I don't know why I woke up at 2 am, but I did, and I checked Twitter on my phone in bed and saw it: David Bowie passed away. So basically I'm posting my favorite stuff on Tumblr:

Or I was, until something went buggy and YouTube refused to play nice anymore. Because my taste is odd (and movie-centric?), it's stuff from the '80s and the '90s-00s, rather than the early classic songs.

It's odd--I was shocked for several hours, didn't go back to bed until 5 am--but I'm having a hard time being sad. It's so wonderful to see everyone sharing their favorite things, to see the scope of someone's life all at once and how much it meant to people, knowing also that he went out the way he wanted with "a carefully planned finale." Sometimes it seems like someone is gone, yet more present than ever.

HE DOES. They even have the same vampire snaggletooth! I noticed it when some Labyrinth gifs came up today.

This is going to sound really weird, but I feel really good right now? I've spent the whole day listening to his music and posting videos on Tumblr and it just all made me happy? I think it helps to have found out that he planned the end to be this way--it's kind of like getting to the end of a wonderful book, as sad as it is that it had to end. There's a sense of admiration and completion rather than tragedy?
