Wasn't there also a guy named Pav Pavelek?

Pav did some great filmed interviews with Miklos Rozsa. The stuff I saw looked like it was shot on Super 8 Sound and looked a lot like my 70's Super 8's when I was a kid, but the content, just to have Miklos Rosza up close and personal was priceless.

Pav seemed like a gentle soul and great film music lover.

May he and all our other FSM friends who have gone on before us

Truly Rest in Peace.

His H'ness ( as I always fondly called him ) was a massive fan of Jerry Goldsmith and a great supporter of the music of Akira Ifukube.

'fraid he wasn't much of a Zimmer fan as far as I remember.


Oh, I think he liked Zimmer quite a lot. I remember he used to go on about that story where the BACKDRAFT theme was used on the IRON CHEF program. He seemed to like that. smile


I think that was because he was fascinated by Japanese culture, even writing a book about some aspect of Japanese monster films. Iron Chef originated in Japan and became a hit here in the U.S.

I chatted with him a few times about some interesting angles on Japan including Shinto and a few other things. Interesting person.

Guy McKone was a class act. I chatted with him a few times back in the old days (98-99?) Great fun.

Thomas Scofield was a wealth of information of Les Baxter and it was primarily his posts that got me interested in listening.

David Wishart was another good guy and we score collectors and listeners owe him a lot.

I remember reading posts by some of the others but can't remember any particaular conversations

I am sure that there are others who have passed that we never learned about because that only communicated through the board.

I will gladly raise a glass to them all.

Well written, Thor.

He loved the sweeping melodies of John Barry

Are you ok, Thor?

This has to be the nicest thread I've seen on any online forum in a very long time. And to think that it was initiated and largely populated by Thor, someone who often has to endure extreme antagonism for his contrarian views. (When we disagree, I hope it is seen in a more good-natured way.) Thanks for the thread and the memories, Thor.

I'll second that. Lovely sentiments, everyone.

And isn't it wonderful to think that the thoughts and feelings of those who have passed away can still be read and enjoyed if one simply does a little searching on this board?

The board is certainly a poorer place for the absence of these folks. I miss them all. Nice to see them remembered like this.

Well done, Thor.

I would have liked it better had the memorial not been C&C, though. wink

For those curious, this is what the messageboard looked like back then, in 98:

http://tinyurl.com/3ljufp

You'll see two of our departed in action there - H Rocco and Guy McKone. You may even click some of their threads to see their writings!

I've sometimes found myself trying to remember more about some of these missed board members. Thanks for keeping their memories alive, Thor.

Thanks for remembering, Thor. They are all greatly missed.

I can only confirm that Christian is still in my thoughts quite often. He was the closest "soundtrack friend" I ever had.

Thanks for keeping the others' memory alive as well, Thor. David Wishart was probably the one whose demise hit me most after Christian's. From everything I'd read by him on this board, I just always noticed the deep love he felt for our common cause of motion picture music. Last but not least, I remember an occasion when he proved to be quite humble.

Yeah, I miss Sir Gummy too. I think about him from time to time.

Well, one things for sure, he's finally gotten Jerry's autograph.

I must agree that this is Thor's crowning achievement in the board. By far the best thread of the year. Everyone actually seems like civilized, respectful and caring people. Thankfully these loving memories have taken the best aspects out of our personalities.

I just followed the link to Gummy's page... my heart is once again smashed. What a positively wonderful guy. I miss him a lot.

"Yuk yuk"

What a blast from the past! Oddly there's not one single post from Me, not sure why but I only lurked at the board until 1999.

Besides our friends who have passed on there are a few names who you never hear from anymore? Either that or they've changed they're moniker.

Well, it's only one page, after all. I didn't post much in the beginning either. Like you, I lurked from when the board was implemented in December-97 to about May-98, when I made my first few posts.

Ah yeah, there are definitely many oldtimers I really miss from those days that simply went away for whatever reason - Chris Kinsinger, Marian, Deckard, for example. Howard L and Jim Cleveland don't post much these days either. But that's for another topic.

Marian is still around and he´s doing good.
