now tomorrow is back claiming redemption is on your heels." In card games, the Joker has "any desired value." Another name for the dunce-capped Carnival Fool in medieval Europe was a tantric one: "Prince of Love." "Someone out-timed my heart, stopping & preaching & letting love in." The fool was identified with a pagan "Hero" figure at the early, unenlightened, and infantile stage of the hero's life: "Something (good) is happening/I do not know what it is...

In other words, the protagonists in Shining Star, though outcasts, are persons of un-recognized merit, grace, and beauty! Again, Bowie, the voyeur sees the ironic "beauty in utter destruction..."

In Shining Star, Making My Love--the Outcasts of Society, the firebrands, rabble-rousers, trouble-makers are Dean, Eddie Boy, Tessie, Peter and Frank. "Scandalous Stars," like the fallen Stardust--their cinders/last sparks are "specks of dust that settle in the eye," the ashes of black exploded stars that have "ceased to shine" (whether cold or not--she shook me cold/everything but cold fire), but they still have "combustible" matter in them (dust would flow through our veins). Massive stars (myth-figures like the Beweley Brothers...) must implode when they die. Cold, dead stars, like the disgraced Stardust rise and fall and rise again in a regenerative/redemptive fire: "putting out fires with gasoline" "just to touch the flaming dove." Love is re-generated from the shining star. Cinder-wench, femme fatale, harlot-virgin, the "Lady Grinning Soul" was the mystic heart of the world. Either a "bellicose belle" like Pele's Volcano or Hell's Star, Ishtar, scintillating Star-dust is reborn in Bowie's Shinin star!

Gouster, I thought Chris Sandford's passage concerning Alan Parker was silly. Sandford made the recording session seem sinister, like Parker's riff was stolen. If you read it again, you'll see that Parker played back on electric what Bowie played on acoustic, and kept re-doing it until Bowie said that he heard what he needed. I don't have it in front of me, but IIRC "Loving the Alien" has nothing in it that says Parker was anywhere near Rebel Rebel when it was actually recorded; in fact, as you know, Bowie was the only musician on the original version that appeared on the 1990 box set. It's no great mystery how Bowie works. Carlos Alomar described a similar process on MTV way back around Let's Dance. Suggesting that someone else is responsible for Bowie's triumphs isn't unusual in these books either.

Thanks Alys, for the tip about the Bowie interview in National Post. Hope everyone else caught it. Bowie interviewing himself is a bizarre happening indeed, though it does remind of when Glenn Gould interviewed himself on radio, but that was even more bizarre.

"sometimes it gets so lonely". One of our most requested albums by males of a certain age(mid life crisis)in the record library is "Low".(These sullen creatures often quietly request a brown paper bag to take it away in). To encourage more female participation in the record library we have removed agressive male furniture like leather chesterfield sofas. These only use to attract the local whores, who were quite happy to sprawl and lounge about on the leather and recessed studs waiting for a man with a brown paper bag.

David Bowie is THE best artist that has ever graced this earth!!! From Ziggy to the thin white duke he's had amazing performances and records. One of the truest things ever said came out of his mouth: "People say that i killed the 60's. But as far as i'm concerned, i just helped bury them." -db Anyway, great page you got here! david bowie kicks unmeasurable amounts of ass! - octaevia

The pretty things are indeed going to hell.The Y somes relentless attack on the X somes is most apparent in old ladies, who have beards, low voices and of course "leathery skin"..Luckily some property is not affected by male violence as it use to be.In the library I have noticed that books do not yellow and fall to bits like they use to.This disintigration of our history was caused by the acrid nervous sweaty palms of males using the library. We are fortunate now that the male is being dumbed down enough so that he does not bother to use libraries. We have also saved a fortune in air conditioning consumption, which I had to turn up everytime I checked the male washrooms.

