Apparently the last picture taken of him. On his birthday just a few days ago by his wife Iman.

Has anyone read Bowie's posts on the fan forum Teenage Wildlife? He posted as the user 'Sailor.'   Here's some of the self-mocking hilarity.&#1

  Love how he goes into the closet in Lazarus. Very strange now that he's dead.

Bowie was charismatic in Scorsese's The Last Temptation:

He was electrifying in The Prestige:

He was hypnotizing in The Man Who Fell To Earth:

He was one of those people who just exploded on screen. The way he looked, walked, the voice.

He will mainly be remembered for his music, and rightly so. But his contributions to film are of great value too.

Wow, it's hard to believe just a few days after being so full of life he is gone.  Terrible illness.  Legendary man.

We watched the Blackstar and Lazarus videos last night.  Cool, surreal stuff.

 

Then we starting trying to find videos for his old hits on youtube.  Found the videos for Space Oddity (two different versions, for two different versions of the song), Let's Dance, Heroes, Dancing In The Street (what an embarassing video...), and a Soul Train performance of Young Americans.  Couldn't find a video for Changes, Fame or a few others.

 

I've never listened to any of his albums before, I should check some out sometime.

He's one of the artists I really love but never managed to purchase an album for. Just the other day I was thinking about amending that and picking up his discography, like I did for The Doors, not too long ago. Been listening to the Best Of Bowie compilation and a handful of other songs for years, though.

 

I absolutely adore these two covers of his music:

But ... you are familiar with his music, right? 

 

Obviously.  Please read my posts more carefully before saying something like that as I must have mentioned 8-10 or more songs of his in it!

You can be familiar with the radio hits and singles without ever listening to an album. For example, Pink Floyd and The Who are more rewarding listening to as albums instead of the greatest hits. But I've tried to listen to Aerosmith albums but only have the patience for the radio hits. 

 

I'm guilty of that too. I have a lot of Bowie songs but don't own a single album, and only ever downloaded miscellaneous songs. I did order Blackstar last night, but it's no surprise that every Bowie album at Amazon is out of stock.

Which you could have learned thanks to your exploration on youtube. :)
