    Yes, it's a really wonderful album.
    Snow Files of the Week: "Grow up Superboy/Ferris Wheel" from "Smallville" (2001).
    The show ran for ten seasons, but after season 6, Mark left the show and his former music editor Louis Febre took over for the remaining three seasons. It was Mark's decision, since he was so busy doing the music for "Smallville" and "Ghost Whisperer" at the same time, with additional movies in between (like the second X-Files movie in 2008), that he just wanted to have more time with his family.

    The music for "Smallville" shows Mark again as a master of haunting themes and melody. His distinctive sound is easy to recognize. A digital album was released with music from the show, before La-La-Land Records released a 2-CD-Set, containing all tracks from the digital album, as well as a second CD with even more music from the show. It also has tracks by Louis Febre from the later seasons. The CD is limited to 3000 copies.
    Enjoy!

    Snow Files of the Week: Suite from The X-Files episode "Post-Modern Prometheus" (1997).
    For this episode, Snow composed a very unusual score. The main theme, a circus-dance-music-piece, is something, that you would expect from Danny Elfman, not from Snow. But Mark combines this music with a more somber tone for the grief of "The Great Mutato", who is looking for something we all do: Love.
    And during Mutato's speech at the end of the episode, Mark again uses a piece of Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture" within his score. This specific piece can also be heard in the MillenniuM episode "Lament".
    The music was released as a promotional disc at first, later it got an offical release on La-La Land Records' first volume box of The X-Files music.
    There is also a single disc with music from The X-Files, that was released in 2013 by BUYSOUNDTRAX.COM. "The X-Files 20th Anniversary" contains music from various seasons of the show, including the "Post-Modern Prometheus" music as a re-recording. The CD is limited to 1000 copies and is also available digitally.
    Enjoy!

    The internet can be a beautiful place for meeting people from all over the world. Administrating the Mark Snow fan page on Facebook brought me in contact with some wonderful people. One of them is Nina from Brazil. She had one wish, getting the X-Files main theme handwritten by Mark Snow himself and autographed, so that she could make a tattoo out of it. I wrote Mark about her request and he immediately said yes. A few days ago she got her tattoo and I offered her to tell her story on the fan page. And it is her story, that I want to share with you as well.

    It absolutely amazes me that you are able to, not just keep track of all of Mark's music, but know the story for each track.    
    Alex, thank you again and again and again.

    Thanks Earthnut! I realize I might have to check myself a bit... Sometimes I race here after watching an episode just to vent. :-p I find myself doing that a lot more in Season 3, but after wading through previous posts here I tend to cool off a bit... That being said, I'm with you on trying to appreciate each season for its unique approach.

    In seasons 1 and 2 the group's involvement in taking cases almost always seemed "exploratory." They took on cases which signaled a nefarious evil or apocalyptic flair and dove right in. In season 3 now it seems like all they're interested in doing is manipulating law enforcement to cover their trails. Granted, this is the furthest I've gotten so far, but I'd have liked to see an episode where Agent Hollis and Mr Black are investigating a case that Peter Watts shows up on because it happens to be truly, to quote Giebelhouse, "milleniumistic." (Speaking of which, it was nice seeing Giebs again in Teotwawki.) This shift of having the millenium group only show up to do something nefarious is a bit too sneering-villain thick. I'm not saying that I can't accept the sinister angle of the group; it's just that now they're only shown doing sinister things, and it can't be the case that now that's all they do. A group doesn't do a 180 in mission statement just because of a change in management.

    I think the group gave her the vaccine, but she didn't know.  I think they gave her the syringe,knowing she would give it to Frank, and they set him  up to make a terrible choice.... If she had died in  the outbreak, I believe Frank would have mentioned it in the same breath he  told they killed his wife.
     If she came back to reality, the group would swarm in all over her.  If she stayed insane, they'd  wash their hands of her.   IF I were writing her story, I'd have her pretend to be insane, until she  could sneak away and  get free of them.

    My only problem with Lara Means was the "Here's My Thing"   It was very annoying.  But now, I find in it a reason to smile nostalgically ...  He character, when she arrived in "Monster"   was so strong, so self-assured,   determined...  The  end of the one season  she was on the show, was a far cry from the beginning.     I  wish that in Season 3 they had  given her closure, maybe had Frank stop by and visit her, well, and AWAY from the group for good.

    I didn't see where anyone has put up this topic, yet.  Is anyone bothering with the X-Files anymore?  I haven't seen tonight's episode (6) yet, but so far, it's been a much better season than last and I'm really enjoying it.  A really nice hybridization of mythology and stand alone stories and much more tightly written.  Car chases and voice overs maybe too long, but I don't want to nitpick.  I should probably sign up at some X-Files site somewhere to discuss it, but by the time I get to it, the show will be over!  So sad:(
