This one hurts. This one hurts bad. It was cancer, apparently he'd been fighting it for eighteen months. He went peacefully.

    My friend and I were grooving to Lazarus in the car, talking about how cool his new sound was just yesterday.

    Fuck this one hurts.

    This is a scene from the movie Frances Ha, and uses one of my favourite Bowie songs, Modern Love, as the soundtrack to someone running and dancing for the sheer joy of life.

    They're playing this song on the radio right now and, absurdly, I can feel myself welling up.

    Geeze. He was such an integral part of long-term pop culture. I have a friend who dressed up as him basically every chance they got who is going to be hit really hard by this. :(

    He will, just not in the way we had initially hoped. We'll never forget him, and through his art in our hearts we'll toast him for the brilliant cool mad delightful genius man who sold the world his voice and form for so many years.

    Time to dance the blues, then.

    How sad :( I was never a huge fan of his wider body of work (although I adored specific songs of his) but I admire the enormous impact he had on music and wider pop culture. A true icon.

    There are people to whom even the word Legend is not enough.

    There was only one David Bowie, there will never be another.

    He was one of a kind, even back in the 70s.

    Man, this past year and a half or so has been bad for losing celebrities that are actually worth admiring and respecting. I'm genuinely surprised and saddened by David Bowie's passing. He was a true artist, a generally classy gentleman and arguably the best Sovereign the Guild of Calamitous Intent ever had. He will be sorely missed, but never forgotten.

    Read a review for Blackstar this morning.
    How wonderful if all of this actually represents an entirely new phase in Bowie's extraordinary career. How fantastic to have an album as rich and strange as Blackstar that refuses to yield in a few listens. It suggests that, like a modern-day Lazarus of pop, Bowie is well and truly back from beyond.

    :(

    I liked Bowie's excuse for saying silly things about fascism and Hitler way back in the day.

    I am glad that, before he passed away, he got to see his music performed in the stars

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KaOC9danxNo

    He tweeted his love and support of this, but I cannot find that tweet.

    He will be missed and loved.

    he was doing so much cocaine in the mid 70s he was seeing hallucinations of the characters he played and shit.

    man gets a pass there.

    Like many people I'm sure, I'd been rocking out to Blackstar the last few days.

    Cancer sucks.

    edited January 2016
    As a young person, the first time I was really aware who David Bowie was, was in 2001 when he was the first musical performer at the Concert for New York City after the 9/11 attacks. He came out to a dark stage, sat cross-legged in the center of the spotlight, and played a tiny children's piano and sang Simon and Garfunkel's "America" with calliope music in the background. It's stuck with me until this day. It always seemed like such a subdued and humble way to start such a special concert. He was a part of my healing.

    E: It's apparently not on Youtube anymore, but if you Google "David Bowie America" it does come up still.

    It didn't even dawn to me until after this concert when I was re-watching the movie that David Bowie was the guy in Labyrinth.

    He was also the best part in Zoolander.

    E: Also, also the greatest bass riff ever:

    Bowie was even awesome in Omikron (yes, the David Cage game) where he was in a virtual band that virtually performed New Angels of Promise (from Hours) with slightly modified lyrics.

    He is so iconic.

    This is the worst possible thing to wake up to. David Bowie was the best.
