David Bowie - Queen Bitch

"... has turned himself into a bizarre, self-constructive freak!" 
Haha! We wouldn't be doing our job if we didn't keep up the generation wars, the class wars, the culture wars...

By the way, I wonder how he's spending his time these days, I had the impression he's a workaholic, certainly hyper-active, but he's not put out an album since Reality in 2003. (By the way, pretty much the first Bowie album ever where I liked the album art. It seems almost like he's taken a pride in ugly covers.)

... I see he had a heart operation in 2004. That might take some of the air out of from under the wings of anybody, I guess. 

Update: A friend called my attention to this amazing koinkidink, this just came out today:

I've wondered about that myself. But it seems I read recently that he's working on a book, an autobiography I guess. Still, no new album since 2003? Come on, dude.

Admittedly, Hours and Reality didn't do much for me.

His stuff in the nineties was very mixed (well, it always has been), but there were some cracking songs in there, like I Have Not Been To Oxford Town.

Thanks for the update! :)

"... has turned himself into a bizarre, self-constructive freak!"

That's really cool :)

I liked him very much in The Labyrinth
