Gallery is sorted!
Saturday, March 31st, 2007

Thanks to a late night at work last night with nothing to do, the gallery is now complete! All pictures have been given descriptive captions and placed in the correct albums. Where I could find photographic credit for the pictures, I placed it either in the caption or the description. If you wish to use any of my personal pictures or the ones by Kyle Burkhart in the Heathen and Outside galleries (respectively) you must email me for permission.  Additionally, if there is any incorrect information attached to the pictures, please email me and let me know.  Some of these pictures I’ve had for a long time and I’ve not always been as compulsive as I am now with photo credits and events and some I just could not find sufficient information about.  My contact information can be found in the About Us section of this site.

Enjoy the pretty pictures!

Tickets On Sale for the High Line Festival
Saturday, March 31st, 2007

Tickets for the High Line Festival went on sale yesterday. Those wanting to attend the performances will need to buy each ticket separately through Ticketbastard, erm, Ticketmaster. The prices for each performance are pretty reasonable, but be ready to fork out some extra cash for all of the extra charges that Ticketmaster lumps on top of each ticket. A portion of the proceeds will go to benefit the Friends of the High Line. If anyone is going, feel free to leave a comment and let us know.

Justification for the Multiple Venues of the High Line Festival
Tuesday, March 27th, 2007

For those of you, like me, who looked at the venue list for the High Line Festival and wondered to yourself, “This is scattered across multiple venues? How exactly is this considered a festival associated with the High Line?” and were too lazy to look at the geography, David Bowie himself answered part of that question on a post to the Bowienet message board. He says what “holds this particular festival together is that all the venues are on or follow a geographic route in New York called the High Line (an old overhead railway). Hence, the High Line Festival.”

So there you have it. As disgruntled as I am about the conspicuous lack of a live performance by the man himself despite his initial announcement, he is sticking to the original geographic plan. From the original news item on Bowienet, “[t]he 10-day marathon event will take place at street level and at neighbouring venues alongside the High Line.”

Don’t Wait Up for Omikron 2
Monday, March 26th, 2007

IGN picked up a German blog site’s interview with Quantic Dream COO Guillaume de Fondaumière which revealed that Omikron 2 may be another 2 years in the making. Referring to O2, Guillaume said, “We have started to work on this very innovative and very challenging project. However, you shouldn’t expect this title anywhere before 2009.” He went on to say that Quantic Dream would be releasing a new title before then (safe to assume it’s Heavy Rain), but that Infraworld, another Quantic Dream game which had been in the works, has since been cancelled.

High Line Festival Line Up Announced
Sunday, March 25th, 2007

Highline Festival PosterAt long last, the line up for David Bowie’s High Line Festival was posted on Bowienet today. Eight musical acts will perform over the eleven day festival spanning May 9 through 19 including:

The Arcade Fire
The Polyphonic Spree
Daniel Johnston
Bang on a Can All Stars
The Legendary Stardust Cowboy
The Secret Machines

Five other performers and visual artists are on the list as well, with comedy by Ricky Gervais. Also, in the film category Clearview Chelsea Cinemas will have “BOWIE’S PICKS 10 Spanish Language Classics” from May 11 to 18. Since the actual 7 acre High Line Park will not be opening until 2008, the majority of the festival events will be happening at performance halls in the area such as Radio City Music Hall, Madison Square Garden, Hammerstein Ballroom, Irving Plaza, the High Line Ballroom and others. Tickets go on sale this Friday, May 30th.

The post by Total Blam also mentions that David hopes to add a few more artists and “support arts” which haven’t been announced yet. It’s recommended to check for updates, although there continues to be a wide expanse of negative space there today.

Follow Up on the Ziggy Stardust Costume Auction
Wednesday, March 21st, 2007

Ziggy Stardust costume up for auctionAs a follow up to our previous post about the Ziggy Stardust costume which Christie’s will be auctioning on April 26th, a new article on has shed some light on which costume in particular will be on sale:

Designed by Freddi Buretti, the blue Ziggy Stardust outfit exposes a leg and a shoulder and fits tightly everywhere else. On the belly and part of a thigh are decor resembling flames in orange and red.

According to the article, the costume will be on display at Christie’s 85 Old Brompton Road address, from today until an hour before the auction. Christie’s doesn’t seem to have any additional information about costume on their website yet, but they do have two paintings from David Bowie’s D-HEAD series available for 1,500 to 2,000 pounds which you are also welcome to buy for us. 😉

David Bowie Song Featured in Propel Commercial
Tuesday, March 20th, 2007

Propel Fitness Water has aired a new commercial featuring Under Pressure.  The commercial opens with a giant trash monster running down the street.  As the monster runs, he loses bit of trash off his body and falls apart to reveal a man underneath.  Once free of the garbage, the man stops and takes a swig of Propel Fitness Water – all to the soundtrack of samples from Under Pressure.  I suppose the garbage monster is supposed to symbolize all the stress and baggage clinging to the man that fall away as he de-pressurizes by running.  You can view the entire commercial at the Propel Fitness Water site.
