David Bowie passed away from cancer at the age of 69 on Sunday. Mr. Bowie was a legend in the industry. He had a god-given talent for speaking to the outsiders of this world: the misfits, the sexual adventurers, the space explorers, the road-wearied vagabonds, etc; and all this was given life through the medium of what he fittingly termed—genuine soul.

His son, Duncan Jones, confirmed his death on Twitter with a saddening, yet deeply touching tweet:

As Bowie toured cross the world he not only transcended genres, but also eras with his continual commitment to changing up his wardrobe often as possible—from German Expressionism to comedy dell'arte to Japanese kimonos to badass space suits, Bowie wore it all, and stood tall and proud as a testament to challenging the norm.

If you were to settle on an anthem from all his work it was 'Changes' off his 1971 album 'Hunky Dory,' which iconically professed:

"Turn and face the strange / Ch-ch-changes / Oh look out now you rock and rollers / Pretty soon now you're gonna get older."

Mr. Bowie's endlessly changing stage persona inspired later, more colorfully expressive artists like Madonna and Lady Gaga.

His last album 'Blackstar,' a collaboration with a jazz quartet, and exploratory in nature, as is often the case with Bowie, was up to be honored at Carnegie Hall on March 31st.

On a side note when paying your respects to the deceased, and on live television no less, you should probably make it a point to get the person's name right.

Yes, this is a shoutout to Fiona Winchester, a Heart FM newscaster, who stumbled, and fumbled when she was recorded saying, 'David Cameron has died…D-D-David Bowie.' I mean are you fu*king kidding me Winchester?

Anyways, Bowie was a hall of fame rock and roller (quite literally from 1996 onwards), who never quit with aiming higher, producing more music, and connecting with fans—both new and old--through his art. He was loved by many, and he'll be missed immensely.

Rest in peace.

The Netflix documentary series, 'Making A Murderer,' has been nothing if not a productivity-robbing, cultural sensation since it dropped in December.

If you're one of those cave-dwellers who resides under a rock you should know that the documentary focuses on Steven Avery, a Wisconsin man, who might've been framed for crimes he didn't commit a few times.

The frontman for The Black Keys, Dan Auerbach, and his new blues-rock band, The Arcs took the global bingeing efforts to a new high with their recent released track, "Lake Superior."

The song references the Steven Avery criminal case, and the perverse, if not corrupt way the police and the criminal justice system considered as an entity, handled it.

Auerbach's vocals, as usual, don't disappoint; and manage to carry through song, the full emotional depth of this emotionally-riveting case.

David Bowie's back as an exceptionally tortured artist with his latest music video/creepy masterpiece "Lazarus", directed by Johan Renck.

To put it lightly this is a highly disturbing four-minute montage of what the most dramatic operation room might look like behind the curtains. But Bowie's singing, and he's a genius so it's totally chill.

Chock-filled with convulsions, manic saxophones, and hospital beds, which have always been kind of creepy in themselves; you've got to give it to Bowie for returning to the scene with a bang.

This track's a glimpse off his new album, which comes out tomorrow, 'Blackstar"' and yes, on his 69th birthday. F*ck yeah David Bowie.

The video's director, Renck, also added, "one could only dream about collaborating with a mind like that; let alone twice. Intuitive, playful, mysterious and profound… I have no desire to do any more videos knowing the process never ever gets as formidable and fulfilling as this was. I've basically touched the sun."

Dave Grohl gets ace of spades tattoo to honor Motorhead's Lemmy's recent death

Rock Legend Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister's untimely passing on Tuesday has everyone still reeling. The fact that it was just mere days after doctors discovered his aggressive cancer, and less than a month after wrapping up Motorhead's European Tour. The band has declared without Lemmy there is no future for Motorhead, but that he will live in on in everyone's memories.

Beloved by many, two of the most touching tributes have come from a post by Alice Cooper, and Foo Fighter's Dave Grohl's 'Ace of Spades' tattoo.

Lemmy was truly a one-of-a-kind in rock 'n' roll. He was innovative, true to his art and continually relevant even...

When Anthony Mish, Seattle Seahawks mega-fan, created The Hawk House he went all out. According to his GoFundMe, he's put in $30,000 or roughly 175,000 Christmas lights and then spent 400 hours blanketing his house, all as a tribute to his favorite team.



Typically Mish's extravagant display is on from 5pm - 9pm weeknights and 5pm - 10:30pm on weekends. Which leaves some neighbors less than enthused. Mish claims that while drivers love the display, he's working to "tone it down" to satisfy some neighbor's complaints.

Of course when the Seahawks are playing on Sundays, Mish changes up the display a bit to support his team.

Last year Youtuber Tom BetGeorge put on a lightshow much like this, but even more intense, with 100,000 lights. With the franchise very possibly peaking BetGeorge came back this season with a new show. Devito's mess of a maddening Christmas light show in 'Deck the Halls' would pale in comparison to this.

Give it up for BetGeorge; the force is strong with this one.
