View Full Version : David Bowie is a crabby old man

Not too long ago, illustrator Andrew Kolb created a children's book out of the lyrics to David Bowie's song "Space Oddity," only to be slapped with a cease-and-desist letter from Bowie's lawyers. Luckily, animator Andrew Ruttan has taken Kolb's imagery and brought it to life in this beautiful animated short about the sad tale of Major Tom.


The comments after the story are rather amusing. They spin off into talking about how pop music used to mean something and someone points out that the number one song the year this was on the charts was Mancini's theme to Romeo and Juliet, that Bowie wasn't even on the list.

Bowie has always been a over-egotistical human being all his life. I wish he toned it down through some of his life.
