#BIN A esta hora, #V1brraXX10nes, la música de la posguerra... Este año, en junio, cumplirá medio siglo "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars" de #DavidBowie, el álbum definitivo en su vida y también el que casi acaba con ella, como si tuviera vida propia
#BIN #ZiggyStardust fue el álbum fundacional del #GlamRock, más allá de las prendas femeninas, maquillaje y manierismos que anteriormente habían presentado #Sweet, #TRexy #Slade. Fue un álbum conceptual, lleno de letras inteligentes y con músicos que se harían legendarios.
#BIN #ZiggyStardust era un "extraterrestre bisexual", por lo que yo digo, inauguró el período espacial de #Bowie, más que #SpaceOddity (1969). El solo de guitarra de #MickRonson al final de este tema (cerca del minuto 3:25) es único, imposible de olvidar.

Man, @ReelzChannel #Autopsy is one of the cheesiest conspiracy series I've ever seen. I watched the one about #DavidBowie yesterday, and the grasping for "other causes" besides cancer contributing to Bowie's death reached truly ridiculous proportions. 1/
So was the part in #Autopsy speculating that Bowie had somehow "controlled" the time of his death so that Blackstar could be released before his death. 2/
I will say that I had never seen the shots from his appearance at the Lazarus premier five weeks before Bowie died. Contrary to what the show claims, from what I saw Bowie most definitely did NOT look healthy then. 3/

David Bowie was born 74yrs ago today & died almost exactly 5yrs ago

Six days after his death, we organised an unofficial wake fror #Bowie.

900 people filled the Union Chapel for a 5 hour gig

More than 100 musicians & bands performed 33 #DavidBowie songs
Each performer or band played one #Bowie song

There were a number of highlights, but this version of Sweet Thing by @davidmcalmont, accompanied by @cliffordslapper on the piano, was a spine-tingling.

Watch the full version on @YouTube
I booked the venue on Monday

The press release went out Tuesday

On Wednesday, we sold out tickets (£3 each) in 35 minutes!

The gig was in four days & we had NO acts. NO team

But they’d come

For the love of #Bowie, they’d come

1) #COVID1984 makes it totes obvious that we're in midst of weird globalist mega-psyop. Power of #occultelite and #DeepState cronies to control global economy, politics and popular culture is jaw-dropping. And they've long been up to srsly sinister shit in all those fields.
2) Unless you're an utter moron, odds are you're "awakening" to hidden forces shaping much of what happens in the world. And these occult (hidden) puppet masters manipulate our perception of reality via news media with skewed reporting, etc. Also via pop music and movies.
3) Disturbing fact is that #DeepState denizens (esp from CIA) have long been applying their vast knowledge of #mindcontrol to task of conditioning the public via Hollywood in particular. There's a good doco on this called #OutofShadows. Worth a watch.

Someone from either #NIAID @NIH or #NCID @CDCgov should educate #TantrumP2020, Global #COVIDIOT No.1, #Virology/#VirusEpidemiology/#SARS_COV_2 #101 to stop the #SHIT that's coming out of his upper orifice!!

Just my luck to switch on the TV at approximately 11.00 a.m. #MYT, to have it already tuned to #AlJazeera channel LIVE, at the exact moment #TantrumP2020, Global #COVIDIOT No. 1, was uttering his SHIT about #COVID19usa, caused by his SO-CALLED #WuhanVirus!

