    The John Williams Health Issues Thread

    Excellent development, I seriously hope the JeHahdi terrorist sees the FSM thread and posts an extremely angry bitchfit about how awful he thinks JWFan is. He only ever posts and interjects in threads so he can attack other people instead of actually discussing topics, but since he sucks up and kisses the boils on the asses of Kendall and Sones, he won't ever get banned for his shitty behavior regardless of how many times he breaks the "be nice to each other" rule like he's a William Devane trope. Respect should be earned from your peers, not granted to you solely because of how much you bitch about everyone else and ragequit like Jeremy Irons at the end of the Dungeons and Dragons movie, and he has never earned the respect of anyone with a functioning intelligence quotient in their brain (like me! and pretty much everyone here at JWFan). His constant anger at everyone and everything should have gotten him banned years ago so he could finally turn off the computer, go outside, get a life, and the internet would no longer be polluted with his toxic presence, and yet FSM keeps enabling him. He needs to erase his self-serving inscription from the guest book at the Anne Frank museum, as well as issue a long overdue apology to Christian Clemmensen for attacking his family. He is probably the top-ignored FSM poster at this point: http://filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=65959&forumID=1&archive=0 http://www.filmtracks.com/scoreboard/index.cgi?read=50123 http://www.filmtracks.com/scoreboard/index.cgi?read=68548 http://www.filmtracks.com/scoreboard/index.cgi?read=84662 http://www.filmtracks.com/scoreboard/index.cgi?read=117480 I think it's rather sad and pitiful that he lashes out this way at everybody, but I think it's mostly a case of sexual frustration on his part. He can't get any girls to bang him (despite how much he likes to talk about getting some; he's so insecure with his masculinity his buddies will reject him if they know the truth that he never lost his virginity), precisely because he lives on Doritos alone in an apartment with stacks of CDs to the ceiling, so he has masturbation jackoff sessions whenever a new Joe Kraemer CD comes out (which isn't very frequently). With MI: Rogue Nation released though, he'll have another title coming to his door and once again he can stick his tiny penis into the hole of the CD, thrust back and forth and back and forth, and explode his seminal fluid while wearing a fursuit and yiffing his way to kingdom come. The inevitable day will come when Gillian Anderson passes away though and he will get so angry he'll burst the blood vessel in his temple that always bursts open and take it out on the world yet again, as he usually does. And then he'll just fantasize about having (but he'll never get any) sex with Cvalda / MKRUltra instead, as his backup X-Files go to female. One of these days he's going to have a stroke from being so angry and I worry that he won't seek proper medical attention and therapy treatment before it's too late. By the way Thor, he mentioned on his Tweeter thing once (he's posting on there every single day, whoring himself out, crying for attention) that he would punch you in the face if he ever saw you in person. I have a screencap of it but it's at home and I'm at work right now; I think you should file harassment charges against him.

    My Very First FSM topic!

    I have not read any of the replies in this thread, nor do I feel like doing so and potentially responding to them. This is in response to KK at FSM, however, as the thread was locked before I could hit "submit post": Falsely accusing someone of being a pedo/molester/rapist/whatever is NOT funny. Making a joke about it is even worse. End of discussion. What? Going in-depth and detailed about why I like something is a bad thing? You mean to tell me that message boards aren't for lengthy, insightful posts? It's easier (and faster) to copy-and-paste other opinions that I agree with instead of writing my own, especially regarding a taboo subject that everyone is so quick to jump to negative conclusions at. And honestly, I have much better things to be doing than trying to show people whom I've never met nor whom I would ever care about conversing with otherwise why I like something. I never initiated the discussion about bronies over there. And yet, somehow, this is what you interpreted from all of my posts. I'm not about forcing people to watch it, I'm about making people not post why it's bad or why the fandom is bad when they've obviously never watched it nor interacted with the fandom for any considerable amount of time. You can't say why you don't like something when you haven't even tried it out. And I'm neither insecure nor ashamed. But okay. It would be nice if he did, but I'm not expecting him to, just as I'm not expecting everyone else who's wronged me in the past to apologize. Bear in mind that I said "accessory to cyber bullying" in the other thread, not actual cyber bullying. Meaning he was directly involved but remained neutral, and in my mind remaining neutral means you side with the bully by default. I'll give you points for explaining why I'm an ass while being decent about it though, KK. That's respectable in my book. But "pedo" and "sexual predator" are still very serious remarks and not something I take lightly.
