  1. Netflix's adaptation of the anime series 'Cowboy Bebop'. 


    The style oddly reminds me of The Wachowski's Speed Racer film. As a fan of the anime, I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with the show. I just know people will scrutinize it to the point of absurdity, especially when an adaptation of a beloved animated series is involved.

    The outstanding stuff is exclusively Barry, of course, and its only the usual tip of the hat for the fanboys, but man, you listen up when these OHMSS references come in and ask yourself why current film music is what it is. Is stuff like that not good enough for movies nowadays?

    It's a shame producers/directors will push for references to the classics, but are so rigid in wanting music to be nothing more than nice background wallpaper. I think it just makes these scores sound strange that there are moments of pastiche-driven callbacks that end up feeling alien to the rest of the score. How do you go from melody-driven romanticism to post modern droning sound design?

    And in a phenomenally strange turn of events, Russell T Davies is returning as showrunner! I couldn't be more excited, especially if it means he brings Murray Gold back with him (and thus inspires Mr Gold to release the soundtrack to Series 10).

    This is a bright spot of news in such dark times. Davies' era was my favourite, he always knew how to inject the show with the right amount of humour, warmth, darkness, campiness without ever going too far in one direction.

  4. The score for The Twins by Michiru Ōshima had some very nice Williams-isms that were for the most part buried quite low in the mix. 


    After watching all nine, I think several would be great to see series expanded from them and that's the sense I got - these are essentially pitches or pilot episodes for potential seasons.


    If you're not a fan of anime, these wouldn't appeal to you at all.

    Probably, you are right. They try just to manage our expectations by advertising the movie using the most boring two minutes of the score. Just nobody wants us to get too excited. Makes sense.

    I know. And that was for the brainless eating machine. So, what should this Batman piece then be for?

    It's not DC advertising it, it's Gia sharing it from his personal account. 


    Who gets excited for movies anymore?

    Any word on whether the same issues affect parcels from the EU?


    If US-based orders are now off the table for Australian buyers, it might be worth looking at Music Box Records from now on.


    International flights can't restart soon enough... c'mon 80% double dosed!

    It just depends whether the company you order from offers alternative services from USPS. I usually use DHL which is a lot faster but can be pricey.

    Is there anyone from Australia who knows what the deal is with USPS suspending shipments to Australia? What does it mean for orders placed?

    A combination of no available flights outbound and the fact the Australia Post is struggling to keep up with the influx of parcels. Apparently last month saw more parcels through the system than last year's christmas period.

    Rowling had terrible taste after the earlier books.


    Crimes of Grindelwald made sure everyone knew it.

    Crimes of Grindelwald confirmed to me that what Rowling likes to write most is the sinewy, amorphous intrigue of stories like Half-Blood Prince where there's several mysteries wrapped in one. The problem when you translate this to something like Fantastic Beasts is that you prematurely suck the magic out of the story. The political/mystery elements of Harry Potter were rightfully developed much later in the story, not in the first book like what Rowling has attempted with Beasts.

    That is not true. Viktor Krum is from Bulgaria but Durmstrang is located in Norway or Sweden. Durmstrang is a international school for anyone in Europe. 

    And just to add to that, Wizarding attire is incongruous to the same of what Muggles wear in any period.
