Is anyone prepared to put money on the possibility that this is SCHINDLER'S LIST, and that the "special charity' will be the Shoah Foundation?

When is Holocaust Memorial Day, chaps?

 

International Holocaust Remembrance Day is January 27th, which would put it right in line with the Feb charity release.  Fingers crossed!  

 

My older son and I were watching it on Netflix last night, he had never seen it before.  We got through the first 90 min or so before he headed off to bed.  He was pretty impressed with the movie so far.  I haven't seen it in about 10 years so it was good to revisit this classic film (and score!).

I wish they realised that it's ultimately about the consumers, not about what they think about the score...

Yeah man, fuck the artists and what they feel about their own work! It belongs to the consumers!

I haven't said that. I do think that artists should be able to let go at a certain point and just give the consumers, who will ultimately buy the product or not, what they want.

 

George Lucas will answer the call.

It’s not the job of the artist to give the audience what the audience wants. If the audience knew what they needed, then they wouldn’t be the audience. They would be the artists. It is the job of artists to give the audience what they need. -Alan Moore

Nice one! I like it.

But "making what you need" is still a huge step further from "knowing what you need"...

It might not be Schindler's List. From the FSM message board:

To answer your question, yes 100% of this upcoming release will be donated to United Way of Ventura County Thomas Fire Fund. The cd will cost $15. We are just waiting for the studio to wave all of their royalties on this release (the composer has already done so. He is even paying the mastering bill, we will be handling the printing and manufacturing bills out of pocket). 

We hope to have it out in February, just waiting on the red tape.

I'm quite happy there is nothing out there this month that I desperately need (so far anyway). Money is a bit tight this month (for pleasant reasons!). And it looks like the first Feb release from Intrada is Cosmos vol 4 anyway so I can do without that one as well.

Nothing for me this month either, but that's okay because it means I might finally be able to dunk in for The Post and CE3K, maybe one of the two big recent Intradas as well.

 

That guy on FSM who won't stop asking LLL about Buffy is probably crapping his pants right now.

I don't remember the music from Buffy. The other three never heard of them or seen them.

 

I couldn't bear to watch more than 1.5 seasons.  I don't remember anything particularly interesting scorewise from what I did see.

Intrada has good chances to become the special label of the year, after how they begun this year.

It's always nice to see an expansion shutting up a bunch of people. I personally can't bear to read "Varese should expand Small Soldiers and Air Force One" posts any more, though I also agree that this statement is as true as "A corpse is dead".

If you started at the beginning, it's no wonder! The first had pretty bad music in general, cliched horror stingers and such. Season 2 was a bit of a step up but the show and the score didn't really get good until halfway through the season -- probably right after you gave up watching, sadly. Then season 3 IMO was even better. Season 4 while generally a step down after that, actually had some of Christophe Beck's strongest and most creative and unique scores, such as Restless (very experimental season finale) and Hush (largely silent episode where the music carried everything because the premise was monsters that steal people's voices).

I feel your frustration. Everything involving Limerick is frustrating.

At least there is a version without dialogue out there, unlike War of the Worlds.

Leaks and bootlegs don't count. La-La Land counts.
