  1. I'm looking to unload The Accidental Tourist and The Poseidon Adventure (Johnnyboy version). Both are in perfect condition and ready to go. Anyone interested can pm me. The funds will aid me in locating my missing Ambersons footage.

    The absolute truth: Who's Better?

    I could see it.

    The absolute truth: Who's Better?

    Agreed and I'm pretty sure Williams feels the same way.
  4. I was afraid of that. Just not sure it's worth the 5 hour drive. Out of curiosity, those that are going where are you staying? Looks like Lenox is an expensive area, so Albany was my second choice since it's only about 45 minutes from there. Any other suggestions?
  5. I'm really interested in going this year. Never been there before and looking for opinions. For anyone who has been to Tanglewood and the Mann Center in Philly, are they pretty much the same set up? What I'm curious about is how far back the lawn area is.

    Bernard Herrmann Film Scores

    Lord have mercy on your soul. How dare you talk about any aspect of my masterpiece in such a manner. :spiny: I personally love Herrmann and as Steef pointed out above, you either like his style or you don't. There is just a feel and mood I get when I listen to most of his scores that greatly appeals to me. I was lucky enough to attend the concert at New York in April and I think Scorsese's description nailed it. He said Herrmann's music is contemplative and makes you think about the very existence of life itself. That probably isn't the case for every single one of his scores, but I do think it's the general rule of thumb. If you haven't given Vertigo a listen I highly recommend that to be your next choice.
  7. What a sight that would be old man.

    John Williams in New York

    I wasn't going to go initially, but now I'm changing my mind. Is it safe to assume that Spileberg and Scorsese will be there both nights?
  9. Had Star Wars on 8-track at the tender age of 6.
  10. Amen... specifically about him passing way too soon. Double amen to that. You have to blame Edwards for that mess. I recently watched The Life and Death of Peter Sellers and it felt to me as if the film made a mockery of him. Indeed he was eccentric, but it was quite unflattering at times.
  11. You don't have a hard drive? He has a hard drive alright...just ask Tippi.

    I do see what you mean and I hate what you are saying.

    Who Would Win In A Fight?

    Curious... very curious indeed.

    The score is a lot of fun and very different from anything he has done. Certainly worth getting for all die hard Williams fans.

    Rose Byrne as Vesper??? Have they gone completely mad over there at Bondland??? Hopefully this new Thandie Newton rumor pans out. Not sure she would have been my first choice, but certainly better than Padme's handmaiden.
