    Alcoholism

    There is no reasonable comparison between cigarettes and heroin, it is nonsensical. On the sobriety front, my wife is out of town which means that I have an opportunity to use without anyone in my family knowing about it. It is not too much of a challenge and there are still barriers built into my lifestyle like working a job with random drug testing etc. but it reminds me of how much harder it was to resist the urge to use in the beginning and during the first few years. With many years clean it is easy to judge others and diminish in perception the challenges and hazards associated with narcotics, I am kind of happy to have a reminder, however mild, of what the struggle is really like. I have other family coming into town soon so the window will close by the weekend anyway.

    Just dropped off the wife at the airport, trying to figure out what to do with my time.

    What are you doing RIGHT NOW.

    Every 3-5 years one of my big toe nails will go rouge generally requiring a minor surgery, usually the recovery is smooth but I am suffering from a minor infection this time. The points the doctor had received for being short and stacked have been wiped out by complications post procedure. It looks like the best time to visit Pittsburgh is a little later in the year but I am going next weekend for other reasons. I am open to suggestions for neighborhoods to stay in and things to do, stay will be from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon with a matinee performance at the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra on Sunday being the only thing I have locked in so far.

    SONGS in SCENES

    Right, out of the three you posted only "stuck in the middle" would hit that hard for me, further if If it is not a unique piece the waters get muddy pretty quick. It is too challenging whereas to find interesting music associated with film is a pretty reasonable thing to do. However, I will respect your vision as it is your thread after all.

    So the content must resonate in the culture with such clarity that the association is presumed? That seems like an extraordinary and arbitrary bar to meet.

    These Danes have slick production and a nice little playlist of pop soundtrack, I cringe a little when I see orchestras doing starwars or lord of the rings and whatnot because it just comes off as pandering and tacky but they seem to do it well and with a chick composer too which you never see.

    I reject the premise and move to open the thread to all movie, television and theater music and tracks, including musicals and comercials.

    Alcoholism

    I dunno that I would call it food addiction but eating habits can change for sure. I never or rarely had dessert after dinner when I was drinking because I went back to drinking in earnest after dinner, now I have dessert just about every night, and have for pretty much the past decade. In the first couple years there was also a sense of entitlement to indulgence, I can eat whatever I want because I am sober type thinking but that gave way for me pretty quick. The long distance run of being sober involves all kinds of encounters with compulsive behavior, overeating, procrastinating, spending, working, fucking whatever. Controlling and overcoming compulsion and making positive choices small and large is the name of the game but it can be hard to see and harder to do for us because of our muscle memory for going the other direction.

    GAME: True or False

    False, we don't do inspirational bulletins. TPBM speaks with strong regional accent and word choices.
