Post Pink Floyd The Wall
Any fans?

I've watched the film at least 50 times now and probably under the influence of everything I've ever been under the influence of. But for the last few decades, just booze.

I'm watching the bonus features of the DVD (again) right now and for some reason, thought, what the fuck, let's start a thread on the only forum I ever go on anywhere on the Internet these days.

Never liked it, but then I'm not a fan of the album either.

I watched it a lot when I was younger, and for all it’s faults, I still enjoyed. I always felt it started to run out of steam maybe 2/3rds in. Haven’t watched it in a decade maybe though, if not longer. Much like the album, I related to it far more as a teenager than I do as an adult (maybe because I am not a rock star?).

I never saw it as being about a rock star (even thought it is). I related to it from the very beginning when I was just a kid and my parents had divorced.

It became frighteningly relatable when I was in my 20's and went through my own divorce.

But besides all that plus the being bullied by my peers in school and the many other ways to make the album about yourself, I found that the meaning just keeps growing as you grow. For example, as I got older I found it to be more about empathy and caring about other people and it even made me cry a bunch of times.

Even Roger Waters attempted to re-interpret it with his politically charged stage show some years back. Y'know, I think about Sid Barret's life and how upset Roger, Rick, Nick, and Dave were about his descent and I think this album is even more relevant today than ever.

I was being a bit facetious with the rock star comment. I just don't really relate to it as an adult, apart from maybe a bit of general alienation with society. It's just in a category of culture that I cherished as a teenager, but not so much these days - much like 'Catcher in the Rye'.
