Lady April: Yummy! What is in that book anyway? I mean I know about his issues in Berlin, Iggy Pop, crashing from cocain, crying for help in a small diner and inspiration for LOW (ie. "Weeping Wall"- bizarro) any details yet?

is a new book written by somebody Thomas Jerome Seabrook (interesting name innit ?) about DB's Berlin experiences. They say itsa decent book (unlike many other!), I haven't read it yet, too preoccupied with Jonesy's "Crusades" - must finish them, I usually don't like to read two books at a time.
I stopped buying Bowie books some time ago - I think basicaly "The Complete David Bowie" by the great Nick Pegg has everything you need to know about the man:-)- but I heard good things about this one so I bought it. And also, you can't buy books like that here, so it's irresistable when you see it on the shelf........

a series of Bowie biographies that I'd bought in the late 80's and early 90's shortly after I finnished my Bowie vinyl collection raging from 1966 to 1990's Tin Machine. That is 25 albums and a lot of money later. After indulging in the bio's I actually created my own scrapbook bio of him when I was 17 years old and many drawings and art projects as well. I met Angie in 1993 at a book signing here in Seattle. She is very nice and I have a lot of respect for her.
I haven't collected anything dated past 1990 though.

Johnnyrose: ... I can see that Christmas arrive earlier, this year... Fantastic souvenirs!

How much in US cash is 45 pounds?

kisch at 7:16 am December 15

according to today's rates itsa bout 67 US dollars.
it is quite costly, yes. I gave it to a friend as a birthday pressie, though. Still need to borrow it to watch myself (I only watched the new documentaries, didn't check FC itself).

Lady April at 7:37 am December 15

That blue box? A DVD set I am guessing but of what? That only costs 67 US bucks. :D

I though you were taking about another box set, April, sorry love.
That blue Michael box set is what Hanri said. I haven't bought it myself tho.

Lady April at 2:16 pm December 15

I wish I had that thing but I am unfortunately region 1. That box is cool!
Yes, people, I want it just for the box because I am a twit :D

kisch: Beautiful Michael.

Lady April at 6:37 am December 15

Lady, come to the UK with me next time. Come to the book signing. You'll see him close and .... and what ?... Die happily ? Oh no. You'd want to live !
