Yesterday a friend posted this video
on her Facebook page along with this statement from David Bowie:
It's not as truly hostile about Americans as say "Born in the U.S.A.": it's merely sardonic. I was traveling in Java when [its] first McDonald's went up: it was like, "for fuck's sake." The invasion by any homogenised culture is so depressing, the erection of another Disney World in, say, Umbria, Italy, more so. It strangles the indigenous culture and narrows expression of life.
In the first comment, she added, "Holly, I can't hear any DB without thinking of you."
This of course made me very happy. If someone is going to hear an artist and always think of you, well, it might as well be Bowie.
