Who /actuallycried/ here?
I remember a thread a long time ago on here about musician deaths that would hurt, everyone said /my/ would probably lose it over this one.
I honestly can't think of anyone else that would bother me as bad. I feel like they're all already dead.
Maybe Prince but he's too big of an asshole.
if richard d james died it'd shake me a lot harder than bowie, but this is close to as bad as a musician's death can get
crying didn't even cross my mind though, probably because I'm too busy crying over other things that pertain directly to my life
>crying over someone you don't personally know
What kind of cuck shit is that? Feel sad, sure, but full out crying? Man the fuck up pussy, we're about to enter WW3 in the next decade, how do you expect to survive if you're going to be such a cry baby.
RDJ for me too, but agreed on the second part.
Also didn't cry
>have a cold
>suddenly start puking a few hr ago
>get the energy to come back on computer, find out Bowie died while I was projectile vomiting.
there is all kinds of cross-traffic going on right now because of the sticky
but yeah, I actually don't really understand how you could cry over someone you don't personally know dying
I wouldn't really say I lacked empathy either
I wasn't bawling or anything but I teared up a bit. Seems like a pretty human thing to do I really enjoyed his music and him as human being (from what I've seen of him). Also I'm not an edgy white teen sk there's that.
I think a solemn moment of remembrance, maybe a prayer for his loved ones if you're religious, is more appropriate than crying. Especially in this case, the man lived a long, fruitful and successful life. He impacted lives for the better, influenced countless artists, kept his integrity and went out on his own terms doing what he loved. There's nothing to mourn and all the reason in the world to celebrate his life.
I haven't cried in 5 years at least. Often I will feel like I should be crying, but the tears won't come. This morning I woke up to a text from my mother about Bowie, and my instant reaction was to put Space Oddity on. I lay there in the darkness with it blaring from my crappy phone speaker, and by the time it got to 'this is major Tom to ground control' tears were streaming down my face. I went downstairs to find my dad had put Ziggy Stardust on the record player just sitting dead eyed on the sofa and I gave him a hug.
This board is full of feminine men who go through daily mood swings. It's no wonder this home's death has caused an avalanche of cross-board shitposting. Abandon all hope for this board.
see, reactions like this are what I don't understand
why on earth would you be this sad that bowie, or any other celebrity who you aren't really involved with on a personal basis, died?
you still have their creative output, their contribution to society, which in many ways is as close as you ever were to them
that is still there
as far as you are concerned, bowie dying has changed nothing in the grand scheme of things
it's not like he was coming over for lunch tomorrow, was it?
I work night shift (I'm in the UK) and i had thirty mins left when my younger sister texted me the news. Checked twitter and found it was true. Managed to keep myself composed but the moment I got home we hugged and cried, I've been crying on and off since. I thought I was somewhat OK but then I put on BBC News and they were playing some old footage and I heard Heroes and I just started crying again. Still in shock.
you're right, I don't understand it, but I am not so lacking in empathy to think that something I don't understand is silly simply because I don't feel it myself
in this case I'd go as far as to say for many people like that it is simply a projection of unrelated emotional issues being projected onto something they deem worthy of emotional response
Who here didn't lose their shit over Bowie's death until listening to Blackstar after hearing the news?
It was my first time listening to it, and by god if that wasn't one of the most magical swan-song albums I've ever listened to.
do you always talk about shit you know nothing about? just curious. bowie obviously didn't influence your life, fine. you not feeling anything is not a barometer for how other people feel and grieve, moron.
I'm losing my fuckiing shit. I grew up with Bowie, my mother grew up with Bowie. I have fond memories of singing Starman to her as a toddler, it was probably the first song I learnt. Bowie's music brought me and my first love together. I'm sitting at work choking back tears.
Honestly, I've been thinking about this a lot lately, since I actually did tear up while listening to Lady Stardust and honestly think the same way on a rational level.
I haven't reached a proper conclusion as to why I feel this way, when it is clearly idiotic and irrational.
no, for obvious reasons
calm down friend
and to be clear - I've been listening to bowie since I was about 13
you becoming catatonic because he died does not indicate that you are somehow a more genuine fan of his music
It's called EMPATHY! His music is an imprint, a familiarity with our own experience, our thoughts, fears, feelings, desperations. We saw ourselves in him, and he showed us all that in a beautiful way. I think that counts for something, apart from the practical genius of his work
I mourn for a good man and I mourn for myself. This isn't about him. It's about me. Mourning is selfish. He knew what he was doing the whole time. I'm just bitter and sad that he's gone.
