RIP Prince :(

Here we go again. Another music icon has been lost. I may not have been a huge fan of Prince, but I did enjoy some of his songs, and I know what a tremendous artist he was and how much of an influence on the music world he was. He will be sorely missed 😦



RIP Alan Rickman

On the heels of the tragic loss of  David Bowie comes the loss of another great Brit, actor Alan Rickman. I will miss him so much. I loved him in so many roles. I will always love and remember him as Severus Snape in  Harry Potter, of course. And as Hans Gruber in Die Hard. Also as the Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. And as the voice of Marvin the robot in the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy movie. And – one of my most favorite of his roles, next to Snape – as Alexander Dane (Dr. Lazarus) in Galaxy Quest.

RIP Alan. You will be terribly missed 😦




RIP David Bowie – Another Great Gone

It seems as if, over the past month or so, we’ve lost some music greats (and some personal favorites of mine). First was Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots, then Lemmy of Motorhead, then Natalie Cole. They left some great music behind them and they will be missed. May these greats rest in peace.

And now, David Bowie has left us, as well, leaving a great musical legacy in his wake, too.

Mr. Bowie, sir, you will be greatly missed.  Rest in peace, Ziggy Stardust.



And I will always remember him as Jareth, the Goblin King
