Nah, just make sure you have a water for every drink. You'll be fine. Also, clear liquor will treat you better the next day.
Yeah, I know, there were some circumstances. ie: the next morning i had to spend 2 hours hung over in a hot car, and I think thats where it happened.

Oops, wrong thread.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

yup. i just got the Next Day extras box, and that 2nd disc is as strong as the album proper, albeit shorter. i now get why some folk had been saying The Next Day is one of David's greatest albums.

Yep that's it mate. That second disc carries some really strong material.

I'm not having any Kooks criticism like I took in the Top 5 thread, love this alternate version...

I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

Nothing wrong with "Kooks" but I still feel it belongs with his earlier material. It's a far cry from "Queen Bitch".

I frequently make themed compilations for my friends and I've just been commissioned to do a Bowie one. It will necessarily have to be two discs, but even that is going to be very difficult.

I agree so many awesome songs.

So...VH, Jr. is doing a "career" project in class. This week, he wants to be an astronaut. So I told him that to be an official astronaut, he needed to memorize the words to Space Oddity. Am I a terrible parent or the best parent ever?

You knew the answer when you asked the question.

By the way, I sometimes play the first disc of a Bowie singles collection for Jackson when he's going to bed. He calls the whole CD "Ground Control."
