Thank you for visiting Teenage Wildlife. Here are some previous user's comments.

About the picture of yesterday on TW Main Menu : John, I'm Only dancing, Noticed onthis song its African Black vocals, oriental style, soul music. In Changes II and Sound and Vision I, so different, with the "white light" of Ziggy, solo singer and solo guitare electro-accoustique "Lost my fear, Dance with it, you got black light... Add : Heard this morning Gorbatchev on radio programm, speaking about dangers of destroying the Nature in the world : I remember Never let me down Tour, 1987, David, beautiful as an angel in his suit, nearly flying above the stage, sang Time will crawl, and Tchernobyl is such a disaster, he said in the lyrics of this song. Gorbatchev said too : hope peace on world one day (in Russian, peace and world = the same word, "mir", I was said) and Davy is a kind peaceful Star in the sky of Rock World.

Hi ! I add : Radio said this morning telephone boxes are to be given up in England soon, because of the hand-phones being mainly used : happily, we have the unforgettable picture of David-Ziggy with his nice Ziggy-suit in a telephone-box on the cover of The rise and the fall of Ziggy Stardust (with the Spiders of Mars) !

I went to the Carnegie Hall box office on Saturday(1/27). The only seats left were $35 balcony seats. I asked if there were any $80 seats left and the guy told me there were only single seats left for $80. I didn't get tickets because for 160 dollars I did not want to sit away from my husband. I didn't get the cheaper $35 seats because they are too high up. I am somewhat disappointed!

I can't believe my eyes : Did the singer of "Andy Warhol team", Lou Reed really send to you a comment on Sunday, yesterday, to say Time is the best song of David ? (as it is written in the guestbook or someone else ?). I quite agree if it is really Lou, of the Factory and of the magic song of Satellite of Love (Transformer album ?).

Why is Bowienet claiming the Tibet House show is sold out? Very odd. It's not really even that close. It likely will be, as there's been a decent amount of publicity, but no advertising as yet. And those downstairs seats, still on sale, are quite expensive.

Anybody floating around from Calgary area who can recommend me some good Bowie collectable shops there? I should be there the weekend after next for a couple of days on my way to the ski hills for a well earned holiday. I used to live near Invermere so I have a fair idea of getting around the town. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks :-)

ABC is using "Heroes" as the theme behind its college basketball promos. The real one, not a cover version. Shown during the inauguration coverage Saturday. And, not 48 hours into his term, and compassionate conservatism rears its head by sticking it to Third World planning clinics in a symbolic show of support for the people protesting right now on the Mall against abortion. Most of whom, BTW, are men. The 80s really have returned.

Anybody know the story behind that amazing footage shown on VH-1 last night when they got to No. 47 in the countdown of the top 100 albums? Ziggy at 48 was the same old same old, but I'd never seen the two clips for Hunky Dory. I assume they were from the BBC. Are they the clips at that bowieathebeeb site that I can never get to work? Great stuff, too short.

Last add of the 18th January 2001 : I found again the Bowie brief in TW about Ben Stein reciting Fame (Brief from Dana). Nice idea from Ben Stein to open a celebrity show with Bowie-philism ! I just see the photo for the paper about db illustrated discography : I felt, as I said previously, the contains of politically correct but the photo is weird...

I said in my first comment of the day that Fame was beautiful : I made a mistake because I was thinking to my dinner ! I was writing two lines from Fashion which I like a lot. Fa, Fa, Fashion is not the same as Fame, Fame, Fame, Fame deeper and sounding more dramatic. Sorry for this error. Have a nice day.

Hi ! To explore Teenage Wildlife is really a like a nice walk in the garden of David Bowie's music, his gentle way of flowering the World of Rock Music with his albums is exquisite and this perfumes our iced days of winter like an English pot-pourri of his natural perfect balance. To-day, the News of TW speak about Fame : this song (of Young Americans ?) is so beautiful "Turn to the right, turn to the left..." and David Bowie, even singing "Changes" 1-2, stays the same and is always faithful.

Hi ! I don't think Davy was right to quit The Charity Child Association with Pavarotti : does it matter some lies upon money if the idea is good ? Your home page is interesting and pretty. The cabaret in London about Davy's young life is a good idea, the ticket rather cheap. Weather is sunny this morning in Paris, France and just now, a white bird is flying along the river Seine...

