  1. I made the Coronavirus my bitch. I may yet be afflicted by it but I'm flourishing as an Essential Frontline Worker with expendable income and masculinity to lure a beautiful woman and cashing in on unused Covid hazard pay.

  2. I haven't gotten around to Skyfall yet, but I've always loved Finding Nemo, WALL-E, and A Series of Unfortunate Events. There's just so much style and heart in those 3 scores. ASOUE in particular is just brimming with personality, and his music really fits with the tone of the film and the book series.

  3. Almost everything, including the entire plot, of TROS leaked many months in advance. What are the odds that a second film was magically already completed and we have literally zero evidence that it exists aside from your word? Wait, I know what you're going to say... "they purposely leaked TROS' plot!"

  4. Maybe a renewed interest on The Patriot can lead to the score finally being expanded! One can dream.

  5. The United State Marine Band (aka The President's Own) will perform selections of music by American composers, including John Williams, during the prelude of the Inauguration ceremony of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris tomorrow, January 20, at the US Capitol. https://www.marineband.marines.mil/Portals/175/Docs/Presidential Inauguration 2021/2021 Inaugural Prelude Program.pdf

  6. It is allowed because it's directly related to the music of John Williams. However, any political discussion derived from that post will be banned. It could have.

  7. Williams music was also featured during the signing of the Abraham Accords for the Mideast peace deals at the White House weeks back, but that didn't get a topic.

  9. They can stick it right between my toes and give me some of that experimental Regeneron while they're at it. Then I'll take my helicopter back to the residence and take off my mask dramatically before going inside after posing.

  10. I take no offense. I completely agree that the vaccine distribution has been a complete failure pretty much across the board. Every average individual should get the vaccine if made available to them though because of course it is most important that *everyone get vaccinated*. The failures of the governments and health departments are neither our fault nor our responsibility to fix as individuals.

  11. I was thinking the same thing. Besides the plot leaks we had tons of paparazzi photos of exterior sets and what not as well. There's no way we wouldn't have gotten some of those.

  12. New glasses I also got this little container to transfer my coffee out of these crappy bags they come in, along with some scoops so I don't make a mess anymore. It had no tag or duplicate at Targets so the cashier just rang it up as six bucks.

  13. After Shirley's death, I contacted the SF CHRONICLE and urged them to publish an obituary. I used this opportunity to champion her BTAS work- unreleased at the time. http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/c/a/2006/12/10/BAGJGMSURB1.DTL

    I've really warmed up to that one over the years. It's pretty underrated.

  16. That’s harsh! Though, I’d argue the next transition is even worse, about as convincing as a sudden lurch into another key in the final bars of Beethoven’s 5th symphony would be. Agreed. And the major-key Rey chimes in the final bars are just magic! A good reason to stick with the Yoda-less FYC version, though then you miss out on ‘Holdo’s Resolve’.

  17. JW is really the Paul McCartney of film music. It's a true gift to be able to create such catchy melodies. The truth is that not all directors are confident enough to let the music play such an important 'character'(or role) in their movies. Some (bad) directors (like Riddley Scott) really want the music to be a "background" music. JW never did that. Since Jaws, everyone understood that. And it was confirmed with Star Wars. Music can be an essential part of a movie, it's OKAY, IT'S GREAT AND WE LOOOOOOVE THAT!!!! PS: But now, as film

  18. None of them do what ESB does better than ESB does it. It's a grandly bittersweet finale, followed by a brisk and exciting summation of all of the score's new major themes, all with minimal redundancy of material in the album setting. It's a powerhouse and I love it. But if you're looking for the fairytale-in-space feel, you can't beat ANH. It just feels like the perfect conclusion of what could have easily been a fun standalone space fantasy film. It's not super long, and the credits completely omit two of the score's most important themes, but boy, is it charming.

  22. Pretty much that! And it's probably a lot better after 2 seasons (and less than half as many episodes over the same number of years) than TNG was. For anyone who isn't really feeling it for Discovery or Picard, the Orville is much closer in tone to the 90's Trek shows, but with better production values. Not that they lacked, but FX tech moves on; the ship FX are only marginally better, there's just more of them (and not as good as the Mandalorian, for example), although the Orville itself is a bit of a meh design, certainly not as iconic as the Enterprise. However, the music is much closer to

  25. Reporting in from Oz, low cases in only a few major spots - most cases are from overseas and are in quarantine. I'm not much of a nationalist or a patriot, but I'm quite proud of our efforts and sacrifices. I have family in the UK and US, so I'm worried for their health due to poor governmental management.

  28. It's certainly not for Episode 10 thats for sure. What's there to have a consensus on? He wrote an addition hour of score for what I assume was his original intentions. What we ended up with was revisions on top of revisions. That's about it. I mean, it's probably marvelous and would be extremely interesting to listen to, but there's no big secret hidden in there and the amount is hardly "ludicrous". Honestly? Step back, let it breath, and handle one thing at a time. I don't want any more big Star Wars movies for a couple years, but I'm a casual fan. Not nearly as investe
