Yes, RIP David.  He was responsible for such iconic and influential music, many songs that I didn't even realize were by him.

And who can forget movies like The Hunger (1983), Labyrinth (1986), and Zoolander (2001)?

Wow, sad. Heard he just released an album and I didn't even know he was sick.

Rest now, David Bowie. Your work will live on.

Can we PLEASE stop losing so many actors/singers/musicians? How many have passed on in the last month? 10 or so? I'm getting afraid to access the internet for fear of hearing another major part of my past has died.

Damn.  He's been one of my favorite actors, musicians, and all around favorite celebrities since I first saw Labyrinth.  If all he'd ever done was play Jareth, that would have been enough.

This is hard to take.  I'm here at work hiding in the back because I'm having to choke back tears.

He was the greatest of the great, the coolest of the cool. Brave, innovative, a genius. We will not see his equal. When I first heard early this morning I thought I was going to cry. I never thought about him dying because it seemed impossible. I didn't know he was sick. I was going to get his new album. He was a demigod, and I'll miss him so much. The time I saw him live in 1995 when I was sixteen (he totally overshadowed NIN!) remains the greatest concert of my entire life, bar none. I was excited for weeks before that show, and charged up for just as long afterward. I have eighty-three of his songs right here on my phone, burned CDs on a rack, old mix tapes, albums on cassette, even two of his records that were originally my cousin's. Videos bookmarked... Labyrinth on VHS and DVD. Two other of his movies. A few years ago I got into Life on Mars and Ashes To Ashes on TV because of their Bowie themes. 

I....just can't believe he's dead.

Truly. A terrible loss.

I'm so bummed.  Lemmy from Motorhead, now Bowie.

 Bluesad R.I.P. David Bowie. He was such a great singer, performer, entertainer, actor. "Space Oddity" remains one of my all-time fave songs. Many of his movies have been mentioned but I also though he was quite good in The Man Who Fell to Earth as well.

funny thing...
I liked Fame when I was little, & vaguely remembered Golden Years, But I didn't really know who he was until he released Let's Dance & I realized this was the same guy who sang on the Cat People soundtrack....
