>Think anon was a slowpoke about Sovereign
>Google Bowie just to be safe
Well fuck man.
Bowie facts: he though Nirvana's "Man Who Sold The World" was one of the greatest covers of all time and made him realize he had fans outside the UK, but it pissed him off that a generation of 'murricans thought it was a Nirvana song he did covers of.
Holy fuck it was his birthday just the other day, what the fuck man
DIO IS DEAD?
Just kidding, I am really sad that he lost battle with cancer. I will wish his friends and familly good life.
Fucking cancer. Fuck that shit. Fuck that shit so hard
Ziggy played for time
Jiving us that we were voodoo
The kids were just crass
He was the nazz
With God-given ass
He took it all too far
But, boy, could he play guitar
Making love with his ego
Ziggy sucked up into his mind, ah
Like a leper messiah
When the kids had killed the man
I had to break up the band
Well yeah. He just released Blackstar to rave reviews.
Considering he was fighting cancer for a good while he had pretty fucking good timing to go when he did. He breathed his last knowing he still had it.
I'm a total wreak because of this, goddamn.
Are you fucking kidding me with this shit?
We just lost Lemmy... now this. I can't stop the tears /co/, I can't stop the tears!
I'm losing my shit over this.
Name a way that Bowie impacted you, if you can.
Under Pressure calms me down when on a plane that's landing.
I have no right NO for this. I have no image for this.
Only loss. Only the loss where legends once dwelled in this world, sang in this world. We've lost a living fairy tale.
I was born in 1982.
Bowie was the background music of my childhood.
He was this odd, strange man, like me, that lived in his own little mental world, like me.
You'd be surprised how impacted we can be.
WHO ELSE IS /DRINKINGTHEPAINAWAY/ ?
Th-they already filmed him judging another Walk Off in Zoolander 2, right?
Space Oddity is no fucking doubt, my favorite song ever.
It's just so goddamn brilliantly written. The metaphor comparing drug abuse to an astronaut getting lost in space just works so well. I just get goosebumps every time I listen to it.
Goodnight sweet goblin prince.
(puppets are /co/)
This movie was the first i'd seen and heard of David Bowie. My Uncle was into most of his stuff and really put me onto it. I still have his Lets Dance CD that i got from my uncle years ago!
Oh and Cancer can get fucked.
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do
He kept it under wraps
godamn and all 3 had shit coming out this year
2016 off to a great FUCKING start. How many beloved shall we lose this year as the last?
Without hesitation I'd have to place him as my favorite musician. Sound and Vision is also without a doubt my favorite song of all time.
He also had a big impact on a friend of mine's life, as when she saw Labyrinth when she was little Bowie taught her what the difference between boys and girls was.
Literally too good for this bitch ass world.
There were a lot of greats too, like many other great artists with decade spanning careers. The way i see it is, this guy had a long span of accomplishments to look back to on his death bed, and he will be remembered for years to come. How many of us will be able to say the same when our time comes.
I hate he died of Cancer, i watched family members die of that shit and it's not an easy way to go.
I hate that shit.
Celebrities looking fine and great. And in the next day, they are dead as a door knob.
I haven't listened to Black Star yet, and now I'm not sure I'll be able to. He wrote his own obituary with that album. I don't know if I'll be able to listen to it.
Fuck, I'm just in shock. I can't handle this shit. Fuck
i just read this and think about venture bros too.
i can`t believe he is dead, just 2 ays ago i was speaking with a friend how young he always looke, i though he was inmortal or something, idn`t even know he had cancer
no I think it'd be better that he at least lives past the GB remake releasing otherwise it'll be a success thanks to the Sony guiltrip of seeing the remake in the memory of Bill Murray
>this was the final track on Blackstar
God fucking dammit
My money is on Paul. Then Ringo's dark pact with Satan to be the most popular Beatle will be fulfilled when he's the only one still alive.
I give him 18 hours.
Though I'm past one hundred thousand miles
I'm feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
probably one of the lyrics that have touched me most in my life. rest in peace.
remembering the good times.
