Outside movie ?[edit]

I vaguely heard about a movie version of Outside... Does it exist? Where can I find more infos? Thanks ...

"1.Outside" or just "Outside" ?[edit]

I think that the name of this album is just Outside, as it appears printed on the side of the box. The number 1 on the cover just shows that it's the first album of a trilogy (unfinished by now), but I don't think it's part of the proper name of the album. --SugarKane 19:21, 8 December 2005 (UTC)

well...[edit]

It's not standarized yet. Some sources say that it's 1.OUTSIDE, while some other ones say it's just Outside. The number represents that it's first of the trilogy - that's true. --(unsigned)

Moving[edit]

I'm moving it from 1.OUTSIDE to Outside (album) and changing the name from 1.OUTSIDE to Outside. The number is not closely tied to the name, as evidenced by related names not including it (Excerpts from Outside and "Outside Tour") and not being included consistently on the box (see comment above). The uppercasing is purely stylistic, for the same reasons. --PEJL 14:10, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

Hmm[edit]

It was supposed to be the first of five albums, not three I believe but that's irrelevant. It is frequently referred to as 1. Outside in e.g. Complete David Bowie, so I think this should be reverted... 195.157.52.65 11:08, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Reply[edit]

As noted above, it is referred to in both ways in different places, including on the album itself. How it is referred to in non-official places (such as in that book) should carry very little weight. --PEJL 12:09, 6 June 2007 (UTC)


Changed to 1. Outside[edit]

I changed it to 1. Outside. Unforutnately I acted bold before I read the talk page (doh!). It doesn't seem like it's okay either way so I will leave it. Jason Quinn (talk) 23:32, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

I have changed it back because pages should not be moved by pasting. We have a "move" function for that. Should the move seem desirable, an administrator would be happy to help at Wikipedia:Requested moves. I'd be happy to do it myself, if a note is dropped at my talk page. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 22:45, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

Perhaps we should mention the alternative title somewhere in the article? -- Rainwarrior (talk) 21:24, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

Nicholas Greco's master's thesis on Outside[edit]

A guy called Nicholas Greco wrote his master's thesis in music criticism about Outside. I think it's an interesting analysis showing how Outside holds up as a work of art. David Bowie's 1. Outside - The creation of a liminoid space as a metaphor for pre-millennial society How about mentioning it in the article? Outside sure has some extraordinary qualities. A perspective on those could make this a great article. Jonah Lark 23:50, 19 August 2006 (UTC)