  5. Well, so much for that. Also, what's a "defficienty"?
  6. Ooo! The things one can learn when they're being educated about something. What a genial idea! This entire post: Pot, calling the kettle black. You know, it really says something about your character when even LeHah calls you out on being a bigot. Congratulations, you just went full retard. My friends agree with me, as evidenced by my recent Facebook post, and the fact that even the board administrator is willing to back you up and not ban you for your excessive display of whiny childish entitlement is equally sad. But since you said you're dropping it, I guess I'll drop it too. Have fun eating cheetos in your mom's basement while masturbating to porn of Qui-Gon anal fucking young Anakin Skywalker, you sick pedo. Star Wars is for faggots.
  7. Good luck with that! People who develop a sort of fetischistic obession with what, as far as I'm concerned, is a TV show aimed at girls under the age of 10 are either creepy or have suffered a stunted emotional development and are in many ways immature. Much like Michael Jackson never grew up because of physical and mental abuse suffered as a child. If I were to meet this Basil would probably deduce in what catagory he falls in mere minutes. As it stands, my judgement remains open. Though sexual predators are usually less eager to share, having a notion that what they are doing is wrong. Something our specimen here seems to lack. If I were a brony, i certainly would not admit it on an open forum. Hell i'd admit to jacking off to tranny porn before doing that! Wow, Stefan. It's like you skipped past reading all of my prior posts here so that you could validate your own lack of intelligence a third time. You might as well have admitted to being a Republican right-wing conformist, an entity that is far worse than being a brony (or transgendered, since you brought it up, as your usage of the word "tranny" (considered a defamatory slur by trans rights activists) proves you a member of the United States of Assholes™ by heart). I think you meant to say "my judgement remains closed", as you obviously didn't bother to read any of the articles or listen to any of the music clips that I posted previously; you wouldn't be calling me creepy and a "sexual predator" (???) or my interest a "fetishistic obsession" had you actually done so. It's not a TV show aimed at girls under the age of 10, it's aimed at everyone. I even dug out proof from one of the articles that you didn't bother reading: Here's another quote from Lauren Faust: Oh look, I found even more evidence that a good show doesn't make me creepy, stunted, immature, or a sexual predator. Hell, why not just read this entire article that proves all of your points wrong while we're at it? But I suppose it's too much to ask of some deadbeat American at your pitiful IQ level to take the time to read more than two paragraphs of content proving why watching MLP isn't wrong, so I fully expect you to keep spinning this debate to make *me* the bad guy based solely on your own stupidity. (also: your calling me "immature" yet your inability to see the bigotry in your own post, and calling me a "specimen" as if I'm somehow less valid of a human being just because you deem me as such. Totally not right-wing Republican behavior in action here.) I've shown you my evidence and proof that MLP:FiM is a great show (again... because the first time didn't get through), so if you want to win this argument I expect you to provide YOUR evidence and proof that I'm a "pedophile" and a "sexual predator". Otherwise, stop talking out of your asshole and leave this discussion.
  8. http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Paedo "1. Paedo Short for 'paedophile'. One who molests young children." Yeah, no. YOU owe me an apology. Of course you won't. Now that I've posted plenty of evidence on how great the show and its music is, you're going to scroll past all of it because a) you're scared of losing social capital by having your "friends" turn against you if they find out you so much as sampled just a teensy smidge of entertainment that inflicts harm to no one whatsoever, and b) you can't take 30 minutes or an hour out of your day to educate yourself and sample some great music. Oh, but you have plenty of spare time to make tons of lengthy posts (with tons of links!) about what CDs are coming out next. Thanks for proving everything I've said about non-bronies to be correct? Five years from now when My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic has spread farther and farther into mainstream culture, the only embarrassment around here will be from you and everyone else in film score fandom at how right I am. Everyone has the privilege (NOT a right) of expressing an opinion on whether or not the show is bad, its music is bad, or its fandom is bad, after they have watched the show, listened to its music, or participated in its fandom. Also, anyone who thinks that wrongfully accusing someone of pedophilia is "sarcasm" does not deserve the privilege of being my friend, so kindly rescind your Facebook friend request before I block you.
