I've said it before: listening to sad music makes me feel happy. As twisted as it sounds, dwelling on disaster and heartbreak and tragedy uplifts my soul and fills me with joy. It's been a long time since I changed that play list, so I'm updating my soundtrack for sitting in the dark with teddy bears and knives. Links to free MP3 downloads included; wallow at your own risk.

To too much space again.
