You guys have it easy. I have lived in cities that had no cinemas at all. Or worse, all their movies were dubbed.

It appears the Sound Opinions Message Board is down. I loved the board. When the show was on WXRT (before it's NPR jump), it was a vibrant board filled with people arguing about music until they turned blue. As the years went on, less and less people visited. I would still post every now and then, but it's pretty much become a ghost town.

RIP, old friend.

My dog decided that my tv controls and blu ray player controls were tasty treats and chewed them up enough to break them. Now i can't operate both. :(

Can you find an app for your phone that will operate them?

yes, depending on the age of the equipment. My receiver and blu-ray player both have apps that I can download that work as remotes.

I'm so tired all the time right now. For a while, I thought it was moving/the summer, but after a month I backed off some meds as that was the major thing we changed over the summer. Six weeks later and I'm still sleeping/tired pretty much all the time. And then the worst allergy season of probably this decade hit and that just sucked even more out of me.

And I finally just went into the doctor and was like, something is up, this is terrible. I'm tired and sleeping 10-12 hours most nights since basically the end of July. This isn't normal. So we get some blood drawn on Friday. Get a call today that the site that tests it contaminated my sample over the weekend so I had to go draw blood again.

I've now taken off 18 hours of work in the past week and honestly the way I'm feeling now, I'm imagining I'll be taking off even more before the week is over. Even now, I've basically slept until noon today, been up maybe 5 hours, and feel like I could go right back to sleep.

There's so many things I need to do and I'd like to do, but I'm just too tired all the time to do any of it. Sometimes I get home from work and I don't even shower, I just eat and collapse in bed laying there for an hour or two until I fall asleep.

But I keep having enough spurts where I don't feel like this, or a day or two where this isn't the case and I'm like, oh, I can totally handle this, and then there's just this whole week where my body is constantly in a state of fatigue and I feel like I could nap at any time.

Seeing another doctor Thursday so maybe this one will have some more insight, but right now I feel like more often than not all I feel like doing is sleeping and not the I'm depressed kind of sleep but the my whole body feels heavy kind of sleep. Definitely been in worse places but my body has never been this physically exhausted all the time.

I've been tired for a couple years now, but not to the extent you say.  I hope the doctors and labs get their act together and figure something out.

That sucks, Sam. I'm old and I don't have that much fatigue. In fact, I am full of energy most of the time and can't even get to sleep easily because basically I'm just not tired enough to sleep. There has to be something going on with your body. At least you're going to doctors. Many men don't see the doctor and just try to tough it out. Never a good idea...

It's vitamin D deficiency. He says its super low and with supplements will take probably about 6 weeks to feel normal again. He says it's a pretty miserable feeling when you're deficient and boy do I believe it.
