It's all about the music. I've acted on many a recommendation from this board and I'm glad it's still around.



How in the hell did you manage to build those without them collapsing? Must have taken a while.

Justin: I see Carnac the Magnificent was correct.

@ Mr. Timothy J. Phlaps: Wow! Sorted by?

In this photo? Nothing, I was just moving them to more robust storage boxes. But I try and keep them to a theme, whether it's franchise, director, composer or label.

Carefully.

Yes, Carnac is a wise man... ;-)



Looking at that pile in the photo reminds me of years ago about a news story of two dudes who were hoarders living in a house. I can't recall the reasons for why the police went in, but they could only find one guy. Then sometime later they found the second guy -- buried under stack of stuff that fell on him and killed him.

Just sayin'. ;-)

I don't know what boorish comments were made to cause the need for this thread - but I couldn't agree more with the notion of 'positive FSM'. My god - these guys and these labels! What 'saints of art' they are. I believe they have sacrificed so much to seek out, restore, preserve, release the music we love. Any one of these guys could have made a whole lot more money in the big time, commercial end of the music biz with their skill and know-how. They deserve NOTHING BUT PRAISE and our gratitude.

I LOVE action film scores! Mainly from the 1980s and 1990s! They are a big part of my inspiration to continue writing my fiction pieces. I love any and all genres, but the action and adventure genre from the two mentioned decades make up majority of my collection. It’s the best form of musical art for me.

I also love this board where I get to nerd out with fellow film score nerds. I also learn a lot from many on this board who far more informed and have a far greater collection than I.

Also, totally agree on that CHiPs release. It's a disc that keeps on giving.

I don't know whether to be proud or embarrassed by the fact that I recognize so many of those CDs by their spine labels.

You have great taste in film music.

    Like many people here, I have loved this board for years and learnt so much from some very knowledgeable folks. I have occasionally enjoyed the sparring from certain rascals only to then agonize and endure those same rascals once they believed they had the power to derail decency, conversation and genuine bonhomie for their own warped pleasure.

    It is certainly sad that these individuals ignore warnings to perpetuate their own illogical campaign of ill-will. And even though I, as Kilt-Man, forever champion freedom of speech,  and hate the notion of banning people and voices ... it is only fair and just that these time-wasting and frustrating individuals be removed from a place full of people that gather together out of a mutual love of something that moves us all beyond mere words. Film-music and the power it has.

    Stay together, folks. This place is home to so many of us.

    Long may it continue!
    Cheers

    Chris Kilt-Man

    I am forever grateful that a young Gen Xer had a dream and the drive to begin a film music magazine; merely six years later grow it to include a music label that released 250 film and television scores, and then progressed with the times to move the original film music magazine from print to digital without losing one scintilla of the quality and impact of the original publication. Along with all of this, is a website that is a glorious repository of current film music news and a precious archive of film music history. Lukas Kendall has given us so much and continues to give to this day. How privileged we were to share in the news of the genesis and completion of his short film, Sky Fighter.

    I happened upon FSM while scrounging the web for the scores to the many Golden Age movies I grew up watching. Hell, I didn't even know they were classified as Golden Age. Joining this site opened my eyes and ears to so much film music beauty that I can't begin to comprehend it. It brought me to a hobby and an appreciation that I never knew existed. I have learned so much. The depth of knowledge and enthusiasm that exists on this board is priceless. I cherish the wonderful people I have met along the way and the amazing composers and scores I have been introduced to.

    Thank you Lukas.

    I don't recall if I found FSM the website first or FSM the magazine first, but I do recall how surprised I was to find there was a magazine about film scores, spotted in Books-A-Million. I think I purchased about a handful of issues. I believe the first issue I bought had Horner on the cover.

    They didn't carry it for long, since I was probably the only customer.

    I'm a member of many forums, and FSM was my first. I do love it here, I've been a member for almost 20 years, and have many friends. There are a lot of good people here!

    The most positive aspect of FSM for me is summed up in the thread about which FSMers you've met in real life. There are plenty more on the list that I'd like to catch up with some time.
