Jeez Kali, one would think that you are Sweden-biased! ;-) Although, I've been to Sweden and Norway, and I think they look rather the same!

And, well, it's April Fools day tomorrow... what interesting things will appear?

And Lilith, Scotland is a lovely place. They have such wonderful things coming out of kegs and taps that it's easy to forget that it rains all the time.

So Glasto is definite then? Excellent, can't wait.

Why Can't I get hold of Christiane F???? I've looked everywhere. I saw this film when I was about 14 and I remember it being great. I need to see it again.

Anyhow, come to the bhuna site to download the opening track from our new cd. Local press describe it as "status Quo meets blur!!!!!!" but don't let that put you off :-) www.bhuna.net

Lilith, why move to Scotland when you live in beautiful Norway? IMHO, I'd move to Norway before Scotland (tho I'm not saying that Scotland is not as good as Norway...just personal preference!) Now, if I had a few hundred thousand dollars set aside, I'd drop everything and move to my fave Nordic country...ta!

On my first day in London many, many years ago, I managed to visit the Hammersmith Odeon..as an homage to Ziggy of course. Lo and behold, Ian Dury was performing that very night. I got a ticket, fell asleep due to some major jet lag during some of the opening acts, but was wide awake for Ian. I've been a fan ever since. I'll miss you Ian.

From where I sit, Ian Dury kinda looked and sounded like a novelty act. But he surely was a class act, and a talented act too. Smart guy. He'll definitely be missed. RIP.

Gershwin Hotel is a wickedly funny and place to stay at. VeryWarhole-esque and artsy. Funny Lounge downstairs, Internet access downstairs ( ask KMSV),funny and very,very slow olden elevator. Great Location on 27th and 5th Ave, Starbucks around the corner. Lotsa garbage around the garbage cans. Nah, its cool as hell........one can feel Warhol there since the building is covered with Warhol pics and murals in the guestrooms... Hmm, its fridaynight and I just had this weird dream that Bowie was DJ-ING,yes like a DJ in our downtown Vancouver's Robson Square, with a huge crowd watching, boy it was weird, he played Pearls Girl by Underworld of all tunes

Ya know, when I saw that story and those superimposed pictures last year of Bowie and the Yankees, I thought it was kinda cool, no doubt the beginning of lots of money for Ultrastar too. But the picture on page 3D of the Life section of today's USA Today is rather startling, and probably less cool. You'll find a cropped version of the picture of Bowie and Hanson that appears in the paper, and the story, here: http://www.usatoday.com/life/enter/music/lemindex.htm

Yes, I know this isn't a Bowie post, but after so much snow and cold, it's nice to have real weather again, and to be able to see the grass, and the sun, and birds chirping...just in time for spring :)

RE: David has lost his melodic golden touch. Good riddance! Yeah, he had some shining moments with Carlos, et al., but let's face it, Reeves resurrected the artist in the man. If Reeves hadn't come along, we probably still be treated to pap opuses like Never Let Me Down and Tonight. Hasn't DBs music been more exiciting, more engaging with Reeves? If anything, MORE REEVES!

Regarding the vote:.....COME ON PEOPLE, what's the matter with you all? David needs a guitarist who has some melody, I don't think Reeves is that sort of player and as a result David has lost his melodic golden touch. He's slowly getting back to it on "hours". Bring back Carlos as a rythmn I say and mabe Earl or Stacey Heydon on lead.

Surprised a Bowie mention as crucial as this morning's New York Post item hasn't been posted here yet. Liz Smith's take on the Bowies appears at http://www.nypost.com/gossip/liz.htm. Don't expect someone approaching octagenarian-ism to analyze the latest album's themes. But as we know there is a vibrant market for discussion of David's and Iman's physical appearance. On that subject, Liz doesn't miss a thing. Hollywood.com also carries her column, a day or two behind along with many of the syndicated outlets.

Pam - both are documentaries in which Bowie plays, well, himself. "Inspirations" is about the creative artistic process and is basically seven different artists talking about their approach to it. Bowie is one of the seven, and others include Roy Lichtenstein and dancer Louise LeCavalier. It's from 1997 or so. It was directed by Michael Apted (who also directed The World Is Not Enough, Gorilla In The Mist, Nell, Coalminer's Daughter, Gorky Park
Group Madness is a behind-the-scenes documentary about British comic Peter Cook (one of Bowie's faves). It dates from circa Serious Moonlight.
I don't know if either one is available on VHS or DVD (probably not).

