James Horner

I just got a bunch of my favorite James Horner soundtracks signed, which was very gracious of James to do for me. You’ll note that Titanic is not among these, but Aliens is. This should be no surprise to those who know me.

Lost: Season One

A few weeks back I finally got my Lost Season One DVD set back. My friend Sean was kind enough to have JJ Abrams and Damon Lindelof (series creators and producers) sign it for me. JJ is a funny guy, that’s for sure!

Batman Begins

All I need now is my Batman Forever soundtrack to be signed by Elliot Goldenthal, and I’ll have a complete collection of signed Batman feature film soundtracks!

Abrams signed his name – but only after writing what he thought of Michael. 🙂 …

Final Destination 3

This week I was at the Final Destination 3 scoring session, music composed by Shirley Walker. It was a lotta fun, and the movie looks like a delightful romp of Rube Goldberg-inspired “accidents”. Just remind me not to go to Magic Mountain for a while…. Director Jim Wong signed my Final Destination DVD (couldn’t scan it because of the shiny cover), and I also got Shirley to sign my Batman: Mask of the Phantasm CD, which was very nice of …
