Recommended Posts

I made these up with a friend of mine. Hope you like them. :D

If you are caught singing the lyrics to Something Wicked This Way Comes.

If In your spare time you count off every score John Williams has ever done in chronological order.

If you find yourself having another nightmare about the Prisoner of Azkaban score being delayed.

If you hate Don Davis for scoring JP3.

If you compare real life situations to John Williams track titles.

If you pay $200 for an LP of Gidget Goes to Rome.

If you know what Gidget Goes To Rome is.

If you conduct your stereo in a black turtleneck and khaki pants.

If you can count off every nominated score by John Williams and what it lost too.

If you want to kick someone in the face for thinking John Williams is a guitarist.

If you spend all afternoon making one of these friggin' lists.

If you are caught singing the lyrics to Something Wicked This Way Comes.

Haven't been caught yet...

If In your spare time you count off every score John Williams has ever done in chronological order.

Nope.

If you find yourself having another nightmare about the Prisoner of Azkaban score being delayed.

No. Great that you bring it up. Thanks man. Now I won't be able to sleep tonight. :(

If you hate Don Davis for scoring JP3.

Nah.

If you compare real life situations to John Williams track titles.

Hmm... No.

If you pay $200 for an LP of Gidget Goes to Rome.

Er...

If you know what Gidget Goes To Rome is.

Again... No.

If you conduct your stereo...

Yes. :D

...in a black turtleneck and khaki pants.

Ah, no.

If you can count off every nominated score by John Williams and what it lost too.

Not yet.

If you want to kick someone in the face for thinking John Williams is a guitarist.

Yes! Yes! Yes!

If you spend all afternoon making one of these friggin' lists.

What about if you wanted to dress up as him for halloween.  ;)  

HPFAN_2 - *Cough* Shouldn't have said that.

If somebody dressed up as Peter Jackson for Halloween, would they mistake him for Vangelis?

BTW, conducting the stereo is the only thing I've been guilty of on that list. I doubt Steef hasn't done that.

Because I've been John Williams geek a hell of alot longer than almost anyone else here, including Ricard, & KM, while Alex I believe is fairly close.

You know Ren...I've always had the urge to take some John Williams music, crank it up, role down the windows and drive strait through the "ghetto" part of Providence...I wouldn't call myself a John Williams Nerd for doing that, i'd call myself crazy!

Hmmm.... because I've grown listening to his music, and it's now an essential part of my personality :)

i couldn't live without his music

(well, my reply was serious, but as Joe said, Justin did a great job ;) ).

The statement was:

If you conduct your stereo in a black turtleneck and khaki pants.

I mostly conduct in my underwear, or completely naked.

Please, no puns about the baton. :roll:

That postcount is the absolute proof that this MB is still buggy, somewere a zero must have been added.

I'm hoping I can have both

Alternatively you can invest in a back up power supply for your PC.

I see no reason why Andreas cannot just do the work he has to do very quickly, and between 01:00 and 05:45 AM (GMT+1:00)

Still looking for my post about that grill.

If you know what someone is talking about when they say you are a Lier.

Then he's either very bad at writing in English, or he's an Aussie. (or he's Dutch and talking about a Lyre)

My own personal one is being the only one who clapped when Williams' said CE3K was one of his favorite scores at a discussion after a concert.

If you want to kick someone in the face for thinking John Williams is a guitarist.

Justin

Can I also want to kick people in the face who think Bette Midler wrote "Somewhere In My Memory"? ;)

Btw, iTunes actually has a Mason Williams album that pops up on John Williams' artist page. It's probably just a computer glitch, but it still makes me mad.

Great idea.

If you are caught singing the lyrics to Something Wicked This Way Comes.

Never heard it yet.

If In your spare time you count off every score John Williams has ever done in chronological order.

I'm bad at counting, so I just collect them, look at them, and listen to the ones I like. ;)

If you find yourself having another nightmare about the Prisoner of Azkaban score being delayed.

I could care less about that. My nightmare is if Williams died before finishing every Star Wars and Indy movie. And composing a score to a film about Christ (Dammit for missing that latest opportnity!)

If you hate Don Davis for scoring JP3.

I don't hate him, but I don't like it either. JP3 sucked, so no biggie for not scoring it. Davis did do 1 great cue, so at leats we got that out of it. :)

If you compare real life situations to John Williams track titles.

I've done that alot. I also write and create my own stories to WIlliams music. This is why sometimes I prefer to heasr the music before I see the films they were composed to.

If you pay $200 for an LP of Gidget Goes to Rome.

One exists? If I had $200 to spend on it I still wouldn't pay for it. I'll trade for a copy of it though. ;)

If you know what Gidget Goes To Rome is.

I think I have it on tape.

If you conduct your stereo in a black turtleneck and khaki pants.

No. But when I was a a 5-6 year old kid I did used to conduct the stero. Normal kid clothes though.

If you can count off every nominated score by John Williams and what it lost too.

Nope. I could care less about awards shows. They sicken me. If I want to see people win and lose, I'll watch sports. You can't judge the arts in such a cride manner as those awards shows do.

If you want to kick someone in the face for thinking John Williams is a guitarist.

Neither are well known enough amongst the plebians.

If you're daily routine consists of 'get up, go on computer to JWFan.'  

Add coffee to that. I used to do that more bu then I got a girlfriend and work. That's not a knock, that's just the reason why I can't do it as much as I used to. ;)

If you skip meals to continue debates with JWFaners.  

I USED to do this, but when I realized how much time I was spending debating, I had to back off, LOL!

If you display JWFan merchandise (such as T-shirts, mugs, hats) in your avatar.  

LOL! Should I scan my autographed pic of Williams? For me, I'll just keep my self-portrait for now. :)

If you would rather see King Mark's latest 'Who is the *-----*est Poster' than go out with friends.  

Or, you had King Mark stay at your house for a week and went chick-hunting with him! (Well, 6 days before he outstayed his welcome with your mom! LOL!!! Love ya' Mark!)

If you have over 6824 posts and live in australia  

He's disqualified because he doesn't buy anything.

If you have a job and loving family and still would rather be on JWFan.  

Why not all three?

If a power outage means possible suicide.  

Never been that bad. Although I did get mad at losing some rather lengthy posts a few times! LOL!

If when Andreas closes the site for upgrades you spend the day listening to JW CD's with shaking hands and glazed eyes while mumbling "it's got to come back..."  

Actually, to me that means a break. :P

If you spend most of your time pouring through the old records of previous threads on the EZ and Ikon board.  

Ah, that was my heyday. You younger whippersnappers have stolen my glory!

If you know what someone is talking about when they say you are a Lier.  

If you spend all afternoon....yeah yeah!

We need a JWFAN.NET Dictionary for our homegrown terms like that one. :P

Hey, I'm 29 (30 in May) and I was a Williams fan since I was around 4-6 years old. Does "Percentage of life" count? ;)

If while watching movies with really annoying scores, you can?t even pay attention to the story for imagining what JW might have done at that spot.

Heh, or if you complain to everyone about it being down even if they don't know what it is.

That's weird.

Me too. I do that for almost every film that I watch that wasn't scored by Williams.

Not exactly, the dutch word for lyre is lier, as Marc really should know.

Oh, a lier. Yeah, I know what that is, I just had no idea it was called a lyre in English.

Oh well, back to the tree of Woe, i guess.

Figures.
