One of Bowie's many alter ego's.



Is this a character he plays on stage too?

LOL. :)

More than likely!! Since Bowie's left eye was injured in real life then I would have thought this clip of Bowie with a patch on the right eye might have been one of his characters. I am not sure as it's the only footage I have seen . He could be wearing a patch here for an eye problem but I will give it the benefit of the doubt and have it that it was one of his characters though I am not sure which one. lol

Perhaps Ziggy might have been a better example-
Interestingly Bowie chose to patch Ziggy's non injured eye though he didn't patch him all the time. :x

Bowie is able to see out of his injured eye although he sees some colours differently and in his words has ' faulty DP'. So in this clip at least Mr Bowie or his alter ego can see.

Anyway nice to see Danger Mouse on this thread :)

I love Danger Mouse! I still watch it to this day on Youtube. I remember that it used to air on Nickelodeon, over here, when I was really young -- it always gave me a good chuckle!

I was lucky in the fact that, when I was a really small child, that a show called "Pinwheel" was being showed -- this show had cartoons, and other animations that were from all over the world. I remember "Paddington Bear", "Curious George", "Charlie's Climbing Tree", and all sorts of others! Danger Mouse didn't air on Pinwheel, but I think they just showed it as it was.

Henry Weems from the X-Files episode "The Goldberg Variation"
Original Airdate: 12-12-99

Mulder found his artificial eye and returned to it to Weems who immediately put it in the socket without washing it off! :shock:

What got me about this episode, Scully was trying to find Weems and was looking at "doctors" to see if anyone reported in with a missing fake eye. The writers should have known that Weems would have went to an Ocularist and I'm sure there aren't many of them in Chicago.

John Wayne started his Oscar acceptance speech by saying, “Wow! If I’d have known that, I would have put that patch on thirty-five years earlier.”


When Wayne returned to the set of the Undefeated after the Oscar ceremony, stuntman Neil Summers remembers

There were about 150 of us on the set - cast, crew, extras, caterers - and when he gets out of his car, we all have our backs to him.
Then we turned around and all of us had on eye patches (like Cogburn's in the movie), even his horse has an eye patch. The carpenters had built a mock Oscar out of plywood, 50 feet high, painted gold, and it had an eye patch on it.

"Then we all started applauding. He got misty-eyed over that."

Odin disguised himself as Vegtam the Wanderer, and visited the Mímisbrunnr to drink from the Well of Wisdom. He exchanged his eye for a drink that allowed him to see what would befall (both good and bad) upon men. He used this knowledge to prevent Ragnarök, or Fate of the Gods, an armageddon-like event
