State of the Start

While I produced quite a few mixes over the course of 2007, there were also several that I started but never finished, and a few that were leftovers from the previous year. One of the most oft-requested of these was the Superman mix that I had spent quite a bit of time on, completed and found out about the two disc promo for Superman Returns. Well, now that...

...I'm glad that I waited. The sonic improvements to the score from Superman are quite welcome (in celebration, I just sampled the music-only track on the Blu-ray presentation I have, which is a higher bit rate than that which appeared on the standard-definition DVDs), not to mention the cues I used from a less-than-pristine source for Superman II (unfortunately, the only version of Superman II available in high-def in the Donner cut, and, as I've mentioned before, I prefer the Lester cut for a variety of reasons).

My purchase of the high-def player has inexplicably disappeared from my bank statement. I've never seen that happen before. I just glanced over at my home theater to make sure that I do, in fact, still have the high-def player and that this wasn't all some strange mental distemper, but it is, indeed, right there. I can only assume that the charge will re-appear the moment it becomes completely inconvenient.
