If we can be heroes just for one day.

Everyone, just one act makes us heroes, just for one day.

This song has everything. the soaring guitar (is it an ebow?) the plea for one act, to be a hero A kiss can be a revolutionary act. This one hits me hard. 

Let us beat them for ever and ever by being heroes. Just for one day.

The racist, the fear-monger, the petty insecurities that we all feel,  it counts for nothing if we can't make that human connection.

This song has the second worst lyric I know of - (the worst is des'ree's Life with
"I don't want to see a ghost
It's a sight that I fear most
I'd rather have a piece of toast")

"I, I wish you could swim
Like the dolphins, like dolphins can swim"

But that it is still a powerful song is testament to Bowie.

I wish I could see him in the afterlife if there was such a thing, he would at last meet Anthony Newley, the inspiration for his best work.

I try not to be over emotional about the death of someone I never knew, but Bowie..

Mother Teresa to become saint after Pope recognises 'miracle' - report

If her ghost has magic powers, why did she only use them here? Sounds a bit evil to me. Spider man is morally superior. He knew with great power came great responsibility, not doing the absolute minimum you need to qualify.


Or it could just be made up.

Why is Australia so racist? It's good that you can rely on Murdoch papers to be nasty and small minded wherever you are in the world, but even the Sun couldn't get away with this.

Even more galling when you know that India is way more technologically advanced than Australia is. How many probes has Australia sent to Mars?

That's without the almost criminal level of ignorance about climate change and world aid.

Free Bowie Game!

I remember this when it came out quite good. I wonder how dated it will be now.

The turtle moves!
 
Scientists Discover Biofluorescent Sea Turtle in South Pacific http://imgur.com/gallery/NqFGQYz
The critically endangered hawksbill sea turtle is the first reptile scientists have seen exhibiting biofluorescence—the ability to reflect the blue light hitting a surface and re-emit it as a different color. The most common colors are green, red, and orange. Biofluorescence is different from bioluminescence, in which animals either produce their own light through a series of chemical reactions, or host bacteria that give off light. Corals fluo...

Jeremy Hunt orders investigation into plight of 'rat-bitten' grandmother

Hmm, just doesn't sound right to me. Only one person attacked, no evidence except the daughter, even Hunt uses weasel words in case it's a hoax.

Most pubs in Brighton sell Darkstar beers, this is the home of the microbrewery. Too much choice?
