Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Photography on Wednesday 14 August 2013

Sometime back, when we put up a post about the passports of famous people, someone remarked of the Thin White Duke’s passport photo, ‘Does this man ever take a bad picture?’ Looking at Bowie’s unflappably cool mugshot from 1976 when he got busted for possessing marijuana, the answer is no.

By Annie Churdar in New Art on Tuesday 9 April 2013

David Bowie was king of dodging stupid questions and traps during interviews. I’ve always admired his insane media skills. When asked if he thought his music was any good, he’d frequently point out that he was actually a painter, not a musician. And guess what? He was telling the truth. Here are a few of his […]

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Music on Wednesday 3 April 2013

One time I was suckered into watching 2001: A Space Odyssey. I sat through hours of it, hoping it would all be worth while, hoping it would all make sense.  Finally, hours later the movie ended and I was still in the dark. The movie was completely lost on me. But then, year later someone […]

David Bowie As Everyone Tumblr

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Trends on Saturday 17 November 2012

Halt your brains now, because here’s something deep: what if David Bowie was omnipresent? Hell, what if he was… omni-person? In steps this blog that puts Bowie’s face where it belongs: on everyone and everything. He’s Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, a ‘sexy sexy’ cactus, crystal balls, Han Solo, insectile demons, The Cure’s Robert Smith and all of Motley Crue. Some of these Photoshopped efforts are frankly quite terrifying.
