If you haven’t seen it yet – please please watch “Blade Runner”. It’s my favourite film if all time.
My favourite quote:
“I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.”
So i have a little Irish blood thanks to my dad and I have been to Ireland a few times and one of my favourite cities in the world would have to be: Galway.
Doesn’t really get very much publicity but it’s an utterly outstanding city in Ireland:
I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can beat them, just for one day
We can be Heroes, just for one day
Even Eric Lippert (C# guru) was touched by the loss of the great man:
Memories of 1984 come back to me – hearing Bowie for the first time and coding some crazy text adventures on my C-64 – sheltering in my glorious little room with just me, my computer and David Bowie. The wild world was outside.
If you haven’t listened Bowie it’s never too late.
Good bye sir, thanks for everything.
