Is it required that you sit through the whole 8 hours in one sitting? Asking for my lower back…

The first thing I thought about was the narrator in The Rocky Horror Picture Show saying, “And what of the floor show?”

Bowie had kicked the cocaine by then, though–all of his Berlin albums were the side-effect of him and Iggy Pop going to West Berlin to kick their habits (heroin for Iggy).

But the 1980 Floor Show was filmed in ‘73, so cocaine was probably involved.
