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!)

Youth, Beautiful Movie Visually Captivating Paolo Sorrentino. A Composer and a Director go on vacation in a Luxury hotel at the foot of the Alps, Switzerland In a beautiful environment. They philosophize about the present and past Life. Future, perhaps, watching the resort's young guests. Aware of the little time they have left, already in their 80s. One is Fred Ballinger, a legendary English composer, currently being badgered by a Buckingham Palace accessor to conduct a royal command performance of his Simple Songs, an early, popular composition that he now finds tiresome. Ballinger, played by Michael Caine, is a former director of the Venice Symphony Orchestra and the city is the scene for a superb flashback hallucination. Harvey Keitel plays the other, Mick Boyle, an aging movie director working with increasing despair on a lachrymose film entitled Love's Last Day that he hopes will be his legacy. But funding is dependent on casting his former leading lady, Brenda Morel – a terrific cameo from Jane Fonda. Fred and Mick are old friends, further bound by the fact that Ballinger's beautiful daughter and assistant Lena (Rachel Weisz) is married to Boyle's son Julian (Ed Stoppard). As they stroll around the place, mourning the loss of their youth and lost sexual opportunities, they exchange idle conversation with another guest, young and smug Hollywood star Jimmy Tree (Paul Dano). They're also stunned by the recent Miss Universe winner (Madalina Ghenea), who likes getting naked in the hot tub while they're in it. Visually captivating like all Sorrentino's Work, the images he conjures up are often wonderful, particularly his gift for faces: surprisingly strange and sad, beautiful and ugly. Fred and Mick have a fun way to complain together. But, Paolo Sorrentino filmed with extreme grandeur and in an artistic way, this human anguish. Youth is an exercise in elegance by Paolo Sorrentino.
