I think crying can sometimes let out a lot of loaded up tension. It's like a stress reliever. It's can let a whole load of crap from your shoulders.

Absolutely, I have found it can make me feel elated sometimes but I have yet to really blub, I just well up and get a bit throat-lumpy.

Tell you what I do hate, gaming music like Final Fantasy on you tube. Full of comments like 'crying so hard now'. What a load of bullshit. Nothing wrong with a piece of music stirring up the emotions of course but they way they post it like it's cool.

Cried when my family dog died last year, cried when auntie died in 2003/4 time. Am quite sensitive but don't cry much - guess I have welled up a couple of times in films but really rare, a couple of times in Lost definitely! I also remember watching Termainator 2 when I was 12/13, I was gutted by what happens at the end and a tear or two rolled down my cheek, in fact it still gets to me!

Yeah, I cred at T2... About how terrible it was compared to the first, but that's another story :wink:

Last time was maybe a few years ago when I was in a relationship I was really enjoying and she suddenly ended it out of the blue one evening. I was fine for a bit but in the next few days it caught up to me. I kept it mostly to myself but it was flippin' hard since I work at the same place as her and I had the work the very next day so it was pretty much impossible to escape from.

Strangely enough I never cry at funerals or family deaths though, even if it's a terrible loss of which there have been several over the last few years.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

i get a tad emotional whilst watching films ive found out recently, bizarrely at the end of cars and toy story 3 - only since having kids though. perhaps their constant crying has unlocked a random cry valve in my brainal pipes a few years ago. i never cried at their births, or any funerals though.

Ugh, yes. I hate all that FF 'Titanic'-style hullabaloo, 'tis soooooooo fake, it's always put me off since the SNES games, though I did finish VII and VIII. It's women that make me cry mainly, either when I'm with 'em or without 'em, and jazz seems to represent the emotions when you're in those states, at least for me.

THIS track is headf*cker for me, dependent on where I'm at, it'll either take me high or make me cry:

PS: To many, it'll sound like late-70s lift music! :oops:

Yeah, that just sounds like 70s porn to me but then again I never did get Jazz :oops:
