David Bowie: The next thread and the next thread...

In case you missed it, he released an album.

It's better than some things and worse than others.

Btw, i'm a "he". Hehe

About the artwork for the album, i thought it was shit when i knew about it. But it is one thing seeing it on the internet and another thing when you hold it in your hands. I really like it now.

Oh boy, have I got a not particularly interesting anecdote for you guys! Back in University, we used to frequent this one bar pretty much every Thursday night. In one of the many rooms there, they had a DJ booth and the same DJ every week that played shitty music. There was a little sliding window that people could go to for making requests. Every single week for 2 years straight at some point in the night, one of us would go to the window when the DJ's back was turned and yell "YOU SUCK, McBAIN!" and scamper off. He would always come stomping out of the booth and look around with an angry face. Never once did he know who it was. siiiiigh. Good times, you guys. Good times.

It's actually his best week of sales in the SoundScan era, so hopefully it will encourage him to tour.

Only in the Unsophisticated States of America does Bowie not go to number 1:

Bon Jovi Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard 200, David Bowie at No. 2 | Billboard

The article I read last night specifically credited Wal-Mart sales for putting Bon Jovi over the top.

There's an additional bonus track, "God Bless The Girl," that's exclusive to Japan.

Not bad. Some really quality bonus tracks for this release.

I wanted to love this. I'm enjoying it but I'm not crazy in love with it.
