  1. Digitally remove the bodies of Owen and Beru, as well as Ponda Baba's severed arm and all the blood. Make Luke not lose his hand, merely get burned a bit. Remove the scene with one Ewok mourning the fall of another. Insert more Wilhelm screams and funny sounds. Insert more dancing Ewoks. Amp up Jar Jar's "Weeesa are freee". Replace Guiness ghost at the end with a McGregor ghost. And make the Vader's NOOOO last till he throws Palpatine into the pit.
  2. If there was a thread asking for lists of JW's top 10 tracks in terms of execution and recording, this would top mine.

    It's not a question whether what we dive into is fantasy, but whether we come back stronger

    Oh 😥 Ok, but maybe there is at least something undiscovered in the archives. Maybe some ideas that he put on paper between the films and forgotten about them

    "To huge laughs from the audience, he revealed that for the first Star Wars, he had initially written a “quite heated love theme” with “a torrid climax” for Luke and Leia, only to later find out that they were siblings". https://www.theguardian.com/film/2016/jun/10/john-williams-afi-lifetime-achievement-george-lucas-steven-spielberg I wonder whether this theme surfaces one day from his archives... I bet it is in a style of his old masters

    the Wilhelm Tell guy? No, what did he say? 😃 Something witty, I'll wager

    I just adore reading what do and did the greats think of each other. I like to imagine, that Williams, studying the sheets by great composers of the past alone and in silence, and learning about them, more than once imagined them as colleagues and made some sort of a bond with them. I am not a believer, but poetically I can say that for all hard work he has done in his life, they already await him upstairs...

    “Certainly Beethoven would have shunned [Hollywood]"---Williams joked---"but Wagner would have had his own studio out there in Burbank with a water tower with a big W on it”.---2016

    The Ring Cycle (orchestral parts) by Wagner, for the first time bringing myself to listen to all of them, a mission which I aborted multiple times in the past. I found his sound hollow and unusually uninteresting, and themes crude, although I did like the thematic development in the Valkyries opera. I will be returning to try some smaller compositions of his, or maybe his earlier works, but I do not expect much of it... I played some random track from ROTS afterwards and there is no way this guy was better than Williams is. Or better than Berlioz, or even Shore (in all of the latter's occasional simplicity). Wagner doesn't sound well to me compared to those before him or those after him (like golden era hollywood). Any reasons why would he deserve higher praise?

    Good. Nerds will excercise. This might end up as a sport with highest reaching weight cathegories, even above those in sumo.

    From what I oberved it is not unlike kendo or historical fencing in technique, clothing and likely rules. Even in sport fencing there is some equipment that features lights just to make show-offy duels more colorful. so... how is this different from other folk sport/dance routines?

    But this is classical humor! After all, J.S. Bach played the organ so much, that he managed to sire 20 children... (7 with his first wife, and after she died, 13 with the second one)