>expect thread about how cartoon bowie died cause they couldn't get him to voice the character
>google some tunes
>tfw you're getting to the age where everyone you admire is dying
Pls no one else die this year
This year has already started off shitty with the death of Starman. RIP in peace
>The guy from Labyrinth just turned into an eagle
This is hitting me hard you guys
Oh fuck /co/
I don't have an appropriate image
I was lucky enough to find Bowie instead Linkin Park or something in my early high school years. He got me through some rough times. Never stopped loving his stuff.
Bowie would have loved SU and Sucrose is a huge fan,and not just Sucrose but the world in its' entirety fucking loved Bowie.
You get your shit the fuck out of here and show some god damned respect
Underground is best
>two recent celebrity deaths
>both were musicians
>one died 4 days after his birthday
>the other died 2 days after his birthday
>one was 70
>the other was 69
>both died of cancer
Calling it now, the next celebrity to die will die of cancer at the age of 68 on the EXACT date of his birthday.
Not only that, Bowie just released a
killer /spoiler] album
>Come to /co/
>This is the first goddamn post I see
Guys, no, no. Ever year it's like this. I'm sick of coming here only to hear Robin Williams died or James Avery died. I want out.
Suffragette City is probably one of my favorite songs and it became sort of an rousing anthem for me.
I felt pretty shitty about myself but it got me to get off my ass, work on my art, get over a girl who I realized didn't even respect me, and focus on what's important. Now I'm back in school, confident, studying what I love and working at a job I actually enjoy. I know it's corny, and I know it shouldn't have taken me a fucking song with a killer fucking bass line to wise up, but listening to it made me feel like I could be cooler. It made me work harder. It made me enjoy being me and it's something I don't remember feeling before in my whole life.
Safe travels, Starman. Thank you.
Shit man i hope i make it to Bowies age before i go. My father didn't make it out of his 40's. Live your lives to the fullest, anons. Go outside and stop fucking hating everything/everyone. You never know what it's your time.
And these children that you spit on
As they try to change their worlds
Are immune to your consultations
They're quite aware of what they're going through
One of my favorite covers of Space Oddity
It's sad that all those musicians and big people in our lives leave like that. There aren't musicians like him anymore. Lemmy now Bowie. It's getting worse every year... Fuck, man...Rest in Piece David. Hope you're well, wherever you are...
Bowie was never not good
I came here because I couldn't sleep.
NOT FOR THIS BULLSHIT!
Not knowing him by name is understandable, but how do you go through life not knowing about motorhead?
>motorhead fans overlap with bowie fans
Why on earth would this be fishy to you? Most people who are older than 12 don't restrict themselves to a certain subgenre. Motorhead and Bowie were both big influences on the development of my musical tastes, and I think most rock fans would feel the same way.
>/mu/ has gone mad with the power of meme magic
I started to notice that we talking about lenny more than David Bowie.
>>yfw Bowie isn't dead but instead digitized himself to help us defend against soul-stealing demons
I mean guys, So what? One dude don't know your type of music.
Hell, I bet You can't name half of the star wars music without googling it.
He isn't dead. He just went back home to Mars.
I never know how to react when celebs I like die. I'm not sad because in the end, I didn't know them personally and for me it would feel mawkish to be upset about the death of someone I never met. And I don't really know what to say about it. I guess I regret that he died, for what thats worth.
Fuck you, 2016. This is how we're starting? Fuck you.
The only "celebrity" I've been close to being really sad about was Terry Pratchett. But that was only because his books are the reason I really learned English, which is huge, and because he died on my birthday, which was already shaping up to be a shitty day before I heard the news.
If you can't feel anything over a celebrity death then it had never made an impact in any part of your life. I was bawing silently when Robin Williams died. I grew up on his movies. I remember watching Hook at the theaters with my dad.
Anyone /v/ remember this little gem from the Rock Band series?
There's nothing wrong with feeling nothing about someone you don't even know on a personal level dying. The reason why some people get worked up over celebrity/artist deaths are because they are connected to the individual through their work and how that work has touched their lives, so they feel more emotional attachment to them and their death thus has a deeper impact upon them.
You can sympathize with the death but that doesn't make you a bad person for not really "feeling" anything from it.
I guess that makes sense. To be honest I can't think of any celebrities I feel that kind of connection to. I felt a bit sad when Williams died mainly because it was such a depressing way for someone to die.
