So 2016.  Been pretty shit so far with the loss of David Bowie and Alan Rickman.

I was a Bowie fan from the age of 11 yrs old,  I remember pulling down all the Osmonds posters so I could stick up the Bowie ones (hee! - poor Mum must have wondered what had happened for such a change) Bought everything I could get my hands on - had all the albums on vinyl up to Scary Monsters, but they were lost in the division of the spoils in the divorce. After that I had tape/CD's.  Came so close to seeing him in concert in MK (My best friend did go but the ass-hat ex wouldn't pay the touts for tickets.)  Sadly kind of lost touch with his work from Tin Machine onwards which is a shame.

He was only 69 as was Alan Rickman. Gone too soon, a loss to us all.  Couldn't call myself a 'hard core fan' of Alan Rickman but really loved his work & feel for all the potterheads. Those of us in the Whedonverse know how it feels.

In other news, I'll be going over the vids posted here to replace all the Vimeo embeds as they wiped the account back in Autumn sometime. That's what you get for not passwording your entries I guess. YouTube have done a content sweep and now just about every vid has copyright notice on it ( I assume some change/ monetization is planned?) The new flags are all Fox etc, at least they've not been taken down....  yet .  

Bought a new camera but need to spend time finding out how it works. Only had it a couple of days but the Automatic mode is nifty. Perhaps I'll post some photos of the Lake District (we're there this weekend) if any are worth seeing.

I'd like to see them.

I, too, have a best friend who got to see Bowie live (during his Ziggy Stardust days) whereas I missed him. Still rankles after all these years - even more so now he's gone.

Bowie did a gig in Romford near where I used to live but I would have been too young to go to it plus we were broke.

The chance to see him years later was so annoying as the tickets weren't unreasonable - he just didn't want to buy them as he was cheap.
