But that is explicable. As is the single glove or the single abandoned shoe.
I think the idea of anyone walking alone at any age isn't a bad thing. Why should it be? I know a lot of people fiercely proud of their lack of dependence on others, and when people get older that independence matters to them MORE. And yet, even though I know their pride is better for walking alone, perhaps, it makes me sad nonetheless.
makes me sad
has much more in common with you than you previously realised
I found myself totally agreeing with the 3 above, and then of course noticed you had exactly the same, and of course I thought that you thought I was an idiot (I dont think you are).
mistakenly going off on a wrong (non cat_race like) tangent
beside their snoring bruiser girlfriends as they leave for work
Am I baiting my hooks wrong?
Ridley scott spent a lot of time and effort to try to entertain us, and what do you do? you willfully find plot holes, which are not holes, but merely unfilled in plot (do you really want everything explained? that would ruin storeytelling)
I quite liked Prometheus, even though it was a bit disappointing, and steps a bit on the 'alien-ness' of the original Alien by trying to explain it.
With no relation to Alien whatsoever, I think people would be more forgiving.
and then the studio gave the script to some other guy.
Prometheus was god-awful, nonsensical shit.
i love your posting and ethos a lot.
But i will be cold and lifeless before I say that Prometheus was anything other than a badly executed, already-shite concept
I am now inexplicably sad, and am questioning my own judgement and why i like a film that others don't like so much
used to find it funny, now it's just GRIM
Sorry if anyone here has just got married but, yeah, wedding photos.
trainers hanging from telephone wires
can't think of any examples sorry
there's a balloon stuck in a tree outside my house. it was for a 21st birthday so i'm sure the person isn't too crushed it flew away but it's just stuck in this tree and now it has deflated and it's rustling and i just want it to go away but it probably never will
It's made me a completely jaded and cynical individual.
I had to stop reading it - it's too relentlessly negative
but have become established as sad in the past, or are associated with being as such in history, and in the media.
Why does the concept of isolation evoke sadness, for instance? Is it inexplicable if we suggest that it's because of some id-based recollection?
What happened to that brilliant, frightening, energetic, dangerous, charistmatic young thing from Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, Deer Hunter? Even Goodfellas?
that, in growing old he lost that fire in his belly. I sometimes wonder what would have become of e.g. James Dean had he grown old and made more films. Same for musicians/rock stars who died young.
but at the time it seemed so bad
That was the saddest thing I saw this weekend. Dude was staggering all over the place. Scarred nose from excessive fighting as well. Poor auld bastard
I don't get how people can watch them ironically, just so depressing
But now aren't.
**on a wet day
Like Chelsea losing.
i don't even think it's possible to feel sad inexplicably
but are otherwise completely mentally and physically healthy
recently at a 21st i met this girl who was really sweet, she'd come down for this so i didn't know her at all before then. anyway, it was pretty low-lit so i didn't notice her eyes at the time. anyway, we got along really well and then things escalated after a few drinks and we're hooking up in the corner (i heard afterwards that she had just come out of a longterm relationship). she checks her phone at one point, and i notice that the font size on everything is really big. i was really close to saying something (being drunk and not at all clever) but luckily i didn't get the opportunity. i realised later on that she was obviously partially blind, but i obviously didn't say anything. the next day someone mentioned it to me and said "well, she could have been hooking up with a mannequin for all she knew" and this really upset me. pretty fucked up thing to say really. because people probably say shit all the time behind her back, and i know it'd drive me crazy if i developed a sight impediment. and saying stuff like that really de-humanises someone, and that kind of thing really hits me to the core.
TL;DR i'm really sensitive about this kind of thing because it must be incredibly frustrating and other people are dicks about it
we have a solid entrant right here..
I juist like to join in
For any reason.
At any time.
nail on th'ead
whether they have actual actors looking like they've given up, or terrible CGI / clip art characters, they never fail to dampen slightly even the brightest of days
more so if you know booze and/or drugs is a contributing factor.
I can't stop picturing them waking up the following morning with a massive hangover/comedown, to a wife they don't love, their gran probably has cancer or something, just having a huge existential crisis about their lives and job and friends they were out with the previous night who they actually don't like but it all seems ok when they are feeling the high of said booze and/or drugs and it makes you think how happiness is only ever extremely brief and fleeting, and if it ever exists at all for some people.
IN fact, we probably all are with the genuinely inexplicable examples.
The offender often forgets the ancestory and pride.
My partner admitted she would not take it if we married. As much as I disagree with the fundament of a wife as a chattel, it does make me sad.
She loves it. Shes completely insane though so maybe it should make me sad.
and seeing a scattering of old blokes sitting alone at different tables nursing a pint, thus seeing warny's future
Though I suppose that's explicable
Overweight and out of date.
It's so fucking funny, it's absurd.
