Do any of you find films help with your DP?

One of my favourites is 'Office Space'. You may not have heard of or seen it, but it is absolutely hilarious and a suprisingly relevant forerunner to our 'The Office' series.

Anyway, watch it. There's something 'grounding' about it, for me anyway.

And there's no chance that I have it on my server and could set anyone up with an FTP account to download it. (One at a time mind) No sirree, not me. I love the MPAA and RIAA. I'd never do anything like that.

office space is hilarious! :lol:
The movie that always cheers me up is What Dreams May Come, but I think a lot of people here would absolutely hate it (I acutally doubt anyone else has seen it).

Yeeeeah, so if you could just, go ahead and rip that to DiVX for me and send it to me so I can have a view of it, that'd be great.

Thaaaaaaaaaaaaanks.

:D

I know this is gonna sound kinda funky, but "Batman Begins" has a really well written subplot focusing on fear and facing your fear that is quite efficacious for the purpose of suppressing the symptoms of dp/dr (since many of them are brought on by anxiety and depression).

When I'm seated in the middle of the center row of a theatre with stadium seating, watching an epic blockbuster with my Realviews? on, I feel way more a part of the 'world' on the screen than I do the actual world around me.

It gives me a temporary non-dp/dr'd sensation.

But that always crashes just as soon as the movie is over and I've walked out of the theatre.

Films in general help (while I'm watching them), but big epic films (like LOTR, Star Wars movies) are the most effective.

Loved it (office space that is).

We got the the office here that was aired on our government station but now there is an American version on the comercial stations. They virtually use the same characters and plots, it dosn't seem right. The english version is so much better.

Many people don't like the show these days, and I'm sure it's for the same reason many people get all huffy when you say you like the Beatles because "it's so popular it became silly".....but...I have always sat down and watched an episode of M*A*S*H. Why?

When I was young, about around the time when my parents were getting a divorce, my father was very, very stressed at the time. Life was pretty hectic and fairly hard to hold down for us. The only consistency I felt, night after night, was sitting down with him - often falling asleep on our living room sofa - watching M*A*S*H. I don't even really follow the story lines so much anymore as they've become so well known to me, but....odd or not....M*A*S*H saved me many times....maybe in more ways than one.

Apart from that, I absolutely LOVE the Simpsons. Dry humor rocks.
