 David Bowie has passed away. First Lemmy, now Bowie.

 Like... it's that generation where the majority of the music was easy to listen to but now it seems that everyone is dying.

 Here's hoping Angus Young isn't next.

Brb crying in my room while playing my ziggy vinyl.

I'm not okay.

Also I have an assignment in for today but I should technically get an extension because I'm not emotionally stable enough to do the work rn

On the bright side, the world's most abstract band has just been formed in heaven: Bowie, Hendrix, Lemmy and Keith Moon

Bowie far surpasses Lemmy in so many ways. Bowie has one of the most impressive discographies in music, he pushed so many boundaries, and even this decade he was releasing great music. Truly one of the best to do it, point blank.

It's such a shame he couldn't fight on and beat the cancer

Same parent/daughter tandem at bowling causing trouble again. Once the girl graduates, both of them are going to realize they have no arrows of hate left to fire and everyone else will not have even knocked an arrow. I'm just sick of it, but we can't kick the parent out of practice since it's a public forum, sadly.

^However, some cancer patients do flat out just give up the will to live and never even begin to fight. So really both of you are kinda right and wrong at the same time.

I got a new pair of glasses today and I have to adjust to them now.

using the words "fight on" didn't mean that I meant that you get over it by praying and believing that it will just go away eventually, it was more so in terms of his body not being able to literally fight on.

Everything is open to interpretation though I guess.

yeah im not sure i believe you. this is really bad backpedalling and the pseudointellectual milquetoast fencesitting comment on the end to try and appear pragmatic doesn't help either. just stop while you're ahead behind

^However, some cancer patients do flat out just give up the will to live and never even begin to fight.

close, but "fight" in this context signifies that anyone apart from the graces of medical science "fights" against it as if there is "winners" and "losers". cancer either kills you or it goes into remission and you quietly fear it coming back for the rest of your life, such is the nature of the thing.



the point is its a bit of a Social Faux Pas to make with oncology people to go on about it being a "fight" and its like saying "i'll pray for you", its kind of a cringey rookie mistake

Norm MacDonald did a good bit on this, where you don't really "lose" the fight with cancer so much as "it's a draw."  And furthermore, you don't wanna go out a loser that lost a fight with cancer.

Also, I don't see how people can really survive cancer on sheer force of will.  It's really odd that this whole idea became a colloquialism.

Not really, it's more so just having to justify the nature of my statement because of a misconception / presumption
