1 uplifting, 1 depressing

A chillingly beautiful video about PostSecret:



and a heartbreaking video about an inventor who gives up a management job and devotes 26 years of his life to the ball game he created:

Which one is uplifting?

The inventor, obviously! He's living his dream!

I thought the music on the postsecret video was way overwrought. (And I like Sia!) Dear YouTubers: "Ken Burns effect" + top-40 ballads != moving cinema.

Maybe if GOOG had Bulletball tables -- available at bulletball games.com -- I'd want to work there too!

I only skimmed the latter video, but the game looks like less fun than the degenerate pool table game called "Sweat". (At the moment I write this, there are apparently no videos of that game found online. So just trust me, it's fun.)

GOOG could buy enough bulletball talbles for their game rooms to set this guy up for life!

The inventor in the latter video took a wrong way to invent, to test, to evaluate and to sell his bulletball.

Could someone please tell me what the music(singer/song) on the postsecret video is?
One very similar song was by Jewel/My Hands are small.

Thanks!

"Breathe Me", by Sia. (so emo!)
