we have happy and annoyed, I think maybe there is room for sad?

Ever have something that's making you sad but you can't quite put your finger on why? Like you know the reason and what made you sad but you don't know why you care about it?  So then you get confused and sad?

Well so that's what is making me sad right now.  I hope this thread does not seem negative but I think it's okay to talk about what is making you sad too.  Annoyed and frustrated is one thing, but I guess I have a hard time putting things in the "seriously annoyed" category because when I get past the mad and annoyed part and dig deeper, most of the time I am "seriously annoyed" because I was hurt by someone hence then bringing on sad, which seems like annoyed, but it's really just plain old hurt and sad.  Make sense?

Sorry. rambling.  Rolling Eyes

I hope nothing is making you guys sad right now, but hey this is life right?

I am sad about the uncertainty of the future.  Mine to be exact.

Also, I just finished shooting a video, and I always hate that. I go into a project loving it and being psyched, and then I turn on it, get depressed and embarrassed about it, and then hope I never have to see it again.

I did see that one course, but that seemed more for like serious clinical depression or chemical imbalances more than a passing sad feeling or mood type stuff.

My little sad moment passed, I'm okay now.

And yeah crystal, me too! I'm nervous as hell about it, I have been having dizzy spells that I think are anxiety related because of this move. ugh.

this has been my relationship to pretty much everything i've ever created. from poems, to artwork, to snail mail letters. i think my fear is not so much one of commitment to these things, but rather being afraid that i'll be defined by them. i think i fear definition.

making me sad today:

- lost my new glasses this weekend.
- have to buy new ones or wear crappy pair.
- feeling scattered & diluted, melancholic.

ah, an eternal problem. i love those. thing is, you send someone a letter, by the time it reaches them your mood's changed. you write a record, by the time anyone hears it you've got a new girlfriend who apparently thinks all the songs are about her just because she has the same colour eyes, and anyway the rest of your entire outlook on the world has developed. but that document's still gonna say the same thing (and the person reading it is free to take is as definition of your character, should they wish) until the day it disappears forever.

everytime someone spins "hound dog" then elvis is skinny again, which i guess he might like. every time someone spins "positively 4th street" then bob dylan is a vindictive, angry, bitter little man.

also if you're constantly developing then you're constantly finding new ways to find fault with the execution of whatever you did before. treat them as diary entries. artists never reach the end, they just pause in interesting places (to brutally misquote one of the best).

sorry, a bit of a rant, but i felt the need for an outlet.

I am currently coming to terms with the fact that no artwork is ever finished and that I'm still not sure when it's good enough to put down and show others.

Also, I don't know how to make it through that mid-project slump that comes after the initial excitement of starting a new project wears off and is replaced by frustration.

I have a very smart writerly friend who used to make a habit of getting really drunk and sending abusive and/or entertaining emails to random people in his address book.

The reason why he was so smart was because, however drunk he was, he always remembered to go into the Sent Items folder and delete everything before he went to bed. So he could never wake up the next day and re-read things and hate himself.

I'm somewhat in awe of that, because I tend to re-read everything I've ever published, or indeed sent to people (if it's longer'n a few lines), and it always takes me at least a month to go from hating it to not caring, then another month to 'well, that was pretty good, considering where I was then, but if I ever wrote anything like that now, I'd have to break my fingers'. Maybe it would be easier to just publish and delete.

How about some new threads?

What's making you feel fat right now?

What's making you feel possessed right now?

What's making you sit in the dark, biting your toenails right now?

What's making you feel like a great big phooey failure right now?

What's making your stomach feel wubbily and not so good right now?

What's making you wear a dead man's clothes right now?

You'll have to do something special to frighten milly.

Or perhaps something depersonalisingly ordinary.

Milly only comes out at night when he's drunk to let us know how much better than all of us he is.

Words are unnecessary. It's all already there, ready to be seen if you stop trying so hard not to.

Oh shit.  I read that he had a stroke, I didn't realize it was that serious.  I always was a fan of Kirby.  This is a bummer and a half.

44? wow.  man, I don't want to speculate, what with my advanced medical knowledge, but I can think of something that gives athletes strokes when they're still young.

You guys are awful hurtful; I don't Even drink. I used to collect Kirby cards as a kid because my friends collected baseball cards and watched it - a sport I abhorr - baseball - but I shamefully gave it a try, collecting Kirby rookie cards. Strange. I haven't thought of that in years. Only 44. He was younger than I am now when I started collecting his rookie cards (a habit I was to give up when I grew up a little bit more and recognized that no one could make me like any given thing) and that it wasn't smart to like things just because other people liked them. Sad. Oh well, as they say. Hope springs eternal.
