Half Pages

Experimenting with half-page journals for things I want to record that aren't full pages unto themselves.

Oh Garden Hen Bob! Your hair!

That quote pretty much sums it up, doesn't it? I spent the weekend saying to myself "I need more Bowie music." Guess this was why.

You've taken a Good Lesson to heart. I will work on learning it too.

Blessed Be, Kingfisher.

Re: Oh Garden Hen Bob! Your hair!

Yup.

If you need more, he released a video called "Lazarus" a couple of days ago. As a friend of mine said, clearly he went out entirely on his own terms.

There's also a recording of "Under Pressure" remixed to only include his and Freddy Mercury's vocals, which I've seen going around.

Re: Oh Garden Hen Bob! Your hair!

That was lovely! Thank you!

I wasn't much of a Bowie fan. But the tribute version of "Space Oddity" from space.com left me sobbing in a dark room. It's just...so very...right.

May we all take the lesson to heart.

Thank you. This was indeed perfect.

Somehow, even though I've never been an actual fan, losing him is a kick in the gut. I think it's because of exactly what you and Mr. Mudron said. Some people just feel immortal, even though you know better.

Spent time on Saturday listening to the new music released on his birthday. Stunned to hear he had died. Once again, he blazes the trail ahead of us all, a real Starman now, waiting in the sky.

Definitely a shock. Although Monster Alice says that 69 is ca. 103 in rock star years...

This is a really good article on him: https://www.washingtonpost.com/entertainment/music/singer-david-bowie-dies-at-69-mesmerizing-performer-of-many-alter-egos/2016/01/11/e133f63c-b859-11e5-99f3-184bc379b12d_story.html

"Star Man" is now stuck in my head...

This is beautiful. Thank you.

Friends of mine in Omaha are

having a really hard time. As Mary put it, "I was going to call around and have all the friends listen to Space Oddity and then we could all meet at Mo's... oh shit."

(Mosx' burned down over the weekend.)
