    What Is The Last Score You Listened To?

    Well, I'll definitely consider the LLL DAD release. I'm not as keen on TWINE's score beyond a couple of tracks. I'll have a look at some point.

    I slipped towards, what might some consider the dark side...David Arnold's Die Another Day and Tomorrow Never Dies. seriously considering the LLL expanded for DAD. My CD (brought when it came out in 2002) has packed up..

    Why do people act like the 1990s were such a long time ago?

    Because the 90s were a long time ago. Toy Story 2 is twenty years old...

    Same. At uni when I went to get my Revenge of the Sith DVD. In the old HMV on New Oxford Street. I joined the queue right at the end -they drew the rope behind me and someone said, "Mr Daniels has agreed to stay to sign everyone's DVD". When I got up there, we shook hands, he asked what I did -said I was a History student, he said I was the second that day, he personalised the DVD, posed for a photo (we both took our specs off for it and he joked about it) and off I went. Nice chap in my book.

    John Barry's Across the Sea of Time (I went through a Goldsmith mood for Jan-March and now it's JB), this might not be an OST as such but it's wonderful. Flight Over New Year packs a wallop, it's moving, it's stirring and personally, if I ever get to New York, this would be playing in my mind hopefully. Across the Sea of Time (the track) is as good, Coney Island and The Wonder of America.
  9. As Norm MacDonald might say: "Someone explain to the folks at home what ascension means". 😄

    What are you drinking tonight?

    Tonight, well, to borrow a line by Sinatra on his Vegas album: "Jack Daniels...that's what it is."

    You Only Live Twice, Barry love the sound at the start of "Aki, Tiger and Osato", something kind of dangerous and sixties cool. You forget the film it's attached to. Other highlights "Fight at Kobe Docks", "James Bond in Japan" and a few others in between.

    What will the title of SW Ep. IX be?

    Didn't quite make it. A lollipop for half right. 😏
  13. As the guy said when he fell out of a building, so far so good. Aside from Leia's Theme the next best part was seeing Lando. Intrigued by Palpatine but the way these films have gone, well who knows.
  14. Personally, best bit of that teaser was Leia's Theme. Love how it sounds.
  15. I'm hoping the film far outweighs the title. Off to the teaser then.

    One more Barry, Walkabout. A quietly beautiful score. They Might Be Giants is kind of similar I suppose but still would like some more tracks for that to come to light on CD. Read somewhere Barry left the score to someone else (Ken Thorne?) to arrange for the film.

    What is the last Television series you watched?

    Not a series as such, but Katie Derham did something about Bridge on the River Kwai's score on BBC4 https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m00041td I still wish, probably only one, that parts of the Dunkirk score cropped up on some CD. Closest I've gotten is Heroes of Telemark.

    Watched a few in recent weeks, some of the latest being Bond's -FRWL, YOLT, LALD, TSWLM, Moonraker, FYEO, VTAK, Living Daylights, Licence to Kill. Over a few weeks as I say... ...and some slightly older classics, Sink the Bismarck, Went the Day Well and Fish Called Wanda.

    well, aside from selections from the Music of John Barry Definitive Collection (at last a piece from They Might Be Giants), what with re-reading the book... Raise the Titanic best part of the movie. Always enjoy that triumphant sound as the Titanic breaks cover (yes, it was in the Prelude, Titanic Enters NY Harbour and end but in that particular track, what it accompanies, is the better part). Wish the film had been done vastly differently, RTT was the first Cussler book I ever read and I reread it most years. Maybe not Barry's best score but not his worst.

    The "(Fill in the Blank) Has Died" Thread

    Seymour Cassel has passed https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/seymour-cassel-dead-familiar-face-john-cassavetes-films-was-84-1102383 I fear I first saw him in Rushmore which seems sacrilegious what with his connection to Cassavetes but became a fan of his work soon after. A great loss.
