There are many ways to celebrate David Bowie’s birthday: listen to his music, watch one of his movies, write slash fiction based on the famous photo of the Thin White Duke hanging with Lou Reed and Iggy Pop, try to make sense of what the hell happened on Earthling. Or, perhaps, you could choose to ignore it, because every passing year brings us that much closer to a world without Bowie in it, and that world sounds scary and cold.
Man, things got dark there. Sorry. To make amends, here’s a GIF of David Bowie with a kitten on his head.
