‘Shapes of Things’ – David Bowie

Thinking of Jenny

Well, I’ve opened all my pressies and they’re all ace and vital, my man! 

ARYADAR say such!

Just to brag and feel skill, I will now list all the Bowie records I own, cos I’m chuffed, etc.

LPs: Hunky Dory, The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars, Aladdin Sane, Pin-Ups, The World Of David Bowie, Diamond Dogs, David Live, Portrait Of A Star (Box-Set of: Low, “Heroes” and Lodger), Ziggy Stardust: The Motion Picture, Love You Till Tuesday and Tonight.

12-inch singles: ‘Underground’.

7-inch singles: ‘Space Oddity’, ‘Under Pressure’, ‘Modern Love’ and ‘Absolute Beginners’.

Brilliant, eh?  I thought so!

A man with scruffy stubble in a big, broad-rimmed hat…

My fuckin’ cold’s getting’ worse…

A message from Santa:


(But the first ‘A’ is drawn like a toilet wall penis and the two ‘O’s are drawn as breasts on a grinning, naked woman with a full pubic bush and a demon’s pointy tail…)


‘Weeping Wall’ – David Bowie

Dr Bastard (Flash) just rang me and he’s well okay!  Gottaringhimbacklatah!

Ritcherd Winterfood’s 1980 Kicks Show… 

The Queer of the Spider?  No…

I am… unremarkable.  That is me.

Oh, god, I’m not, am I?



The Christmas No.1: ‘Caravan of Love’The Housemartins

Alison was so good to me.  But I was moody.  And just like my relationship with BMW, I don’t know why I fouled it up.  I was happy then…

To be with Jenny, I ended the relationship Alison and I had both wanted so much.  Was it all worth it?  Why did I do it?  Do I have the right to foul up people’s lives?

My No.1: ‘Wave’ – David Sylvian
