In 1998 he was working on the X-File movie, and from 1999 to 200 on Harsh Real. Season 2 of MLM aired in 1997-98, so I'm sure you're correct. He was a very busy man back then. IMDb shows him also working on the X-Files screenplay/story, and the video game story in 1998.
What made this show a tad confusing is the fact that each season had multiple writers, directors, and producers. And if my memory hasn't failed me, Chris Carter was one of the producers for all 3 seasons, but was directly involved in only seasons 1 & 3. He didn't write any of the episodes in season 2, just 4 in season 1 and 3 in season 3. You can look it up here for more details ~
Wow, what an awesome thing to notice seesthru. Yes, it was like Frank moved out that same night, and may have. Maybe they were buying a second home to move in to. I need to watch that episode again and listen intently...or, there's always the transcripts that Libby posted at the main site.
As always, Alex, you bring pleasure to the ears. Thank you again and again. Would you believe I am still listening to a copy of the new orchestra album in the car? It's so good, and fantastic for driving.
Copying and pasting so there's a better chance of everyone reading this story. Thank you for sharing it Alex, and thank you for contacting Mark and making Nina a forever happy camper.

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.
Not only do I believe the group benefited from Frank's problems, they contributed to it. Catherine was a strong woman with an incredible insight and observed everything she could, and then had the wisdom to keep a lot of it to herself, but still seeing and knowing. This to me intimidated the group, and they wanted her out. I really believe she was a threat to them. She also had the ability to be very spiritual, and, very practical at the same time, which was very evident in Anamnesis.
I can't believe I didn't think of that. Of course. With Mark Snow, it doesn't matter, he's still a music master. His ability to let us hear what we are feeling in a any scene is amazing.
Yes, that prayer at the beginning is, to me, eerie, and/or haunting.

Psychiatrists studied 400 movies to find the most realistic psychopath — here are their 6 key takeaways
Chris Weller Jan. 2, 2018, 11:40 AM
Psychopathy, loosely defined, is a combination of cold-heartedness and violence. The most extreme psychopaths may kill without remorse, mutilating victims with as much emotion as you or I might brush our teeth.
This is known as "classic" or "idiopathic" psychopathy, but sometimes the disorder is more covert, as with some manipulative smooth talkers who aren't necessarily violent.
In 2014, Belgian psychiatry professor Samuel Leistedt wanted to find out which movie characters embodied psychopathic traits best.
Leistedt called on 10 of his friends to help him watch 400 movies over the course of three years. The films spanned nearly a century, from 1915 to 2010. When the team finished watching all the films, they'd found 126 psychopathic characters.
Here's a breakdown of their findings.
Anton Chigurh of "No Country for Old Men" was the most realistic psychopath.
Javier Bardem's character in "No Country for Old Men" is a classic psychopath, Leistedt and his colleagues concluded in their report.
Chigurh approaches murder with an uncanny sense of normalcy, perfectly happy to empty his trademark bolt pistol without so much as a wince.
"He seems to be effectively invulnerable and resistant to any form of emotion or humanity," the researchers wrote.
Honorable mentions went to two characters: Hans Beckert in "M" and Henry Lee Lucas in "Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer."
In the 1931 German film "M," Peter Lorre plays a child-killer who embodies many of the traits now thought of as belonging to a child predator, Leistedt and his colleagues observed.
"Lorre portrays Beckert as an outwardly unremarkable man tormented by a compulsion to murder children ritualistically," the researchers wrote.
In the 1986 John McNaughton film "Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer," the titular character's inability to plan ahead, coupled with his turbulent personal life and poor family relationships, make him a textbook idiopathic psychopath, Leistedt said.
Early representations of psychopaths weren't very accurate.
Characters like Tommy Udo in the 1947 film "The Kiss of Death" and Cody Jarrett in "White Heat" (1949) played to people's misunderstanding that "genre villains," such as gangsters or mad scientists, typified psychopathy.
"They were often caricatured as sadistic, unpredictable, sexually depraved, and emotionally unstable with a compulsion to engage in random violence, murders, and destruction," the team wrote, "usually presenting with a series of bizarre mannerisms, such as giggling, laughing, or facial tics, often creating famous and unreal characters."
For decades, slasher films reigned as the ultimate (false) display of psychopathy.
Films like "A Nightmare on Elm Street" and "Friday the 13th" delivered a brand-new take on the cinematic psychopath. But Leistedt and his colleagues argued in their report that Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees aren't psychopaths.
"In these slasher films," they wrote, "psychopathic characters are generally unrealistic, accumulating many traits and characteristics, such as sadism, intelligence, and the ability to predict the plan that the future victims will use to escape. Today, these are more iconic popular evil representations of fictional killers than of interesting psychopaths."
Female psychopaths are just as rare in film as in the real world.
Out of the 126 psychopaths in the team's sample, only 21 were female.
Typically, those characters fit a similar mold, often serving "as scheming manipulators whose main weapons are sexual," the research team wrote. Examples of such female psychopaths in film include Hedra Carlson in "Single White Female" and Catherine Tramell in "Basic Instinct" — both of whom use men's sexual desires against them to dangerous degrees.
Characters such as Annie Wilkes in "Misery" and Rachel Phelps in "Major League" are among the few exceptions to that rule.
Some of the most famous "psychopaths" didn't make the cut.
Patrick Bateman in "American Psycho," Gordon Gekko in "Wall Street," Norman Bates in "Psycho," and Hannibal Lecter in "Silence of the Lambs" are all entertaining and frightening. But Leistedt and his team said their character traits don't quite fit the psychopath mold.
"In our specific topic of interest, it appears that psychopathy in the cinema, despite a real clinical evolution, remains fictional," the authors wrote. "Most of the psychopathic villains in popular fiction resemble international and universal boogeyman, almost as 'villain archetypes.'"
Walkabout posted this info in the Miscellaneous Thread and I just had to start a new thread with it. Often things can get lost there.
There's a restriction to copying his images so I couldn't post any, however, I was able to find a few that had been posted elsewhere, and with him in his studio, plus I did a couple "Print Screens." Such beautiful creations.
Thanks again Alex for another awesome post. I have this album and absolutely love it. Made a copy and have been playing it in the car. It's awesome. So looking forward to a vol. 2. Alex, surely there will be one; won't there?

EARTH-----> Mr. Belch, what other TV show.
I was thrilled about there being a crossover and why I watched it. Frank and Jordan's future will always be filled with questions. Our fan production, MLM Apoc., and of course our imaginations, may be all we get and have.
