* * * * * WELCOME * * * * *

Hey Kids! Do you like the rock n' roll? Too bad. This blog is going to be my personal little space where I ramble on about my love for film & television scores.
Well, that's the plan anyways...who knows? I might just steer off into a few different directions in the future (like hiding crudely drawn pictures of bunny rabbits eating other bunny rabbits in your local supermarket)...but for now, scores is what it's all about.
When I was kid I had a fondness for the scores from the Star Wars & Indiana Jones films by John Williams, but what kid, growing up in the 80's, didn't? Besides that weird little boy down the street, who liked to duct tape his head to fire hydrants...but we won't go there. Sure, I had old LP's and cassettes by Bruce Springsteen, The Beatles and Pink Floyd (and possibly a few Raffi and Fred Penner albums as well...shhhh), but I found I quite enjoyed movie soundtracks as well. Ghostbusters and Back To The Future, being the first. Yeah, I liked the Ray Parker Jr. and Huey Lewis songs....but Elmer Bernstein and Alan Silvestri's scores sparked some interest for me as well.
It wasn't until 1988, when a ghostly little comedy starring Michael Keaton rolled into cineplex's everywhere and the opening notes of the main titles played over the opening credits, that's when I knew I must go out and buy my first real film score.
And that's where we begin...

Leave behind this sinful music and ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST as your SAVIOUR!

Eternity is a really long time. Don't ruin it by listening to EVIL MUSIC.

If you or someone close to you listens to this music, and has not accepted God, please do so today. The following prayer can save you or someone that you love.

Say: "Oh God, save my soul. I'm so sorry that I have sinned against you, but I have come home. I will serve you, Lord, the rest of my life. Deliver me from all my sinful habits. Set me free! I do believe Jesus died on Calvary for me, and I believe in His blood, that there is power in His blood to wash away all my sins, all my sins!"

Say: "Come into my heart, Jesus; come on in, Jesus. Come on in!"

If you meant it, He has come. If you meant it, Jesus is yours. Start reading your Bible, pray daily and believe that somebody's listening; His name is Jesus.

Dear Raul,

I am all for you being into a God, I really am. If you feel that your belief in some sort of angelic afterlife will make your current state any more appealing, than by all means, do it. And I understand that you read a book that told you to spread the good word, and it appears that have gone ahead and ran with that. Good on you. But honestly, do you really think that coming to a blog that covers film scores, and calling it EVIL MUSIC is going to change even one person? Don't you think that it's more likey that all you have accomplished is made yourself look ridiculous, and hampered your cause in the meantime? I'm serious. I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

maybe he thought Roger Rabbit was the Anti-Christ.....either that or Alec Baldwin ate baby goats then spat their mutilated remains out on his alter made out of Geena Davis' teeth and fingernails.
