David Bowie releases "The Next Day" and this fan couldn't be happier!

Hello Music Fans,

Today is no ordinary day. As far as I’m concerned it’s a holiday – and a big one at that. And I got the video footage to prove it. More on that in a second.

Today, March 12, 2013, is the day that my favorite musician released his first studio album in TEN years.

Five magic words:


I was so excited last night that I busted out all my Bowie books, records and my super cheesy but kinda awesome Bowie scrapbook.

And then I hopped into my car Frida and we zoomed over to Bull Moose Music so that I could buy “The Next Day” as soon as humanly possible.

I captured all of this Bowie merriment with my phone. It’s a little “Blair Witch-y” but I sure had fun with it.

Lights! Cameras! BOWIE!!!
