they usually played it at the end of the episode when he's trying to thumb a ride...that simply piano part in the background...


also I bet people missed the little 4 bar original hulk tv series tv theme right there when he's in Mexico.....the piano part

cameos by lou ferrigno and bill bixby (courtship of eddie's father on a tv screen) were subtle and cool! the movie was typical but well acted.
i missed it but then i did not know the theme music.

hehehe..yeah..there's little easter eggs, etc that one misses first time watching the movie due to the action going on....but watch again 2 and 3rd time and you will see them..
one hint I will give for one is at the very end when beth and rob are in the gondola and he pans the camera out through the cage and you see the ship on the horizon...did you catch the splash down near the ship???


soooo...did you catch 'everything' in that movie yet??:)....took me the 3rd time to really start catching the majority of things..

How would I know if I did, or didn't?  Is there a checklist?

We watched Cloverfield Friday night and it was exactly what I had hoped for, which is a subwoofer-pumping big-screen spectacle, loud and frantic and lots of fun.

It wasn't great cinema by any means, but I do wish there were more action movies like this, lean and streamlined and without all the b.s. and cuteness that gets heaped onto every Hollywood action flick these days.

yeah...I loved cloverfield..
also got finished watching One missed call....kind of fell short with me compared to the Grudge.....

I just watched The Mist last night. Anyone have any opinions? I know the ending provoked a lot of mixed reactions - some hated it, some loved it. I'm not sure how I feel, frankly. I certainly didn't like it as much as I did Cloverfield, which I thought was scarier and, from a "monster movie" perspective, was more realistic and "possible" (!) Since most reviews of The Mist tended to be good ones, I would have to say I was mildly disappointed, but would still recommend the film to fans of the SF/horror blend subgenre.

I definitely recommend this....some very awesmome music.....

so go download it and enjoy..:)

Sorry to hear this Jim....very sad day indeed..

P.S. email me if you need help in uploading and making that available for everyone to download off of your website...


greetings friends,
i was at my aa home group this morning. near the end of the speaker's message, he said something about his therapist, dave - that he had died recently. i was shocked! dave is one of the best friends i have ever had. we got sober together starting 20 years ago (he got there about 6 months before me) and we played softball together for 2 years in the mid 90's. he was a total class act and a dear friend. we did not, however, socialize together very often. our face to face friendship was almost exclusively at meetings or at trainings when we worked for the same rehab center.
anyway, dave had had chronic back problems for years - since the last year we played ball together. he was off work on sick leave when he began developing headaches and blurry vision. he went to the doctor and got some tests. he was diagnosed with cancer and died within three weeks - somewhere around january 12. i was away that weekend in wilkes barre where my father is recuperating from open heart surgery so i did not hear it announced at any meetings.
when the speaker talked about it i just sat stiff as a board and then began shaking, then crying, gently. i am still stunned. i hadn't seen dave since some time in june or july and he was doing great. his son had just turned 6 and was playing baseball and dave was so proud. (he and his wife had tried to have kids for years and finally were blessed 6 years ago with a son - luke. dave was 52. kathy is about 45.)
well, i have been working on some experimental and fairly dark pieces for a set that had no direction. i sat down this afternoon and polished a couple of the pieces and finished two wip's - including one alternate version. the spectre looms suddenly should be available for free download at www.rigelorionis.com late next week. it is a jim brenholts release and is dedicated to my good friend dave k - also a lover of ambient space music. (he was very twisted - he liked most of my stuff, too.)
i am extremely saddened by this turn of events. i thank all of you for your support.

heheheh...you just like having that movie theater like experience with that 90 foot picture on the wall don't you ;D

Every time I go to Costco I see several people wheeling out $1000+ plasma sets, one after another.  Not to say there won't be new technologies that will replace plasma, or that LCD doesn't compete already.... and I'll be the first to say, our HD projector is just miles and miles better than any plasma set out there (though it's not viewable in a bright room)

Everything and Nothing / Re: This new SMF forum
« on: January 09, 2008, 06:51:53 PM »
I guess no one likes little ol me then:)


This Forum includes an optional feature called "Karma" which allows users (at least somewhat established users, who have registered and posted a few times) to give positive or negative karma points to users who contribute something positive or negative to the Forum.

So...

Someone who creates an interesting topic, or who posts an insightful post, or a good CD review, might receive positive karma. 

Someone who breaks a Forum rule, or posts something inappropriate, or even who posts a "waste of space" comment, might receive negative karma.

I've turned on the karma option so we can experiment with it a bit.  If it's used frivolously or spitefully, I'll just disable it, but if it can be used for a sort of "peer review" to encourage people to contribute, and discourage people from acting like fools, then we'll keep it.

The karma points show up under your name & avatar, each time you post.


is there a way to tell who gave us karma ratings?

Everything and Nothing / Re: What are your plans and goals in 2008?
« on: January 08, 2008, 05:45:20 PM »
hahaha..I have to ask, Really, can any of us be 'Mentally Fit':) muhahahahah


Yes - I love this topic - I'm the culprit for the 2006 and 2007 versions of this thread... :)  really glad you fired up a new one!

Once and for all - I'm buying a new soundcard and recording again.    Recording again has been my plan for about 4 years now (if you could still see the old threads, you'd laugh...)...   This is the year!   

Heidi and I have already talked about getting a new soundcard since my Aardvark is tied to Win98 - and I don't feel like trying to get it to work in XP.   I might still use the old computer for a drum machine - we'll see.   I have a goal of writing a few songs this year and maybe, just maybe, getting a release ready to send out as a demo.

We've already moved a large chair out of my studio and half of my bass amp is in next to my synths for the first time in 5 years (the other half of the amp is at my mother-in-laws - we had a great jam session on New Years Eve... :)  it's coming home soon...).   I'm toying with getting a new effects box as a present to myself, and Heidi thinks I should buy a decent guitar.   I'm definitely getting the sound card - we'll see about the rest. 

Beyond music my goal is to continue getting healthier and losing weight.   It was quite the weird year for my health last year.   I think I'm on the right track now with regular exercise, eating right, vitamins, and regular doctor visits.   

My wife and I have these sort of running resolutions to be...

* physically fit
* financially fit
* mentally fit

I've been working on those three for about 5 months now and things are looking a little better in the world.

Heidi and I plan to hike more - that's the biggie for us.  I'm not an outdoor person, never have been.  We went hiking once last fall and I loved it.   We also bought bikes and I can't wait for the weather to clear up a bit to get out and ride!   I'm riding indoors this winter to hopefully have the muscles built up to actually be able to go a decent distance next year.

actually Mike, OLED is an enhancement to LCD....typical LCD as of today so far use just basic flourscent lighting for the backlight and the screen pixels, but by switching over to OLED as a backlight, it will improve the contrast, colors, etc of an LCD screen...in fact, Samsung already has a model out that uses OLED techology...in fact, they are also incorparating it into DLP's too...:

Darren, you're right that plasma screens use more electricity than comparably-sized LCD screens.  You're also right that Sony is doing LCD sets and not Plasma sets, at least next year.  But as for Plasma "not going to last much longer," do you realize you're talking about a technology that is seeing massive growth, not a downturn? 

Also, OLED coming into play (which will not happen, for large-size TV screens, during 2008 or maybe even 2009) is not something that will lead to the increased acceptance of LCD over Plasma.  OLED will be a competing technology to both LCD and Plasma (you seem to imply that it's some sort of enhancement to LCD technology), so if you're proposing that OLED is a technology to wait for (just try to find an OLED television in stores, any size screen, at any price) then a person should buy neither Plasma nor LCD.
