            Rowdy’s dead. Pied is available but leave the rats and kids at home.

    “First album in years” – he released an album a year and a half ago… Years might be technically correct I guess.

        Eh, that was a play on words.

        I don’t ever expect Bowie to produce something as funny as ‘Low’ again.
        That Eno fella, he must be mad.
        His brother was in Roxy Music. Not a lot of people know that.

    Give Bowie his dues.
    He knew who to hang around with.
    He lived off others, but he also brought out the best in them.

    But then he lost it with Tin Machine.
    And the rest…

    I used to love Bowie.

      I thought I was (Bowie’s Musical Director/Guitarist and Irishman)

      I certainly won’t be going to this fiasco,because I saw one of the acts before and wet myself.
      Guinness, on a white shirt…don’t ask…

      But you should go.

    Actually, you know what?

    The only Office Christmas Party I can ever remember is the one where the DJ didn’t turn up.
    We listened to a cassette-tape of Bowie’s Gt. Hits.

    We were grateful.

    Isn’t David Bowie just old the older version of John Lydon nowadays².

    Mea Culpa.
    Lydon still has some fire in his soul.
    I love him more than I ever loved Bowie, or anybody else, after my kids.

    Who were we talking about?

        Sorry, I don’t understand or appreciate your concern.

        Two or three times is a week is too much now, is it?
        I should stop.

        You don’t want me during weekdays…
        …because this is how you get me during weekdays.

        1. Owen

          I’m worried for you buddy! I don’t like to think you’re lonely and wasting your wit on the commenters on here!

        2. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

          Owen, I love you.
          I could be wrong, but it’s worth a shot;

          No messing, I think I do.
          I’m obviously wrong, but I think you’re from Tipp.
          We met in a public toilet. You ran away, looking teerrified.

          It was the light.
          I swear it wasn’t that big.
          It was the light.

          Call me.
          Why do you never answer???

          Call me.

    This thread was supposed to be about Bowie…

    Then you made me think of Fink Plucking Floyd, and feeling old.
    …and now I’m thinking of Yes’

    ‘Nous sommes du soliel’
    Back when I were a kid we loved it because it wasn’t as bad as the other stuff they did.
    Nobody else did anything.

    You couldn’t buy records back then, you had to rob them.
    There were no shops. Just gangs.

    Marc Bolan was better.
    -Did you ever see a woman coming out of New York city with a frog in her hand?
    -He did, don’t you know?
    -He did, don’t you know?
    -It don’t show.