I want to hug you as well, make you feel better. I want to get deep inside you anon and feel your warm bubble bum and give you a scratch to an itch you can't reach. I want to kiss your neck.
Can't understand why anyone would be overly upset about this.
I mean, I don't expect anyone to be happy or positive about the death of anyone barring terrorist scum/criminals but still......
It's not like he was still churning out world class albums every few years or anything. He was done as a musician.
You didn't know him personally, so how does it affect your life in any way? I doubt you woke up yesterday thinking about David Bowie and how he was getting on with his family etc. In fact, I doubt you EVER ONCE IN YOUR ENTIRE LIFE took a second to think about this man in a non-music context.
This is just the over-emotional shrieking grief of twats.
You have literally no empathy. You are a soulless husk, a walking corpse. You are emotionally retarded. When I heard Bowie died, I immediately curled up into a ball and lay in the corner of my room weeping into a sweater that I knitted of his face. I remained there for an hour.
My dad died when I was 17, my grandmother died when I was 14 and my grandfather died when I was 7. I didn't cry then, so why the fuck would I cry when some homo who was only relevant in the 80s dies?
Some of you really need to man the fuck up. How are you going to cope when something truly tragic happens in your lives?
>Who /actuallycried/ here?
My mum was actually crying when she told me he died, he was a big part of her and dads life, used to listen to his music when they got their first place together, saw him live and bowie was played at my dads funeral too, I was lucky enough to see Bowie live in 1996.
I guess the whole meaning behind Blackstar is plain to see now, he's the Black star, he's there but you can't see him, again the only album without bowie on the front, again he's there but you can see him, same as the symbols, his name is there but you can't see it.
Explains the skeleton Mr Tom/Bowie, even the lyrics in Lazarus "I have scars that can't be seen" etc, even the title Lazarus is a poignant one.
I'm happy he got to see his album released and to have seen/heard the positive reviews.
RIP Mr Bowie ;_;
I do have empathy though. I feel sorry for the family that he leaves behind.
Don't give a fuck personally though that the man is dead. People die every day. Get over it.
Also, I hope that post is satire.
when I heard bowie died I immediately fell into a series of intermittent comas and convulsions within the passing of which I had several near death visions of bowie our lord and saviour beckoning me to the gates of heaven
when I awoke I realised I had soaked myself in my own tears, I still haven't found the strength to move my right arm
you disgust me, you probably have a disorder
I saw it pop up on FB in real time and although I knew it was the official page, I thought it was a hoax like everyone else. But then I saw Duncan's tweet there was no denying. I cried man, let it out.
After the high of hearing Blackstar in full, over and over for days, this. And I thought the Lazarus clip was for the album launch, watch it now...
People are sad because the artist has died, not a person, it isn't like a friend dying, it's someone who made them feel emotion without knowing them, being autistic you wouldn't understand
My initial reaction was surprise and sadness, but crying? Jesus fucking Christ, get a grip..
That's seriously pathetic. Unless you literally were in love with the man and had been to every live performance of his in your lifetime, had met him personally etc. etc. you need to grow the fuck up.
i cried and still am crying. nobody or nothing has helped me through more self identity issues than bowies music. everyone thats ever mattered to me in my life i have at least 1 memory of enjoying bowie's music with them. this hurts worse than any family death ever has.
There is nothing that he had which he didn't work for. Some people have their life handed on a platter, some just cruise it, but Bowie lived it.
you're the one who has empathy issues if you can't understand why so many people wouldn't be that bothered that he was dead
empathy is about understanding the emotions of others, and as you have just stated you "can't imagine" any other viewpoint than your own
People were wondering what the album really meant, what did it all mean, I guess we all know now, the visuals, buttons over the eyes, solitary candles, bejewled/worshiped Toms skull etc etc.. damn.
Even the title Lazarus it apt.
I wouldn't be surprised that at his service there will be a solitary candle, at the center of it all.
I didn't cry, but why do you care if other people did? Everyone has a different emotional range and it doesn't make you an alpha male to have not felt upset over something someone else did
>man who literally was a trany and dressed up as a woman and sung about liking boys and girls
>helped you with your identity issues
You fucking wot m8? He himself had MAJOR identity issues. How the fuck could he possibly help you solve yours!?
