But we have to celebrate a dead pop star dont we?!
Now he is immortalized and the children will never understand just how truly unique and innovative the bow was!!
q the doco's and celebrity tributes!
you young kids dont know shit.
ziggy stardust whilst having a massive cocaine habit wearing a dress....RIP in piece you sweet man
this guy, mr individual... you ark up at everyone who offends your unique perspective mr left wing rollie pollie green saving cunt rash?
it was a question used to spark discussion.... mr im gonna get caught up on symbolism and semantics....
Insofar as it doesnt effect me, no i dont really care....
as an objective opinion on the matter, i can see how his death is a loss for the art community...
so the question becomes, do i care about community in general, the answer is yes...
so yeh i care, becuase i understand what his death signifies.... or atleast means to some
Well he was an edgy fag son of a bitch. He was one of us. So yeah, we care.
You talk like a 12 year old. This renders your opinion invalid.
>Also, this board is 18+, kiddo.
He pretty much created every trend in modern music for 40 years. His audience may not have been the largest with the general public but he was beyond influential to everyone that made music. Well, decent music anyway.
rude t b h, if he doesn't care that's fine. I personally care but no one has the obligation to care about art. However he was rude, too. You're two very rude fuckbois you should be ashamed
Says the loser 12 year old still stuck in mom's basement.
True. 12 year olds do however use faggot to insult others.
>You've been deducted, kiddo.
No. It was time for that fucker to stop making music. If this was the only way then I accept it.
Pop culture influences shouldn't last for more than a decade, and he's been doing shit for FORTY YEARS.
the world is changing kiddos.
are there any rockers left which are prepared to die on stage for a laugh?
lemmy, bowie, shit even amy winehouse whatever you think of her.
reminds me of that bill hicks set
>bill, why are you hating on the backstreet boys?
>They're so clean cut and a positive influence on the children
I don't. I realise he had cancer for over a year but I've seen aunts, uncles, grandparents die of cancer in misery and pain over the years.
I'm not getting melodramatic about some super rich singer who probably wasn't in any pain. I don't understand why society idolizes dead celebrities so much.
I liked some of his songs but that's about it. Not even trying to be edgy. You should only care when friends or family die.
Y'all know that David Bowie was the physical incarnation of Satan, right? All that shit about Spiders from Mars and Major Tom was all about fallen angels. He was Sgt. Pepper. Well, technically Hendrix was, at least he was Satan's power. Bowie was his mind, the brow of the super-brain.
And you called me a newfag?
I beheld Satan fall as lightning.
Lightning. Zigzag. Ziggy.
Of course we care that Bowie died. He put out some bad stuff, but when he was on the top of his game, he was a true musical genius.
Putting out a song this good when you're almost 70....pretty impressive.
Fuck yes we care faggot. The lights are going out from the world. Beauty and love and all the things worth fighting for lie upon their death beds and as people who brought them to the world wink out one by one they die...slowly....painfully. There will never be another David Bowie. There is no talent or art to compare to him in this day and age. And the world is poorer for it.
>voice and words
Enjoy your musical poetry, I'm not into that shit myself. I honestly believe, that IF the music can't convey the message by itself, and needs help from another performance art (literature), your musician is just shit.
He was a brit, and the brits want to stump the Trump... so no.
On the other hand, I sure love that China Girl...
Those pop failures were some of the best that he ever produced.
I'm sorry that you only care about what's on the pop charts, anon, but he means a lot to people who have been influenced by his music.
I know this is an anonymous board, but you just don't know who you're talking too, homie.
The stars keep falling.
I remember commenting on an Stone Temple Pilots video a while ago, saying how they got me back into playing bass from hearing their songs on the radio a lot while a work.
Next thing you know after Scott died, every comment is 'omg I just came to YT to listen after I heard'
Fucking band wagonsists.
My parents are the same, all the sudden they want to listen to STP, Velvet revolver and Motorhead.
I better buckle up for the non stop Bowie I'll be hearing now.
>not that I'm not a fan of his music
>I also thought he was amazing in 'The Prestige' as Nikola Tesla
I care. That's good enough reason for me to be sad.
Do you care, OP?
Yes? Good. You're human, maybe Bowie has impacted your life through his music. It's okay to mourn his death.
No? That's fine also. You didn't know him personally, so why should you?
I think that just about covers it.
>Do we care?
wasn't a fan.
don't care if he died.
i don't get hung up on celebrities, no matter how "influential" they might have been.
I care. Most don't. Ill be me. You be you. Ill grieve.
the faggots and edgelords will ask who he is and what he did
the ones who have any sense of anything will recognize the impact this man had on music as it exists today. I don't think younger people quite realize how many stars today emulate a small fraction of what this guy was.
Not even slightly. Overrated as fuck. Don't think he released 1 song I'd give higher than a C+. Bland, uninspired crap. Magic Dance is his top song, and that was written for a children's movie
>tfw the only bowie song i liked wasn't sung by bowie
Yes, everyone has to care. Cause that was a fucking genius right there, if there's any. Go listen to all his albums, douchebags, and come here and tell us that this isn't true.
