Composer Daniel Licht, Known for ‘Dexter’, Dies at 60
Television, film, and video games composer Daniel Licht, best known for his work on Showtime’s “Dexter,” died late Wednesday following a battle with cancer. He was 60. Originally from Detroit, Licht’s first major work was scoring the 1991 horror film “Children of the Night.” His compositions caught the attention of Clive Barker, who tapped Licht to score “Hellraiser: Bloodline.” Licht scored numerous horror films but also forayed into more mainstream fare like the Ben Stiller film “Permanent Midnight,” and indies like “The Winner” and “Cowboy Up.” Licht’s work on “Dexter” was well regarded, and each season’s soundtrack was released for sale.

Daniel Licht, ‘Dexter,’ ‘Children of the Corn’ Composer, Dies at 60

Daniel Licht, ‘Dexter,’ ‘Children of the Corn’ Composer, Dies at 60
Daniel Licht, composer for TV’s “Dexter,” died of cancer late Wednesday. He was 60.

Licht scored all eight seasons of “Dexter,” the Showtime serial-killer drama, from 2006 to 2013. Although he also wrote music for movies and other TV projects, it was his quirky music for “Dexter” – employing unusual sounds using bones, knives, scissors, duct tape, wine glasses, didgeridoo, Irish harp and other instruments – that became his best-known work.

Seven albums of “Dexter” music, all featuring his scores, were released. Licht himself played many of the percussion instruments in a 10-minute orchestral suite of “Dexter” music performed live at Poland’s Krakow Film Music Festival in 2015.

Said “Dexter” executive producer Clyde Phillips: “Dan was an incredibly talented musician and composer, but most of all, he was a dear friend. His passing leaves all of us a bit quieter, a bit sadder, and without the gift of his music and his love

'Sweet Home Alabama's' Bubba Thompson on beers, the Bible, Salma Hayek and the 'Cowboy Code'

  • Pop2it
Fan favorite finalist Bubba Thompson from Cmt's "Sweet Home Alabama" has written a book about love, dating, and the uniquely debonaire ways of a real cowboy. But before you read the Alabama charmer's book, check out Bubba's answers to our "Survey Says" questions:

What is your current computer desktop picture?

Open sky -- there's nothing better to look at for the soul.

What would you want to be written on your tombstone?

He lived an honest life and knew how to "Cowboy Up."

Do you believe in karma?

The way you treat others is the most important thing in a cowboy's life. Honoring and respecting others, your faith, your animals and your land -- it all comes back to you as karma in the end. This is one of the main themes in my new book.

What was the last lie you told?

"I only had one beer."

Do you have any strange phobias?

The Client List Review: Something for the Ladies

  • TVfanatic
"Cowboy Up" was a fun filler episode of The Client List.

It was really needed after the first couple episodes of the season and the tension of Kyle's return, the police searches and worry about Riley's future. Her future is hardly settled, but she was in a better place this week and less stressed. It was nice to get back to "normal," as normal as things can get for Riley Parks, that is.

Yikes. If Kyle is telling the truth, the copper wire he stole was only worth $20,000, but the creep Riley visited last week plans on lying about how much was stolen so he can scam the insurance company.

Therefore, he told the police it was worth $80,000. Now he knows who Riley is, that she's willing to give him money - and everything with that situation is just bad, bad, bad. Thankfully, it was just a teeny slice of the hour.
