What do you just fucking love? Therapeutic SSP Thread

things

#1

This is one of the loveliest things I’ve read in a long time. Things are bad and they will get worse, so it’s important to not lose sight of the things that make you feel like things aren’t so bad and can get better:

Here’s a list of THINGS I just fucking love:

Radiohead

Animal Collective, and everything related

Grateful Dead, Phish, Jazz, and other improvisational music

Halloween

Horror films made before 1996

Ghosts

Robots

16 bit video games, particularly on the Sega Megadrive

Sonic The Hedgehog

Charles Dickens

David Lynch

Stanley Kubrick

Wes Anderson

Boards of Canada

Lou Reed

Pixel art

Airbrushed fantasy art

New age dolphiny art

New age music

Nag Champa incense

Almost all types of films

The sort of graphic adventure games that were once referred to as “point and click”

Music festivals - attending, and I have an academic interest in historical festival line-ups

Mix-tapes (and playlists, and mix-CDs)

Prog Rock

Psychedelic Rock

Christmas

There’s many others, but that’ll do for now.

List your own! I chose THINGS, but you can list whatever you like. And criticise other people’s choices if you MUST - maybe doing that is one of the things you love - but please, try to be nice.

Flipside of this: I love it when a child drops their ice cream. It’s the greatest disparity between how bad the event is perceived and how bad it objectively is that is possible (well, maybe just edged out by your favourite sports team losing an important match)
