Excerpt from my text NOTHING WILL EMBARRASS YOU LIKE BOWIE FANS
1.
– Did you see?
– Did I see what.
– Did you see him? On tv? Yesterday?
Of course I saw him. But one doesn’t just admit something like that.
– Did you see him?
– Yes, I saw him!
But noone else did. Everybody else in the room saw a French clown in a blue screen video. I was the only one who saw him. The others didn’t hear the syncopated longing, cooler than anything I had ever heard before, and the sound that said, I have found you. But you saw him, my thirteen year old friend (me still twelve). And you saw through me and you knew, that I saw him too. But one can’t just admit something like that. It’s too private.

Nothing in the world will embarrass you like other Bowie fans. They are more painful than your parents. Your parents, that you’ll be evolutionarily predisposed to distance yourself from, while you become you. But nothing has prepared you how on to stand apart from other Bowie fans. They’ll mirror you without mercy.
