Greatest Xmas Present of 2007

No disrespect to the the givers of the many fine and thoughtful presents I received this year, such as my super-cool Green Lantern t-shirt (thanks Susan!), but the hand's down winner in ultra-glam-coolishness goes to Cousin Liz, for Moonage Daydream, a visual compendium of the 18-month's-long reign of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. Pictures by Mick Rock. Words by Bowie. It's outrageous, outlandish, and so much fun! Thanks, Cuz -- Love on ya! 

Here's something I never knew existed until I read this book: Bowie and Marianne Faithfull dueting on "I Got You Babe."
