    John Williams did the music? Ah. So that's why it was awesome. Now I want to go back and find all the individual themes.

    I think with Tolkien, there really isn't a "in my view". The debate starts with him being a genius and just goes on to whether or not you happen to enjoy his work. Anyone who thinks he wasn't a genius just doesn't know their Tolkien

    Oh tangerine tangets lol!

    PS. I am calling it right now Channing Tatum is going to get divorced.

    So, since you two started a tangent here (ugh brain fart, what was I going to write?).... oh right the BBC News said scientists have discovered the male brain checks out the female body more than the face. Really, scientists had to figure that out??!!

    I dream music never created before as in when I am sleeping I come up with full orchestrations or jazz compilations. I just so wish I had the composition skills that John had.

    Listen to Alfred Bendel too.

    Yes, listen to Jurassic Park I and then listen to HP Chamber of Secrets you will see often some of the same keys (tones) and scales are used.

    Regardless of our age, most of us will "drool" over any attractive female substantially beyond puberty.
    Yeah. I'm 30, and happily married to a gorgeous woman, and that gif still scrambled my brain for at least a couple of seconds.

    They aren't reporting the real story on that one.

    The real story is "Scientists have figured out ways to get people go give them money to spend time checking out women."

    The obvious advertising link for the side of the page is "How to become a scientist in three easy steps"

    HAHHAHSHAHHAHA pretty much!

    ok time for another tangent, what people get away with writing is ludicrous. Like go to Barnes and see potty training books for parents written by pediatricians from Harvard. So, you have to have a Harvard degree to teach a 2-3 yr old how to go pee pee in the potty? Hm, let's see I was 14 babysitting my toddler cousin (who ironically has a chance at Harvard now as he's finishing up HS, how that boy even survived his household I'll never know let alone get straight As) I took some cheerios tossed them in the loo and said aim. Had him trained in 2 days.
    I should write a book.

    I always liked to imagine Voldermort (shudders) was Margret Thatcherand the death eaters her rich tory supporters.