Back-Track: Tonight is really just a slight pause of an album containing only 4 Bowie originals (Blue Jean/Loving the alien/Tumble & Twirl/Dancing with Big Boys) Nothing to get upset about really. But NLMD has patches of brilliance yet un-buried... Even DB should re-vamp some of this stuff. One over-looked Gem for example is Shine-ing Star: "Peter met Frank/formed a dummy run gang/blew heads outta shape for the name of Trotsky, (Russian revolutionary/commissar of war/leader of the Red Army), Sinn-Fein, Hitler cashdown. The song is an "epic lying dormant." Anyway here are pieces of a poem inspired by conflicts between Britain & Ireland-very similiar tone to Shinin Star: "They told me how he was shot in the chair/his wounds from battle/all bleeding & bare/his fine body twisted/all battered & lame/they soon made him part of/the Patriot Game. Bowie's epic poetry draws a parallel: "No hope heroes cover the page/debts in hell/fingers in blood/Poor bodies/covered in scabs/threw it away/another life in the grave!

Hi Spidey--no I have never read the Wild Road. Who is Gabriel King? What's the book about? Is it science fiction? Back to DB... The success of Outside, Bowie's hypertext gothic drama, owes a lot to the existence of other "texts" within the sci-fi/detective novel genre as well as music/film/television along those lines... The shows Millennium and X-Files come to mind. Of course, David's ability to "Cut-Up" these genres, is what makes his hyper-text so very plastic...! In all likelihood, Contamination will be a very inter-textual experience, weaving and re-weaving the frames and boundaries of "the continually re-interpretable" Outside.

The beauty of mother "with child" is is caused by the Y somes playing on the vanity of the X somes (a small weakness). While they are making mother beautiful, the Y somes are secretly contaminating her body so that every full moon, the Y somes can enjoy what they do best "violence". As the X somes struggle each month they no longer have the womanpower to retain their mistress's beauty. Leather is very symbolic of the male body,and it is no surprise that it originates from a stupid male bovine creature and enjoys being beaten.

How would "You" interpret the puzzling line "Seek for a leather journey?" I read it as "Search for a leather journal--"a leather diary" but not just any diary perhaps "biblical journals." Journeyers on a "spiritual pilgrimage to a promised land" might seek, for a leather journal. Of course this journalist/journal seeker might be into all kinds of bindings...? Bowie does wonders with this kind of double entendre!

Also of interest in the song, "Bleed like a craze, dad," are Bowie's allusions to the Hollywood Production Code and Depression Era Escapism: "Living on a movie--all the Shirley/Charley films on film." The continuing "proliferation" of these films is a living testament to the genius of Chaplin and the "sweet love-ability" of Temple. Charlie Chaplin represented pre-code/pre-cloaked Hollywood. Shirley Temple became the Code's most beloved Masquerader. Pre-code Hollywood was full of loose dames (Mae West in particular), hot sex, and coked-up killers (Cagney perhaps) who'd do anything for a pot of jack. It was a world that was often amoral/chaotic (similiar to the tone in Buddha Movie). This was an industry that nonchalantly gave "King Kong" permission to crush cars and eat people: "Never stopped to think about hollywood King Kong." The line "Domino on the side" is odd. Domino is latin for "lord." One reading: "God on the side." More fitting reading perhaps is: "A cloak with half-mask worn to conceal identity..."

Hi Margot--you got me to thinking (sorry about that) when you mentioned "Headaches." In "Bleed like a craze," the lines "Party on the dead, put a net through his headache." remind me of a character in a computer game who was having "tremendous headaches," a manifestation of his undeveloped magical powers. His headaches later became an asset. Also the lines "Come together, party (party on the dead); footnote on the footstone." One possible reading is: "In order to avoid plagiarism (in this case perhaps grave-robbery) when "borrowing" what belongs to another, one must indicate the source by footnote. The final resting places of "the dead" are filled with "folk art in stone"--tempting grave robbers. Headstones, unlike footstones, contain information on the dead. Footstones contain the art elements and decorations. PS: In Game Spells the "Featherfall" Rune will prevent the affected person from suffering damage "by falling down an open grave," but this spell is usually not worth the effort of casting...