Bright day in Paris, XIIIe, to-day beside the Seine and with a glance to Teenage Wildlife-Net Main Menu : even so clear that I sent a mail to Bowie Art : will it arrive ? Post is so old-fashioned to-day that it is difficult to believe a letter can join Davy. Golden years was a hit of Him, and Golden age is a dream of all, Station to Station album's rythm is so quick that we, the fans of David Bowie, will probably arrive to Paradise of Bowieland with the 3rd Millenium after the blue and white "backstage" of Hours, so slow and iced. Ever so "sex", Davy, for the boys and the girl I am in France, with souvenirs of Russia, fragile, loving Beauty and sun shining this morning on Paris like a symbol of success upon sad thoughts !

Peter Frampton's playing at the new BB King Blues Club in Times Square next week, and does a Q&A interview with Dan Aquilante in the NY Post today. Aquilante notes in his intro that Frampton did sideman work for Bowie, Ringo and George Harrison. Frampton singles out Bowie with a real nice statement to conclude the interview: "Post: That said, are you happy when you aren't the center of the band? Frampton: Of course, especially when I'm playing guitar for someone I really respect - Bowie, for instance. I love playing guitar with fantastic musicians. They challenge me, they push me. They still bring out the best in me." You'll find it here: http://www.nypost.com/entertainment/21076.htm. No Bowie content in Peter Vescey's NBA column in the same paper, but a real weird one: Sixer and soon-to-be-rapper Allen Iverson dedicated a game to Melissa Etheridge, and said she is his favorite performer. Maybe incongruity runs in the city: I remember seeing the Eagles owner and a couple of players at one of Bowie's Electric Factory shows in 1997.

Good news to know Bowie works for Tibet and is surely interested in Buddhism : without Zen, how would he bear his crazy fans ? Happily, he does not look like a buddhist monk : his hair, like a lion's in Pepsi clip with Tina Turner, is great !!!!

God I hate my life. I do, and then a friend of mine thought it would be so "funny" to say that three days after my birthday David Bowie was going to be going to Jacksonville Florida for a concert. I about cried when I found out he wasn't. I'm almost 16, about 10 days off, and I have never seen David B..... UGH! I've seen Slipknot for gods sake! I would even get on an airplane to see David. He is my idol. He is so sexy and goodlooking and he's such a great singer and such a great actor, i absoloutly love the cd's i have. I have 8, i can't really afford to buy anymore, but i ADORE the one's i have...through my stages (drugs, no drugs, older guys, no guys, friends, no friends, its like, i ALWAYS Came home to David's music) I can't explain it, not even to my mother, but he just, he makes me want to be a better person, to be all i can? I sound like a psychopath... anyways, PLEASE! SOMEONE email me?!? I think it totally sucks that I was born when I was when if I were born years earlier I could have seen him live. Someone email me.

Major--You are the Happiest/Hippest Hazzard I know. The Toy is such a Vulgar Banality. Same Old Thing in Brand New Drag. The Truth Born of Error. Neither wholly True nor False. The Shaman's Sham pulled out of the Magician's Old Hat! Reality born of the Dream. Dream-Reality and It's Lack of Conclusions--Oh My! The Toy Economy Itself is full of Truisms, Platitudes, Cliches. Of Course, Some are never Bored so they never Grow Old! The Toy resides in the eternally Un-Dying and Un-Becoming Imagination. "Memory is a Swinging Door." "I Forgot what (they) said." "You've got to have a Scheme in the World of Today." Phantoms of the Imagination give birth to the Real Thing. The Ghost in the Machine. Spirit Animating Flesh. The Other-Worldly Firing Up the Earthling! The Birth of the Zero--now that the Hero has been Obliterated. A Noble Savage/A Noble Sacrifice. An Old Joke--A Dummy living in America. And God never laughs at his jokes! Major--You have got to believe that the Toy is the Real McCoy!

The banality of large white underpants has made heroes of whoever wears them.Cheaply made to a simple design they ensure a continuity to human life, something you can depend on, and a link with your past, knowing your parents wore them and their parents before them (not necessarily the same ones). You cant use toys during a war, you need a design classic, something you can depend on.I never allowed soldiers in my command to wear skimpy panties, (even when some of them wanted to).They were issued 'Thunder Thighs' brand mohair underpants. These kept my men regimented and regulated. When the enemy started playing with toys and ' toying around' I knew they were finished. As a clock, all their cogs were going in different directions, their toys had brought out the individual.thats it Bye bye , the wifes told me to quit.

