Yoooooooooooooooo Brendan! smile big grin

Good to know that you're still checking in on us...and this place's pulse...or something.

Our heyday was also so heyday-y because of the time difference. I was up and posting six hours before you guys began, so it was a somewhat around-the-clock extravaganza of (s)henanigans. I'd say that by early 2002, the Goldenthal discussions had been firmly supplanted by LotR.

My parents will be happy to hear that (they say "Hi", too). Of course, it all depends on how you define any of these terms. And I sometimes do wish my brain was better at remembering the things pertinent to functioning in daily life and my trade that all these ScoreBoard and Gathering anecdotes from twenty years ago! big grin

This is actually something I thought about yesterday. If I add the persons (all of this is pretty much pre-social media times, mind) that I talked with on the phone...

...John Williams is planning to come to Milan in Italy next June. I daresay that dratted pandemic will have subsided enough by then that to undertake a Filmtracks Gathering might not be too inconceivable...?

Bwahahahaha. This is simply about the most spot-on description I've ever read of the guy.

Just re-read Tex's Gathering Reports from 2002...especially that episode that took you to Cleveland in the middle of the night in order to drop off Jens at the train station.

Yeah, that. On my end, it was interesting to follow the progress I made with my English. Perhaps posting so much on here actually played a role in my going to Canada for my grad studies...and the prospect of meeting more ScoreBoarders. Although I continue to be bummed that I managed to leave Germany just before Jenna and you came over for a visit. frown My parents still talk about it fondly, so... smile

You, unlike me, have a proper family, a proper job and a proper life. All we at Filmtracks needed to do is to see you off to a good start and get you to a point where you'd be self-sufficient...or something. Worked with Nate, too. big grin

I remember that, too. And I'm not going to look up my take on that. tongue

Have a good weekend!

CK, happy to have Brendan as a friend
