  1. The form worked fine for me in Chrome. I don't know what everyone else was seeing, but maybe it has to do with browser plugins or javascript issues? I have a pretty strong set of javascript managers and ad blockers on my browser, but Google Docs was allowed to work fine.
  2. There are ads on the internet? Using my computer, you'd never know. I use Chrome browser, with Ublock Origin and Adblock, and a whole collection of custom rules that I have been tweaking for over 10 years of using adblockers and script stoppers. Let me see if I can paste my custom rule file into the forum here, and you can just copy/paste into your settings. Edit: I can actually export them, so here you go - Ublock Origin custom rules. Then select the list subscriptions to get most of the rules, and these lists are very good - 99% of nonsense is stopped right out with them my-ublock-static-filters_2-13-2016,_12-40-36_AM.txt my-ublock-dynamic-rules_2-13-2016,_12-40-19_AM.txt
  3. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/james-horner-dead-titanic-composer-804365 The two-time Oscar winner, 61, worked on three James Cameron films, two 'Star Trek' movies and classics like 'A Beautiful Mind,' 'Field of Dreams' and 'Apollo 13.' James Horner, the consummate film composer known for his heart-tugging scores for Field of Dreams, Braveheart and Titanic, for which he won two Academy Awards, died Monday in a plane crash near Santa Barbara. He was 61. His death was confirmed by Sylvia Patrycja, who is identified on Horner's film music page as his assistant. "We have lost an amazing person with a huge heart and unbelievable talent," Patrycja wrote on Facebook on Monday. "He died doing what he loved. Thank you for all your support and love and see you down the road." Horner was piloting the small aircraft when it crashed into a remote area about 60 miles north of Santa Barbara, officials said. An earlier report noted that the plane, which was registered to the composer, had gone down, but the pilot had not been identified.

That is my primary role.” His score for Titanic sold a whopping 27 million copies worldwide. His fruitful partnership with Cameron also netted him Oscar noms for original score for the blockbusters Aliens (1986) and Avatar (2009). The pair reportedly were also at work on Avatarsequels.

He also received noms for An American Tail (1986), Field of Dreams (1989), Apollo 13 (1995) and House of Sand and Fog(2003). Always busy, Horner has three films coming out soon: Southpaw, the boxing drama that stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Rachel McAdams and is due in theaters in July; Jean-Jacques Annaud’s Wolf Totem, out in September; and The 33, a drama based on the 2010 mining disaster in Chile that’s set for November. His lengthy film résumé includes The Lady in Red (1979), Wolfen (1981), Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982) and Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1983), Red Heat (1988), Glory (1989), The Rocketeer (1991), Patriot Games (1992), Searching for Bobby Fischer (1993), Jumanji (1995), How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000), Troy (2004) and The Amazing Spider-Man (2012). His father was two-time Oscar-winning art director/set designer Harry Horner (The Heiress, The Hustler). READ MOREJames Horner's Most Memorable Scores: From 'Titanic' to 'Avatar' Horner spoke about the state of his career in a December interview with David Hocquet. “I’m much choosier,” he said.’ “I don’t want to be doing these movies that now 85 or 90 composers want, as opposed to six. And now all these movies, action movies. I don’t get offered all the movies obviously, but I see a lot of them and I do get asked to do a lot of them, and I just know they’re not asking me to do something that I can do something original, they’re asking me to do a formula and I’m too rebellious.”
  4. Anyone ever noticed that Trew seems to always have the highest prices for everything? $350 is way too steep for this, I'd be a buyer at $250 sure - $300 is a maybe.

  6. Lol! It was great seeing everyone again, but it looks like I missed some of the best fun!
  7. Glen, I can tell you stories about Hillary. She is NOT qualified to be a 1st AD, and her previous jobs were as a PA or maybe a Key PA. From that, she suddenly vaulted to the 1st AD position with the other 3 criminals, and all four of them have been co-conspirators for a series of errors in judgement and process for 3 different projects in Savannah now. Safety meetings? They'd never had them. This wasn't an unusual day for them, just wake up and jump right into filming. "We make films by our own rules" as criminal Jody Savin liked to say and told a group of disgusted filmmakers in Savannah just days before the incident. Stealing shots in the NYC subway? If the MTA got hold of them, there would have been hell to pay. Unfortunately, the MTA didn't, and we know the final result of them getting away with bad behavior for so long. Sadly, this was a long time coming. Hopefully none of them will EVER be in a position of authority on anything in the industry again.
  8. I have an entire collection of 200 series stuff, and they are great performers. Miles better than the Senny or AT stuff I had before. I've gotten nearly a 1/4 mile range (not production quality, but enough for signaling) out of them in certain conditions. I also have a couple 210 receivers that I could sell you to get you started, B27 or 28.
  9. It is a matter of respect - Some of the employees might be Hasidic Jewish, some might not be. But it is respectful to be aware of the more restrictive tenets of their faith. Not allowing the computer ordering system to operate or run transactions is the same as a Jewish (or Amish, they do this too) farmer that doesn't work his animals or allow his animals to work on the Sabbath. Everyone gets a day of rest. I like their store and convenience too... But the service at our "usual suspects" like Pro-Sound and Gotham is better and more personal. The staff also tend to be more informed about the products and how we might use them.
  10. Sure... But only if you can guarantee you will be there hosting!
  11. Get well soon Mike! Hope to see you at NAB this year, although I need to sort out my own travel plans to get there.
  12. I thought it had been kinda quiet around here recently...
