Forgot to post this last night. Just when you think Jens can’t get any cooler, there’s this.

I’m generally not a fan of traditional TV advertising for a variety of reasons (which is ironic given I’ve worked in and out of the “industry”).

That said, the always awesome pro cyclist Jens Voigt in a German commercial? Oh Hella Ha!

David Bowie. Serious Badass.
The Museum of Arts & Design in NYC is presenting “David Bowie, Artist:”
"a multi-platform retrospective re-framing Bowie’s daring, multi-discipline career as that of an artist working primarily in performance.  From his roots in such performance-based practices as cabaret, mime, and avant-garde theater, to Ziggy Stardust, his revolutionary tour that synthesized theater, music, and contemporary art into a rock spectacle, as well as his innovative video collaborations, and his work in cinema and theater, David Bowie, Artist presents Bowie as one of the most iconoclastic cultural producers of the 20th century."
And my head exploded! Guess I know where I’ll be spending my June nights this Summer as they’re screening most of the movies he’s appeared in. “The Hunger”, “Basquiat”, and “Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence” are faves. 
Who’s your favorite Bowie? Andro Hippie Bowie? Ziggy Stardust? Aladdin Sane?Diamond Dogs Bowie? Thin White Duke? Berlin Bowie? Scary Monsters Bowie? Let’s Dance Bowie? Tin Machine Bowie?

My personal fave is Berlin Bowie (“Heroes”).

David Bowie - Heroes

Part two of “The Berlin Trilogy." There’s so much to write about this song yet it’s all inadequate as "Heroes" has a million layers (The Cold War, Love, The Berlin Wall, Hope, Loss, Desperation, etc.). This iconic song and video are just perfection.

"I…I wish I could swim…like the dolphins…like dolphins can swim…"

David Bowie - Boys Keep Swinging - Lodger

Part three of “The Berlin Trilogy." This song and the video for "Boys Keep Swinging" still crack me up from the obviously ironically sexist lyrics to the video’s Bowie in drag as a brunette, redhead, and blonde…a matronly blonde with a cane who blows a kiss to the camera at the end. Brilliantly subversive for U.S. sensibilities at the time. 

The Lodger “LP” was interesting as “Berlin Bowie” incorporated a lot of Turkish melodies throughout while Germany was (still is) coming to grips with Turkish immigration (via “guest workers”) and Germans of Turkish decent.
