DAVID BOWIE: Where Are U Now? 1944... 1947... or 2013?

It's David Bowie's birthday today (and Jimmy Page's, tomorrow!). 

Last year I posted the greatest episode ever of "Flight of the Conchords" (called, simply BOWIE). 

This year, I'm sharing one of my favorite surrealist drawings, because I was recently reminded of it at the LACMA exhibit (seen it before, always thought the same thing). It resembles the birthday boy! Drawn by Alfonso Ossorio in 1944 (predating Bowie's birth by just a few years... or is it? After all, Bowie did play a time-space-dimension mixologist in "The Prestige").
