Z is for Ziggy Stardust

It’s the last day of the #AtoZChallenge, and boy, has this month wiped me out. There’s a reason I don’t blog every day, guys. PHEW!

But I’m glad I participated – I made some new blogging friends, I discovered a whole whack of cool blogs that I hadn’t heard of before, and I learned to think and write faster than I could before. Kind of like NaNoWriMo for bloggers.

So, how about some fun to finish off the month?

David Bowie is one of my favorite musical artists: he’s versatile, he’s way out of the box, and at his peak, he completely gave himself over to his art. And even though a lot of that went along with giving himself over to another thing entirely, which is a thing that I don’t at all support and which is really a subject for another blog, you’ve got to give him props for opening the door for people like Madonna, Lady Gaga, and Nikki Minaj to go beyond the music when it came to the expression of their ideas. David Bowie didn’t just have a musical brand – he WAS his brand.

So let’s hear it for his most famous alter-ego, Ziggy Stardust. Because we all need a little David Bowie in the morning.


  1. Believe me when I say I don't need any Ziggy Stardust in the morning or any other time. C'mon , you can't be surprised.

  2. Congratulations on your A-Z finale- you finished with a marvellous showman! :-)

  3. What a neat blog idea! I was just looking for all things Ziggy Stardust!! I loved this album so much.