I agree NK about the Banality part. Bowie uses the unfashionable to his advantage. Arnold Corns, for instance or Corny Arnold. The Nerd in the Jazzin for Blue Jean Video. By playing the role of the Vulgar Simpleton/the Shallow Man Bowie ex-poses what in under his Old Hat. Something Cheap and Un-Original--Glitter! Bowie abuses the language by employing tacky cliches in the song Thursday's Child. You have got to love him for this! He has made an Art Form of Vulgar Banality! From the Song Shake It--Where there's smoke there's fire! Bring on the Cheap Things!

Toying is the Satirical Quality Present in an Extravagant Gesture, Style, or Form, Especially when INAPPROPRIATE, or "Out Of Proportion" to the Content that is Expressed. Toying is also the DE-LIGHT in ART-I-FICIALITY, Exaggeration, and Affectation Especially when used in Con-Junction with Vulgar Banality and Outlandish Trivia! The Toyish Ex-Poseur or Silly Boy Blue has to wait to die--the ultimate in Vulgar Banality! Among other things, Toying (a very Spiritual State of Mind) often Exaggerates Dominant Inventions to the Point where they are Ex-Posed as Inventions instead of "Natural," "Proper," or "Inevitable." For Example, Does anyone really believe M&M will win "Best Album of the Year" at the Grammys? How Toyish! TOY Questions the Very Notion of a Self-Identical Original and Derivative Copy! Toy--The "UPDATE" (as the ever vulgar/banal DB, who could show up anywhere, describes it) for which there is no "Original," will be out in March! I Can't Wait!

I want to, but am a little nervous and cautious since they said (on the service agreement) that they are not like a typical company and only serve to advertise others' items.

And thanks to Evan for pointing out that you can walk up to the box office and buy tickets. So far, I haven't seen anything about show in the three NYC dailies. Maybe an ad will run this weekend. It's exciting to see that Bowie appears to be planning to perform with Moby and Glass. I hope he doesn't miss the opportunity to sing with Emmylou Harris, who supposedly has sang harmony vocals on more recordings than anyone else, ever. She and Bowie both sang together, sorta, lines on the "Perfect Day" BBC single in 1997. Harris is a great performer and every bit as iconoclastic as Bowie, moreso in the 90s. I hope he realizes that. Bowie, Harris, Moby and most surprising of all, Patti, were nominated for Grammys this week.

The Carnegie charge number is 212-247-7800, good seats were available within the past hour. This one ain't a rumor folks, it's confirmed. Two of the greatest rock-era women performers will be there as well, Emmylou Harris and Patti Smith. And Space Oddity-coverer Natalie Merchant.

Rancell, I agree BTWN is an overlooked Jazz Masterpiece, certainly not a failed experiment. I hope to see DB mentioned on the PBS Jazz special! They are right who say that the toy is hounded to the ends of the earth. All that we have is the mass-produced toy, only it remains to us: and this we have so hackneyed, so abused, and so debased, that the poor, tired thing is ashamed of it's own name and is disgusted with other toys. He heartily loathes and despises himself. Shorn of all honour and dignity he sneaks begging from house to house, shamefully lugging a patchwork sack in which it keeps what it can grab or steal. Soon the toy is hawking it in the streets! For shame! It is we who are the cause of this traffic. We do such things to him and yet protest our innocence. The Toy, heart of all hearts, the noble, the incomparable, is for sale in the open market!

Perhaps the Toy embodies Rejection/Ejection? Eventually you must get rid of it, throw it away! Toys come from the Fantastic Abyss. And in the end that's where they return! Toying Around: It's a Zero-Sum Game! All or Nothing! In Love, Nevada, you are damned if you do and damned if you don't. We are all Love's Toys! I'll send you my used "love toys." Happy (F)Arting, A.

Flatulence - I inhale deeply. Toy aroma, aromatic. Aroused. The Seven Muses, spent from bean soup. Affixed to the Cross or te colon...Little wonder, you little wonder, you. Bowie as the Urp-God, carnal, knowing, masticating, dyspepsia. Ziggy2002, so close now, and yet so far(t).

