R.I.P. David Bowie.
I've never been a huge fan of Bowie in terms of listening to his music or following his career, but Jareth the Goblin King and Labyrinth have been such a massive part of my childhood/adulthood that his death has left me feeling a little hollow. To say that Labyrinth had an impact on me would be an understatement. My love of Labyrinth predates even Peter Pan, and as strange as this is to admit, Bowie's sparkling, hauntingly villainous character has served as a comfort to me for years. Thank you, David, for bringing such an interesting character to life for all of us to enjoy. Thank you for your music, your work, your presence, and your impact on this world.
I hope you're out there among the stars, like you always wanted.
