    OMG the catastrophy of this 2 hours finale Episode.
     
    At least two times near the very end I felt an unforgivable Coitus interruptus.

    She was a role model for those who were used to seeing black women on TV as maids and servants, not equals to their male crewmates.

    Positivatee reacted to Yavar Moradi in Which are your Top 5 Basil Poledouris scores?   
    Just over half the score is unreleased. (I have a film rip which runs under 62 minutes, while the original album's score portion runs under 30.)
     
    That said, I can honestly tell you as a huge Poledouris fan: the unreleased music is nothing to write home about. Practically every highlight is on the original album, and the unreleased stuff, although there are a few nice bits, is mostly not of great interest (most isn't orchestral, but is slight variations on the dated synthy friendship material). This is a rare Poledouris score that to me would not play stronger in complete form, even if I'd certainly buy an expansion and there might be a few more cues I'd add in to my playlist.
     
    Now... I *also* have a complete film rip of the Poledouris score for Free Willy 2...it runs almost 65 minutes. And every note of it is fantastic. It takes the themes of the original score and builds on them with interesting new developments. It introduces a few new themes and integrates and develops them perfectly with the older material. It is sweeping, epic orchestral ocean-y music, with some neat new organic elements like acoustic guitar and less of a synthy feel. Seriously, every cue is wonderful and all that's been released of this amazing score is a paltry 10.5 minutes (three cues) on the original soundtrack album. The Free Willy scores on either side of it have had almost 3x as much music released, but this is the best of the three scores hands down!
     
    So that's what you should be pining after, trust me. If it ever comes out people will be blown away. IMO it's the most important Poledouris, expansion or premiere, that could be released at this point.

    If you want to see Nichelle Nichols play against type, check out Truck Turner, where she plays a Madame with the tongue of a viper.  She's phenomenal in it.
     
    I am deeply saddened, yet relieved as her final years were said to be not quite so glorious with here conservatorship bordering on elder abuse.  May she rest in power, deservedly so.
     
    I will be watching the documentary on her life on Paramount +
     
    I had the pleasure of meeting her a few years ago.  I was dressed in my Batman 66 costume at a Convention, and I guess it amused her because she requested a picture of me with her.  And yes, she was as kind and sweet as you would expect.
     

     
    I think for me, one of the most amazing things about her life is that post Star Trek, she worked for NASA literally scouting out and recruiting female and minority astronauts.  That's pretty profound, and on top of her legendary decision to remain an icon on TV for black people at the urging of MLK... she is more than just an icon.  She was and will continue to be, arguably the most influential of all the Star Trek actors.

    So it looks like the terrible sounding KOTOR remake is dead in the water. The most interesting note was that this lines up with a rumor posted on Reddit months ago:
     

     
    So I guess they wanted to fart this one out this year. Very on brand for how Star Wars is treated these days. It's like how they shipped a broken KOTOR2 port on Switch. I guess they know a certain number of people will buy it regardless, sight unseen.

    Primal is one of those special shows that I know would appeal to kids. Dinosaurs! Cavemen! Action! 
     
    Then the one dinosaur rips another dinosaur into pieces and sprays blood all over the caveman. 
     
    Nope. This is adult stuff. And it's glorious.

    I always use mp3 tag, super great and straightforward to use. Then I use a different program to sync to my phone since iTunes is a pain in the butt.
     
    Also, that break before “Entrance to the Park” is very satisfying.
