I actually haven't heard Lodger yet and I should get on that. But yeah, Ziggy Stardust is a good starting point, or maybe Hunky Dory.
Ohh Hunky Dory. I knew I was forgetting my actual favourite. My very favourite Bowie album.

I heart Casanova. Every single thing about it from the cover art to the disc itself to the sounds recorded thereon. It is tied in the best-Divine-Comedy-album stakes with Promenade, which you should also definitely definitely listen to.

I will do, once I'm properly permanently in a place. For now though, I'm in a basement for a month while looking for other places, and it's all furnished and such so I don't have much to worry about. I went out and bought Canadian Tire's finest, cheapest kettle. It is serviceable. Rather than a normal heating element it has a hot plate, which leads me to suspect I could poach an egg in it.
Anyways, in the interest of jvcc listening to every single thing she hears mentioned, I forgot to make further mention of Joanna Newsom. She sounds like this. She's not too easy to get into, but the album to start with is The Milk-Eyed Mender. Her second album, Ys, is pretty inaccessible (although better), and I'm not yet too familiar with her third.
Oh, uh, Blur, Hilltop Hoods.
I like to go to the Albert Hall and see whoever is playing for free on Friday lunchtimes. I won't be doing that for a while. I need to find a similar thing in Toronto.
