So it was rather bizarre to me that Bowie would pass away the year the Sharks finally win their first NRL grand final trophy.
'Heroes' was released on my 13th birthday in 1977 and the Sharks would win their way into the 2016 NRL grand final by beating the Cowboys on my birthday this year.

But it was a shock to me also that Carrie Fisher and
Debbie Reynolds would bookend this weird year by passing away within a day of each other.
I used to like the song 'Singing in the Rain' until I saw
'A Clockwork Orange', as I've written about here -
The Clockwork Orange Effect?
But to be honest I think 2017 is going to make 2016 look boring when it comes to bad news and celebrity deaths.
Let's hope I'm wrong , but buckle the f#ck up and Happy New Year.

Talk about postcards from the edge.
Life is one weird journey it seems.
And on a synchy note, I watched my copy of 'Watership Down' on DVD after seeing the author of the book Richard Adams passed away on Christmas eve.
