    Fully vaccinated. I work in a biomedical company so I got vaccinated back in Feb. Got the Moderna shots.

    I bought this and have listened through it and this is a real slog, but there’s a decent hourlong album in there I think (one that uses the suites at the end as its bones).

    Also interesting from that interview...
     
    Mikkelsen: "Interesting enough, again a little like Riders of Justice, there is kind of a genre mix in Indiana Jones always. There is something that is a little larger-than-life, almost back to the 30s with a Peter Lorre kind of feel, and then you have Indiana Jones who kind of is a straight man. But he does produce a lot of funny and interesting things, but there are different character genres in some of those films."

    I'd welcome Elfman's Sommersby. Another unusual but warm Elfman score. That would be great to have.

    According to the person who runs this site, Intrada‘s Scissorhands is complete:
     
    https://chrono-score.blogspot.com/2015/12/edward-scissorhands.html?m=1
     
    They don’t use any of the isolated score in their playlist anymore; it’s all Intrada’s release.  The only thing not on Intrada’s release are a few cassette tape demos exclusive to the Elfman/Burton box.
     
    Honestly, it’s such a slight expansion and the OST is a much better listening experience anyway.

    Not too bad!  Back in the before times we went every week at a sports bar and made it to their tournament of champions (across all of the trivia company’s bars and restaurants) where we placed third.  We’ve been doing this Zoom thing every week basically since the lockdown with a different group of friends and we are the winningest team, but he did a 1 year anniversary tournament of champions and we placed third in that too.  Our team chokes under pressure when they amp up the difficulty, I guess!
    Btw @Jayor anyone else, if you’re into trivia and are looking for something to do or want to play against us, I can link you to my buddy Alan’s.  It’s every Wednesday.  It’s 10 rounds of 5 questions each, and usually runs from 9-11pm EST which includes 5 breaks to talk through answers with your team (although my team answers together on Discord as the rounds go and uses the breakout room breaks just to bullshit) .  There is no prize for winning except bragging rights and it’s free to play (although there is a suggested $5 PayPal donation since this is my buddy’s only income since March of last year).  Every other week is general knowledge trivia, and the alternate weeks are themed (this week is just movies, which he does once every month or two - other previous themes included the MCU, Lord of the Rings (books and movies), Arrested Development, Seinfeld, Disney, etc).

    John Williams - The Cowboys (Varese Deluxe)
     
    I wanted to listen to How To Steal A Million when I got to work today after hearing Mike discuss it on the Indycast podcast special, but when I got to work I found the oldest score I actually had on my hard drive there was The Cowboys, so I went with that
     
    This is such a rarely-discussed gem of John Williams' early career.  The theme bed is so rich!  And they are all very good!
     
    I think I put my finger on why the new main program might feel too long for some - including me at times!  It's the extended roadshow presentation aspect, having the overture, the act 1 break ending of Lonhair's threat, the Entre'act, and the Exit Music - it's too much.  Especially opening with the Overture and Main Title back to back, it's sets up expectations for grand, up tempo adventure music to be the core of things, but then the score really slows down for a while before building up again.  A shorter playlist with no overture, entr'acte, or exit music (and the alternate Longhair's Threat instead of the 70mm version) will be how I listen next time
     
    Overall though, a good score!

    mstrox got a reaction from Cerebral Cortex in John Powell's SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY (2018) - Deluxe Edition release coming November 2020   
    I’m at the point now that I wouldn’t mind seeing what Zimmer would do in the Star Wars world, given the right project.  With Giacchino and Powell and especially Ludwig’s work, the edges are already blurred for what it means to be a Star Wars score, even if you don’t consider the animated/video game work.  Someare great, some less so.  (Id more prefer that Powell become the new house composer if Williams isn’t interestsd, but whatever).

    I agree with more Solo, although I’m sure some don’t (when I started typing this an hour ago before I got sidetracked, I coulda predicted Stu’s response  )!  I thought Solo was good fun, and I’d love to see some of the new characters like Q’ira and Enfys Nest explored in more depth.  The fact that they haven’t popped up much or at all in books, comics, etc. in any meaningful way means to me that they’ll probably pop up again elsewhere - maybe the Lando D+ series, Book of Boba (Q’ira) and/or maybe Enfys in the republic commandos show that is presumably missing a female lead now.

    It goes to show that they’re not joking - only two people know the actual results of the awards before the envelopes are opened.  A big swing like that can go awry really easily.

    I recall Civil War being good enough, just a letdown after the excellent Winter Soldier.  Too busy!  Apparently I didn’t retain much, because when we watched those Disney+ catch-up shorts before WandaVision and Falcon/Winter Soldier, a ton of stuff from that movie seemed completely new to me.
     
    While it comes down to Iron Man vs. Cap, the movie is really “everyone vs. everyone else,” so I’m also not convinced it fits the theme per se.  if it weren’t there, the clear winner would be Freddy vs. Jason for me.
