At this point, this Greenwood fella might want to quit his day job.

Good Evening, Devon & All! This is very good!

How is it that Movie Music can be so interesting when movie trailers are uniformly bad?

Whiplash jolted into brilliant Composition after Micah's show!...

Do I hear a Glenn Gould Groan?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 7:13pm βrian:

@RRabit: But I thought they were supposed to pay *us* to watch ads.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 7:14pm βrian:

In any case, I don't really care that they're ads. But I do care that they pre-contaminate the experience of watching a movie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 7:14pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I listen to too many GarageRawk & vintage Horror/SciFi podcasts - that use old B-Movie trailers: so bad it's good...so my radar's all off anyhow...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 7:15pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Trailers apparently made by completely different people...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 7:16pm βrian:

@RRabit: I can see the appeal of old B-movie trailers for sure.

It's pretty sweet it has Varese Sarabande's entire catalog.
Avatar Tue. 2/27/18 7:40pm Switchblade Batman:

Turned on the radio, and star wars was playing. It has officially been a pretty okay day.
Avatar Tue. 2/27/18 7:40pm Number Six:

Great music! Garbage film.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 7:43pm βrian:

I forgot the Star Wars had music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 7:43pm βrian:

*that*
Avatar Tue. 2/27/18 7:44pm Number Six:

Just think, way back in the '60s "Johnny Williams" was writing music for Lost In Space.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 7:44pm common:

hey!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 7:44pm JakeGould:

Key idea of why “The Last Jedi” stunk: When Luke showed up in “The Empire Strikes Back,” he’s no longer a farmboy and wearing leg warmers and a caftan. But in “The Last Jedi” Rey is still wearing her “I’m a scavenger!” outfit. In fact nobody wore clothes the way adults do. They never changed outfits between the two films.

Disney is keeping these films in adolescence.

Also, I’m older than you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 7:46pm dale:

john williams wrote the lost in space theme and incidental music? it makes sense now that you say it no. 6
Avatar Tue. 2/27/18 7:47pm Switchblade Batman:

Wait really Six? That's something I didn't know but feel like I should.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 7:49pm Linda Lee:

everyone ready to march 4th for the marathon?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 7:49pm ultradamno:

I'm more interested in the Spirit Awards, not because I take it more seriously, but John Mulaney and Nick Kroll are hosting.
Avatar Tue. 2/27/18 7:50pm Number Six:

He wrote the theme and some of the incidental music. They used some studio tracks and I think had some other composers. But I think he did the bulk of it. And yes, he went by Johnny Williams then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 7:51pm Linda Lee:

honestly. so far i like desplat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 7:52pm JakeGould:

Everyone’s a winner!
Avatar Tue. 2/27/18 7:58pm Switchblade Batman:

I catch it in reruns really late at night every so often. I'll have to remember that.

But I think it's his Superman theme is my favorite.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 7:58pm slugluv1313:

@ Linda Lee -- me too!
embarrassed to say that i have yet to see "The Shape of Water" -- even though i have been intrigued ever since i saw the first ad for the film -- !
Avatar Tue. 2/27/18 7:59pm Number Six:

That theme seriously sold that whole film!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 7:59pm Zetti:

Thanks Devon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 8:00pm slugluv1313:

wonderful show -- thank-you, Devon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 8:03pm Linda Lee:

we should both see it. :-)
Avatar Tue. 2/27/18 8:03pm Switchblade Batman:

I still play it when I need to be comforted Six
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 8:08pm slugluv1313:

@Linda Lee -- oh gosh! i thought i was like the only person who had *not* seen it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 8:10pm tikbartok:

Are there any old time listeners who remember some programming from 1985-1986; there was a DJ team with a straight man named Paul and a very obnoxious character whose name I forget. Mainly punk and hardcore and comedy as they interacted with each other. Im sure their show was in the evening
