For a number of reasons, tonight I ended up Looking At Old Bowie Interviews On YouTube. And I found this one, which is really a Tin Machine interview. It’s in a Vancouver hotel room and Terry David Mulligan — TDM for us old local folks — is asking the hard-hitting questions. David looks very shiny in… Continue reading When Bowie Spent Time In A Tanning Booth (Or So I Assume)
I don’t know why I like this so much, but I do. I adore it. And I’d buy it, right now, legitimately, but I have only $0.92 of iTunes credit lingering in my account and the song costs $1.29. Tomorrow, maybe I’ll buy one of those iTunes cards. I like it better than Sue. Sue… Continue reading I Love This. If Only I Had The iTunes Credit.
Is there a new David Bowie album or is there not… don’t mind us for asking, David, we just miss you.

And it was about the time I saw Bowie and, as I confessed earlier on this blog, got bored. He… Continue reading I’m In Nostalgia Mode, But It Will Pass
As I was writing about the apology David got from the Ottawa Citizen on another blog – one for which I receive some measure of income – I was lamenting the lack of a recent picture to put above my lengthy, blathering words. No recent snaps of David smiling, looking gruff, joyful or even neutral… Continue reading Let’s take a minute now, and think calmly about this space oddity situation.
Not me. What’s super-interesting… someone posted this on another site, in explanation, in the comments: “Craig, The copyright holder on “Space Oddity” is actually an organization called “Onward Music Ltd.”, which was a publishing arm of Fly Records, an obscure ’70s label owned by a certain David Platz. Fly Records’ first release was T-Rex’s “Ride… Continue reading Who Knew Bowie Didn’t Have The Rights To ‘Space Oddity’?
