Teenage Wildlife Guestbook February 2001

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

I was so sad you weren't there, Ramsey. And I know Shai was sad, too. He was only here in W. Trenton for a night so we didn't have time to get down to Philly to see everyone. :-( I think Mr. Bowie needs to do another big tour so we can all rally together again! :-)

EmmyLou Harris' band is on crack?! Whoa... ;) Rancell, all jokes aside I was looking for the alternative view and you came thru with flying colors! So Moby isn't a lead axe-man? I'm sure Slash will sleep better at night now. Patti- if nothing else it looks like Roxy is doing dates in Philly, DC and NYC this summer. Even if Bowie decides against a "Toy Tour," I smell a party in that mix somewhere! Yee Haw!

aw kali...you make me blush! :8-) as for the show...i loved all of it except for ali khan (who i have been calling ramalamadingdong). another few minutes of him and i would have had to kill him. oh well, can't love it all. david looked FABULOUS and sounded even better!! (is that possible??) it was so wonderful seeing everyone that went but those who were not in attendance were sorely missed. hope to see you all sometime over the summer?!?!?!?!

OK: the fact that EL Harris used Dave Matthews' presence to do a Red Dirt Girl song that had been absent from her tour (Matthews sang the same part on the record) was a good use of the Carnegie opportunity. Ditto for Bowie later on, with the obviously thrilled string section and the monks. But Harris didn't have her crack band, and the three RDG songs were too simliar. Bowie, appearing in full-rock star deity mode, didn't have a real guitarist. We won't be seeing Moby lead the band again very soon. But Harris's voice carried her, and for Bowie, his awesome (overblown?) presence and voice was also augmented not only by the great sounding strings but also the incredible Visconti and Campbell, who outdueled Smith's magnificent Dougherty. Everything said about Ali Khan is true. Amazing. I thought it was fitting that right after Moby intro'd Bowie as the greatest musician of the 20th century, that Smith invoked Louis Armstrong. What do you mean by dissertation? :-)

Overall it was a really fun event. As a devoted Bowie fan, it was Patti Smith's evening by a mile. She worked her ass off as she always does. During the finale, Lenny Kaye was looking up and out at the audience and beaming and saying "Wow!" But we were more awed than he was.

LOLs KMSV. I was reading your post yesterday, and my computer went down, and it turned out that a Verizon employee had literally severed the line downstairs. In the process of installing a phone to an apartment upstairs. Full service will be restored next week. Who needs a phone line? So, yeah, living in NY is great 'cause Bowie plays here, but there are other inconveniences, to say the least. Dissertation? That proves it, KMSV: I've said too much already. As the power went out, I was enjoying reading everyone else's comments. The Times, the Daily News and the Post all review the show today, all available on their respective sites, and all three get 'em more or less right.

Hallo space boys and gals. I'm loving the alien and have been for a long time (although I'm only 20) I'm an undergrad at Uni and am researching a project titled "To what extent has Wiliam S Burroughs (Naked Lunch etc) influenced Bowie's music?" Any ideas or info please contact me as I am very interested in both men.

Bad luck for me to-day : no chance to get this evening to Carnegie Concert for Tibet. No problem of money, of course : such a great topic to support Buddhism, its love of peace in Tibet and the beautiful soul of our David, with all Oriental wise Gods (of China he loves, India I love, Egypt we must love because the Egypt is so near the Death Kingdom with its ancient civilization, even now with the Sun rising on Egyptian country, rising on Far Eastern countries too : Buddhist Japan and Mahatma Gandhi's peace memory of India). No problem of money nor ticket ! But greater love of a quiet feeling of far union between David' soul and mine, my mind carrying the best thoughts of hope of success for this concert from my office table in Paris, France.

The web addresses are www.q4music.com and www.mojo4music.com and if you search for Kate Bush you will find lots of info on the band from album listings to reviews and news stories./ Go and check it out!

