based as fuck
>mfw trying to watch the music video again
This is really a bad day for me. Fuck this all. It seems like I run out luck already.
I'LL BE FINE.
i'm not as sad as i would have expected. i just feel kind of empty. cant even concentrate on music right now. don't know what else to say other than rest in peace david bowie, your music has truly enriched my life over the years. guess i'll finally listen to black star tomorrow
I've never been on this board before but this is kinda how I feel.
I think this is why. Listened to a bunch of his music and cried like a little bitch. Watched the OP's video and did some more. Going to have to get the album.
that Lazurus music video

The goddamned madman
I'm still wondering if he planned to die right after the album came out. I'm sure he knew he was dying while making the album but I wonder if it was his intention to release the album and then immediately die for whatever reason. It seems like a hell of a fitting death for him, at least timing-wise.
p4k... this needs to be changeed
This album's release is just all the more haunting.
I don't know what to feel anymore.
He knew it was coming, and he made something amazing out of it.
This might be my 10 for the year.
I don't know how much I trust CNN with their news, but somebody on there said that he had more plans for this album, like guest appearances. I don't know thought if those guest appearances were meant to be HIM though.
Apparently there are quite a few songs that didn't make it onto the album including a longer version of Blackstar. Wonder if we'll ever get to hear them.
Probably my favorite song on the album and even harder hitting with this news.
now that fucks with my head
its all a ruse confirmed guys, right?
The astronaut in Blackstar is major Tom who died on an alien planet, after drifting in space because of that malfunction for who knows how long. His remains are worshipped, just like we do with the music he left us. It is implied that the astronaut ascends.
and I just know from personal experience that this happens and goes unreported but I did pull the frequency statistics out of my ass, kinda. If its given that my experience is a fair sampling then yeah its common.
