>it's day 2 of the post-bowie era
How are you all holding up?
Been awake nearly 24 hours, listened to Hours because I thought Blackstar would be too sad, Hours still made me sad. Still doesn't feel real, I think when I listen to Blackstar it will truly sink in.
Not really too sad even though it's still a little sad. I'm still more amazed that everything fell into place like it did and that Bowie died so spectacularly.
Him and a friend got into a fight when they were kids. The friend had a ring I think and punched Bowie in the eye, causing it to be permanently dilated.
Literally no one on /mu/ liked him before he died
Kill yourselves :^)
Considering the dude was brought up on a weekly basis minimum and consistently shows up in the top 10's or top 20's of people's favorite albums/artists in chart threads i'd say you're either very stupid or just not very observant.
So? Is it really surprising that a large amount of people who might not get on /mu/ will come here when a famous musician they may have liked dies? That's like Mark Hamill dying and when you see a bunch of threads about him on /tv/ saying 'Literally nobody on /tv/ talked about Mark Hamill before today on here because he hasn't done shit since Star Wars".
David Bowie is one of the biggest pop stars of the 70s and 80s and regularly has his songs appear in movies, tv, and games. People literally have been listening to him for years. It's not like Metallica where most people probably haven't heard one of their songs in 5-10 years.
He was literally the first post always on "musician deaths you can't handle" threads, Low is considered atleast sub-/mu/core and you see Bowie frequently on chart threads. Fuck off neo-/mu/
I tried so hard to cry but I can't. Obviously his death is a huge loss to us all but I can't help but smile when I think about the expertly-crafted goodbye that he left us with. Instead of seeing it as him dying, I'm seeing it as him going away. It's bittersweet, but I guess I'm coping.
sad desu...I feel stupid for being sad for someone I don't know...I guess he has enriched my life and am sad he couldn't live another 20 years...and think of all te things he accomplished.
Feeling better, hopeful about the future. It was a total shock, but listening to his music has helped a lot. Bowie was always a kind and warm person by all accounts and his life should be celebrated, not mourned. :'3 <3
Other anons have said this, but I was feeling in a rut before this happened. Blackstar came out and I was really happy, but I was going to slide back into that rut eventually. With his death it really reminded me of my mortality and of how much time I'm wasting. I need to get back to doing creative things again.
My mom grew up in the era when Bowie was huge, and she's been ruminating a lot on her own mortality today. It makes me feel pretty sad and it's making me realize that she's not going to be around forever, either. She's only eight years younger than he was.
Bowie fans are the ones with no perception of others' feelings, considering how mad they are about dissenting opinions
how retarded do you have to be to take it as a personal insult that not everybody cares about the death of some old rock singer from the 70s
avoided social media today as much as I could and shut myself into my room and avoided everyone because it was easier than seeing reactions and news reports
watched some shitty youtubers, had a laugh but felt bad for laughing
I didn't think a musician's death could hit me this hard. I had tears welling up almost all day. My last class was cancelled today so I went home and slept for a while. Had a dream that my brother in law died and my sister and nephew and niece were alone and had no help. I woke up almost crying because I thought it had actually happened. I feel like the whole situation has really impacted me in ways I never knew it could.
