SECTS 296A couple of things about today’s episode… I don’t normally name these, but this one felt natural to name “Buzz Oddity.” I also don’t normally comment, but given the subject matter I felt that I should.

David Bowie passed away, and when I heard that, my mind went back to a time in my childhood when I remembered hearing his song, Space Oddity, for the first time. It wasn’t just music, but it was a story. I remember feeling like it was more than a song, as I found myself imagining Major Tom floating around somewhere up there.

This episode in and of itself was inevitable, given Buzz’s antics, and my fondness for song parody. David Bowie’s untimely passing made it impossible not to do this today. I have no way of knowing what he might have thought of such silliness, but it’s my way of saying to the universe that something he created implanted itself into my subconscious in such a way that it was inevitable that one day I would create something inspired by his creation.

  1. I love this song by David Bowie. I remember as a child being mesmerised by it. ‘Floating in my tin can’ somehow rang and I could see poor old Tom stuck out there by himself

    1. Yeah, it’s one of those really visual songs where it’s easy to see what is happening as you listen along. I remember being able to do that as a very young kid the first time I heard this on the radio too. It’s always kind of sad, thinking of him floating alone up there.
