Happy t-day: this post was written stream of consciousness (with some from previous thoughts that surfaced along the way!) over 3 posts on Facebook!
Bon (AC/DC) music good for empathy, like daytime TV; Jeremy Kyle used to be in the UK, Jerry Springer in USA, don’t know Oz; and anger distraction; like thrash/punk music, or Guns N’ Roses, with Axl a big Bon fan.
Bon story more of a tragedy, although he did reach the top before falling off the rock n’ roll peak, so not really uplifting for me. For uplifting I listen to dance music such as uplifting house and trance; and now ‘Viking’ music such as Heilung (Healing in English). ‘Viking’ music is often sad and melancholy like Bon lyrics too (but without the humour!), with Solstafir’s Necrologue about a 20-something friend who succumbed like Bon; introduced live here: https://youtu.be/9urJMiTsJB0.
I don’t think it’s an anti-depressant, but it is empathetic, showing those feelings are quite common. I think you either choose to continue on that path, or you leave; often because you just get bored of it, like Sharon said about Ozzy in the Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne docufilm (available on BBC now in UK), and I did: too old to die young (and stay pretty), like Debbie Harry of Blondie sang in the 70s!
The sun is greater than the (w)hole of humanity.
My adaptation of the above philosophical idea. It’s only a mental thing, as physically I’m still dependent on humanity supplying food and drink; thanks again to the necessary key workers. It’s for those who think humanity is toxifying their minds, but can’t leave their ‘social group’ because they think it’s ‘normal’; or that they owe it to them or some ‘idea’ or ‘marketed concept’, such as youth or human.
I’ll leave you today, with the t-day anthem:
