Shootin' My Spacegun
I ain't no autogaph collector, or handwriting analyzer, but here's my favorite show-biz signature, scrawled by... Well, you can read for yourself. The Ledge's original version of the song "I Took a Trip on a Gemini Spacecraft", not Bowie's suckshit disco version, inspired the name for this blog. I'm currently unable to post the song, since the copy I have is on vinyl and I don't yet own one of those USB turntables. But here's some Youtube footage of his appearance on Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In. When? '67-'68?
The portrait was taken by Stephanie Chernikowski and originally ran in Forced Exposure (#16), from around '90-'91, just one of her many great shots that appeared in that magazine.
