An Advance On My Christmas Greeting

Merry Christmas! You know, I update the blog sparsely, so I didn’t want to miss the chance like I did with Thanksgiving… Oh yeah, Happy Thanksgiving, too! So I was recently browsing a couple of web sites for soundtrack rankings, and I stumbled upon Les Misérables. Some of you might be shocked to hear that…


Taking 5 To Reminisce

It was one beautiful summer day in 1992. The skies were blue, the grass was green and the air was purer than ever. The birds were chirping and people were enjoying the outdoors with their friends and families. Of course, I was inside glued to the TV screen playing Sega Genesis.


Did you feel it?

We arrived at the apartment, opened the front door letting all the heat out, and…


Taking The Non-Movie Land Exit…

Cinema Symphony

I have recently had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with British composer Andrew Pearce on Facebook. He stumbled upon Permanent Waves and made me realize it was missing some of his great compositions. His latest work, Cinema Symphony, contains beautifully powerful and powerfully beautiful pieces. Conducted by José Serebrier, I was greatly pleased with…
