    One fact you need to factor in is that there IS a flu vaccine. What we are acting against is a flu with no vaccination at all. Let's wait and see how the critical next two weeks in our little Petri dish play out.

    Ollie got a reaction from Edmilson in 2020 Oscars - Best Original Score predictions   
    TROS is a very weak score. There’s nothing that really stands out and grabs you. I blame some of that on the film but Silvestri should have been rewarded with a nomination instead.

    Honestly Endgame was more worthy of a nomination that the TROS score!

    Don't ever send money to a person you haven't actually met for real.
     
    Don't actually show them your junk through pictures or video before you have met them and before you know its appreciated and reciprocated.
     
    Don't blindly trust everything the person is telling you.
     
    Online dating is easy and safe if you stick to these principles.

    Those scams are easy to spot from a mile away. Sorry to say that some people are just so desperate that they follow them blindly.

    For over 30 years of the 88 that you have been around, I have have been enthralled by your music. I have listened to it for countless hours. I have formed many friendships because of it, and it has impacted my life in ways that are simply undeniable. 
     
    Thank you John Williams
     
    Thank you JWFAN.

    Ollie reacted to Jay in The Official La-La Land Records Thread   
    I think the thing with film music is, it's an incredibly wide, deserve spectrum of music that has over 100 years and counting of films to pull from.  You've got orchestral scores, electronic scores, experimental scores, classic scores, huge scores, small scores, video game scores, tv scores, animation scores, complicated scores, simple scores, all kinds of stuff from all kinds of different eras... and everyone has different tastes.  Many people end up wanting scores to all the big movies from their childhood and young adulthood, which for the current forum culture ends up being a lot of late 70s to late 90s scores, but that wasn't always the case.  Some people prefer golden age scores, or silver age scores, or 90s scores, or japanese scores, or whatever else, some people have very narrow ranges, some people love to check out almost everything.
     
    It has never made sense, to me, to ever be disappointed in any label's output, for any reason.  They are licensing what they can, from the studios that will allow them to, from this incredibly diverse 100+ year catalog of music.  Every release they put out is important to SOMEONE, every score is potentially someone's favorite score of all time. None of these labels are in this for the profit, they do it for the passion, and for the huge array of fans who each want different particular scores from these studios' catalogs.  

    I think sometimes when a label puts out a score a vocal portion of a message board really want, or perhaps a few scores that get a lot of attention in a short time, people come to continue to expect more releases that will hit their specific pleasure centers, but it's really unrealistic to ever expect that; With so much ground to cover from such a diverse media, it's only coincidence if one label releases a large portion of your particular score deserves in a certain time frame.
     
    Basically, there's no reason to get yourself hyped and hyped when any label says anything is coming on any certain date, with so many releases coming out every month from so many labels, the likelihood of your particular short checklist of being met is always small.  Better to be ambivalent about what's coming then be pleasantly surprised when it's something you really want, than to expect something particular because you feel its deserved then be crushed again and again when it doesn't come out.

    Everything will come out eventually!  In the meantime, always check out samples to scores you've never heard before to see if there's something new-to-you that you might really enjoy!

    The Resistance in tatters, Kylo embracing the dark side, Rey left to piece together the Resistance and the Jedi, quite literally with the broken Saber.

    I reckon Snoke shouldn't have been axed, instead have it be revealed he was Darth Plagueis returned to correct the error of Palpatine's ways. Keep the Force Dyad and make Rey a literal nobody, or a virgin birth like Anakin as an answer to the rise of the dark side. Like Snoke says: Darkness rises and Light to meet it.
