I put on my headphones and closed my eyes.
I turned the volume up and uttered some sighs.
They were of bliss they were not unhappy.
For the voice entering my eardrums brought me unspeakable joy.
The voice was male, a baritone at least.
Deep, hypnotic and gave my ears a feast.
My coração fluttering fast, my insides all warm.
My cheeks all flushed like a vespa swarm.
My body humming pleasurably to the sound of the song.
His cantar felt like it was seguinte to me I turn around and almost gasp at what I see.
A tall, thin blonde man laying seguinte to me.
His skin was pale vampire like.
His eyes mismatched and his teeth...

I am a DJ playing my records on A Fantastic Voyage. The boys keep swinging to the beat and the girls tell them Lets Dance. Andy Warhol began to shake it and richochet on the dance floor. He was dancing with a China girl while the cat people (putting out fire) decided to write A letter to Hermione asking for Changes to be made to the African nite flight. Ziggy Stardust began to enter along with lady stardust and tried to seduce the lady grinning soul por saying "you're a sweet thing and we could be heroes," Her soul amor began to look back in anger to which ziggy replied "john I'm only dancing,"...

“When I Live My Dream;” Focuses on the infinite possibilities of the future, and the positive outlook which can be had por anyone for their future. Bowie outlines the simple dreams of the normal man; dreams which, whilst common, are nonetheless significant to any who can claim ownership of them. The song is a tacit look at the paradoxical qualities of futuristic hopes – for how can something which is someone’s whole life be unimportant in relationship to them, whilst it remains somewhat meaningless on a world scale. It indirectly addresses the perguntas of life values, and the decisions...

I opened the bathroom door to see David and Iman rushing to Lexi’s bedroom. I followed them quickly. Yes Lexi had treated me like dirt at the jantar table, but I wasn’t going to walk away while she was in trouble.
    David tried opening the door to the bedroom we were going to share. It was locked.
    “Lexi!” called out David in panic “Open this door,”
    “Lexi!” cried Iman in the same panicked tone as David trying the locked door again.
    I had learned to pick...

Come back here, you thief or I'm going to call the cops!"

I ran and ran. I had stolen a baguette and a piece of cheese. Now you're probably all thinking why that and not expensive jewelry? Well, I'll tell you my story.

My name is Layla Cummings, I'm only thirteen years old. I had a horrible family life, well when I had a family. My father died when I was three years old. My mother remarried and I had a drunk abusive step dad. He would beat me til I was bleeding, drink until he passed out and I was the one who had to revive the bastard. My mother was often busy working late night shifts at Mc...

“The Gospel According to Tony Day;” Is an allegoric collection of different people’s schemas in approach to life as viewed por Bowie. It clearly displays the driving force which Bowie senses behind these collections of people in their approach to most things in life.
A somewhat restrained sound permeates the song, as it lacks the life and emotiveness which most of the CD contains. This track holds an intriguing view on society, but it lacks the force which is usually so effortlessly conveyed through and with Bowie’s other songs. On another level, however, it is powerful in that it realises...

“There Is A Happy Land;” Is the youthful observances of the fleeting nature of happiness within our lifetimes, and the idea of a metaphysical place which children can retreat to when they’re feeling lonely. Reminiscent of “Castle on A Cloud” from Les Miserable in its concepts, it is seemingly told from a child’s point of view. It is stated that “Adults aren’t allowed there [in the ‘Happy Land’]” Which comes back to the idea of youthful innocence, and its ability derived from need to escape the dismal surroundings for somewhere nice. Perhaps adults simply cannot find the...

The history of Max Machine

The release of the album “Mean Machine” por Max Machine fills the gap of destitution in the long history of music. It was motivated and inspired por the death of Max Kreitler, German Sound engineer at the renowned Hansa Studio in Berlin.

In the period of 1973-1980 Kreitler recorded a large number of legendary musical artists. The Max Machine project arose from a collaboration of Kreitler and Andy Warhol.

Kreitler developed the idea of putting new life into Warhol’s project, The Factory. Artists like Lou Reed, David Bowie, Iggy Pop and Brian Eno, among others, performed...

The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the spiders from Mars was released June 6, 1972 in the UK and in the US September 1, 1972. David Bowie's first alter ego came from the name of a Londres tailor's comprar Bowie saw riding on a train. The band the spiders from Mars consisted of Mick Ronson (guitar) Trevor Boulder (bass) and Mick "Woody" Woodmansey (drums). David Bowie declared after a few years that this would be the last show the spiders from Mars would ever do and in 1973 killed off Ziggy. The album still remains a classic today.

    I walked into the cemetery with a bouquet of flowers. I remembered the details as if it were a few days atrás even though it had been a year.

    My ex boyfriend had been driving to tedeschis to get some sandwiches before picking me up to go to the park for a picnic. A driver driving an SUV had been drinking, swerved off the side of the road and hit him. He was rescued por paramedics only to arrive at the hospital and be announced...

“Silly Boy Blue;” Is the youthful outpourings of a less mature Bowie. The conglomeration of his childhood experiences under the collective heading of ‘school’. This track was clearly written earlier than the others – possibly when Bowie had just graduated, as it is still permeated with the essence of classroom chit-chat and the casual derisions which peers deal out to each other.
So, with a hint of green still gently petering out behind Bowie’s ears, this song marks his musical maturity as having reached a point; a point which it remains on for the entire CD, but which is only just...

A “Rubber Band;” indeed this song is. With a rounded, slightly mournful tone, the song tells the tale of a man’s frequency of visiting the park with his girl, where they listen to an out-of-tune band until the man goes off to fight in the war. The climax of the song describes the man’s anguish when he returns to find his girl “married to the leader of that band.” This dismal ending is forewarned por the doleful nature of the beginning of the song, which seemingly has no cause for woe.
The song has a pleasing turn of phrase and a rolling, curvaceous undertone to the backing track....

I'm brand new in here so I thought I'd ask first. Does anyone mind if I make available a 380,000 word retrospective of Bowie's career from the perception of someone who has been following his work for over 45 years. I will not reprint it in here however, I will make the file available to anyone who wants it.

Please do not think that "IMAGES" is another inane Bowie Biography, because it isn't. In fact, it's the furthest thing from it. Over the last 15 years it has been around, some have called it the best they ever read. Their words, not mine. All I know is that it contains things that you will NEVER find anywhere else
