  1. Ripping CDs I bought: OK? No OK?

      Nearly all commercial film DVDs are copy protected. Music DVDs often aren't (or at least that's how it used to be). The difference is, DVD's CSS description has been deemed so weak that cracking it isn't forbidden anymore.   As far as I know, the US were the first country to actually make cracking copy protection even for personal use illegal.   I think companies have pretty much given up on  CD copy protection after several root kit debacles.
  2.   Beginning to wonder if a second London trip is in order this year...
  3. What Is The Last Score You Listened To?

      I don't play the full score/album as often as I should, but I frequently return to cues like Break-In and The Climber. Some of Goldsmith's most hardcore action writing.
  4. Ripping CDs I bought: OK? No OK?

      I remember that my Windows PC at work had trouble reading the CDDA content. But my Linux box just ripped it like any other audio CD. So I didn't actually circumvent anything.
  5. What is the last Television series you watched?

    I don't expect a lot from a second season anyway, but I'll keep watching for a bit at least.
  6. Ripping CDs I bought: OK? No OK?

      Here, too. But only if it doesn't involve breaking any copy protection mechanisms...
  7. Jwfan needs a slogan

  8. Star Trek (2017 TV Series)

    Great news. Pushing Daisies is among my all time favourite TV things.
  9. Soundtracks, Compilations, or other recently purchased Music

    I had the page open for a couple of days before placing my order. I'd added the discs to my cart one day and when I wanted to actually order the next day, the page for the Holmes album didn't have an order link anymore. But the PayPal cart still showed it. I guess I must have gotten one of the very last copies.
  10. Soundtracks, Compilations, or other recently purchased Music

    Couple of weeks ago for my birthday: Desplat: The Grand Budapest Hotel (wonderful!)     From Tadlow's big sale: Gold: Exodus Jarre: Villa Rides! Rozsa: El Cid Rozsa: The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes Tiomkin: The Fall of the Roman Empire Waxman: Taras Bulba     And finally: Desplat: Godzilla
  11. What is the last Television series you watched?

    Finished The X-Files and caught up with the new season. I was going to watch Millennium next, but apparently Netflix has pulled that in the meantime. Back to Gilmore Girls now.   I've also noticed that the second season of Helix has arrived on Netflix.
  12. The 2015 IFMCA Nominations

      His strongest year yet, probably, and just when I had more or less given up on expecting something fresh from him. His scores still tend to seem too spread out in their full (album) length, but all of his entries for 2015 have strong highlights. And the way he manages to support a film with a few well timed modulations (e.g. Pin-Ultimate Experience, if I'm not mixing up the cues) is first rate.
  13. The 2015 IFMCA Nominations

          Part Giacchino in not too shabby Barry mode, part wonderfully propulsive minimalist ostinato stuff (like As the Jurassic World Turns).
  14. What's The Last Book You Read?

    Finished Gaiman's The Ocean at the End of the Lane, which was excellent (part surprisingly brutal, part relateably melancholic) and started Margaret Atwood's Oryx & Crake.   Anyone here on Goodreads (aside from those of you who were added to my friends list automatically through Facebook)?
  15. Do you think JW should compose a symphony for Xylophones?

      That's a great one. Be sure to check out Michael Daugherty's Raise the Roof.
