I tried, I promise, and I tried hard, but those people from Saturday Night Live said that you got better results in the test, that's why it is you that was chosen!

You say I'm biased? I suppose you're right, that's why I like Schindler's List, The Piano, Rudy, Hook, Road to Perdition, Willow, Jacob's Ladder, Carrie, and so many scores like those. You see? You know no about me, dude.
It is precisely because I've listened to many scores that I have the right (please, forgive my daring, I promise I'll say 200 prayers tomorrow evening so that I can be forgiven) to think, and say, that A Beautiful Mind is nothing outstading, and that Horner, as much as Williams, is burned out, as they seem to be unable to offer anything valuable and original which does not remind us of earlier scores.
I do also think that people in this forum are by now aware of the illiteracy of someone who thinks that Zimmer stands for "powerful percussion, driving brass themes and someguy singing in a way that makes people want to shoot themselves" Someone with such a simplistic opinion should not be taken too seriously.
By the way, I've always thought that you can't be sarcastic unless you have a minimum degree of intelligence. Now I see I was wrong (I'm being sarcastic )

Score guru, you say? I'd never dare steal that title from you, dude!!!!!

Thanks for asking, but I think my advice would not be helpful, as I would recommend you to buy one of those "powerful percussion, driving brass themes and someguy singing in a way that makes you want to shoot yourself" scores, instead of great concert suites with piano rhymes. You know, nobody is perfect, dude. Anyway, and (again), just for you to know, I do own James Horner's Glory.

I prefer being a stupid dude rather than being an illiterate asshole who thinks he holds the ultimate truth. You know what they say, there's no accounting for tastes, if you can't accept that go to Williamsland or Hornerland, sure your exquisite taste will be better appreciated there.

> That is what I (and many many others) would call a "hypocricy"

Then how would I (and many many others) call what you've been writing so far?