For such a private man, it was kind of him to share his death with us. He could have easily just stepped back into the shadows again, and I appreciate that he didn't because it shows that he loves and respects his fans, and he shared his last passage with us. :'3 </3
Little bit easier to say those sorts of edgy things when you're a multi-millionaire global superstar with millions of adoring fans...
In fact, if I were more cynical, I'd say he deliberately said/sung these things to increase his popularity. As a marketing technique ala Miley Circus.
>For such a private man
Yeah, Like Lemmy both artists didn't make a big song and dance about they had cancer and kept it a private affair until people needed to know.
I lost my own dad to cancer, he too was a bowie fan and have seen how much it takes away from you energy wise etc, it must not have been an easy album for Bowie to make. For him to depart so soon after Blackstars release, kinda gives me the impression it was the only thing that kept him going, he saw it release and departed.
There will be A LOT of hidden meaning etc in Blackstar, probably almost cryptic in places
>sings about kissing boys
>muh cryptic, layered and meaningful writing 2deep4us
it probably meant absolutely nothing, he was just fucking about with bandages because he knew edgy hipsters would lap it up and invent their own interpretations
he's probably going to be laughing in his grave at all the suckers buying into it
Called my girlfriend up, we both cried.
May we all be blessed by the Starman, and do the best in whatever it is we seek.
Only last night I was talking on here with other Bowie fans, enthusiastic for what treats he had planned for his 70th birthday. I could read the mortality message of Blackstar, but I thought it was Bowie just waxing lyrical on life. Little did we know, vale Bowie! ;_;7
From Tony Visconti:
>He always did what he wanted to do. And he wanted to do it his way and he wanted to do it the best way. His death was no different from his life - a work of Art. He made Blackstar for us, his parting gift. I knew for a year this was the way it would be. I wasn't, however, prepared for it. He was an extraordinary man, full of love and life. He will always be with us. For now, it is appropriate to cry.
This. I put Ziggy on and was quite teary eyed during Starman but by the time Suffragette City came on I realised I should be celebrating his life and music not mourning his death
His death has impacted me more than any other death, and initially I just felt unbelievably sick, almost as if I had been punched in the stomach, but just minutes ago I broke down and cried harder than I've cried in years. He and his music saved my life when I was at my lowest, and just the thought of a world without him is bleak.
The respect I have for him and all he has done with his life is astronomical. Good bye Bowie.
I was in the studio with my friends working on our first release when we found out. We all took a moment to gather ourselves and then listened to a bunch of bowie and some of us cried a bit. If anything it was even more inspiration to release something good because he's absolutely an influence.
Hold me /mu/, I'm still in denial.
Today is my birthday and now every year I'll be reminded of the death of one of my favorite artist.
I can't feel joy in any way right now, this is a fucking shitty ass day.
It's not that we don't understand the people who aren't plussed about his death. Sure, maybe you didn't grow up with his music. That's fine.
But for those same people to tell others they shouldn't be crying and that "people die every day, get over it" prove that they haven't made any emotional attachments in their whole life if it's so evidently foreign a concept for them, and they have no right to comment on the matter.
>I remember a thread a long time ago on here about musician deaths that would hurt, everyone said /my/ would probably lose it over this one.
My God I remember that thread. I remember replying Bowie was immortal and would outlive us all. I fucking can't, Jesus Christ.
Anyone who cries over someone they haven't met in the flesh before is a fucking pussy and a wimp. My whole entire family died when I was some arbitrary young age and I didn't cry because my calves are impressive and my dick is stellar. Me, some random dude on the internet whose identity is shielded by the power of anonymity, is unimpressed that you are crying over someone who might have had a huge impact on your life with all the art they made throughout theirs. Grief is overrated, sorrow is overrated -- I mostly live my whole life through a steady sway of indifference and monotony because I fear if I start opening up myself to others, I will surely crumble beneath the weight of my hidden neurosis. I'm going to voice my shuttered plea for help to the world and market it like some post-ironic shit-talking through this thread. I hate myself. I hate myself. I hate myself. I hate myself. I hate myself. I hate myself. I hate myself so much. I hate myself so very much. I am sorry. I am so sorry.
Yo. I didn't think I was going to. I must have kinda been in shock when I heard.
Then I listened to "Life on Mars" and "Where Are We Now" and had a pretty good cry.
I intend to be spinning Bowie all day at work tomorrow. It might not be a good idea. Fuck it, I don't care if anyone sees me cry over Bowie.
I was shocked and struggled with disbelief.
Then I cried in selfishness because I never wanted him to leave.
