No problem. It's a very hard movie to find though, unless you know german and order it through ebay.de

ha ha - oh well - i rather like movies

but i commiserate

ver since my cfids, i have been intolerant of reading any fiction - and i was once a great reader

and when my cfids was worse, i couldn't have patience for ANY TV - even my beloved Simpsons - one thing would happen and i try to focus on it and remember it, then something else would happen - all too fast and confusing for me!

I am like that now.. one hour of tv a day, except for tv free saturdays. I used to read al lot too, but that's no longer possible.

I also can't listen to music. I can spend some time on the pc, depending on the day.

When I do read the little I can now I read about nutrition or about cfs/me (we call it that here).

Can I ask what treatments & things you've tried for cfs/me? & wat you've found to helo/hinder?

How able are you atm?

J'adore Hedwig and the Angry Inch, j'ai un piece du tatuoage pour le film sur ma jambe, je suis fanatique...

aussi, j'aime beaucoup Psycho Beach Party, avec ma femme Lauren Abrose du serial "Six Feet Under"

et puis, ils ne sont pas "Indie Films" necessairement, mais les films du realisateur Pedro Almodovar sont tres beaux films, specifiquement "All About My Mother (Todo Sobre Mi Madre) et "Volver"

je crois le démuni de I vu n'importe lequel de ces films, mais de moi ai entendu que "pouce fâché" est merveilleux. et également "six pieds sous" est merveilleux. et je sais que "la partie psychopathe de plage" est GRANDE ! je souhaite regarder plus de films créés par Pedro Almodovar, si tout va bien dans la traduction en anglais, parce que je ne parle pas espagnol.

i would definitely agree with 'Ghost World'-- lol Steve Buscemi! C'mon!

'But I'm A Cheerleader' is another good one, not sure of the date released, i think 2002


and as for the comment above, i've heard soo many good things about 'Hedwig and the angry inch' but i've never seen it!
