The Milwaukee Bucks have been amply rewarded for selecting Giannis Antetokounmpo with the 15th pick in the 2013 NBA draft. The Greek immediately showed many a skill not associated with 6’11” giants. A veritable Swiss Army knife, he has refined and bolstered his game to the uppermost echelons. After averaging 29.5 ppg in 2019-20, he claimed his second consecutive MVP award as a 25 year old. Oh. He also prevailed as the Defensive Player of the Year. The combo has now been achieved all of 3 times in league history.
Great “character” actor J.T. Walsh could do it all.
Various iterations of this profound art.
Dr. L. Subramaniam.
Master of the Ney flute.
Praying to the Aliens.
Gary Numan performs one of his signature compositions.
Are Friends Electric?
Mesmeric, starkly entrancing performances by Gary Numan. And: the 1984 version, by which time he’s all but carried off on the shoulders of an adoring populace, not a drop of his unique artistry being spilled all the while.
Down in the Park.
Down in the park where the machmen
Meet the machines and play Kill by Numbers
Down in the park with a friend called Five
I was in a car crash or was it the war?
But I’ve never been quite the same
Little white lies like I was there
Come to Zom-Zom’s, a place to eat
Like it was built in one day
You can watch the humans trying to run
Oh look, there’s a rape machine
I’d go outside if it’d look the other way
You wouldn’t believe the things they do
Down in the park
Where the chant is death, death, death
Until sun cries morning
Down in the park with friends of mine
We are not lovers, we are not romantics
We are here to serve you
A different face but the words never change
Gary Numan gives stunningly dramatic, provocative performances of one of his most elusive, ceremonial, cryptic compositions.
