Chameleonic Musician David Bowie Is Constellation Near Mars. David Bowie had several phases and styles in his creation as a musician: MOD (60s) - HIPPIE (60s) Space Oddity - GLAM (1970 - 1974) The Man Who Sold World (1970) Diamond Dogs (1974) - PLASTIC SOUL ( 1975 - 1976) Young Americans (1975) Station to station (1976) - BERLIN (1976 - 1979) Low, "Heroes" and Lodger - NEW ROMANTIC (1980 - 1988) Let's Dance (1983) and two more albums and back to rock with the band Tin Machine - ELECTRONIC (1995 - 2001) Outside (1995) Earthling (1997) - NEOCLÁSSICO (2002 - 2016) Hours (1999) - The Next Day (2013) and Blackstar (2016). His entire Creation as a Musician was guided from the beginning by his continuous quest as a man to attain Divine Enlightenment. And Bowie left all that, duly documented in his vast musical oeuvre. His Life Trajectory was ALL Inscribed in His Musical Work. David Bowie devoted himself to modern occultism. His own definition of himself: "I'm closer to the Golden Dawn Immersed in Crowley's uniform I'm not a prophet or a man of stone Just a mortal with the potential of a superman." - Quicksand. Everything documented from start to "end." With Great Style and Great Elegance. And for ALL that, he was honored with a lightning-shaped constellation. Bowie is now made up of seven stars: Sigma Librae, Spica, Alpha Virginis, Zeta Centauri, SAO 204 132, SAO 241 641 and Beta Sigma Octantis Trianguli Australis. Just as it was drawn on his face on the cover of the album Alladin Sane (1973), and the location chosen for the lightning-shaped constellation, it was very close to Mars, as in the song Life on Mars from the album Hunky Dory (1971). At the request of a radio station in Brussels, the observatory for space studies MIRA (Institute for Astronomical Research of Monterey), registered the constellation in honor of the musician. As I Said, Hamlet, by William Shakespeare: There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy. That's why David Bowie, will forever be in my Gallery, as an example of one of the Most Elegant Men. (To read + Articles 2020, 2021 Click Article Archive, Click the month, scroll down, just read!)

Bob Dylan One of the most influential Singers and Composers Musics Inspired by the muses Polymnia, Erato, Euterpe and Calliope. Folk-rock singer-songwriter Bob Dylan has emerged as one of the most original and influential voices in American popular music. Driven by influences from Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richards and especially Buddy Holly, who influenced him with country western, rock 'n' roll and rhythm and blues, three distinct lines that he intertwined and fused a genre, definitively marking his influences musicals. While attending the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, he began performing folk and country songs at local cafes. In 1960, he dropped out of college and moved to New York, where folk singer Woody Guthrie, his idol, was hospitalized with a rare illness. He became a regular at Greenwich Village; meeting a host of other musicians; and started writing songs and with a surprising rhythm, he made 'Song to Woody', for his sick hero. In 1961, after his performances, he received rave reviews from The New York Times, signing with Columbia Records. The release of 'The Freewheelin 'Bob Dylan' in 1963 marked him as one of the most original and poetic voices in the history of American popular music. The album includes the memorable folk songs from the 60s, 'Blowin 'in the Wind' and 'A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall'. His next album, 'The Times They Are A-Changin', established Dylan as a protest songwriter in the 1960s. A reputation that rose after dating Joan Baez, established icon of the movement, in 1963. Benefiting both artists in their careers musicals. Dylan wrote some of Baez's best-known material and Baez introduced him to thousands of fans through his concerts. In 1964 Dylan performed 200 concerts a year, but grew tired of his role as a protest singer and songwriter. 'Another Side of Bob Dylan' (1964), was a collection of more introspective and personal songs. In 1965 he records the half-acoustic and half-electric album 'Bringing It All Back Home', where he has 'Mr. Tamborine Man', re-recorded by The Byrds, David Crosby said: "When he came to the studio where we were rehearsing and heard us play the song, he was ecstatic. I think hearing our version was part of what made Dylan turn to rock." . Subsequent albums, 'Highway 61 Revisited', which included the seminal rock song 'Like a Rolling Stone' - and the two-disc set 'Blonde on Blonde' (1966), represent Dylan in its most innovative form. With his unmistakable voice and unforgettable lyrics, Dylan has brought the world of music and literature together like no one else. Albums 'John Wesley Harding' (1967) - including 'All Along the Watchtower', later recorded by the great guitarist Jimi Hendrix - and country 'Nashville Skyline' (1969), were smoother than their previous work. 