The Age of Bowie | Paul Morley

Twitter post often attributed to Simon Pegg, but original source was somebody else.
“If you're ever sad, just remember the world is 4.543 billion years old and you somehow managed to exist at the same time as David Bowie.”

Cinfhen Brilliant 🤩 3mo
AnansiGirl @Cinfhen no idea who the person is, but they wrote a great memorable quote dedicated to Bowie. 👩🏻‍🎤 3mo

Pickpick

The author's shocking indictment of the Australian education system notwithstanding, I loved this book. It's not deep and meaningful, being an alphabetically arranged series of factoids, but it is colourful and vibrant, thanks to Libby VanderPloeg's gorgeous illustrations. While I've seen this in stores shelved with children's books, references to Bowie's drug taking and sex life mean it's definitely not suitable for young readers.

CarolynM I'm intrigued. How does the Australian education system come up in a book of factoids about David Bowie? 5mo
Bookwomble @CarolynM The author is Australian, and has a weak grasp on elementary astronomy and 20th Century wartime history. I 'blurbed' about a couple of gaffs he made that set my teeth on edge 😬 I'm probably being grossly judgemental! 😁 5mo
CarolynM I hadn't seen your earlier blurbs. I agree he's ignorant. What is wrong with the editors - is there no basic fact checking anymore? I hope the next book by an Australian that you read changes your view about our education.🙂 5mo
Bookwomble @CarolynM Poor editing,too, you're right. Doubtless their teachers would be appalled, too 😄 5mo

How cool are these prints?! I love David Bowie more than most other things, so I‘d love these on my wall! 👩‍🎤👨‍🎤⚡️🏳️‍🌈🌈

MySharonaK Gorgeous 😍 5mo
Connster @MySharonaK Isn‘t it cool?! I really want it on my wall! The guy who designs them on Etsy does lots of different artists and albums...I could easily spend a fortune in his store! 5mo
MySharonaK @Connster oh wow I definitely want this on my wall as well. Bowie ∞ 5mo
