Please feel free not to buy it!

Ron, I was being entirely facetious. I am (like you) completely exasperated by the folks here who seem to want to live in a constant state of outrage and will look everywhere to find it.

That it didn’t come off as a joke means either that my comedy skills need honing (very possible) or that it’s impossible to parody things that seem to have devolved into self-parody.


Dude, I just laughed my butt off. Your comedy is on point, amigo

I got your joke! You set the comedic baseline with an outrageously absurd request and followed through with the rule of threes, ending with a button. Perhaps you could have pushed it further but it worked for me! Are you a comedy writer?

The negativity in this thread only makes me want to buy multiple copies of this release to spite those weirdo jerks.

The comedy skills definitely need honing. Though it’s nice to see that you continue to bite. By the way, I thought you were leaving this board a while back? Take it the family also doesn’t understand your humor and that’s why you’re back?

“Arrival at Daedalus” really is a gem!

I listened to the sample and it caught my attention as well! It's a short cue but has a lot of wonderfully sparkling Williams flourishes. I haven't been able to sit through the movie because I find it quite silly, but if I was more familiar with the whole score I would definitely have been missing "Arrival at Daedalus", so I'm glad it has been included!

Does this mean all of the score in the film is now covered by this release?

It's completely expanded.

Hey, how about a poll folks:
Who here likes having MV Gerhard around on this board, answering questions and such about La-La Land releases, and engaging with us film music fans?

Now who wishes he would go away and never make posts here?

Who here *liked* having Roger Feigelson of Intrada here on this board, answering questions about Intrada releases and engaging with us film music fans?

Now who here is GLAD he recently left (thanks in large part to HalloweenBorg)? Do please raise your hands, all of you!

Who here thinks MV and Roger and other label folks being here is a good thing, a positive contribution to this conversation space (to say nothing of all the fine releases they have put out for us to enjoy over the years, preserving this great music on album for posterity)?

Now how many people here -- don't be shy -- think that HalloweenBorg contributes something of value to this forum of discussion, with his oh-so-witty comments?

IF enough people agree with me that he is a toxic presence on this board, who ruins and derails almost every thread he participates in, making bullying comments towards people for his own amusement and then feigning innocence on a regular basis -- SIMPLY REPORT HIS POSTS to David Sones, the moderator -- the "Report Abuse" button is there on every post if you're signed in. If enough people complain and ask for him to be banned, he'll be gone and darken our doorstep no more -- that's what happened with Bruce Marshall, who as far as I could see was more of a nuisance than an outright bully. It's easy enough for me to block him personally so I don't see his attacks on me (although I see his nasty comments whenever someone else quotes him, unfortunately). But that doesn't save the FSM board, itself, from becoming just that much more of a miserable place to try and discuss film music. If you find him amusing and want him to stick around, fine. Roger Feigelson isn't the first label representative who swore off coming here because of the constant negativity, and he won't be the last if this keeps up. Decide whose presence here adds more to the knowledge and discussion of film music, and act accordingly.

Oh, and by the way, about my taxes...
"As for Yavar lecturing everyone on inflation, this is the same guy who said in another thread he was having major tax issues and didn’t know why so I would encourage him to settle up with the federal government before talking about economics."
^^^ This is bullying and abuse, plain and simple. As Schiffy pointed out it's a non sequitur answer to my point about the labels having to raise prices because they themselves have to deal with rising costs and inflation (which no one here has refuted, including Mr. Borg.) But it's also an outright lie, merely designed to provoke me, which is why I did my best to ignore it up until now even though other people quoted the comment.

To set the record straight here: I never ever said I was "having major tax issues" which makes it sound like I'm in trouble with the federal government/IRS. I simply shared that I was currently broke, as a result of having received a much-larger-than-expected tax bill. Now, a human being would see that comment and maybe sympathize/empathize. I'm sure many people here have had a similar experience from time to time, whether it's a tax bill or a hospital bill or whatever. HalloweenBorg sees that comment as an excuse to bully, just as he did a few posts above with MV in this thread.

No doubt HalloweenBorg has another nasty answer ready and waiting to answer this post of mine. He seems so desperate for me to acknowledge his existence even though I've blocked him, and I certainly already regret giving him the satisfaction of my attention. But everyone here -- ask yourselves what kind of place you want the FSM board to be? Do you want HalloweenBorg to set the tone here? Because he will, if he's allowed to. If you don't want that, hit the "Abuse" button. He won't know and turn his sights on you next, because only the moderator David Sones gets that notification.

Yes,it can get very silly and ugly on this board,but who the hell is Yavar Moradi to encourage authoritarianism on this board. No one is above reproach ... me ... Yavar... record labels. This is America ; not an authoritarian country led by Yavar Moradi. You don't like what a member posts or you don't want someone to see your posts , you can stop them from seeing it. King Solium will tell you how to do it. Over and out.

On a good day...

And if anybody's counting, count me in for having MV and Roger and all representing the music production business (yes, even Ford Thaxton!) represented actively here on the board. Being rude to these people seems exceptionally, well, rude, and counter-productive to the interests of us niche consumers. We've been on a pretty good run with these folks for nigh on to three decades now, abd frankly I'd much rather have the MVs and Rogers hanging around here than HalloweenBorgs and his/her ilk.

Actually I'm pretty sure this is a forum on the internet, which has fuck all to do with America.
Also somewhat ironic there, as Solium is the only person I've ever blocked.

Also, Intrada gave me a complete Return to Oz, they can eat children for breakfast and they will still be awesome.

This is a privately run message board WITH RULES. Rules equate to some authoritarianism.

Crappy attitudes have been banned from this message board in the past and may well be again.

LMAO! I don't know what I did to you, but thanks for making my day.

All right, enough already.

I do not have the time or interest to review pages and pages of threads to find out who started what, or who was rude to whom, or whatever.

I'm very sorry to hear Roger left, I didn't know that. I hope he comes back.

Halloween Borg: I don't even know who you are, but some people are complaining about you. Please take care to be a little bit nicer in the way you express your opinions. Of course you can criticize companies—everybody is welcome to criticize me, for example—but just don't be a dick.

Is this simple enough, for everybody? DON'T BE A DICK!!!

Don't ask me to define what "being a dick" is. We all know what it is.

I would also appreciate if people don't try to organize campaigns against other users to get them reported and thus banned...Yavar?

I hope Elon Musk has fun with Twitter. Just policing this board is a tiresome enough experience.

DON'T BE A DICK!!!!!

Lukas
