Listening to "Black Star" tonight and looking at the album cover on iTunes.  I was trying to decipher what, if anything, the fragments of stars beneath the black star were. I thought there must be some reason -- Bowie put those shapes there for some reason.  Then I saw they pretty much spell "Bowie."  So sweet.

Check this-- I showed the cover to my wife and she saw this in, like, three seconds.  At least she made me feel better by saying, "well if hadn't said you didn't notice something, I wouldn't have looked."  I can also be thick with the blatantly obvious, at times.  Still--  so cool David Bowie.

And now listening to "Thursday's Child" and looking at the Hours cover and seeing the barcode.  Granted I bought the CD back in the day and didn't study it like I should have.  Bowie.  Having a moment, here...  LOL.

Just listened to Bowie for the past five or so hours and feel amazing-- haven't felt so enveloped in music since discovering U2. I highly recommend anyone who hasn't to go listen to some of his deep-cuts one day, you won't regret it.

I've spent the last few days listening to his "later" material - Outside, Earthling, Heathen, ... hours, Reality, Next Day, Back Star -  and, although I already knew this(!), it is absolutely fantastic. To be at the top of his game for so long is astounding when you compare other bands/artists who have being going so long and seen the quality of new material fluctuate. Truly a one off and it breaks my heart that there won't be a new Bowie LP again.

Bowie was even planning another album after Blackstar, he still thought he'd have a few more months to record.

Exactly! Apparently there are five demo tracks (at least) that were laid down for the next album!

It better be him who prepared it.  I have much higher standards for Bowie then practically anyone else.  If I get the bowie equivalent of the album Michael, I am gonna be quite angry.
