I am uncertain of the Venn relationship between a set of Vogue Magazine readers and those of Outsideleft.com. And I don't want you OL guys to miss something special. And so, while Outsideleft readers are possibly on the bus, trudging towards backstreet art houses to see the Brett Morgan's Moonage Daydream-David Bowie biopic; viewers of Vogue's Youtube channel will have been fortunate enough to have discovered way more about Bowie himself, in Iman's 8 minute film for Vogue about her life with David in the modern house they built together in upstate New York. Iman's film is incredible personal and can't have been easy to make.
Outsideleft vs Vogue, though? One is owned by Condé Nast. One isn't owned. It's difficult to tell which though because of our high production values and blue ribbon content and tear inducing salaries. One features supermodels mostly always, one featured a piece by Joe Ambrose about Kate Moss aged 15, when she nearly was 15, nearly 15 years ago.
The David Bowie movie, Moonage Daydream, is onscreens now. Inside Iman and David Bowie's house is from Vogue on Youtube. Check out the others in the series too. Inside Karl Lagerfeld's French Home is particularly great too. And of course, a night in with Michaela Cole, cooking for friends - Michaela will be on Vogue's cover in November 22.

Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]
If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
