Adam and Eve.

Small pointless observation:

Most male names seem to end in consonants.

Most female names seem to end in vowels.

At least in the Western cultural linguistic tradition. Indeed a masculine name can be feminised by adding a vowel. Paul > Paula, Brendan > Brenda, Peter > Petra, Patrick > Patricia, Fred > Freda, etc.

Cygnet committee

David Bowie was born in 1947. In 1969, he was 22 years old, and writing music and lyrics of startling perceptiveness and maturity.




I never did get into everything David Bowie did. That's always going to be the way when he morphs constantly from one thing to the next. I remember seeing an interview with him where he told the interviewer that he'd go so far with something, then just get bored and move on.That's something I can relate to.  I felt his last couple of offerings were remarkable.

I could never have had the intelligence or maturity to write the lyrics of Cynet Committee when I was 22. I hope that I somehow have the resilience and energy to do something different when I reach my final years.

RIP David Bowie. You were fucking awesome, even when you weren't.