Come to Daddy ofcourse ( for Britney Spears), by Aphex is louder and crazier then any Rammstein, oh and try Aphex's "Ventolin' of "I care Because You Do", its the sound of the highest pitched frequency mixed with insane confusing beats, it'll make her call the SWAT TEAM. Oh and try Diamanda Galas for a female singer, no one as insane as her.

Hey there fellow Bowie fans! Just wanted to anounce my presense to you all. I was wondering, although I think I know the answer, did anyone else love DB in his tights in Labyrinth??? Or I guess the question would be who didn't...I would like to get to know you all, so if you ever have spare time, just e-mail me, or post a message.

Does anyone have any idea what happened to the "Laughing Gnome" promotional film that was shown on Top of the Pops in 1973? There must be many thousands of people who, like me, remember seeing it; yet I've never ever seen it mentioned in any article or book - not even 'The Pitt Report.' Likewise, as far as I know it's never been shown anywhere on TV since TOTP 1973.

Lilith, you poor thing!! Rammstein works well in revenge - I can also recommend something like Dimmu Borgir, which is a bit scary as well as loud! *grin* Maybe you could go meet the girls that play Genie in a bottle and Britney Spears, and convert them to the following of Mr Bowie...? :-)

In the song, "Little Wonder," Bowie sings "Mars happy nation/sit on my karma/Dame Meditation/take me away." Some Bhutanese-Mahayana Buddhists wish to give complete happiness to all beings. The bodhisattva takes a vow: "I must lead all beings to liberation, I will stay here until the end, even for the sake of one living mortal." The bodhisattva can "transfer merits" to those who need karma. They understand that all beings in samsara--insects, devas, and other little wonders--are equal in that they all want happiness and do not want suffering.

Hi Evan, I guess that particular source, like DB himself, enjoys spreading "propaganda." It's all just good clean fun. They are obviously an intelligent bunch; great titles for songs nonetheless. Thanks for the dis-information alert. Any recent news on when DB will be finished with Contamination and why it has taken him 5 years to followup Outside? Take care...

Nevada, I presume you're referring to that tracklisting somebody sent me last March. Unfortunately, as I said, it should be taken with a mountain of salt. In fact, how about a whole ocean-full of salt because the source later admitted that they had absolutely *no* basis at all for this track listing (yes, they just made it up).

Now, on the other hand, there IS a Bar Visconti in Milan :)

And on the song, "Verona No More," also on the Contamination album, Bowie alludes to the time when Venice acquired Verona. In 1388 the Venetian Republic had allied herself with the Visconti family of Milan in order to dispossess Venice's long-time nemesis, the Carrara family from control of Padua--its base--and the adjacent territory of Verona. I wonder if "Tony Visconti" comes from this ancestral line?

In the song, "A Tribe from the Ghost Plains," from the Contamination album, Bowie alludes to the first contacts between plains indian tribes and pirates. Plagues of European contagion from pirates contact had killed huge numbers of Indians, destroying whole tribes and civilizations in the process. The religious revivalist movement known as the Ghost Dance spread through the Plains Indians. They believed the frenzied trance-inducing dancing would eliminate the whites and leave only the Indians and their ancestors.

In the song Little Wonder, Bowie sings "Intergalactic/See Me to be you/It's all in the tablets/Sneezy Bhutan." Bhutan, a land locked Mountain Kingdom bordered by Tibet, China, India, Nepal, and Bangladesh never got involved with the Industrial Age, the World Wars, nor the Arms Race. The inhabitants of Bhutan have kept to themselves for hundreds of years. Perhaps it is Bhutan's early history which is steeped in Buddhist tradition and mythology that spurred Bowie's interest. Though known as Bhutan to the outside world, to the Bhutanese, the country is known as Druk Yul, 'land of the Thunder Dragon'. I am sure Bowie has visited the massive fortress-monasteries that decorate most of Bhutan's hill-tops and valleys, and taken part in the religious festivals and the ritual mask dances open to both monks and laymen...

Since the late seventies, Bowie has been in-corporating the "multi-ethnic/multi-culture" stance (like garnish for an un-identifiable main course) in his videos. "Fashion" depicts sprawling/crawling and spasmodic asians, latinos, blacks... DJ, like so many of his videos, exploits the ever-present Black tie! The videos for BTWN and NLMD show traces of asian/latino angst scattered amongst the ever-present black tie. Blue Jean turns the lights on a multi-ethnic audience. Let's Dance exploits the plight of Australian Aboriginees tainted by White colonialism. China girl does an odd twist on the China Crisis. Loving the alien has a distinct Indian/Middle-Eastern flavor. Who is that woman in that video anyway? Day In/Day Out paints a picture of the Mean Latin Streets of the USA complete with hustling & homelessness. Nice post punk garnish. Time Will Crawl is wonderfully multi-colored and bi-sexual! Absolute Beginners again exploits the black connection. Ultimately, the multinational overtones seem hollow? No?

