Among the many FSM posts I've had the pleasure to read over the past thirteen plus years that make me smile whenever I think of them include the following:

1) Onyabirri referring to Lucas-and-Spielberg cinematic claptrap as "Neoconservative Kitsch."

2) Greg "riotengine" Espinoza's post about gerbils "being into" Richard Gere rather than the other way around.

3) Thor feeling "uncomfortable" about Josh Mitchell's "Now Playing" thread created with Thor's limited musical interests in mind.

4) Josh Mitchell referring to musical footnote a-ha as a one-hit wonder.

5) Max Bellochio's Alan Fivehouse posts...every damned one of them.

6) Anzaldiman being the first FSMer to befriend me (in the Buddy Ebsen, R.I.P. thread.) Much appreciated, pal.

7) Jehannum's riposte to a certain other FSMer in the "Favorite Simon & Garfunkel Song?" thread.

8) William McCrum's incredulity at my having bought shoes from Northern Ireland.

9) Preston Neal Jones' self-given "less life left to live" nickname in the "Why Don't They Drink the Beer in Commercials?" thread.

10) Tall Guy's "There's a conspiracy against Leeds United" posts, all written with the passion of a level-headed fanatic.

11) Graham Watt's remark about yours truly, which ended up ensconced in my profile: "Jim Phelps can't reconcile in his mind his three obsessions: Darkly nihilistic films with an intellectual slant, 1969-75; Darkly nihilistic film scores with an intellectual slant, 1969-75; The sight of grown men running around a field chasing a pig's bladder."

12) A since-banned FSMer writing: "Ask me anything about 2001: A Space Odyssey...as if he knew the answers.

A Leo DiCaprio-as-Gatsby toast to you all, gents. More favorite posts to follow...

That post made me smile too, if only for its downright ignorance.

At the time, I did not realize that the phrase "Reaganite Cinema" was used in academic circles. I may like my phrase better. wink

How do you do a search? I am coming up blank on everything.

Go to Google and type in what you want (with speech marks for a specific phrase if necessary), and add at the end site:filmscoremonthly.com

e.g.

"john williams" "jim phelps (member)" site:filmscoremonthly.com

I enjoy rereading Jim Phelps' James Coburn/Steven Keats ruminations in THE YAKUZA & EDDIE COYLE threads. (sitting in a bar in Tokyo, turtleneck shirt, flared pants, etc)

“toast to you all, gents.” Gents? Gents???? What happened to the fairer sex? Hey, Bill, don’t worry. Jim did say he’d post more. And I do like his Hemingway and Saturday Night Fever topics.

Two of my favorite threads were long ago. One was from Howard who was shuf-shuffling snow on a winter night. Pure poetry. I loved our older Buffy thread where Ron, Cooper, several others and I dissected weekly Buffy episodes.

I like the threads that delve deeply into certain scores like Deputy Riley’s posts, especially his Hunger Games analysis. Yavar does a great job with Goldsmith. I liked my own analysis of To Kill A Mockingbird. I always enjoyed our dialogue about the novel too and assigning Howard homework. Patting myself on the back with all humility, I enjoyed my topic on the book about Moross’ The Big Country as well as my Thank You thread dedicated to Jon Broxston and James Southall who still continue to give us great essays on current scores. Actually, I guess I like my own topics. smile

Of course, I enjoy the heart-felt topics we get from EDW and the smart-ass ripostes from Bill Carson.

I also like the Rate the Movie from 1-10 topic.

I’m sure I’ll think of more.

You’d better... smile

I remember fondly Anonie’s Quo Vadis analysis, and our dear CAT’s contributions to my limericks thread and her passionate support of Rozsa. Henry/Morricone should get some kind of award for his series highlighting some of the more obscure Ennio scores.

The OTT thread was gloriously inappropriate, and it was a shame that it was eventually locked although I understood the reasons. I enjoy the occasional revisit to the Unexpected Items at the Checkout thread, although it’s a bit of an in-joke and not necessarily as inclusive as it might be.

I love how music-mad Mitch can tell you on what date in 1992 he bought such-and-such a CD and probably how many times he’s played it since! Dogbelle’s videos are beautiful and more people should take the time to watch them. Thanks to everyone on the various association football threads. I’m in touch with several fsmers off the board either regularly or very occasionally, and I appreciate all you guys (and gals, if one still has to add that!)

And very little cheers me up more than bitching about stuff over the medium of text with Bill. See, pal, hadn’t forgotten you...

3) Thor feeling "uncomfortable" about Josh Mitchell's "Now Playing" thread created with Thor's limited musical interests in mind..

Just to clarify, it wasn't about my 'limited musical interests' (as I probably have a wider taste in music than most people here), but rather some of my favourite genres and artists that Josh had picked up on.

I'll add more, TG. You are an awesome man for adding "gals." Also I must add how wonderful your Limericks Topic is. We are due for some Christmas limericks. We mustn't forget our Haiku topics.

I'm glad for the reminders of Dragon's great entertainment threads, CAT's Rozsa topics and Morricone's in-depth analysis of Ennio's score. (I really miss CAT.)

Oops!! I can read but I obviously can't comprehend what I read. I thought "posts" and threads meant the same thing. Duh on me.
