>thin white duke
Yeah, the film buff one is closest to think white duke, in between Young Americans and Station to Station. Technically that pic should be before Low, since low was after that time.
Also the bowie on the cover of low was also a still from the film.
It was showing after his death ,and my little sister (9) saw it with me and was depresed when she realized he is dead now. I cried
Nope. Almost everyone I know (23 here) recognize him best from Labyrinth.
Which is whatever. My gf is the same way, but she knew I was listening to his whole catalog and asked me to make her a playlist of the best stuff.
Damn, the only thing that I could say I know him for is Low so I guess I'm a hipster. Though I'm pretty sure the first time I became familiar with Bowie's music was when they used "Heroes" for the opening of NHL 99 on PC. I had no idea who Bowie was at the time but now whenever I hear that song, I remember that game.
“Hipster” is a term co-opted for use as a meaningless pejorative in order to vaguely call someone else’s authenticity into question and, by extension, claim authenticity for yourself.
It serves no conversational function and imparts no information, save for indicating the opinions and preferences of the speaker.
Meanwhile, a market myth has sprung up around the term, as well as a cultural bogeyman consisting of elusive white 20-somethings who wear certain clothes (but no one will agree on what), listen to certain music (no one can agree on this either), and act a certain way (you’ve probably sensed the pattern on your own).
You can’t define what “that kind of behavior or fashion or lifestyle” actually is, nor will you ever be able to. That’s because you don’t use “hipster” to describe an actual group of people, but to describe a fictional stereotype that is an outlet for literally anything that annoys you.
The twist, of course, is that if it weren’t for your own insecurities, nothing that a “hipster” could do or wear would ever affect you emotionally. But you are insecure about your own authenticity - “Do I wear what I wear because I want to? Do I listen to my music because I truly like it? I’m certainly not like those filthy hipsters!” - so you project those feelings.
Suffice it to say, no one self-identifies as a hipster; the term is always applied to an Other, to separate the authentic Us from the inauthentic, “ironic” Them.
