BowieNet is about to start producing some snazzy t-shirts to put in the BowieStore to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. We have some nice internal designs that we are working with.... but then it hit us - the talent pool is really our members and since you are all screaming for a new contest - here it is.
Submit your designs for an official BowieNet t-shirt. There are no rules or regulations (except you can't rip off any copyrighted materials).
We will pick 5 finalists, post the winners design and then let our members pick the ultimate winner.
Apparently Bowie was an influence on Ricky Martin. This according to Martin himself. In a recent interview, part of which was on Yahoo News, this nugget was revealed:> 'Martin also has several rocking post-"Livin' La Vida Loca" singles in the pipeline, including a duet with Madonna.
"I grew up listening to Boston, Cheap Trick, Journey and David Bowie," said the ex-Menudo member from Puerto Rico. "When I was a kid, my brothers and I were all into rock, rock, rock."
Does this also bode another duet in the offing for our wonky-eyed hero?
Last week, Bowie went into the studio with Reeves Gabrels and Mark Plati to wrap up the forthcoming "Hours..." album.
Here are a couple of fun video clips taken in the studio. No documentary work here, but we thought you might like to have a look into the studio during the making of the "Hours..."
We are talking about (of course) his Cycling Knees
The second clip shows Bowie giving a quick lesson to the boys in how to Keep Time
This photo was sent over by the Placebo camp as a potential cover for the new Placebo/David Bowie Enhanced CD EP 'Without You I'm Nothing.'
Here is a short sample of the track Without You I'm Nothing.
As always, you can check up on Placebo at their official website: http://www.placebo.co.uk.
Thanks to Virgin and Hut records for the track ;)
