Ground control to Major Tom


I found this mural of musical greats downtown near the Bathurst subway station. I like this rendition of David Bowie during his Ziggy Stardust days, it's just unfortunate he has that pipe running through his head! For more murals, take a look at Monday Mural.

PS: Happy Victoria day to my Canadian readers! It looks like summer is actually here.

Maybe the pipe represents those ubiquitous microphones singers wear on stage? Oui?

Glad it's warming up. It's been hot here the past few days! Keep swinging! (Your golf club!)

Very timely post, with David Bowie :)

Nice one - he's in the news a lot lately.

WOW I'll have to go and check this out! Thanks!

Weird. It is as if the painter didn't know where he/she was painting.

That's a great one.

Seems like this song and David Bowie have been in the news a lot lately. Doesn't hurt than an astronaut sang this song recently before he returned to earth! Isn't Bowie putting out a new album (I mean CD) soon? The return of Ziggy Stardust...Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

I think he may have had quite a bit of 'stuff' in his head in those days Halcyon :) Excellent find and amazing to see him make a comeback after all these years.

Trop cool ! Ca me fait penser qu'il faut que j'écoute son dernier album !

It's very accurate and especially having to negotiate the pipes! Great find Hal.

Nice mural. Been watching the astronaut version of Space Oddity over and over again lately.

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
