>>61697374 >Maybe in the 1990s And in the 2010s. Blackstar was mediocre. Get over it you pleb. And remove your trip immediately unless you want instant disregarded opinion by anyone who isn't a turbopleb.
>>61697345 >incredibly mediocre this is probably the most subjective, unproveable criticism that gets flung about here, and it's applied to literally any artist. like everything is mediocre and you'd better not let anybody go on without informing them of how non-special X artist is. what marvelous insight.
Why do plebs constantly chalk up disliking something or having a negative opinion on something that has mass appeal to "being contrarian"?
>"Oh, you don't like this thing that the majority of people like? You're just being contrarian!"
This isn't even close to being a good argument. People have different opinions on things, especially things like movies. Claiming that 4chan just tries to be "contrarian" is a shitty argument, because then people could just as easily argue that you're just trying to agree with the masses.
Oh you LIKE Bowie? Well you just like him because everyone else likes him. See? That's a stupid, pointless shitty argument.
I enjoy 4chan because people offer different points of views on movies and television that you're not going to see expressed on other websites where people are afraid for whatever dumb reason to go against the masses and form negative opinions on popular things.
If you want a hivemind, literally go to reddit. You will love it and never have to make a shitty thread like this again.
>>61697771 at any level of subjectivity there is still no use in purely saying whether something is good or bad. no matter how marginally true or objective such a statement might be, without references or comparisons (to frame the opinion), it's just masturbatory. if one doesn't want to get into a real discussion about the merits of a piece of music, the way to express opinion is to say "i dont like it."
>>61697799 you can have your opinion and not like Bowie. But to call someone who has consistently been adored and respected by their entire industry for over 40 years "mediocre" is obviously contrarian. And if you're not trolling you may just be autistic to not understand this
>>61698340 >But to call someone who has consistently been adored and respected by their entire industry for over 40 years "mediocre" is obviously contrarian. No, it's called having your own opinion. You know that music is subjective, right?
>>61697788 The very reason Bowie was held in such high esteem by so many people...we don't want you to like him you've made your mind up and are not prepared to change it. I'm sorry you won't have the pleasure from his the music that i did, but I accept that even idiots are entitled to there own opinions.
>>61697799 i know that feel i mean i won't say his music sucked but i never liked him, i always thought he was a special snowflake attention whore, especially for picking up that giant starving somalian like she was some kind of accessory. Like that poster of that black chick with the huge afro in the 70's, the one all the black guys had, but some skinny white attention whore had to take it a step further, perhaps to keep himself looking like he's so fucking avant garde.
Everything about him represents what i disliked about the 80's, that creepy, showy, angular aesthetic, the faux femininity, and it's doubly irritating to see all these millennials start fellating the whole thing because he happened to die
i swear if the 80's makes a come back i'm going to flip my shit
>>61698621 It felt like a rushed Marvel flick and none of the characters are as memorable as the ones from the OT Not really terrible but I don't believe people will still be talking about it in a decade or two from now
>>61698648 Apologies if my post appeared to be passive/aggressive it was my intention to be condescending and to appear culturally superior. Given your insight into my death can you at least tell me how i get aids please tell me its drug fueled bum sex and not some shitty boring rare disease blood transfusion. If bum sex is not available I will settle for infection via shared needles preferably good quality heroin. RSVP
>>61699033 Bowie never had mass appeal. Sure he was pretty popular, but he never had a US number one record until black star. He was always consistently relevant and critically acclaimed though. You arguing that he sucked is like saying the Godfather sucked. You're entitled to that opinion, but it's a retarded opinion to hold
>>61698931 I can't argue with your logic and as much as I may think my comment was frivolous in all honesty it wasn't. I hate public grief over celebrities, but David Bowie had such an impact on my life and many many of my peers many of whom have been in contact with each other for the first time in decades to express how sad his death was. If it wasn't for Bowie I could pretty much guarantee I wouldn't be on mu/ and would probably have a passing interest rather than a lifelong passion for music.And for the next few days i will defend the legacy of Bowie out of respect for the contribution he made to me being me x
>>61698591 I thought it was just me who had their entire 80's ruined because of angular aesthetics and faux femininity not to mention the current scourge of fellating millennials just because he died. the sooner these pretentious self righteous pricks are eradicated the better. I do like the sound of special snowflake attention whores though do you have contact details you could pass on?
>>61697799 >I enjoy 4chan because people offer different points of view Good joke. 4chan is by and large a hivemind. The biggest lie 4chan ever told is when we deluded ourself to thing we were anything different than reddit or tumblr in a different format.
Sure Bowie was much more theatrical, but Motorhead didn't need or want to be. Their shows were like their music - and perfectly suited for it - stripped down and simple and to the point. Remember Motorhead was coming out of a scene all about not doing bloated indulgent arena rock shit.
I never saw Bowie live, I'm sure he was great too, just in a very different way
