Anonymous: who are some of your favorite film score composers? or maybe just all time favorite scores? i always love your instrumental mixes and would love to have some other stuff to listen to. thanks!!!!

If the following names are attached to a picture, it generally gets me excited: Rachel Portman, Dario Marianelli, Max Richter, Abel Korzeniowski. For bigger pictures: Clint Mansell, Hans Zimmer, Danny Elfman, and there’s a reason John Williams is a king. They all have such different styles, but those are my favorites. A score can stand alone as an artistic work, but I like it best when it complements a film I have treasured and enjoyed.

This will be very telling in my list of favorite scores. Note: not all of the ones I’m listing have composers I think are always strong, and these are mostly incredibly modern—I’m happy to amend this list with older composers if you or anyone else wants. I’m also not including TV, though there has been some fantastic TV scoring lately. If you’d like to see a list of that just shoot me another ask :

czaaritsa replied to your post: “from a readers perspective: does first person always kill a fic ?”:
im a rlly big fan of a very subjective third person like grrm does, with a lot of character thoughts etc, not so much 1st person. it doesnt usually distract me from th story but idk how much it adds. it really depends.

This is my instinct too. But I realized how hard it is to establish some structure points in third person.

hermione replied to your post: “from a readers perspective: does first person always kill a fic ?”:
my immediate thought is “ugh” but then i thought about all the books i enjoyed that used first person, like gone girl. it can be done and done well

I juuuuust finished Gone Girl, and realized it and The Likeness (and many many other books I’ve been referencing for this project including A Year of Magical Thinking) are written in first person and I just rewrote a chapter to see how it reads in first person and it already feels so much nicer. I’m at a crossroads. GRRRRRR.

I am not the first person you loved.

You are not the first person I looked at with a mouthful of forevers.

We have both known loss like the sharp edges of a knife. We have both lived with lips more scar tissue than skin.

Our love came unannounced in the middle of the night.

Our love came when we’d given up on asking love to come.

I think that has to be part of its miracle.

This is how we heal.

I will kiss you like forgiveness. You will hold me like I’m hope. Our arms will bandage and we will press promises between us like flowers in a book. I will write sonnets to the salt of sweat on your skin. I will write novels to the scar of your nose. I will write a dictionary of all the words I have used trying to describe the way it feels to have finally, finally found you.

And I will not be afraid of your scars.

I know sometimes it’s still hard to let me see you in all your cracked perfection, but please know:

Whether it’s the days you burn more brilliant than the sun or the nights you collapse into my lap, your body broken into a thousand questions, you are the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.

I will love you when you are a still day.

I will love you when you are a hurricane.

“No,” said Luna, observing him with those oddly misty, protuberant eyes. “I don’t suppose you do. That man the Death Eaters killed was your godfather, wasn’t he? Ginny told me.” Harry nodded curtly, but found that for some reason he did not mind Luna talking about Sirius. He had just remembered that she, too, could see Thestrals.

One simply siphons the excess thoughts from one’s mind, pours them into the basin, and examines them at one’s leisure. It becomes easier to spot patterns and links, you understand, when they are in this form.

  • I’m not gonna go as far as saying this is the remix R. Kelly should be known for ("Ignition" forever), but it’s real good. Get out there, mix it up, T.G.I.F.
