The BEST MAN eh....that's a real honor, don't let any nerves get to you, I've seen some really cocked up best man speeches in my time, but somehow, I have faith you'll do well Thor, let us know how this wentsmile

I've almost been a best man once, to a very dear Irish friend of mine Carlo (now how's THAT for a fine "Irish" namewink) Unfortunately He and his fiance broke up big style with only days to go and never got back together....such is life!

Good luck with your "best man" duties tomorrow, Thor! Don't forget to get a few "digs" in, and have a real good time!
I have a feeling that many of us will be raising a glass (or a bottle) to Jerry sometime over this coming weekend, along with a silent tribute and our thanks to the man who gave us so much.

CHEERS to everyone this weekend. I'll raise a glass of wine to celebrate the life and contributions of Jerry Goldsmith!

The wedding went smoothly. After the ceremony in the church, the entire party was transported by ferry (actually three "taxi boats") to an idyllic island outside a small coastal town in the South of Norway. The weather was spectacular as well, albeit a bit windy. There was a wonderful dinner, a tapas (smorgasboard) with the most beautiful and delicious courses you can think of (both meats and seafood).

Although delivered without the aid of intoxication, my speech was quite a success and I got plenty of accolades from the partygoers. I'm kinda relieved that it's over, though.

The only downside was that the arrangers forgot the wedding-cake on the main land!! But we used another, simpler cake instead.

OK, that was the wedding report. smile

Oh, and while I forgot all about cheering for Goldsmith (understandable, given the circumstances), the bride's step-brother was a budding young film composer with whom I had a chat. He had actually studied in the US, under the tutelage of Chris Young at USC and had met several "guest lecturers" like Bernstein, Newton Howard and Raksin. He was also present at Silvestri's LILO AND STITCH recording session - so we had a lot of common film music references (quite unusual here in Norway). He had some opinions on Elfman and Williams that I didn't care for, and we obviously disagreed on the "film music as a stand-alone listen" thing, but I didn't probe deeper into that, as it was nice enough just to have a film music-interested Norwegian to talk to.

...and he was also sorry about Goldsmith's passing, of course. He had a major influence on him.

Thor - let me guess...

Williams is too bombastic? Elfman is just a pop musician?

It's a rainy Friday here in Norway (are we getting the remnants of all the tropical storms now?), but we're approaching the end of the work day over here, and it's beer time at the institute pub at 16.00! smile

There are some people that have invited me on a pub-to-pub round today, but I'm not sure I'm up for it...or can afford it.

In any case: Bottoms up!

Check the Bon Voyage thread, Timmer. I did talk about the trip. So what is your headache secret? Drinkers want to know!

Simple. Drink lots and lots and lots of water before going to bed. Sleep long. Wake up with no headache.