Pro tip: You can't.
I'm sad that he's gone, but his music will live on for such a long time.
>Lazarus of Bethany, also known as Saint Lazarus or Lazarus of the Four Days, is the subject of a prominent miracle attributed to Jesus in the Gospel of John, in which Jesus restores him to life four days after his death.
Yes, he was a pioneer for a societal movement that transcended generations. He was a rock n' roll icon whose quality of music rivals the all-time best. His badass life, from start to finish, should be remembered in all senses. Deuces David!
You're quite the pretentious little faggot
I'm 31, and hated his music all my life EVEN THOUGH I'm into rock.
If pretentiousness means I like music that speaks for itself i.e. pure, unadulterated music, I'm the most pretentious faggot on this Earth.
When it comes to old schoolers like Bowie those songs that go up right before/shortly after death could've been written ages ago. You know what I mean? Could've be coincidental. OR he could've been on his deathbed and signed off having the song released.
Jareth is... kill? ;____;7
RIP Goblin King. Your jailbate taming crotch will be missed, but live on in Blu-ray re-released classic history.
My cat has decided that it cares, and so now i do....
Lets start a revolution....
He had Dexter perform it on Colbert. Seemed kinda weird.
It's because Michael C. Hall was performing on broadway in a play that David Bowie produced. Incidentally the character that Michael C. Hall is playing is the same one that Bowie played himself in the 1976 movie "The Man Who Fell to Earth".
The broadway play is sort of a sequel.
There are 2 good things that stick out in my mind about Bowie.
The first is his work on a computer game called Omikron: The Nomad Soul.
I heard that the company approached him to use his music in their game. And he showed interest in it. He wrote songs specifically for the game and even stars in it. All for no extra money.
I also remember something about him rewriting one of his songs for the movie Starship Troopers after they asked him to use it. Again, for no extra money. It's the Graduate Party scene, I think.
I was never into his music, but you have to respect the guy. He was the first musician to realize that the Internet was a way of connecting with his fans.
I'm pretty sure he was the first musician to ever give away and mp3 for free, too.
Music like this is forever timeless. Its quite strange how much impact this guy had on my life..
Probably some my earliest memories were my parents listening to Bowie records
If you aren't sad about the death of David Bowie, I feel sorry for you. If you don't appreciate the art he has blessed us with you simply have no taste, and you probably listen to shit like skrillex or slipnot or similar, which makes you a faggot
Fuck man, Ace of Spades was one of my favorite songs. Good night, sweet prince.
I do. I feel like an old friend died. Wifey and me loved him, his music, his life story. He is more than just an 80's popstar, this man was Ziggy Stardust. This guy was the thin white duke. The Goblin King. Alladin Sane and the halloween jack.
This dude was the late 20th century incarnated, and if you did your homework you would be amazed at the life he led.
I don't even care if this is bait, yes I'm mad. He's performed with multiple bands, has HUNDREDS of songs, has one of the most memorable songs of all-times in Rock (and pop culture), and was a moderately decent actor.
>just started playing MGSV
>really enjoy the intro song, The Man Who Sold The World
>find out It's David Bowie
>start listening to more Bow
>a week and a half later he dies
If the Labryth is still on Netflix, I'll watch it tonight just for you buddy.
Fuck no. I don't like his music. Have never enjoyed it and won't pretend to. I guarantee at least half of you fags are just trying to look deep so you can feel good that you're culturally enriched or some shit. Just because was a "rebel" and dressed funny and had somewhat meaningful lyrics people act like he was some kind of fucking God and everyone should worship him or else they're heartless bastards.
Family is who you surround yourself with.
He was a constant throughout my life when my "family" abandoned me and no real friends there for me.
Bowie was there. He was always there.
Way too many to list. A few of my favorites are Led Zeppelin, Hendrix, The Doors, STP, Nirvana, the Foo Fighters, Alice in Chains, Creedence Clearwater Revival, queens of the stone age, and the list goes on and on. Some of them seem kind of memey but whatever
Bowie is better than all of those. Well I guess not now that he's dead, but you know what I mean.
> implying rap is actually good music
The loss of this white man is a great hit to the white community. The niggers and Jews organized his death. All niggers and Jews will suffer for this atrocity. Whites will have justice.
See, you faggots just proved my point. "Look at me! I love deep music! If a song doesn't have some kind of deep meaning it's absolute shit! If you don't like what I like it's absolute shit! Bowie master race!" You also act like that is literally all I listen to.
Anything that sounds unqiue or artistic is shit to you pretty much.
You'd probably think the song "Lady Grinning Soul" is shit because it's not power chords.
Literally the only good band you listed was the Doors.
And they are like the bowie of their era. Pushing boundaries musically.
Ofcourse you probably only know 'break on through to the other side"
Or maybe you'll do that anyway while his music is playing.
Can't like that enough haha
His nigress is now available
people who like decent things care. /b has the worst taste in music and considers anime the high arts. most don't care and that's good. if they liked Bowie it would because he was mediocre enough for them to understand.
