I bet David Bowie has an attic somewhere with a portrait of him getting older.
I bet David Bowie can divide by zero
I can understand your confusion, but I think five things will clear it up.
- Goths aren’t actually as homogeneous as they pretend, and no where near as uniform as people think. We tend to think every Goth looks like Andrew Eldritch and Patricia Morrison and only listen to the same Gothic bands, but that’s just not the case. Many Goths like artists as diverse as: Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, John Coltrane, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams III, Hank Williams, Lucinda Williams, Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, The Beatles, The Doors, Slayer, Iron Maiden, Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk, Duran Duran, Billy Idol, even old school hip hop like Run DMC, The Sugarhill Gang, and Grandmasterflash. (Oh ho! Did I let your secret out with that last one?)
- Goths are passionate about the sublime. Usually an individual will fall more strongly into the either the “fashion” or “music” camp, and that causes some… tension now and then, but be it music, fashion, fine art, literature, movies, etc. Goths want to be transported by their art. They’re nerds, that’s what I’m trying to say. So when they like music they will end up exploring all the artists and genres they can, even if they have 10 favorite artists always on their ipod or in their car. You see how Bowie would make Goths happy then, right? He’s all over music, fashion, and acting. He’s always evolving and challenging his fans, giving them a new fantastic world to lose themselves in. He draws from more diverse sources than most of us mere mortals could hope to understand. He slips into the underground, the past, far corners of world, puts his collection in a witch’s brew and pulls out a pop album.
- Labyrinth. Dude, DUDE, Labyrinth.
- He really speaks to outsiders. He’s this mix of shockrocker, folk singer, and diva that says. “Fuck those people who try to bring you down, they’re just the product of a cruel world; jealous of your shining uniqueness in a dull sea of boring.”
- He’s DAVID BOWIE.
I Want My Hat BackThe David Bowie version
LOU YOU WANKER
[Lou I’ma-slap-a-bitch Reed threatens an emaciated Bowie. Mick Jagger looks away, uncomfortably.]
‘Lou had been discussing details regarding his upcoming new album- as yet un-recorded. Lou asked David if he would be interested in producing the record and David replied yes - but only upon the condition that Lou would stop drinking and clean up his act. And upon that reply, the aforementioned chaos ensued.
‘It should be noted that this verbal bantering also continued into the night back at the hotel -With Bowie in the hallway demanding that Reed “come out and fight like a man” Eventually it all quieted down as Lou never reappeared to continue the fight, and was most likely already fast asleep.’
DAVID BOWIE WITH A KITTEN ON HIS HEAD
just his face in the last gif saying “i have a tiny kitten on my head.” why is this even happening?
I needed this.
I’ve been somewhat broken by this. Please standby.
I must watch real housewives of PompeIi or whatever to regain my strength…
I bet David Bowie ascended to God tier when he was like 20 and stayed there his entire life.
FYI, there was no wind machine on set during this scene. This happens when David Bowie’s electric sex wishes to be released.
My relationship with people.
I don’t think a bowie gif has ever been more relevant in my life at a particular moment.
TODAY IN HISTORY
[Color photo: Iggy Pop looking crazed, Bowie affecting distress]
I think we’d all like to live down that time Iggy kidnapped David Bowie and eventually climbed to the top of the Empire State Building with him, but people will keep circulating the photos.
Goth skill: being so hot even your clothes molest you.
I love this outfit. He looks like he could be performing at the Batcave!
“And I shall not be dark, but beautiful and terrible as the Morning and the Night! Fair as the Sea and the Sun and the Snow upon the Mountain! Dreadful as the Storm and the Lightning! Stronger than the foundations of the earth. All shall love me and despair!” - David Bowie
WOW. Just all of that.