And of course (last but not least) the lines in "Bleeds like a Craze, dad" that allude to the "Thunder Birds"--the birds of alchemy and magic: "Astral, Kestrel fed into the featherfall, fed him on a pencil carving, you will never get." The human soul aspires upwards flying free of the restraints of the earth bound body and seeks the heavenly light. Kestrels or "falcons" usually hover before dropping on prey from above, pinning victims to the ground. In gaming systems a "featherfall" is a type of spell along with "flaming sphere/shocking grasp/fireball/lightning bolt..." Perhaps Bowie's interest in computer games got transcribed into the song as well? The Occultist's Magic is a major theme in most of these games...Suburban Birds and Suburban Buddhas abound!

Okay here it is in English: On Low, Bowie's word created "sound-visions." These “sound visions” are the psychological imprint of the sound, or the impression it made on OUR (not DeeB's) senses: Maybe Bowie thought that there was no real connection between the sound and the concept to which it referred: The "meanings" of Bowie's "sound visions" may not be anything to him, but they pop up in our own interpretations. We sometimes desire to find meanings in Bowie's words but perhaps nothing really does mean nothing. In other words, sometimes a sound means jack shit to the person who thought of it, but when the general populace gets a hold of the sound, they apply their own meanings to the noise, coz it reminds them of personal experiences. Get it? Translation of Nevada-ese: the trick with Nevada is to remove a buncha phrases, then read the basic sentence. Then apply your own interpretation to it. ;-) Nothing so stuffy or pretentious as some people might think. Love you pammit! XXOO

Hope this explanation helps--Example of Bowie's Sound-Vision: In the song, "Bleeds like a craze, dad," the "chorus," "Shine/Shine/Shine" is a perfect example of a Sound-Vision. The lyrics allude to the paradox of Light and Sound. Hollywood scandals, the jazz age, drug hallucinations, barroom brawls all come to mind. To "Shine" (Light when distributed creates refractions/schisms) is to "Look Daggers." Scintillate/Eclipse/Outshine--All the Shirley/Charley films on film. A "Shine" (Bedlam/Brangle/Broil) "Speaks Daggers." Satire/Scandal/Gossip--"The Parlous Parlors." To Shine upon also means "to take up the cudgels for," "to foment, or fan the flames of." Hence the "Party" atmosphere of the song conjures images of death/danger, hollywood hooligans, the dog-days of summer, the family fracas/street fight... In other words a Noisy Shindy--seethe-ing/smoking/glowing hot like a volcano: "Shine, shine shine, bleeds like a craze, dad." In the I Ching "Thunder Shines"-Lightning/fire/shock/electric/violent/noise...

The idea that all the senses are combined and that one can "smell" colors "taste" music etc...It creates a new sense that encompasses the others.. Therefore " so big" The content of this collection of stimuli is realized through art in any medium. The "gift" of sound and vision.. when it is portrayed, the sensory overload can relax ( made of wax) hmm.. well, that's the best I can explain it anyway.. Sorry if it made things more confusing :(

On Low, Bowie's linguistic signs united, not things and names, but "sound-visions." The latter was not the material sound, a purely physical thing, but the psychological imprint of the sound, the impression it made on our senses: "With this sound, mark the ground." Bowie intuited, that there was no essential connection, perhaps, between the sound or shape of a word and the concept to which it referred: "Shine, shine, shine." The "meanings" of Bowie's "signs" may not be contained within them, but they probably arise in our on-going interpretations and readings of them. We may, at times, desire to find "meanings" in Bowie's words but perhaps "nothing means nothing" or "Somethings are so big, they make no sense."

Ok this is probably a stupid question, but, is there an email addy or a snail mail addy for David to congratulat him? I mean, shouldnt we send him a card? This is a wonderful happy time having a little one on the way and all! We did it for his 50th birthday and I'm positive this is much more significant to him! Plus we need to talk him out of quitting smoking before the little darling arrives. We all want him to live longer!

But the question I have in regard to the song "Right," is he on the "Giving" or "Receiving" End?

