Must have hit the nail on the head when i stirred up "SHAKY" & talking of getting a life, whats he doing on a Bowie site when hes an Elvis fan,he seems so obsessed with homosexuality,always mentioning it & cracking jokes about it.Could it be hes a clossit homo himself & is probing for a reaction to it before he comes out of the clossit.Never mind "SHAKY"im sure being a sausage jockey aint so bad & most people dont care anyway.

to be fair i am a big bowie fan and i have read all the wierd texts and comments that have appeard on this site over the past few days . i can see the funny side and have took them for what they are a few naughty words done by someone to evoke a response from people on this site. however ninty per cent of people on this site are going to dissapear up there own arses; the ones i am on about frown on the likes of cheeky monkey and the flem buff and think of them as pests who have no right to be on this site[when in fact its a bit light fun]and i bet you hang on every word likes of that total git says about kissing davids cheek its old but i felt comfartble what kind of arty farty bullshit is that; i can see you all now sitting around haveing discussions about what was really trying to be said through the medium of song, what a crock of shit rearrange these three words to make a well known saying,LIFE A GET .yes thats right get a life start by going out once a year to start with then build on it.try to go a whole day without analyzing a bowie song they mean nowt anyway put them into groups they fall into three catagorys ;one is homosexuality;two drug induced ;three pop money spinners to finance the first two ok simple now i solved this yous can all go out and get a start on those life things everone else has but stillput aside some time for david[earth oddity]bowie.

I am sorry to say, but I do not have a state currently- that is a joke for the observand dummies like me. By the way how does one get his ar her or its poetry to be viewed? Somehow there is no information concerning that aspect of the site. Or maybe I am just not looking hard enough??:)I like the site very much...I wonder if Bowie is ever going to age like a normal rockster would have done by now(think Harrison) but I do not think anybody minds that much.Keep it up everyone....It is one of the very good sites that I've been to.

Anybody know anything about bowies skills in martial arts,I heard that a famous body guard who worked for bowie in the 80,s "Richard Norten" trained him regular,bowie was to become quite competent.apparently punching the bag in between serious moonlight shows & as a kickboxing & vale tudo instructor myself i was quite interested if anyone knows anything.

I stand corrected. Thankyou Tommy. I meant to say "always eluded me," not "always alluded me." The "Ling" has no reference to or reverence for ME! I am very happily "lingless."

Perhaps the Flemist can answer this? The meaning of "Ling" in Earthling has always alluded me. My friend Tommy says it stands for "linguistic links and longings." Perhaps you can shed some light on this mystery. I myself think it is a reference to the "Linguini Incident." Happy New Year!

i am a bit of a flem buff and i know the value of most types to be honest the flem of a fifty five year old sausage jocky is worth about two pounds twenty and a small to medium sized turnip thats in good condition . another point i would like to raise is the rock icon awards how can anyone think that david[ive got mick jagger stuck to my botty]bowie is in the same group of artists as elvis jerry lee carl perkins all these people started the balls[oh pardon]rolling the beatles started to praise these artists as there heros david[bury me in a y shaped coffin]bowie is just a product of these artists and a bit of his own inititive thrown in i remember a story keith richards told once the stones were on stage waiting for mick but he did not show and he went to the dressing room only to find mick getting rogerd off david bowie keith went crazy and he chaced david down a big ally he lost david could not find him anywhere so keith screamed ;when i get hold of you i am going to shove my gutair right up your arse only to hear close by a voice say i,m in the bin yes you guessed it bowie in the wheely bin.one more point is the gig at newcastle was in a gay bar and david inspired violent clashes in the audience by encourageing men to wear red slacks with yellow shirts me and my friend gonky were the only two that looked normal but he had to go to casulty as he was hit on the head by a very large but plug we left after this saying to the crowd you know where you can stick your but plugs.

while watching Bowie in concert at a small venue in Newcastle in 1998,it was easy to find myself right at the front of the stage,halfway through "Heroes" Bowie (who had a cold judgeing by his voice)did a large sneeze,as I covered my face to stop the spray I noticed my friend Steve next to me had been hit,a long string of flem was clinging to his shirt collar.I quickly snatched it before he could & wrapped it in a hankie,on reaching home it went straight into a test tube with vinagar to pickle it.Now with Xmas being upon us I find myself short of cash & im now willing to sell it to the highest bidder.

