I don't know about you guys, but I'm still in a bit of a daze regarding the passing of David Bowie. I didn't see the news until Monday morning, after which I immediately woke Zach up with the news. With his eyes still closed he groaned, "Oh no!," after which I realized that is an absolutely horrible way to wake someone up. (Sorry, Zach. Try to still love me.)
I have been really devouring all things Bowie in the past couple of days. Rolling Stones published this list of 15 Great David Bowie Performances as well as this article about why he was The Greatest Rock Star Ever, calling him both "the most human and most alien of rock artists." And of course there are countless articles about his massive influence as a fashion icon. CNN did a touching tribute to the Most Stylish Man in the Room. And I thought the tributes by Jimmy and Conan were especially sweet, showing the funny side to Bowie. Of course, there's also Blackstar. Have you listened to it yet? I obviously wish he would have been able to live and create for another 30 years, but if you have to go, just... Wow! What an amazingly brilliant way to leave the world.
Are you a David Bowie fan? I'd love to hear your favorite songs/movies/outfits/moments, etc. in the comments!
And now, the reason we are all gathered here in this corner of the old world wide web- my favorite links this week! Get your pointer fingers ready, friends, because you're going to want to get clicking...
