Stardust

I just had the melancholy notion that someday, after David Bowie dies, a movie will be made called Stardust. E wondered who they'd get to play "young Bowie" and if that actor is even in show business yet. I know he had a heart attack a while back, but as far as I know he's in relatively decent health now. It could be a while.

Anyway, I hope it'll do the man justice.

I just finished a newish (but very badly edited) Bowie bio, and was thinking the same thing. Weird.

Jonathon Rhyss Meyers is perfect, but the moment IS passing him by. Hope it continues to.

Altho, I would like to see the Ziggy Stardust saga brought to the screen while David is around to supervise.

I'm not so sure. Meyers is a bit too conventionally attractive, IMHO. David is gorgeous, but not quite pretty.

But I entirely agree that he'd make a great creative consultant on his own life's story.

Well, there's already Velvet Goldmine.

Right, but I am thinking of something that's more of a straight up biography (not a glam rock amalgam). And more for the masses. That's the sort of thing that comes out within a year of a mega-star's death.

You busy this week?

Not specifically. I have resolved to "get back to work" starting today, but I'm not sure what that consists of. We got about twice as much snow down here as you did, so it will probably be another day or two before I'm willing to venture out, but I owe my mom a visit, so I'll be up there sometime this week.

Here I'm thinking maybe Bowie should have been in the movie called Stardust that's already been made. Or is that thinking too labyrinthine?

Yeah, there's the small matter that there is already a Stardust, but I don't think that'll stop them from making the Bowie movie under that name.

Recent pic of Bowie.
In the last couple of days, I was looking up something on Wikipedia about Bowie and came across this fairly recent pic of him and the Mrs.

Yeah, he pretty much looks his age, but he's still handsome, IMO.