The Toy, of course, alludes to the "Enigma of Two," an occult doctrine that can only be read when "one" is "between" Dimensions! There one can take the Shadow for the Substance and Play at Cross Purposes! The Toy after all is all about Word Play! We must set too high a Value upon it! Make much ado about it! The Make-Shifting Toy is all about Mutability! This is the reason why "he who toys with" is so double-minded, so half-hearted in the Game of Love! The Player takes his love a touch too far. He took it all TOO FAR--FAR FAR AWAY! Remember the Toy is about translocation/remotion! Being in two places at once! The Form and the Formless. The Spirit Made Flesh!

Flight and Captivity in the HUMAN ZOO--The Impermanent TOYS of Peace & War: Toy from the roots two/tow alludes to a DOUBLE/MUTUAL CHANGE. The Toy gives as much as it takes. The Toy gives as good as it gets. The plaything and it's player (Mutatis Mutandis) are TOO/TWO EX-CHANGING! Tit for Tat, Blow for Blow, Give and Take, Quid pro Quo. The Toy is a GAME at which TWO can Play!!! And Vice Versa! All is Fair in Love and War!

My dad was one of the young David Jones's friends in Beckenham in the sixties. When Dave became interested in music as a career at the beginning, he gave him some great advice, "You won't be able to make a living out of that music, get yourself a proper career!". One day many decades later when my own band were recording in my bedroom, he came upstairs to give us too some great advice, "I think you're really good, you'll probably be a great success". We split up the next week, no hope anymore. Nevertheless we were brilliant.

Papa would drive his ice cream van late at night just to make up for the days he was ill mixing the ice cream.He would trawl the streets with his chimes ringing loudly. He would the see the effects of alcohol, he would go up to the men fighting and offer to push an ice cream cornet in their face rather than a bottle. They were surprised and so was he when wakered up in der hospital.

Mmmm... okay. Is there perhaps a mistake? Have I stumbled on a bunch of idiots masquerading as Bowie fans. Do you people ever connect with the real world. Once? Twice? Every other public holiday? It's good to know that Bowie parties still exist and that some of you actually listen to the music... but to be honest this site seems little other than an excuse to post drunken messages about each other and to wallow in your own enjoyment of e-mail. My advice is go to a chatroom that caters for that and burn your Bowie albums. You have nothing to say that is useful.

Papa use to have a regular nightmare that he was down in the underground.He would wander the sewers endlessly and never find an ice cream, (as there were no primary colors in the underground).He would reassure himself later, that although his ice creams did not reach the sewers, the people who ate his ice cream reached for the sewers themselves.They had participated in a great and noisy adventure that started with a sea of turmoil in their very own bowels and ended in the great salty seas and way up into the clouds again. A toy only makes people happy for a while, Papa's 'toys' even less, but they do come back for more...if they are able?

I know I'm not alone here. The feeling of dread when you wake up and find that unholy fiend stuck in your head. And you KNOW it won't go away until it decides it's bored with you and decides to take its leave of its own accord. I'm rambling on about THE UNWANTED MELODY THAT KEEPS ON CHIMING IN YOUR HEAD. Usually it's a really tacky thing. Aqua, Spears and other horrors come to mind as procurers of such vile ditties. The point here is about the wisdom of Jeaj and his drunkish behaviour which I applaud. My only release from "the unwanted" is to binge Laphroig. Then out goes Aqua and in comes "Fashion" by Bowie. Over and over again. Oh, god, please never let it stop!!! It's saturday morning in Belgium. Meesa gots plenty left in du böttle. Meesa says cheerio SKÅL!!!

Jeaj's easy life of alcoholic stupor, what has the real world come to?. My papa worked hard he could not get drunk, he had an ice cream van to drive. The fine liquids my papa would make in the early morning would rebel against him if he did not keep the ice cream van steering in a straight line. One day papa slid on some antifreeze and all his nuts flew out of the sack,so he had to wait for another consignment. While he waited he decided to send uncle Pinky out in his van with the Aladdin Sane piano solo playing on the chimes. My papa knew from the other side of town that day that my uncle Pinky had got drunk. He could tell by the doppler effect on the Aladdin Sane ,that the van was wandering all over the road. Later when uncle Pinky returned he was angry and said "Pinocolarder you treatar my van as toy?". He replied that he treated everything new to him as a toy, he could not help himself. He waved at the policemen but they did not wave back so he chucked at them a raspberry ripple pebble dash wallblaster.Papa sighed and clasped his hands, he knew it was not his day today. papa use to make

