  1. Me too! Apparently he was a ladies man.
  2. Very close family and they too are huge fans of JW. You knew teen JW was a womanizer?
  3. He's great - his other symphonies are all excellent too so I'm sure this will be excellent as well.
  4. Wait a second, I just realized we've been responding to thor from five years ago!
  5. Don't forget his Harvard degree same year as Darth Vader. John Williams, Doctor of Music John Williams is one of America’s most accomplished and successful composers for film and the concert stage. His 40-year artistic partnership with director Steven Spielberg has resulted in many of Hollywood’s most acclaimed and successful films, including all seven “Star Wars” films and the first three “Harry Potter” films. In addition to his work in film and television, Williams has composed numerous works for the concert stage and served as music director and laureate conductor of the Boston Pops Orchestra from 1980-1993. As one of the nation’s most distinguished and contributive musical voices, Williams has received a variety of prestigious awards, including the National Medal of Arts, the Kennedy Center Honors, the Olympic Order, and numerous Academy Awards, Grammy Awards, Emmy Awards, and Golden Globe Awards. In 2016, Williams received the 44th Life Achievement Award from the American Film Institute — the first composer to receive this honor. James Earl Jones, Doctor of Arts James Earl Jones is an acclaimed actor who has performed on stage, television, and in films. Most notably, Jones’ voice is known as Darth Vader in “Star Wars” and Mufasa in Disney’s “The Lion King.” Since his Broadway debut in 1957, Jones has won numerous and distinguished awards, including the National Medal of Arts, the John F.

Jones also was awarded a Lifetime Achievement honor at the 2017 Tony Awards. In 2004, Jones was recognized with the Harvard Foundation Humanitarian Award. Earlier this year, Jones starred in the American Repertory Theater’s “Night of the Iguana” at Harvard. What was your email request? Are you asking something that is public record? I agree with others that JW's privacy should be respected if something is not in public record (an official bio, program notes, mentioned in interview, etc.), he has a reasonable right to privacy. Your email request might be in the trash can.

    Music by John Williams - The T-Shirt

    Looks pretty cool actually. I wouldn't mind one as a yoga shirt to match my nasa nike shirt. Is it sort of stretchy and good with sweat/quick drying?
  7. Luke will use force projection on the entire fleet. Consumed with hatred, the First Order will chase the phantom fleet until they are out of fuel slowly dying in pursuit of a phantom goal. Hence no war is necessary. The rebels hug together celebrating their victory so yes, hugs win over war and order is restored to the galaxy. Rey sheds a tear looking out the window wondering if she made the right choice in abandoning Kylo Ren until a crackly but familiar hand touches her shoulder saying "hello, what have we here?" [FADE TO BLACK]
  8. They'll get this CGI Leia to play her in episode IX and all her lines will be dialog edits from the previous films. She'll have a Captain Kirk cadence that will incense fans and will be the source of huge debates on this site and throughout the internet.
  9. That's awesome! Remember folks, July 21 is the 49th anniversary of Apollo 11 landing on the moon. Some of those involved still live in Houston (Michael Collins - Columbia pilot; Gene "Failure is not an Option" Kranz). These guys are in their late 80's and are national treasures. There are only four moon walkers still alive.
  10. I predict the real Luke is still alive and it was his force projection that remained on Ahch-to vanishing at the end of The Last Jedi.
  11. You: All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what has karelm ever done for JWfan? Me: Brought peace to JWFan? You: Well it goes without saying he has brought peace throughout this forum!
  12. All right, my bad joke has gone on too long. $20,000 this year. $50k next year.
  13. Thanks. But you make me realize I am not charging enough. Price now $10,000 because I tend to be too nice.

    The Classical Music Recommendation Thread

    I love this composer! Not so familiar with his chamber works but own a box set of his symphonies. I quite like anything else I've heard of his. Lots of drama and energy. He's a great neo-romantic. Thanks for posting this. Also check out Sean O'boyle. River Symphony and Didgeridoo concerto are quite exciting reminding me of Ralph Vaughan Williams' Sea Symphony.
  15. I've been offered a free ticket. It is 5th row front. I am willing to sell it for $5,000 US.
