  1. Well, I'm going out to touch grass, before I descend down a Cartesian path to oblivion...
  2. So, does this mean that we haven't actually been wasting our time here?
  3. And how about a celebrity endorsement...
  4. He was edgier in 1995—before he became cuddly and grandfatherly, and began wearing flat caps and knit cardigans...
  5. 'Superman'-related? I hear some 'The Trip to Earth' in it.
  6. Yeesh. That's pretty weak. On behalf of all Canadians, I apologize.
  7. Maybe if Spielberg was artistically involved and had directed the short, he might've asked Williams to participate. But he was only hired as "on-camera talent". He bowed out as artistic director of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, but Los Angeles will be hosting in 2028... Imagine if he was asked to direct, and Williams was able to write some music? Well, we can dream.
  8. That describes me and 'The Secret of NIMH'. And I love 'Legend'.
  9. It's been a long time since I read it, but yeah, I seem to recall that Gottlieb gave his own, perhaps less colourful account of that incident in his book. Spielberg mentioned it in Laurent Bouzereau's 20th anniversary documentary.
  10. Somehow I got sucked into watching the original 'Police Academy' last night... The gags are short, and it moves along at a brisk pace. Some laugh-out-loud moments, if you enjoy that kind of ribald humour, but some of the jokes would definitely not fly today. It was actually nicely lensed too. Plus, a great, toe-tapping theme that reminded me of Goldsmith's 'Patton'.
  11. Done! JWFan—unite! And push it past 50,000 signatures!
  12. Reminds me of that anecdote Spielberg told about the Orca accidentally sinking while filming 'Jaws'... They were scrambling to get the actors off the boat, when the soundman protested: "Fuck the actors! Save the sound department!"
  13. So I've been seeing promos for the summer olympics with Steven Spielberg... He'll narrate a four-minute short that'll kick off the opening ceremony, and I'm wondering if Williams might've supplied some new music for it.
