I believe it will come to pass.

OMG! OMG! OMG!

But Thor, the OP isn't ignoring that the original release exists, tangentially or otherwise, in his pursuit of his holy grail.
He clearly illustrates its tracks and run time in his opening post.
You entered the thread to announce why any expansion was worth it, when the original edition was fine, or sufficient, or whatever.
I guess you got your answer.
I have no beef with you in general and enjoy reading your reviews and opinions, but can see nothing here but another attempt to derail a wish list thread with your well documented opinion.
And suddenly acting all butt hurt over some innocuous remarks (from the two kevins) isn't gonna wash.

Regarding some posts in this thread.
I believe Thor chose...poorly.
But I believe Roger chose...wisely.

I know. As I said, it's a different topic that is tangentially related to this 'holy grail' thing, in other words it does not apply to this particular thread.

You and I apparently have a very different view of what "innocuous remarks" are. Questioning the use of a term, which is what I did, is innocous. Throwing around faux strawman psychoanalysis about my motivations or properties, is not. Nor are personal insults like 'histrionics', 'troll' etc.

So what better word could I have chosen, over 'histrionics', that would better illustrate your years long convention of entering threads to tell us all that lengthy, expanded score releases are bad/superfluous, while tightly edited, shorter original editions are good?

First of all, I didn't do that in this thread. I'm not really interested in discussing the age-old C&C issue anymore. Everyone knows where I stand on that issue anyway. That you think that was the goal of my post, is - as I said earlier - due to you not having read my posts properly. However, I AM very interested in the changed way we speak about soundtracks these days, and the marginalization of OSTs in our discussion climate. Using the term 'holy grail' about an expanded desire, such as this thread, is one example. Another is when someone starts a thread and asks something like "So, will we ever see a release of Goldsmith's MULAN?" without at any point acknowledging that it actually has a release already. These things interest me. They scare me, but they also interest me.

Second, 'histrionics' is a very negative word that denotes hysteria. The only hysteria I tend to see in these threads are by my opponents, who respond as if I killed a member of their family. You could have used a less confrontational word, like 'dedication', for example. Heck, I'd even take 'obsessed'! But you seemed very intent on picking a fight from the get-go, without really reading what I was talking about.

And yet you were the one who started with all the swearing and stomping.

Not at all. I used the term 'flying f'**k' about my own lack of interest, it was not directed at anyone.

It was a bit hysterical though.
Histrionical* even?

*maybe not a real word.

Well, that's your projection again. I can promise you I was - and am - perfectly calm. smile

You should join up in the "Cheers" meet some time (no more excuses about being on work Zooms all day!). I think you and I need to have a drink together; it's been kinda tense between us lately. It helps to meet in person. Leaves less room for 'distant psychoanalysis'.

Are you asking me out on a date, Thor? big grin

Sure. But hopefully with others as well.

Yeah, you don't want to end up in Thor's freezer later.

Interesting turn of conversational events as usual. I turn my back and miss a war.
I meant no offence Thor. I’ve missed previous threads where you did the whole battle of the C&C issue so apologies for ‘poking the bear’ but I was curious.
Really hope a longer version of this appears soon.... although the way it’s going in the UK I won’t be able to buy it anywhere big grin.
And after this one.... BRING ON HIGHLANDER!!! big grin big grin

UH!
I AM PERFECTLY HAPPY WITH THE 12 MINUTES OF HIGHLANDER SCORE RELEASED ON THE OFFICIAL ALBUM!
IN FACT I THINK IT IS TOO MUCH!
THEY SHOULD RELEASE A NEW CD WITH ONLY THE MAIN THEME PERFORMED BY THE GREATEST FILM COMPOSERS OF ALL TIMES: HAROLD FALTERMEYER AND GIORGIO MORODER!
NOTHING IN THIS WORLD WILL CHANGE MY MIND ABOUT THIS AND YOU ALL MUST AGREE WITH ME OTHERWISE I WILL REPEAT IT AGAIN!
