    We play music ourselves and even recorded two albums as "Bald Angels" (with a little help from a few friends), "The Goat and the Donkey" and "It's a Dog's Life", but with 500 copies each only (which we sold at our restaurant). Friede played drums and percussion instruments and sang lead vocals, I played keyboards (mostly piano) and sang some harmony vocals. The music was a bit strange; lots of experiments. with two adaptions from classical music (Franz Schubert's "Erlkönig" and Hugo Wolf's "Feuerreiter".

    The cover pictures were done by a befriended artist, and the cover of the second album was very provocative, showing us in the nude on all 4s led through the city on leashes by another woman.

    Interesting. I only write music and let the computer do the playing.

    You are both young women. This affected my ex in her 20s but her hair returned. It then affected her in her 40s, never to return. She had stains on her scalp from years of dyeing her hair. She would not have been able to pull off the 'no scarf' look. I always felt a little guilty about what occurred. When we met, she had a full head of hair. As our relationship evolved and we moved in together, she started taking the pill and that's when her hair started falling out in clumps. She panicked and tried to hide it from me for a while. She was always wearing scarves or bandannas; even to bed. Eventually she explained it all to me. It wasn't pretty at first but eventually all the hair fell out, I got used to it, and our relationship lasted a good 7 or 8 years beyond that; until other issues ultimately split us up.

    What a phenomenal movie. Saw it years ago. Peter Lorre was immense as the killer. I believe we have some old movie fans on this site, too.

Our musical tastes are quite similar, My favorite movie is "M - Eine Stadt sucht einen Mörder" by Fritz Lang, my favorite book is "Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell" by Susanna Clarke, and my favorite painting is "the Garden of Earthly Delights" by Hieronymus Bosch.

    I have alopecia universalis as well; Jean and I met in a self-help group
    I think last week I saw some people performing music inspired by The garden of earthly delights. There were two instruments build, that can also be seen on the painting. The music was based on the music that can be seen on the painting.


    Alas I can't find a link to the performance and the only websites I found some information about the piece are in Dutch.
