Music directly affects my mood, to the extent that I have to curate my listening to or I’ll quickly descend into melancholy, most likely within three or four tracks arriving at this song, at which point I’ll be in tears, overwhelmed by the impossibility of life without pain.

To clear my emotional taste-buds of that overwhelming mood of lament, and to get back on the world, I have to play something brutal, like this.

At which point, functionality returns.
