  1. Which MB Members have you met in the flesh?

    Mark Olivarez and Greta (Saxbabe). It's known to most here that Mark and I have become good friends outside the internet, we try to get together once a year or so. I'll be heading to his place Labor Day weekend to help him and his lovely wife celebrate their 10th anniversary. Git did get to go to a Giacchino-conducted concert in Dallas a couple of weeks ago without me though.... I remember there was another JWFanner who went to the Ft. Worth rehearsal that Mark and I met John Williams at in 2010, but for the life of me I can't remember who it was. We didn't actually meet but going by the description I thought I had seen him. Who was it?...
  2. What Is The Last Score You Listened To?

    Williams' Superman is a seminal masterpiece. Ottman's Superman Returns is the definition of mediocrity. There is no comparison.
  3. Happy Star Wars Day!

    Star Wars Day? Has the board been reprogrammed again? A New Hope Hm, guess not.
  4. Video Game Music

    There's a theme in Emperor's Tomb that sounds a lot like the motif from Fast Streets of Shanghai in ToD. I'm not sure if it's a deliberate quote or not but sure sounds like it.
  5. The Official South Park Thread

    Quoted for truth. I've had very, very short stints watching both Simpsons and Family Guy, I quickly tired of both. But I'm always coming back to South Park. This last run was great.
  6. Junior Seau found dead

    AFC Champions, They got killed by the 49ers in the Super Bowl. Er, maybe not the right metaphor. Still, it's crazy how so many members of that team are no longer with us. Football is starting to look like pro wrestling in the high number of young, sudden deaths. They do similar things to their bodies.
  7. I've felt that way about some other Goldsmiths I've picked up over the years (not Gremlins). But recently I listened through my whole collection, and even in the ones I never enjoyed all that much I found new worth in. One or two have even worked their way up to regular listening status. EDIT- Of course I'm right, Jay!
  8. Is the level of message board discussion really proportionate to how much people enjoy the release? I don't think so, personally, and don't see it as a very big deal. Plus, it's human nature to spend more time talking about what we don't have, or what we're looking forward to or expecting, than what we already have in our hands.
  9. I think both of those are just due to the nature that these types of releases aren't really new anymore, they're now the norm. Great music and great releases to be sure, but ones that we've come to expect now.
  10. What Is The Last Score You Listened To?

    Great music indeed. And Twilight Princess is even greater IMO.
  11. Masada is fantastic. The main theme is one of Jerry's best. I still need to pick up The Great Train Robbery and The Sand Pebbles from Intrada.
  12. Video Game Music

    I'm listening to Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb for the first time in a long while. Any fan of Williams' Indy scores needs to get this. It's probably a better Indy score than the last Indy score.
  13. This instantly became one of my favorite Goldsmiths as soon as I listened to it for the first time, I hardly knew anything about it beforehand. I remember posting on FB on my second or third listen, asking just what in the hell Jerry did to those cats to make them make those sounds they made.
  14. Video Game Thread II

    I rented Arkham City for PS3 last fall and played about a quarter of the main story, I really enjoyed it. I had to stop myself and take it back early to save most of the game for when I did buy it. I had the same problem you had with my gifted Steam copy of Fable III. I did eventually get it to work, but it ran so bad on my current emergency cheap replacement video card I put it aside until I upgrade. Love the avatar by the way, Woj.
