He quickly figured out that the guy in the hint&#39;s picture is the (former) &quot;Can you hear me now?&quot; Verizon spokesman, and listed all the shows that have taken place at <a href="https://www.highly.co/hl/lNc3ODaRw0WBw2">Verizon-sponsored venues</a>. While that isn&#39;t exactly kosher (it&#39;s ok to discuss the clips and hints, e.g. &quot;that&#39;s the Verizon guy,&quot; but explicitly laying out the path to the answer for others generally isn&#39;t), but it ended up being a moot point as he was able to find the four clips himself &ndash; if anything, listing those shows hurt his chances of victory!

However, with the reference to Henry (AKA Hank or heroin) getting his lean on, the high-rev pace of the song, and Bowie&rsquo;s own admission that he was more into fast drugs; the lyrics can just as easily be ascribed to the rush of a good stimulant kicking into overdrive. &nbsp;Either way, Ziggy has no time for Henry because he is ready for more &ldquo;Wham Bam, Thank you Ma&rsquo;am!&rdquo; with his special lady friend....</p> Thu, 09 Mar 2017 15:40:57 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@Doctor_Smarty) Song "Inspire MORE with ART" Art & Coloring Contest http://phish.net/news/1487025237 http://phish.net/news/1487025237 <p>Whether you are touched through music, visual art, dance or another medium, ART has the power to inspire you to BE MORE.
