  1. Myself, I'm not bothered with taking pictures of celebs at their table...I much rather get an autograph and hopefully a photo is included in that deal...

    But that does sound strict, I wonder if they would have problem with recording audio at Q&A, my camera has that option :D And who would bring a flashlight to a Q&A...or do you mean the flash when a picture is taken? :/

  2. I don't know if it has to be a fuss even though it may say on their website.

    I was at HorrorHound Weekend in Cincinnati, Ohio and I remember seeing something similar on their site. There it said photos of celebs are acceptable but treat them with respect. But it said no video-recording at the convention (unless you had written permission by the promoters and the talents' consent) yet I'm sure people were taping the Q&As and maybe even the dealer rooms as well, where the celebs are too. So, it just depends on the staff or how serious they take things...

  3. Shame it's only a sci-fi convention. Only interested in seeing RDA and Lance of course. Would be still interesting going somewhere else than just the US for conventions. After all, I have the complete MacGyver series boxset which included all the TV movies as well. The video/audio quality may not be great, but I'm sure am happy to have it all...I've still haven't gone through all the seasons, I think I'm on season six now...

  4. Just a shame they sort of cheated, they used the same take with two different angles when Frank Black is breaking the window with his hands.

    Now, I didn't cheat when I did my Depeche Mode "Frank" Black Celebration music video.

    Funny how you notice these things when you work on these music videos since you look at the same shots so many times during editing.

    And I'm afraid I'll be abroad when the next chat will occur, could anyone record it for me?

  5. The Keep...ugh...I saw it when I visited a friend of mine in the States in 2008. We sat through this borefest (good thing we had some beer to ease the pain ;) and it was some bootleg copy or something. There were some interesting concepts and ideas in there, but it was too slow, too long and too boring...maybe the only good thing about it was Tangerine Dream...Michael Mann has come a long way. But he did Thief before and that was a great film with great music...

  6. The Doors have the best nads? LOL!

    Woah! The Wolfman's got nards!

    Top of the Morning is a wonderful track on Tubular Bells III, playful yet calm...perfect for plane rides.

    Ok...time to find something Halloweeny.

    Now, why wasn't this on the soundtrack for Return of the Living Dead? Or was there another release somewhere else...? Hmmm...

  7. I do like Tubular Bells II and III, those works are wholly original, different take and tangents on the original version. Funny, I didn't like Tubutar Bells III very much when I bought it...but have grown to love it since I've let myself look past my initial "it's too much techno/rave thing for me" dislike...but it's really mellow and dreamy and has one kick ass rock tune as well.

  8. I don't think they made any changes, who knows maybe they had some sound effects under it....when I'll watch it during this week, I'll know for sure...and I can compare it to the original CD release, even a mint-conditioned vinyl release and a cassette. Yup...I have it in 3 formats...got them all cheap as well.

    I haven't even bothered getting or listening to the 2003 edition where he fixed and ironed out all the kinks, Oldfield was always unhappy about it, but to me it's just part of the appeal and charm...it's all good he wants to fix it, just as long as we can still hear and buy the original, since that's the version that people fell in love with and sold millions and it's a piece of history...*ahem* only if a certain George Lucas could think like that *sigh* John Cleese then does appear and lists the instruments, I believe, which Oldfield did on the original at the end of part 1.

    It's such a feat, this two part piece...many layers of sounds...tapes...he recorded them all by himself, okay, some instruments were played by others and vocals...but mostly he played them all. And the most amazing part, he was under 20 when he did that...just wow...

  9. And it's strange NOT to make 1000 copies when you have the option to do that, if you're going for 500...the leap from 500 to 1000 CDs is not that great...so it's a wiser decision, business wise, I'd think.

    And Alexander, thanks for moving the thread ;)

    Mark, you've been de-thanked! That's a phrase I just coined, I'll be in negotiations with Webster for my cut for using it in the next edition of the dictionary :D

  10. I'm sort of against the notion of Tubular Bells being a Halloween song, since the track in its whole, whether part 1 or part 2, not that much Halloween-y...well...there's this sort of "monster/werewolf" (sounds like it) yelling in Part 2. But there are slow gentle parts, so, I feel it's a cheat since Tubular Bells was not made especially for The Exorcist. They just found this track when going through lots of music and they used other parts from the song, maybe both parts, in other places in the film...like in the hallway of the dorm or apartment building, somewhere a rockin' tune is playing in the background.

    I like a few track of The Who but never really considered Boris the Spider a Halloween song, but then again, us Icelanders aren't celebrating Halloween that much, it's now just for costume night out on the town party type of thing, we do have our own "trick or treating" tradition, which involves singing, no tricks but the kids get treats.

    But I approve of the Monster Mash being at the top.

  11. Well..I ordered from them, and I eventually got them...but they weren't wrapped with bubble-wrap, so the cases were badly damaged (but I've got plenty of spare parts) but thankfully the CDs were okay.

    If you can get the soundtrack elsewhere, it would be better because I'm not so sure they're that cheap either.

    I did order from Varese and got those bubble wrapped and (relatively) unharmed...but was disappointed to hear a badly linked back-to-back track on Sean Callery's 24: Redemption soundtrack...it sounds like it's supposed to link but doesn't...otherwise, a fine CD.

    And Mark, thanks for moving the post to the right location, I had a blank moment when figuring out where to post it :D

  12. Great find Mark, not sure if the bit about James Remar was even mentioned on the extras on Aliens in the Quadrilogy set....or maybe I forgot it...

    Interesting to hear about these kinds of things, just like Eric Stoltz vs. Michael J. Fox in Back to the Future

    or even

    Tom Selleck vs Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones...okay, never got that far, but there were audition tapes or rehearsal footage...