  9. Yes, anyone can spend several hours writing a post about anything. That's not an indicator of obsession. I don't care if he was being sarcastic, making it a joke about it doesn't make it any less disgusting of a thing to say, in fact it makes it MORE revolting. I'd like to know how people turn those cog wheels inside their heads to automatically generate the idea in their minds that gee, watching a cartoon indicates wanting to hang around actual children, or wanting anything to do with them, nevermind sexually violating them, because if they're the ones who so much as process the very thought of it, logical deduction and reasoning concludes that THEY are the ones who have pedophilia on their mind. I sure as hell don't. You should be confronting HIM, not me, because if Stefan is saying these things then HE is the one who needs to be investigated as an actual threat to society. I stay inside my house minding my own business to watch a TV show. "Cyber bullying isn't really an issue if you can simply stop visiting the site" - yes, because ignoring the problem at hand makes it go away. Why even bother having education, science, and medicine as fields of study to make life better in that case? "Oh, I should ignore the fact that I got cancer, that'll make it disappear overnight." "Oh damn, I had unprotected sex and now I have herpes and my girlfriend is pregnant. No sense requiring a condom / birth control / abortion specialist, ignoring it all makes it magically go away!" "Why even bother telling rapists that it's wrong to rape? Obviously that girl was a slutty bitch asking for it, she was scantily-clad at the party and had a few drinks, all the more to slip in a date-rape drug!" No. Fuck that noise. Leaving a place one has every right to be in while the rest pollute the environment with their toxic is basically saying "I don't want to make this place better for myself and everyone else, and I don't want to shame those who did wrong and deserve to be outed", essentially throwing up the white flag by allowing the bullies to win and consume it all. I am not going to allow that to happen so long as I'm around. What's worse is that the "chill" people are advocating the behavior of the bullies by refusing to intervene. They might as well be cheering them on and egging the victims by remaining neutral by default. You don't show up to the scene of a crime as an officer and not interrogate the witnesses who saw it happen and didn't do squat. So while I hold zero respect for bullies, I similarly want nothing to do with bystanders who won't help fend them off because they care more about their own social standing than maintaining a happy and welcoming environment. I copy-pasted the last four paragraphs from another post I made on FSM, because you've now shown that you are part of the problem by remaining "chill", as outlined in a diatribe written by someone I respect dearly: http://prpltnkr.tumblr.com/post/32369131727/troll-nation-the-cult-and-culture-of-chill So yes, why bother telling the bullies to stop being assholes, when we can go the easy way out by playing the victim-blaming card instead and tell him to stop visiting a website he has every goddamn right to participate in without having to be ridiculed or discriminated against just because he watches a TV show that everyone else knows nothing about because they aren't open-minded enough to be willing to educate themselves on it and try it out as they bloody do with everything else they encounter because they're only seeing the fucking cover art of the DVD set and it's girly and it has ponies on it and they're magical sparkly with stupid names like Twinkle Shine and Rainbow Brite as if any of that is somehow so bad it's worth alienating other people over because o your own ignorance and you don't understand it Jesus Christ, I should have never participated in film music fandom in the first place. The more I stick around the more I grow resentful of all of it. At least people like Quint and some of the folk on FSM are decent, but 90% of it is full of a-holes. And now that I've disrespected the Golden Rule of the Internet to never get angry at things ("It's just the internet!"*), I'll probably be banned when I wake up tomorrow for leaving a profanity-laced post here. * Not. See http://prpltnkr.tumblr.com/post/35971745785/not-sure-where-this-originally-came-from-someone Oh, and do read this. I had my doubts on agreeing with this guy 100% before, but I think I am with him completely now. http://ponyconfessions.tumblr.com/post/18980028272 Everyone else stopped taking me seriously years ago when I first started posting about liking MLP, so I expect no different here. Logical and rational argument just flies above everyone else.