For the past few months I've been away from any sort of computer - I'm now using the one at work that says "For HPB business only - that means you". And I've been told to discontinue my use.

The Wise Crack (Exegesis/Elucidation) is a Breakup/Breakdown of Un-Magical Elements. A Dis-Ruption of the Merely Functional. Very Unbecoming. This Toy is not at all ab-use-able, at your service--working. He will make you no money. This Toy is not your hack--not old hat/old news before he even begins. This Un-Becoming/Wise-Cracking Toy Breaks Through to Concealed Knowledge Not Certainty. The Breakthrough (A New Insight Into Un-Orthodox & Unpopular Wisdom) belongs to the Forgotten Toy. Bowie's Exegesis (A Ludic Elucidation) is an Ex-Ploding/Ex-Posing, Masterful Un-Masking of "Phantom Exposures." Happy Holidays!!!

Is David Bowie one of the key figure of 20th century rock music? Sure, many of his fan's will say YES! But let's think this guestion little bit deeper. What kind of artist is THE KEY FIGURE of rock? Someone who started the whole thing like Elvis Presley? Yes, his one the key figure. How about The Beatles? Sure, they are key figures too. Many will say, that Bob Dylan and Jimi hendrix are one of those rare key figures of 20th century rock music. Well how about David Bowie. Can we say, that he is also "the key figure"? I like his music very much, but i don't think that he is the same level in HISTORICAL point of wiew as those others. This does not means, that Bowie is no good or his records are poor.He is great and his fans will always love him, but to honest, he is not the key figure of rock history. He's the one the key figure of 70's rock music, but the history was made in 50's and 60's and all what comes after that, will not get the same status as those "early pioneers of rock". They were the real giant of rock.

TOY is a Substitute for the Human. Sub-Ordinate. Toy retires into Shadow, becomes a Superfluity. Toy is the Mingled Yarn and the Inborn Proof of Absence. Desires Afterglow in a Swarm of Banishings/Vanishings. The Contrived Story. The Kindred Surrogate. Toy's Prime Constituent is "NON ESSE--THE UNDESTROYED." Thing of Naught--always virtual. But what about the Man of Straw who gains a soul? Shallow Man who speaks to the Shadows? Hell's Litter. The Labyrinth's Twistings. The Dis-Entangled Lie. The Wisest Crack. Dust and Sham and the Shaman's Shameless Un-Becoming. Miracle/Wonder/Monster. Pretty Hellish Thing. Puppet-Urchin. Dwarf-Changeling. Harlequin-Chameleon. Genie In A Capsule. All these Potential In-Carnations. Layers of the Story Unfolding: "Never know the Real Story." "Just a Ghost of a Story." Mangled Story: "This Chaos is killing me." An Iron Lion and the Dummy Johnny. Toy Coverings: "Re-Wrapping Mink and Shiny Silver Fox."

In tomorrow's New York Times, the four pop music writers pick their top 10s of 2000. D'Angelo is the big winner, on every list. U2 and OutKast get multiple mentions too. Neil Strauss's No. 10 pick is Deltron 3030's self-titled release on the 75 Arc label, about which he writes: "Picking up where Kool Keith's futuristic Dr. Octagon persona and Prince Paul's rap opera left off, 'Deltron 3030' is the hip hop equivalent of David Bowie's 'Diamond Dogs,' executed by the hip-hop equivalent of a power trio: a visionary producer (the Automate), a powerful rapper (Del tha Funkee Honosapien) and a nimble turntabilist (Kid Koala)."

