Cracked Actor - David Bowie [1974] [DVD Video]

Hooray! A Full DVD!!
Get it now!.

And if I may be so bold as to just hand you over to someone who is obviously much better equipped to deal with such things as reviews...
Or Wikipedia as it's also known

Cracked Actor is a 53-minute-long BBC television documentary film about the pop star David Bowie. It was filmed in 1974. At the time he was a cocaine addict and the documentary has become notorious for showing Bowie's fragile mental state during this period. It was made by Alan Yentob for the BBC's Omnibus documentary strand, and was first shown, on BBC2 in the UK, on January 26, 1975.
The documentary depicts Bowie on tour in Los Angeles, using a mixture of documentary sequences filmed in limousines and hotels, and concert footage. Most of the concert footage was taken from a show at the Los Angeles Universal Amphitheatre on 2 September 1974. There were also excerpts from D.A. Pennebaker's concert film Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, which had been shot at London's Hammersmith Odeon on 3 July 1973, as well as a few other performances from the tour.[1] 'Cracked Actor' is notable for being one of the only sources for footage of Bowie's ambitious Diamond Dogs tour.
The title of the documentary was originally to be The Collector, after a comment that Bowie had made to interviewer Russell Harty the previous year, whereby he described himself as "a collector of accents". Yentob and his team were given the task of documenting Bowie's famous Diamond Dogs tour, which was already underway when they started filming. Locations for the documentary mainly centred around Hollywood and Los Angeles, but there was also concert footage taken from Philadelphia. A number of performances from the tour were shown, including songs such as "Space Oddity", "Cracked Actor", "Sweet Things/Candidate", "Moonage Daydream", "The Width of a Circle", "Aladdin Sane", "Time", "Diamond Dogs" and "John, I'm Only Dancing (Again)".

At present, the documentary remains unreleased officially.

OK now all I should point out is that this is a collectors/Fans DVD and is nicely made with menus and a little extra too.

It never does only friggin' rain they say don't they?
It pours...
Wow. Here I am trying to get through this steroid dependency withdrawal - of which I am now down to 6mg daily from a start of 12mg! - and then my hard drive just ..STOPS.
Not a whisper.

I was typing, I heard a click (that good old click of death! and then the screen froze. Oh well usual XP crap I thought, reboot..
Upon reboot I got the black screen telling me:
'Disk Read Error', 'Press Ctrl+ALT+DEL To Restart'.
I was only slightly losing my mind by this point...

I remembered the best way to fix this situation and there really is only ONE possible chance at retrieving data or getting the hard drive back into a working state for long enough to grab some files(I back up but hadn't for a month and so quite a few photographs and files were doomed).
Get a copy you will not regret it!
I found my disc and put it immediately found what it called 'Defective sectors'... errors that it could recover data from and errors that it couldn't recover data from. It wasn't looking good but I decided to go with Spinrite and put it on top level recovery setting which then told me it had 'only' 312 hours left to go!!!
I left it running all weekend and then it had changed its expected time to a better one and by yesterday it was finished(almost 3 days)!
I rebooted the PC and..
Here I am using it again!
Windows came back on, everything works fine and...I got to upload all my files to my online backup so crisis averted!!
The thing is I NEED a new hard drive of course.
Any offers?

Maybe it's time for something nice after all that moaning...

I really must try to go to Formula 1 some day. Not sure why they have these women walking around the place but I won't complain...

I think I may have discovered a new sport I like!
Woman's Basketball anyone...?

Looks like a real fun day out!

So where the hell is the music damn it?
I don't know...I only just got back online ... give me a minute!
Oh and lately I realised that hotfile isn't the best one to use ... they delete files too easily if they get a wee complaint. I will be using megaupload mainly from now on and possibly another site if it's asked for...
