When I envision Film Music Nerds getting together, it's a group of silent men shifting nervously in their sneakers, hands in their pockets, looking at the floor.

We need to mainstream! Let's try this: become a Bro Culture!

Here's a sample of what we could do before a concert:

What else could we do?

I think the proper word is "nerdity."

There needs to be a "ringer" invited to the meet - someone who likes only pop hits and thinks movie music is "dumb." Then we can all unite against the troll!

DIB was at our FSM get together a few years ago.
Thor was there and, miraculously, didn't get shit faced.
Wrathbone started a bar room brawl which got half of us arrested.
I snuck out before the fuzz came. Then afterwards, I went back in and finished my Guinness.
Espinosa fell asleep.
I left him there.

For John William's Events

-Have someone blarring the Jaws score - while someone running around in a shark suit is trying to avoid us throwing velco tipped darts tied to empty yellow beer cans.

-Baton (Wand) conducting competitions.

-Imaginary food fights to Hook music

-pushing each other around in shopping carts and mooning people (after several beers, and when the E.T. cue comes on).

Bro culture hits Broadway:



Why couldn't we do film, too?

One step above "air conducting," because we've got class! smile

I might have one of those pairs of glasses.

I'm afraid I can't let this word be promulgated in this thread. Someone will see it, then start imagining what "full frontal nerdity" is, and that could get ugly! big grin

Maybe we could combine it with our long-standing goal of meeting women*

and start a film score yoga class?

Downward Duning, anyone?

Funny. But no. Bro culture in every aspect needs to killed with fire.

I just discovered that there's something called "Walk-Up Music," for baseball players.

Why don't we do that, so we can spread film music awareness? So, at the next staff meeting, when you walk in the door, have your Nerdphone play your walk-up music.

Me, what would I choose? Hmmmm. Either "The Gremlin Rag"



or

some swooshy 70's Mancini, like "Dreamy" from THE RETURN OF PINK PANTHER,



or the gushy, comic fanfare that opens the bedroom finale of THE PINK PANTHER STRIKES AGAIN

https://youtu.be/usZG6ekFN4g?t=50

And what would your walk-up be?

Maybe we can start small. Maybe we can start selling t-shirts. What saying should we have on it?

"I know how to wear earphones while bobbing my head. Ask me how."

Or start big. Is there a Film Music Day? To spread awareness?

Maybe there should be. (There's an International Bacon Day, after all.)
