  1. Enjoyed reading about your encounter with the maestro. I met him after a concert in 1990 and thanked him for writing Always. Four months previous to the meeting I tweaked my knee (went to the ER the next day) and when I played that score it eased my pain. Truly showed the healing power of music. And as for others who call themselves big John Williams fans: I'm 6'5" and 270lbs. That's right, there's at least a 95% chance that I'm a bigger John Williams fan than you are. Okay, maybe just more voluminous... Peace. b.
  2. From www.thecityreview.com/olympics.html "... the program was thematically tied together by an 13-year-old skater, Ryne Sanborn, who held a lantern and was inspired by a fire god... " Do you consider your question answered? Bruckhorn, who shouted "Shut up!" when Couric and Costas kept muttering during "Call of the Champions." What is it with American television networks: any music the doesn't have words does't matter? Ugh!
  3. Suggestion for addition: Side A, 2:43 available Binary Sunset (Alternate) 2:19 Side B, 6:37 available Lando's Palace 3:53 The Levitation/ Threepio's Bedtime Story 2:46 This will put you two seconds over 45 min. In my experience in making tapes, this won't be a problem. (But make the silences between selections as short as possible.) Of the three pieces listed, the one I like the most is Lando's Palace. It has so many of the main themes, all in once piece. BTW, thanks for the springboard, I was thinking about making a tape for my seven year old nephew, and well... I think I got me some ideas now. b.
  4. What, no word from Harry about his pending attendence? Bruckhorn, who believes the "Location: Ohio" on Harry's posts, but thinks "Regular Poster" is an extreme understatement.
  5. Okay, this just got transfered to the trading board... Frosty: Full Score (JW Signature editions, unless noted, no order): Three Pieces from Schindler's List Raider's March Hymn to the Fallen (from Saving Private Ryan) Happy Birthday Variations Dry Your Tears, Afirka (from Amistad) The Olympic Spirit Theme from The Lost World The Cowboys Overture Adventures on Earth (from E.T.) Three Holiday Songs from Home Alone (Somewhere in My Memory; Star of Bethlehem; and Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas for Chorus and Orchestra) Suite from The Phantom Menace (The Flag Parade, Anakin's Theme, The Adventures of Jar-Jar, and Duel of the Fates) Suite from Star Wars Saga (Main Title, Princess Leia's Theme, The Imperial March, Yoda's Theme, and Throne Room & End Title) Suite from Star Wars (original-- Main Title, The Little People Work, Princess Leia's Theme, The Battle, and Throne Room & End Titles) The Five Sacred Trees (solo bassoon line with piano reduction) Anything interest you Frosty? Bruckhorn, who needs to send Hal Leonard more money for all of the recent additions.
  6. The 2-disc set was issued without track titles.
  7. Well, Frosty, what enticement is needed for you to complete your last sentance? Bruckhorn, who's curiousity is piqued...
  8. That's what the man said. I didn't see it. Bruckhorn, who's admitted to not bieng the most observant person in the world.
  9. I just tried that. A full orchestral score version is not currently in print. I'm hoping some one can confirm that it even exists. And if so, in what form and to please present all pertient information about the publication so I might be able to track down a used verion of it, or possibly an intra-library loan. Thanks for the info on how to insert the headphone emoticon. The second posting I did, I finally noticed the "View more emoticons" button. I'm real observent at times... b.
  10. Harry, you are correct. After I tried to upload it I noticed that the max size is 8k. (Which explains your avatar not being animated, right?) The smallest I can get the image I want to use is 12k. Ugh! I'm working on it. Hector, the one with Cruise shouting, uh hum, stuff. Bruckhorn, who needs to go to sleep now, so I'll have one less thing to blame my bad golf game on. (And if you saw the first version of this post, you'd agree, it's time for me to go . 'night y'all.)
  11. I could see Chewie making a cameo along the lines that the Falcon appeared in AOTC (at the Naboo dock when Anakin and Padme arrive-- at least that's what was said by Lucas on one of the "Behind the Scenes" featurettes that were on last week). Bruckhorn, who thought "When nine hundred years old I become, kick butt like Yoda, I will not." when first seeing a certain scene in AOTC.
  12. Concerning A Beautiful Mind: I thought it to be a major disappointment. It was nominated for Best ORIGINAL Score and there's that same motif that he's used ad naseum since Aliens (and probably long before that). And the best part is: it's lifted from the Adagio from The Gayne Ballet Suite by Aram Khatchaturian which was featured in 2001 - A Space Odyssey. Uh, that was public domain back then (in the mid eighties), but when the Iron Curtain fell, copyright protection was established for all of the items subject to copyright protection (works less than 75 years old-- I worked at a classical radio station at the time and we had to start paying for playing those pieces). Bruckhorn, who loves Horner's music through The Rocketeer, but after that... yeah I have it, but how often do I listen to it?
  13. Yeah, I think she was whiter than Casper and I was redder than Fidel Castro. Heck, Hector, I might know where you can get your hands on that disc your looking for. Bruckhorn, who hopes his avatar works
  14. Tusken Raiders sounds more intimidating. Also, remember, A New Hope takes place after Attack of the Clones. Isn't possible that over the course of the years, political correctness arrived on Tatooine? Uh, it's possible, right? Or maybe they shed their war-like ways and settled down. Or, Ah, hell, Lucas thinks the Anakin and Padme's Theme is the first Love theme from the Star Wars saga. Despite all the money he's made, he doesn't have enough to pay for a continuity supervisor. (See: episode 4 of Clerks: The Animated Series for details.) Bruckhorn, raving, or ranting, or prattling on. Hell, I'm a guy, I'm not supposed to be in touch with my feelings!
  15. I got a copy of a one disc boot of Born on the Fourth of July and it was quite the surprise when it gets to the end of the last track and suddenly there's Tom Cruise's voice screaming "Penis!" over and over again. Of course that's when my mother entered the room. I don't know who was more shocked. Yeah, I was thirty at the time, but there's just something things that Mom doesn't need to hear. So, if you get a boot of BOTFOJ, beware. It might be best to listen to it the first time with headphones. Bruckhorn Nothing, my CD player stopped.
  16. Yes, what is it that you are considering bidding on? Also curious, and not likely to check out e-bay (and you know why, Harry). Bruckhorn, who figured out where more Emoticons are. (I swear these are the NEW glasses I'm wearing.) A.I. Promo
  17. What is this I see, but somebody stating that they have the score for Han & Leia's Theme? I have a piano arrangement of the piece, but have not heard about a full orchestral version for it being available. (BTW, I'm talking sheet music here.) Please give me details on it. Publisher, ISBN number, etc... You know, DETAILS. I think it is an absouletly wonderful arrangement as a concert piece with the climax being reached and quickly underscored with dissonence. Gorgous! Bruckhorn, who once wrote a short waltz with a bar of 4 in it, just to mess with people. And is now wondering where the emoticon with headphones went to... N.P. "A.I."
