To close our week out, we thought we would leave you with a feast for the second-best sense you can engage where David Bowie is concerned: your eyes. Recall that we did make the comparison between Bowie and a Time Lord earlier this week... after viewing these photos, you may come to the same conclusion. So sit back and let us take you through his many regenerations, and don’t forget to have your favorite Bowie album (or film) playing in the background to set the mood. Some of Bowie’s more SFF-minded music videos can be found at the bottom of the post. We know, we’re making you earn them.
Warning: these pictures contain excesses of glitter, tight clothes, cross dressing, hair in all shapes and colors, questionable footwear (featured above), smoking, and even a beard. Yes, you read that right.
For those of you who have been waiting on those music videos, check out the strange Big Brother scenario going on in “Jump They Say”:
And the possible post-apocalyptic future at play in “Heart’s Filthy Lesson”:
Or we could just be purists and enjoy the bleached out glory of “Life On Mars”:
And with that, we bid you good weekend. We’ll meet you at Suffragette City!
