I think the issue is that she is a lot scarier than the other young woman.

Like maybe she would tear off some of you. In a bad way.


There is no "bad way."


I suspect that you have not seen Trouble Every Day.

you guys dig that tranny look?

Yeeeaahhh... I been trying to sort that one out for a while myself...

I downloaded some old David Bowie TV special footage a while back, and was immediately intrigued by this person... but... I don't know... Internet research has me going back and forth... there are convincing enough looking pictures that make me believe she is all woman... but enough random anecdotes from people who *swear up and down* that they knew him before he had become she... I'm left very confused...
My mind, it's a terrible diskette.

So i'm straightening up listening to 'Siren' and I sez to myself I sez, "I should see if there's a C/NC on Roxy Music."

And it's been bumped. Brilliant.

If she is a conversion, she is a damn good conversion.

I can't see it mattering unless one were to end up in bed with her, if then, which is unlikely in the extreme.

See now... that's kind of what I was thinking... especially for whatever the state of cosmetic medical technology must have been back in the 1960's... I mean even to this day, in the 2000's, there are sometimes actual female-born ladies who get their breasts done and it comes out looking terrible (and obvious)...

The few topless/nude Amanda Lear photos I have seen in the past would then make me think "all-female" for sure, unless the photos were tinkered with(?)

But that would have been pre-Photoshop technology of course... I don't think I'm familiar with the limits of old-fashioned photo manipulation... so I guess anything is possible...?

And then there's the association with Dalí, which could definitely put a spin on and make me doubt anything that I would otherwise take as known fact...

So I go in circles, and I give up.

Absolutely no way she is a chopjob. The boobs and pubis are way too nice. Not a chance.

This is a wikipedia link, but do a google image search for Dana International, winner of the 1998 Eurovision Song Contest from Israel.

I'd fuck that person back in time while you dudes go back and forth with the history of photo manipulation and index referencing in Gray's.

My French teacher looked somewhat like Amanda Lear at 60.

Very good posture.

Big fake boobs, square hips and no shots of pubis. If this is as good as they get, then there's no way Amanda Lear is a retrofit.

I have another theory.

Jamie Lee Curtis is the textbook case. Fact. My old roommate was told this in med school.

Have been digging this record recently. Never really considered it before. I love the song "She Sells" for some reason.

Hahaha, this whole thread.

Brett Eugene Ralph wrote:Unfortunately, a vinyl copy of Country Life was not available anywhere I looked

I hope by now you have a copy to listen to, because Country Life has several of Roxy Music's very best songs: "The Thrill of It All," "Out of the Blue," "All I Want Is You," and "Prairie Rose."

Not crap.

Roxy Music is made up of some of the most interesting and talented musicians out there. They're one of those rare groups whose music reveals more the more you listen to them.

Here's a not-live version of Pyjamarama, my favorite.

Not crap.

I always love that part in Lost In Translation where Bill Murray sings "More Than This" in the karaoke bar.

I'm a little bummed that there isn't going to be a new full-on Roxy album with Eno on production, but then again, it's possible they dodged a bullet there too by deciding that it wouldn't be a good idea after all.

I too came to Roxy Music via Eno but think the two albums following Eno's departure, Stranded and Country Life, are the best. I too was blown away by the song Mother of Pearl and only came to the band fairly recently.