And I don't care what some faggot on the Web thinks about my music taste. As long as I enjoy what I'm listening to I don't give a fuck about what some neckbeard on the other side of a screen thinks. You're probably over there blasting fucking ELO hoping people will notice how different and special you are
See? You're being dumb. I never said what you were thinking, I just don't appreciate rap "songs". We have different taste afterall and I still find amusing how the music world has changed thanks to those fucking faggots who made bieber famous by singing fucking "baby" or those fucking faggots of the one direction who basically destroyed and raped the concept of rock band. Jesus.
Seeing what yiu listen to I can understand why you do not like Bowie. You like rock, hard rock, something that Bowie has never done. Well I think you put The Doors in it too and there's an interesting similarity between them and Bowie. But I understand that some kind of strange pop that Bowie may be knowb for is not to your taste, but please do not assume that everyone that says they are moved my his death onky say it tonbe edgy or something.
I am not a great fan of Bowie but I've liked literraly everything I've heard from him. I'm gonna have to get around what his done now because I know only a few albums and songs here and there and I know I'm missing out.
And I listen to every band you cited (except Foo Fighters, I only know 2 songs, I have to get around too).
Saw QoTSA 2 years ago, it was amazing.
Why are you so fucking absolutely butt devastated? You're a walking cry for attention.
You're nothing special and you have just generic taste in rock music that you can't even share much of anything with others.
I've listened to all the stuff you've liked before, yet I also know more music.
Your shitty broad taste means not being able to share new things with your friends.
I most certainly do. Been a Bowie fan since I was 15 or so and I'm 28 now. Most of my other musical preferences have changed since then but his music has stood like a monolith; the one artist I never forgot. Cliched as fuck but his music is a soundtrack to my life. Also, I had to put one of my dogs down today and I found out about David an hour later. Fuck 2016.
Lol okay faggot you really don't like to acknowledge anything that doesn't support your claim do you? I specifically stated that those are not the only bands I listen to. And a song doesn't have to be a fucking snowflake to be a good song. Congrats on proving that point for me too. "Oh look at me, I listen to DISCRETE and PROGRESSIVE music!" If that's why you're listening to a song you should fucking kill yourself.
even though the music, the ideas, the iconography remains, the man is gone, and he takes a very small yet very tangible piece of all that with him, something that always seems to say, never again...
According to whoever his wife was in the 70s, he gave up his body as a vessel for entities of light from beyond our earth who take over lots of rich/influential bodies so as to coax humanity towards their goals.
Jesus Christ how many times do I have to explain that what I listed is not all that I listen to? You faggots love to twist words to fit your autistic arguments. And I don't give a fuck how much music you know or how much of a contribution I am to my friends. I listen to music for me and me alone. I don't try to impress people with my music taste. That's just fucking sad.
He was writing shit like this 45 years before you "edgy" faggots were crying for rekt threads so fuck off.
Now you run from your window
To the porcelain bowl
And you're sick from your ears
To the red parquet floor
And the Braque on the wall
Slides down your front
And eats through your belly
It's very catching
>If that's why you're listening to a song you should fucking kill yourself.
I listen to songs because I enjoy them
I also listen to songs I don't enjoy just to analyze them.
I am a smarter human being than you so I can listen to more complicated song structures and more artistic and eccentric styles of music and appreciate them.
Sharing good music with your friends is sad?
It's not about impressing someone, it's about giving them something they can enjoy and showing them something you think they might like.
It's one of the kindest things you can do for a friend, and it helps them discover more things that they like.
Your autistic ass can't show them anything because you have limited knowledge.
>"Hey guys have you heard 'Purple Haze' by Hendrix"
>"No fucking shit"
Ah yes, by simply reading a few of my posts online you have fully evaluated me as a person. Face it. I said something you didn't like so you got mad and replied to me to try to show off your "superior" taste in music. Well guess what faggot, music taste is not set in stone. Anyone can listen to a song and appreciate it's meaning, that doesn't mean they have to like how it sounds. Fuck off you wannabe snowflake
Marylin wishes. He's probably resigned himself to the fact that he's wasted his entire life being embarrassing to serve the devil but he'll never meet Satan, only lesser demons who keep Hot Topic open.
You might not. However, speaking for myself and from the perspective of appreciating music and its history we've lost someone who had a major impact on music today, it's a pretty big deal.
Who will console his fine brown godess?
>you got mad and replied to me to try to show off your "superior" taste in music.
>No I haven't
I didn't mention one artist I liked other than the doors, How am I showing off? Don't you think I'd be trying to force what I like down your throat?
I am literally just calling you out for the small minded idiot you are. Your musical taste reflects that.
Here's your reply
>hur dur he put hendrix on the list he must only know purple haze
I'm actually fucking tired of that song after hearing it on the radio 4 times a week ot literally any time someone brings up that they listen to him. And I never said it was sad to share music. I said it's sad to listen to music to stand out and look different. Anyone can fucking look up discrete underground music and claim that they like it just to stand out.
If my memory serves correctly.
