first line of pitchfork's review of his latest album, which they posted 5 days ago:

David Bowie has died many deaths yet he is still with us.

Damn. Didn't even know Bowie was sick. Got to see him once in New Orleans many years ago. Great show.

Oh, and unless I missed it, this thread was disappointingly quiet about his recent album, which is pretty fantastic.

Ugggggggggggghhhhh. Finally went to bed just as a couple friends posted a link about this, but it was from a super shady-looking site so I figured it was just another internet death hoax and went to sleep. This is the [expletive] worst.

Anyone else see the "David Bowie Is..." exhibit when it was at the MCA in Chicago in 2014?

Who the hell would have called Iggy Pop being the last man standing of the original punk and glam scenes?

Had no idea it came out until today. Based on the 20 or so mins or so I listened to it this morning he continued to be different and fresh all the way to the end. Very very few artists who spend 45 years making music can claim something similar. RIP

David Johansen (aka Buster Poindexter) of The New York Dolls is still alive. He's in the Bill Murray Christmas special he just did for Netflix.

I think it just wasn't what anyone was expecting. I thought it was just OK, but it turned out that Bill Murray just wanted to actually do a plain ol' Christmas special, which was not what I went in thinking it would be. It was like that VERY short-lived Comedy Central series with him and his brothers that people thought would some Caddyshack-inspired hilarity and it ended up actually just being them travelling around and playing golf and...that's it.

Still kicking myself I never picked that up when Criterion put it out. A new Criterion edition DVD or BR were already ridiculously expensive; now they're just going to skyrocket.

When you think about Bowie as a creator and performer and then consider what an interesting and likeable person he seems to be; it's really one of a kind.

He's many generations standard bearer for (I can think of the word really but will go with) "countercultural icon" while being a commercially successful and accessible pop culture artist. He doesn't seem to have a peer. Maybe he was taking the art brut of the time and adding his brand of pop to it or just being an original artist. I don't know enough about the 70s to properly put him in context.

I loved the New York Dolls.

Just last week at work a couple of us were talking about how Bowie still put out good new music. It's a shame he passed while the Stones keep trucking on while not making any new decent music in 40 yrs.

Saw Car Seat Headrest on Saturday. Scored tix to Beach House today. Tomorrow I'll grab a couple tix to see Courtney Barnett. Good concert week early in 2016 after a pretty down 2015.

Just hoping Tame Impala expands their NA tour to play Seattle, esp since they aren't in the Sasquatch lineup.