I still like to bark along to that on occasion.
but then i'm often taken my a slight melancholy
but keep trying to bait people anyway
especially if it comes with a really bad dye job.
Yeah, old men in suits generally, especially when you know they've made a big effort to look smart but look crumpled and dishevelled.
Old dudes in general. (not inexplicable at all really, back to the drawing board.)
almost teared up to these a few times, for no good reason
Most depressing song ever apart from
Don't Worry Be Happy by Bobby McFerrin.
It depresses the shit outta me.
They should make me happy, but they just make me feel.... sad
Some show on Cbeebies that I don't know the name of, they do the same song every episode and there's a fox singing about following its nose, when it sings "where it will LEAVE ME, nobody knows...". That high pitch just hits a nerve and makes me feel really miserable.
Must be the note or something, someone on a podcast was tlaking about being at his uncle's funeral and he was dealing with it fine until the organist hit a certain chord and from thereon he was a mess of bawling sobbing hysteria.
with the suicide invoking singing...! Yes!
Actually, cbeebies related, the continuous presence and popularity of Justin Fletcher CBE makes me and many parents inexplicably sad...
change the thread to 'things that are sad for complex, non-obvious reasons', please.
like when someone puts loads of effort into a post at the end of a thread but no-one ever responds.
and it's on sky and i can't be bothered to get a skygo account
It happens all the time!!I know I should be happy with it but i just find it hard to deal with being famous sometimes!
you a legend!
I don't know if you heard but I topped the amaonz singles chart a while back! Some said I was taking it by storm!!! (thats not my words, that was a review from a reviewer!!)
can i have an autograph?
(not like that mate lol!! i'm a taken man) Whats your address? i'll be sure to send you one over!! Should i make it out to ryan?! or is it for your nan lol!?!
MARLON: Oh my stars it is Danny Apple
ROSCOE: As contemporary entertainers go he is one of the most contemporary
MARLON: And most entertaining, would thou'st not hasten to add?
ROSCOE: Let's not be too hasty, he does not quite reach the dizzying heights of the contemporary entertainer Denise Welch
MARLON: Very true. It would be most unwise to so rashly make such an assertion: it could unbalance the spirit measures of the universe and we would be at risk from Kappas and furies who would steal us away in the night
ROSCOE: I have taught you well in my lessons
MARLON: Roscoe critical acclaim, critical acclaim Roscoe. Look with your devil eyes
ROSCOE: True that Marlon. But decline is inevitable
DANNY APPLE: inevitable
(MICHAEL PARKINSON, looking down on all this from a dingy hotel room, starts laughing)
SHADOWY FIGURE: Is everything in place?
MICHAEL PARKINSON: All things are in all places. The right things are in the right places. The wrong things can be moved.
SHADOWY FIGURE: They can be tended to
MICHAEL PARKISON: We are all but clams on a planet forgotten by God
(the SHADOWY FIGURE opens his mouth and absorbs the light from the lightbulb, shrouding the two in darkness)
can it be a play?
I can't quite explain my obsession with posting in this fashion every so often
enjoying this ryanwilson dannyapple exchange
Eg. Speedy Haircutz. Supershoppa.
depresses me even more.
(yes I'm a cold hearted bitch).
and after a while of wrestling with it you can just feel the banana inside has turned to mush :(
bananas: making me inexplicably sad today :'(
and knowing that's the case for the entire orange :(
there's this one guy who routinely does all the Sainsbury's and Tescos in Manchester city centre. but then I saw him in Parrs Wood, miles out, at a 24 hour Tesco last night, so he must do some if those too.
There's something so tragic about him and I don't know why. He's a successful guy with a full head of hair who seems to be genuinely happy.
with a small amount of shopping for one in their basket, including maybe one ale that they're going to drink alone.
You can get 4 for a fiver on bottled ales at Tesco. Throw in a meal-for-one chicken jalfrezi with rice and a slection of Indian starters and you have the makings of a night to remember!
Cant really explain why...

All the presents are opened, all the food consumed. And everyone is still just as feckin miserable as they were before
or "party pub" kinda place (like O'Neils) and watching them kinda move around awkwardly to some awful chart song just looking so forlorn and trying to have fun as THIS IS WHAT YOU'RE MEANT TO DO but it's all just so tragic.
Oh God it's the saddest thing on earth.
...especially the people feeding notes into gaming machines
in a small club. Even if the comedians are good I find it truly terrible. And awful. And upsetting. I think I have a problem.
that can barely be described as book shops
at a scene / at the end of the film.
as if they were children with small childish mouths.
nothing here is inexplicable.
just roll with it
or reply explaining every single one.
for some reason think it's thunderously hilarious to have two characters joyfully singing a song together
like in that advert for some horse race or something where two policemen are singing Fast Car and I'm just like err no cause they're just chatting shit
DJs in department stores. Especially when they look well into it. :(
