"Ahm well, could be my mistake, but I have never seen Zimmer dancing in the colosseum next to stupid Brintey with a Pepsi in his hand."

Wasn't that Bob Dole?? *S* You know what I mean. Having his mind something other than the ball. One theory I have had (and this is only a theory, mind you) is that Zimmer and Horner survive in the Film Scoring industry on the basis of their business skills. Without being too biased, I don't really care for the work of these two composers (and most of my friends at school can't stand either one of them). The fact that most people that I know who would think to buy a soundtrack that isn't all heavy metal rock and/wrap would rather sit on a nail than purchase the works of these two guys (with some exceptions like Rocketeer, Apollo 13, Gladiator, The Rock... etc) is what leads me to believe this. So, if nothing else, I can respect the two of them as business men, and there is the possibility that they might be so occupied with the business of film scoring, they don't have the time or energy afterwards to deliver the kind of product that they are capable of. I think that, if this theory is correct, Zimmer could get his place in history as something other than a love/hate film scorer by focusing less on business. One thing I actually admired him for was taking a 3-note motive and scoring an entire long brukheimer movie with it (Pearl Harbor) and making it not boring the entire time. That (along with a pretty good gut feeling) tells me that he's got something great inside of him waiting to be let out. I really can't wait to hear it when it comes.
Feel free to email me off the board, if you like. Just be shure you tell me that you're you in the subject line 'cause I got my mail filter on exclusive.

All the best,

Ken Applegate
