Holding Monday at arm's length...

Snagged from blackjackrocket in film_music was the link for this brief but interesting roundtable discussion with A.R. Rahman, Howard Shore, Danny Elfman, Alexandre Desplat and Jan A.P. Kaczmarek. They discuss the realities of creating film music in today's industry and touch on the problem of the muse. Check it out!

Cross-posted to filmscore.
I'm very sorry to everyone who requested an interview from me that it took so long to get back to you all. They were actually pretty difficult, mostly because while I was fine with having a few fluffy questions, I did want to get some substance out of them as well.
Yoinked from vdkapenguin is the Random Quotes meme:
  • Go to the Random Quotation Page.

  • Find the first five quotes that speak to you, for one reason or another, and post them in the comments here, and on your LJ, if you're so inclined.
Here are mine:
  1. Speak the truth, but leave immediately after.
    Slovenian Proverb

  2. The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook.
    William James (1842 - 1910)

  3. Hollywood is a place where people from Iowa mistake each other for stars.

  5. Buy the ticket take the ride.
    Hunter S. Thompson (1939 - 2005), Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
