  1. Setting: Hollywood Oligarchic Corporatocracy The Inciting Incident: Disney buys Lucasfilm for $4 billion Conflict: The paid elite vs The fans Climax: Palpatine comes back from the dead in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Final Scene: A reprise of "Binary Sunset"
  2. To stop myself from rewatching Endgame for the bazillionth time 🤪 Playlist name: Infinity War Help Arrives Family Affairs He Won’t Come Out The One Porch Main On End I have similar playlist for The Force Awakens Rey’s Theme Scherzo for X-Wings Finn’s Confession Maz’s Counsel The Ways of the Force The Jedi Steps and Finale 👻
  3. So... Disney has been and will be asking contemporary America and the rest of Earth to revisit 60-to-80-year-old comic book characters in poorly conceived "stories" filled with messy CGI and soliloquies worse than "I don't like sand."
  4. This is simply the best cd cover I've ever seen.
  5. Season 1-7: I am Daenerys Stormborn, of House Targaryen, of the blood of Old Valyria – I am the Dragon’s Daughter. And I swear to you, that those who would harm you will die screaming. Season 8: Hey y'all, Crazy Dany's in town!
  6. My apprentice is a misogynistic fascist who likes S&M... I'm so fucked up.
  7. The ending is probably going to be something like last sequence of TFA, a torch-passing moment, and that horrible freeze-frame helicopter shot. The value of it comes from all the transtextual meaning that people will give to it. I wouldn't be surprised if film tries to frame all the events in the sequel trilogy as a vision/boy's fantasy that Luke had when he was looking at the twin suns. I just hope it won't be a wide shot of Galaxy's Edge.

  9. Wow! A JW CD for free! I don't know if the USCG Band will ever send their recordings to a non-U.S. citizen...
  10. I've spent enough time with the ST scores...
  11. I think the variance and variety of SW, TPM and TFA is what I really look for in a SW score, after 5 years of being a Jwfan. 😊 Back in 2014, when I first saw Star Wars, I never would’ve thought that I’d be able to hear Rey’s Theme in 2015. I didn’t even know the prequels existed. My heart goes to ROTJ because of Luke and Leia, but my brain enjoys SW, TPM and TFA the most. These 3 scores set up vastly different musical worlds for their sequels. They are also great lessons on composition and musical storytelling. TLJ, was a disappointment for me because it’s very self-aware and self-referential. There’s a lot of fourth-wall-breaking and gotcha moments going on in TLJ. I don’t think those ha-ha moments work very well with the seriousness and earnestness of those quotes of Leia’s Theme and Yoda’s Theme. But if it’s meant to be deconstructive, to be like Kylo Ren, I’d say TLJ as a musical work is a much more enjoyable and friendly kind of deconstruction than most of “modern” and “contemporary” music. I’m just glad the soundtrack is selling and SW is still a huge pop culture thing. TLJ may not follow previous lines of thoughts. It falls into the wild-card category of deconstructive music. It’s commercial. It’s a Disney soundtrack. It’s a pop culture thing. Still, if I have to choose between TLJ and every single piece of music that is meant to be deconstructive, I’d pick TLJ. TLJ may be JW’s eighth/ninth best SW score, but it still has heart.
