Oh yeah, Kira and I fought the good fight on that front in those days. Powell and HGW were considered the harbingers of Media-Ventures doom to film scoring in those days and us younger folks defended them heroically cool (though everyone DID like Chicken Run at least) I had a great time visiting her up in Montreal a couple times.

Any long-running message board needs a few good mysteries. There hasn't even been a troll impersonating him...

Brendan was the first scoreboarder I ever met in person, just before the first film tracks gathering in 2002 when my mother and I had lunch with him at Mall of America (quite the place) in Minneapolis where he performed in the Snoopy Marching Band. (epic gig) In those days making internet friends was a bit of a new concept, and my mother understandably wanted to get a better idea of what I was getting myself into driving in a van with this guy and bunch of others like him from all over the world from Minnesota to Ohio... I *was* 16 at the time so I definitely get it big grin Brendan passed her test quite well. She's a total nerd for classic rock and songwriting (I get the geek gene from her) so although we weren't carpooling to a rock concert exactly, she still understood the basic concept big grin

Glad new generations of scoreboard posters appreciate it like I do! smile

I should darn well hope so! smile
