  1. I love Gravity. One of my faves by him.

    And Izaak, this too shall pass. I’ve struggled with depression nearly my entire young life. The biggest battle one will ever face is convincing your mind everything isn’t all bad.

    • I actually heard this song for the first time the other night in a re-run of House on TV. It seemed to reflect my feelings at the time so well that I had to search it out! Can you recommend other good ones by him?

      I think the world we live in has caused a virtual “epidemic” of depression. Of course, my doctors say that the “chemical imbalance in my brain” causes me to see the world in a more negative light than what is normal. I can’t argue with that, but it does seem odd that record numbers of people are taking anti-depressants these days… πŸ˜‰

          • Love his sibling song “83”; his ode to high school, “No Such Thing”; “St. Patrick’s Day” (precisely because of its melancholy); and what I consider the opus of that first CD (Room for Squares): “City Love.” On “City Love,” Mayer manages to sound enamored and hammered — strung out on love and lust and libation.

            Sure, I dig his newer output and he’s amazing live! But that first CD — as I was discussing with a friend in the Midwest — was stupendous!

            I separate the idiotic thing that celebs say (inadvertently or purposely) in the media from their artistic visions and output. So, the hoopla over that interview … bygones. It’s, like, I adore the artistry of Hitchcock even though many of the films scare the bejeezus out of me, and they are all so brilliant — but Alfred Hitchcock the man? I had problems with various aspects of him.

            So, yeah, John Mayer is one of my fave blues players, no matter whether he’s considered pop or adult contemporary.

  2. Just heard the sad news that Gary Moore, solo artist and ex-guitarist with Thin Lizzy has been found dead in a Spanish hotel room. For a flavour of his genius here’s his cover of Hendrix’s ‘Red House’

  4. I’m late in reading your post, IzaakMak. I’m healing from an injury. It made me sad to read that you were going through a serious case of the blues. Many of us have been there and find ourselves there again and again.

    Are you feeling better? I sure hope so. You are well thought of, just so you know.

    Here’s my two cents: What always gets me out of my funk, besides writing (the best elixir oftentimes), is humor. Try renting a film comedy (either a tried-and-true classic or some new flick that you passed on but is now on PPV or free On Demand), or why not view some TV sitcoms on your On Demand line-up if you have that. Also, stepping outside, no matter how frigid it is, during your leisure time to observe and absorb nature works wonders. You’d be amazed by the funny things tiny birds do in the snow. πŸ™‚

    • Better late than never, I always say Chantale! I’m sorry to hear you got hurt. I hope you are healing well and hope you keep us updated. πŸ˜€

      I’m feeling much better myself. Oddly enough, having my computer thumbing its nose at me for a few days has actually been somewhat of a relief. Taking the time to do something other than sit in front of my monitor has been a nice change, and I’ve actually managed to catch up on some movies I’ve been meaning to watch! πŸ˜€

  6. “House” is one of the best shows ever created, an in great part because of its soundtrack. I have found so many songs from that show that I’ve lost count.

    As to the depression, it’s February, the longest month of the year for my depression. Not sure why, but it always happens. If you don’t feel like doing anything, don’t. Just listen to tunes and occasionally wonder why people like John Boehner have power. Pondering such imponderables may take up enough of your time to get you through.

    Hang tough. Peace

    • I can’t tell you how many times I’ve rushed to my PC to search for music I heard during a TV show – especially House It’s so frustrating that I can’t expect this damned thing to hang in there long enough to complete the task. Unfortunately, the vast majority of my pre-recorded music is on my PC as well, which leaves me to wonder about the power of John Boehner while watching cable news! Arrrgghhh!

    • Singing along to my favorites songs has always been a great way to relieve stress. It is, however, very embarrassing to have the music cut off because my PC froze up, leaving me screaming at the top of my lungs with nothing to cover it up! πŸ™„

      • Have you backed up your music and whatever else that is important to you? I ask because I have been lazy and not backed up (you just don’t know how many pics I have lost), you may need to reload your windows. 😦
        AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH ~primal scream for you my friend~
