Would you Nomi…?

He came from out of space
to save the human race…..

August 6th was the anniversary of the death of Klaus Nomi. Another brilliant man who died too young. Why is it all the people I admire die so young! He actually had a very sad death – he was one of the first celebrities who died of AIDS at a time where no one knew what AIDS were. They called it the gay cancer and his friends thought they would get the illness if they were near him so he died alone in a cold hospital. He was a pastry chef, and a trained opera singer who was told to not sing so high but he said fuck it and created his own persona and style of new wave music. He even worked with David Bowie! By the way I love Bowie’s jawline when he sings – its so weird!

There is even a movie about his life, its in 11 short parts on youtube but worth it. Kinda makes you dislike his friends though. You can watch it here.

OKAY for something less sad! I got 2 free tickets to see The Collector before it came out at the cinema, actually a few months back I won 2 free tickets to Away We Go and now Houston Press sends me free tickets to movies every now and then. Not sure why. ANYWAY…I took my shiny Emily! It was actually a stupid movie – no plot no story. Just random gore with weird cgi spiders which made me and Emily laugh. There were some really gross parts that would make me giggle but as I scanned the theatre to see reactions I noticed people were cringing so this made me wonder if I a huge weirdo. All in all pretty bad and fucked up movie so don’t believe the reviews about the bad guy being the next Micheal Meyers -______-; Its late and I hate that I have to be at work early tomorrow!

P.S. my blog is officially a year old~!! After the 7 DEADLY SINS Challenge I should make a new lay eh?