I didn't know him either, but I'm fucking sad. That isn't even an obnoxiously sentimental feeling to have; it's natural. The guy touched a lot of lives through his work and it's only natural for someone to feel some amount of grief over his passing.
On that note why would you regret his death? It's not like you killed him. Regret only sounds even more personal.

It's too late. He can no longer be stopped.
A swansong of an album. He must have known it was close.
>You can hear him dying in his voice
He'll be fine
He's gonna make it through.
>David Bowie died
>we havent had an actual good pop artist emerge in nearly 10 years
I don't know if I've ever cried over a celebrity death but I did a little now.
I'd be sorry to see him go. School of Rock was legit fun when I saw it as a kid and I liked Pick of Destiny.
Also the rock opera episode of Clone High was 10/10 so he gets a pass for mere association with it.
I have a confession to make.
I only became a David Bowie fan because of /co/ stuff. Specifically this Young Liars issue, one of the only two I read, because of the "Spiders from Mars."
Afterwards, I went on a binge and have loved his music ever since.
So thanks, i guess.
Really? The biggest expirimental/glam/prog fans I ever knew were my Fillipina friend and her dad. I'd figured he was really popular over there.
Hell, I thought the whole of Asia held him in some high esteem.
The Philippines are basically the Mexico of Asia. They are really conservative,corrupt and overrun with muslims. no big shock not many Bowie fans in that shit hole. We love him in Japan.
Why did the Sovereign go from David Bowie to a shapeshifter who wanted to be Bowie? It doesn't make sense for his henchmen to be spoofs of Iggy Pop, Klaus Nomi, and Brian Eno if he isn't Bowie.
I listened to Ziggy Stardust when I was first falling in love with music and its potential to move the human spirit.
There's something magnetic and strange about his music. RIP in peace, magic man.
Speed metal, thrash metal and early black metal.
Motorhead influenced all that shit. They're literally one of the pillars of the genre. They did much more than Priest in terms of influence (Priest still kick ass though).
Are you actually trolling and lying, in a remembrance thread no less, in order to ignite a shitposting raid? Using Bowie's memory for your trolling purposes, at a time like this? The tumblr David Bowie tag is full of images of him with lyrics quotes or "RIP, I have no words, what a legend, thank you for everything, his music had such an influence on my childhood/youth" type posts.
Have some fucking respect. For shame.
>I-It's not like they are all that common or anything they are super conservative!
The fact they would even have them makes it a degenerate thing. Let alone it took them until two years ago to finally ban CP, I refuse to believe any country that allowed CP to be legal to be a "conservative" country.
Maybe you shouldn't have such a hard dick for a degenerate country that enjoys making animated videos of girls getting raped by monsters.
I just heard about it on /a/. Christ.
I live here you fuckwit. If you honestly believe people calmly accept that shit and don't in fact regard it and anyone who buys that sort of shit as hopeless degenerates then you're truly naive. Japan politics and social life is beyond fucking conservative. The fucking culture lives off of conservatism.
Why are we even talking about this anyway, this is a David Bowie thread.
>using the word degenerate
Yeah, I bet, they are so super conservative but yet they still have that god awful market they can still make money off of. Clearly is is a self-sustaining business or all of those things would have gone out of business, faded away, and not exist anymore.
You are dying the basic fact that japan literally creates the most insane fetishes alive, and does a fuck load of degenerate shit, so you can keep those weeb cherry blossom tinted glasses.
Gee with sex shops, strip clubs, and fags parading down the street in BDSM gear fucking each other with dildos and other god awful sexual acts to prove they are "normal" yeah I'd say we are a degenerate country.
Nice comback bro, you really nailed it.
Not that anon, but you should've seen me when Iwata died. I was crying for days. Never knew the guy personally but I grew with the games he made or helped made. He was a joyful person and he tried so hard for the thing he loved, gaming and gamers
Now, David Bowie died from cancer. Imagine in how much pain he was for weeks, months and/or years. He managed to record a new album, made a new videoclip and died peacefully, hiding from his fans that he had cancer. He loved his fans, he had a passion for music and wanted to go out with something new to remember him by. Basically, it's sad when you see people that cared so much about their fans and what they do. I wasn't such a huge fan of him. But I know many of his songs, watched Labyrinth many times when I was a kid and knew the songs by heart and I knew what he did for music and how he changed it and I feel awful when I see so passionate people die.
