    And Amy, my dear precious ever so experienced Amy, grow up! I visited your web site and viewed your photos. For someone who spouts off about having a lifetime of experience blah, blah, blah, with the most esteemed professionals in the world, you must have started your alleged carreer 20 years before you were born! Your photos show a girl of about 25 at the most. So, don't presume to lecture me about experience and professionalism. I out rank you on age alone. I have to be older than your father.
    I'm running out the door and don't have time to reply in detail to all of the very interesting commentary on this thread today, but I couldn't pass this one by.

    Michael - and, I'll leave the patronizing qualifiers out - thank you very much for making my day! All of the pictures on my various sites are fairly current (within the last year on the Wall of Sound and shamanic journeying circle pages, and the Rangermobile pictures are from 2002), and...I'm nearly 20 years older than your estimate. I'm going to be 42 next month. And, for the record, I've spent most of my adult working life in the music industry.

    So anyway....many thanks for your kind compliment!



    Amy (the artist formerly known as Aisling)

    Gah! <shudder> You've got that right.


    Chen's music grew on me over time. I quite like the Crusade Main Title music and the end music (except for the end "music" of "Ruling from the Tomb" which was not music and was hideous.).

    One thing I've noticed about some musicians, they tend to be very strongly opinionated, and sometimes almost totally closed off to the opinions of non-musicians.

    Amen! And some of the greatest people in any universe as I've had made abundantly clear in my fundraising efforts!

    No, no shock. My comment was about participation in a discussion board such as this, not the diversity of B5 fans. Never gave too much thought about how many US fans, and how many worldwide fans there might be, since a B5 fan is a B5 fan to me.

    Very true. A lesson to us all.

    Of course, it's so easy to find the obvious and glaring faults, sometimes we just can't help ourselves. It's just fun!

    I have very limited experience with on-line discussion boards, but there are two things that have always amazed me. One gets discussed a lot, so I won't retread that ground, but I wanted to quickly mention the second.

    I have a great deal of respect for the members who are not native English speakers and come to this board to discuss with us complex scientific concepts, social issues, philosophy, etc. The more limited a person's experience with a language, the more courage it must take to jump in to the deep, nuanced and sometimes harsh conversations that can be found here. SearchingGirl is an inspiring example because you can see the effort. My hat's off to all of you, even if you do it so well, I don't even notice! Thanks for your efforts and your ideas!

    So...my whole life experience can be summed up in the 8 posts you "know?" me from on this forum?

    And you call me jugemental?
    Strawman argument. I never claimed to know you. What I referred to is 8 posts and what's happened as a result of them.

    I'd be a lot less inclinded to complain if I didn't find myself pecked to death every time I post on this forum.

    There is more to life than finding every possible fault in every person one encounters.

    Perhaps if you try being less aggressive? After all, it was you who seemed to be declaring that no opinion on music was valid without being a musician and/or having a degree. Then when somebody actually had credentials you dismissed, belittled and inadvertently complimented her while showing yourself to be an ageist. If that wasn't what you wanted to present then your posts weren't phrased well.

    We want people to post and to have opinions but it might be wise to remember that there's no Only Way to Be or Only Way to Think here.

    One way to start a really good conversation is to simply ask people why they think or feel the way they do. So why not tell us why you like the Chen music? Do you prefer it to Chris Franke's?

    One thing is constant: the cultural gap between the musically informed and the uninformed is as great now or worse than it was when I was earning my degree in music.
    You should expect to be burned right down to the ground for making assumptions without a shred of information to base them on. Several people have already informed you of their musical experience, let me add to that :

    - 12 years of classical piano and organ lessons as well as musictheory from when I was aged 6.

    - Recording composer since I was 13.

    - 25 years of band-experience mostly setting up the bands myself to express specific musical styles.

    - Recording artist for several years.

    - Composer/lyricswriter for other artists as well as for soundtracks for documentaries.

    - Can play piano, organ, synthesizers, guitar, bassguitar. clarinet and anything that can be controlled by a computer(rhythm-machines, sequencers, etcetera).

    So please inform yourself before you post nonsense-statements. Thank you.

    - Anybody can judge music without invalidating it. The trick is not to mind when it comes from laymen. But if you do not want people to judge music then Do Not Ever Play It Before An Audience! This has nothing to do with music-knowledge. Your remark about having to have a musical degree before you can judge music is the ultimate proof that you did not even think when you published your posting.


    This forum is inhabited by numerous loud mouthed idiots.
    Yes, I just anwered a posting of one of them.

    I put most "I hate the Crusade music" complaints in the same round bin.
    Sometimes I'm really happy that I finally decided to register in this forums... because I simply cannot hear that argument any more. I really think that the Chen-Situation is different.

    I for one never hated Sheridan, I never thought "this season sucks" and (to conquer JMS thoughts on that topic) also never thought the Music of Chris Franke sucked... and I've seen A Call to Arms about 5 times now, and it has ALWAYS been a painful experience. It's not about giving chances, it not an objection on trying new things... I just can't stand that "music". Yes, Chen's work was better in Crusade (and even there I would prefer Franke's music), but that doesn't make his composition for "ActA" any better...

    I think manager is the word you are looking for.

    And BTW, chef means Koch/K÷chin in English.

    An interesting view of your life!

    to Michael Malloy:
    I┤m also a newbe here, but I can┤t understand your style of using words. I think, they are very crude. And I┤m not sure, if you are reading the posts really exact, maybe ┤cause of your anger.
    For example I don┤t think Jan means, what you are interpret. I think, if you are longer here in this forum, You would learn, that the most here seem to be VERY nice and helpful people. And I would be glad, to be with them in an elevator or where ever.
    And for me, it┤s not a sign/proof for life-experience and age-authority to use sentenes like `What do you do to your friends, eat them alive?`My 8-year old son would not use such kind of formulation.
    And about degrees....
    I┤ve worked 20 years in a company for special versions ( mass events) as the production chef/leader (?), I can┤t find the correct translation. I started as a normal worker, after a short time I was (repeated) promoted, without been (in the beginning) a specialist. I was the youngest of all and the only female in this position working often 78 hours each week.....
    The most orders were, when other companys with so called `studied persons/specialists┤ managed their projects, failed ( after 1 year time for realising the project) and cry 3 days for the official ending-time for help. We never failed in this years and my colleaugues/collaborators aren┤t studied, but all self-made specialists with really great energie, always willing to learn more and also to look in other spheres, to learn other kinds of handling situations/problems....
    The most of my friends and all of my adult relatives are studied, and I don┤t think, that all studied persons are stupied, chaotic or whatever, but the most stupied situation I┤ve ever seen, based on studied persons with some students. They nailed an 100m wire with 120 lines with thick nails on the floor ┤cause they can┤t find a tape to fix it. 2 hours later was a concert for really many persons, it was very funny (ironic). The best? They think, the wire wasn┤t o.k. and complained it.
    And about non-specialists: I know it is a cute film... but have you ever seen `Lorenzo┤s Oil`? Also a non-studied person can learn/find out more about a thema then the best specialsit, or?
    I think, a friendly formulation is the best way, to declare an opinion, so the possibility, that the other person can share it, is higher ( an angry person hears maybe not , what you try to say), or?
    Bye and have a nice day.