'Self-Portrait' (1970) and 'Tarantula', a collection of writings published in 1971. In 1973, Dylan appeared in Sam Peckinpah's 'Pat Garrett and Billy The Kid', also writing the soundtrack, becoming a hit and included the now classic song, "Knockin 'on Heaven's Door". In 1974, he went on tour again, recording an album with his band, 'The Band', "Planet Waves", becoming his first #1 album of all time. He followed these successes with the celebrated album 'Blood on the Tracks and Desire' (1976), reaching number one as well. 'Desire' included Dylan's song 'Hurricane' about boxer Rubin 'Hurricane' Carter serving life in 1967 for double murder, which many considered wrongful conviction. The song 'Sara' in 'Desire', unsuccessful attempt to regain the separation with his wife Sara Lowndes. In 1979 he declared himself a born-again Christian, Dylan was a Jew. Composing 'The Evangelical' "Slow Train Comming", a commercial success that earned Dylan his first Grammy Award. His religious leanings became less evident in his music. In 1982 he was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. In the 1980s, Dylan toured full time, sometimes with legends such as; Tom Petty, Heartbreakers, Grateful Dead. Notable albums from this period, 'Infidels' (1983), five-disc retrospective, 'Biograph', 'Knocked Out Loaded'; and 'Oh Mercy', which became the best-received album in years. He recorded two albums with the band Traveling Willburys, with George Harrison, with Roy Orbinson, Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne. In 94, he returned to his folk roots, winning the Grammy Award for Best Traditional Folk Album for 'World Gone Wrong'. In 89, he inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. In 1997, the first rock star to receive the Kennedy Center Honors, considered the country's highest award for artistic excellence. The 1997 album 'Times Out of Mind' won three Grammy Awards. He continued his tours, including performing for Pope John Paul II, playing "Knockin'on Heaven's Door". In 99, a tour with Paul Simon. In 2000, he recorded the single 'Things Have Changed' to the soundtrack of the movie, Wonder Boys. The song earned a Golden Globe and an Oscar for Best Original Song. Dylan then took time out of music to tell his life story. Released 'Chronicles: Volume One', the first of a three-book series, in 2004. Dylan gave his first full interview in years for a documentary in 2005. 'No Direction Home: Bob Dylan', directed by Martin Scorsese. In 2006, album 'Modern Times', reaching the top of the charts. A mix of blues, country and folk, praised for its rich sound and imagery, playful and intelligent. He continued to tour throughout the 21st Century and released the album 'Together Through Life' in 2009. In 2010 the album 'The Witmark Demos', followed by a new box titled 'Bob Dylan: The Original Mono Recordings'. In addition, he exhibited 40 of his original paintings for a solo show at the Danish Gallery. In 2011, he released a live album, 'Bob Dylan in Concert-Brandeis University 1963'. In 2012, studio album 'Tempest, Shadows in The Night', followed by an album of covers of American standards in 2015. In 2016, 'Fallen Angels', her 37th studio album, with classic songs from the Great American Sondbook. In 2017, he continued to celebrate the classics with the three-disc album 'Triplicate', featuring 30 American standards, "Stormy Wether", "As Time Goes By", "The Best Is Yet To Come". In addition to winning the Grammy, the Academy and the Golden Globe received the President Barack Obama's 2012 Presidential Medal of Freedom. In 2016, the legendary singer-songwriter also received the Nobel Prize for Literature, for the first time the honor was awarded to a musician. He became the first American to receive the honor since novelist Toni Morrison in 1993, and was praised by the Swedish Academy "for creating new poetic expressions within the great tradition of American song". Dylan returned to the news in 2017 with the box 'Trouble No More' - 'The Bootleg Series Vol. 13/1979-1981. It was announced that his former recording studio in Manhattan's Greenwich Village was being reopened as an upscale apartment