    MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: FALLOUT (2018) - Film & Score

    Played We Are Never Free randomly. Nice enough track, but it also sounds like it's performed entirely on synths. I listen to a shitload of library music, and that's what this is.
  3. Jaws, Jaws 2, Jurassic Park, The Lost World and E.T for me. I guess I also have Witches of Eastwick, but I never listen to it.

  5. Group tours can be booked via the Royal Albert Hall website here or alternatively individuals can simply book onto one of the scheduled tours. The LSO will almost certainly rehearse in the hall on the day itself (Level 42 are performing the day before), but you would have to guess which time slot to request for the best chance of glimpsing John Williams. I am completely guessing that they might also rehearse earlier in the week at LSO St. Luke's just up the road from the Barbican, but open rehearsals tend to be the preserve of the LSO friends and patrons. I have done the grand tour at the Royal Albert Hall before, not entirely coincidentally on the afternoon when Jurassic Park Live in Concert was being performed in the evening. The tour guide allowed the group into the circle and also into one of the grand tier boxes but with strict instructions to keep noise to a minimum and also not to take any photographs of the orchestra rehearsing. Our group was able to watch Ludwig Wicki rehearse the orchestra for a few minutes and we were allowed to take photographs once the orchestra had gone for a break. I think if anyone has visions of being able to sit in the arena six feet from John Williams and watch him rehearse the LSO for a couple of hours, they are probably going to be disappointed, but hey what do I know? It's worth a try. The tours are interesting anyway, so even if Williams was an initial no show like the dilophosaurus in Jurassic Park, it would not be time or money wasted.
  6. Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Saving Private Ryan, and Schindler’s List.
  7. Which 4 CDs? The 4 different releases of E.T.?

    MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: FALLOUT (2018) - Film & Score

    It's baffle-ing!
  9. Dang it, that was gonna be my answer! You stole my gag!
  10. Today
  11. Horner's Dynamic Range

    Anyone else dig Horner's earring?

    The attack on this thread was not authorized by his government.
  12. What kind of things? Polo sweaters, strands of hair? Dibs on the sweater!
  13. Cherry Pie That'll Kill Ya

    Anyone else dig Horner's earring?

    Fake apologies!
  14. Well I liked the trailer except for the horrendous rendition of JNH theme. Less washed out colorwise even if I'm no fan of Yates' style.
  15. Considering my physical collection of JW music consists of only 4 CDs, my answer is yes.
  16. Nope. Not for sale at any price at the present moment. Although I do have a couple of individual JW things up for sale or giveaway.

    McFarlane does Star Trek. The Orville

    It's OK to have different opinions!

    There are two kings on that poster.
  19. I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want (except an excuse to brag about your JW collection). If you're looking for my JW collection, I can tell you I don't have it for sale... but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career of collecting JW albums. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let this inquiry go now, that will be the end of it. - Freely after the classic Taken
  20. Having listened to this whole thing (and by that I mean starting each track and skipping to the next one halfway through), I think Balfe is of Asian origin, and his name is actually Barfe.

    Here’s a better version of the Comic-Con poster.

    I'm pretty shy and reserved unless you get to know me. I prefer small group of friends rather than a large crowded place. I am more of an observer and listener. Soran: "We call ourselves a race of listeners, we ...listen." Once I am comfortable with someone as I said I come out of my shell and act like myself.

    Why did you have to ruin your perfectly legit post with "sorry"?

    How bored must one be to come up with a topic like this? seriously, get a life. Sorry!

    The Introversion and Anxiety Collective

    Yeah that's me as well I was at a 'party' (very loose term) last night watching a film, and in the inevitable post-film debating, I always felt I had to think carefully about what point I wanted to make and yeah, I felt like I was disrupting the flow of conversation. Whereas put me with one or two other people and you'll find it a bit harder to shut me up. It's a good illustration of how introversion doesn't mean you sit in the corner doing nothing all evening, but that you thrive in a smaller group, and eventually just need to be alone for a bit. I always need to have an hour or two of 'me' time before bed after a gathering, and it's simply because I need to switch off, and not worry about social interactions. Hell no. I go into a minor panic if I realise that I'm going to have to phone someone to resolve something. I went into a shop to get a new SIM the other week (that was trying enough) but then got filled with dread when they said I've have to order it over the phone instead.
