She Is Iman…You Should Listen To Her
Thursday, July 6th, 2006

Iman appeared on the Tyra Banks show on Tuesday, July 4 to share some makeup tips with Tyra and her audience. She also took the opportunity to promote her makeup line Iman, which is wonderful by the way, and to mention what David is up to. After Iman’s tips to the audience, Tyra asked her how David was doing and what he was up to. Iman replied that at the moment he was at home babysitting Lexi. She left him for the afternoon with lots of stickie-notes around the house. Tyra’s last question for Iman was what David’s greatest weakness is with Lexi. Iman said laughingly that he says yes to everything. That statement is still cracking me up two days later.

For those ladies who didn’t get the chance to see the show and want to know Iman’s tips, here they are. Her first tip was to start with foundation makeup, the most important type of makeup. She said that every woman should test out three shades close to their skin color down on their jawline. Whichever color that you don’t see is the proper color for you. Her second tip was that every woman should wear lipgloss. Third and last tip, every woman should wear bronzer on her cheeks. Her exact words were, “J.Lo didn’t become J.Lo without bronzer.”

The Gallery Is Now Up
Wednesday, July 5th, 2006

Our gallery is now back up after our disastrous loss of data a couple of months ago. I have pictures from every era of Bowie’s career organized into folders to reflect the eras. There are over 1000 pictures in there, so I have not yet had a chance to edit all of the captions for all of the pictures. In the captions and/or description I will try to reflect the event at which the picture was taken and/or who took the picture. However, I do not have information as to who took the picture for well over two-thirds of the pictures in the gallery. If anyone sees a picture that either belongs to them or that they can verify the source for, then please contact me with the information. If you wish to have your picture removed, I will do that as well. The gallery is a work in progress and will be until every picture has a credit attached to it, so please bear with me. Furthermore, if you have any pictures that are not already featured and would like to see them added, then feel free to send those along as well. Your Webmistress thanks you.

The Thin White Duke Will Not Lead You Astray
Monday, July 3rd, 2006

Stuff.co.nz has a great article about TV On The Radio. As I’m sure you’ve heard, TV On The Radio is one of Bowie’s newest favorite bands, along with the Secret Machines and the Arctic Monkeys. Anyway, I had the privilege of seeing TVOTR support Bauhaus and Nine Inch Nails on the With Teeth Tour at the Hi Fi Buys Amphitheater in Atlanta on June 7. I thought they were fantastic. They did a thirty-minute set with songs from their album Return From Cookie Mountain. I highly suggest you check them out.
