I’ll Steal Every Moment

I’m in your way, and I’ll steal every moment.

Pin Ups

3 Sep


David Bowie didn’t write any of the songs for this cover album. I loved all the songs. I listened to it endlessly on my record player when I lived in California. I remember painting Twiggy in my art class when I was 17. I don’t know where the original acrylic is; I think I destroyed it.

Come out of the garden, baby.
