    I read that he died. I didn't really know who he was, but since I was trained as a musician I was interested in reading the report. Now that I'm old-er, his age doesn't seem that old to me, I read he died of the covid? I did like the music for Chariots of Fire. I don't know Blade Runner (not too interested in the movies), but I'll look for the music now.

    I am so sad.
    I will ask the mountains for some comfort.

    Just wondering since so many are so sad that he died, do you think he should live forever?

    Why would you conclude that just because I'm sad that someone died that I think they should have lived forever?

    I first heard him in Cosmos with Carl Sagan. Apparently he had a fascination for space.

    Blade Runner was a pretty awesome movie set in a steampunk dystopian world.

    I loved his opening to Cosmos:



    This gives me nostalgia for Carl Sagan.
