As you grow older, you’ll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and don’t you forget it-whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, that white man is trash.

Song of the Day

Rebel Rebel by David Bowie.

Seeing as the name of this blog was lifted from the lyrics, this really should have been my first song of the day, but there you go.  Lord God David opened every show on the Reality tour with this song.  We saw four shows on that tour and I’m so glad we did.  The husband and I went to see the David Bowie Is documentary about the Victoria and Albert exhibit last night and it made me yearn for a Bowie show.  Every time I see him live (nine times? ten?), I get a lump in my throat and goosebumps during the first song.  He’s the only one that does that for me.  Hearing these opening chords at every show on his last tour made me so so so happy. Hot Tramp, I love you so.
