That's great though! It means John Williams gets to all types of ages ^^ I'm glad that some people of every generation still are interested in classical music.

I know in high school I was the only one who seemed to be interested in it... But they had no clue what they were missing.

Some dude joined 4 hours ago using the name "JHfan". 

 

I've been using that name for over 10 years and the only reason I don't use it here - "JHFan" - is because back in 2009 I tried to register here and was disallowed, probably due to some petty crap about me being part of the old 'Hornershrine'. 

 

I must say, some random guy posting as my usual username here pisses me off.

Hi, again I have no idea what this is all about and I don’t know you. These are my own initials and I love Horner’s scores, so I figured why not. I’m not on any other message boards, haven’t been for years. Just here because I wanted to know more about the complete Titanic score and other unreleased music.

Not using ‘your’ username, it’s just a username that came to mind. I’d be happy to change it if it is such a big deal.

I wasn't a mod in 2009 so know nothing about any of that, but if there is no user using that screen name you would have been allowed to change your name to it any time  you wanted.

 

Now that there's someone else using the name, if he elects to change to something else, you can change yours to it.

Lol I guess I was probably like 10. My whole family likes John Williams so I did get started early. 

 

Nice. I started and collecting and visiting these sites when I was 12. Still a lot younger than most. Let's just say, after a rough start at Filmtracks, that I'm glad I didn't start posting at any younger, lol.

Did anyone say there was anything wrong with Indy 2? :nono:

Well, there’s nothing wrong with it, I just don’t care for the movie, so I have much less exposure to it, so, I really can’t name it a favorite. Whereas the other two films I love, and their scores’ appeal is obvious.
