Quote of the Day

Found this in an old file of odds and ends, dated June 13, 2001. Not sure of the source.

"We're living in an age of chaos and fragmentation, and we should grab it positively and not be scared of it and not see it as the destruction of a society, but the material from which we rebuild a society. It is discomforting to see people sorting through the wreckage and trying to pull out absolutes again. That's really troubling. It just becomes so intolerant, and that's not what we want. That's not what we want, is it?" --David Bowie

I'm listening to Bowie right now. The Earthling album.

Lou Anders said...

One of his Top Five I'd say, along with Low, Diamond Dogs, Hunky Dory, and Ziggy.

Total agreement here. I think Ziggy is my fave, as well as the live concert. I do like Heathen, but the best thing about Reality was another tour.

Lou Anders said...

I agree. I enjoyed Reality, but found Heathen much stronger.
