I certainly hope so!
I hear you. To be fair, a lot of substance has also been released - ignoring remixes which are contentious (and ignoring irritating release tactics/formats), we have had a bunch of early demos (some of which were unknown), some really good live stuff (WTTB, CA, IOD, the BLAs) and some one-offs (IIAW, CNB).
If the price of the substance is the existence of the tat (which I can happily ignore), then kudos to the tat (*).
The tat reminds be of the huge amount of Elvis stuff that you still see being hawked even to this day, and I guess the Bowie stuff is just going to get as bad as that over time.
Although I have no desire for any of that "random stuff with 'Bowie' written on it", I really think the Bowie estate have missed a trick on the "onesie" front - a set of printed onesies depicting his famous looks would surely be more of a draw than a black T-shirt with "Bowie" stamped on it.
The "Old Grey Whistle Test"/Ziggy cover jump-suit, a Yamamoto Ziggy outfit or two, The Thin White Duke, TJ Newton, Scary Monsters's Pierrot costume - I'd happily sit watching TV in any of those, and I'm fairly confident that with the hood up I wouldn't even be able to hear my wife telling me how sad I was
(*) Two album titles right there - "The Price Of The Substance" and "Kudos To The Tat"
There's one in Berlin as well!
I wonder if Tony will pop in and sign some brickwalling?
Does he sign "Rotten Tony" ?
What would you have Tony do? Even with the hood down, TV's bass booster would probably be enough to mute the missus. Maybe you could erect a pole for Tony; he could dance around that to the "Heroes" album until he has to pause for a loss of energy.

When people stop buying.
I must have bought 30 copies of Low just to get a quiet version the 2nd side , I bought 15 each of the Orange label and of Green International labels, I must say I found more quiet versions of this green label, I have now 5 quiet versions as I sold the others !
If you were after a quiet side 2 and you now have 5, why did you carry on buying after you got your 1st good one?
I must've got lucky with my week-of-release copy, lifted to order for me from Boots The Chemist by my dearly beloved 1st music buddy, now sadly deceased