building, with lofts available for a minimum of $12,500 a month. Not long after, his bedroom door at the famous Chelsea Hotel was sold at auction for $100,000. In 2018, Dylan was one of the featured artists on the Universal Love EP: Wedding Songs Reimagined. He launched a brand of whiskey called 'Heaven's Door Spirits'. In 2019, release another little heard material with Bob Dylan featuring Johnny Cash - 'Travelin 'Thru, 1967-1969: The Bootleg Series Vol.15. Dylan gave fans a pleasant surprise in 2020, a 17-minute song, 'Murder Most Foul', about the murder of John F. Kennedy, he just said it was 'recorded a while ago'. When not making music, Dylan explores his talent as a visual artist. His paintings appear on the covers of his albums 'Self Postrait' (1970) and 'Planet Waves' (1974), and he has published several books and drawings, as well as exhibited around the world. Bob Dylan cites specific books that gave him a way of looking at life, an understanding of human nature, and a standard for measuring things. He says he took it with him when he started writing the lyrics. And the themes of those books worked on many of his songs, whether intentionally or not. He says he wanted to write songs unlike anything anyone has ever heard, and the themes were key. Books are; Moby Dick, All Quiet on the Western Front and The Odyssey. About 'All Quiet on the Western', he says that he never wanted to read another war novel since he already understood everything with this one. Of Moby Dick, he says, "When Melville gathered all of his Old Testament, biblical references, scientific theories, Protestant doctrines and all that knowledge of the sea and sailing ships and whales into one story, he wouldn't have worried about what it was. means. If a song moves you, that's what matters. I wrote all kinds of stuff in my songs and I'm not going to worry about what it means (like Melville)." He also quoted John Donne, the poet-priest who lived in Shakespeare's time, quoting "John Donne:" The Seats and Abydos of her breasts. Not of two lovers, but of two loves, the nests." Influencing him in love songs and songwriting. Dylan said: "I don't know what that means, but it's good and you want your songs to sound good." The Odyssey', he says; "When Odysseus visits Achilles in the Underworld - Achilles who traded a life filled with peace and contentment for a short one filled with honor and glory. He tells Odysseus that everything was a mistake. "I just died, that's all." There was no honor. No immortality. And if he could, he would choose to go back and be a humble slave to a tenant farmer on Earth instead of being what he is - a king in the land of the dead. That's what songs are too. Our songs are alive in the land of the living. But songs are different from literature. They are meant to be sung, not read. I return once more to 'Homer' who says: "Sing in me, O muse, and through me tell the story." A great contemporary troubadour and one of rock's wisest men, he deserved the "Nobel Prize for Literature".

Eyes Wide Shut Fractal Puzzle Strangely Beautiful Movie Tom Cruise Nicole Kidman Stanley Kubrick started out as a photographer for the New York magazine 'Look'. This explains a lot the perfect framing and stunning photography of his films and the visual and sensory experience we feel. Considered by many to be one of the greatest filmmakers. Reputably obsessive and meticulous, he has overseen, with all the attention to detail, every aspect of his films. A perfectionist, he commanded total control of his films, even the selection of books and newspapers that appeared in the background. His works have a visual and aural clarity, a demanding use of camera work, framing, lighting, positioning, special effects, music etc. Their unfolding narratives subvert traditional cinematic narrative conventions, leaving audiences perplexed. Kubrick's films are challenging because he tells a story in a way we're not used to. Master of narrative subtlety. Kubrick was a lifelong chess player. In Eyes Wide Shut, on each exploration trajectory he reveals unexpected details and layers of meaning, strategic orchestrations within a dream maze. Extraordinary film within its wide scope of themes and subjects. Sex is indeed the focus of the film, but the allusions to class, the world's ruling elite and powerful secret societies are significant. Also allusions that span literature, music, opera, mythology, religion, politics, history, etymology, cinema. Kubrick passed away 5 days after sending the final version to Warner Bros. This was the Master's last movie. The film