The B-Daddy Channel

Over at The Liberator Today I commented on The Big Chill and the transition of the Baby Boomers from college protesters to capitalist consumers of the finer material things our society has to offer. Today's video has some of those elements. Bowie who wrote and performed the song that created the Major Tom character, was and still is popular among the hipsters. But the Shiny Toy Guns have breathed new life into this classic, even as it used to hawk Cadillacs, which the boomers parents were enamored of, but the boomers not so much. I am including the original version by Peter Schilling because we love to compare the covers.