Now I am numb, but tears keep streaming down my face every now and then when suddenly I can't breathe.
Vodka is helping me while I listen to his music.
well i'm pretty sure he didn't want to go out quietly like a bitch. he had to make something crazy as fuck out of his death and he did just that. not many artists are willing to go that far.
I honestly never thought that a musician or celebrity's death would end up bringing me to full on tears but this sure did. Hearing the news at first was almost unbelievable and it took me about 15 minutes to finally come to terms with it and then it hit me like a train.
The ten year musical hiatus, you at least knew he was there and waiting to come back any moment but now he's gone. Still find a tear in my eye when I try to listen and although I should be happy he lived a long fruitful life with a stellar discography that deeply influenced myself and countless others, it's hard picturing the world without him as I've never known a world without him until now.
Angels would be honored to sing beside you. Rest in peace, David.
Fuck. For me too.
Got high and laid to Station to Station with a beautiful girl.
Went out and moved to China while listening to Lodger in the airplane.
Partied with Lets Dance and cried with Low.
When I won the college I was listening to Scary Monsters... Jesus... Memories.
One of the first songs I heard on the radio as a little kid 'This is what music is? Why doesn't everyone listen to music all the time?'
The day this man dies is the day music dies, it'll also be the last day my heart continues to beat.
> read the news
> literally feel my heart sinking as if a family member had died
> look for a Bowie song to play
> "Ah, Space Oddity is a good choice for sure"
> "And the stars look so much different today!"
> tears welling up "Yes, yes, they do..."
Fuck this day
I didn't, but my local radio station finished a 3-hour Bowie tribute an hour ago, and the DJ sounded completely disraught, since he knew Bowie for most of his career, he was basically mourning the loss of a close friend in between songs.
yeah i think because bowie was a mindset of living that went beyond the music he made
he did things for the personal fuck of it and also with deliberate style - i never understood most of it but i appreciated the effort
Bowie's passing is something else. While I felt bad about Lemmy dying, and others, you knew what you were going to get with those guys and you heard it already.
With Bowie you knew there was still many ideas and secrets that only he could share. With him passes new sounds of music, which is only highlighted by Blackstar and Nothing Has Changed. Truly a light is gone from the world. :(
Half the people in this thread probably don't even browse /mu/ regularly.
He made a really good point, actually. If anything you should be celebrating Bowie's life. Sadness is understandable, can't say I feel very sad myself but I get it. Even so. He gave us so much and the thing to do would be to appreciate what he did give, rather than mourning what he could have.
Expressing emotion has no merit in itself. It is when it is done beautifully that it is powerful. I doubt the image of you bawling into a wankrag because Bowie kicked the bucket was a nice sight to see.
quote from an interview with the director of the Lazarus play, who worked closely with Bowie
>He really fought like a lion. He did NOT want to die... I had immense respect for him, but with tears in our eyes
They aren't interested in art then.
You can go to a gallery and start crying over a painting you've never seen without any personal attachment to it.
Bowie dying is the end of one of an increasingly small pool of true originals and pioneers. Few musicians do what he does, and if they do they don't do it nearly as well.
He was the soundtrack to a lot of times in a lot of peoples lives and of you can't understand why that upsets some people there's something wrong.
Of course we'll be happy and celebrate his live in time, thats normal, but for now give us our moment to grieve. It's not asking much.
Yeah, I don't get it either and I've been a big fan for years. I've seen people on this board pretty much worship him like a god, so it isn't that hard to believe his death would make a big impact on some people.
lmao, if someone expressing simple confusion towards a situation triggers you this hard then maybe you should go back to your crocodile tear shedding tumblr hugbox.
I have to be honest, I thought I would be sadder than this. I just think the release of Blackstar, I loved the album, the lyrics, everything. It's a great sign off to the legend. Shame he won't live more, he had more in him, but it doesn't feel empty with Blackstar. Thank you Bowie.
This. We cry because we have unexpectedly lost. We cry because, as selfish as it may be, we don't want to live in a world without that person. We cry because we know the person lost will never know or see the outpouring of love and appreciation.
Bowie knew this was coming, and gave his fans a message. "I know its coming, I don't want it to, but it is, so here's my perspective, because I know my loss will tear you apart as much as my knowledge of whats coming is tearing me apart. But I'm still ok, and I want you to know it. Here is my parting gift to you"
Once all the pieces of Leviathan fell into their obvious place with his passing, all I could do was smile. It seems almost wrong to cry. I don't recall an artist ever doing something like this as a final piece, and while other may try, he is the one that did it. I can only smile at his wisdom and forethought. Legend. Thank you indeed Bowie.