TOY is a product of Grotesque Exaggeration, a Miracle-Monster generated by an Excess of Imagination. With the TOY, the familiar structure of existence is undermined and chaos seems imminent. This aspect is intensified when concrete manifestations of decay appear and a feeling of hopelessness and corruption is developed. The ludicrous aspect, in turn, arises from the farcical quality the TOY exudes. The Toy is the Becoming--the State between Order and Chaos. The Toy is Marvelous--full of fable, novelty, and paradox. The Toy is the utmost imperfection, a fantastic whim, a fop, a dandy, a grotesque beauty.

For those who had questions about the SPIDER theme in Bowie Songs--Glass Spider/Spiders from Mars: The Spider is the Trickster-Creator of the Sun and Moon and the Stars. He is crafty, sly, and villainous but he is also a hero to humankind. There are many tales where he sets himself up as the first king of human beings. There are also tales where the humans turn against the tricky spider.

Hello This is a surprise. I've been a Bowie fan for... over twenty years, which I know is only a fraction of the time he has been working. Favourite album... a toss up between "Low" and "Lodger", but to be honest all have been amazing except for "Let's Dance" onwards. Sorry but that late eighties weird dance/croon/post-new-romantic thing didn't work for me. I actually stumbled across this guestbook while searching for decent video-rental stores in London. Anyone know of one? I don't mean Blockbuster either... good places with interesting art-house etc. I hate the phrase but it's the only one I know to describe the stuff I want. Okay back to Bowie. I'm glad to see that this site still exists. The bit I came across was from 1996 and it seemed to be falling apart. I hope the personal chat stuff has gone. Bowie's much more interesting. It does seem to me tho that there's been so much written, discussed etc about the man that little else can be said. He was the biggest influence on music worldwide up to, including, and after the Pistols and it was only drum&bass that fucked things up for him. However, I reckon his new thing "Toy" will be worth the wait so let's hope for a new direction and something to talk about. By the way... I heard a Gary Numan live session on John Peel the other night, or before John Peel... I don't know. It must have been a few years old but that man had it in bucketfuls! I think Gary should start recording again instead of flying planes and all that. Anyway, this is bollocks and I've nothing worthwhile to say. See ya.

Tommy, I agree. The Prison priests may be decent but Prison can not hold all this "greedy intention." One of the things that characterizes the Toy is "loss of control over his life including loss of Autonomy." In the song Architect's Eyes, Bowie also alludes to how "Exiles" are forced to participate in meaningless, time wasting activities: "the money is from day to day." "These summer Scum Holes." "This god-damned starving life." "Is this Delay just Wasting My Time!?" Oddly enough the Toy is also seen as an eternal child or as a holy innocent. Baby Grace or Baby Universal were both Innocents sacrificed to a world of chaos. Bowie uses the Toy Theme very cunningly. He alludes to the Object of Pity, more specifically, of Self-Pity in Battle for Britain: "I got used to stressing pain, I took the sucker pills to pity for the self." Also in Prisoner of Love--"I was a victim of my own self-persecution." He even pokes fun in "Small Plot." "Poor Dunce, he never knew." Or Shining Star--"Poor little bodies..."
Nevada Kerr (Posted from IP:

I got the book you wanted Nevada. Obviously throughout history, the Outsider has been subject to Marginalization, Rejected by Family, Neighbors, Community, Society. The TOY, like the OUTSIDER experiences a Symbolic Stigmatization by Marking or Labeling. The Toy Theme shows up in Scream Like a Baby: "I mixed with other colors, but the nurse does not care." Being cast into one or more historical devalued roles with recurrent relegation to an Exiled Social Status is as true for the TOY as it is for the Outsider Artist. The Object of Abuse is also subject to continued and multiple threats and vulnerabilities: "They took away our clothes and things and pumped us full of strange drugs." The themes of Isolation, Loss of Freedom, De-Individualization, and Objectification are strewn throughout Bowie's song-writing. The Toy--lost, broken, abandoned is an all too common theme in his early work. In all the Madmen, Bowie conjectures that the life of "freemen" is one of Institutionalization and that only the Mad are free!

