This is a spectrogram of Blackstar. while i was listening to it i had this weird feeling and wanted to run it through the spectrogram program. Do you guys see text at around 4:30, it was during this eerie off-tune part of the song, I don't know maybe I'm seeing what I want to see.
Also RIP David
Besides his "lifestyles" was he really all that blasphemous? I will never be a rock god, but I assume when you can have any woman you want for so long, a little guy on guy spices it up.
you idiots on /x/ dont get its, black star, Lazarus, it was him saying goodbye, he knew he was dying when he made this album.
Everyone thought it was just typical bowie being a weirdo but then he died and it all makes sense now.
Lazarus (David Bowie)
Look up here, I’m in heaven
I’ve got scars that can’t be seen
I’ve got drama, can’t be stolen
Everybody knows me now
Look up here, man, I’m in danger
I’ve got nothing left to lose
I’m so high it makes my brain whirl
Dropped my cell phone down below
Ain’t that just like me
By the time I got to New York
I was living like a king
Then I used up all my money
I was looking for your ass
This way or no way
You know, I’ll be free
Just like that bluebird
Now ain’t that just like me
Oh I’ll be free
Just like that bluebird
Oh I’ll be free
Ain’t that just like me
I spectrogrammed Lazarus and nothing was awry, but to be honest, if anyone didn't know that he was saying goodbye in this song even before he died, they might have some intelligence issues. He called it a parting gift the day the album released.
Bowie had cancer for eighteen months, m8. Bowie may not have known he would have died two days after his birthday, yet he knew his time here on earth was near it's expiration date. And he trudge through it all, fought like a lion. And gave the fans his final swan song, a gift in the form of an album - Blackstar.
He prepared it all. His affairs he had here? Set them straight. It's not uncommon for someone to do the same when they know they can kick the can and croack over like a frog at any minute. Death comes for you during uncertain times. And until then, you have to get ready to accept it all, which Bowie did came to accept Death's indifferent and cold embrace.
>Do you guys see text at around 4:30
You suffer from two symptoms. The first is called faggotry, where OP continue to be a faggot. And the second, is called pareidolia. You want to see something there or believe there is a hidden message beyond a deadman song and your brain is deceiving you.
>You want to see something there or believe there is a hidden message beyond a deadman song and your brain is deceiving you.
That's not what pareidolia is.
Some of it looks vaguely like letters or numbers, so your brain fills it in and makes you think it is words or numbers.
imo that crucified man is supposed to be one of the old messianic cults. You have the Jewish Messianists / Kabbalists (represented by an man in Orthodox Jewish clothing), Masons (represented by a white man in a black and white shirt, center stage), and Sinister/Gnostic cults (represented by a woman and on stage left of all three). This is a "true god" coming to overturn the false ideologies (blind straw-men) of would be world rulers.
As for what it is, that's anyone's guess, but it was called through the head of an astronaut manifested by a woman. Possibly the second coming? Or just straight-up aliens?
The other thing of note: the "solitary candle" is at the bottom of a stairway, not the top. That alone is fairly subversive.
remind me of the babe!
He probably did know, but it wasn't a gift, so we would see him off (One last song before he left). It was a tribute honoring his evil master Lucifer, I've seen Blackstar only an uninformed idiot would claim it was just about him dying.
Just remember LittleKuriboh predicted it first.
Agreed completely. Theres no conspiracy. He knew,and he made a good meaningful album to see himself off. Its tragic and amazing at the same time. No need to for all the extra conspiracy shit.
most likely is me making things up, but I heard stuff like he's slithering, I'm staring through the window, I'm the messenger, I'm sorry lucifer, just the regular tinfoil hat brain making things up
So, how hard do you get just pissing in every thread on X tonight, calling everyone a faggot and an asshole? We get it, you've got everything all figured out and the rest of us are faggot retards. What happened, got beat down to shit on a different board and need to feel like a big man? Poor li'l sweetie.
for those skeptics who sayy he is just another rock star,nothing paranormal, almost everything about him in fact is
Bowie had very deep ties in many forms of the occult practices new, old ,and ancient
You guys are killing me.. OP asked a simple question. Think you see something creepy? then speculate. Don't see anything and think OP is a fag? Of course he is, but you can fuck off back /b/ anyway. All you assholes wasting thread tacking "Parabola" and "Bowie fucks asses" on all this are the same people always complaining that /x/ sucks now. Make the fucking connection and go somewhere more your speed.
Look back at this thread. How many post's do you see that actually have anything to do with OP's question? It's all wasted thread. I see some some shit, and I can't quite make it out. no one has offered an opinion. there is nothing here to fucking agree on. There is nothing here to be wrong about. so yes, YOU in particular should leave.
>no one has offered an opinion
It's pareidolia, as stated earlier in the thread.
>Don't see anything and think OP is a fag? Of course he is, but you can fuck off back /b/ anyway
You just can't handle people telling you that your "theory" or opinion is wrong.
>It looks like writing!
Uh no it doesn't
>IF YOU AREN'T GOING TO CONFIRM WHAT I WANT TO BELIEVE THEN FUCK OFF!!!!!!
it's only shills.
you know you can use ctrl+up/down and ctrl+shift+up/down to mess around with it, and stretch the screen to try make it more legible.
I heard that first one....
7.16 intelligible sounds like a name and "he wrote the <...> words"
7.21 at half speed. "they're more for an invalid"?
maybe something about rebirth?
