Rest In Peace James Horner

Very sad to hear about the passing of composer James Horner. 

I watched a great piece of footage in my Film Music course last year of Horner conducting the orchestra for Something Wicked This Way Comes. I got chills watching the piece come to life (so wishing I could find that footage now!) - he really knew what Halloween sounded like. 

Here is another piece I have always loved, not only because I admire Horner's work on Jumanji (one of my favorite movies), but because this one makes me remember Robin Williams and his great performance in the film. Missing him, too.

A Change in the Wind Says I

 The insane semester finally ended, but not before I got the ever-evil strep throat...

Thank goodness that hell has ended now! I was able to graduate just as I was getting better! Feels good to be done with school once and for all...

At a very transitional stage now. You know, where Dustin Hoffman is in the scuba outfit at the bottom of the pool? That stage. Using this free time to write, improve my health, and figure out which road to take. Here's to a whole new direction, but staying me, all the way!
