In Minute 53 of The Whole Shebang, Jenny and Mike look at the perfect symbolism of T. Rex’s 1971 track “Cosmic Dancer” and its applicability to both Jack and Brian, how it presents the liminality of Brian’s transition from folkie to glam, Mandy’s integral role in making Brian’s new image, Mandy’s philosophy of a mediator to help the world cope with the acceleration of progress, its relation to Bowie’s idea of the “homo superior” (swiped by Chris Claremont for the X-Men) and Terence McKenna’s Timewave Zero, how Mandy’s theories of time and progress reflect the stimulating nature of her marriage, the visual callbacks to Ingmar Bergman’s Persona, how Angie and Brian’s comfy and awesome bedroom is reminiscent of David and Angie Bowie’s Haddon Hall, and other famous rock living quarters.
