Let me make it plain/gotta make way for the homo superior

Argh I missed the birthday of one of my favorite people in the whole of the world yesterday. Maybe my favorite rock and roll star EVAH! So here it is a day late, dollar short video tribute to the glory that is DAVID F'N BOWIE!!!

Here is the incredibly old school video for my favorite Bowie song of all-time "Life on Mars"

A recent performance of the still awesome "Starman"

"Five Years" from back in 1972

The movie that introduced me to Bowie, Labyrinth, as a result of this film I still kind of think of him as king of the Goblins

And here Wes Anderson brilliantly uses "Queen Bitch" and an homage to Buckaroo Banzai to inexplicably create an awesome ending to the sadly underrated Life Aquatic.

Top 20 is being worked on, don't worry.

Here's the thing: I was inspired by this post to go back and watch the end of Buckaroo Banzai, and I'm not entirely convinced that Wes Anderson DIDN'T direct it.
