The Raiders March on the Human Growth Hormone

Yoinked from revelos55:

  1. My username is _____ because ____.

    Swashbuckler332 because "Swashbuckler" was my nickname at Tower Records because I had fenced in high school. 332 was my troop in the Boy Scouts, thus a number that is easy for me to remember.

  2. My name is _____ because ______.

    "Joshua" because there is some sort of weird naming system in my family that requires a confluence of the first initial and some aspect of a person's prospective Hebrew name when they're born. I don't really understand it myself.

  3. My journal is titled ____ because ____.

    "Monsters from the Id," which is a line from the science-fiction classic Forbidden Planet. It is a pretty accurate description of the journal as well.

  4. My friends page is called ____ because ____.

    "Mellowship Slinky in D Minor" after the Red Hot Chili Peppers song. It was originally "Fellowship Slinky in D Minor," and I've often considered changing it back.

  5. My default userpic is ____ because ____.

    I actually just changed it from my Conan the King icon to my new and improved "Blown Away Guy" from the famed Maxell ad campaign of the 70s. I've been using the Conan icon as my default since I started my journal in January of 2003, and I felt it was time for a change. The "Blown Away Guy" is also outside of any particular fandom, which works for me right now.

Indy and son prove once and for all that the Babylonians
had light bulbs thousands of years before Thomas Edison.

Try as I might, I can't seem to get myself that excited about Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (there, I finally said the title straight out). I hope to be proven wrong, but I just don't feel like the movie is going to be any good. I certainly wasn't impressed by the obnoxious trailer, which made the film look to me like it is going to be more of an overpumped John Woo-esque romp where the explosions are exploding than a traditional serial adventure, which is what I associate the character with.

On the other hand, I'm pretty excited about John Williams' score for it, the release for which has been announced on Concord Jazz, along with plans to re-release the first three Indy scores; no word on whether this means the expanded Raiders or the original LP, or even if there will be expansions on the latter two scores (Temple of Doom could really use one). Either way, it'll be good to have these extremely popular scores back in print again.

Oddly, while the Crystal Skull album is up for pre-order from Amazon and, but there is no hint of it anywhere on Concord's website.

Dan and I cast one of the major roles for The Early Mixes last night, and have a prospect for the lead! That leaves only one role that we don't have anybody in mind for as yet.
