Slowly but surely, Lee & Steef are slowly germinating their corrupt pervy-ness in every thread til the whole site will burst out in rainbows & golden showers.
I had a dream about it, actually.

VISITING THIS BOARD SINCE: Yesterday, when my friend introduced me to it!
FUN FACT: I am related to John Williams! (Not spamming or looking for attention, we really are related- he's my 94-year-old great-grandmother's first cousin. I've never met him, but I REALLY want to, and I think I might be able to arrange it if I tried.) That's my main reason for joining this fan forum. I wanted to connect with people who love him (and want to meet him) as much as I do!

Woohoo!!! We got a JW blood relation here folks!!
If you put John Williams in a dryer, you get Jerry Goldsmith! You get the downside version!

Are there any other relatives on this site? Does anyone know? It would be really cool to connect with someone I didn't know I was related to :-)

Cool! I had no idea there was a giant John Williams fan forum out there! This is awesome!!!!

I believe Jason is right that you are the first Sarah. Welcome to the board. Don't let some of our older members scare you off like they have tended to towards other female posters.

I somehow stumbled across this fantastic forum while googling some topic of orchestration or another. I've been reading so much incredible insight, knowledge, and thoughtful commentary that I can't even remember what brought me here in the first place!
I've been a huge JW fan since childhood, and I can't believe I never thought to look for a forum dedicated to serious discussion of his music. I'm almost as wowed by the insight on this forum, as I was when I first heard the Star Wars theme a long time ago, in a Cineplex far, far away...
A big thank you to everyone who makes this forum such a wonderful repository and discussion of incredible wisdom on John Williams, film-scoring, orchestration, and everything else.
