There is a new compilation of David Bowie mash-ups and remixes out for Bowie fans to acquire. The latest addition to the ever-growing list of covers, remixes, and mash-ups is Ziggy Stardust Remixed gathered by DJ BC. You can download the album at the Ziggy Stardust Remixed website. Prefixmag posted a review of the album, if you’re interested.
My take on the album? There is a lot of good stuff on there. Stardust Kids is hands down the best song on the album. I’m going to blast it in my car with the windows rolled down at least once a day for the next two weeks. The other fun ones were Starman (ATOM’s Space Funk Journey), Soul Love (ATOM’s Pink Innards Mix), Easy Hypocrites, and Five Years (World Famous Audio Hacker’s Brainache Mix). But nothing else on the album touches Stardust Kids.Posted in Circle Of Friends, More To Own, News, Opinions | Comments Off on New Ziggy Stardust Remix
Entertainment Weekly website is featuring seventeen behind-the-scenes portraits taken from Clay Enos’ photography book from the upcoming Watchmen movie. The portraits show the main characters of the movie, a few essential supporting characters, and a couple of bit players in costume. Among the bit players are a couple of actors dressed as David Bowie and Mick Jagger. This makes the second nod to Bowie in the film.
On a side note, when I saw Matt Frewer photographed as Edward Jacobi I finally realized that the actor that plays Taggart in Eureka is the same dude that plays the Trashcan Man in The Stand. Hello, I’m clueless. That’s the type of useless stuff that I usually know! I need to spend less time working and more time boning up on my pop culture knowledge. One day I’ll need to save the planet from an alien invasion by winning at a trivia game.Posted in Circle Of Friends, News, Opinions | 3 Comments »
