    I don't think I'll add to this. My sister, who lived this kind of stuff, was killed in an ATV accident this afternoon. Please, everyone else continue. I need escapist suggestions.

    I'm sorry to hear about your sister's death.

    I want you to know that I lost my brother tragically as well, so if you ever want to discuss it please don't hesitate - pm me.

    As far as distraction - I don't know what your hobbies are or how old you are but I can tell you that when my brother passed I opened an imdb account on the suggestion of a professor in my life at the time, and I proceeded to watch hundreds of films and rate them and discuss them on that account. Unfortunately they've since done away with their chat based forums, but you can still rate and keep track of films on there (and I'm sure there are other platforms out there to discuss them). I've rated over 4,000 films since I created the account. I don't know if that's something that would work for you but it's a suggestion - and it somewhat worked for me as a distraction.

    Again, don't hesitate to pm me.

    Also mentioned my a member of my dissertation reading circle. She wondered whether there was a book, and I forgot to look it up.

    As an aside, my sister was born about a week before the 1975 Series, and it took me a few games before I realized why Denny Doyle looked so familiar; he looked just like her newborn picture.

    Thanks.


    btw, I was immersed in dissertation work before, and I'm jumping back in tomorrow. I'll probably cope by making rude comments on the politics board, too.

    I am very sorry for this news. I can't say the right words to make you feel any better but to know many people will be there to help you get through this tragedy.

    Oh my....that is terrible. So sorry to hear this, Marc.

    I’ll do my best for suggestions:

    The Thing (Kurt Russell version)
    Army of Darkness (this one is more of a comedy)
    Ginger Snaps
    Chopping Mall (again, comedy)
    Shaun of the Dead
    What would you say.....ya do here?

    The Roddy McDowell painting story? I found that to be incredibly frightening!
