By the time that you'd found your way to Muse, you would probably have read enough to know that I love arts. "Comedian" might be the world of the month for me, for January. Aside from Maurizio Cattelan, the universe bought me stand-ups recently, and though I might have watched a couple on Netflix before, I never thought I'll do a spree, from Sloss to Jeong to John and so forth. I eventually landed on Bo Burnham, where Make Happy seems to appeal to me from self-deprecating humor. And boy, it did. I saw original music, but I didn't know stand-up could be such a musical spectacle, and I enjoyed all of it.
As much as I fell in love, there are several elements of depression that I might have felt, which lead me to later do a short Google research. I continued my short binge on "what" later one, and also went to check out several of his songs.
It was morbidly relatable, as I am having esteem issues. It came a long way, I'd come a long way to being happy, and I worked hard for it. But as much as I'd wish to earn it, my decaying self worth won't let me. Funny it is after I got off pills, I want to return to the society, I want to make the world a better place, I want to create more mental health awareness. And I became a listener, a company, everything that I wish I'd got, but I didn't.
And boy did that hit me. Netflix probably opened me up to the world of comedy and I guess it also became my list of interest overtime, alongside with art performances, theatres and musical.
P.S. Little did I know he also directed one of my favorite coming of age film, "Eight Grades", in 2018. So, Thank you for leading me back to Bo Universe.
