      July Supporter Giveaway   07/01/2019

      It's Christmas in July! The winner of the July Supporter giveaway will receive this beautiful Barnes & Noble edition of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, as well as a special Charles Dickens tea by  theliteraryteacompany.co.uk .   I've been keeping this book a secret for so long (I couldn't wait until Christmas!) It's actually from a really lovely independent bookshop in Hay-on-Wye, the town of books. I'm so glad I finally get to show you! The picture doesn't even do it justice. A nice feature that you can't see in this image - the page edges are gold and (an extra surprise for the winner) the back is just as beautiful as the front! We also now have twice as much tea as previous giveaways!  (Thank you Literary Tea Company!)   As always, supporters are automatically entered into the giveaway and a winner will be chosen at random at the end of the month. If you want to enter this giveaway but you aren't a supporter, you can join in here https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum .   Good luck  
Kylie

Rest in Peace

I think my favourite Horner score is Wrath of Khan.  There are so many good parts to that score but the emotion in the piece as Kirk runs through the Enterprise to engineering sets up the scene that follows beautifully.

 

I have a number of his scores; Star Trek II and III, Rocketeer, Apollo 13, Titanic (which, I hasten to add, I always stop before Celine kicks off!) and Sneakers.

 

He leaves quite a body of work.  A good legacy.

Thank you for saying that :) I've always really admired that phrase. It means the utmost respect and admiration towards the deceased.

RIP Omar.

 

Those eyes, such wonderful eyes. 

 

I fell in love with Omar because of his eyes in Doctor Zhivago:wub:

Dr. Zhivago is one of my favorite films. Omar became a legend because of his role in the movie.

 

Lawrence of Arabia was a great start for him. In the film they show a distant speck in the desert and it slowly comes closer until finally you see a man riding a camel and then he unwraps his "scarf?" and the first thing you see is those eyes., unforgettable.

Oh I know.....I used to wonder who my mum was on about this Omar guy. One of her favourites and then I say Dr Zhivago....he had those eyes to get lost in....so sad he has passed.
