thanks, I get the "not available in your country" message.

I'm gonna have to wait it out, which is no problem

It's unclear if it'll ever get a European release. It's also unclear if it's popular enough for someone to bother ripping it. :neutral:

I'm prettty sure, that when Dave says it'll be out "world wide" he means Europe will get it too. But maybe you're right...hopefully not though

So I just got around to watching this (finished no more than 10 minutes ago) and I thought it was pretty well done for the most part.

Although you could tell that there was next to no budget for the thing because a lot of it came across are cheaply done as it had the look if a high school project for an audio/video class than something that was supposed to be professionally done.

For some reason that friend of Dave's felt like people would actually care about his thoughts and opinions. He could have been 100% left out and people wouldn't miss a thing. He added nothing to the story other than to say that he was Dave's friend. Not being a Dave "fan" that follows things that he does outside of the Jane's stuff (he blocked me on Twitter so I can't follow him there :lol: ) but what does that Todd guy actually do besides being Dave's jock sniffer?

Even though the image kind of looked cool at the end, the Dave/Mom/blood painting thing was :eyes: to me. Maybe if I 12 and just discovered Bauhaus and had my first real argument with one of my parents, I might have thought watching it be made was cool. But it just came across as silly watching Dave stand around and then stare up at the picture. But like I said, I thought it did look cool when it was done.

That said, I give it 4 out of 5 stars.

Todd is the dude who has taken Dave to rehab to keep him from dying. He's seen him spiral out of control. He's seen the effect that this event has had on a human being that he is close to. I kind of understand why his thoughts were included.

How much of our personalities are not known by our family members, but ARE known to our closest friends?

Ask your parents to write your obituary: "Loved his friends, family, and snowboarding. Was an avid golfer. Loved his dog Sonny."

It'll just be a bunch of generalized bullshit they gathered from the hour they see you ever month, or the pictures you post. It's not the real every day stuff that happens in your life.

Now ask your best friend to write one: "Struggled with depression but was always there at 4am if you needed him. Once gave me his last 10 dollars after I lost my wallet and couldn't afford gas to get to work. Was the funniest guy in the room after 3 pitchers of beer"

I wouldn't want to hear Dave's dad's or his brothers thoughts on him, because those people don't see the real him. His best friend though... sees everything.
