    Please help me find this movie.

    Easiest way to describe it is the poster.   Four guys in lawn chairs sitting in the middle of a road.   About 1995, set in rural west Texas, sort of an art house coming of age tale.   Best buddies, about to graduate HS and leave, or not leave, their tiny home town.   Any idea...

    QUAD is back/ How do I get a DVD onto ITunes?

    Region Free DVD player needed.

    Just ordered a copy of "Bliss" (1985) that I won't be able to play. I have a history of this, formats are so, fleeting.
