And to post videos of Jermaine from The Flight of the Conchords impersonating David Bowie.
And to post a video of Jermaine and Bret singing to David Bowie in space.
It could be I decided to post about Bowie (again) because my husband and brother-in-law have totally dismissed me as a candidate for the 11th doctor, so, after much Bowie research, I've decided to take 1984 David Bowie along as my companion when I become the 11th doctor.
"But...but...what you mean I'm being regenerated??!! My ratings are SKY high! How could you POSSIBLY have found anyone to replace...Oh, NO! OrangeMoJoJo's decided she wants the part after all! To borrow a Caprica-ism - FRAKKK!!!"
Come to think of it, David Tennant would be a pretty fabulous companion, too, but, like Obama and Hillary, I doubt he'd settle for anything less than top billing, even if he were in drag.
But I digress from Bowie, which I would say is unforgiveable, but considering the twists and turns his career has made since the late 60s, I think he'd be okay with a David Tennant segue.
In episode 6 of Flight of the Conchords, entitled "Bowie," Bret has a dream of a helpful intervention by David Bowie after he's spent the day fretting over his body image. He proceeds to have two more dreams of a helpful Bowie after that, and each time Bowie appears to him from a different distinct Bowie era.
"Oh, the media monkeys and the junkie junkies will invite you to to the plastic pantamime; Throw their invites away."
"...I'm not really sure what you're talking about."
Dream Sequence 1: Ziggy Stardust-era, 1972 David Bowie offering Bret advice on overcoming his poor body image
Dream Sequence 2: Ashes to Ashes video, 1980 David Bowie offering Bret advice on going ahead and doing something outrageous when the time comes
And finally, Dream Sequence 3: Labyrinth, 1984 David Bowie questioning his ability to help people after his repeated failed attempts to help Bret. The third and final (or is it? The season is still young in the Netflix queue!) dream is followed with the Flight of the Conchords video "Bowie's in Space," which accounts for the extra three minutes.
I'm not sure why the boys are dressed at the beginning of the "Bowie's in Space" video as if they'd just walked off the cover of Queen II, but Queen is pretty far out there, too, man, so it totally works.
