I finally did it.

Recommended Posts

I'm on these forums all the time since the conversation is usually pretty enlightened and the information accurate. Especially recently with the upcoming release of Hook, I wasn't able to get enough information about what was/wasn't on the disc. Well I just received my copy of La-La Land's Hook today and so I've decided to finally join and become a member. Today is a great day!

A brief note about myself: I am a 23 year old male writer/composer from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. For sheer nostalgia alone, Hook is my favorite film score and maybe John's greatest work. The Phantom Menace is the first score I ever owned, although I have always noticed and appreciated film music. I aspire to one day compose for the stage/screen myself.

Listening to Hook as I type and I can't express how excited I am! The package is beautiful.

To everyone, hello.

And I think I am hand-writing La-La Land a big thank-you for bringing my grail to life so beautifully.

Thanks guys.

I've rarely found anyone who even notices that there are scores in films, forget ever isolating it and appreciating it. When I'm asked what kind of music I listen to, I'm often met with incredulous stares, eyeball-popping and the Cro-Magnon sound of confusion at my answer. I continue by clarifying, "Like Star Wars, you know, Lord Of The Rings?" I stick to dropping famous names only. Inevitably they answer, "So like, there are no words?"

On the contrary, there are often words. They are just typically Sanskrit. Or Elvish ;).

Welcome Mitchell to the boards! And the dilemma you describe is very apparent. We few soundtrack collectors are quite a small group, but we admire something great, and thats what matters I suppose:P

Welcome, Mitchell!

Well I just received my copy of La-La Land's Hook today and so I've decided to finally join and become a member. Today is a great day!

But why did it take you so long and so much effort to join and become a member? :blink:

I joined the very minute I found this MB! (Actually I visited the main page for some time before I discovered there is a message board, as well! :lol: )

Not sure. I've always been a Williams fan and I've visited this site for a long while. I remember when there were full score analyses all over the place. I was just getting into scores then. Now that I've been listening to them almost exclusively for greater than a decade, maybe I'm not as green and have something to contribute.