For Christmas I got a big silver book called 'Bowiestyle', (with a few pictures in it I'd never seen before), and an Aladdin Sane t-shirt. (Available now at your local trendy shop). Yay. The other night, I had another David dream too. (If any of you people of old recall I used to talk about my David dreams all the time in here). This one went like this: I was at an hostel in London, and David was staying there. (why?) We became pals, and I ran around looking for my camera for days hoping to get him to pose for me. But nope. Didn't happen. After I got back home, a package was on my doorstep - it was from David. He made me a cd-rom thanking me for not asking him for his picture. How bizarre. LOVE-ON YA!

Of course, getting it right doesn't hurt either. Bowie buddies Nine Inch Nails was nominated in the same category, for "Into the Void." Apologies. Also, Bowie received great reviews for his single-cut cover contribution from way back when on another nominated album, the soundtrack to "Almost Famous," nominated against very tough competition (Aimee Mann/Magnolia; Sopranos; Fantasia; High Fidelity) in the Compilation Soundtrack Album for a Motion Picture, Television or other Visual Media category. No chance for that one, IMHO. The Dylan song I noted below also is nominated in the "Song Written for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media" category, which possibly could split the votes.

Ooh, we're slipping. Bowienet's got it: Bowie got nominated for a Grammy: Best Male Rock Vocal Performance. The nominees: Thursday's Child, David Bowie, Hours... [Virgin Records America]; Things Have Changed, Bob Dylan, Wonder Boys - Music From The Motion Picture (Various Artists) Columbia/Sony Music Soundtrax]; Workin' It, Don Henley, Inside Job [Warner Bros. Records]; Again, Lenny Kravitz, Greatest Hits [Virgin Records America]. Dylan wins again, I'd say, though because the Grammys love popular, I think Lenny got a chance. Don Henley got a bunch of nominations for IJ, which about puts the whole deal in perspective.

It's sort of unfair to group the Who cover with the latter two songs in that so far as I know, the former has not yet had a release date set. Once Skylife was rejected/removed from the soundtrack, there was never a public subsequent plan for it (again so far as I know), and it obviously didn't make the sequel soundtrack last fall. As to Mother, that one was supposed to be out this past fall on a tribute to coincide with Lennon's 60th birthday. But for whatever reason, Yoko Ono, who is executive producer/project director, decided not to go forward right now. I don't know why, but I've got a guess: The new Beatles double CD is just about to pass 20 million sold and making a run on Thriller and the Eagles' Greatest Hits as the bestselling album ever, and on the heels of the bestselling, $60 list book by the surviving Beatles. I think Yoko realized that, with the release of the real thing, remastered, the tribute record would have been ignored. Except, maybe, by us.

Nevada, Toying is Deference! The Toy is Intended and Adopted to Gain Favor. Toying is also Differentiation! The Toy is the "Preconceived Notion," "The Fixed Idea," "The Foregone Conclusion." A Kind of Catch 22. A Vacuity and A Vacancy. The Toy is a No-Win Situation. The Bribe, the Sweetener, this Toy Interlude is merely a Fad, a Quirk, the Fool's Errand/Error. The Toy is the "Difference" Between "This" and "That." Hence merely the Quantity Returned--a Poor Return at that. The Toy is What is Laying In Store--Delayed, Deposited, Reserved Stock In Trade. The Remainder Recollected. Held Back. Love's Treasury. Love's Armory yielding misconceived rewards and odd compensations. The Toy is a Peace Offering in the War of Love. A Fair Field but No Favor! That's the Hitch!

Is Delay just wasting my time? Toy=Amorous Delay. De-Lay--To Lay Down. Are Toys the Mind's Off-Scourings? Concrete Dreams in the Mind's Eye? Perhaps the Toy is Trash, Junk from the Scumhole--made from scrap iron, rags, bones, husks, tattered remnants? Rings of flesh, Towers of Iron? Is the Architect a builder of toys? The Architect's Dalliance--to make use of this Starving Life. To find Value in the Vanity of Discarded Jobs and Throwaway Babies--of Put Down Toys. The Toys is an Un-Collectible. Broken/Busted. Left at the Crossroads. Lost in the Fallen Leaves. Space-Boy is Sleepy Now--In Suspended Animation. Laying down on the job, time hanging on his hands. Life as Delayed Action, Stands still and Stares. The "Grace" Period is Over! It's too late to be grateful. Nothings too slow in this endless Moratorium, this Sea of Sham. The Time-Killer (It's Always Time) thrives on Inertia. In his Idleness, his plays with Toys on the rocks and sand. Delay & Dalliance of Toys--What a Wonderful Wasting of TIME!

