None. Had a chance once when FSM had a rare local NYC meeting but I didn't show.

I've MET Thor (Horner concert in Vienna) but never had a proper chat (I think our two resident reviewers - James S & John B were there too, but we just said Hi).
Pretty sure I met others during our trips to Ubeda, Spain for their film music festivals.

Thanks to the Bride of Frankenstein screening in October, I had the privilege of saying "hi" to MV and Mike M, but they won't remember me in the slightest. It was a busy event and I tend to not fanboy in person.

Otherwise, I do have a wish list of people I would enjoy spending a few hours with.

Erik Woods (lives 30 minutes away from me)
Doug Adams
Jon and Al Kaplan
Paul MacLean (not in person but talked over the phone when I was scoring his short film)
Jeff Bond (also just phone conversation)

Anyway, to keep up with the positive re-ignition of the board atmosphere, I'm curious about which FSM members you've met in real life before? How was it? What was the setting?

I have only met a handful of members, although I would love to meet more.

The biggest event was the San Francisco gathering Thor organized. It happened a while ago, so forgive me if I missed someone, but it was attended by Thor, myself, riotengine, Basil Wrathbone, David in Berkeley, and Bruce Marshall. We met for a few hours over dinner and drinks, and a good time was had by all. I thought we had some great conversations, and fortunately, no one felt compelled to call Lukas or David to intervene.

During San Diego Comic Con I met Sirusjr for dinner and drinks, and had a lot of fun. I also met some others at San Diego Comic Con, but as the conversations lasted less than a minute, I don't know that those count. Hopefully at this year's San Diego Comic Con I can meet up with some FSM members again.

How did it differ from the personality you had encountered online, or did it?

I think that the only major difference was that after a few beers, Thor revealed that he actually prefers C&C releases.


Just kidding. wink

I met a group of y'all when Thor hosted a New York get-together a few years ago -- I think he posted a photo in another thread that shows everyone. More recently I met Peter Greenhill at the presentation of "Lolita My Love". It is always great to put faces to names!

I met Joan Hue when she came over.

You've only met me in your graphic fantasies.wink

I met Brad Wills. He used to be an actor on Broadway and then toured in Broadway plays. I was watching Mama Mia in Spokane many years ago and recognized his name in the program. I went to the backstage after the play and introduced myself to him. He was a handsome and really nice guy. Invited me to dinner, but I was with a group. So wish I'd dumped my friends and had joined him.

There are lots of people on this board I'd like to meet.

I can confirm that I’ve met both Xebec and Thor. They’re ok, I guess.

Even though Sweden and Norway is neighbors it took me a trip to Los Angeles to meet Thor.

Meeting Thor over drinks at The Beverly Wilshire has to be less stressful than meeting him in a Starbucks in Uppsala!

None yet but I live in the vicinity of Bob DiMucci and Mike Esss.

Maybe I'll run into them at the local MGM casino someday soon. smile


Do you tend to go there at 2 am on a whim once your local dive turns the lights on?

I feel like whenI first got into the film music online community there were a lot of geographically focused meet-ups. Maybe there still are and they just aren't advertised, right guys? *everyone nervously shuffles out of the room*

Tall Guy, three times, I believe -- including one with his delightful family.

It’s been too long, Les. And the girls loved meeting M.

I wish you'd dumped your friends, too! Brief as it was, though, it was quite the surprise and remains one of my best tour memories.

In addition to my good northern friend Xebec and Thor, the Norse God of Score, and the great Les Jepson, the list includes:

- Music Mad Mitch and his lovely other half.
- Dave Norris, a fund of great stories and so well-connected.
- DavidinBerkeley, who very kindly gave me a baseball cap which lives in my car.
- Stevie G lookalike smile and reaper of souls Kev McGann.
- Roy Donga, an unexpected pleasure, thanks to Kev.
- Tim Burdon and Peter Hackman - the three of us roamed London for an afternoon, which I think was the most fun I’ve ever had standing up.

On the same day I rubbed shoulders with many other FSMers at David Arnold’s charity showing of Psycho, too numerous to name and in fact remember. And I’ve probably forgotten someone who will rightly be mortally offended; sorry!

Several of my encounters can be found in threads entitled “When FSMers meet...”

And I can’t fail to mention not a meeting but a phone call with the wonderful CAT, the much missed Cindy.

Despite my reading this board for 20 years, none.

Same here!
