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.

I haven't listened to enough of his songs to form an opinion yet (though I really should start catching up). My biggest exposure to David Bowie was him playing (or should I say, being) Nicola Tesla in "The Prestige". The character's first appearance was seemingly appearing out of the electric storm, and now I'm picturing him walking back into that machine and disappearing. :(

Agreed, there's really no one else that can play Uncle Roberto now. Though I reckon the fan artists on DeviantArt and the like have now been given a whole new level of resolve to try and do his alas-what-could-have-been "Hannibal" character justice.
