My mom is awesome. Once I let her listen to the song Triad, from album Lateralus, by Tool, and she said, “This is excellent. It really conveys so much pain.” I’m like, “Holy shit, mom gets it.”
Right now, she’s going through a lot of pain, and I wanted to make a playlist and burn some CD’s for her (no MP3’s for her; she’s cool, but she’s in her middle 60’s, and some things she’s just not gonna get), so I spent the last hour and a half putting together all the songs that I listen to when I’m depressed, thinking, “These help me get through the tough times, so maybe they’ll help her, too.”
And then I tried to save it, and somehow it corrupted and I lost the whole list.
I know it’s irrational, but maybe I should take this as hint that all the playlist would do is depress her more, and I should forego entirely?
