A legend passes!

Hymn To The Falled played on Remembrance Day

JW's awe inspiring piece was played life during the Remembrance Day ceremony in Amsterdam today, 70 years after The Netherlands was liberated.

Deeply impressive

Music for MRI

04 May 2015 - 06:21 PM

I'm having an MRI scan later this week. I was told that I'm allowed to bring a CD to listen to during the procedure. Which will take about half an hour.

Any suggestions?

I had considered the Jaws OST, but that might be a bit too energetic, considering i have to remain motionless during the procedure.

The Avengers: Age of Ultron discussion thread (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

Since I'll be seeing this at midnight I thought I better set this thread up.

 

Just to be clear, people who want to see the film without any spoilers should avoid this thread.


The morality of sharing news

21 April 2015 - 09:03 AM

A large part of the appeal of a site like JWfan is that it allows people to have access to inside news gathered by people from all over the world. Some from enthusiastic fans, some from industry professionals.

A small portion  of this news comes from an industry professional telling a friend. Often with a "don't tell anyone"or "keep this to yourself" addendum imposed upon it. However, trust is a fickle thing, and it happens that suck little scoops do actually get passed around and end up on sites like this.

 

What is the morality of this though?

Surely the person who passed the info in the first place is acting dubious in one sense. Though one might argue that finding out tidbits of important soundtrack related news justifies such actions.

My own personal code is that if I'm told something in confidence and am then asked not to share it I uphold that pledge.

 

However if such tidbits pf news are passed around further along the chain, then what?

If you receive a juicy bit of news from a friend who got it from a friend who got it from a friend who heard it from an industry professional, then the question of morality become less clear.

 

Is it morally justified to share such news if you were not told to keep it under wraps?

Is it more or less acceptable to share it on an open forum or keep it slightly more discrete by using closed channels like private message systems, or closed groups?
