Current Music: Giacchino - The Incredibles
Tags:

After Friday's soul-wrenchingly slow afternoon in which I was was saved by certain tongue-swallowing through Giacchino's Speed Racer and Star Trek* back-to-back (Giacchino made me ache for the release date of the Star Trek DVD), I've been looking for MORE MUSIC to drone out the banality of those around me by submersing myself into abject pornography for the ears. Mind music. Rousing orchestral arrangements which keep my mind sharp while simultaneously raising my spirits to a frenzy in which I'll feel I can overcome anything.

Music like that, however, is few and far between.

I've been visiting Jamendo a lot lately, which is beginning to depress me as I do believe I've downloaded the best they have to offer. I want more Bear McCreary. What's he been doing? I hope he's been composing, because I'm ready for something more. I decided now would be a good time to pick up the only CD of his I don't own, Rest Stop: Dead Ahead. Yeah, about that...$50. The last time I spent $40 on a music CD (A fantastic tip from lehah, The Adventures of Indiana Jones, Volume 4) my wife nearly shot me (I don't even have the physical media yet to Volumes 1, 2 & 3).

So I scoured my hard drive for stuff I know I've squirreled away for a rainy day. That downpour has come, in the form of an emotional vacuum. I need to fill it. And I wasn't disappointed. I found stuff I've been waiting for time to listen to but never got around to adding to my library. Some tarballs, some bootlegs, some rips, some compositions by one of my readers, and finally ripping Let Me Tell You of the Days of High Adventure.

Sat on my ass and drank beer most of the weekend. Actually *relaxed* (I don't get to do that too often). Coupled with the hard, pipe-hitting week I had, I'm shielding myself this week with the armor of the songs on my iPod, and I will be victorious.

Bring it on, Monday.





*And Joel Goldsmith. He helped me through a little of Friday as well. His Stargate: Atlantis score is brilliant, if not a little "formatted for your television." I hear great tracks in there which are sadly "Made for TV" short. But I try to sprinkle Joel wherever I go ;)

Reminds me of a certain Guild War character I often see. Very well done indeed!

Indeed I did. And catttitude wanted me to let you know how much she enjoyed it as well. She was equally surprised, that is, coming from you, that it wasn't pornographic in nature.

Did you check out the website for the show?

"She was equally surprised, that is, coming from you, that it wasn't pornographic in nature."

WTF? Was the Bob Hope video pornographic? Was the ghetto girl that regretted voting for Obama pornographic? I think I've seriously and erroneously been misjudged.

No, I didn't check out the website. And while I appreciate your examples of sainthood, I think she was referring more to the pictures you posted in galinda822's journal of the cleanly shaven smooth mons Venus of young women in your humorous but misguided "bald" jokes.

Bear McCreary is doing the score for the new show Trauma.

Let me know how the soundtrack for Rest Stop is.

Do you have the Master & Commander soundtrack/score? It's quite excellent.

Good to know, thanks! And I don't think I'll be getting Rest Stop anytime soon :(

I'll have to check my iTunes database for Master & Commander. I still don't know if iTunes new "Home Sharing" will hop routers to my wireless side or even if the iTunes app on the Touch will support it. Basic questions to me but I've been unable to definitively find the answer, and you can be sure it wasn't in Apple's "Everything You Need to know about iTunes" page. That was written for my mother. Or maybe Tomas.

If I find it I'll give it a whirl. Thanks for the suggestion.

Giacchino made me ache

Yes, I also find him quite attractive. ;)

The ache is sated November 17th. That's some hella foreplay.

I have some compositions. I think I'll write one just for you! A long instrumental piece. My wheels are spinning.

Intriguing! Steve Vai instrumental or James Horner instrumental?
