It's just a minor nuissance, and perhaps I'm the only one who feels that way.

I'm not a fan of gigantic cover scans, either.

Thor, do you have an e-mail address so I can tell you off-board where to go and how to get there? Man, you're such a bummer. Really. No... really. A tedious bummer.

Remember when you peed all over the threads we all created specifically for hi-rez cover art, and you said, "ooooh, I don't get it, I thought that's what the Now Playing thread was for"? Remember that, Thor? Well, why do you think those threads were created, Thor? It was to post hi-rez cover art for people to appreciate. Cover art that several of us actually spend a lot of time working on to make it look so good and so people can download it in the best form possible. Absolutely, positively NO Christmas or birthday presents for you anymore, buddy.


Whoa....chill, man! It was just a comment, as I found it a bit annoying to have these gigantic pictures appear that I actually have to scroll down to watch in total, that take long to load and that even screw up the thread interface sometimes. I'm sure they would look great on a wall or something, but when I started this whole trend of just posting soundtrack covers, it was more to let people tell us what they're playing at any given time; not an excercise in high-res, gigantic cover art. But you do what you will. It's just a minor nuissance, and perhaps I'm the only one who feels that way.


Thor, nice attempt at acting all casual about this, but you've been griping about it all over the place for a while now. When people tried to start their own threads specifically designed for hi-rez cover art, you shot those down as well. You've been griping about a lot of things for a while now, so don't act all doe-eyed and innocent. Your post was specifically and transparently worded in such a broken-record way that you knew exactly what you were doing. Nice try. Also, nice try for the pat on your own back about starting this thread. I've got to be honest, I'm starting to become one of the many now. I've resisted for a loooong time, trying to give you the benefit of the doubt, thinking of you as misunderstood, but I'm becoming so sick of seeing your name on threads anymore. In my opinion, it just brings the board (and one's day) completely down. There's never any insight in your comments, but rather just negativity and an oddly self-centered view of things. No wisdom, no finesse, just boring self-serving comments. All in my humble opinion, of course.

Feel free to post any retort you wish. It won't be returned. I've said what I needed to say. You now know with complete clarity where I'm coming from on this, and I'll leave you to do whatever end-running you feel you need to do.

In any case, sorry to the rest of you who are here simply to have fun, like I used to be, posting your cover art and sharing. And while I've let myself get down to Thor's level, I also felt a need to say what I feel. But man, I'm becoming a grouch. Too bad.

Please, return to the fun of The Return of Now Playing.

Stop being so melodramatic, Accidental. It was a MINOR NUISSANCE and just a polite request to keep this thread as easily read as possible. This is all just supposed to be a fun thread where you can let "your hair down" and get a peak into people's listening habits and collections. Now it's obviously up to you if you don't want to pay any attention to that request, but you make it out to be as if I had murdered your kid or something. Sheesh. Have a drink and lighten up. It's Saturday! smile

We now return to our regularly scheduled music:



I'm in a sort of Elmer B mood today.

Disc 1
Currently on cut 4 the Gone With The Wind suite.


Now cut 5 the Stagecoach suite and when that finishes I'm off to bed.
What a year 1939 was for movies and movie music...Now there is a theme for Silva or some other label. The Films of 1939

GWTW, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Wuthering Heights, Stagecoach, just scratches the surface.

Disc 2

It looks like the track listing on Soundtrack Collector is wrong. The last 3 tracks listed on Disc 1 are in fact the first 3 on disc 2. Lawrence of Arabia is cut 6 not cut 3 for instance. I will have to send an email to the SC crew and make the corrections.

Ah, CINEMA CENTURY, one of my earliest film music compilations that weren't composer-driven (alongside THE CULT FILES, also from Silva). I had the 3CD version, not the 4CD version that was subsequently released. After a while, though, I got most of the "classic" selections on their respective soundtracks and I gave the set to my father one Christmas. I think he still has it, but I don't think he's played it very often.

I have both Cinima Century(the 4 disc set which explains the track differences) and Cinema Century 2000. I find the Silva releases good overviews of various topics or in the case of these 2 sets the History of film and film music.
I am fairly fond of EPICS, The Crimson Pirate, Warriors of the Silver Screen and Mask of Zorro, for instance.
I also hadn't listened to them in a long while as they are housed in my Sony 200cd changer which one of my cats managed shut down until I could get behind the entertainment center and plug the cd changer back in.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (Hans Zimmer)


Herr Zimmer's music is usually not my cup of tea, but I love this score.

Sadly due to a too tight budget I missed Dave Grusin conducting the DSO this weekend. So next up when I hit the road is:
