The androgyny, all that shapeshifting . . . Ziggy Stardust, Space Oddity, The Man Who Fell to Earth.
Even the International Space Station offers tribute:
Somehow I doubt it. The massive creativity was just too constant, exploratory, fearless, collaborative, far-reaching, all-embracing, ever-evolving. And yes, conscious, even in his dying, perfectly timed to the release of final album Blackstar: David Bowie disincorporated his way.
So fascinating, so huge, so out-of-this-world intense. Which makes me wonder, again: Was/is David Bowie an ET? Could any mere human have done what he did with such regularity, verve, and finesse? If not, I can’t wait to meet some ETs.