If this has gone up elsewhere, sorry, I haven't had a chance to check CP or Bowienet. But if you haven't ... you can check out online at the www.nytimes.com the wonderful Metro section news cover story from last Saturday on Chico O'Farrill for its Bowie reference. But you won't get the prominent chart that appeared on the cover of the real copy of the section that listed the great Afro-Cuban jazz conductor's essential recordings, chronologically, noting bottom along with Count Basie and Benny Goodman, the BTWN album. The chart even mentioned both BTWN issuing labels for buying reference. Unrelated to the boring droning he did about his art creation and inspiration that went on in the BTWN vid, Bowie has a real story to tell about how that perplexing album came together. And his views in retrospect. I would really like to know what Bowie thought last Saturday morning, snowed in, with the paper facing him at his breakfast table and his name prominently displayed on the cover of a section in such a context. I'd like to hear Bowie's reminiscences on how legendary talents like O'Farrill (I'd consider myself a Bowie hardcore, obviously, but I hadn't delved deep enough into the credits to discover his participation until about two years ago), Ronson and L. Bowie came together and made BTWN. I mean, that roster made the celebrated Outside studio band look like a Holiday Inn lounge act, no offense there, Erdal. I'd like to know what reasons Bowie--who rightly should be very proud of BTWN--has for why the project didn't work. My guess is that if he could do it again, he'd drop a cover or two and a couple of other cuts, shorten the thing, and rework a lot of the vocals to make them understated, rather than overwrought. But who knows? Only Bowie. No question: BTWN for me is Bowie's most perplexing moment, a magnificent failure. Thoughts? The Birdland shows will be packed as a result of the article at least for the near term, but if you ever get a chance to see the 79-year-old O'Farrill's big band, go.

Kelmar. By the time she was your age, my Ma had bred six children. None of this 'ER' screaming trash "I'm having a baby,let me tell everyone about the pain, I need gas and six doctors". Women were women in those days, have the baby then straight out into the fields to pick cotton and dig the turnips for the soup. Young women would always ask my Ma what her secret was. She would say " BIG! underpants" (this would protect the baby if she went into labor in a field and hadnt quite finished her work) and plenty of improvised toys made with what you had (pimpled carrots too acrid for the stew, for example). You can see now why most of the Outside generation are mad, they all have screaming mothers.

Nevada, Heres the Information you requested: Toy is An Amorous Delay. Love's Suspension. The Heart's Hesitation. Indecisive Desire & Faltering Passion--Fear, Anxiety and Doubt in the Game of Love. Toying also implies deliberately Putting Someone Off, Holding Back allegiance, Postponing Lifetime Committment. To Defer (Ingratiating Ingratitude/Curt Courtesy) is to place the TOY later in order of Preference or Importance. To hold the love object in an undetermined or undecided state in case someone better comes along. The One who Toys with differs (changes from one instance to another) greatly from the one Toyed with. More Difference than Deference. More Incompatibility than Respect. "Thanks for Hesitating--this is the Kiss-Off!" "We stumble and fall--uncertain we fall." "I'm afraid you'll find someone in whom you'll confide." "If there was only something between us." "A little bit afraid of you cause love won't make you cry."

Hi KelMar, I couldn't get on BowieWonderWorld at the Library, so I thought I'd leave a message for you here at TW. I no longer have email--my AltaVista Free Access Expired/Went out of Business! Anyway, thankyou for offering to get me a Poo Pig but I actually have two poo pigs in the form of a Chihuahua and a Pit Bull. The Chihuahua dominates the Bull--It's a scene! Anyway I'm up to my (X) in poo. The relationship between humans and their toys is as old as our history. We see ourselves, at one and the same time, as Creators of toys and as Toys of our Creations. For that reason I can say, with a modicum of certainty, that as long as there are people, there will be TOYS. The relationship, however, may be broken. Born of the human Imagination, Toys will disappear if imagination dies or is corrupted. If human beings forget the TOY they will forget themselves! Long live Poo Pigs!
