What's the big deal about this guy.


He waves a Harry Potter wand around while people play music. Anyone can do that.

yeah bugs bunny did it better anyhow

He sold his soul for 30 pieces, and is now living the final days of his reward.

reply

He is a genius

Don't hate the guy who invented Coca-Cola.

Star Wars opening song.

Why don't you compose a original song for the opening title credits?

Post it here and then we can judge if it is better then the original.

reply

A better suggestion is for someone that doesn't get it to watch Jaws opening scene with the lady swimming in the ocean with the sound turned off. If you don't understand what he does then, you never will.

reply

😀 I was debating which one to use.

Since Star Wars was a bit more complex, I went with that.

You do know my post was tongue-in-cheek, don’t you?

I kind of figured, most people aren't that ignorant on that site, it's full of movie nerds. What is good or kidding emoji?😉?

We don't get tone or facial cues texting.

I know but it’s sort of my humor style. Even in person I employ deadpan humor a lot, so it looks like I could be serious, but I usually try to have a ridiculous point that tips off that I’m not being serious. But you’re right, in both cases (text and live) sometimes it gets taken wrong. Although Part of the fun is getting yelled at for being an ignorant fool, which was the type of people in general that I was poking fun at in a roundabout way.

It would have been much for fun for everyone if you posted a unique opening Star Wars theme using a kazoo.

reply

Hey! I did that once. A friend of mine and I were playing around with kazoos back in the day and played the Star Wars theme on them! It was goofy but fun!

reply

His score for Star Wars is one of the components that saved the movie from Lucas' terrible sense of direction. The editor of the movie actually saved it the most, but Williams' score is a close second.

reply

He's a great composer. Simple, even for you.

reply

Well allow me to pose a follow up question then.

Derp?

reply

Just keep patting yourself on the back, son.

reply

Will do, gramps.

reply

I'm much happier growing up when movies were good, rather than now, where Gen ZZ's like you will suck down anything and call it filet mignon.

reply

Was that back before they invented satire, or has Alzheimer’s addled your brain so much it is beyond your comprehension at this point?

reply

You know, if you could actually write something "satiric," then it would read as such. You're like Alanis Morissette who has zero idea what irony is. Plus, I have a 140 IQ, unlike your IQ that's the same as your shoe size.

reply

Suuuuuuure ya do. Look at the little baby. Hello little baby!

reply

Yeah, yapping more isn't helping your position.

reply

Ha ha ha ha! My post went so far over your head, you didn’t even feel the wind. It’s so obvious, crappiest Holmes portrayer, I’m growing a be-heared.

reply

At least you’re smart enough to realize when you’ve been utterly defeated, Methuselah. Next time you’ll know better than to engage your superior. I do feel bad about making you cry though. Catch ya on the flip side, slappy.

reply

Lol! He the best composer ever for all those great classic movies. Stick to Transformers, kid.

reply

I hated the Transformers movies. At least the first one and half of the second because that's all I was able to watch. Although I do like the animated movie from the 80s. (BTW I was just mocking uneducated people in general in this post. The guy is an awesome composer whose works will be part of our culture for the foreseeable future).

reply

I was being sarcastic
