All EIGHT scores, surely? tongue I'd love to hear them.

Your early aliases (both "Chris Kuehn" and "Christian Kuehn" sans umlaut) extend your lead by another 50 posts or so. Here's a fun one:

At this point I think I'd come back here even if I never listened to another note of film music ever again in my life. (And the odds of that happening are pretty much zero, no matter how disillusioned or curmudgeonly I might get with the new stuff, the old stuff is always there for me!)

Can only co-sign this. Alas, Los Angeles is damnably far away from anywhere that I ever am.

Hook posted here as recently as 2018, surprisingly. Not very much though. Always fun to see one of the "old timers" make a cameo appearance.

Good times, both times. Hope we can make it happen soon, although that might require me to get off this sodden emerald isle. indifferent

Well, if it did that, then it was a worthwhile endeavor. cool
