Withdrawn Diamond Dogs Fetches Record Price On Ebay

on February 19, 2003

The magic combination of RCA logo and dog's cock intact.

So you scream out of line "I want you! I need you!"...

A copy of the withdrawn version of the original RCA Diamond Dogs album has sold for an astonishing $3,550.00 on ebaY. (Thanks to BowieNetter DEmerson for the original pointer.) The controversial sleeve is very rarely seen at auction, most likely because the few copies out there are already in the heavily guarded collections of those in a position to afford one.

Here's a bit from the seller's description of this particular copy:

Vip Tibet Tickets, One Very Last Pair

on February 19, 2003

Two final seats with clearest views...

Thanks to a deadbeat bidder (Can you believe some people? This is for charity for goodness sake!), a pair of the previously auctioned VIP tickets to the Tibet House Benefit Concert in New York City have now been re-listed on ebaY. There are two full days left for this auction, and here's a reminder of what the auction package includes:

Two adjacent tickets within rows A-101 thru A-110
Access to an exclusive buffet dinner the night of the show for both ticket holders

All proceeds from these ticket auctions will benefit the Tibet House.

Darkness And Disgrace Bowienet Night This Saturday

on February 18, 2003

Des de Moor and Russell Churney by Total Blam Blam. I should

just me being a bit mischievous. Well if Q can do it to The Man!

One more, weekend, of lights and evening faces...

A final reminder about the BowieNet night performance of Darkness and Disgrace, this coming Saturday February 22nd. This is the penultimate show, and the run will close after Sunday's performance. A few of you have caught Darkness and Disgrace for the first time during the current run, and to save me carping on about how good it is yet again, BowieNetter

Db Ban, Plus Major Tom's Return Cancelled In New Journal

on February 18, 2003

"Bet your life he's putting us on..." An imaginary screenshot from a
TOTPs broadcast that should have been, back in September 1972.

I saw you watching from the stairs...

In his latest journal, David admits to not really knowing too much about his own 'stuff'... Particularly with regard to the BBC's opinion of the above video. He also recounts a recent meeting with a certain actor/director who left David nonplussed with a proposed "script" for 2003: A Space Oddity. Click on the image above before I give it all away.

Scary Monsters And Roddy Frame In Mojo

on February 17, 2003

He opened strange doors that we'd never close again...

The wonderfully Punk-heavy March issue of MOJO magazine has a few Bowie bits worth a mention here. In the regular Last Night A Record Changed My Life feature, a full page is given over to Roddy Frame (Aztec Camera) to explain why Scary Monsters is an album so important to him. Here's the opening paragraph:

If there's ever a Bowie stalker I'll be the prime suspect. I'm always obsessing over his records, and the couple of hundred quid I've spent on them has been a great investment.