The OTHERS must see the FAKER: In the song big hurt Bowie sang: "Speak in Extremes, it will save you time; you were a Saint Abroad but A Devil at home." The Story-teller, the liar, the jestingstock makes a TOY of you. Passing from the Sublime to the Ridiculous, the Harlequin passes on his "crazy wisdom." And of course we "Swallow the bait!"

The db illustrated discography such a good idea with his funny -though strange at the first look- advertisement with David Bowie "secoué-H.S." (in French) in one of your previous reviews, a cover of a Music-Magazine already in the paperback "Bowiestyle" where his sense of self great value is tempered by some cold feeling !

I've just received "Black tie white noise" in the post, after winning it at "E-Bay". That means now that I own all of Bowie's "official" albums! It must be about £300 I've spent on Bowie, if not more. I bet he's bought a few McDonald meals and had many nights out on the booze with my money and not forgetting to renew his bus pass with what change he has left over. But it's all been worth it..............well apart from "Tonight", but if you buy the class you've got to expect the shite as well?

It's 2 p.m. in Paris, France : 7 a.m. in New York City, USA. Time to wake up for the "sleepy heads" and to "turn up the light" for all who desire live and listen to some music like "Sweet Jane", lyric of the day in TW ! (Good choice)

Excerpt from Nevada Kerr's Bowie Wonder World Column: 'In the Tarot, the Fool whose number is Zero "looks back" unaware that he is about to step in the abyss. That Abyss is the Interval of Relief, the Temporary Delay, the Dalliance, the Diversion, the Grace Period, the "generous gift" offered to the Prisoner of Love by the Giver of Charm & Beauty, the Dispenser of Sensual Bliss. The Sacred Hours, Dispensers of Mercy offer "temporary reprieves," short-term exemptions, brief interludes, regenerative dalliances, Sacred TOYS found at the crossroads.'

this is my first time here - great to see there is so much devoted to bowie on the web. i've been a fan of the man since i was 13 - 17 years now. i just got the "stage" album recently and remembered it as being one of the best (i used to listen to a friends copy! - couldn't afford my own!) i just wanted to say, it sounds as great as ever - especially station to station - it still sends me! and all the heroes / low instrumental is breathtakingly haunting and stark - beautiful. nothing more to say at the moment xx

Good news about the Eastern Artist and his Film with the work of David : good portrait, savage clear hair and hands up : very lively character. Nice to know him before the break of week-end in an end of the afternoon, after having heard Lou Reed's Ecstasy Album, writing with him letters to one and the other... Waiting for Toy, Davy's next album, if i did understand well in this exhausting day.

With TOY, Bowie is picking through the Manure Heap for Peppercorns! In the song Chilly Down, DB said "Think Small!" In Seven, he was small enough to cry. In "I am with Name," he knew who the Small Friends were. In Time will Crawl, Bowie sang till "our feet grow small." In "Leon takes us Outside," Bowie whispered "In View of Nothing." This Toy is so small, it is almost invisible! No News on Toy! Is that Good News?

Reuters today is reporting that rather than wait years for payments, plaintiffs' lawyers in some of the tobacco cases are going to sell their own version of the legendary Bowie Bonds, so they can get their hands on the bucks now. They can pay off the bonds once they get the tobacco money, and have use of the bond money in the interim.

To the webmaster, Congrats on your ever so detailed site and very well done site on the much adored David Bowie. Peter told me to sign the guestbook cos you'd be "stoked" (?). I haven't really had a very big interest in him but i think it's already starting to develop. Obviously, by the way people talk here, i'm missing out on something. cheers, kim ALSO, god forbid more teeny bopper covers to ever come in to contact with radioland again. [ ie stupid version of ashes to ashes by some girl; some people should be shot ;) ]
