Did you cry when bowie died? Sorry if its out of left field.

I actually wasn’t aware of David Bowie’s music until after he died. I had barely even heard of the man, and I never really knew what he was famous for. I’m kind of angry at myself for that. I never had any previous connections with his music, so it was hard for me to feel anything when he died.

He was the patron saint of all my favorite fellow travelers: the freaks, the fags, the dykes, the queers, the weirdos of all stripes, and that most dangerous creature of all: the artist. He was the crown prince(ss) of the unusual. He was so marvelously, spectacularly weird, and he gave so many oddballs, including this one, hope.
