    Good mood thread

    Like so many others, I have a tendency towards depression. Even though the Boston bombing happened on the other side of the world and isn't anyhow connected to me, such events always drain the happy out of me. Can you guys share some happy and joyful stuff? Internet, your life, news, anything.

    I'm forming a new band and I'm pretty excited about that. Been waiting for an opportunity like this for quite some time.

    Also, here's a nice cheer up song.

    Parts & Labor's Fractured Skies is noisy but kind of ebullient: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rEU1RPdtMzE

    The word "ebullient" always makes me think of Bad Manners though, which is probably a better pep choice:

    Pirates are great for cheering up in general.

    I like to watch nature and science programs when I'm in a bad mood, all the better if it's narrated by David Attenborough - that man's voice is the most calming thing on the planet. "The Deep" episode from Blue Planet always cheers me up. I also live within walking distance of the natural history museum where I sometimes go to have a cinnamon roll, a think and some quality time with a blue whale.

    So, um, freaky deep see creatures and stuffed dead things make me happy, apparently.

    If you're feeling lonely, why not listen to a song about an anglerfish? :)

    Obviously the first one is friendship, right?

    Courtesy of Cracked and ignoring the slightly odd choice of music, this brought a stupid smile to my face.

    I played in my first hockey game in about three years earlier this week. Even though it was a late game (11:15 pm on a Tuesday), afterwards I lay in bed feeling really good. It was great to get back out on the ice after having been absent from it for so long. It was at 2:00 am when I realized just how much I missed it, and I wasn't even feeling tired; this coming from a guy who typically falls asleep around 9:30 pm, even on the weekends. I usually wake up between 5:00 and 6:00 am but had little difficulty the next day.

    Getting back into the game is not only an indication that I am physically better (after stopping because of sciatica, which I wouldn't wish on anybody, damn that was hell), it is also an indication that I am in a financially better situation as ice time is quite expensive where I live.

    Life is good!
