Sometimes it's better to light a flamethrower than curse the darkness

I am being nibbled to death by ducks and my coping mechanisms tonight include comfort food and various media-ish things loosely organized around the quote from Terry Pratchett's Men at Arms in the subject line, some of which I have admittedly linked here before, but hey:

"Lantern," Josh Ritter.

Tell me what's the point of light
That you have to strike a match to find?

So throw away those lamentations
We both know them all too well
If there's a book of jubilations
We'll have to write it for ourselves
So come and lie beside me darling
And let's write it while we still got time

"Seven Nation Army," a multi-fandom vid by charmax.

Lighting a flamethrower . . . against robot armies of DOOM.

"I Shall Be Free," a vid of The Shawshank Redemption, also by charmax.

One of my staple comfort stories, to a really great song by Kid Beyond.

And now I have to bundle up and walk the dog. Further variations on the theme welcomed.
