High Line Festival

I got really excited today when I learned about the High Line Festival at the DavidBowie.com website. I mean, I was ready to book tickets to New York and put a note in my calendar to buy tickets for the show when they go on sale.
But then I looked at the artist list and he’s not actually playing. I’m sure he’d be around, but, nah, I don’t think I’d really run into him, or if I did, it would be one of those 30 seconds of panic.

So, no, not for me. But I love how young he looks on the home page – it’s the first picture in the montage so if you missed it, try refreshing the page. He does not look like this now!

I think this is a more current picture:

Hey, let’s face it, he’s 60.

The other thing that makes me laugh is his bio. Isn’t this just the funniest summation of his career?

“Between the late 60s and the mid-70s, he experimented with multi-media, also recording the albums The Man Who Sold The World, Space Oddity, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, Diamond Dogs, Station to Station and Young Americans.”

As if recording his albums were an afterthought. Heh.
Oh well, I guess I’ll just keep dreaming about couldabeens.

    Wow! I checked your page on Saturday and haven’t had another chance til now. Man, have I missed out on a lot;)

    I TOTALLY noticed that youthful picture when I saw the ad too. HAHAHA And the bio is so lame. But go David and your mad curating skills!

    For the record, when I had my date with David Bowie, he looked like the first picture, not the second picture. 🙂

    FYI, in the current issue of People (with the VT massacre on the cover) there is a full-page Highline Festival ad on page 54. Certainly adds some beauty to an otherwise sad issue.
