I got back from an exam today. It was too depressing. no
Found myself listening to this song over and over and over again.
Well... at least there's some birds bird and some light idea

What do you listen to when you're down?

What subject was your exam in?

I tend to listen to heavy, loud, driving music when I'm down. I'd rather be angry than sad.

Come to think about that, how can a (good) music make you feel angry? shrug

It can get you in trouble, yes. But they say that sadness is just anger with no energy behind it. I'd rather try to use that negative emotion and turn it into something... maybe exercise, or housework (as silly as that may sound), or any number of other productive activities. With sadness, I just shut down. Much less desirable, IMO.

That's a nice song.
I tend to listen to gloomy stuff first. And angry stuff. And brutal stuff. And then some Hellacopters. :D

I think that sadness got energy behind it. But it's up to you what to do with it. It could be negative energy, and you can translate to anger.
For me, since I'm a bounce type of person most of the times, it's an excuse to sit down and think about stuff, look at things in another perspective. For example look at art or listen to familiar songs and find different angles.

Daniel, post the gloomy stuff

I'd rather post my fave Hellacopters tune. :D




Gloomy stuff would be Katatonia, VAST, Anathema, Red Sparowes, Gnarls Barkley, Tom Waits... Something like that.

How can you enjoy your gloominess with Hellacopters? :P

I love Natural Disaster (Anathema's song) tho I usually hear it while studying.
I only have one CD of Katatonia (Discouraged ones, I can't remember where I put it), I hardly ever listen to it.

Hellacopters is the perfect antidote, when I'm sick of feeling sick. :D

You should definitely get more Katatonia.

Few of the first albums I bought were:
my dying bride
Anathema
Tiamat
I can't relate them to sadness - too much happy memories.

I listened patiently to Katatonia till 2:16 - Then I gave up confused I don't dig it.

Adam, can you get to myspace at your work?

no
I don't remember if you told us before, but where do you work? and why do they block your music? Is it b/c they don't trust you, or b/c ppl were hogging the BW?

Liat, douse turned me on to Katatonia's newest album, Night is the New Day, and it has not left my vehicle cd player since I bought it. I now also have Last Fair Deal Gone Down and I am really digging it.

I looked it up again and finally found it (it was in K, next to Krisium). I'll give it a try one more time (just in case I'm confusing it with Agalloch album). Judging from the song Daniel post, it's gonna be boring. shrug

I work for the Department of Transportation and Development in the State of Louisiana. More specifically, I design bridges in Louisiana.

Blocking internet access is pretty common at most large firms and organizations, as far as I know. It's an attempt to increase productivity by blocking online distractions.

That's sounds interesting. Did one of your bridges turn from paper-bridge to a real bridge?
Does the soil in Louisiana requires special requirement than other places?

Most places I worked at, do not block the internet and if they do, it's from security reasons.
If there's too much work, ppl don't surf the net. shrug
Besides, I use Myspace & youtube as a radio. It's not like I sit and watch it. Blocking music to increase productivity is stupid- Music helps ppl to concentrate & if it doesn't they will turn it off themselves.

I haven't been here long enough (15 months) to really have designed a full bridge of my own, but I have done some work on several bridges that are in various stages of construction.

The overall process of projects here is relatively slow. There's a part of me that doesn't like it. (The part of me that likes to procrastinate and gets distracted easily, that is...)

I think I only have one song of them - "Colorblind". But that one is definitely in my playlist, when I feel like shit and don't want to get better.
