Update on Band

Well, on Monday, I leave for Band Camp. Yeah. No, not really. I am really not looking forward to going at all, and I guess that’s my own fault.

I went to the band camp kick-off thing today. I must admit that I wasn’t expecting a whole lot , but I sure ended up suprised. I think I actually took a lot from what the speaker had to say and I really enjoyed it.

I did the exat thing last year, worrying about band camp, and I knew it was just going to happen again. I really should listen to the inner-me more often.

Goodbye Jerry Goldsmith

bq. Jerry Goldsmith, one of Hollywood’s most prominent composers who left an indelible mark on Star Trek, died Wednesday night after a long battle with cancer. He was 75. Goldsmith’s compositions have virtually defined the musical personality of Star Trek since the debut of “Star Trek: The Motion Picture” in 1979. That score went on to be the theme song for Star Trek: The Next Generation. Goldsmith also wrote the title music for Star Trek: Voyager, along with several other Trek movies including “Star Trek: First Contact,” which many fans believe to be one of the most inspired scores ever written for a genre film (or any film for that matter). He’s even left his mark on the Star Trek: The Experience attraction in Las Vegas, with original music for “Borg Invasion 4D.” He also scored “Star Trek V: The Final Frontier,” “Star Trek: Insurrection,” and two years ago, “Star Trek Nemesis.”

His music has always been a great inspiration and a key reason why I watch Star Trek. He will be missed, by me and others.


Today I Drove

Well today, I got my permit. It was fairly easy to get, but I’m not entirely sure I want it anymore.

My parents made me drive home from the movies (I saw I, Robot — twas good). Let me say. it was one of the most frightening experiences of my life. Yea, that’s trhough and off my chest. I have to do more tomorrow, and this time on bigger roads. Backing up is tomorrow too. At least I don’t have to deal with freeway’s quite yet. *sigh*
