Berthold Run

Dream a little dream of huh?

So Dream-Me figures I can flirt with someone really cute by talking to her about the music of Michael Kamen. (Hey, Kamen was a lusty guy+...)

And that I can prevent someone running up to me and stealing the bike I'm on by just waiting long enough for him to forget that that was why he ran up to me in the first place.

And that guys dressed as Jason Voorheis and Freddy Krueger on Hawthorne Blvd. would be polite, which actually is probably true.

Good morning.

+ From a Film Score Monthly interview conducted while Michael Kamen was working on his score to 1995's Die Hard With a Vengeance:

Will Shivers: Do you have a favorite orchestra you like to work with?

Kamen: I don't have a favorite orchestra because they're all made up of wonderful musicians who have dedicated their lives to playing an instrument and that's always fascinating... it would be like a favorite position in sex. [interviewer laughs] They're all fantastic and there is no way you could...

Shivers: ...pick just one.

bin Laden

What I'm picturing:

A team got the word that it could be the team that would hunt down Osama bin Laden.

Troops or operatives or special forces or some group of people in the U.S. Armed Forces got that job.

As dangerous as war is, as possible as it is that people would go to that mission and perhaps not come back -- they have GOT to have been aware of the gravity of the job. And been completely ready for it.

We're hearing rumors that it was a manned operation, not a drone. As someone pointed out, that means someone is the someone who killed Osama bin Laden.

I hope that person is still with us. I hope that person's team is still with us.

I'm processing. And now President Obama speaks...