Borneo & Amlapura: In Tumble and Twirl, Bowie tells the tale of Leon and his nine daughters. Leon watches from the tree-tops in a land of tropical rain forests (destroyed by fires) and thick jungles (polluted by sewage). Indonesia again pops up in the song Amlapura: "The Princess in stone" is probably a reference to the Volcanic Mountains. What is Bowie's fascination with Hindu-Javanese culture anyway? Then of course, there is Cyprus, easily reached by boat from Greece, Egypt, Israel and other countries. Cyprus, is one of Bowie's favorite places. Of course, for a man who has traveled the world, a more extensive travel-log/journal he has not yet written. The album Lodger merely shows glimpses of Africa/Turkey/Russia etc... It would be nice if he did more than merely name-dropped the places he has traveled to...Brel's Amsterdam is an epic song. Where is Bowie's Epic Travel Song? Well, just "throwing up" ideas...

I had the great honor to personally meet and be with Bowie during the Warner Bro. Award Ceremony "Radio Blast". He'll remember me, I was the cute chubby one with her "mom". And the one standing, waving, screaming and dancing in the audience, when you performed! Being a die hard Bowie fan since I was 9. I will always remember my first view of Bowie on T.V. I grew up listening to every album, I was know in High School as Ms. Bowie. My comment is simply this, For the short time I was with Bowie, I saw a soft spoken, humble, incredibly intelligent human being. Our meeting changed my life. Because at that moment, I realized dreams do come true. Thank You for being as beautiful as I dreamed, and hella sexy!! Love and Peace. Josie

Rancell, on both hours and Earthling, Bowie's imagination moves in world of "fluctuating tatters..." Since Bowie is always manipulating purity/truth, disguising his body/face and "telling lies" about his past/present/future, we can expect the critics to "denounce," then "ignore" him as their first line of defense. But David has already removed himself from his "pure/true" self and intentionally fallen into shadowy/intermediary postures in which he is at once himself and not himself: "Shadow falls in shrinking smiles/see me poised at the happy games/standing in the mouth of all that's pure." All Purity comes by Purgation (tears & rain) which leaves behind it's tattered remnants: "Come straggling in your tattered remnants/you'll come to me in tears and rain." Whenever humans move to purify life by excluding the messy sides, the trickster upsets their plans: "Me I am fast like a bad infection/gasping for my resurrection." If anything, Bowie's art is "pure artifice," but it is never a DUD!

Stubbs, you are precious, don't stay away for long...Back to NLMD. Like Day In/Day Out, a tale of a street-walkers woe and Too Dizzy, a tale of domestic violence (really a jazzed-hype re-vamp of Repetition), '87 and Cry is a song that is truly "Just a Ghost of a Story." The lines "Torn apart in the UK/In the Dribble of May-Day" conjure up a mass exodus of refugees, perhaps, in exile, from their own country--driven out by the dogs of war: "It couldn't be done without dogs." Quite a few (half-done) songs on NLMD are about polarised communities--politically/culturally marginalized: "And there is no one in love/there is nowhere to scream." A theme Bowie does slightly better on White Noise. During the 87 May Day protests/rallies, anarchists/punks "made love with money," "made mistakes with babies." The Fashion Wars took precedence over issues of poverty/violence/classism: "Dressing down with the enemy," "Nothing looked good on you." DB's roughly sketched characters wore cool masks but "there was nothing inside!"

Rock crit God Robert Christgau in the new Village Voice doesn't bother to review "hours....", but at least he got around to evaluating it. It's listed in the "Duds" section at the end, along with stuff that, like "hours...." often received favorable reviews elsewhere, like the Beta Band, Dolly Parton, and Nine Inch Nails "The Fragile." For Christgau, this is an improvement: it took him a whole year to bother putting "Earthling" in the Duds column. All of those artists, BTW, did better than Bowie on the Voice poll of around 400 critics published in mid February. It seems that US critics--that is, the ones that didn't write the favorable reviews--almost thoroughly ignored the album. It came in at Number 180, with only five voters putting the album on their ballots. The Voice itself never reviewed it.
