Floating in the most peculiar way. Goodbye to David Bowie. Tony Visconti's words seem right: He left indeed in a blaze of glory. The videos for "Blackstar" and "Lazarus" made me feel terror, and now it seems more evident there are contemplations of mortality in both of them. I thought vaguely about Johnny Cash in his final days, when I read that article and the commentary from Brian Eno.

The majority of his music is fascinating, and great beyond words but he also was an awesome presence in some movies. It recently crossed my mind that it would be appropriate for David Lynch to explore and unveil some of the haunting mysteries regarding Phillip Jeffries on "Twin Peaks".

Some really thoughtful memories on Bowie from Thurston, Lee and Kim.

Bowie had a vision, was a trailblazer and didn't give a damn what people thought...

I feel like it's still going to be many many years before all the souls and ears can start to fully digest such a discography.

As much as I am fan of David Bowie's music there's so much of it I haven't really given a thorough listen to. I'd heard many of the singles from albums and I had Ziggy Stardust, and Hunky Dory, but there was a lot, particularly his last few albums, so I went to youtube on monday and in succession listened to Earthling, Heathen, and The Next Day in succession. I still have yet to listen to Black Star but I'm almost dreading it. It feels too soon, but I know I will listen to it eventually.

I'm having the same issue. On Friday I saved it on Spotify to listen to soon. On Monday morning I heard the news. Since then I've felt weird about actually listening. I don't know.

Jesus Christ Monkeyballs, the lineup for the "previously scheduled tribute event that has turned into a memorial for David Bowie" is unacceptable. Except for Robyn Hitchcock — and at least half the audience will go, "Who is that guy again?"

[EDIT: Cat Power and Laurie Anderson have been confirmed now. Looking a little better.]

Bowie's QUICKSAND

I'm closer to the Golden Dawn
Immersed in Crowley's uniform
Of imagery
I'm living in a silent film
Portraying
Himmler's sacred realm
Of dream reality
I'm frightened by the total goal
Drawing to the ragged hole
And I ain't got the power anymore
No I ain't got the power anymore

I'm the twisted name
on Garbo's eyes
Living proof of
Churchill's lies
I'm destiny
I'm torn between the light and dark
Where others see their targets
Divine symmetry
Should I kiss the viper's fang
Or herald loud
the death of Man
I'm sinking in the quicksand
of my thought
And I ain't got the power anymore

[CHORUS]
Don't believe in yourself
Don't deceive with belief
Knowledge comes
with death's release

I'm not a prophet
or a stone age man
Just a mortal
with the potential of a superman
I'm living on
I'm tethered to the logic
of Homo Sapien
Can't take my eyes
from the great salvation
Of bullshit faith
If I don't explain what you ought to know
You can tell me all about it
On, the next Bardot
I'm sinking in the quicksand
of my thought
And I ain't got the power anymore


Dinosaur Jr's QUICKSAND

I'm closer to the Golden Dawn
I can't believe the wagon's gone
It's history
I'm living in a callous realm
Where others seem to dig it
Just too much reality
I'm frightened by the total goal
I'm drawing to the ragged hole
And I ain't got the wagon anymore
No, I ain't got the wagon anymore
I'm the twisted name on Uma's eyes
I'm living proof of Cindy's lies
Of destiny
I'm drawing between the light and dark
Where others see their targets
I can't see anything
Should I leave the engine on
To listen to that mountain song
Sinking in the quicksand of my thoughts
And I ain't got the wagon anymore

Don't believe in yourself
Don't deceive with belief
The knowledge comes with death's release
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Not too stable
Hanging by a string
Can't face the thoughts
No wheels will bring
I gotta go
It's bad enough being at home
Without a way to leave the damage
Is gonna show
If I don't explain
What you oughta know
You can tell me all about it
At the next ball show
I'm sinking in the quicksand of my thoughts
And I ain't got the power anymore

Don't believe in yourself
Don't deceive with belief
The knowledge comes with death's release
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Like to put this Bowie´s first quite forgotten album from 1967. It´s not among his greatest albums, but I really like it! And it´s very interesting when you can hear many characters of his later albums in this, he was already then very personal composer & singer. His time wasn´t yet to come.
