Albert Brooks Tweeted:  "R.I.P David Bowie.  Took creativity and wrung its neck."   Bowie, 18 months after being diagnosed with cancer, died Sunday at the age of 69.  "The legendary musician known for musical innovation and experimentation with his image," left his mark for sure.  Music wise I'm a fan of Boys Keep Swinging, Oh! You Pretty Things and Space Oddity (below).  Space Oddity overplayed?  Nah.  It's brilliant.   Goodnight, Ziggy.              news     

Principle in the type: "The more often we see the things around us - even the beautiful and wonderful things - the more they become invisible to us.  That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world:  the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds - even those we love.  Because we see things so often, we see them less and less."     Joseph B. Wirthlin     


(Sidenote:  here's Space Oddity with Kristin Wiig in a so inspiring scene from one of me'all'time favorite movies The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.  Yes, it shows Spanish sub-titles, because A) maybe you speak Spanish? and B) other versions showed too many clips of the movie and it's most important you see it yourself.)
