I had to cram so many things to store everything in there...
BowieNet is very proud to announce a most fitting tribute to thirty glorious years of Ziggy Stardust in the shape of our very own Ziggy Stardust 30th Anniversary website. This new site is a quite wonderful place to explore, jam-packed with the sights and sounds of everything that was, and is, Ziggy Stardust.
Here you can listen to snippets of the songs that make up the 30-year-old masterpiece, whilst viewing images from the tours, looking at album cover outtakes, dressing Ziggy in any one of his magnificent costumes, reading reviews of the album, and much, much, more. You can even contribute your own thoughts on Ziggy and see them become twinkling stars for everyone else to share.
Here's just one of many of David's own thoughts on Ziggy, taken from the site:
"[Ziggy] ...was definitely a reaction to late '60s seriousness, and the real murky quality that rock was falling into. I think a bunch of us adopted the opposite stance. I remember at the time saying that rock must prostitute itself. And I'll stand by that. If you're going to work in a whorehouse, you'd better be the best whore in it." (1991)
This beautifully designed site really is a treasure trove, and without giving away all of the contents, (it really is fun to explore for yourself) I can tell you that there are also some great downloadable backgrounds, and three very entertaining screensavers that make leaving your mouse alone a pleasure of anticipation!
This magnificent construction has been created by Mach18 for Ultrastar & Team Encounter, by a brilliant team of designers and programmers too numerous to mention here. (Check the credits page for a full breakdown)
I'll leave you with a screen grab of a Ziggy I have created in the Curtain Call section, this is just one of hundreds of possible combinations, but was dressed particularly with Susans in mind... I think you'll get the picture.
Go check out the site for yourself by clicking on the "ENTER SITE" screen grab above, but be warned, it's highly addictive... I've been lost in there since Monday! };-)