USA - Friday, February 18, 2000 at 10:26:16 (EST)
From the start, David Bowie has been concerned with "Signs" and "Signposts." Even when he intends to communicate "nothing," sign processes are taking place. DB manifests his own brand of semiotics in Holy Holy: "Holy holy--high-high-lie-low-lie." And in the song Right: "Up there, up there, (giving it)." Bowie erects barriers to communicate messages to his audience on Low: In the song "Some Are," the myth-making Bowie connotes, "Cinder colour blazing eyes..." In Warszawa, he chants "Cheli venco deho/Malio/Mmmm-mm-mm-ommm." Again his mythic signs show up on BOS: '"Good god" or "My" I cry and die and lie beside,' 'Astral/Kestrel/Fed into the featherfall.' On Outside, in the song I'm Deranged, there appears to be an absence of any degree of necessity between the signified and signifier of the sign: "Big deal Salaam/be real deranged salaam." That seems to be true of Warszawa as well, where as in the song Right, there is the presence of necessity between the signified and signifier of the sign...

Just to add my pathetic two cents (first time in ages I've looked at or added to the GB). . .my dad was 54 when I was born, and 56 when my younger sister was born. And THAT was back in 1970...nowadays it's obviously less and less unusual for older dads (and older moms) to have babies. And I say more power to them!

Who's that tapping at my cellar door? Should I let them in? Not by the hair of my... oh nevermind, it's still family hour. Jokes aside, there is an interesting thread on the MB2K about seeing the new baby, and having kids in the spotlight. Kind of makes you think about how hard it must be for a kid when his parents are famous. I bet that is a tough road.

I don't quite remember the story/rumor, but is Ramona A. Stone the mother of Baby Grace? If she is, she is very much like that barbarian witch, Medea who betrayed her family to help her lover. She kills her children! The theme of infanticide--"We are hungry men," pops up in Glass Spider? If anybody finds this theme in any other Bowie song--let me know! Baby Universal Indeed!

The Spider/The Labyrinth/The Minotaur: Bowie weaves his own mythology: The half-man/half-bull Monster who lived in the Labyrinth ate "seven girls" and "seven boys" annually. Ariadne, a kind of Spider Woman, helped Theseus find and kill the Minotaur in the Labyrinth. She gave him a ball of thread which he unwound as he entered the labyrinth. Theseus was able to escape the maze by following the thread back to the entrance...Bowie intuits, "If I can not control the web we weave, my life will be lost..." About the "Killer Spider Mother," Bowie reports, "Having devoured its prey it would drape the skeletons over its web." Move over Jeffrey Dahmer!

Nevada... I don't know if he was serious, but I would think he'd know better than to screw around with the hopes of his hardcore fans by saying he wanted to work on 2. Contamination if he didn't mean to do it. As for this whole baby thing, I don't really dig kids, won't be having any, and doubt I'd even seriously consider even babysitting his (unless I could snoop in his medicine cabinet or sock drawer, or something), so I can't say if it's a good thing or not. Besides, it's none of my business. :) If he wants to be a grandad's age when his kid gets out of high school, that's his business. He's probably the only person I know of who could pull that off...

Hi KMSV, thanks for the support. Just out of curiosity, do you think DB was serious when he said he was finishing up 2. Contamination? I would hope after hours, the new album would be more complex. "We shall go to town" kind of stuff would be good. PS: Do you think the new baby will inspire a song? Heaven help us!

Bowie's fascination with The Blood: The "Sangreal" or Grail (Real Blood) alludes to the blood of Saints, Martyrs, Sacred Suicides...? Perhaps Stardust/Joe the Lion/Baby Grace? Bowie concludes, "We are mystified by blood. It is our enemy now. We do not understand it. Can not live with it. Can't, well...you know?" "The towels containing the blood are deposited in hazardous-waste bags." "Bodies, poor little bodies stopped bleeding...the bodies on the screen...blood on video." "The sinful man burns his bloody robes." "Midwives to history put on their bloody robes." "A nation striped with blood/the sun drips blood/bloody skies/bloody clouds." Is this the ultimate contamination of the holy grail? "Blood prints from life." "I would start to believe if I were to bleed." "Christian tyrannical...we're bleeding for you?" The pain and blade (of new Inquisitions) turn and turn again. Something in our blood!

A bit of trivia: The name Ramona means Wise Protector (kind of like a guru or knight). Seems paradoxical that Ramona Stone is anything but a protector and defender. She is more like the fearful demon in Bowie's song "She shook me cold." Does DB have a sort of "attraction-repulsion" complex when it comes to women. Iman and Angie are like god and the devil... I guess he's torn between the light and dark again! COLDFIRE--that's the feeling in his heart when "Stone" approaches!

