The Goblin King and the Tall Man too!

First Lemmy and now this?!

David Bowie and Angus Scrimm have both passed this weekend.

Holy crap snacks!

His music, costumes, look, his roles as the Goblin King, Tesla, his cameo in Zoolanader or the numerous Venture Brothers references; what wasn't there to like about David Bowie?

What didn't this guy do? If they wrote Chuck Norris jokes about music, they would all be about David Bowie.  The dude just put out his 25th album and was 69! His body of work is all over the place and pretty damn amazing!

Then there was the news that Angus Scrimm has passed as well. 

I have no idea what is happening in the Phantasm movies, but one thing is constant. The Tall Man is equal parts awesome and creepy.

His role as the villainous Tall Man is good stuff! His army of midgies, his gas mask wearing grave diggers, the metallic death balls, his creepy look and inability to die no matter what all make for a great bad guy.

We did meet him last year and it was really cool to meet him. If he had called me "BOY!" I would have lost my mind and probably peed a little.

Gonna bust out Phantasm II and Labyrinth this week.

Sad times for music and horror indeed. Gone and but never forgotten.
