    Blimey, did the person who did the typesetting not know how to beam 8th notes?

    I hope you don't spend this much time waiting at an airport for your luggage.

    Glad it's not just me. This is like waiting at the baggage claim at an airport watching everyone around you getting their luggage off the carousel, and gradually starting to suspect your bags didn't make it. I hate that feeling.

    I did know that. He's equally unhinged as B.O.S.S. Classic who has so many wonderful over-the-top villains played completely straight (not played for laughs, but sometimes getting unintentional ones.) My absolute favourite is Harrison Chase in Seeds of Doom, which is also my all-time favourite Who story.

    Oh you should see it. Shoddy CSO backdrops (and some awful acting from the mother on Metebelis 3) aside, it's a really fun story. Lis Sladen is particularly good in it, but I also enjoy John Dearth as the bizarrely wicked Lupton, and the character of Tommy has a very nice arc.

    It's nice to see Mike Yates have some sort of redemption.

    How DARE you suggest that Williams was inspired by anyone! Williams grew up in a bubble of creativity. He has never heard music by anyone else! Everything he writes is PURE WILLIAMS!!!

    For me the two Geoffrey Burgon Who scores from series 13 are the pinnacles of Who scores. A small orchestra with effective use of processing effects. Both scores were released on one CD about 15 years ago. Great stuff! https://www.amazon.com/Doctor-Who-Terror-Zygons-Seeds/dp/B00003XB2C/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1522337339&sr=8-3&keywords=seeds+of+doom+cd
     
    For me the music has been an issue with the recent seasons of Dr. Who. In the classic series there would be a main composer for each season, but there would always be guest composers taking over for several stories. It kept the sound of the show fresh, and really helped make stories like Seeds of Doom and Terror of the Zygons (and Sea Devils!) have a distinctive feel. I'd love to see that happen again - several composers used each season. Probably not going to happen, but still something I'd love to see.

    Update on mine: I just clicked my order from the initial confirmation and it has a status of SHIPPED AND OUT FOR DELIVERY!  Whoa!  I never got an email from LLL saying it shipped,  no "Employee3 has sent you a package."  So I just assumed it hadn't shipped yet!
     
    Feels like Christmas came early!

    pixie_twinkle got a reaction from Incanus in I have a new CD out!   
    Sorry guys, this is a shameless plug! My new CD "Spacehead" just came out last week, and I'm in the ugly process of promoting it. Right now it's available on iTunes, CDBaby, Spotify, and YouTube, and should be up on Amazon in a week or so. It's essentially a pop album with vocals and various instruments - mostly piano and keyboards, but guitar and violin make the odd appearanc. It's very retro 70s/80s in style, because my influences are people like Kraftwerk, Gary Numan, Alan Parsons, Sufjan Stevens, Brian Eno, Todd Rundgren, Peter Gabriel etc. There are a couple of instrumentals in there if you're not so into the pop thing (Wickliffe and Constellations). There are certainly plenty of film score moments, especially in the instrumental tracks. I'd be honored if you'd check it out. I'm attaching a link below. If I'm not allowed to post links, just Google "James Leatherbarrow Spacehead" and you should find the CDBaby page, or type it into YouTube.
     
    If you know anyone who's into that kind of thing, I'd be grateful if you'd mention it to them.
