This is a link post David Bowie in one minute, in one take I made this!
Hullo! I made a thing about the life and times of David Bowie. Hope people like it! It includes laughing gnomes and the Labyrinth crotch bulge.

This is a normal post Haha thanks man!
We really wanted to do a Jagger bit from the very beginning. We were going to get someone in a mullet wig and draw on some Jagger jowls in board marker. Probably wasn't a good idea... Also for some reason I got so bowled over by photos of Bowie in the 90s WEARING A FUCKING T-SHIRT AND BEING IN A GRUNGE BAND WHAT and we did that instead, I guess it kept focus on him.

This is a normal post I'm still laughing at your Kanye one.

Been recommending it to anyone who will listen.

This David Bowie effort is a bit "meh".... only because it's so tragically true, and not "it's funny coz it's troooo!"

From my non-music historian perspective, I couldn't shake the idea that he was too much a shrewd businessman always lookin' for the next fad. Yes, he might have been leading the way in some of them, but how many kiddies *really* followed him? Who dressed up as space traveler for a big night out chasing the ladies? He was always the odd-bod.

He didn't produce enough age-defining hits to excuse his attention seeking. Y'know, the kind of hits that a generation embraces, and defines a wonderful brief time in their youth. Madonna had [has?] a very similar game plan to Bowie's, but she gets a pass.... because she consistently put the runs on the board. Hits. Fashion. Sexuality. Girl power. And I'm in no way a fan of hers at all.

"Space Oddity" is an OK song in a creepy sad kind of way. "Fame" is good. "Modern Love" is a toe tapper. His best-of albums are good long distance driving fare. But how does his legacy stack up against The Rolling Stones or The Who or Queen? Or even Madness, if you want a slightly more modern example.

He rates at around Deep Purple or Alice Cooper levels. That's probably why he cashed in his chips in 1997 and issued bonds for his future royalties. He knew he was gonna be remembered as a spud! :) Sell high.

A *very* big disclaimer to finish with: I wasn't a sentinel being in the mid-1970s. This is merely a Gen Xer's point of view, from what I've picked up from old timers and documentaries and articles.

ps: Cap'n, you didn't work in a quick Davy Jones / Monkees pun? Son, I am disappoint.

pps: I'm *not* having a go! This comment was meant to end at the "funny coz it's trooo" sentence. Fuck me, talk about a stream of consciousness.

This is a normal post I'm a boring opinionated old git.


I has that exact stupid expression on my face as the fella in the Youtube link when I read the meandering monstrosity of a comment I had just posted.

This is a normal post Ohhh, have we got a video?

In the pleasant backwater where I grew up, when video players and video stores first appeared [probably 5 years after the rest of the Western world], all movies would have a number of movie trailers at the beginning of the tape.

It quickly became Chinese water torture. It was like they only chose from a pool of 20 movies, and some of them were a few years old.

"Mephisto", "Turkey Shoot", "Road Games", "Southern Comfort", "Scanners", "Puberty Blues", "I Spit on Your Grave", and MARTHER FARKING "Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence" starring David Bowie as Mr. Lawrence.

The part in the trailer where the Japanese prison guard shouts "Melly Clistmas! Mista Rorrence" is seared into my freaken brain. :)


Check out the stupid look on poor old Mr. Lawrence's head, willya.
