Very touching.



 
Agreed! Blessings counted. Check! He's not all that much older than me. Thanks for the wake up call!!

I spent a lot of time in record stores. Maybe it's just so un-Bowie I never noticed it.

Holy crap. Carly Simon was being interviewed by Diane Rehm this morning and Diane asked her how she felt about Bowie's death - she hadn't heard.

 
I've never heard that show. Eek.

That is the very first release. in this instance the US release came out before the UK release. Then Bowie changed labels and the next batch had different artwork. The Victorian building on the cover was supposedly of an insane asylum in Texas.

There is a photo going around on Twitter and FB of Bowie. The claim is that it was the last photo taken of him, on his birthday, by his wife. Unfortunately, the poster took a watermarked photo taken by someone else and removed the watermark. It's an old picture. Don't fall for it, and share it on social media. People are dicks.

sweet indeed. 

i've been listening to blackstar all day. i have only been drawn to a handful of songs he's done since the 70s but this is one fantastic piece of work to leave us with. haunting and masterful.
