David Bowie Is - Movie Night

On the first year of David Bowie's death anniversary I booked a ticket to see a documentary that was shot in 2013 when he was still alive based on an exhibition at Victoria Albert Museum in London.

Of course I wore this exuberant velvet suit combined with silver boots (not the ones in the picture :D ) that I have recently purchased to mark the flamboyant nature of Bowie. People were staring. But it wasn't about me.

It's so sad to realise that someone so great and courageous in his ideas is no longer with us. So soon, so fast, so unexpected. This documentary hasn't gone into a great detail of Bowie's life. It only showed us, how little you need to embrace who you really are in this world. And that is the ultimate belief in the ludicrous idea that he could change the world, which he successfully achieved proving to us that it is indeed possible.

The most striking thing about it all was that... everything, all of his lyrics and video ideas started with a piece of paper and a childish handwriting. It was that simple. How was he so extraordinarily ordinary to the rest of us... is very hard to comprehend!

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