Still pretty upset by it, but I'm glad he took time time to sign off with Blackstar and the video clips. I've enjoyed the album a lot over the weekend and then this news. I'll remember this time as a bittersweet reminder that Bowie made my life better.
I cried. But I'm not sure it was for Bowie but for myself. I just got hit with a wall of feelings.
After listening to blackstar all week and giving it a second spin after his death it all just became such a beautiful show.
I'm not sad that he's dead -- that has to be the best way to go out as a musician. One final show, surrounded by your family, on your own terms.
Someone edit this image for bowie.
>Look up here I'm in heaven
Haven't cried yet but I teared up big time listening to Win and I almost cried at the end of Under Pressure when it hit me that both singers are dead now. Y'know the part.
>'cuz love's such an old fashioned word
>and love dares you
>to care for
>on the edge of the night
idk. It's not about bowie, really.
I've been to so many funerals and I rarely cry at them. Instead it all seems to hit me later while I'm doing random shit.
A good person I knew and admired died a few years ago and I didn't cry when I found out. But like a week later I was doing the fucking dishes and just lost it. On the floor level sobbing.
A month ago someone else I knew killed himself and I didn't cry when I found out. Instead, it's all hitting me now. The album, and music in general, is a kind of medium that allows me to release pent up emotional energy.
I didn't even know I needed to cry until this morning listening to blackstar. It's not about Bowie's death. This whole thing was just a catalyst for me to release my emotions and feelings regarding other shit in my life.
Fucked up? Maybe. Either way music sure as fuck helps.
The death of a cultural icon represents a death of part of yourself. Part of your world has gone forever and this reminds you of your own mortality.
Unless you're an autist like you clearly are.
not as huge a fan as some of yall.
but i very much appreciate true art and true artists, and bowie was absolutely a true artist.
huge loss for pretty much the entire world.
edgelords should fuck off back to le reddit xD
this is one of the biggest musician deaths that mattered to me - where it felt like "something changed"
Ornette Coleman, Lou Reed and Captain Beefheart were the only musician deaths I recognized that mattered as much as this one to me
>Who /actuallycried/ here?
I did. A couple times. Like a lot of people his music has spoke to me. Spent all weekend listening to the new album and his back catalog. Was not prepared for this morning. Love you guys.
I cried a little bit when I initially heard the news. Then I cried a few times while listening to Ziggy Stardust (Five Years and Rock N' Roll Suicide got me the hardest), then I listened to Blackstar and the second the album finished I realized this would be the last new Bowie song I'll ever hear and I cried like a bitch. It just gets me because for a few years when I was a teenager I would listen to Bowie constantly. I haven't listened to him in years but listening to Ziggy Stardust again reminded me of my teenage years and that along with his death really gave me some perspective on where I'm at in my life and where culture is now. It fucking sucks that we're going to be the last generation that knows who David Bowie is.
this one is such a shock though. Nobody knew he was sick. I guess he wanted it that way. He controlled everything so that Blackstar would be his last statement before death. While we were all hyping for it, he was probably wasting away in a hospital bed. We had no idea though, we just enjoyed the hype and the album. The man was a fucking genius.
>This is Ground Control to Major Tom,
> Your circuit's dead, there's something wrong,
>Can you hear me Major Tom?
Listening to this walking through campus and I started to cry, fortunately no one was around.
>as far as you are concerned, bowie dying has changed nothing in the grand scheme of things
Even if you feel nothing about the death itself, you've still lost all that he might have gone on to do. He'd just started producing again a year before he would have had the news about the cancer.
I didn't cry at first reading the news but then I listened to the final track from Blackstar and it hit me like a freight train.
Don't even normally cry at celebrities passing, but this really does feel like the end of an era.
I don't mean to sound edgy or anything, but once I was convinced that he had actually passed and started realizing all the stuff about Blackstar, I started smiling. I wasn't happy at all, but I was still smiling. Bowie made it so that we didn't see a sickly old man wasting away, he made a music video and an awesome album as if he was at his prime again. He wants Blackstar to be his last statement, and he wanted that to get the attention, not his death. This is such a genius move on his part, making his death a piece of art. I'm still smiling, even if I'm sad inside.
