>>54848252

Crazy mexican stalker fan got so butthurt because he hated Bjork "racemixing" with Goldie and his own gyno and being a beta bitch, sent her letter bombs, filmed a 20+ hour long video where he shaved his head, painted his face and ranted and then shot himself. Basically changed Bjork from cheery, cute pop debutante to her darker, more experimental works starting with Homogenic
>>
>>54848368
on the contrary he was probably my favourite thing about the film. The entire story just leads to... nothing

>pioneering jungle
nah. could say he pioneered d&b but that'd be a stretch. very influential though and a great artist in his prime.

>grew up in a cult
>serious thoughts about suicide during the Dead Deer recordings
>has suffered from clinical depression for years

>>54848439
I like that he starts out with dreams but no talent, and then finishes the movie with crushed dreams and still no talent. Shit's pretty lulzy

>>54848362
I was half joking but supposedly she ran away from home in her early teens to live in a squat community of punks, then she became the vocalist of an allgirl crust punk band where she was discovered by Ethan Kath, who recruited her for Crystal Castles at 15, after which she just kept touring for years after their rapid success. She has also said she just listened to the same Darkthrone album for years while living a life of drug abuse

Rumor has it she has been abused since she was a child, and also by her bandmate
>>
>>54848628

I guarantee Alice Glass has been raped a few times.
>>
>>54848600
No shit. His "suffer trauma and disappear back home and then mysteriously reemerge as a villain seeking revenge behind a cold steel mask" thing is an exact mirror of Dr. Doom's story. That's why he chose the name

Love Lennon but if you think he had it hard go fuck yourself. My pops dipped and I barely knew my mom too. Unlike Lennon I'm not, well, John fucking Lennon. He had a great life and accomplished more then most musicians ever could. Who cares if he got depressed once in awhile.