Yes. A man has died and the implies drama. You catch on quick.
You are acting like that shit is mainstream and what the majority of people here like and not the societal fringe shit that it actually is.
Why is when other countries create weird porn it's accepted as an abnormality and not what everybody is into, but the second something weird comes from Japan everyone wants to claim that it's normal here. It's not normal just like how it's not normal anywhere else.
I've been storing power in this skull for months.
There's coping, and then there's doing.
Because you people became famous for being weird. All the shit you guys do that is mainstream is weird, and we all see it.
Even your anime is weird half the time. The only thing you guys are known for besides your pop music, anime, and tentacle porn is the countries advanced knowledge in tech. And no one gives a shit about your advanced tech because they take the marvels of smartphones for granted anyways.
I get nothing but wrong numbers through this thing anyway.
I thought you were just making shit up
>mfw its ture
Bowie was someone i always immensely respected and appreciated. Compared to today's pop music, he was someone who had true musical talent and genuinely cared about music as an art-form. He was an entertainer and always wanted to make people smile. I can't say I'm a huge fan, I really only ever listened to Under Pressure but I always knew he was a great man. I hope he knew how much he meant to people, it's rare to have someone so musically talented that's also a good human being.
They're probably much older than you or just won't go public. The most mainstream stars get the most attendance in concerts when they drop by. I don't think he ever came here. Crosby Stills and Nash were here last year and got an audience of dozens not hundreds.
>the only David Bowie references in Jojo is the (quickly dumped) first face of the Part 4 villain and a Stand that's stupid even by the standards of the franchise
Man, why does Araki have to be like that?
funny thing was she looked it up and found nothing but swore she was right.
if tumblr starts crying for bowie she will most likely change her tune, just like how she hated star wars until episode 7 came out
I can not even argue with her with out it ending with her saying "you can go" which is her way of saying fuck off I do not care I am right no matter what.
but to lighten the mood, its funny how I started watching Korra, and Steven universe but dropped both shows later on, she picked them up after 2 specific parts, she started watching Korra after the series finale, she said it was because "now she can binge watch it" and SU after Garnet was revealed to be a fusion of 2 females and the obvious lesbian pairing.
I told her to watch both shows and she said no they do not interest her. I also told her to watch bobs burger and gravity falls again said they looked dumb and of course watched them when the fandom grew.
Bowie was in the studio recently... like, four or five months ago? So there might be a chance he did a voice for SU now that I think of it. We were told not to bother him. I thought it was because he was a celebrity and they didn't want the studio to look bad. But maybe it was because he was ill and didn't want too many people to know. Well, we'll just have to see.
the last single he ever released was about his own demise and nobody knew because it was kept secret
lemmy passed away in front of a video poker machine while drinking, staring death directly in the face the entire time and not letting death as a concept usurp his day in the slightest
these two men are the most badass motherfuckers that have ever lived, and will ever live.
and may God's love be with you
Peace on Earth. Can it be. Years from now. Perhaps we'll see.
>we havent had an actual good pop artist emerge in nearly 10 years
Because the industry is so crap that they never get an opportunity. Let's face it, the days when you could make good songs AND become a millionaire are over; now it's one or the other.
Shit, the founder of Cracker already said that there are only superstars and people with economic problems, no middle ground.
All the greats I have ever cared about are dead and gone now.
Mercury, Jackson, Bowie, Cobain, Hendrix, Lennon, and Morrison. I guess I kind of care about Grohl and Reznor, but not to the same degree.
Looking at the music video for Lazarus, the guy doesn't even look sickly.
I'm kind of hoping I'll wake up tomorrow and it'll all have been a lie.
I don't normally get upset at celebrity deaths, but Bowie is hitting me pretty hard.
She hated Korra being a dyke, iirc.
I just remember her coming into my room because she was frustrated and wanted to vent at somebody.
I later sent her a pic of Korra kissing that chick, and she got mad.
