Last night's Sgu had me warming my hand to bitch slap just about everyone on the ship. And I enjoyed every minute of it.
The Set Up
Chloe walks through an empty version of the Destiny and we quickly can see that she is dreaming. The dream quickly turns into a nightmare as Chloe sees herself being sucked up into the hole where the aliens took her last week, then dumped into the vat of water. Chloe sees her mother who can't get her out of the container. Then the figure of her mother disappears and we see the scene from "Space" where the alien approached her tank. She wakes up. What the hell did the aliens do to them?
After telling Scott that she is going for a walk, Chloe comes across Dr. Rush, who shares her fears of them not being safe from the aliens just yet.

Nearly nine years after September 11th, Hollywood is still figuring out just what to do with the tragedy, the war on terror, and related subjects. On one hand, of course, the staunchly apolitical Iraq War indie The Hurt Locker just won the Best Picture Oscar. On the other hand, Paul Greengrass's Green Zone -- a partisan tract on a nine-figure budget -- bombed at the box-office last weekend, proving that audiences are still cautious about broaching the subject as entertainment. The most successful attempt to distill current events for mass consumption has also been the best: Ridley Scott's Body of Lies took a step back from the hot-button issues and snuck devastating commentary on our Middle East quagmire into a breathless spy thriller.
On the other hand, documentary filmmakers, blessed with reduced commercial expectations, have been able to attack the subject from all directions, to the point where »

Lucky is the reverse. An exploration of that other American Dream, getting something for nothing. I’m sure the emotions it will conjure will be utterly different than what Spellbound inspired. - Veteran director Jeffrey Blitz (Spellbound, Rocket Science—2007 Sundance Film Festival Directing Award winner) has skillfully crafted a revealing look at the way one’s identity is undoubtedly turned upside down after the big payout. Thoroughly involving, Lucky cleverly strips off the veneer and shatters our perceptions about the ultimate American dream. - Sundance Film Guide Eric Lavallee: Can you discuss the genesis of this project – how did the initial idea come about and at what point did you know that you wanted to commit to the idea of making this? Jeffrey Blitz: After Spellbound, I was rummaging around for my next documentary. Sean Welch and I would pitch one another potential movies by sending »
So you've just finished a great cue, and the director decides he doesn't like it at all - "scrap it, start again". Well that was a bit of a waste of music wasn't it? Not necessarily...
Selling and licensing your unused, or even used tracks and cues in some cases, can be a great way to supplement your income as a composer in your spare time. There are literally hundreds of websites out there (Music Libraries), where you can upload and sell your tracks as mp3 downloads for people to listen to on their ipod, or where you can even license your tracks to potential clients for films, video games, websites and more. I can't remember where it was, but I read online recently that over 1/3 of the music industry in America is based on music licensing - if thats even anywhere close to being true, it gives you an »
