    Bayesian got a reaction from MikeH in What's John Williams' diet?   
    My first thought was, if it’s good enough for JW, it’s good enough for me. (Not that I drink whisky, but I could learn.) Then I found out it costs like $200 per 750mL bottle. So, no.

    Williams is a drinker but with good genes.  Like my neighbor who lived to be 95, he would have a shot of whisky as a night cap every night.  A nice stiff drink at the end of the day is part of his routine.  He likes Johnnie Walker Blue Label.  Don Williams mentioned he usually enjoys a glass each night.  Definitely not a drunk, but I interpreted it as sort of a refined gentlemen having dinner then sitting down over the piano with a drink in their hand when the brothers would get together.  Our Johnny is one cool cat.

    I don’t like Zack Snyder at all, and I had the lowest expectations for this film. Going in expecting the worst allowed me to enjoy the action for what it was. I don’t think it’s a good movie or anything, but liked seeing Batman and Superman beating the shit out of each other for a little bit.

    Today the NY Times has published an article with recommendations from notable people meant to help the listener fall in love with the sound of the cello.

    It's just a short blurb, but very nice to read Williams talking about music he loves.  It feels very "on brand" for him to pick a Brahms piece

    Are there 2 official versions of The Patriot Suite?  FSO is different from Lights Camera Music and transitions better in the "colonial cause" cue that seems tacked on in the Lockheart version

    I skipped or condensed sentences here and there to keep my sanity, freeform not word-by-word prerehearsed, studied and memorised speech can be a bit messy anyway. Great concert at the Music Academy, 5 minute applause, fine performance. Double Trouble is indeed impeccable and sections of Quidditch Third Year were on par with the original. I loved the striped breakdown demonstrations.

    Bayesian reacted to Romão in The Official Christopher Nolan Church Thread   
    One of things I admire most about it is that even though it is a period piece, it never shoves it down the viewers throat. Here you never see the CGI enhanced establishing shots showing how London looked in the XIXth century, nor does it draw attention to any particular technological or behavioural staple we nowadays associate with the period. It's not shot as period piece at all. It's shot as contemporary tale, as if the current movie making technology was available back then. I find it very refreshingly restrained in that sense
