The first track from the soon-to-be-released “Both Directions At Once: The Lost Album

This downtown queen had mixed emotions viewing the temporary Bowie takeover of NoHo’s Broadway/Lafayette subway station. The exhibit shares the corporatizing vibe of the Bowie-vetted/organized show now at the Brooklyn Museum (both are sponsored by Spotify), and conjured a sensation last felt in the late 80s, when witnessing my first Frida Kahlo refrigerator magnet.

A lady can’t exactly argue against the branded experience on behalf of an artist who once sold Bowie Bonds, and the installation does more than advertise–laying claim to Bowie the New Yorker with carefully sourced, sometimes humorous, not overly glossed archival evidence. And still.

Bowie’s ghost can’t seem to shake (or actively courts) that leper messiah/man who sold the world thing, and given my deep admiration for his work, I resent feeling a church pew has been slid beneath my butt cheeks. Perhaps it’s time to share the air with some living–and female and/or non-white–artists.

Robins trying out my office window mirrored me, flying off with bits I’d unearthed as I cleared years of debris from our neglected yard. Witness three days of clearing, already minus the huge tree branches that took two people to saw and drag. I believe we’re ready to garden!