  10. Here's some links to several articles that explains it far better than I could. http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/rise-of-the-bronies/ http://ponyslitterbox.wordpress.com/2014/01/02/is-season-4-catering-to-us-or-the-kids-yes/ http://icrontic.com/article/why-grown-ass-men-love-my-little-pony-friendship-is-magic-so-much http://www.uproxx.com/gammasquad/2012/08/5-steps-to-understanding-bronies/ http://www.thegeekprofessor.com/ponies/is-my-little-pony-a-menace-to-society/ http://www.thegeekprofessor.com/ponies/why-i-am-a-brony-a-my-little-pony-friendship-is-magic-fan/ http://www.girlsgonechild.net/2013/04/we-need-to-allow-men-to-be-sensitive.html Examples of the show's pop culture references: http://family-room.ew.com/2013/02/14/my-little-pony-friendship-is-magic-big-lebowski-star-wars/ Top 5 Reasons My Little Pony Is Better Than Any Cartoon I Grew Up With: http://blogs.houstonpress.com/artattack/2013/09/my_little_pony.php As for the music, An interview with series songwriter Daniel Ingram: http://comicbook.com/blog/2013/03/01/my-little-ponys-emmy-winning-daniel-ingram-on-scoring-for-kids-of-all-ages/ "This Day Aria" (linked in the interview) is highly regarded as one of Ingram's best songs for the series for its Disney-esque quality and feel. Two other songs he did for season 1 are throwbacks to Stephen Sondheim: http://mlp.wikia.com/wiki/Art_of_the_Dress http://mlp.wikia.com/wiki/At_the_Gala One of my favorite songs is the 80s-power-rock-ballad inspired Cutie Mark Crusaders Song (I ripped my own instrumental as I don't like listening to the horrible-on-purpose vocals): http://mlp.wikia.com/wiki/Cutie_Mark_Crusaders_Song This song that just aired last Saturday was touted by scriptwriter Meghan McCarthy as having a Danny Elfman vibe to it: http://mlp.wikia.com/wiki/Bats_(song) A new episode set to air in early February guest stars Weird Al Yankovic and it will be a musical episode featuring a number of songs.

There was at least one or two other ghostwriter composers involved, but these two did the bulk of the underscore work. Will Anderson used to perform in Weird Al Yankovic's band; he did the music for Biker Mice from Mars as well as a number of 90s and 2000s Marvel animated TV shows. He also wrote and performed the Earthworm Jim TV series theme. Will and Weird Al are still friends today; several of the guitar underscore pieces for MLP was performed on Al's tour bus. http://willheim.deviantart.com/art/shout-out-to-my-mlp-fim-team-294420506 Kristopher Gee is a friend of John Ottman who helped him out with / wrote additional music for The Losers, Astro Boy, Orphan, and Jack the Giant Slayer.

I prefer talking to those who are more open-minded and willing to give it a try, rather than the immediately-dismissive of most others. (I spent several hours writing this post, so I'll be sure to link back here when people on FSM inevitably give me more flack) Here's something for the haters to digest, also: http://ponyconfessions.tumblr.com/post/18980028272 Double Post: Since your original "brony kid" post calling me out was the first such post in this thread to reference MLP, you are talking about my past behavior on FSM and not in response to you, therefore I'll say this: When other people's reactions are so far beyond ignorant and uneducated to the point of being insulting and hurtful (do you really think Stefan calling me a "pedo" here is acceptable? Or this bigotry from Daniel Schweiger? Or JJH on FSM referring to my interest as "bordering on pedophilia" and posting a picture mocking the disabled (I have Asperger's Syndrome)? These are "opinions" to you?), that's not a "lack of maturity to handle different opinions", that's calling out intentional cyber-bullying and shooting it down. And no easier a target for bigots to come out of their caves than someone defying social norms, I guess, as if that's somehow a bad thing. (last I checked, most social norms are bad) Everyone is entitled to their "opinion". Likewise, I'm entitled to tell everyone why their opinion is wrong and that they should stop having that opinion. I never said you did. I was speaking in general terms here. I'm "shoving it into people's faces"? How, exactly? By posting a few threads about it on FSM and bumping them every once in a while when something new comes up? By responding to people whenever they bring up the subject without my instigation to correct them about false information? Isn't that what everyone on the internet does? It's not like I'm holding a gun to people's heads demanding that they click on and read everything I post (though they certainly should as they would be better educated). If anything, the collective of FSM and film score fandom in general is shoving Star Trek / Star Wars into people's faces trying to get it noticed and accepted. An FSM board search yields the following: "STAR TREK": 788 topics "STAR WARS": 419 topics "MY LITTLE PONY": 8 topics (one of these was a joke thread I made from before MLP:FiM even existed; another one was not started by me) Hence my taking offense to your usage of the word "obsession". Am *I* the one who's obsessed here for posting half a dozen threads? Or is it everyone else that they feel the need to post nearly EIGHT HUNDRED threads about the same damn thing? I think everyone else's negative "stop liking what I don't like because I refuse to research it like I do with everything else" influence is clouding your viewpoint here. If you're referring to this, nowhere in the thread does Roger say to me to stop talking to him about it. http://www.intrada.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=4178
