Now that the dust has settled, is there anyone who could actually play him in the inevitable biopic?
People have short memories. Bowie is the meme of the week now, and already people don't care as much as they did a couple of days ago.
Movies take a long time to make. No one is going to care enough to marathon a 2 hour fick by the time this thing gets released. It will bomb like that Jobs movie.
no have a bunch of actors all on-screen at once portraying just David Bowie. fucking Pixar got a best screenplay nomination for that shit.
Bowie fan here. That's one of his most pleb tier album. Fuck off reddit. Art Bowie beats "LEE WRUNHG GENERUSHUN DADROCK MEME" Bowie. Still play video games right?
I will slit your throat
>straw grasping fanboy
You would have to be mentally retarded to not get that it's about death. He had been diagnosed with cancer before he started working on the album. Plus the Lazarus practically shouts at the viewer "I'M DYING".
Well, bendercuck previously said that wated to play Bowie.
Jonathan Rhys Meyers did a pretty good job as him.
EVERY major rock star in the 70s fucked underage girls. Back in those days girls would flock to rock stars after concerts and fuck their brains out. The rock stars didn't seek out the girls, the girls would come to them and the girls would keep their age a secret.
>tfw pleasure principle is a masterpiece
>tfw numan is literally autistic
He's so cute. I liked him on The Graham Norton Show where he's super awkward and deadpan.
I'm still looking for a full clip of him being interviewed by Noel Edmonds that I saw on a documentary. He talks about what foundation he uses, and how his mum cuts his hair.
He had consensual sex with a teenage girl that didn't disclose her age and the girl loved every second of fucking him. Plus it was many decades ago back when society wasn't so uptight about the age of consent. Comparing him to Jared Fogle is retarded.
>implying Outside, Earthling and Blackstar are bad
>implying Low, "Heroes", Station to Station, Scary Monsters, Ziggy Stardust, Hunky Dory, Aladdin Sane, Lodger and The Man Who Sold the World are bad
Im taking the bait, it takes 5 minutes to look up the lyrics to the songs and see that the entire album explores death.
>look up here man, im in heaven
>the clinic called, the x-rays fine
>i've got nothing left to lose
>something happened on the day he died
>i can't give everything away
>He composed the vast majority of the songs on those albums,
Yeah, the shit ones. Like I said, any quality to be found in those albums was all Eno.
Station To Station is a pile of fucking shit.
>wrote every song on Low by himself except for Breaking Glass and Warszawa
>wrote every song on "Heroes" by himself except for the title track, Moss Garden, Neuköln and The Secret Life of Arabia
>wrote every song on Lodger except for DJ and Red Money
>"Bowie's involvement in those was incidental"
>said the Berlin trilogy is good
>is now saying each album is mainly shit
I used to think the same until I looked up his discography and realized I was a fan of over 60% of his songs and had just never known they were his
He was a cultural phenomenon and influenced the majority of music whether you want to admit it or not
>I used to think the same until I looked up his discography and realized I was a fan of over 60% of his songs and had just never known they were his
I listened to his discography extensively in my teenage years and I can tell you that he's fucking terrible. Once you get involved in right wing politics it's hard to take the cuck seriously.
>I'm a faggot please educate me
I dread that hack dying and me having to read about what a masterful genius he was for a week before no one cares anymore. At least the bowie shit is fading away. Tick tock.
>Once you get involved in right wing politics it's hard to take the cuck seriously.
Do you only listen to drone, neo-folk and classical? The vast majority of musical artists are left wing.
No I call George a genius for giving up his back end rights on star wars in exchange for retaining licensing rights to the franchise.
The studios thought he was retarded, but were happy to take all the money. Then george accidentally invented the summer blockbuster tailor made for merchandising, and became his own mint.
>"Bowie fan here"
I get that you're trying hard to fit in with the /mu/ mindset, but you should know that Ziggy is pretty much universally adored there, and rightfully so: it's a very, very good album.
>once you get involved in right wing politics
>mfw someone like this exists
Is every waking moment abject terror for you?
I don't give a shit about /mu/ if a pleb can enjoy it then it's unsophisticated music. I was able to like Ziggy Stardust when I was 12. That's how I know it is bad music. It took me until 19 to get into Low, that's how I know it is better music.
>bleep bloop fags on suicide watch
He's certainly not going to heaven, and the devil knows he will be BTFO if iggy winds up in hell, so he's virtually immortal.
