Manchester Orchestra- Colly Strings
I had to turn off all of the lights and put a hood up for this one. I turned on some music that you didn’t even know existed. This will get deep. I haven’t put any thought into this post. I also haven’t created any fresh, original content in a while so I figured we would try something out.

Sad lil fella.
I spoke about this once before. Dealing with depression can be a lifelong battle. If not for you, then maybe someone you know and love. It’s a serious thing and often people are being discredited by someone calling them something like a pussy or over-sensitive. I can agree that sometimes people are hyper-sensitive sissies but you have to admit that there is such thing as life-crippling depression. Okay? Deal? Deal.
The counter argument to mental illness is that most of these mental illnesses are recently new. And follow me on this because I would agree with some of these people ranting about mental illness because modern medicine has recently had the luxury to spend more time on the brain and how it works thus giving titles to diseases that were once dismissed as witchcraft or demon possession. Yeah, there were no people with depression or ADHD in the 1600’s because those people were given full lobotomies, left to die of starvation in their beds or cooked in their front yards by a mob of angry villagers.
Humans are interesting creatures because we go against Darwinism, in a way. Obviously we have survived this long because we are very adaptable. It’s not the strongest that survive but the ones that are most willing (or able) to change. We harbor the weak. The strong protect the sickly and dying. We don’t just let people with down-syndrome get eaten by lions anymore. We don’t allow people with depression to commit suicide either. Strange, right? Those people who think ADHD or depression doesn’t exist are lucky because if they know someone who feels it first hand, they would be shamed into thinking differently.
