I don't really feel the blues right now.

Everything is going pretty good, which is why it's sometimes hard to write a good ol' traditional blues song. Really, nothing at this moment in time is really going wrong.
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

even if your not in a "blue" place yourself at the time there is so much pain and suffering in other peoples lives that you can empathize with and partially relate to that on a human level.
I think that's why the best blues artists have such a wide appeal - they can relate to the suffering of other people and by doing so connect with them.

Maybe later... I'm too tired at the moment. Plus I don't remember half the shit I did that night. Apparently, I punched my friend in the face about 4 or 5 times really hard... yet I have no recall of that at all.

well, I have clinical depression, so... everything is the Blues

not really though, it's under control

Women, being broke, pretty much the usual suspects, you know

but I found a job, now it's just them Wimmen that make me blue I guess

here is a story, a story so epic I had to make a blog for it

note: this is not me, I am not that crazy, I mean, I am a little crazy, but not like this


I had a job before this, I had a job before this. Ultimately it was that job that drove me into this. I worked at an aquarium, an aquarium with lots of money from the government so it was huge!

I was a Clean and Scrub man, we called each other in the C&S union. I scrubbed the inside of the killer whale tank. And after a while the boys in the C&S — the Clean and Scrub — we just sorta made it one word.

The killerwhaletank. The killerwhaletank, unh, the killerwhaletank, unh. I’m going into the killerwhaletank.

I got along with these two big beasts so well it was like they knew me. They looked at me with their hundred year-old eyes and it was like they knew me. I’d put on my scuba gear, my mask, my regulator and I’d fall into the tank with nary a sound, maybe a “ffflk”, and then I was underwater.

Sometimes I’d jump out, right in front of the window. When people are expecting a killer whale and they see a human they get spooked! Spooked. Anyways I’d do that.

But I was in the water this particular day, unbeknowst to me, Shamu and Bartholomew, their relationship had gone stale. Seems I was going in there so much, and I was looking so good, Shamu took a shining to me.

And they’re so smart those things you know. They’ve got all these human emotions. Love, lust, green-hundred-year-old-eyed jealousy! Bartholomew… was livid! Unbeknownst to me, I can’t hear a goddamn thing underwater!

He came up, he was bumping against me a lot. That stale, killer whale, bumping up against someone so pale and frail. How was I supposed to know the killer whale relationship had gone stale? Welllll…

He brushes up to me a couple times, his skin’s like sandpaper. I say, “Hey man, Bartholomew, what’s up? What’s goin’ on big fella? What is it? What is it? I don’t want to steal your mommy and I sure don’t want to take the place of your daddy. I only wanna be your friend.”

And he circled around, I thought we were all patched up and I was scrubbing and he took my, he came and he, he came and he, he ripped, he ripped my left arm off. I mean, the killer whale, they’re beasts of the deep, they’re quite docile and friendly in captivity but somewhere along the line, thousands of years of breeding just snapped and he took my left arm off, man. He took my left arm, my ****ing left arm.

“What is it Bartholomew?”

I spoke to him in a language he could understand as I came back! Beeoo, bwoo, bwoop, beeoo!

I literally hated them to no end, because I didn't like Gord Downie's voice, but it grew on me

What makes me "feel" the blues would be, alcohol dependancy, the opposite gender, family issues, other stuff like this.
If I struggle I can just think "My Dad's my drinking buddy and I haven't spoken to my sister, whom I live with, in a year."
