I am basically at, "Okay, new life ambition: go out on my own terms like Bowie."  Holy shit, man.

I swear, he was at, "Okay, Death, I'm going to record a farewell album to release on my 69th birthday.  Give me that, and we're good."

^This.  Sad at the loss, but as always, inspired by the ferocity and fearlessness of the man. RIP, Stardust.

I don't have words yet. Possibly I never will.

But I'm enjoying imagining his reunion with Freddie.

Vox called this cover of Space Oddity "The perfect tribute to David Bowie: an astronaut playing "Space Oddity" in space". There are some subtle changes (Major Tom is returning to Earth, not about to be lost) but this is great.
