    missing the seventies.
    President Carter
    Helmut Schmidt
    Afghanistan was still a country people could travel to
    and Ziggy Stardust.
    Fuck, and now?

      Sabine @ 1 yes and full employment, remember needing a job and wondering down town cold calling and before long I had a job…..unmaterialistic, most we aspired to was a good stereo………

      • Sabine 1.1.1

        my memorey is one of all the blokes in my family within one year loosing all of their jobs with Siemens, my Nana and the Ladies loosing her job at the Cotton Weavers. From pretty fairly of the mill after war middleclass they went to unemployment.
        T’was not pretty to see for a kid in her early teens.

        No jobs/apprentiships around when i came of age in the early 80’s. But I got to experience the awesomeness that were the Yuppie Years under Chancellior Kohl. That man should still be shot for treason.

  2. Mary 2

    St John the Baptist is prevalent in Leonardo’s paintings – not Jesus (Judah – David).

    The white Virgin Mary is Nephthys (not Isis) she is the mother of Jesus (Judah- David)

    Nephthys has the green eye, and is the mother of Jesus. The Davidic Line.

    Mary Magdalene is from Benjamin, She is the eternal feminine.

    There is old wave, there is new wave, and there is Bowie.

    This from the decade he released 11 albums, became the first white artist on US’s soul train and in harness with another legend, Brian Eno, reset his meter with the berlin trology.

  4. Mary 4

    Mary Magdalene, is regarded in the Holy Grail legends as the carrier of the grail- the bloodline, not the white Virgin Mary. Mary Magdalene is a Benjamite, and regarded supreme compared to Jesus (Judah- David).

    The white Virgin Mary has a snake beneath her feet – she is the snake, the green eye.

    The Black Madonna’s are Isis (Mary Magdalene).

    The Benjamites are the Merovingians.

    Benjamin Smart died, and now you are going to give him JUSTICE, and kill your green eye.

    Leonardo also included St John the Baptist in his paintings along side Jesus, to represent two brothers, but Jesus is from Judah (son of the white Virgin), therefore St John the Baptist is the Son of Isis.

    I’ve always thought the best song to describe Prime Minister John Key is David Bowie’s The Man Who Sold the World.

    Bowie goes to Mars, finds salty water… flies report on how much safer martian water is than New Zealand’s
    Bowie then proceeds to release 10 LP Box Set

    meanwhile key buys a panda

  7. Pasupial 8

    A particular reason?

    “There is liquid water today on the surface of Mars,” Michael Meyer, the lead scientist on Nasa’s Mars exploration programme, told the Guardian. “Because of this, we suspect that it is at least possible to have a habitable environment today.” …

    “These may be the best places to search for extant life near the surface of Mars,” said Alfred McEwen, a planetary geologist at the University of Arizona and senior author on the study. “While it would be very important to find evidence of ancient life, it would be difficult to understand the biology. Current life would be much more informative.”


    But going with the Bowie adulation theme, this is my favourite track from his Berlin period. It’s a pretty good vid too; especially the spontaneity of the street scenes, but the studio stuff is kinda fun. Plus a killer bridge:

    Time flies when you’re having fun
    Break his heart, break her heart
    He used to be my boss and now he is a puppet dancer
    I am a D.J., and I’ve got believers


  8. Rosie 9

    Love and Mercy! One never needs a reason for Bowie 😀

  9. Morrissey 10

    For the very definition of “lame”, check out Bowie and that rhythmically challenged old fool Mick Jagger performing their crass and grotesque mockery of Martha and the Vandellas’ classic “Dancing in the Streets”. For that, Bowie (and Jagger) will go to Hell, if there is any justice in the universe.

    And then there was all that Thin White Duke fascism bullshit….

  10. Water on Mars ?
    As Dr Mike Joy was quoted on Nation Radio this morning (or was it yesterday?) saying ‘we’ are wasting all this money and effort on looking for water on Mars, while destroying what we have here.

  11. And on the music theme how about this with Cameron in mined.
