  1. Sneakers? Orchestral with plenty of banging piano for tension. Has nice solos from Branford Marsalis on sax. and don’t forget the Vaughan-Williams quote... Krull, Cocoon, An American Tail, The Land Before Time, The Rocketeer, Legends of the Fall, Braveheart, Apollo 13. Nope. Sneakers. I’ll still pick it up. Probably not the first day available, but eventually.
  2. Wait, this dropped six weeks ago and only this morning I received an e-mail from Omni announcing the release? Damn. (More of a Really?!?) Ordered. Hope its success will lead to TWOK being released. Read the e-mail during a Zoom meeting and my face did not hide my reaction. Somebody got caught not paying attention to the meeting...
  3. Creepshot Return of the Pedi Fatman Returns An American Fail Pillow Carhorse
  4. I got my first shot yesterday. An employee at a clinic that had “left-overs” (people didn’t show up for their appointments) called a family member who called my mother and she texted me at three in the afternoon stating that if I could swing by and pick her up, and get to the clinic by four, we could get our first shots. And, I’ve heard from multiple people, it’s the second shot that’ll knock you on you keister. So, be careful, Disco Stu.
  5. Star Trek III on cassette back in 1985. I’m so old, even my nose hairs have gone grey.
  6. Just as long as they’re not as obtuse as the clues Varese Sarabande has been putting out.
  7. This old fart would like a physical CD. It was announced the day after I started a vacation and was sold out before I returned home and finally got back online. While it’s been years since I read a physical book (them e-books allow for bigger font size for my bad eyes), I still prefer little silver discs for music and movies.
  8. Happy Birthday to the man who wrote the music that came out of my nephew’s mouth at the age of two. Star Wars, of course. But two— talk about getting them while they’re young. That’s how memorable his music is.
  9. I find it hard to believe that MV would have mentioned target release dates missed before the scores get released. A lesson learned from mentioning an expanded JFK how long ago and still no release...
  10. I received an e-mail stating that my order has shipped. As it needs to cross the pond, I’m not expecting it for 1-2 weeks. Maybe in time for my birthday. Still gonna have to wait until Apr 16 before fully digging in.
  11. C-SPAN (or C-SPAN 2) is probably the best bet for blather-free broadcast. Off to set my DVR...
  12. I started in the middle and listened to a few episodes (scores I was familiar with). I have now downloaded all of the episodes. I highly recommend them. The approach is amateur in the truest sense of the word: for the love of it. Very little techie talk (e.g.: chord progressions, use of pedal tones, use of modes) which usually comes from co-hosts. Heck, I think he misidentified a recorder as a flute, but I don’t expect him to point out the Wagner tubas in Empire. (Star Wars Oxygen didn’t mention it). And yet, with all I’ve read/heard about Stars Wars, there was somethi
  13. Williams Broughton Eidelman Elmer Bernstein (shook hands with him lefty to lefty and discussed conducting) Bill Kraft (worked a concert with him where he was conducting a piece— we would chat while waiting for the late arriving musicians) Raksin (taught film scoring for two quarters) Also swapped some e-mails with Mrs. Silvestri. Those are the names that immediately sprang to mind.
  14. Why stay up? They can’t be ordered until Tue. I’m going to bed now. For one thing, this is about the time I go to bed every night. And, I’m tired. If I were to try and stay up for a midnight premiere, I’d probably need to French kiss a light socket.* * Kids, don’t try that at home. (Of course, when I climb into bed, I won’t fall asleep until 12:30 — long enough to up when the titles drop.)
  15. How's the music? How's mix? How're the liner notes? The cover art? I could give a shit about it, but my bowels are empty. C'mon on, now. Eye on the prize. When I met Elmer after a concert, I told him I wished I had footage of him conducting, because I got tossed from my conducting class for wanting to do it left-handed.
