Uncorrectitude=maximum, by virtue of impossibility. The Sovereign couldn't possibly be any cooler, so him being cooler than I suspected just can't be.

That's an impressive amount of cool.

That is such a fun movie.  He was perfect for it.

Bowie has always been that cool. He's now cool as a blowback option on his own fame. Hating Bowie is as cool for Bowie as liking him. He is, and always has been, and always will be, Quantum Bowie.

I loved the fact that he wrote the music (ending credits) to 'Breakfast Club'. I'll always respect him for that.

That's your Bowie moment? It's not even true. His lyrics for "Changes" were included in the opening sequence for that movie. For all the man has done, that is nothing.

I am at the age that I only got to experience 80's MTV Bowie. I REALLY love "China Girl". The lyrics, the music, the feeling... love it. However, I am aware that he was quite the ground-breaker in the '70's.

bedonkadonk: I was amused by the story about how his eye changed color


Except that the story is wrong.  Bowie doesn't have different colored eyes, his left eye simply won't dilate.  Look at close ups of his face (like the one a few posts above) and you'll see it.  Hitting someone won't change the color of their eye.

Well, yes, it will. If it is red.

Did I ever tell you about the time Bowie was in a production of The King and I? Well anyway, before the show, Bowie chloroforms the entire cast, and slowly eats them in front of the audience for two hours. The production got pretty good reviews.

The original Iggy Pop version of China Girl is actually cooler than the Bowie version.

You'd better add "I was roughly her age at the time," lest you get labeled a pedo by the Fark Pedo Brigade.

Ms Connolly and I are almost exactly the same age. I saw that movie first run. Tell me again how having a crush on her is wrong. She was, and is, hot.

Actually, his left eye is permanently dilated due to the injury.

I think it's nice that the Bowie family takes time to knock down a few pins at the corner alley.  I wonder if Iman has her own shoes or she uses rentals?

When the time comes for the biopic to happen, it's going to be a tossup between Michael Sheen and Tilda Swinton for the role.

14 years old. On the dvd, david makes a comment that he had to keep reminding himself she's only 14. Because she was such a good actress. Right.

Ah, I just did quick math and forgot that the movie probably wouldn't have been made exactly the same time it was released.

Remember the first time a Playboy Playmate was younger than you? That was a mindfark.

Then it was realizing a girl I was dating was born after "Star Wars."

Now it's meeting full-blown adults who were born after I graduated high school.

Some time in the next decade it may well be that we have a president younger than me. I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around that.
