shinkster23:13pm:: A Bowie novel blog

Hi!

I'm a long-time Bowie fan and new member here on LiveJournal, looking for readers for my Bowie story. It's a tongue-in-cheek thing about the legend of the Thin White Duke, a longer piece (a novel posted in segments), of which I haven't posted all I have yet. Not fan fiction as such, but original fiction about the man (yes involving a fan element but still), urban fantasy revolving about the concept that Station to Station is an evil spell, with some fans sent back in time in order to prevent him taking over the world.

Searching through Bowie communities here I noticed that this one is active, so I thought I might hint there's something someone might like to check. If it's not your thing I understand, but someone into Bowie might find it entertaining. Hope you don't mind this self-promotion.

My blog can be found here: http://shinkster.livejournal.com/. I very much welcome all comments whatsoever, also anonomously.

Do any of you know of any essays or analyses on The Man Who Fell to Earth, both the novel and the film (not necessarily both at once)? I'm preparing to write an essay myself comparing the two and I'm having a particularly difficult time finding anything on the film that isn't just a synopsis or movie review.

Thank you for any help.

dizzymartian01:39am:: Beyond 1984...

My brain seems to recall seeing it *somewhere*, but as it often does, my brain tends to just make things up to lead me off in odd directions. Does anybody recall ever seeing a list of books which David himself has claimed to be his favorites?

He frequently made (using the past tense made me cringe) literary references in his songs and in interviews over the years, but do you recall there ever being a formal "top ten (or whatever" list of his personal favorites - possibly as a sidebar in a magazine?

dizzymartian16:48pm:: A Reality Tour CD/digital release + 1967 deluxe version

The 2cd version of the A Reality Tour DVD has been released today with three songs which had not been on the DVD (Fall Dog Bomb The Moon, Breaking Glass, and China Girl). In addition, two exclusive songs have been added to the iTunes version: 5:15 The Angels Have Gone and Days. At least in the US iTunes store. I would be surprised if it were any different in other regions.

Thankfully, for once, the two digital-only tracks are not "album only", and may be purchased individually.

The deluxe reissue of the 1967 self-titled debut album also saw release this week. I'm really looking forward to comparing the mono and stereo versions (both of which have been included on the first disc).

It's so odd to see both his first major release - and his most recent major new release - with deluxe reissues on the same day.

revenantminx10:01am:: Labyrinth

I just read the wiki on Labyrinth where someone put up a 2002 interview with Bowie in a German magazine that said there was a scene and a song edited out of the film...
"One song originally on the soundtrack, "First Kiss", was cut after the corresponding scene was removed from the film. Test audiences had objected to a kiss between Sarah and Jareth, as both Sarah's character and the actress portraying her were underage. Without the kiss, the song made no sense, so the entire sequence was cut, shortening the film's runtime by six minutes, according to Bowie in a 2002 interview."
http://www.spiegel.de/kultur/musik/0,1518,200282,00.html
Does this mean that there may be footage hidden away somewhere? And a super-awesome Jareth song I haven't heard?

Hi!
I think everybody know about SHM-CD and a lot of japanese reissues of classic rock in this format. And Bowie is not an exception. I'm always try to buy releases in japanese edition because of additional tracks, bonuses and so on. The best place for it is cdjapan. So, from their newsmail I found out that some of Bowie's releases in SHM-CD are already available for pre-order *__*

So I have only been a fan of Bowie since last spring when I fell in love with his portrayal of Jareth the goblin king in the movie Labyrinth, but already I know a bunch about him and have eight of his albums (one day I hope to own them all if I can!) I absolutely LOVE HIM!
has anyone seen that Jean commercial where they play the Jean Genie?, I grin like a mad idiot every time I see that. Its always fun when you hear or see something randomly on the telly with Bowie in it!

I cannot be the only person who kept hearing "Joe The Lion" pop up in their head whenever they also heard the name, "Joe The Plumber" during the final weeks of the recent US presidential election.

Or perhaps I can. I think it would have been a lot less annoying if I had been able to come up with a more appropriate line to replace "...went to the bar."

dizzymartian22:56pm:: Oh. Yes. Nice.

A few selections from: http://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/business/industry_sectors/media/article4107726.ece

"The BBC will make available to EMI all its television and radio archives of the record company’s acts in a five-year agreement under which the two will also collaborate on television productions."

"Highlights of the BBC archive include behind-the-scenes footage of David Bowie’s 1974 Diamond Dogs tour , which will be released for sale in CD, DVD and downloadable formats. A BBC Omnibus documentary crew filmed the tour in a period when the singer was using cocaine. The result was the film Cracked Actor."

And speaking of the BBC archive, in general terms: "EMI will release a small portion of the material as part of CD and DVD sets or downloads. The entire archive will be released on a yet-unnamed “direct to consumer” website owned by the BBC’s commercial unit. “Content will be made available for sale, or will be free with adverts,” Mr Mukaddam said."

The above link contains a few bits concerning Pink Floyd and the Beatles, as well, but the next few years may finally turn up some very interesting releases! The wording suggests that an official release for Cracked Actor will be one of the first projects released under this new deal. I can't wait to see whatever else they decide to dust off.
