FridayQ: Depression

Posted on Friday, July 15th, 2005

Dave!What's the most depressing song you've heard and movie you've watched? Depressing song would have to be something country-western, since I find all of it depressing. But since I don't know the names of any country songs, I guess I'll say "It Couldn't Happen Here" by the Pet Shop Boys. It's not so much the lyrics, as the song's tempo. Easily the most depressing movie ever was Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace because we waited nearly TWO DECADES for that steaming pile of crap. The minute Jar Jar Binks appeared on the screen, I wanted to shoot myself. Well, myself or George Lucas. But mostly George Lucas.

What's the most depressing place you've been? Hollywood, California. Not so much for the city or the people, but because I had a dream project of mine utterly crushed there by a whole team of lying bastards that will roast in hell for all eternity (assuming there is justice in this world... or the next). Every time I go back to L.A., the memory of it consumes me totally, and I'm depressed for days. The smog and traffic doesn't help either. Hmmm... I guess it is the city and the people after all.

What's the most depressing event in current news to you? Gee. How do you choose just one? The London bombings are, of course, depressing me because I love the city so much and have some good friends there. Continuing break-downs in the Middle East along with the ever-growing death-toll in Iraq is seriously depressing. Those f#@%ers at Halliburton getting a new government contract, despite having ripped-off the American people for millions, is mind-numbingly depressing. Then there's Dafur, FOX News, Haiti, lawyers, and the list goes on and on. But what I find most depressing of all is that the top story around the world is the release of a new Harry Potter book. WTF?!?

FQ REMEDY: List five things you do to make yourself feel better when depression strikes.

  1. Ride my motorcycle.
  2. Watch Elizabeth Hurley in Bedazzled.
  3. Eat chocolate ice cream with whipped cream on top.
  4. Paint.
  5. Get drunk.

I'd like to say that watching DVDs or recordings of my favorite television shows makes me feel better... but since most of them are cancelled, I just get more depressed.

Movie Quotable of the Day: "I know... I've been really naughty, haven't I? Perhaps a good spanking's in order?"
Yesterday's Answer: Mystic Pizza (1988) with Julia Roberts and Vincent D'Onofrio.

    Oh my it’s so many years since i last heared it couldn’t happen here. I used to find it quite heavenly, but then i’ve never understood why people find radiohead’s stuff depressing so that probably expains it. Have you seen the film? It’s.. um.. golly.
