The Man Who Sold The World by SilentKW The Man Who Sold The World by SilentKW
We passed upon the stairs,
We spoke of was and when
Although I wasnt there
He said I was his friend
Which came as a surprise
I spoke into his eyes -- I thought you died alone
A long long time ago

Oh no, not me,
We never lost control,
Youre face to face,
With the man who sold the world

I laughed and shook his hand,
I made my way back home,
I searched for form and land,
Years and years I roamed,
I gazed a gazely stare,
We walked a million hills -- I must have died alone,
A long long time ago.

"The Man Who Sold The World" - David Bowie

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

A painting of Dr. Manhatten from the amazing GN/movie Watchmen (which is amazing). He's just, so blue lol.

Yes, I have made a Watchmen playlist on my Ipod, don't judge me. I really like this song and there are lines that suit Jon (his real name), and he sort of did sell the world, and in the end, he left everyone he knew. Anywho, enjoy :)

Time: 2.5 hours
Materials: Acryllic paint on watercolour paper
Reference: Beautiful screenshot from one of the trailers.

you know I was just talking about this storta thing with my friend the other day. John In many ways dose represent the Ziggy Stardust persona that david bowie took up back in the 70s but in a more godlike disconeted stature. I actually have a theory that the film lines up with a bunch of Bowie songs such as as the world falls down to life on mars and ashes to ashes....do you think thats possibul?

SilentKW Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2009
sweet, im not the only person to think that :). I totally agree about the whole Ziggy thing, a lot of those songs totally fit Jon.

I was listening to my Bowie cds yesturday and I noticed many similarities. If you take the song "Big Brother", one of the verses goes

"He'll build a glass asylum
With just a hint of mayhem
He'll build a better whirlpool
We'll be living from sin,
then we can really begin"

You also can't doubt "The Superman" either. Amzing lyrics and so many that suit Jon.....we should talk about this more lol