Bowie and Knights Templar: "The Union of Christ and his bride--it's a christian code for a pretty pink rose." "I dream between the blade and the tongue of the rose on your cheek--christians and the unbelievers hanging by the cross and nail." In middle-eastern liturgical practices surrounding the ancient rites of the "sacred marriage" the anointing of the "sacrificed" bridegroom/king was a holy ceremony reserved to his bride! The legend of the holy grail secretly celebrated Mary Magdalen as the Bride of Christ. Because the legend of the Holy Grail contained and preserved the truth about Magdalen, it was ruthlessly suppressed by the Inquisition. The "sacred marriage" of Christ and Magdalene embodies the reconciliation of the opposites--spirit and flesh. Heaven's in Here/Loving the Alien/Pretty Pink Rose all allude to the reviled and scorned Magdalen. Baby Grace, the Rose-kissed foxy girls and Ramona Stone might also embody the paradox of the grail--"it's all very puzzling."

Hey Bowie fanatics! Have you ever checked out this British band called Pulp? They are awesome and the main singer, Jarvis Cocker, sounds just like David Bowie with that sexy crooning voice. The music is very Bowiesque, too. Some of the vocal styles are so similiar to Bowie it is creepy. Great albums are This is Hardcore, His 'n' Hers and Different Class. Of course, Bowie is still the bomb, but definatly check out this band! Lots of love to David to V-day from me.

At the bottom of her page, there is a link to another site with a bunch of stuff she wrote about being bisexual. Poor grammar aside, it too is a fackin' hoot to read. The whole groupie central site is pretty amusing actually. Didn't David once say she was the "second worst mistake I ever made?" Well read her stuff and you can sorta see why.

Bowie wrote about the "American" Psycho many times: "Leader of packs/Shadow of death--Killer in Chic." "I slash them cold/I kill them dead." "My heads full of murders/where only killers scream." "Deep in the heart of Cupid/Murders on the heels of love." What are your favorite Bowie "Psycho" lyrics?

David Bowie and the Diamond Dog: Tibetan Buddhist teachers bring us the initiation of fire in the form of the Highest Yoga Tantra (Crown Chakra/Kether) known as "The Diamond Vehicle." Our "knowledge of love" is complete when we identify with the bonding of the Light and the Abyss and move beyond the opposing poles of Nirvana and Samsara--Heaven and Hell or the "Sun-God" and the "Moon-Dog." The Dia-Mond (World Divinity) is Cosmic Consciousness--the Oneness with All. It is also known as "The Seventh Body" because now you have crossed even the world of causation. You have gone to the "Original Source," to that which is before Creation and that which will be after Annihilation. From the Cosmic to "Nothingness" there is just a Happening: uncaused, unprepared for, unasked for. You can not cling to the Seventh, you can not say "I have reached!" "Nothing to be Desired." A mind that is not longing for anything, then it happens...The Seventh plane in a sense is an ultimate death. Diamond Crown Halo like clear Glass...

On the train to work this morning, I channel-surfed into the middle of one of Today FM’s (Irish radio station) fake “celeb interviews” that they do every morning featuring various local and international celebs. Bowie is an infrequent ‘participant’ but it was his turn this morning. The guy impersonating him was doing an awful job accent-wise – I thought he was trying to do Jimmy White until the content made it obvious he was doing Bowie. Most of it was pretty tame stuff. Some selected highlights:
DJ: So what size shoes do you wear?
DB: 4 and a half.
DJ: Oh, I see, so you’re very small then.
DB (becoming angry): What are you trying to say?
DJ: Nothing, nothing, just….
DB (aggressively): Ever seen The Man Who Fell To Earth? You want to watch that some time mate.
DJ: OK. Let’s play something now
DB: You going to play one of mine?
DJ: Um, I don’t know. I played one yesterday, and will play one tomorrow too probably.
DB (in a menacing tone): And you’re gonna play one today too. It’s in our agreement.

