Bowie rules!
Have you ever seen the Cracked Actor documentary? It's the best thing I've seen in a long time. It's up on the Trader's Den at the moment:

My four year old enjoys watching the Doodlebops on the Disney channel. One of them has red hair and looks a lot like a cross between Bowie on the 'Pin Ups' album cover and David's 'Diamond Dogs' character, Halloween Jack.

Glad to hear some love for Bowie, _tunic_. I listened to Aladdin Sane, Station to Station & Low yesterday.

Look! He's wearing a puffy shirt.

He can mime. He's good at it.

I, like most people, am not big on the miming.
That's just the way it goes.
I am, sometimes into the rhyming, though.

he reminds me of the joker there.

I bought an LP of station to station a week ago and left it in my car... it warpped before i got to listen to it. It was a total drag.

Bowie studied miming under Lindsay Kemp in the sixties. One of the things I've always loved about Bowie is the way he drew from so many diverse influences well outside the relatively narrow world of rock music. For example, the way the Ziggy-era stage show contained elements of miming and Kabuki theater or the way he incorporated Orwell's "1984" and William Burroughs' cut up technique into the lyrics of "Diamond Dogs". He's drawn from such a diverse well of influences throughout his career and as he himself has pointed out, his greatest talent probably lies in his ability to create these unique synthesises, these unholy marriages, in his work. That's what he's all about, really. I think Sonic Youth has done something similar in the sense that their aesthetic is just as influenced by say, abstract painting and beat poetry as it is by other musicians. And I think people like Bowie's and SY's knowledge of not only music, but art, film and literature, and their ability to gain inspiration from these other mediums and incorporate that into their work, is by and large what makes them so special.

Bowie rules, but the miming is borderline creepy.

The Bowie doc that's played on the Biography channel has a good minute or two of vintage mime footage.

Who has more great albums than Bowie?

No one...besides Sonic Youth, Neil Young, The Stones & The Beatles.

studio albums?

The only GD releases that are great are Aoxomoxoa, Workingman's Dead, & American Beauty.

Blues for Allah & In the Dark are just good.

Reckoning & Europe '72 are monstrously sweet, but they are releases of live recordings.

If you want them to haha.
Well, Zappa has a gazillion studio albums, but how many are really great besides Apostrophe, Joe's Garage & Over-nite Sensation? Hot Rats & Baby Snakes & many others are good.

true, true

and I do agree with you about them only having a couple of great studio albums. Anthem Of The Sun is great too, though it has live recordings mixed in with the studio record.

But ya just can't beat the live stuff like Live/Dead and Skull & Roses and the Dick's Picks series.

The only Zappa LP I've ever enjoyed was Hot Rats. and some parts of Weasels Ripped My Flesh

There's way too many great live dead ones to even begin counting.

I believe khchris(original) wrote once that Apostrophe is Zappa's best. I agree. At the time, I didn't wanna write that I agreed.

out yo mind

I consider Let's Dance as a great album even.

1 great one? WHIM can sponsor you if you need help with accutane or anti-psychotic medication.

Hunky Dory
Ziggy
Aladdin Sane

3 that can top most anyone right there.