Eyes Wide Shut was adapted from Traumnovelle, translated from the German means Dream Story, by Arthur Schnitzler, Austria, 1926, set in Vienna. Kubrick, upgraded to Contemporary. Tom Cruise plays Bill Hartford (Dr Bill, reference to a dollar bill), a wealthy New York doctor with an elegant high society clientele and a magnificent apartment on Central Park West, happily married to the beautiful Alice (reference to Alice in "Wonderland" a fairy tale about a privileged girl who is bored with her life and who "crosses the mirror" to end up in Wonderland"), (Nicole Kidman), former art gallery director, now a housewife, and takes care of her daughter. Troubled with each other by their flirtatious behavior, at a beautiful party hosted by an elite patient, Victor Ziegler (Sidney Pollack), and by drinking champagne and cannabis sativa, in home, has a furious fight in which Alice defiantly confesses her lustful thoughts to a naval officer in her past. During the party, Bill and Alice go their separate ways.Alice meets a man named Sandor Szavost, Hungarian, who asks her about Art and the Love of Ovid. Book series, written during ancient Roman times. The first book begins with an invocation to Venus - the planet associated with the goddess of eternal youth, goddess of beauty, fertility and physical love (sex). The star of Venus or Ishtar, appears several times in the film, and in the house and Victor Ziegler, where the party takes place. And Bill is talking to two models who flirt with him and who tell him they want to take him "where the rainbow ends"... Jealousy, Bill then goes on a nocturnal odyssey, in search of extramarital adventures, never accomplished , going through countless ordeals, even ending up in a secret society, uninvited, invading, where he witnesses scenes that shouldn't be profaned and public, in a luxurious house on Long Island. Since he was never initiated into that secret society, Bill shouldn't even have to to know it existed, let alone witness one of his "meetings." So how did he find out about it? Well, a little bird told him. Nick Nightingale At one point during his strange night out, Bill meets his old friend Nick Nightingale , who studied medicine with him, but did not graduate, at a jazz cafe. The professional pianist reveals to Bill that he is sometimes hired by mysterious people to play, blindfolded, at mysterious parties filled with women b onites. This information stirs and intrigues Bill because, since his conversation with his wife, he seems to be looking for some kind of... experience. Nick ends up making a big mistake and agrees to provide Bill with all the information he needs to access the site. A nightingale is the type of bird known to sing at night, just as Nick Nightingale “sings” secret information at the beginning of Bill's odyssey. The password to enter the ritual is “Fidelio”, which means “fidelity”, the main theme of the film. More importantly, as Nightingale points out, "Fidelio" is the name of an opera written by Beethoven... After getting the details of Nightingale, Bill rents a costume at a store called "Rainbow"... and then heads to Somerton, the property where the party is being held. The location selected to film the exterior scenes is Mentmore Towers, built in the 19th century as a country home for a member of the world's most prominent and powerful elite family: the Rothschilds. The internal scenes of the party were filmed at Elveden Hall, a private home in the UK designed to look like an Indian palace. When the "festivities" begin, a Tamil song called "Migration" plays in the background, adding to the South Asian atmosphere (the original version of the song contained an actual recitation of scriptures from the Bhagavad Gita, but the chant was removed in the final version of the film). This peculiar Indian atmosphere, combined with the scenes witnessed by Bill as he walks through the house, points to the most important part... Bill's journey as a whole has its meaning... The last lines of the film conclude and define the journey of Bill. After running around New York and getting turned on by all sorts of situations, Bill comes face to face with his wife and talks about how he is "awake" now. With its “life force” fully charged. Alice ends the film by completing a sentence... The meticulous symbolism and imagery of all of Stanley Kubrick's Works often communicate another dimension of meaning - one that transcends. To honor Stanley Kubrick's contribution to science fiction cinema, the highest mountain range on Pluto's moon, Charon, was named "Kubrick Mons" in April 2018. It has a Mythological Meaning. But the etymology of 'Charon' comes from the Greek, meaning 'sharp gaze' and 'fierce', 'lightning', or 'febrile eyes'. Eyes Wide Shut is a fractal puzzle of infinite dimensions. Kubrick introduces us to mythical theater. Watch the last work, performed by Master Stanley Kubrick. (To Read Articles 2020 and 2021+, Click Article Archive, Click Month, Scroll Down and Just Read)

