      Hello!

      For those who may not know, JWFan relies entirely on donations to keep running.  Donations pay for our server bills, as well as keeping our domain and Invision Powerboard fees.
      As an incentive to donate, I am offering a series of free CDS to anyone who donates over a certain amount!   Last time this was a modest success, where I raised $500 of our desired $1,000 and mailed out 3 free CDs to lucky JWFanners.  This time I'll be doing the raffling a littler different!   Our goal is $1000 once again, and I will have four tiers of free CDs you can win once again.  But this time, the more you donate, the more entries into each raffle you'll get!   Each $10 you donate gets your name put into the raffle mug once for the $10 pool, twice for the $20 pool, thrice for the $30 pool, and five times into the $50 pool.  Here is the list of CDs you can win - and I have more to add at a later time when I get a little more organized (I'll post what they are by Friday at the latest)   The $10 pool (Every $10 you donate gets you one ticket into this pool) - will be drawn as soon as we hit $250 donated Tyler Bates - God of War; Ascension (OST, La La Land Records) Danny Elfman - Planet of the Apes (OST, Sony) Danny Elfman - Taking Woodstock (OST, La La Land Records) Christopher Lennertz - Identity Thief (OST, La La Land Records) Christopher Lennertz - Medal of Honor: Rising Sun (OST) Michael Giacchino - Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (OST, Varese Sarabande) Dave Holmes & Various - Ocean's 11 (OST, WB Records) Joel McNeely & Various - Hollywood '94 (Varese Sarabande) Joe Kraemer - Jack Reacher (OST, La La Land Records) John Williams - Born on the Fourth of July (OST, MCA Records)   The $20 pool (Every $10 you donate gets you two ticket into this pool, must donate at least $20 to be eligible) - will be drawn as soon as we hit $500 donated John Barry - First Love (La La Land) Jerry Goldsmith - The Challenge (La La Land) Jerry Goldsmith - In Harm's Way (2009 Intrada edition) Jerry Goldsmith - The Red Pony (Varese) Alan Silvestri - Dutch (La La Land) Shirley Walker - Willard (La La Land) John Williams - Family Plot (Varese Sarabande) or, any of the above CDs if you prefer   The $30 pool (Every $10 you donate gets you three ticket into this pool, must donate at least $30 to be eligible) - will be drawn as soon as we hit $750 donated James Horner - Gorky Park (OOP Kritzerland Edition) James Newton Howard - Outbreak (2CD, Varese Deluxe Edition) Laurence Rosenthal - Clash of the Titans (2CD, Intrada) John Williams - The Fury (2CD, La La Land) John Williams - Jane Eyre (OOP, La La Land) or, any of the above CDs if you prefer   The $50 pool (Every $10 you donate gets you five ticket into this pool, must donate at least $50 to be eligible) - will be drawn as soon as we hit $1,000 donated Jerry Fielding - The Wild Bunch (3CD, FSM) Ira Newborn - The Naked Gun trilogy (3CD, La La Land) Shirley Walker and Various - Batman: The Animated Series Volume 3 (4CD, La La Land) or, any of the above CDs if you prefer     All shipping will be paid by me to anywhere in the world!   I will pull names from a hat for each pool, and you get to pick whatever CD set you want if I pull your name!   To be eligible, leave your JWFan username in the comments area of your donation.  If you want to donate but not be in the running for a free CD, mention that in the comment.   Use this link or the link on the mainpage.       Thank you!   Jason, Ricard, and Andreas.

Hello!

Hello to all,

I am a long time reader of the forums (since about 1999-2000ish) and for one reason or another (being super busy in school, feeling like I had nothing worthy to contribute to the conversation), I never got to posting much of anything. Well, 10 years later here I am. There's just too much fun stuff being discussed for me not to join in :)

I first learned of John Williams thanks to Star Wars as a youngin and it took off from there! I am a Horn player and about to finish a degree in Music Education. I listen to a great deal of film scores (and "classical" music), my top fav film composers being Williams, David Arnold, Mr. Goldsmith, Mr. Giacchino, Bruce Broughton, John Barry and Basil Poledouris.

I love collecting scores and have been making my own nerdy complete edits, somewhat like those by "GoodMusician."

Anyways, have really enjoyed reading the many comments over the years and I hope to make time from now on to get into the conversation:)

- Josh

Looks like you even joined in 2007 but still didn't have anything to say - lurking 7 years, lurking with an identity 3 years, 1 post. :P

Haha, yeah.....I wish the term "lurking" didn't sound so darn creepy, but yep, it's true.

Those who introduce themselves on this Welcome forum don't have a terribly good track record for sticking around. If you can somehow defy the trend, I tip my hat to you.

Oh dear, I hope I haven't already cursed myself by doing so. I do intend on sticking around, I guess we'll see how it goes ;)

I'm just posting here because I'm OCD and I don't like that misspelled "Hello form France" thread to be in my welcome screen. But while I'm here, I'm wondering - did chocolateportals stick around?
