The Quick Question Thread

Recommended Posts

Another question. I'm looking for an American e-mail newsletter that contains links to articles about current events and US politics. So not like the New York times who send you the entire articles, just links like the Guardian/The Sun in the UK. I would like to receive it in the evening, so morning in the US. Any recommendations?

MP3 VBR question (yes, I use MP3).

 

I just re-installed WavePad on my new computer (new version) and converted some files, which suddenly have a higher bitrate. For instance, The Wizards' Consort used to be 164kbps, now it's 254kbps, even though I use the same settings (128-320, highest quality 0). What's going on? Audacity gives the same result, but I never used to get these high bitrates for clfassical music.

I have a quick JAWS2 question:

Why was no source music (AMITY HIGH SCHOOL BAND/DOWNTOWN, etc.) not included on the 2-disc Intrada?

 

John Williams vetoed it

Yea but Jaws doesn't even have all the source music recorded.  I guess he's particular about some of that stuff >shrug<

Quite illogical really, because 1 does have source music and I think 2's source music is nicer.

Is it really that memorable?

No but it was very nice.

Agreed, but the Amity FANFARE is original, so I would have liked to have had that included.

Does anyone know whether The Patriot was ever shortened for TV broadcast? I wanted to watch it tonight, but ended up with a file with a running time of 2h17, which according to IMDB and Wikipedia can't be right.

IMDB has 3 runtimes:

 

165 min | 175 min (extended) | 142 min (workprint)

 

But also this:

 

Version shown on TNT is heavily edited for violence. Some scenes are color edited (blood is dyed brown to look like mud), while other scenes use alternate takes, and some scenes have been removed completely.

You're better off sticking with the "Apocalypse Now Sessions" album put out by the Rhythm Devils, and the Redux OST, even though the latter mostly contains early versions and alternate takes of the music heard in the film. Several major cues are also missing
