Hi Rob, I get what you’re referring to, but in no way is Goldenthal’s intro to the Batmobile cribbed from Elfman. It’s just big gothic music - Elfman’s sounds like the end of Williams’s intro to Krypton which honestly is just a lift from Also Sprach Zarathustra - but even then Goldenthal isn’t quite dealing with those Read more

Not Elfman’s music at all. It’s more like the kind of music you buy at a royalty free site that is intended to sound like a popular theme, while not implicitly violating any copyright.

That’s not really a hook upon which to hang “this is Elfman music” on.

It’s certainly composed to evoke Elfman’s scores, but the commenter is right: it doesn’t use any of the major themes.

Let us also not forget that then-Gawker/now-Jezebel’s very own Rich was the one who originally posted (for this group of sites) the upskirt shots of Anne Hathaway, another favorite target of the mean girls here. He remembers posting the pics after interviewing her: Read more

For many years, Joss Whedon was so untouchable. I’m glad that Charisma Carpenter is finally being heard. Carpenter stated at DragonCon in 2009 that Whedon fired her for getting pregnant, but there was very little public response. About ten years ago, I was flamed on this very blog for posting the YouTube clip of Read more

I always saw B5 as like one of those classic SF novels that your dad enjoyed when he was a kid, and was always encouraging you to read when you were growing up. And when you finally did read it, there was a lot of it that felt wooden or dated, but you appreciated the ideas and the scope of the story. Read more

I got to meet her at a few cons over the years and she always seemed like one of the most genuinely kind people I ever met. Sweet, patient, and always great to listen to. B5 is easily one of my top 3 sci fi shows of all time and we just keep losing so many wonderful cast members from the show and this one really hurts
