We interrupt our slow-moving series covering our most interesting albums of 2008 to bring you some breaking news: four years after serious artery and heart problems almost felled our hero, David Bowie is back in the studio in Berlin working on a new album (no release date scheduled). ::SQUEEE::

Now I am as happy as a little girl!

Here’s a recent picture from 2008, and as you can see he’s lost the puffiness that he'd gained after the heart attack circa 2006 and is now once again looking every inch the James Bond/Doctor Who villain that he truly is.

In other Bowie news, I am much amused by this article’s attempt to blame Bowie for the credit crunch -- yes, Bowie -- by claiming he had the idea first! Genius!

You fell for the Bowie Twitter rumo[u]r??! Haw! Haw! Haw! Wotta sap! 5'll get you ten that nothing materializes from this no doubt spurious claim! Besides - look what happened when he DID collaborate with Eno again! You can't go home again - even this guy!

I have long felt that we have heard the last of Mr. Bowie, painter and investor. After all, it's now going on six years from his last waxing and he's entitled to rest on his laurels, as far as I'm concerned.

That said, if he ever records a new album I want it ALL to be like "Bring Me The Disco King" from "Reality!" He always says that one song in particular points the direction forward and I would pay good money for more actual jazz in this vein from Dame D.

From the not so anonymous Mark Glenn:

If you need a really interesting David Bowie picture, check out this one:
Ziggy picture

It's from his 1972 album "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars" and was published after winning first place in Out.com's "100 Greatest, Gayest Albums (of All Time)" contest.

Um... Not that there's anything wrong with that.
