I’ve had some lapses on this blog (which, it perplexes me to note, is 14 years old next month), but this one is a whole new level—first post of 2014?! Yeah. Well, the fact that the Website has literally been offline since April probably didn’t help any…
But we’re back. And spruced up a little. The front page and the portfolio section need finishing up but everything else appears to be functioning, and nothing’s missing.
(This post was backdated in Nov ’14 to fill in some stuff missed during Ye Website being offline…)
I was hoping to see Tori at her traditional Meet & Greet appearance, so I took along the booklet for her Piano boxset, hoping I might get it signed.
I am aghast to realise it was ten years ago (almost) that I tried to make a Bowie Top Ten list.
Thought I’d try similar, with the same reckless abandon, and see what comes out.
Nice scarf, Dave. And you do rock the odd gray streak in that awesomely luscious hair. 😉
Or so it says on an old badge I still have. Which I used to wear a lot. Being absent from the blog so much this year means no Bowie Talk about the new album, The Next Day. Yeah, I liked it; yeah, I’ve had my ups-and-downs with it. In the end I made peace with it fully—I actually love some of it intensely.
See, I thought he was gone for good. And I was more or less okay with that. It might seem odd but the whole thing was very emotional for me. I had to go through a wide spectrum of feelings. On the other side, I’m really happy the new album exists. The world is a better place with DB in it.
New Club Vamporama—it’s been a while again. But this strip was a chance to give a nod to Mr Bowie’s return to music, plus other silliness.
Well, the whole damn world’s posted about it already now, but I need to hammer it home anyway. I’ve just about stopped reeling. Mr D Bowie celebrated his birthday today with the release of his first single for aeons and an album coming in March—his first since Reality in September 2003.
