David Bowie 1947 - 2016

Shit, this knocked the breath out of me with a baseball bat as bad as Carlin and Williams.

He was 69. Here's his 66th birthday salute.

Here's "The Dreamers", that I put into The Krazyfool Show.

This is the last known pic of David Bowie, taken on his birthday last Friday?

Stupid things that flashed through my head re: Bowie's death:

-The video for Nirvana doing "The Man Who Sold The World" now can be associated with TWO deaths.
-The first I ever saw of him doing music was a late 90s SNL appearance where he sang that "you little wonder" song.
-He did an industrial-ish album in 1995 called "1.Outside" which was kinda trashed by everybody, it was going to get a sequel called "2.Contamination" anyway, but never did!
-I doubt he was going to do any more "Twin Peaks" stuff, but his role in "Fire Walk With Me" where he did a bizarre Southern accent and played a completely inexplicable character, was supposed to continue into future TP movies, but was nullified after FWWM was critically/commercially savaged.
-His best acting role was in "The Prestige"
-My favorite Bowie album is "Heathen," from 2002--check it out, it's really good!
-More people than you think know him as "The Goblin King"!
-He was basically a recluse for the last decade! His new album is supposedly really good though.
-Prindle apologized on Facebook for making fun of Bowie on his old website, but I still laughed at the "David Live" review

Err....that's all.....oh wait his son who directed "Moon" and "Source Code" posted sad pic of Bowie with him as a baby on his Twitter.
