    My wife did something very nice for me, or is still doing, she is making a calender for me with film composers birthdays on it, like what a film composer calender might look like with pictures and everything.

    WOW!! now I married the right woman.

    I was about to say ''that could sell really well!'' but then realised I don't know a single person in real life that likes film music. Still a nice idea though.

    Actually it would do best selling on line, but I wouldnt sell it, the copyright thing (cause there are pictures on it of the composers) there would be someone somewhere to fuss, "my picture, my picture, I want royalties, I want royalties". So he or she will get their half a cent for everyone that sells , hehe .

    Why the ==> shame <== icon? ( or is it that it's not a "girlfriend" to share your passion? wink )

    My mum ( rip ) loved a good selection of film scores and when I was a teenager still living at home she would often request I play something by John Williams, Ennio Morricone or John Barry though her absolute favourites were Ben Hur, King Of Kings and El Cid by Miklos Rozsa.....excellent taste by anyones standards cool

    p.s. My very first girlfriend HATED film scores of any kind.

    I should have somehow emphasized the slightest in my post. Her interest is actually limited to one incident when she listened to the American Beauty score by Thomas Newman in her car on the way to work. She said, "I liked that CD you left in the car."

    Then she gave it me back. rolleyes

    About girlfriends: Well you have to work it around a little bit, make things happen but not in a pushy way, if you know what i mean. Make her a couple of REALLY nice compilation with several no too long but sweet pieces that you like too and which DO mean a lot to you as well; music with lots of easily-discernible melodies and "catchy" tones overall (not to be mistaken for a lack of quality or something, quite the contrary) and write a nice, honest dedication on the cover. Play it in the background while you're together, talk to her a bit about it but don't get too geeky heheh. She'll love it, i found that Desplat (stuff like the main theme from SYRIANA or all the slower, melodic renditions of the main theme from LUST, CAUTION or stuff like THE ULTIMATE GIFT / BECOMING JANE / EVENING etc are real winners most usually).
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    I just go around 'converting' people, and I've been pretty successful at uni so far!

    First you have to get rid of an unfortunate innate prejudice most people have when it comes to film music. They assume that if a film is unworthy, childish, not-for-grown-ups and the like, the music is worthless. Get rid of that and the possibilities suddenly open up!

    I've got a few of my friends liking most of John Williams "classic" stuff, John Powell, some of Horner's 90's scores and a few other scores. (Goldenthal might be stretching it a bit!)
  2. When I started a new role-playing group in 1991 there was this girl I barely knew. At the beginning of the game, I used the title theme of Ladyhawke (don´t ask why). During the very first seconds, even before that cheesy rhythm starts, that girl turns around to me with eyes wide open, smiles at me and sighs "Ladyhawke...?".

    This year, we´ll be married for thirteen years...

    Yup. Though she belongs to the "nice & beautiful" faction (aka The Village; scores like AVP:R would make her scream in agony), she is perfectly able to deal with some really geeky stuff.

    I like it in the context of the movie. Couldn´t imagine any other score. We both love the movie dearly, and this score is a very important part of it.

    Obviously not alone Thor? cool

    To this day I've still not heard the score or seen the film? And I still do because of all the fuss, mostly at the FSM board in years past.