I've been feeling pretty bummed but listening to this commodore64 cover of Ashes to Ashes cheered me up. Ashes to Ashes is my favourite song of all time, not just Bowie. :) <3
as a 16 year old girl, when I woke up this morning and saw the news on Facebook, I cried and my boyfriend had to comfort me.
I discovered Bowie when I was 12 years old, just through browsing Youtube. I was hooked, for the longest while he was the only music I'd listen to. It changed my world, as it was like nothing I'd ever heard before, so different and beautiful.
Sadly I wasn't born sooner, but the 4 years that I've had thus far listening to his music are one of the greatest gifts life has given me.
Thank you David Bowie.
>Who /actuallycried/ here?
Me man, not right away but when I was watching the Blackstar video and when Bowie got to "something happened on the day he died" that when the waterworks kicked in.
My parents are/were both fans of Bowie when they first met and settled down to marry and saw him perform live before I was born.
I myself was lucky enough to see Bowie perform live in 1996
Bowie was played at my dads funeral
I cried when Bowie died and i'm not ashamed of it.
I love Bowie but to be honest, I really didn't care when I found out he died. When my mom passed away, that's when I kinda stopped caring about strangers dying, even if they were favorite musicians/actors/ect. I really don't see the point in shedding tears over someone who didn't even know you existed. That's just me, though.
I think that's the thing; emotions rarely follow a 'point'. If the man touched you in a way that his passing made you cry, then that's what happened. No shame in crying, and no shame in not.
I've mostly sat here for the past few hours bawling my eyes out
the man's been alive my whole life and influenced so many artists I love
I can't believe he's just
He really did it properly, an ending that will go down in music legend.
Self restraint and style, no fucking way was he going to tabloid this out for months in some nasty cancer grief festival.
>as a 16 year old girl
don't start bait with such obvious bait m8
The news itself didn't make me cry, I was just kinda shocked. It's when you start playing your favourite songs, and obviously Blackstar, that it gets you. Genuinely haven't cried in years, but I already have a few times today. It's sad but it's also the best way he could have gone. I hope Blackstar gets the acclaim it deserves.
It wouldnt be nearly as bad if Blackstar didnt get my hopes up for him so much just a few days back
>me being an 80s kid
>Ashes to Ashes is my favourite song, I still remember when it came out it redefined everything. I really enjoy Let's Dance it is a lot of fun and yet has a spooky feeling
>women my age
>I've loved him since Labyrinth
WGUC has no commercials luckily so I sleep with the radio playing every night and the DJs will pop in here and now nonchalantly stating the news and the compositions etc
I drifted in and out of sleep cycles intermittently hearing Bowie passed...
I was pleading with my subconscious it was fiction :(
Gone before his time
I didn't cry, but I have been deeply saddened. It's pretty hard to believe, it feels like he'll emerge in a week or a month and it will all have been some ruse. David Bowie doesn't seem like the kind of person who dies.
what's with all this paranoia lately? you don't even HAVE a girlfriend man, why would you be worried about his girlfriend cheating?
crying together with someone else is extremely beautiful and one of the highest forms of catharsis we, as humans, can reach.
I think both Lemmy and Bowie in such a small amount of time almost broke me.If someone else dies soon, I might stay in bed and drink for a week. These people are like fathers or grandfathers to me, in a sense of what they said and what they did. I feel like I should care more honestly.
My Mother told me an hour ago. I didn't cry but when I heard the news it went through me like a bolt. I feel like a huge hypocrite now because I always made fun of and told people who felt pain for a strangers death to get a grip. But now I am sad about it to be honest, not crying obviously but it really, really sucks and I feel a 'jolt' every time I remember it's real. I totally understand if somebody wants to call me a fag over it.
Bowie's death is a spiritual event. Don't you think? Lots of people seemed to have sensed something. It's like when such a famous, inspiring, spirit and force for good passes away the shock ripples throughout the world and we all know he's left our world before us.
If you think about it, Bowie's death has more significance than Christ's death, Muhammad's death, etc., simply because billions more people know about it instantly and can hear their entire life's work and message. When Christ died, maybe a few hundred people knew at most. The rest of the world went on like nothing had happened. Today is different, the whole world is feeling this one.
>Ornette Coleman, Lou Reed and Captain Beefheart were the only musician deaths I recognized that mattered as much as this one to me
completely agree. when lou died I wept like a fucking bitch.
if Bob Dylan dies I'll barf for sure.
can't even imagine what happens when Nick Cave dies..
why do you have to make me thing those thoughts?
saw him live, was a good show. wouldn't really be sad if he died to be honest.