Must confess I was a bit dubious when I heard about Ferry's latest - but isn't it lovely! Feels like he's found a very natural space, one that maybe he has been resisting. I suppose there's no reason why db shouldn't delve into similar areas for inspiration. I don't care what he draws from really as long as the results are exciting and NEW. My personal preference is for unexpected juxtapositions, layers, complexities - can’t get enough of Outside. Well no, I like very pared back simple stuff as well - as long as there is some sort of 'extreme' element about it (eg. extremely and gorgeously acoustic). As for nostalgia, db has said he's going to rework his oldest songs – they'd make great radio fodder but I hope he'll stretch us more than that.

Ferry is searching his roots while Bowie is escaping them. think of Bowie performing Absolute Beginner's with the same kind of orchestra as Ferry is using now. wow

Dreams with db in them are usually an early warning sign of depression/anxiety for me. Last night I dreamt he was in concert and on Under Pressure, not only was Gail not there, there were these 3 female vocalists none of us recognised and who weren't very good. But the worst part was that db had styled his current do into the 87 mullet with lots of gel! This is clearly going to be a very deep depression....

The clamorous "Hallo Spaceboy" alludes to Sirius, the brightest star in the night sky. The greeks thought that Sirius added it's heat to that of the sun: "You are my moon/you are my sun--heaven knows what you are." "I've got moon, I've got sun." "I thought my day would come--under the moon and under the sun..." It's stalking time for the Moon Boys!

Anyway, if you ever read this on one of your daily internet sessions, come to www.bhuna.net and have a listen to our free mp3's. They're only a couple of mins long so it's the least you can do. After all, I spent my entire life listening to you! Anyway

In the song Hallo Spaceboy, to shout "Hallo," or "Hullaballoo" means to "incite the dogs to chase." A halo (rain-cloud/bright aureole) is a circle of light around the moon seen in an eclipse: "Your silhouette is so stationary." "Moon-dust will cover you." "The rain sets in, it's the angel-man." "I shake and stare at the watery moon." The approach of the Angel of Death can be seen only by dogs. The star of the "lord of death" is Sirius, the Eye of the Dog: "Under the moonlight, this "Sirius" Moon Light." Halos are worn by martyrs and signify victory over the flesh: "The reeking flesh is as romantic as hell." Moon dogs eat the flesh of the dead and carry their souls to the "fantastic death abysss." "It could not be done without dogs." And again the seven: Seven rays radiate from the dove of the holy ghost: "Be sweet, Sweet Dove." The raving mad dog is assuaged with caresses by doves: "You are released but your custody calls..."

Yes Rancell it is w/ Bernard and its great check out cdnow they have on line for some 30 second snipets. I did know about that hunter/ronson album produced by Bernard now that sounds like a treat! thanks! Mercury would not premote anything that good. Saw the Nile pull out in Billboard lil picture w/ Davey from BTWN session and another picture up front also same Peter Gabreil sessions did'nt buy yet will after work. we are jamming at work now The FREAK.

Nite, thank you for the tip. I have a Chic studio reunion from the early 90s that's a lot of fun, but I didn't know they got together live. Before or after Bernard died? Edwards was often overlooked, but he was obviously integral to Chic. Besides playing on Let's Dance, which everyone forgets, Bernard produced stuff, some of which I'd rather forget, but one wonderful album Bowie fans would love and likely have never heard: "YUIORTA," around 1989-1990, by Ian Hunter and Mick Ronson. How Mercury couldn't make that album a hit is beyond me, and the fact that it hasn't been a source for covers, both hard rock and ballads, is baffling. Hunter's writing and singing were no less terrific than they were 10 years earlier at the top of his solo career, and Edwards' production was excellent. And Mick was just typically stunning.

hey Rancell, thanks for the Nile tip. I love Chic, and everything Nile has done. He is a great dude very cool to talk to--no attitude. Very laid back New York. I picked up Chic's reunion record recently (which I highly recommend to the funky disco sect), and during introductions he mentions David a few times when introducing Omar Hakim and some other folks Phillip Saisse I believe. It was recorded April '96 and has some great cameos Slash, Stevie Winwood, Sister Sledge. I can't say how great it would've been if Davd was there to play something say; Let's Dance, China Girl , BTWN, Night Flites, or or even Miracle Goodnight. But David was headway in the Outside tour or taking a breather from it. RIP Bernard. Let's Dance is an Enigma Part Davd, Part Nile(mostly), part Stevie Ray. the only Bowie type song on it is Ricochet. Stevie Ray comes off a little polished, but thats the disco of it. I love it and still think it's one strong recording. And of coarse BTWN

