There was a post I was getting ready to reply to earlier and I got called away for something here at work, I’m standing in an electrical room while trying to deal with an irate tenant who believes he’s paying for another tenant’s power bill and I’m thinking “Sh*t….what was I going to say in that reply….which thread was it?” :rofl

I HEAR YA!

We can hug it out later after the drum circle. It's OKAY to cry, man.

Man, I’m probably the last dude that needs to be told it’s ok to cry. I’m an empath and it’s taken a LONG time to understand what that means and how to handle it. I get overwhelmed by happiness and I’m grateful it works that way instead of negativity or anger. I definitely feel it when the vibe of a person or room is negative, but it doesn’t have as intense of an effect on me, or at least I learned how to not let it.

If I watch America’s Got Talent and see some not-so-confident person kill it onstage and the audience goes nuts, I’ll cry like a b*tch. Any time an underdog who is great at what they do gets recognized it can happen. Or concerts when the audience is REALLY excited….man, I’ve been to some shows where I just can’t stop tearing up the whole show. I’ve had it happen at shows I’ve been playing, especially in the mid 00’s when my former band was seemingly on it’s way to ‘making it’ and our audiences were extremely receptive of us. I’m probably the only dude to cry tears of happiness over causing a mosh pit, but whatever, I’m grateful for it.

It can be embarrassing around people who don’t know me, but I’ll never be bummed out that positivity has such a profound effect on me.

Wow. I am touched by reading this. <--- For reals. Absolutely no sarcasm

I would have said until reading that, that I'm also an empath; but I have never experienced "cry tears of happiness over causing a mosh pit". That's a whole 'nother level. I'd never even imagined that such a thing could happen.

The mosh pit thing was more the result of the audience giving us their seal of approval. That band ‘took off’ really fast and it was a really exciting time. South Florida has a lot of roots in death metal and I’ve seen some pretty brutal audiences that did the folded arms thing quite a bit, so when those same audiences started going apesh*t when we played it let us know we were doing something right, even though we were a prog-metal band that wasn’t screaming in every song.

Everything, during that period, was just going right for us and I don’t think there was anyone in the band or knew of us that didn’t believe we were going to ‘make it’. There was so much excitement surrounding everything we did, from the writing sessions to the shows and when I’d catch one of these little signs that indicated we were on the right path I’d get choked up. The first time I got recognized in public, first time I signed an autograph, first time we got paid more than free beer, first time an A&R guy approached us….all those moments had me choking up.

It’s like my body/brain goes into autopilot; “YOU’RE GRATEFUL AND YOU CAN’T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT, b*tch! HAVE SOME TEARS!” :rofl

Trust me..... it'll get better/worse as you grow older. I get the FEELZ all the damn time now. :ROFLMAO:
:ROFLMAO:

I had to take a break from us being a Foster for rescue dogs. Did it for roughly 10 years, and
the last one broke me in all the right ways. She's in great place now..... but I bawled when she
came home with us and bawled more when we took her to meet her forever home/mom.

Oh, and I want to do a spoof/satire of those gut-wrenching AGT/Voice segments, where it is a
total setup and the sappy and melodramatic music is just tugging the water out of your eyes.

I can totally see SNL doing a satirical take on all of that. That would be my revenge for pulling
on my heartstrings like that so carelessly. :lol

So that’s what you call it… an “empath”. It’s so weird… I can watch these insanely scary and horrifying thrillers/horror movies and awful documentaries about murder and crime and whatnot. And find it gripping and touching.

But I can’t watch a damn Netflix kids movie without breaking out in tears each 15 minutes… these damn animated heart warming movies are killing me :ROFLMAO: and if it’s not tears it’s this chunk of thing in the throat that sometimes hurts when it like swells up and I’m on the edge of cry. This usually happens when there’s a bittersweet happy cute moment with some nice dramatic music… I’m getting all teared up and my kids just sit there and like “woah that’s a happy moment”…and I can’t talk because they’ll notice on my voice that chunk in my throat.. my voice kinda go from normal dad voice to bright and stuttery:LOL:

Thought about that a lot.. I think the geniuses at dreamworks, Disney, Pixar and whatnot know exactly wich combination of visuals, situation and music to use to get to my sensitive dude heart… I think it’s much about the drama music that gets me.

As long as they are killing people in film; I'm great. The minute a turtle might get a bruised spot on it's shell; I'm f*****g out of there :mad:
