Lost Linkage

EW’s Joshua Rich wonders when Josh Holloway will finally get the props he deserves!! AMEN!!!!!!!!! Someone give that guy an Emmy! And also my phone number! A few links for those who are not yet totally sick of reading about the finale:

  • Nikki Stafford’s insanely thorough and enlightening finale recap
  • Jeff Jensen’s always spectacular recap
  • New Yorker Magazine’s gigantic list of unanswered questions
  • And here’s a great interview with Michael Emerson
  • I really do think that every time you play a role well, you are in danger of being identified with that role until the next big thing comes along. My break on the live stage was playing the character Oscar Wilde in Gross Indecency. So for a while, it looked like all I would ever play was flamboyant Englishmen.

    In other news, I’ll be restarting my Daily Dose of Lost once my own recap has been posted! (The recap may be in two parts…so much to mock cover.)

    Bear McCreary’s “Revelations” Score

    June 16th, 2008 § 13 comments § permalink

    If you’re a fan of Battlestar Galactica and you are interested in the music that goes into the show, you really MUST read Bear McCreary’s blog post, which explains how and why he wrote the music for the mid-season finale, “Revelations.”

    The guy’s a genius. The lyrics that he wrote (which are sung by a choir in Samoan and Latin) gave me goosebumps. And it’s humbling to hear that people as brilliant as Mr. McCreary still worry about how the hell they’re going to top themselves.

    SPOILERS for the episode are included! You have been warned!

    I wish we could buy this soundtrack right NOW.

    Lost Season 3 Soundtrack Finally Released!

    June 11th, 2008 § 8 comments § permalink

    For any fans of original soundtracks, the Lost Season 3 soundtrack was finally released last week. Michael Giacchino is back with 2 discs (67 tracks!) of the sometimes disquieting, sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes terrifying, but always amazing music he writes for Lost.

    Buy it here on Amazon!

    My own personal favorite theme from the show is Locke’s – “Locke’d Out Again” from the Season 1 soundtrack is my favorite piece. Desmond and Penny and Sun and Jin also have gorgeous themes, and you cannot deny the Action Sayid music, or the POOT POOT BRUMP (i.e. Ben says something evil, they cut away to commercial, POOT POOT BRUMP).

    An added bonus are Giacchino’s pun-tastic song titles. This time around we’ve got “Leggo My Eko,” “Here Today, Gone to Maui,” “Rushin’ The Russian,” “Benomination of the Temple,” “Weapon of Mass Distraction,” “Through the Locke-ing Glass,” “All Jack’ed Up,” and my favorite, “Jintimidating Bernard.”

    The Charlie songs will break your heart. Just a warning.

    In other news, thanks for all your wonderful comments on my Lost Finale Recap! Up next I’ve got some lists (The Best Nerds, Geeks, and Dorks) and most likely a Battlestar Galactica Season 4 recap after the last episode airs Friday. So keep an eye out. Unless you’re Colonel Tigh, in which case that may be difficult.
