What is something that would surprise us about yourself (that has to do with film scores)?

For example, you listen to them in alphabetical order because you are kinda OCD.

Or your favorite is Jerry Goldsmith, but you only have 5 of his scores.

Or you know that if your house was on fire, you would rescue your CDs before your kids.

Or................ Or what?

Not sure if this is too personal but....

If a girl I ask out on a date is not into (I'll say symphonic music) - because the sound of a symphony orchestra is the greatest invention in the universe....

My pick up line is.... "what music do you like?"

If she answers - "anything really" for example - then I know she doesn't care about my greatest passion.

So I don't bother getting involved with her any deeper than that, as I know - soon, either I won't be able to tolerate her music, or vice versa.

Symphonic Film Scores - and listening to them are better than "you know what!"

One way I have of "drawing a bead" on a city I'm visiting is to go to their public library and check out their soundtrack collection.

(Boston, by the by, has a surprising number of releases on Varese...)

Finding a girl with similar tastes in music I consider to be only a pipe dream. I know that whoever I end up with will probably like the pop music of the day that is on the radio and that is very hard for me to accept. I honestly could not name one pop song of the last 20 years. And this is a big problem for me because most people like to play some kind of music or white noise in the background and I hate 99% of what is played on the radio.

I can't help but think not having a similar taste in music being a dealbreaker when it comes to a relationship is narrow minded in the extreme.

Maybe. Or maybe he knows himself. If music is the most important thing in his life, it will be an important thing in the relationship.

That I keep defending digital, even though I prefer CDs.

I do, genuinely, so much prefer to have CDs.

But I keep defending digital downloads because I guess I find some of the arguments against it a bit pointless. (Some.)

(a) I find the "what if your hard drive fails" argument a bit daft. It's a total non-argument when you stop looking at digital through the "one physical copy" understanding and look at the larger nature of the digital realm.

(b) It's really happening. Yes, really. You can fight reality if you want but personally I think fighting reality is a great big fast waste of time you could spend on something more productive.

(c) Everybody thinks they can hear the difference in quality between 320kbps and CD. Maybe those whose ears are finely attuned to music production can. I'll bet most people can't, though. (That said, I'd want download to get up to CD quality as standard if not better before it takes over.)

(d) I predict the day will come when the "CD forever, digital never" chant will be as faint as the "LP forever, CD never" chant of yesteryear is today. 'Cos we'll get used to it and grow to like it. We always do.

(e) It might actually enable more stuff to get released.

(f) It does have legitimate advantages. (He says, generally having to wait weeks rather than days for CDs to turn up, because he lives in England.)

There, I did it again. And I still prefer to buy my music on CD.

Please don't reply to this post, stay on topic of the original question.

Cheers
