Alan Rickman and David Bowie died this week which sort of makes me think that god has something against 69 year old British Dudes who are awesome. I don’t have anything funny to say about the loss of these two beautiful, uniquely talented, stunning man-creatures. I just wanted to mention them, mourn them and take a moment to say FUCK CANCER! Fuck you for striking both these men down, fuck you for taking so many lives every day that don’t get media attention, the lives that go unnoticed, fuck you for defying medical and scientific odds and technology, fuck you for tearing our loved ones away from us far too soon, fuck you for the children who are left motherless and the mothers who are forced to mourn their children, fuck you for the families you leave broken and the scars that will never heal, fuck you for all the detritus you leave in your wake but fuck you most of all for the little ones. The completely innocent lives that you take are the most damning, the most enraging, the most confounding and the most tragic. We may never understand your motives but we will never cease working to stop you in your stupid, fucking tracks! FUCK YOU!!!!! FUCK YOU, CANCER, FUCK YOU!!!!!
Enjoy these neoclassical style paintings of Mr. Bowie and Mr. Rickman (no, neither of them held the Queen’s title of “Sir” however BOTH men were offered a knighthood and both, for various reasons, turned it down).