Of course now that Lemmy is reigning over hell, who knows?
come meme with us and pay respect to david bowie lads:
I wouldnt be suprised if they get someone as equally as androgynous. Also he has a deep, bowie-like voice.
I renounced human relationships a long time ago. Now all society is to me is a series of numbers. I want the IQ numbers to rise and the crime rate numbers to fall. This requires the destruction of blacks. It is nothing personal.
this so fucking much. The Next Day > Blackedstar by miles. It's so overrated because he just died, and the other one is overlooked because he didn't make a proper release at first.
I'm getting darn tired of everybody bringing up the /pol/ meme the moment somebody expresses an opinion outside of the reddit norm. How to you exist in the real world? When white supremecists are talking to you do you giggle the words "he he you are pol" to youself?
Now that the dust has begun to settle, is there anyone who could actually play him in the inevitable biopic?
>mfw you're crying over this shit
>When white supremecists are talking to you do
I dunno where you're from but here in america whenever anybody starts spouting off on whatever dumb shit they believe someone is waiting in the wings to tell them to shut the fuck up
i got just the man for the job
Ideally you'd want to start with him being a goofy long haired hippie, who has a hit with Space Oddity and ends up a superstar, then follow the formation of the Ziggy Stardust character, the rise and fall, then him moving to the US and become a drug addict and then an insane fascist with the Thin White Duke, then have the last section Berlin and then circle it around with Ashes to Ashes, playing back to Space Oddity.
That's the most famous part of his career and the easiest narrative, but really you could make a whole fucking series of Bowie movies.
I just want to see Bowie riding his bike in France and Berlin making Low and Heroes with Visconti and Eno.
I know man, me too, me too. That section of "rehab" in Cold War Berlin, also being one of his most creative periods is the most poignant fucking thing. I mean the whole Ziggy Stardust thing is great, but that was a performance art piece of the rock and roll star stereotype story we've seen a hundred times.
I want crippling depression, fast cars and Germans.
Hippie/Proto-Metal Bowie is the most underrated.
But in this case the chemo is even worse than the cancer. You autistic fuckers take everything way too seriously, you ruined this website for everyone else with your endless drama. If /pol/ was laid back and could take a joke as well as being offensive (like old /b/), there would be no problem, but you fairies are constantly offended, like fucking tumblrinas.
>mfw you're still upset over harmless banter
And when you are an adult you will understand how completely retarded what you just said is.
People get into and enjoy music for all different reasons. Some of the catchiest and most engaging pop songs are also the most ingenious and brilliant, some of the most contrived high concept stuff is the most facile at its core.
Well, this was a rather entertaining thread. As always, posting my candidate.
>The former rich liberal teenager who hates himself so he thinks he's a right winged "Badass" starter pack
Jesus bro, can't you just enjoy things?
Maybe this is more of your style https://youtu.be/mhcv_OvUR2s
This board has a strict political policy. This is a pro white male centric board. You are openly praising an overtly leftist song. You're in the wrong here. I'm not going to teach you how to listen to music, that's not my duty. But what is my duty is to redirect cucks to a more appropriate place to protect the integrity of the community. No one who listens to Lady Stardust by David Bowie is a brother in arms in this culture war.
>make up on HIS face.
Looks like cucks back on the menu boys.
Afraid it's gonna happen, son.
I mean, why wouldn't this happen?
She has the SAME angular features as the man, plus, she's a good actress.
Just accept this, and go on with your life, son.
Hahaha. The song is about Marc Bolan and the birth of the glam rock era. Whatever, though. Listening to and enjoying a song's tone and melody doesn't require a political stance, you ridiculous caricature.
>Listening to and enjoying a song's tone and melody doesn't require a political stance, you ridiculous caricature.
I enjoy Blacked scenes for the cinematography and that doesn't make me a cuck and anybody who thinks otherwise needs to go back to /pol/!
No, you just need to stop waging some imaginary war. This is futility. People are going to live their lives the way they want to live them. Why not mind your own plate instead of looking on those of others. You seem insufferable and for no good reason.
>Low and Station to Station
>"Heroes", Hunky Dory and Ziggy Stardust
All god tier. The 70's were prime Bowie. I'll take a few tracks from Aladdin Sane and even fewer from Diamond Dogs and shitcan the rest.