According to Druidic mysteries, two scarlet snake eggs were hidden within the Willow. The Universe was hatched from these two eggs, one containing the Sun, the other the Earth, relating to both cosmic birth and the birth of mankind.
It's a board about the 'paranormal' and it's most usual threads are ones asking how to make aliens, bigfoot and skinwalkers fall in love with you.
If there are people who lurk here to throw cold water on the idea that musicians hide messages in their music (which is a proven fact) then I say they are likely a shill, because I'm so stupid I can't imagine why they'd do a thing as low as staying in this place arguing against the most reasonable topics. Is it a coping mechanism, or is it logic?
There is no right or wrong, especially when people jizz out their opinion on another. To qualify another as wrong is to admit someone is right, in which case, someone's ego is getting fueled.
In a world void of absolute truth, OPINION prevails.
1:21-1:23 "Lucifer" had to turn on the spatialiser to get this, playing in regularx1 and this way it's very clear.
1:33-1:35 "i'm asleep in the willow"
1:37-1:40 "this career's been run" hahah
1:55-1:57 "Lucifer" same as 1:21
2:07-2:10 "<achkt> Here is the last words" playing at 0.31x; perhaps it is 'the lost's words'
2:11-2:15 - "They're more for an invalid"
2:33-2:35 - "?" Can't get anything from this.
Just the 'I'm asleep in the willow' is the biggest give away; he has a property called willow creek.
good eye, I didn't notice.
here's a bonus... do you see more than the face in the corner?
Before I go to bed adjusting this:
1:21-1:23 "Living with Lucifer". Fiddle with spatialiser to get this (1.0 dry and 1.0 damp), playing in 0.69x for the first second and 1.00x for the other two.
It could be an audio watermark. You can't really hear it but depending on the type it can show up in spectrograms.
Most common in sample packs (drums, keys, etc) but commercial releases have started using them too, especially with promotional/pre-release and pre-masters. These days you can create an almost inaudible (sounds like very slight distortion, most people won't pick it up since modern tracks are mastered so loud anyway) spectral watermark.
That said they're typically in the 1-3kHz range, not the whole audible spectrum. If you can actually hear something in the song, then it could be something else.
It's pareidolia. You see patterns that look vaguely like letters and assume it's words.
You hear sounds that kind of sound like words and you make sentences out of it.
Even if Bowie was hiding messages in his music, it's not paranormal.
If he had any big paranormal secret to share he would have done it publicly, knowing he was about to die anyway.
I don't know if you are familiar with the album. I might be the first to tell you that he ends it by saying "I can't give it all away" a few times.
Being a Bowie listener, I understand that he is talking about himself. The "it" here is not his life, or his love, or anything personal. He is talking about some esoteric knowledge. He is trying to tell you something, while he is telling you that it will be blatant.
Take a couple weeks, listen to everything twice. Not everything is pareidolia. Does pareidolia explain the beatles "number 9." The beatles told everyone they recorded it backwards. Does pareidolia explain Heath Ledger's perfect depiction of the tarot's "hanged man" on screen before his death?
Is there a term for when people like you see pareidolia everywhere. Possibly schizophrenia applies, possibly ignorance applies. It is well known that mass media is laced with all sorts of shit. It always has been, and always will be.
When "the chemical wedding" came out as a Rosicrucian treatise, I'm sure there were plenty of people like you saying it didn't mean anything. When ozzy recorded "mr. crowley" I'm sure he wasn't talking about Aleister, right?
When bowie sang
"I'm closer to the Golden Dawn / Immersed in Crowley's Uniform" on Hunky Dory, there's no way he was talking about the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, right?
There may be nothing in the spectrogram, but at least admit there is something more to this album than music.
"Oy vey stupid goy cattle!It's parablabla! parablabla is a real condition. Everyone should understand parablabla. Their ears will deceive them otherwise! And I tell you that /x/ is used for promoti-I mean investigating music videos with the spooky kabbalah imagery...not this crap!"
Why would the illuminati sneak an image of an evil looking dog wearing a bowler hat with a star on top into their symbol.
I think that's worse than wearing a skull like an SS man, given how weird it is.
Read the whole thing but checked out mentally at straw man. The rest is meh why would he make his last message one pointing out basic religion stuff and also vague prophesy why not stuff-i feel like you're wrong imo
I haven't heard somone describe a song as evil or something since Grande school. Wow.
>I don't know why or what it is about
I know your ignorance is astounding. Its a song about a musician dying and singing a sad beautiful song about it. Ya chump.
yep, this looks intentionally fucking weird.
without the eye dots, it looks like a bounded ayy lmao.
with eye dots, like some devil dog with a policeman hat. never saw this idea to melt the triangle this way, nice
I didn't make the gif I just stumbled on it without noticing. It's lucky someone did notice.
An English Bobby was one of my first impressions as well, but I know it to be a reference to the Dog Star, Sirius. I believe English Freemasons wear bowler hats, besides paying their respects to Sirius, so I'll presume that's what it represents.
It may be a merkabah, which is something to do with logos, but in the end a symbol is only a symbol. Best be careful not to read into it, like whether it's trapped or not, could be a huge distraction to see it that way.
As someone mentioned it may be a watermark put in with that lower quality 128kbs version of the song, or maybe it's been tweaked and OP was playing a joke. Would help to know where he got it.
is no one going to help carry on deciphering the backmasking, so there can be some agreement on what's being said?
I know some have already done so but it seems they might not want to advance the common knowledge.
I bet the paredolia guy sees something here
You bet I do, if that isn't Ziggy Stardust's face in the bottom there, I don't know what is...