Message for Cobalt Blue if you bother to check Guestbook: The most comprehensive Myth of the Seven (a reference Bowie plays with a lot) is Inanna's Descent! She goes into place of darkness in search of her beloved (Total Pieta). The place is surrounded by seven walls and has seven gates: "And Naked, with her splendor, and her power, and her beauty all gone from her, the Lady of the Gods came before the "Ruler of the World Below," (Pretty Thing goes to Hell). She sees the light no more, she eats/feeds upon clay and sand. Eternally damned? No. The result of her journey through "hell" is that she will gain "Truth." Once only a child of light, she lacked the experience of darkness. She had no truth, only naivete. She meets her own Shadow. Seven times she passes thru a gate/seven times she abandons an implement of her power. At the final gate her "persona" is stripped away from her. In her own private hell, she rots, but the Descent into the depths is essential: "I listen to the shadows/play among the graves."

OK so Bowie is still interested in the Contamination 2 Project. I assume this album will explore the topic of Genetic Contamination. Gene-engineered products have been linked to cancer, neurological/autoimmune disorders and infectious diseases. Foodborne illnesses, re-emerging viruses, bioterrorism, germ weapons in all likelihood will be topics on the album. Bowie picked a very BIG subject. Contamination is not just about pesticides, sewage sludge, wastewater, urban sprawl, overpopulation, climate change, landfills, or factory farming... It's also about harnessing the Gene and remaking the world. If Bowie is at all on the cutting edge of this topic. The album will be about Genetic Contamination--the most frightening form of Contamination. A current hot issue is the "compelling transgenic evidence for transmission of BSE Prions to Humans." Mad Cow Disease. And of course lets not forget Ebola... This album is a "Must Do" for DB. If he does it right, it could have lasting impact in 1st decade 2000-like D Dogs!

It’s a shame that the Nile Rodgers 25-years-in-the-biz centerfold supplement to this week’s Billboard isn’t on the ‘net, or at least the free part of the Billboard site. But if you see the Feb. 7 issue on the stand, take a look at it, particularly if you enjoyed the Tony Visconti web page explaining production work on Bowie albums. The interview with Nile, and Bowie’s rather lengthy statement/tribute, are mirror images of one another. First, Nile is a little obtuse, but, using Bowie as a principal example along with Diana Ross, he basically says that the biggest stars don’t really understand what he is doing or why he does it, and they tend to be put off by him. That’s why, he says, he tends not to do the next immediate followup records. For his part, Bowie said that he thought that Nile had “Let’s Dance” so far wrong that Bowie came close to killing the project entirely. Bowie said/wrote that even when LD was a hit soaring up the charts, he still didn’t appreciate what Nile had done, and suggests that he didn’t like it. With all that, and too much to write here, Bowie said grudging respect gave way to admiration and a reunion about 10 years later. Bowie had nothing but praise for Chic, linking it to his 70s soul work, and nearly promises to work with Nile in the future, though he does qualify this with a “hopefully.” For his part, Nile says that Bowie is the embodiment of rock art, and he calls Bowie rock’s Picasso. A list of Nile’s biggest (30 or 40) chart hits contains the Let’s Dance-China Girl-Modern Love triumverate, with LD, at four or 5, Nile’s highest charting rock-oriented single, behind Diana’s "Upside Down," a couple of the Chic tunes (IIRC) and one or two others.

In regard to previous comment: Does anyone know how Bowie's Wife Iman (Faith) has influenced his spiritual interests? Is she a Muslim? The Name "Iman" refers to Faith in the Oneness of God and the finality of the Prophethood of Muhammad. She could definitely say: "I am with Name." Anyway it would be interesting to know how she has influenced him in regard to Islam (I-Salaam) if at all?

