Hopelessness, nothingness, loneliness are among the many themes I Cut People takes on in Miserable Day. Constant references to suicide and the absurdity of life overflow into a barrage of fierce polemics. Miserable Day is a testimony to how we go about our lives with nothing to lose, nothing to fear, and nothing to expect when we die. Though mostly dark, it still maintains a sense humor throughout, adding a sliver of light to its bleak convictions. Sit back, take your medication, and listen.
“The certain prospect of death could sweeten every life with a precious and fragrant drop of levity; and now you strange apothecary souls have turned it into an ill-tasting drop of poison that makes the whole of life repulsive.” – Friedrich Nietzsche
“A first sign of the beginning of understanding is the wish to die.” – Franz Kafka
