RIP David Bowie :(

Post by AzaleaMoon on Mon Jan 11, 2016 2:42 am

Just saw the news that David Bowie passed away January 10th at age 69 after an 18-month battle with cancer.

I was a huge fan ever since seeing Labyrinth as a child, and my parents were fans before that too, so I grew up with his music.

His character Jareth in Labyrinth reminds me so much of Loki, in a way.


RIP David.

David Bowie joined the shortlist of "celebrities whose deaths have actually made me cry" (the only other two so far being Neil Armstrong and Elisabeth Sladen). I only have a "best of" CD but I had to listen to it when I found out. Might watch Labyrinth tomorrow night. (That was the first thing I can remember seeing him in. I was seven. He scared the crap out of me back then :p )

I watched it tonight and lit a candle for him. Such an amazing movie.

RIP David Bowie.
He was a very talented artist.
I remember he had a profound effect on me as the Goblin King. I think I was in my teens when I saw it.

FINALLY got the chance to watch Labyrinth earlier tonight :p Couldn't watch it when I wanted to b/c our power was out for two days, and then I just didn't have the opportunity.

And then I had to (re)watch this (which I'd only seen once before, probably over two years ago) and about died laughing because I am apparently a twelve-year-old boy. :p

I had such a crush on Jareth when that movie came out ... haha I could see a little bit of Loki in him, and Bowie in general. He set his own trends and fashion and could look androgynous if he wanted.
Oddly enough I had a dream about him a few days to a week before the news; I dreamt he was a spirit conjurer who could call forth cat spirits from around the world! lol It was so weird to hear of his death soon after.

Wow! And I think I saw somewhere that he was a cat lover, too. O.o

I was startled when I saw the news. It really knocked me for a loop. So many talented musicians and actors have died this month it's almost like they're being raptured
