So...I'm AhN. It's short for Archibald Heatherington Nastyface. That's not actually my name, of course. Keep up with my 90s British sitcom references.

I'm a nerd. About anything and almost everything. I can hold my own in a conversation about politics, sports, film, science, and in some areas of music. Speaking of which...

Muzak I likes:

Though I have mad respect for Bach (as a cellist, I really have no choice in the matter), I'm not a huge baroque era fan. I like some classical composers (I acknowledge Mozart must have been a genius, but I don't really like his music.), but the Romantic era is my bread and butter when it comes to "classical music." Beethoven, Schubert, Dvorak, Strauss, it's just a fantastic era of expressive music. And I love Wagner. I grew up on alternative and classic rock, so if you ever want to discuss rock, I'm your guy. I'm slowly gaining appreciation of jazz and rap. My picture sorta gets a cross section of much of what I love in music.

Film music stuff!
First score I owned on CD: Star Wars Episode IV
First score I owned digitally: probably Fellowship of the Ring
Favorite score: I don't do favorites (suck it Michael )
There's too much stuff I can put here, and I really don't have the time, so here's my list of top scores for every year dating back to 1978:
2015 - The Force Awakens
2014 - Battle of the Five Armies
2013 - Desolation of Smaug
2012 - An Unexpected Journey (Okay, the Hobbit love may be excessive. Here are the number 2s for each of these years: Life of Pi, Romeo and Juliet, How to Train Your Dragon 2)
2011 - Adventures of Tintin
2010 - Last Airbender
2009 Avatar
2008 Defiance (kinda weak year though)
2007 Atonement
2006 Lady in the Water
2005 Brothers Grimm
2004 The Incredibles
2003 Return of the King
2002 - The Two Towers
2001 - Fellowship of the Ring (The LOTR love is not irrational. #2s from those years: Harry Potter 1, Attack of the Clones, Matrix Revolutions)
2000 Chicken Run
1999 The Phantom Menace
1998 The Mask of Zorro
1997 Titanic

1991 Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
1990 Dances With Wolves/Edward Scissorhands
1989 Batman
1988 The Land Before Time
1987 - Empire of the Sun (Lacking in this year.)
1986 The Mission^
1985 Back to The Future/Out of Africa
1984 Temple of Doom
1983 Return of the Jedi
1982 E.T./Conan the Barbarian/Star Trek II (I can't pick!)
1981 Raidres of the Lost Ark
1980 Empire Strikes Back
1979 Star Trek: The Motion Picture
1978 Superman
1977 Star Wars

Opinions on controversial subjects regarding film and film music:
I don't do half stars. Music I rate from 1 to 5, no halves, and film I rate from 1 to 4, with halves.
I used to dislike Ramin Djawadi, Tyler Bates, and Clint Mansell. Within the last year, they have scored "Pacific Rim," "Guardians of the Galaxy," and "Noah," all of which were decent-to-pretty good. Because of this, I believe that every composer has potential and should be given a chance. I believe Reznor and Ross have a masterpiece hiding in them that will blossom forth once Fincher picks a movie without such bleakly grating tones.
I'll add more later.
