The first titles are months away, nonetheless it may be a good idea to restart this popular thread.

Caleb has done a great job providing music for many marathons. Currently he is down on Wall Street "sticking it to the man" in a peaceful organized protest, and barring the possibility that the G-men make him Whitey Bulger's room mate, we look forward to seeing him in February.

Last year Mrs F and I did the pre-show and break music selections and enjoyed it greatly. We volunteer again this year and welcome any suggestions regarding songs that would fit with a given title or a general theme.

You guys did a bang up job last year. Consider the baton officially passed.
I'll chime in with suggestions as the inspiration hits.
 

Dinner break? What's a dinner break?

I'm greatly appreciative of the efforts of all those involved in putting together the music for the event. My only regret is that we haven't put together a system to have the music play at a bit louder (but not excessive) volume, and have it be uniformally piped through the theater.

A request for next year perhaps?

A score I always listen to in preparation for the 'thon!

     There is a way of doing that, but youd have to rent some equipment.

Stop, stop. *spit take*, rent.....(holding sides) some.....(trying to catch breath)equipment.  Comedy is not dead on the board.....
 

I bring you peace. It may be the peace of plenty and content or the peace of unburied death.

     I aim to please!
     But really, all yuks aside, by renting a minor piece of equipment you could send the signal into the booth & out into the theatre's sound system.
     If you could stop choking into the toilet, of course....

I'm all for that and so, I'm sure, are the nice people who have the misfortune of sitting directly in front of the single loudspeaker that currently pumps the music and the announcement mike. In the early morning hours it was with a heavy heart that I looked out onto their tranquil, sleeping faces and punched in R.E.M's "End of the World."

Speaking of "End of the World", is the first hint of the Marathon lineup upon us? Could LA be sending a secret coded message with his suggestion for a SCORE? Roll Eyes

     Well, if you can get the Thon to pony up, the thing shouldnt be that expensive.  I'll research it & get back to you.  Who knows?  Maybe you can get the earth to move, & we'll see if Frank laughs & chokes at that!

     I know for a fact that not a single movie has been chosen or booked.
     So.....no. Sorry!Cheesy

     PS  If there are any soundtracks you need, I can probably help with that.

You say get the Thon to pony up as if there is some board that opens up its' collective wallet and pays for this stuff.  Most of the stuff that you see is donated.  Stuff that costs money has to be approved by the  G man hisself.  That's where you have to go for this type of stuff unless one of the many wonderful volunteers can come up with something gratis.  Who knows that has happened.  However, if it costs money G and only G can green light it.

     Thats what you guys need!  A Board!  What a splendid idea!
     Cant wait to see you all put that into motion!

     Of this, Frank, I am aware.  But if you people are truly interested in pumping the break music into the theatre's sound system, I can let you know how much it would cost.
     And it wouldnt be much.
     Hope youve been well!  Havent seen you since the Jaws screening!

I'm all for finding a sound system that goes up to eleven! Wink

11/11/11 Is Nigel Tufnel Day

Quote:
Enthusiasts of loud (if not necessarily critically acclaimed) music know all about Tufnel. He's the fictional rocker from the semifictional band Spinal Tap who loves to turn his amps up to 11 when he needs that "extra push over the cliff." What better time to celebrate and salute the man and his technique than on 11/11/11?

My only regret, back when I was programming between-film music, was never including the Carpenters' "Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft (The Recognized Anthem of World Contact Day)."

Note: A special prize will go out at SF37 to the first person who can tell me (right here) the only song I played between films -- I'm pretty sure it was SF28 -- that was actually a recording I made with me on guitar and vocal.
