Set the mood or fit the mood?
Do you pick your entertainment of the moment to suit how you're feeling or to create a kind of atmosphere that will help you change how you feel? In other words, when you're sad do you want to listen to sad music, watch sad movies, etc. etc. or do you put on something happy?

It depends on the situation. Sometimes, when I'm sad I like to take advantage of the situation so I'll listen to sad music (I like when this happens and it's raining). In a different situation where I'd like to be happy, I just wach funny videos on Youtube or listen to something motivating (It's my life by Bon Jovi can set my mood to a happy one).

If I'm feeling down or depressed, I wouldn't necessarily listen to music that's sad, but music that has a slower tempo or is really inspirational. To list a few examples: "Hurt" by Christina Aguilera, "Jar of Hearts" by Christina Perri, "Oblivion" by Batille, or even "Breakaway" by Kelly Clarkson.

...Omg, those are all sad and depressing songs. This is not a very good example.

When I'm in a normal or happy mood, I'll probably listen to anything really. Slow, uptempo, sad, happy, anything my heart desires.

My mood really doesn't affect what I watch or read though.

When I'm feeling down, music in general helps to perk me up so I'm really indifferent as to what I listen to as long as it has a beat and I could maybe sing along with it, because singing along cheers me up pretty fast, especially alongside upbeat, lyrical tunes.

Music also helps me get in a better mood too..

When I sad, I would play music or video that might energize me up.

It depends. If I'm down about something but I don't specifically want to get rid of it, I listen to music that's fitting. Same if I'm stressed about something, though I can't use music to get rid of that. Songs like that end up being ruined for me, though. If I'm in a good mood, I listen to anything but songs that were ruined for me.

I usually create my own mood. If I'm sad I will browse through funny pictures and stuff; but most of the time I try and create a pretty chill mood; some Chef Ramsay in the background; a bit of music, and chatting to some good friends online. Sometimes I will draw, tidy the flat, do other random chores.. once in a while, light a candle.. just a mood to be calming, really. :3

Neither. My music is effectively random when I have it playing.
I only watch programmes while eating, since I can't do anything else at the time.

Sometimes when I listen to music I have to scroll through the album and see which one "fits" today the most (how I'm feeling, and the weather actually determines a lot of it).

Other than that, no. I just kind of do whatever.

Depends on how I want to feel. If I'm sad, some of the time I will soak myself in happy things to cheer me up, other times I will do the opposite, and use sad songs/films to help me reflect and draw upon that feeling.

Other times, if I'm neutral, I create a mood to help with thinking or inspiration or whatever thoughts plague me. Depends on everything...

Princess Gummy March 17th, 2013 12:26 PM

Well for me when I'm sad I'll listen to music to cheer me back up again, but I'll listen to some sad songs, then I'll also put on some happy songs. Sometimes when I'm feeling anger I'll play video games to calm me down. When I'm happy I'll either draw or play video games.
