"FAUX AVANT GARDE???!? What the fuck did you just fucking say about me you Italian pedophile? I'll have you know I graduated top of my class in Marketing and spoke with Andy Warhol once and have over 300 confirmed S+ rank members on motherbase. I am trained in digestable experimentalism and I'm the top artist in the world. You are nothing to me but just another unbought critic. I'm fucking dead kiddo."
now i realize he was probably keeping himself alive just to finish Blackstar
Most terminally ill people do.
That's why they'll hang on until the holidays are over, or until a big birthday, and then croak.
Interestingly enough the death rate goes up with the change of seasons, too.
He had one thing to live for, probably for the last nine months or so while I have been spending my precious life shitposting and drinking.
But the album itself was probably finished in November at least. He was hanging on to his birthday and the album's release.
Yeah, it's amazing how much will people can find before death, and how close they can predict their deaths.
When my Grandad had cancer, we thought he was going to last a few months. One night, in the hospital, he gathered his two sons and his two grandsons around, and shook each of our hands individually. The few days beforehand he was barely lucid, but for the hour leading up to the handshake, he was like his old self.
That night he slipped into a coma. Two days later he died. He knew he was near the end.
My grandad was very ill and completely absent, due to alzheimers. My cousin was getting married and I could feel something was up because people were leaving the party, and I later found out that he was dying, but the sweet man held on for one more day so that he wouldn't taint the good memory of that wedding.
Grandpa, I miss you
>tfw now see what blackstar was all about
he did not go gentle into that good night ;___;
> a.. are you all here my family ?
> Yes we're here !
> My dear, my love, are you here ?
> Yes, yes, I'm here. I love you.
> My daughter, my sweet daughter, are you here too ?
> Yes ! Yes, please don't die daddy !
> My son ? Are you here my son ?
> Yes dad, I'm here. We're all here.
> I wanted to tell you...
> Yes ?
> WELL YOUR MOVIES BLOODY SUCKED !
If Kira is Bowie... why name his attacks after Queen ?
His stand should have been Queen Bitch, not Killer Queen. His last power should have been The Man Who Sold the World, not Another Bites the Dust.
"Britain is ready for a fascist leader... I think Britain could benefit from a fascist leader. After all, fascism is really nationalism... I believe very strongly in fascism, people have always responded with greater efficiency under a regimental leadership." He was also quoted as saying: "Adolf Hitler was one of the first rock stars" and "You've got to have an extreme right front come up and sweep everything off its feet and tidy everything up."
What did he mean by this?
You probably gave them too much ideas to them then they needed
Honestly, I can only guess. Since he was with his family, he might've said something like
>I love you all...so very much. I hope you know that. Doctor? I'm ready.
As his wife holds his hand he "drinks the Koolaid".
>Well now, I'm not gonna talk about Judy. In fact, we're not gonna talk about Judy at all, we're gonna keep her out of it.
>WHO YOU THINK THIS IS THERE?!

When you die of cancer, really, it means your organs all shut down and you die a horrible painful death where your heart goes out or you stop being able to breathe.
If I had to guess Bowie offed himself after having seen his album was doing well. It's a painful death.
Blackstar is about a dying star becoming a blackhole. But that's not a bad thing since whole galaxies orbit blackholes which makes the process of formation of stars and life itself possible to occur. Because of this, scientists theorize that if black holes didn't exist we wouldn't exist at all. Maybe that's what Bowie tried to tell us that even after his death his music will be very present in our lives.
“David’s death came as a complete surprise, as did nearly everything else about him. I feel a huge gap now. We knew each other for over 40 years…
Over the last few years - with him living in New York and me in London - our connection was by email. We signed off with invented names: some of his were mr showbiz, milton keynes, rhoda borrocks and the duke of ear.
I received an email from him seven days ago. It was as funny as always, and as surreal, looping through word games and allusions and all the usual stuff we did. It ended with this sentence:
‘Thank you for our good times, brian. they will never rot’. And it was signed ‘Dawn’.
I realise now he was saying goodbye.“-
this destroyed me
>‘Thank you for our good times, brian. they will never rot’.
"Aw shit nigga this is that real shit. Man, damn, aw man I'm fuckin dyin up in here nigga I'm fuckin for real dyin, that fuckin real shit kinda dyin man aw fuck.
