    I'm very sorry to hear that! While I may not be able to help much, there's one thing I want to say. You said you've tried to be a good person. From what I know, I definitely think you are one! You're always friendly to everyone here. You're always there to reply to our statuses – and at least to me, it means a lot when people do that. Even if you don't see it yourself, I think you're an amazing person and friend (and I'm sure everyone else here feels the same). Even if you don't think it's likely at the moment, I really hope things get better for you. You definitely deserve it!

    Depression shows no mercy; it wants to tug you more and more. I wish it on nobody, and it's heartbreaking to see it in action. I'm really sorry, and I hope you're getting the help you need. Since I never had depression, it's uncomfortable for me to give any advice. But I think there may be something a little helpful in your battle. Two years ago, a fan suffering from depression asked Rick & Morty co-creator Dan Harmon for advice, and he gave a beautiful response.

    This song and Blink-182's self-titled album are more serious and I really like that. Not that I have anything against their joking side, I just find I relate to the more serious stuff better. I was never as downright zany as those guys. And this song in particular speaks to me as someone who was once pretty darn depressed as a young teenager.

    Though I have a bit more nostalgia for a few of their other songs, I absolutely agree, when all is said and done. Truly, no matter who the artist is, I find that the most sincere works are among their absolute best.

    Almost all of the new writers in the last couple of seasons have done an amazing job already on their debut (and this episode was no exception to that)! Another great episode after a slow start to the second half of the season. I'll be surprised if "Phyllis, no!" doesn't become a meme in the fandom! @Sparklefan1234 It runs in the family.

    I Took My Time, I Hurried Up The Choice Was Mine, I Didn't think Enough There is similar line in Nirvana's "Come as You Are" song. I don't know if the line was just a coincidence or if they are in fact referencing Nirvana in the song. The line in the Nirvana song goes Take your time, hurry up, choice is yours don't be late.

    I agree completely; that is why I always say that sincerity is the key to good music, regardless of subject or premise. I think that many, many people are more capable or writing profound music than they realize, they just never have the interest or drive. That said, I am terribly sorry that you endured those things in your earlier years. I am very glad that you have managed to pull through, though.

    "Adam's Song" is one of my favorite Blink-182 songs.

    I listened to it shortly before, and...wow. These guys do a lot of historical stuff; the only other piece they've done that I had a chance to hear, though, was about the Battle of Britain, their Aces in Exile number.

    That's good advice. Kinda sounds like Harmon's had some personal experience with the subject. @Cash In, I'm really sorry you're dealing with this. I've had severe clinical depression my entire life. (I'm almost 34 now.) Rather than regurgitate a bunch of platitudes about hanging in there because it gets better, I'm going to give you some advice that's helped me a lot. People look at happiness and success the wrong way. We measure ourselves by the success that we think we're supposed to achieve, and we're on an endless quest for a sustainable state of happiness that we think is supposed to exist for successful people. This isn't how reality or happiness works. Traditional measures of success are largely meaningless. Happiness isn't a destination that we can reach. We're all miserable in some sense. Life isn't really about finding happiness; it's about mitigating suffering. Happiness comes from finding moments in time when you can cease to feel like a self in your head, talking to yourself, and simply be, simply exist, and focus your attention on something you enjoy. This sounds like distraction, but quite the contrary--it's a state of being in which pay a higher quality of attention to what you're doing, recognize thoughts as thoughts, and cease to be swept away by the next negative thought that arises. This is basically a rudimentary description of mindfulness. You don't author your thoughts. You don't create them, and you don't have to listen to them. Mindfulness is largely about learning that consciousness in each moment can be enough. I highly recommend reading Sam Harris's Waking Up. It helped me a lot. If you can't afford the book, there's an audio book version of it on youtube here. But I know that this sort of thing is extremely hard to digest when you're in a crisis at rock bottom. For a much easier, short term bit of advice that you can put into practice quickly and easily, and use to hoist yourself out of the lowest pit of misery, try this: Dan Harmon's advice was also really good. Whatever you do, don't beat yourself up for feeling the way that you do. Your feelings aren't your fault. Forgive yourself for your feelings. It's okay to feel them. You have permission to be sad. Allow yourself to feel them, don't fight or push away the feelings, but just let them be, and then let the bad feelings pass away. I wish you the best of luck.

    Glad you liked it. I was introduced to it when it was requested, lol. It indeed does have lyrics. Heck, the original song is just as great:

    I'm glad you introduced me to this song; it's catchy! This definitely sounds like something that had lyrics, judging from the rhythm...

    Thank you very much! I know not many people care about it, but I find it therapeutic nevertheless, especially since a select few people enjoy reading this series as well. Either way, there is no shame in not being able to ramble on and on about music; it only means you have your priorities straight, unlike me.

    This song is much more familiar to me than the previous ones. Not to say it isn't worth another listen anyway – I tend to pay more attention to music than lyrics, so there will certainly be some new sides of it for me to discover (though I've been aware of its general meaning). It's definitely been an interesting series so far, and I'll be sure to read the rest, as well. Even if I might not always have much to say myself.

    One of my favorite episodes in season 9 (especially the second half). I was very happy to see Gabby again – she's such an adorable griffon! And dramatic Rarity is best Rarity, as usual. Gabby's reaction to her apologies was priceless, too! Also, the scene with Gabby and the camera was heartbreaking. Yeah, I guess it isn't that hard to see which character I thought stood out the most here.

    This song + his illusion powers = one ravey king.

    I'll give this episode one "plus", Gabby wasn't nearly as excitable/annoying as she was with her debut appearance in "A Fault in Our Cutie Marks". In my opinion.
