Darker Skies

What a week, huh?

We start off on a bad note with the death of music legend David Bowie, and then reinforce that sense of shittiness in the universe with the death of the amazingly talented Alan Rickman.

I wasn’t heavily into Bowie, but I fully recognized the influence he had over not just the world of music, but pop culture in general. As for Rickman, I first discovered him through Harry Potter, but as I became more familiar with his filmography I really came to understand just how great an actor he was. He was one of those people I could watch in just about anything.

Losing both of them pretty much back to back is a horrible start to the New Year. And both taken by cancer, which has already caused me enough grief in my life.

I wish it would just fuck off already.
