Aug-18-08  Jim Bartle: If it's Sam, I understand why he has so few games--always injured.

  perfidious: A collaboration with Osborne might have proven interesting.

  HeMateMe: A Berlin inspired Berlin?
Jan-11-16  Bobby Fiske: David Bowie playing chess on a film set (Hunger - a vampire movie which probably nobody has watched):

  HeMateMe: I saw it on vid, Bowie was pretty good as the ancient vampire. The film had a controversial lesbian love scene with Susan Sarandon and Catherine Deneuve, the French beauty.

It was controversial in 1982; nowadays you could show the same thing at 10:00am after Sesame street and no one would bat an eyelash.

  perfidious: <HMM> Ah, how mores here in America have changed!
Jan-12-16  Tomlinsky: Time...
He's waiting in the wings
He speaks of senseless things
His script is you and me, Boy.

  HeMateMe: Perf--I think it's MTV that changed things--look at some of those music videos! They're like mini R-rated movies, at least the R rated sex scenes in the movies of my teen-dom. Once MTV and VHS-one had half nude girls gyrating in see through underwear 24/7 it became permissible to show any movie at any time of the day.

Oct-09-17  WorstPlayerEver: I don't know which hand Bowie held his cigarettes in, but one of the pics is mirrored. I assume his right hand.