"Big Deal Salaam" and The Last Hour: One of the signs of the "Last Hour" is to restrict one's use of the Islamic Greeting 'Salaam' to those who are known to one. Yet, the Prophet's teaching is to greet a Muslim regardless of whether we know that Muslim. These greetings enhance the harmony and peace between Muslims.

I don't think Virgin the store has any link to Virgin the record company any more. Both started life as part of Richard Branson's group, but Virgin the record company got sold ages ago (it's now part of the EMI group).

The only person it had anything to do with I told them how I felt. and it's done.. I've moved on...But it upsets me that someone else ( not you) has decided to get involved in this too... Real life has enough challenges without somebody spreading rumors about me that are untrue. And this is the last post I will make about this matter, here or anywhere else. I've got way too much to sort through at the moment. Real things in Real life. I don't have time for petty arguments from assumptions based on someone needing to say bad things about others to make themselves feel a little less insecure. I've taken care of my end of this problem... I just wished erronously that they would be honest with themself and then with the ones that they say they care about.

That is where I got my copy of the cd Rancell. I haven't checked out Virgin Mega stores, but it always seems that HMV gets bowie imports before those silly sods at Virgin get them. Which is ironic since Virgin is David's Label (take note of that Nancy Berry). I know why I also like Holly's wail in Thurday Child, because it sounds like I'm doing what I do the best (I know that is boldly pretentious of me, but hey, that is what I hear.) Listening to some Talvin Singh now and I'm blowing outta work Peace Y'all. One Love.

Yeah, Nite, I've noticed that while the two Thursday's Child imports have sold and been replenished just about everywhere I've seen them, the Pretty Things single just sits. There's no reason to buy it, and I haven't. Between the time they put 'em out Friday, and lunch yesterday, the stock of Survive at HMV on Fifth Avenue nearly disappeared. On Friday, there were about a dozen Disc 1s and five Disc 2s; yesterday, there was (oddly) one of the former and two of the latter.

I listen with a proper listen to the survive live single and I find I was wrong. Garson is mixed too low. I heard him ok in Thursday Child, but the mix defaults to more of a guitar driven then percussive piano. Still, it is very good, but I would like to have the keyboards a little more up front like the end of Rebel Rebel on SNL. I like Holly's wail much more especially since I found a used copy of her album. I am getting to know her style much better and really starting to dig it. Missed her shows though they where in another Planet called the Upper West side which is too far in new york terms from my Williamsburg/East Village dwellings. Plus I was out that Thursday nite in soho and Friday was headding up north to go skiing. Any New Yorkers check them out? I'm courious to check out the Survive 1 single, but It seems too expensive for one song. I did not even get Pretty Things go to Hell, because I had everythi9ng on it allready.

New Thread: The Song, "The Pretty Things are Going to Hell" reminds me of Thomas Campion's "Beauty is but a Painted Hell." The following lines say it all: "She wounds them that admire it/she kills them that desire it." The gnostic/buddhist religions were more realistic in their acceptance of death, making it the sage's duty to realize the ugliness, corruption, and decay in nature as fully as he might realize its beauty: to accord death the same value as birth.

Telling Lies: Separating Truth from Lies (Tell the Truth) on the Net is mostly a question of "common" sense. Apply the same skills you'd use in a Library and you will soon weed out the "irrelevant" and the "dishonest." A good public library houses collections and archives of references, books, periodicals, and other materials that in many cases carry more Intellectual Weight than a site on the Web. Librarians can also help you track down the "REAL THING" darling earthlings, so enlist their help.

The live version single Survive is indeed great, rancell. Kudos (again) to Mark Plati. CD1 is a bit more disappointing, given that the only "new" thing on it is the rather lacklustre Devries mix (though that has grown on me a bit - I like the keys), but I suppose that version is aimed more at non-fans or casual fans who wouldn't already have the Stigmata soundtrack and think, like Patrick Bateman did, that "live music sucks". Finally, congrats to Bowie on the Brits nomination - great to see him getting recognition in a major category. It's unusual to see an artist thus nominated years *after* they've received a "Lifetime Achievement Award" (which is usually a polite way of saying "You've *had* a great career"). It would be great if he could manage to perform there and show them how it's done as he did last year and in 1996.