"Where all were minds in uni-thought." "Powers Weird by mystics taught." "No pain, no joy, no power too great." "Colossal strength to grasp a fate." "Where sad-eyed mermen tossed in slumbers." This is Dream-Reality. Triton, a merman symbolized the invincible power of nature that changes and gets perpetually reborn. He had the power to take any form he wished. When the gods sent a giant flood to punish mankind Triton ordered the waters to retreat by blowing on his conche shell, thus he is remembered as the trumpeter of the gods. Magical Toys like Sea Gods also change their appearance to elude capture. We humans lay waste our powers by turning everything into a commodity (getting and spending). Nature is not a toy. This destruction will not stop as a result of any act by humankind. The change will come only in the form of a mighty revolt by nature. Triton, the merman rises from the sea, faces the injustices inflicted on nature, and places the cylce of life back in balance. Our consumption of toys ends!

The Toys that you shake off as dewdrops from the lion's mane--You dis-prize them! Do not word-fence/tongue fence with toy-logic. The Toy is a quiddity, the art of "fallacy." Your arguments "fall" to the ground. "There is only one way to fall--into a lack of conclusions." The Charlatan's toy--the varnished tale, the exploded notion. Bauble born in a bubble. One must learn to go astray! The gnomic jester will make you his laughingstock, his lad insane. "Man is an obstacle--sad as the clown." A foolish toy in the wiseman's crown? The Toy Tale is a Tale told by an Idiot. A word to the wise: It's truths "lie" on the surface. Trash and Truism and lucid pun. Who is the puppet's latent influence? It's string puller? Is that another story? Thereby hangs a tale. The stale-tale bearer and the liar re-tell the truth. Listen carefully to the elegant fool! His imperfect speech is a prose run mad, a toy-machination of the devil--right out of Pandora's box. Watch for Triton among the minnows. Toy's rebirth in mortar!

Terms Of Endearment: Made Into a Toy/Pawn. Bought in the Cheapest Market And Sold in the Dearest. This Un-Regarded Possession Cast Out into Oblivion is a Scarce Thing, an Un-Matched Rarity. The Toy-Keeper barters his Wares and his Affections. The Dis-Counted Toy exchanged for Another. From Treasured Toy to Graven Image. The Conjuror's Relics. The Lord's Minions. Prey and Plunder. Love's Parings. The Toy Trade: Go Fly a Kite! Borrow and Barter the mass-produced Souvenir! Affected enthusiasm for a worthless gem. This fad soon forgotten.

The Toy (Old Story)is an Ancient Object of Ancient Wisdom. More than a mere keepsake/memento. Something that is one of a kind/one in a thousand. Not a novelty or a new-fangled idea. Not Old News. Not a flash in the pan. But an Old Story. A Tale that moves far beyond Re-tail (marked down merchandise consigned to oblivion). The Toy/Tale is not about a petty line of goods. It is about Deep Memory--the Recollector's Item. Toy recalls ancient fables and myths of love and fate. Once you cross the borders of Toyland, you can never return again!

But the new Entertainment Weekly roundup of live collections for the holiday doesn't mention the Beeb, probably because it's old music. Yesterday's NY Daily News roundup of megastars now and in recent years playing club shows to spark interest didn't mention Bowie either, probably because he opted for that route four years ago, which may not be recent enough. So maybe that's another trend he started. Or maybe the club was the entire extent of the interest? ;-)

The New York Times finally got around to reviewing the Beeb set today, in a holiday roundup of box sets not previously reviewed. Bowie comes up first, among many household names and worthy (and probably not-so-worthy) box setters, thanks to the miracle of alphabetizing. He's one of three artists pictured in the Internet version of lengthy review at www.nytimes.com, which requires registration. Here's what Ann Powers wrote: "DAVID BOWIE: `BOWIE AT THE BEEB' (Virgin 28958, three CD's, $26.97). Given the terrifyingly well-preserved, techno-savvy fashion plate David Bowie has become, it's sometimes hard to remember just how silly he once was. These recordings for British radio recall his days as a flouncing rosebud with music-hall dreams and Dylanesque ambitions. It also shows what happened to intensify Mr. Bowie's airs until they released a curious potency all their own. Or rather, who happened: the guitarist Mick Ronson enters dropping a Jimi Hendrix quotation halfway through Disc 1, and Mr. Bowie suddenly becomes a fighter, not a pixie. The set's second disc captures the rise of Mr. Bowie as rock's fiercest androgyne, with another inspiration figuring prominently. He learned from the Velvet Underground, its music liberally covered here, how to mix in some grit with his glitter, and his legend was sealed. This collection's third disc presents that myth in its entirety, via a BBC Radio Theater concert from June."

