This is my front page. If you want me to add you, drop me a line here. Or, add me. Either way, I'll check you out. You can also drop me a line here if, for instance, you don't have my email address. All comments here are screened.

This post also includes every tag I have -- this is because my current LJ style doesn't include a tag index. (At least half of my participation on LJ is on my phone. I chose this style because, as bare-bones as it is, it loads quickly and it's still readable on a small screen.)

I'd tell you more about myself, but that's what my profile -- and the rest of my LJ -- is for.

I'm in a bad place, emotionally. I'm currently trying to deal with that with a few hits of beautiful and depressing music. Yes, depressing music. I can't take cheerful music when I get like this -- it's too much like leaving a very sick, beloved pet at home, walking to work through pouring rain without an umbrella, being miserable when you get there... and having that one obnoxiously chipper coworker you can't stand smiling in your face and talking about how it's such a wonderful day, come on, why don't you smiiiile?

For me, at least, depressing music helps.

  • Adagio for Strings, by Barber. This one is conducted by Rostropovich, and it's probably the best version I've heard. But I'm probably biased -- when it comes to classical music, I love the Russians.

  • Finale, from Suor Angelica by Puccini.

  • Lacrimosa, from the Mozart Requiem.

  • Symphony No. 3, by Górecki

  • The Dead Island Trailer, by Giles Lamb. This is the soundtrack for the trailer for a video game about zombies, and it's a hundred times more beautiful than it has any right to be. The symphonied-up version is worth a listen, too.

  • Emerald Forest and the Blackbird, by Swallow the Sun. This is death metal, and as with the previous link, it's more beautiful than it has any right to be.
