Only two months ago I was attending the last day of the David Bowie Is exhibition before it moved to another city. It was great to see such a diverse crowd appreciating such a groundbreaking figure.

I found out about half an hour before my girlfriend came over last night. It was bad timing... we hadn't seen each other in a week and a half, and were really excited, but the news just knocked me flat and I just wanted to sit on Twitter and listen to his music for the rest of the night. Ended up sort of ignoring it and watching The Bachelor with her. I feel guilt for not having let it sink in, I haven't cried, and that is making me feel awful, but yeah. I just don't know how to feel. In a bit of shock, I think. I had a physical reaction last night.

Okay, this is crazy talk. Music is important, our heroes make us happy or sad, but you have to take moments, even insignificant ones, with your loved ones where you can. You have loads of time to grieve in whatever way you see fit.

And besides - Bowie would have wanted you to watch The Bachelor with your girlfriend.

I echo Cori, but I will say this: When Clarence Clemons died, I felt the same way you feel now. I didn't cry and I felt weird about that.

I think it was about a week later that I out of the blue started crying about it, and didn't stop for like 10 minutes.

Sometimes things just don't sink in right away. But don't be made at yourself about it.

Just saw a great clip of gathered fans singing Starman on TV.

Just read this, which I love:

Jodrell Bank have confirmed ground control will continue to call for him into the silent, eternal void, hoping for a signal.


(Jodrell Bank is an observatory in England, and I only know that because Elbow recorded a concert DVD there.)

I was never a huge fan, but respected Bowie immensely as artist. His death and the outpouring of love and appreciation for him has hit me harder than I anticipated, and it has me thinking about how I'll react when Bono goes. Truthfully, as much as I like to think I'll be OK when he passes, I can't say for certain how I will feel. I suspect it will be something akin to what Cobblestones expressed.

I'm kind of weird in that I don't usually shed tears for a beloved celebrity passing until I see a retrospective on the TV, like on the news. Mr. Bowie has been the same.

I *still* get teary-eyed thinking of the nightly news signing off with the final "I'm dancin' ... and singin' in the rain" from the movie when Gene Kelly died.



...... excuse me, I have something in my eye.

Thanks, guys

Got the night to myself tonight so might get some wine, read and listen.

And yeah, I had that exact same thought about Bono. Heh, we have probably all thought about that numerous times. I was thinking that Bono will probably be the only celebrity whose death hits me harder than Bowie's.

I am now wondering what it must have been like when Lennon died.

Paul McCartney is very old and I fear for my reaction when he goes.

I'd say he's immortal, but THAT'S WHAT WE SAID ABOUT BOWIE.

We will not discuss Bono dying. Thank you.

I'll never forget the night I was watching the TV Land awards, of all things, and they were doing a retrospective on John Ritter, and all of a sudden I just started bawling my eyes out. And it was so wtf because I mean..I liked Three's Company, sure, but...I had no special affinity for him or anything.
