The Warmth Has Gone From The Movies Now.

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 22, 2015, 11:22 PM
I went to see the new Jurassic Park movie just last night, and among other complaints I was left with at the end-

I could not remember hearing ANY musical score during the film! Except for a reuse of the famous John Williams fanfare when they enter the park, I could recall hearing absolutely no soundtrack score.

As a boy growing up, my collection of audio cassette tapes (yes, I'm old) going into my sony walkman was made up almost totally by Motion Picture Soundtracks. In this era (the mid-late 1980s) one man in particular dominated my musical fancy and filled my boundless daydreams with themes;

His name was James Horner.

Tonight, I am devastated to hear of the tragic early loss of this man who shaped SO MANY movies with warmth and humanity. James Horner, an avid pilot was killed earlier today when his Short S-312 Tucano crashed in Los Padres National Forest in Southern California. He was fortunately the only occupant.

Only 61 years old, he doubtlessly had many many more years and films ahead of him. This is a tragedy beyond human loss. I know and believe that his family is surrounded with support on this evening, but it will not be enough to ease the absence of such an extraordinary person human being, father and husband.

For my small part, my heart goes out to the friends and family of James Horner. I hope in time they can feel the support so many of us are sending. :(

My personal favorites among his work have names like Glory, Apollo 13, Star Trek II, Star Trek III, Patriot Games, Clear And Present Danger, Titanic, and probably my favorite of Horner's works,

An American Tail.

God Bless you.

I'll be honest- It's slow going these days. Still picking away at it, but I'm going to Japan later this month and I have a lot of real-life stuff to do.

The good news is that I will have nothing but time to do the comic for 2 months after that. The bad news is my wife and kids will be staying in Japan that time so I will be pretty lonely. Good news for EVA-303.
