|What A Week|
A classmate of mine died Tuesday night. He fell from a bridge here in
town. Imagine that, dying in your senior year of high school... You never
think something like that will hit so close to home. We weren't very close
friends, but in a class of 140 students, of course we were friendly. Hell, I
had him over for "playdates" a few times in 3rd grade or so. It's still so
surreal, anyway here's a few related musical musings.
This song's taken on a whole new meaning to me, his funeral was today. Never had
someone close to me die before, and this song puts my feelings better musically
and lyrically than I could ever hope to. God, it even drizzled today as they loaded
the casket into the hearse.
"Tell me why he went, it seems to be/ An element to this mystery/ It's so cold
today, so I get away, and I'm left behind with nothing but words"
I finally gave into the hype and listened to this album, turns out it's worth it. Any
similar suggestions? I dunno what I'd call this music, I just want more like it.
Road to Joy
Something about this really connects with me, this song more so than the others
on the album. Anyone have any recommendations?
|Don't know when I'll feel better, or if I ever fully will. Can you get over something like this?|
|Same here. A recently graduated senior from my high school passed away less than a week ago. I wasn't acquainted with him, though. |

|Two of our students at my High School commuted suicide over the course of like 6 months. I didn't know any of them but damn I saw both of them the day before they did it.|
Listen to Coil- Ape of Naples
|Road to Joy is fucking incredible and RIP|
|That's life for ya I guess. It sucks but I'm gonna have to get used to it cuz the alternative is likely worse. |
