    Cheers a lot, added all to my to-watch list! You seem to have an excellent cinematic taste for our age! Have you seen any Tarkovsky?
    He's the guy who made Stalker right? Not yet but I was planning to watch. Especially after I watched the Battleship Potemkin I decided to watch more russian cinema . I also wanted to watch that documentary film which was ranked the best of all time. Which one of his films is the best?

    Are you finding it interesting intellectually though? If you maintain a focus on your studies that can help ground you - and, indeed, if you go along to some of the subject-specific societies, it can give you a good ice-breaker with new people.

    Yes, that's the fella. You most definitely should! He is up there along with people such as Bergman and Fellini. His best movies are Stalker, The Mirror and Andrei Rublev - in no particular order. Stalker is mainly philosophical, The Mirror is about human experience and memories, and Andrei Rublev is historical and explores religion. All of them are astonishingly beautiful and poetic.

    I read about porn addiction and the effects of pornography yesterday. I stopped watching porn since yesterday and I hope I can stay porn free. I think porn makes people not want to leave their room and unwilling to form a relationship but I just started so I have to wait for a few months and see if it works. . So you mean you never watch porn? Even when you don't have a sex partner?
    Check out this youtube video. It'll help you give it up.

    Thank you. It was quite interesting. It is somehow that people who watch porn are responsible for there being porn stars, living such lives of humiliation and social death. We create the demand and so long as there's demand there's supply.

    I haven't seen any porn since Saturday and I hope I can keep up. It is a touch difficult but not too difficult. I just tend to think about watching porn when I'm alone and bored in my room but it's not like I'm craving.

    So yea, I left my dear-old, beautiful, diverse and magnificent London in September to come to Scotland (Edinburgh) and I have no friends. I have literally nobody to go out with or to to at least talk to. When I go to lectures everyone's around them mates talking and laughing and I pass by them. I spend Fridays watching films or reading newspapers like my dead granpa. I hate life, I hate living, I hate this laptop that takes all my time, I hate watching porn all the ****ing time. Anyone else in the same situation?
    Hi man. How are you doing now? I was talking with a friend of mine about Jean-Luc Godard and that, strangely enough, reminded me of you!
