"I am also a big fan of this show,because of Fincher and the detective work,even if the show skirts very close sometimes to murderer fetish..."-Jono

"I love this show.I binged 7 of the 9 episodes and could have finished but I wanted to savor it a little longer.It's such an engrossing show and beautifully filmed"-Raul

Curio: Bowie Forever

Pt 1 Goodbye to Bowie via Velvet Goldmine
Pt 2 Goodbye to Bowie....and Curio,for now

Alexahere,still reeling over the loss of David Bowie.It really took the steam out of me today,as I'm sure it did a lot of you.He was such a touchstone that it felt as if he would never die.But he lives on as inspiration.

And so too might Curio.I hope it does.If not in this exact form.This weekly arts & crafts series,which Nathaniel invited me to do years ago,has had a long run at TFE but I must move on for 2016.(Parenthood really alters the life of a cinephile.)

But back to Bowie.I've been enjoying seeing some of this inspiration filtered through the minds of others,so here are a few some beautiful and fun curios -- everything from a career spanning animated gif,to realistic dolls,and more traditional fan art.

Celebrate the icon with wide eyesafter the jump...

I really hope you stay on and continue this,Alexa.It's one of my favourite columns.

Amir -- unfortunately Alexa did decide to move on hence the note about doing so.Curio will go quiet for a bit and then we'll decide what to do.I love the column too.