#Hilo🧵Hoy se conmemora el #DiaMundialDelRock y la celebración fue instaurada en recuerdo al proyecto #LiveAid que el 13 de julio de 1985 recaudó millones de dólares para ayudar a los afectados por la hambruna en Etiopía y aquí recordamos los conciertos que hermanaron al mundo.👇 Image
🤘🎶 Bob Geldof, líder de los 'Boomtown Rats' y protagonista de la película ‘The Wall’, a finales de 1984 lanzó 'Band Aid', un grupo con la mayor parte de las estrellas del rock inglés, y en noviembre grabaron la canción 'Do they know it’s Christmas?'.
🗓️💵 Ante el éxito de la iniciativa, Geldof se propuso organizar un par de conciertos, uno en Londres y otro en Filadelfia, para recaudar más dinero y la fecha fue el 13 de julio de 1985. Image

Two of my favorite people collided worlds when @netw3rk read @econoar 's tweet about the @NBA's @SDinwiddie_25's tokenizing his contract on #Ethereum on the Emmy Award Winning #nbadesktop @ringernba.

What a time to be alive!

Thread 1/many
The great @ReformedBroker got the details mostly right, but oversold risk involved for easy Blockchain laughs. @SDinwiddie_25 is turning his contract into a bond, taking the money raised up front, and then paying those who hold the tokens a 2.5% rate until he repays principal.
This has been done before. #DavidBowie (EVER HEARD OF HIM???!!??) did this in the 90's & was met skeptically but ended up being a solid and memorable investment. The ambit of what Bowie wanted to do was much lower than what @SDinwiddie_25's end goals are.

El 8 enero 1947 nacía David Bowie. En este hilo, voy a desvelar todos los secretos de la canción q interpretó junto a Freddie Mercury: "Under Pressure" considerada la mejor línea de bajo de la historia. Desde los cielos, #Queen #FreddieMercury #DavidBowie #Bowie #UnderPressure
En julio de 1981, Queen se encontraba grabando el álbum "Hot Space" en los Estudios Mountain (Montreux - Suiza). En esta localidad no sólo Freddie tenía una residencia, sino q David Bowie se había mudado tb a la zona del Cantón de Vaud. Roger Taylor era amigo de Bowie y le pidió
q se acercara un día x el estudio de grabación a hacerles una visita. Ese día llegó, y sugirieron la idea de hacer una canción juntos. No había tiempo material para crear un tema desde cero, así q mostraron a Bowie alguna maqueta (demo) de las sesiones de "Hot Space". Una de las

So I'm still processing my thoughts about The #CurrentWar.

My immediate reaction upon leaving the theater: This film is custom-made for a crossover between @SocHistTech and History at the Movies (#HATM).

(@HerbertHistory-If this comes to pass, let me know!)

#histSTM (1/17)
A few additional thoughts: The movie makes it very clear that the #CurrentWar was between Edison & Westinghouse.

Yes, Tesla is there too (more on him in a moment), but the system-builders (cf. Hughes) are front and center.

I was also pleasantly surprised to see Mary Stillwell Edison and Marguerite Erskine Walker Westinghouse featured prominently in the film. The latter is actually referred to as George's wife & business partner.

El largometraje animado más antiguo que se conserva es "Las aventuras del príncipe Achmed" (1926), escrito y dirigido por la pionera animadora alemana Lotte Reiniger. Dura 65 minutos, el original estaba coloreado y empleaba una técnica de siluetas móviles que ella inventó. #cine
Las ondas en el vaso de agua fue uno de los efectos especiales más complejos de conseguir en #ParqueJurásico (1993). Tras probar muchas opciones finalmente se hizo haciendo vibrar una cuerda de guitarra bajo el coche.

- El rodaje en Filipinas duró 15 meses
- El material rodado superó las 250 horas
- Francis Ford Coppola se arruinó para acabar la película
- Martin Sheen sufrió un infarto durante el rodaje
- Coppola amenazó con suicidarse 3 veces
- Tardó 4 años en hacerla ImageImageImageImage

My all-time favorite #Christmas song. The message is a beautiful one:
#DavidBowie #BingCrosby #LittleDrummerBoy

"Peace on earth, can it be
Years from now, perhaps we'll see
See the day of glory
See the day when men of good will
Live in peace, live in peace again...
"Every child must be made aware
Every child must be made to care
Care enough for his fellow man
To give all the love that he can..
