Just thought, do you think he could use his permanently dilated eye as some sort of night vision when he's just come it from somewhere bright?

How stoned were you when you posted this?

Finally watched the last five years that I'd recorded before it. Both really good. Lots of the beeb stuff I'd seen before but really enjoyed the last five years. 

Have you seen the skyarts one with Bowie, Prince. Len Cohen + others? Again not much new, but enjoyable (and sad).

Not at all, just been watching too many videos of Bowie this week, with all the close ups on his eyes.

So, do you think so? He could go for a wee at night, turn the bathroom light on and still be able to see when he went back to bed.

I loved the interview with Marc Riley the other night, many clips of Bowie are serious but this clip really showed a very very funny man. I cried .

Excuse the source (The Daily Hate), but I thought some people might want to know about the design of the last album cover;

Just found this. From the Beeb in 1979.

 

A terrific find from John Coulthart. It was “a bit grey out today” on Sunday, May 20, 1979, when the BBC turned Radio One over to David Bowie for a couple of hours. The results were simply delightful—and the session is available in full on YouTube.

Bowie in 1979 was pretty near the top of his game, but then again he seldom seems very far off his game. The tracks Bowie chose to play are as fascinating as those he left off. Several of the artists are to be expected, others entirely unexpected. Bowie, the great popularizer of our time, the man through whom so many influences of the 20th century flowed and were given vital form, you can hear that deep need to show, to bring listeners something new, in every word Bowie utters.

It’s extremely interesting to hear Bowie refer to tracks that are fairly familiar to any decently informed music fan as if nobody knows about them—a lesson in the benefits the Internet (not to mention stacks of CD reissues) has brought, if nothing else.

Track listing
The Doors, “Love Street”
Iggy Pop, “TV Eye”
John Lennon, “Remember”
? & The Mysterians, “96 Tears”
Edward Elgar, “The Nursery Suite” (extract)

Talking Heads, “Warning Sign”
Jeff Beck, “Beck’s Bolero”
Ronnie Spector, “Try Some, Buy Some”
Marc Bolan, “20th Century Boy”
The Mekons, “Where Were You?”
Steve Forbert, “Big City Cat”
The Rolling Stones, “We Love You”
Roxy Music, “2HB”
Bruce Springsteen, “It’s Hard To Be A Saint In The City”
Stevie Wonder, “Fingertips”
Blondie, “Rip Her To Shreds”
Bob Seger, “Beautiful Loser”
David Bowie, “Boys Keep Swinging”
David Bowie, “Yassassin”
Talking Heads, “Book I Read”

Love some of the little descriptions of the songs. Remember by John Lennon - "Rivetingly depressing".

I'll leave my last memory of his music in Dublin on the Reality Tour.

How much is it for you lot? London standing tickets are £32.50 (before rip off fees). I didnt think that was too bad really.

No should be decent. Good chance of special guests too. I might toddle along if I can get cheap tickets closer to the date.

Good stuff. Yeah £50 would have priced me out for sure. I'm surprised the london gig isnt sold out, £32 is pretty cheap for here and it's a tiny venue. Oh well, I've just booked. I'll report back after the event!