Inspiring Movie Review, To Catch a Thief Grace Kelly Cary Grant Alfred Hitchcock Humor Beauty Elegance Fashion and Stunning Landscapes Cary Grant .... John Robie (The Cat) Grace Kelly .... Frances Stevens Film based on the novel by David Dodge. Cary Grant is John Robie, a retired jewel thief who lives quietly on the Cotê d`Azur. And he is under suspicion of having committed several jewel thefts in Nice and Cannes. And he can only prove his innocence by catching the real culprit. But in the beautiful Cotê d`Azur he meets the stunning heiress Frances Stevens who is Grace Kelly, rich, bored, spoiled and enthusiastic and also curious about the reputation of John Robie ("The Cat"), Cary Grant. With gorgeous scenery. One of the most Elegant films, Hitchcock, knew what he was doing. Cary Grant and Gracy Kelly were together, actress and actor, some of the most elegant that ever passed through the cinema. They had natural Elegance. And beautiful! Gracy Kelly's costume was all designed by Edith Head, famous costume designer of the whole movie industry. And she had Gracy Kelly as her muse. Cary Grant, chose his own closet for the movie, because he was very elegant in real life, off screen. For the film Cary Grant found the red polka-dot scarf and the striped sweater in a local store. The scarf worn casually, tied around the neck in the style of a tie. This style was copied by many. The "look", entirely Casual, by Cary Grant. On his feet a CG handmade moccasin for Maxwell's, the pants of a suit. Very elegant. Look at Grace Kelly's "look" on the beach, with cat eye sunglasses, a light yellow swimsuit, and a scarf tied around her head in the same shade. Elegance on the beach. Grace Kelly's evening look is beautiful! She has class and a natural sense of Elegance, she seems to float, when she walks. Cary Grant in a tuxedo, lots of Elegance, natural. Innate Sense. The scene where Grace Kelly meets Cary Grant, in the lobby of the Hotel, she wears a black swimsuit, with a skirt-like beach outlet, a wide-brimmed hat (Flying Num), and a black turban. (One of Grace's signature pieces, made legendary by the future princess). In the picnic scene with the wonderful view of Monte Carlo, Grace Kelly wears a coral dress with white prints on the top (in perfect combination with the gloves) and with a pleated skirt and a coral scarf tied around her neck. Cary Grant with his usual Elegance. The scenes were improvised by the two, who were very much at ease with each other, (Hitchcock, approved). In the fireworks scene, both are in absolute classic elegance. Grace Kelly, is in a pearly white chiffon dress, with a magnificent diamond necklace. Cary Grant in a formal "look", which with all its Elegance, made it look, relaxed and fun. The clothes were a natural extension of himself (THIS IS THE BEST DEFINITION, FOR ELEGANCE). In the final scenes. We have a costume ball, held in a mansion on the Cote d'Azur.All the extras wore costumes in the style of Marie Antoinette's court (which I will talk about in another, article, about Sofia Coppola's film, made about Marie Antoinette). It was the most expensive scene that the stylist Edith Head had ever done. Grace Kelly, is dressed as "a fairy princess (Hitchcock's order). The ball gown, worn by her, with a huge gold mesh skirt, adorned with fabric birds and a gold mask, and on her head a gold wig (remember, all in the Marie Antoinette style). In an action scene, in which Cary Grant, walks on the roof ("The Cat'"), to prove his innocence. He wears black from head to toe, including a polo sweater. As the scene ends, he finishes the "look," with an elegant black coat, just in time for the final scene, on the terrace of his house in the hills, when he agrees to marry Frances (Grace Kelly). Cary Grant said, "I always went to work whistling." Evidently reflected, we saw all his Natural Elegance on the screen. Anyway, this film, shows, Natural Elegance in Cary Grant and Natural and Classical Elegance in Grace Kelly, mixed with Hitchcock's irresistible touch of English humor. And the stunning little City-State Monaco. You will be enchanted by such beauty in everything and everyone throughout the Film!
