I tell you, we are here on Earth to fart around,
and don't let anybody tell you different

Go, go, go Ziggy, it's your birthday

Just in time (here in Zurich, at least): Happy 60th birthday to David Bowie.

Want to show your love? Check his discography. Shamefully, most of it (apart from the phenomenal The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars and Reality) are still on my "to listen" list, but hopefully that'll change by the time he's 70.

In the meantime, you can also celebrate by doing what I did yesterday and seeing The Prestige. A spectacular movie: Hugh Jackman is great, Christian Bale is even better, and Bowie is too cool for school playing none other than the great Nikola Tesla.

More Bowie from the BBC.
