David Bowie: the rasx() Bowie Collection (YouTube.com)
 

I have been exposing my teenaged, virginal fascination with David Bowie on the Web since “Black Tie White Noise” (1998). For legal reasons alone, I would have never imagined that the day would come when I could watch David Bowie music videos leisurely on demand at any resolution for no additional cost. Even though my selections at YouTube.com can disappear at any moment, I have finally revised my imagination and present my long-time Bowie favorites.

Legal machinations aside, my intentions are to share with you my favorite music video of all time, “Ashes to Ashes,” why I call myself “the kinté space oddity,” some comedy from the Seu Jorge character and a possible glimpse at Luther Vandross (Bowie’s vocal arranger for the Young Americans project) on an old ’70s Tee Vee show. Let’s see what happens: It’s too late to be hateful. The European Man is here.