All this shmaltz and verbal diarrhoea being spouted at the moment about John Lennon has proved one thing.He was right all along when he said "they (the beatles) have more followers than Jesus Christ".It looks like they will still be talking about him in 2000 years time, hanging on to his every bitty little word. Which will also prove how stupid and gullible the human race is and why rock stars treat their fans with such contempt.This guy sings "imagine no possessions" so all those airheaded hippees gave everything they owned away while dear ole Yoko had an air conditioned apartment JUST for her fur coats. He was a ' working class hero' because that was where the money was, not because he was blue collar, because he was not. Rock music in the fifties, sixties and seventies was sung and owned by the middle classes, although they never listened to it themselves, they thought it was disposable junk music. Even David Bowie has been quoted in the sixties as saying "most of it is trash". I dont think even John Lennon himself could have 'imagined' that his 'disposable trash music' today is held with such reverence, and perhaps says something of today's lack of human spirit.

Never heard Bowie do "Imagine" before. Perfectly over the top, made me appropriately misty-eyed. One Love.

One of the definitions of TOY is an OLD STORY. Love is the old story, old news. The Toy is the lover and the "lover" is as old as time. Another definition of TOY is a silly tale. Perhaps the twice told tale? Love deserves repeating. The TOY may be old hat but he is also an old chum. Not to be treated as a petty commodity. TOY/AMATEUR/LOVER. Ancient Wisdom and Youthful Folly. The TOY is almost a cliche. A common but grand truth!

We've got a Green TD (MP) here too, and have had for over 10 years. And Mattie - I don't want to get you too excited, but from what I hear John Farnham's forthcoming "Anthol...anthilo...alcoholo....bloody great collection of early stuff" collection has the original 22 minute version of Sadie The Cleaning Lady, which rumour has it features the legendary Rolf Harris on didgeridoo.

Looking at ART-I-FACTS from primitive cultures, it can be difficult to determine whether a particular figure was meant to be a TOY or a religious image. Among the Hopi Indians, for instance, kachina dolls representing the "spirits of earth and sky" are given to children to play with after the religious ceremonies are over. Similarly, if a barren woman of the Atutu tribe of Africa goes to a magician for help in CONCEIVING a child, she is given a toy-doll, which she treats just as she would a HUMAN CHILD. If the magic doesn't work & the woman loses hope, she often passes on the now non-magical toy-doll to a child of her tribe!

In Memoriam: JohnO of Cleveland: I know some of the old timers here will remember JohnO from Cleveland, also known as Big Brother. John was the quintessential Bowie fan who collected items, contributed scans and comments to Teenage Wildlife and travelled thousands of miles to attend Bowie concerts through the years etc. JohnO died on October 31 of natural causes, aged 45. Visit today's news item for more details.

May you rest in peace, JohnO

Hi! I think the lyrics of Future Legend and Diamond Dogs have been mixed up... "This ain't Rock 'n Roll- this is Genocide." is the last part of Future Legend and not the beginning of Diamond Dogs according to the lyrics Bowie signed on my album. Am I right, or am I right? :)

So sorry J.O. - I didn't realise only US related topics were allowed on this GB - and for those of you who say actually it's only BOWIE related - I don't think the US elections were !!! Not that I'm complaining you understand - I actually found it all very interesting (me being so sadly into politics as I am !!) I'm sure you've heard of St Patricks day J.O. - well St Andrew is the Scottish version !
