I've basically only listened to Bowie today. Blackstar, Heroes, The Labyrinth Soundtrack (to cheer myself up after that duo), The Next Day and I've been listening to A Reality Tour on and off for the last few hours as work permits.

I was the best man at his wedding and he introduced me to my tax lawyer.

Berninger even looks a bit like Bowie, in a way.

Stardust aka Cody Rhodes painted his face like Aladdin Sane era Bowie tonight on WWE Raw.

Read an article today that very casually mentioned that Bowie weighed 110 pounds on the Diamond Dogs Tour.

Yeah, Google pics from that tour. He was skinnier than Dylan in '65.

Was in total shock this morning when I saw after listening to Blackstar all weekend! I was thinking how he's been on such a creative streak with this & Next Day and couldn't wait to see what he'd do next. Sad, cancer can take anyone. At least he went out with a hit album and a much talked about new music video.

Today I listened to Blackstar, Heathen, Lodger (suck it, Cobbler), and Leon (unreleased outtakes from Outside). Currently at a local dive bar where they're playing all Bowie all night. Decent selection, got some Labyrinth, Earthling, Heathen and other deep cuts to go along with the classic hits.

Whoever it is playing drums on the whole Blackstar album is a real talent. I saw that James Murphy contributed percussion to a couple of tracks (surprisingly, the shorter ones), but I can't credit him for everything this time.

I think Sue is my least favorite on the album. The beats sound like they're lifted from Earthling, to be honest.

I think it's my least favorite as well. It simply doesn't stick with me. I have yet to listen to the original recordings, so perhaps I would prefer the early take.

Tis a Pity is difficult to listen to because the vocal is so strained and weary, but the music is the exact opposite and it's absolutely thrilling. Fucking insane drums. The whole track feels like it's on the verge of hyperventilation.

Finally sitting down and listening with a bottle of wine. Man, the way he sings "I / I will be king" at the midpoint of "Heroes" ... that might be my favourite vocal moment of all time.
