  1. L—Love him because he helped give me life. When I was 13, and shit was bad, he was there after my very first viewing of Labyrinth–whether he knows it or not. And the distraction of his amazing discography (this was 1988, so I had a BIG album list to try and get without the benefit of the internet)as well as my Bowie dictionary (a journal of words found in his songs that I needed to research, such as 'frock coat' and 'phallus'), scrapbooks with stolen pics from library books and magazines, and his creative visuals ("and my tissue is rotting, where the rats chew my bones. And my eye sockets empty, see nothing but pain" BLEW MY MIND) all kept me going when little else did. Great job Stephanie!
