  1. I will help you to bear this burden, Fal Editor, as long as it is yours to bear.
  2. I knew I could rely on someone to make that jib when I mentioned CD tray teeth. LLL really created a legend with that small blunder.
  3. Happy Birthday @GoodMusician!
  4. "When Conrad Pope asked me to play 18 holes with him, I was very moved and had to go outside for a walk to gather myself and then said to him: My dear Conrad, all I do is stroll with my golf bag, work out musical ideas as I walk and look at trees. I don't even swing my clubs that well other than to air conduct a phrase or two. You need better golfer than me for this. And then he, very sweetly, said "I know, but they're all playing in the Masters Tournament."
  5. Don't worry Pasi. I love The Book Thief score too.
  6. Got my Blue Box yesterday. Packaged in a sturdy box with bubble wrap and other padding it arrived pristine. It is such a lovingly crafted score release with meticulous research and well thought out programmes. I love it and I have yet to listen to the other 6 discs on the set. Looking forward to delving into this in the coming days! Btw. Maglorfin the awesome book that comes with the box was in a fine condition and feels an looks very sturdy based on my initial perusal.
  7. Yeah that kind of damage to the jewel cases happens sometimes and not just those ordered from LLL. Broken hinges, knocked out CD tray teeth, cracked CD cases are all the by-products of the postal systems in US and various countries not handling these things with kid gloves.
  8. So it is 15 days of actual recordings and 15 days of rhaita overdubs. Sounds about right.
  9. Superman by John Williams: I just got my Blue Box so I think I'll go through it from beginning to the end in the next few days. This score really does sound better in this iteration and the writing is not too bad either. P.S. The whole Krypton sequence is just musically marvelous stuff. I keep forgetting what gamut of emotions this section alone goes through. Fantastic!
  10. The first one definitely looks considerably more impressive than the second.
  11. It's over one month of continuous audio for all the three scores as I seem to remember Doug Adams mentioning at one point. Or something in that ballpark. Like a lot.
  12. A good question. No doubt temp score is very much part and parcel of modern film making but it would be also safe to assume that the Main Title is a default piece they would place there automatically.
  13. And the BFG isn't?
  14. Great examples above. I would like to add Black Sunday with its suspenseful conspirator music. I love the little repeating figure obsessively weaving through the score.
