The Passenger

From Iggy Pop's 1977 album Lust For Life (with David Bowie helping on the chorus).  Also the theme song from Anthony Bourdain's current travel & food show on CNN.  He featured Iggy on a recent show - now 69 and retired with a condo in Miami, just hanging out and collecting social security.  Guess it beats smearing yourself with peanut butter and diving into a concert crowd. Who would have guessed?

Bourdain's show is quite good.  He can be a real jerk at times and be intellectually inconsistent and nonsensical but he knows and accepts that about himself which makes it all work.  Plus he has interesting takes on interesting places.

The video is fun, loaded with lots of mostly familiar movie clips.
