At 1.25.50 in this video, David Bowie utters the words "meme school". This is in 2002. This may well be one of the most advanced human beings who has ever lived https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnnY_Z9OtC0

meme (n.) Look up meme at Dictionary.com
1976, introduced by evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins in "The Selfish Gene," coined by him from Greek sources, such as mimeisthai "to imitate" (see mime), and intended to echo gene.

It has no relevance to anything else they were talking about apart from sounding a bit like "mime". He just sneaks it into the dialogue and nobody even reacts to it.

WHAT THE FUCK

He is just pronouncing 'mime' 'meem'

I was listening to the NPR Fresh Air episode the day after he died, which was a replay of an old interview, and David tells Terry Gross on the subject of his miming past that he thinks Americans pronounce MIME as MEME, which I've never heard and thought was odd.

He was simply intentionally mispronouncing mime to be funny, as the context was him talking about mime school.
>>
>>61882063
The word already existed at that time it just hadn't become a popular meme yet

>>61882063

also mime is pronounced "meme" in some languages.

I knew about memes back in the early 90s.

>>61882137
True... and 'meme' is a French word that we simply didn't adopt into English vocabulary until the 2000s.
>>
>>61879713
Are you kidding? His album went #1 in like seven countries. He had songs in the charts that hadn't been there since the 70's. It was probably the best thing to happen to his career.

Meme is a word invented by Richard Dawkins in his book "The Selfish Gene".

It is a French word but I think the pronunciation is different and the meaning isn't anything close to the English definition.

I worked for a small ISP in 2001. It went bust in '03. Lots of small ISPs who did great in the 90s folded in the early 2000s a s telcoms ate their lunch.

And your fucking daft if you think the internet was some new concept in 1999. AOL was one of the biggest companies in the world at that point

Have you guys seen the comebacks he used to give to other people on the internet? It's beautiful. Here's a free sample(sorry about the size)
''YOU WANNA PLAY WITH DADDY, ASSHOLE!?''
>>
>>61884539
That's so 2016.
>>
>>61884445

Of course it wasn't some new concept. But Bowie believed the internet would be even bigger than the general public ever imagined, the interviewer doesn't think it would become big and thought it was "just a tool."

Here's an excerpt:

"During a Newsnight interview in December 1999, Bowie found himself evangelising the impact of the internet to a mostly disbelieving Jeremy Paxman. “We’re on the cusp of something exhilarating and terrifying,” he said. “The actual context and the state of content is going to be so different to anything we can envisage at the moment – the interplay between the user and the provider will be so in simpatico it’s going to crush our ideas of what mediums are all about.

“Artists like Duchamp were so prescient here – the idea that the piece of work is not finished until the audience comes to it and adds their own interpretation, and what the piece of art is about is the grey space in the middle. That grey space in the middle is what the 21st century is going to be all about.”

He was envisioning something we all take for granted now – that link between popstar, Twitter, Instagram, fanbase and culture; that frisson between the artist as an aloof creator and the artist as an active participant in their own community."

Hang on, is this actually him? This is from the forum Teenage Wildlife, I know he was called Sailor on Bowienet but I didn't know he was active on there too.
>>
>>61884654
That was nothing new either - WIRED magazine (and MONDO 2000 before that) was preaching that gospel every issue and had been available on every magazine stand in the country (well the US) for the previous 5 years

Paxman was just incredibly out of touch.


Also the idea of a meme as we know it today (an idea that rapidly moves through a population) was complete known by 99. Just read Snow Crash, which came out what? 12 years? prior
>>

I vaguely remember Sailor on TW always making similar outlandish comments; I doubt it's really him.

there was a short time in his life when he was having a lot of failure in the music biz and thought about quitting to go to mime school.

You guys are retarded, and clearly haven't heard many Bowie interviews. They even played one on NPR the day he died where he was talking about his work with Kemp's mime company, and he refers to it as "meim" and then "meem," sarcastically, to emphasize its European nature and lack of American appeal.

So just to clarify, you're retards.

An earlier analysis:

>The shrieking of nothing is killing me
>Just pictures of Jap girls in synthesis

Shitposting on a chinese comic site.

>And I ain't got no money and I ain't got no hair

NEET.

>But I'm hoping to kick but the planet is glowing

Didn't mean to post tonight but now it's morning.

>Time and again I tell myself
>I'll stay clean tonight
>But the little green wheels are following me
>Oh, no, not again

Little green wheels = 4-leaf clovers = 4chan.

>I'm stuck with a valuable friend
>"I'm happy. Hope you're happy, too."
>One flash of light
>But no smoking pistol

My only friends are faggots in the same boat as me, and all we do is get mad at each other over nothing.

It's like he was expecting a laugh after it, but then he realized that the general public were still behind on the whole memes and shitposting thing. I'm convinced Bowie actually was both a pioneer in internet memes and shitposting.

Wow, informative interview, he really predicted how the way internet would change music and everything. I'm impressed.

I was already a big fan but this thread is making me realize that I underestimated him. Bowie was not just a talented artist, extremely intelligent, cordial and funny in interviews, he left a legacy on the finance world with his bowie bonds and he was also a talented internet troll... Oh, and he could sing and dance wearing high heels.

Again, you'd have to know that that's what's going on. It could have just as easily been a typo. Also, isn't the point of revealing the trick supposed to be to make the trick as obvious as possible? Using words to explain it would make the trick much more obvious than reproducing the illusion with no explaination and expecting the reader to come to the conclusion that they should highlight and right click the text.
>>
>>61911204
There is another possibility here. He could have made that original post, just showing the words, as a small joke. The humor would come from the fact that the two spellings are visually identical.

But is anyone on /mu/ actually clever enough to do that?
